Blogfest 2014: What I Learned

Hey friends!  Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on Tuesday’s post!  I really feel like such a lucky lady these days! :)  

Apologies to all my non-blogger readers but this post is heavily geared towards other bloggers.  You might still find it interesting to get a taste of the “behind the scenes”  otherwise: big hug and thanks for stopping by today!

I’ve already recapped all the fitness highlights from Blogfest 2014 but I haven’t really given you the info on everything I learned from the amazing sessions I got to attend (in case you missed it, my recap on the fitness events is here and Les Mills Summer Games is here).  There were so many informative sessions with knowledgeable and inspirational speakers. Here’s the rundown on What I Learned at Blogfest 2014!

Baby B’s Shower

Oh hi!  I’m so excited to give you all the details on Baby B’s shower today.  I am probably the luckiest mama-to-be in the world because my mother threw me the most beautiful baby shower a girl could have.  Plus, I had two very special guests attend my shower.  My sister-in-law and mother-in-law flew in from Australia for the weekend to spend some time with us and attend my shower!  Can you believe it!?!  It was so nice to have them there!

One Day in Martha’s Vineyard

Hi there! How was your weekend? Can you believe next weekend is Labor Day!?! I’m flabbergasted. I honestly don’t know how this summer has gone by so fast! I had the most lovely weekend with my baby shower on Sunday. I’ll have the full recap for you on Baby Day Tuesday.

When I was on Cape Cod recently, the Hubs and I decided to spend one day on Martha’s Vineyard (luckily we planned to go the day before the president and his crew descended!). Growing up in a suburb of Boston summers on the water were a regular part of my life. My father is an avid boater and so we would spend our summers traveling by boat to the various islands off of the Cape. No island was more popular with us than Martha’s Vineyard.
