Mixed Conference: I Carried A Watermelon

I grew up watching Dirty Dancing on repeat. You could play a song from the movie and I could tell you what was happening and what “Johnny” was doing at that moment in the movie. So, when I heard about MixedCon I was sold based on location alone. A chance to stay at the resort that the movie was filmed at? I’ll take it! Add to that an awesome set of speakers, 100 bloggers I’m dying to meet in person and snacks available all day long at every moment and I’m in heaven.
 {This is me carrying a watermelon - yepp, I’m a nerd.}
We were overwhelmed with swag from the amazing sponsors including: Oxo, Kitchenaid, Dixie Crystals, Hershey’s, Attune Foods, Way Better Snacks, Lucky Leaf, Dreamfields Pasta, Roland Foods, Cameron Hughes Wine, Creminelli, Anderson Seafood, Stonyfield, Le Creuset, Smith’s Edgeware, Dreamfarm, Wisconsin Cheese, Real Butter - thanks to each and every one of you! Let me just tell you that my pants are just a smidge tight from the constant eating. So worth it.The sessions were led by the very talented foodies - Bree of Baked Bree, Tami of Running with Tweezers, Laudalino and Denise of Chez Us, and Heidi Larsen of Foodie Crush. I loved them all.

On top of that there were two hands on workshops with Marian Poirier of Sweetopia for cookie decorating - seriously, her cookies are the best. Then, there was cake decorating with Duff Goldman - let me just tell you that my cake was beyond terrible!

Side notes: 
I love that Kita of Pass the Sushi can’t take a serious photo, she makes me happy.
Two new favorite foodies - Katie of Hungry Hungry Camera and Christy of My Invisible Crown.
Shout out to the Minneapolis foodies I finally got to meet in person - Angela of Angela’s Kitchen and Monique of Ambitious KitchenNone of it would have been possible without our lovely organizers - thank you ladies - bell’alimento and Doughmestic you girls sure know how to throw a party!
