I recently attended the BlogHer Food conference in Austin, Texas. It was a complete blast! I ate ice cream sandwiches the size of face, listened to established bloggers speak, met Joy the Baker (my baking inspiration), and so many talented women who love food just as much as I do.

Here we are with Ree, also know as The Pioneer Woman. I also had the opportunity to meet her amazing sister Betsy, who runs Tasty Kitchen. Both were sweet and full of smiles.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I roomed with Christy from The Girl Who Ate Everything, Carrian from Oh Sweet Basil, and Kristy from Sweet Treats and More. I cannot tell you how much fun we had staying up late, laughing, and eating way too many Udi’s Snickerdoodles cookies (GO BUY THEM).

I already miss them terribly so please make sure you check out their fantastic food blogs!

I got to meet up with a few more of my favorites: Ali from Gimme Some Oven and Lauren from Climbing Grier Mountain. Love those girls.

After the trip, I kept thinking about how blessed I am. To be doing what I love, and to meet others who encourage and inspire me.

Other than that, here’s what else I’ve been up to:
