Blog Her Food Day 2

11 Comments 1764 views

Another great day in Seattle! Again it’s late, I’m tired, and in a way, speechless. So many great conversations. So many great people. So many pictures! I’m spent. Let me do a quick recap and then go to bed!

I reached my goal of 1 run in Seattle…

Run Seattle Nike+
Chart from Nike+

I may go again tomorrow OR I may sleep in. Totally depends on how I feel in the morning. :)

Ever wonder what a blogging geek looks like at one of these type of events? Well here you go..

I’ve officially embraced my dorkiness.

I mean, seriously. Look at me. Camera in hand, thick framed glasses, name tag. And what am I doing at 1 AM?

BLOGGING!

’nuff said.

Anyway, on the way downstairs I tried the Starbucks refresher they left in my room.

Not bad. And only 60 calories. Not sure I’d buy one though. Only because I’m not a carbonated sweet drinker.

Breakfast was similar as yesterday but with bagels instead of eggs, bacon, and sausage.

Thankfully Chobani was there so I made a giant yogurt parfait with cocoa nibs, berries, almonds and a bit of granola.

The morning panel was fabulous.

That’s @JoryDJ, @McGlamorous, @Bobs_Red_Mill, @SimplyRecipes, and @SteamyKitchen discussing the relationship between brands and bloggers. It was fascinating and very relevant to me as I continue down my path of professional blogging.

The rest of the morning I spent bouncing around sessions and enjoying my sample KIND Bar.

Then it was off to Pike Place Market.

Did you notice the gorgeously pregnant Kath?

I loved the market. So much fun stuff to look at and explore.

I think I would eat totally differently if I lived close to something like this. There were just so many options!

We wondered around the market and stumbled across the The Pink Door.

Katie, Kath, Heather, and I…

…shared the most amazing appetizers…

When I got back I had a much needed Skype call with The Boys.

I made it down for the keynote and must admit, got sucked in.

It was Kim Sunee talking about her book Trail of Crumbs. It may be my next audiobook for runs!

The rest of night was drinks with new friends, a trip to the good bye reception…

…and Sushi with Danguole, (me,) Katie, and Annelies.

We made our way to Hula Hula and had fun watching Karaoke. It was crowded so the girls didn’t get a chance to sing. I won’t use that as an excuse because I’m just a big chicken. I fear the Karaoke stage! BUT it’s on my bucket list. I will sing Karaoke before I die. Mark my words. I want to overcome the fear.

Anyway, the girls decided on a cab home but I opted to walk back to the hotel. It was just over a mile and I wanted to just be.

It was the most perfect way to end my day. :)

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.

    Did you catch them making cheese at Beecher’s down in the market? I was a cheesemaker there until about a week ago! I must say that I didn’t use the market to its advantage while I worked there, usually paying more attention to the fabulous pastries than produce. Ah well. Cool to see your adventures around my city!

    I read about your lunch on Kath’s blog first. How fun to see the same foods photographed by my two most favorite blogers!

    You are a blogging superhero! I was completely spent last night.

    P.s. Who’s photobombing your sushi? What a weirdo.

    Paige – I didn’t but I’m heading back down today! I’ll go check it out.

    Would love to help you cross off karaoke on your bucket list – it’s fun, and I know since you like dancing around your house so much you love music and probably sing there, too ;)

    Your yogurt parfait looks yummy. Looks like you are having a good time.

    I assist with planning events. I try to be careful when ordering food and making sure there is a variety. Doesn’t look like there would be much for a diabetic this day.
