SNAP! Recap Part I {Friends}

Buckle up.
I have a LOT Of pics to show you!
I have so much I want to share, and tell you about my Trip last weekend.
So I am going to break it apart and share with you over the next few days…
A week ago,
in the wee hours of the morning I packed up my bags
with {LOTS} of shoes… 
I Know most of you are NOT surprised.
umm…  there were 14 pairs to be exact!
I said Goodbye to my Boys
And boarded an Airplane to Utah to attend my FIRST blogging conference.

To say that I had {FUN} would be a {MAJOR} understatement.
First of all,
I went with some of my most favorite girls from right here in AZ!
And got to be roommates with a few from Ohio too!
Who of course Kelli & I shared a little polka-dot love with…
{Matching PJ Pants}
{I am kinda bummed I didn’t get a pic of ALL of us wearing them}
But, I will have to say that getting to meet some of my Blogging “Idols” was a MAJOR
perk of attending SNAP!
I thought being Featured at Today’s Creative Blog was #BestDayofMyLife
But I am here to tell You, meeting Kim in person was JUST as good!
And then I Smooshed myself in-between the Infamous 
And created the #Tater-Smith Sandwich
Trust me. The next time you are in a room with these {2} you will want to get one too!
And this next person needs no intro…
She is just has Hot as her Hot pink Hair
And is truly beautiful from the inside out.

Always the life of the Party, & I just couldn’t keep track of her!
I am so glad I got to sneak in a pic of just the two of us!
If you would have told me a week ago that I would get to hang out with
Way Past Midnight…
 Eating Fry Sauce & Ice Cream at JCW’s
Laughing until we Cried, 
I Simply Would NOT have believed you. 
Really. I wouldn’t!
And then there was Sweet Amy
Who from the VERY first night,
In her Welcoming address Inspired {Me} .
To be a better Me, a better Mother, a better Wife & a better blogger.
I could just kiss her… oh wait! ;0)
I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how LUCKY I was to win a ticket to this amazing event.
Her Team of  Snapette’s
 Did an INCREDIBLE job putting this Conference together.
And I can’t THANK them enough for letting me be apart  of it in a small way. 
I made so many new friends, and reconnected with some old ones as well.
I Learned A LOT about myself and the direction I want to take this 
little blog of mine. 
Tomorrow, I have LOTS more to share with you.
So come back for some more.
I promise I will make it worth your while!
