Taylor and I rode together, and we were the first people to arrive. They had a little display set up to where we find our tables, and then each table was named by a big blogger. I sat at the Sincerely, Jules table. I gotta admit, I had never heard of her blog before then, but now I am hooked!
I really liked how we had assigned seating. I already knew a lot of the girls that were there, so it got me to talk and get to know people I probably wouldn't have visited with beforehand! There were two familiar faces at my table, Whitney, and Michelle (one of my bffs, no less).
After settling down, we immediately picked up and started browsing through the sponsor tables. Among them were The Impeccable Pig, Francesca's, Langford Market, Em&Lee Willa Boutique and Striped Shirt. They were some pretty awesome tables, and many of them were giving deep discounts or working out review deals with bloggers. I scored a deal with Striped Shirt and I have an awesome post about them coming your way!

We sat down to eat a yummy breakfast and start the panels. The blogger panel were the ladies behind the blogs Blog con Queso, Sugarlaws, Dismount Creative, Pretty Shiny Sparkly, and Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno. The sponsor panel included representatives from Langford Market, Francesca's, and Reward Style. Lisa O'Neill spoke on PR.
Pretty Shiny Sparkly. I have loved her blog for years and she is just super adorable, down to earth, and gave great advice. She knew who I was since I comment on her blog a lot, and that made me so giddy! I was such a nerd. I also thought it was destiny because we both wore polka dots.
