TXSC -- Minnetonka Dinner

Let me start by saying that I truly had the best weekend in Austin. I had such a blast seeing all of my girlfriends, making new ones, and of course learning more about myself, and where I want to go with my blog. I have so many pictures to share, but I decided I am going to split it up, like I did last year as to not overwhelm myself or anyone else. I'm sure you understand :) Friday was spent with Minnetonka over at a special dinner they provided for some of the bloggers they have worked with and some new blogger guests (my plus 1's were Jenni & Lauren). The place was beautiful, the food was amazing, and as usual Minnetonka doesn't disappoint.

My favorite part about this dinner was being in a casual setting with a small group, and being able to actually have conversations that are more than "Hi here's my business card, bye." It was a perfect way to ease our way into the conference. I don't have many pictures of the remainder of the night because the swap was crazy packed, but I do have tons of pictures from the rest of the trip that I can't wait to share. Today is about getting life back on track and being home for once. (too much traveling!)
