Earlier in the day, we had walked around Portland and visited a local Farmer's Market. It was SO perfect -- much better than Eastern Market in DC that I'm used to. This one was huge and all the fresh fruit and veggies sitting out were awesome. I ordered some white raspberries and ate the whole sweet basket!
The atmosphere was relaxing and happy with plenty of hippies around making music to give it a distinct Portland feel. Here's a little slideshow of photos I took (discovered a super easy way to put this together and make it look professional with Photo Peach ):
Oh yeah, Friday night we had dinner at Merriwether's -- a suggestion from Kristina ! Thank you for that because it was awesome
Overall, I had such a great time at Fitbloggin in Portland. It was awesome to go to a new city and make so many great connections with bloggers and brands.
My favorite session was definitely "Getting Paid v. Paying your Blogger Dues" lead by Leah Segedie, who runs Bookie Boo and writes for Mamavation . She knew what she was talking about and I got some great advice on how to add business for that side of my blog. Very cool and I'm excited to get started! Actually, coming soon -- a blog makeover! I'm going to change up the site a bit -- can't wait!
PS -- I will announce the winner of BOTH Mizuno Give-aways tomorrow!
