Went to The Hundred Event...You Know...Bought a House

11 August 2014

We're back from Dallas and The Hundred Event.
What an amazing amazing event - so many exquisite details, so many things to learn, and so many old and new bloggy friends to chat and laugh and chat with. Lauren, Grace, Bridget, and Megan done did this right.

I was pretty intimidated to pack myself and my dinky family blog up for a real blogging conference, but I quickly connected with Blythe, Nell, Olivia, Britt, and Katrina. We started a group text, and then we were off to the races.

I went to sessions on freelance writing and photography, I discovered lots of new brands, and I got to hear Kendi herself talk about her blogging journey. I made new friends like Katie and Joanna and Kelly and Taylor and Indiana.

And. The. Food.

I might have to become a restaurant blogger now. On Saturday we had pizza from Il Cane Rosso: some of the best pizza I've had stateside. And I used to live in Italy so that means I have a lot of autorita on this subject.

And THEN I ate one of the most delicious sandwiches of my life from Ruthie's Party Truck. If you live in Dallas, go hunt that truck down and have yourself a Summer Chick Special before the season is over and then join me in never using anything but muenster on a grilled cheese ever again.

We pulled into our driveway in the wee hours of the morning, stumbled ourselves and our littles into bed, and one short sleep past we woke and bought a house.



More details to come.
