BYB 2013 Memories

Pin It!
I just went to the 
Build Your Blog Conference
this weekend & I had a wonderful time.

If you have a goal to improve your blog,
I really recommend attending a conference!

I met so many wonderful bloggers!
And I got to see my buddy, Brooke Walker.
I'm so flattered when people tell me we could be sisters.
{Except it's more like I could be her mother!}
Anywho, she was the keynote speaker & I love her!

Here are some of the darling people I saw at BYB.

{I couldn't find the name for some of them -
if you know the ?'s would you please leave me a comment?}
In the photo above, {L to R} me, Kari from Newlyweds on a Budget, Paula from The Real Housewives of Riverton, under her with the pretty red hair, Emily Sanders from Persona,
McKenzie from Girl Loves Glam, Whitney from A Mommy's Life with a Touch of Yellow {with her apprentice}


-This "Little Miss Momma" look-alike is actually the darling Alyssa from The Recipe Critic


{L to R} Holly & Natalie from My Sister's Suitcase, McKenzie {again, she is one of my favorites!}, Andie from Maybe I Will, & finally, stalking the back of Holly's outfit because I liked it so much 

I was particularly thrilled to see the two
people below . . . 

Amanda from Kevin & Amanda was a guest speaker.
Her blog was one of the first I ever read 
& I've loved it ever since. So great to her in person!

When I asked if I could join the bloggers at the table, above,
this little sweetie stood up & came over to me.
She said, "I know you Michelle!" & gave me a hug.
Her name is Carly from Old Farm Road.
{I didn't recognize her because she's grown up a lot since she used to play with my little boys.}
Carly, seeing you absolutely made my day!

Many thanks to the Six Sisters
their family for a great conference!

    You have so many look alikes and I loved Megan from Brassy Apple's hair soooo much, I might just steal her hairstyle.
    Also loved the chevron sweater that one girl was wearing....cute and so trendy.
    Fun!!!

  11. It was so fun meeting you, Michelle. In your sixth photo, the lovely, Maria Lichty, of two peasandtheirpod, is in the bright geometric print dress on the left. She and four other foodies presented at bybc13. It was a very informative panel.
