#BlogElevated 2014 Conference Recap - Day 1

Just in case you missed Day 1 of Blog Elevated, here is my recap from today!  Hello, my name is ....

First things first, make sure you stop by the REGISTRATION table to get your name tag, lanyard, conference folder, and swag bag.
This year I am volunteering.  I said hi to about 75 conference attendees at the registration table when they checked, and will be at the registration table again tomorrow.  I had a lot of fun working the registration table today meeting and greeting everyone as they came in.  This was a great way to meet bloggers, sponsors, speakers, and of course friends I already know.

The welcome party got started and thanks to Imperial Sugar I was able to make some scrubs to take home:

If you would like to learn how to make these or check out more recipes, go to  These sugar scrubs are a great DIY idea to make for the upcoming holidays.  You can even personalize and print labels.
 Day 1 was a lot of fun, we even had 'Smores !  Not to mention the perfect night breeze, glow lights, and great company all around.
I cannot wait for the break out sessions.  If you are not at the conference, follow the conference
hashtag, #blogelevated.  Day 2 is sure to BE an awesome day!

I love it!! I didn't end up coming b/c I knew I wouldn't be able to concentrate with my active nursing baby with me.. I'm so sad I missed such a great weekend!! I'm glad to read about it here.
