Weekend View~ Catching up

I have so much to tell you about my trip to Atlanta and all that I did while at the Haven conference.
I know it's Monday
and technically not the weekend
but I am playing catch up so am sharing the Weekend View a little late.

There was so much to do and to learn and I had the best time meeting friends and being reunited
 with my GMC family 

It was a busy couple of days
with limited amount of sleep
and an abundance of laughter and fun

There were sessions to learn about blogging
about ad networks
about design and writing.

and it seemed like around every corner was another blog friend 
to meet in person

Moi & Rebecca
I didn't take nearly as many photos as I should have. 
I admit it... bad.blogger. But I guess it was really more about just enjoying
I did grab some photos of the hotel grounds on the way to Starbucks 
which was just around the corner and was a two times a day to re-fuel stop 

I traveled to the conference with GMC representing them and sharing my experience on the 2013 Hidden Treasure Adventure while attending classes and mingling.  
There was also one lucky blogger attending who was chosen to travel on the 2014 Hidden Treasure Adventure next month.  So excited for her! It is such an amazing trip!
You can read all of my posts about my experience on the Adventure

The conference was so much fun in so many ways
and I learned a ton- about blogging, about myself and much more.

There were a couple of firsts - like going out for a run in the what felt like 800% humidity

  We took crazy photos at the parties
and met this guy.

 I mean, all of that together- blogging, friends and lots of laughter and fun
Does a conference get any better?

I'll share more about some of the specifics of blogging or design that I learned another time
Also,  I have been working on some upcoming exciting things over here- blogwise and otherwise and am excited to share more with you about those things soon.

It's going to be a hot one today
 I went from hot and humid in Atlanta to hot, hot, hot in California. We are supposed to get close to 100 degrees today- so I am off to get some exercise and then get to work on a few things.

I also wanted to let you know that I posted about Summer Bedding
over on the HomeGoods blog today
as well if you would like to take a peek!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
