Ok, seriously.. I had a BLAST. I talked too much and slept too little. I ate intuitively and sampled everything. It was a nice escape yet exhausting. It was a great 3 days.

I’m up too late, yet again! Tomorrow I’ll be running around beautiful Chicago as I attempt 12 miles. I gotsta go and get some sleep!

Oh! Before I go… Check out 10 random things I learned at BlogHer and these were the fabulous Food Bloggers I had dinner with yesterday. Seriously, I was honered to be invited!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I am so jealous that you were able to attend that. It looks like so much fun. I love the t-shirts. Also, if I met Ree Drummond I might pee my pants. Further, Esther and I went to high school together..the good ole’ days in Corvallis, Oregon. She’s a gem. Glad that you’re enjoying it.

    Now that I have a blog, I hope I can go next year! The pictures are really fun to look at!

    wow, that looks like a GREAT time! Wish I could have been there!


    July 26, 2009

    It was really great to meet you! The dinner was a lot of fun.

    (I’m also laughing at your sidebar with “current weight” and “goal weight.” Story of my life. But as long as I’m staying close to goal most of the time, I feel like I’m doing okay. You look great! I admire your commitment to fitness. I’m starting to get back in shape after two years of stress and not enough exercise.

    Haha, I look…surprised :)

    Great to meet you, Roni! It looks like you had a fantastic weekend, too. I love the fitness blogger shirts that you and Carla are wearing!


    July 26, 2009

    WOW! Looks like you had a great time. I just can’t get over that Ragu Sauce made of veggies :)
    That is crazy.
    I really hope that you share more of what you learned from the conference. As a new blogger I would love to hear more :)

    It was so fun to chat with you this weekend! Congrats on the big run this morning! I will be running the 5K next year. I’m making that commitment to you today!

    It was great meeting you this weekend, Roni! How funny that we ran into each other right away on the shuttle bus (with the driver with the never-ending spiel). Nice blog!

    great roundup! Sorry I missed the chance to chat with you more at the food bloggers dinner, we could have had fun. In addition to cooking, I am pretty sporty, especially with outdoor activities. We could have had a blast comparing stories!
