What I learned at Blend- Recap!

Holy Moly, Happy Friday everyone!!  I am back from a mini blog hiatus/vacation jetlag.  I have a bunch of posts lined up but wanted to start off Friday with a bit more on things I learned at Blend Retreat! Get ready for a picture heavy post!!

I learned:

Swag bags rock.

Lugging said swag bag plus weekend bag uphill, after 5 hour flight-from-hell + hour drive home at midnight, still reeling from GPP bootcamp workouts, do not.

GPP bootcamp workouts will leave you walking like a crippled old lady. Seriously, I was sore for DAYS!

Things that come in mini size, wrapped with ribbon, or in mason jars are adorable.

Snagged mason jar Chobani oatmeal for the plane ride.

I want to live in the mountains.  With this view.

Oh, and a 5 hour (middle seat) flight with screaming children, broken reading light, impossibly long wait for bathroom with multiple people cutting in front of me, aisle neighbor’s spouse yelling to her spouse right next to her while I am sleeping, and crazy turbulence make for the worst flight ever.  Ok, so this wasn’t at blend but damnnnn was it the worst flight I have ever had!

That about does it!  I plan to do more recaps soon (to include the last South Africa recap and Mexico vacation!) This weekend is jammed packed- happy hours with the bf’s friends in DC, brunch, farmers market and shopping with momma, and I am hopefully going to see Star Trek!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!  I plan to be back Monday with a marvelous post 🙂

  1. Good to meet you at Blend!! I didn’t know you were heading to South America after Blend?? Is that what I’m getting from this post?? Since you are a world traveler I definitely think I should take you with on my first (yes first) trip out of the country! 😉 Also I hate planes in the first place so that sounds like a nightmare flight!!

    haha Muesli Fusion guy… *sigh*

    • Great to meet you! Yup! I actually went to Mexico (Playa del Carmen) with my bf last Tuesday after blend! I am totally up for going with you to Australia!
