It was a sweet day...

I think the best part of joining the blogging world for me has been meeting new friends...surprising as it might sound...I am a pretty shy person...I find it hard to put myself out there...in the real world...I can't just walk up to some one and ask if they want to be my friend...I think that's why this blogging world has appealed to me so much...anyway...enough with me...here are two new friends I met this past Sunday...this is Holly and Tammy...I was lucky to meet them in person because of the Blog Sugar conference we were all attending...
We met up with Kris, Tammy, Holly and Jen at Islands on the way to Blog Sugar...it was like we had known them all for years! I met Kris a little over a year ago and she is just the sweetest...and her daughter, Jen is too! It was the first time I had met Jen...but I felt I knew her through her Mom's site...
In the park outside the event there was this Viet Nam War Memorial...there was a fountain flowing down all around it...it was a sad but beautiful place....
There were pretty pink roses along the walk way up to Blog Sugar...
And here we are at the entrance...everything was done with such perfect details...
There was a drink station outside...and a snack station with fruit and cheese...even a cotton candy station and a photo booth...
The tables inside were lovely...
such pretty flowers on the table...we all loved the combination of the orange and pink!
Even a little donut by each place to welcome us! It was a nice time...I met a few new people...listened to some other bloggers talk about interesting topics...we had a nice dinner...
And then the sugar rush began...


I learned some new things, met some new friends, ate too much and spent a great day with my sister, Debbie...all in all...a nice day...now to try to use what I learned and jump in there and be the best blogger I can be...which is one who respects all of you out there wherever you are...and what you do..you mean more to me than you will ever know..and for that I thank you!!
Have a great day, my friends!!

Looks like a very fun day and I enjoyed your pics! I'm the same as you - sort of shy and quiet in "real life" (until I get to know a person well) which is why blogging suits me so well! Thank you for stopping by my blog and your post on my hometown visit! Nice to meet you!
Hugs, Cindy
