Blogger Blitz Chicago

I guess it's a sign of a super-fun weekend when you feel exhausted on Monday.  I can't complain too much though... the past couple days were jam-packed with good things.  And I'm heading home this week to see my family and have some down time (soooo excited!).

This weekend... besides dinner + a movie with some of the girls, yoga, a bridal shower (complete with limo transportation, Mexican food and sangria, and bar-hopping afterwards), Mass, and a couple of drinks on the porch with friends... I attended Blogger Blitz Chicago!

{av} from {long distance loving} organized and hosted the event, which was on the fabulous rooftop at Market.  Though it was a million degrees outside, we all braved the heat to meet and greet fellow bloggers.  It was great to see some new faces and catch up with some of my blogging buddies.

I didn't get pictures, but some of the other ladies did.  Using the handy-dandy blogger directory we each received, I put together a list of everyone who signed up for the event (many of them posted recaps and pics of Blogger Blitz too!).

Jennifer Darling Notes
Mariel Mariel's Window (she posted lots of good photos!)
Melissa Inspiration and Rough Drafts ... that's me :)

And here's the adorable goody bag, very helpful blogger directory, and my glittery nametag (um... love!).  The pretty notecards were from The Scribble Pad.... can't wait to use them for some special notes.

Bonus picture... Because I can't have a drink or two with friends without snacks, Scott and I made a run to the store and put together a little spread on Sunday.  It was easy and yummy... just what I needed at the end of a long, fun weekend. 

And yes, that's a bowl full of cherries... how appropriate, right? :)


  1. Hi Melissa! It was so great catching up with you over the weekend. As much fun as big meet-ups are, we should try to get together sometime before the next one!

  2. So nice to meet you at the Blitz! Love your blog!


I'd love to hear from you!
