This last week/weekend, Ashley B and I packed our bags and traveled to Atlanta, GA for our first Mom 2.0 Summit conference.
We were nervous and overwhelmed since we didn’t know anyone except ourselves and knew there were a lot of “popular” bloggers that were going to be there.
Upon arriving we got changed into our prettiest Garden Party dresses and went to The Estate.
There we met the sweet Julie Plake. She indulged in some delicious desserts with us. I especially enjoyed the Carvel Cake!
Friday was our first full day….We were inspired and excited to meet the vendors, sponsors, and putting faces to @-signs and email addresses.
Ash and I were winners up for a room makeover with the Sleep Foundation. We learned some GREAT tips on how to sleep well and get our children to sleep well (just need to put it to action!) We were SO thankful to receive amazing swag bags to help transform our rooms to help us sleep better.
We were able to meet the founder of The Motherhood, whom we had been doing some work with over the last few weeks…that was SO awesome!
Friday night we went to some ‘suite’ parties. Check out these inspiring bellies!!
THEN, Ashley and I were invited to an awesome dinner from the Abbott group with Similac. They treated us to an amazing dinner and we were able to meet fellow bloggers and share some great ideas with one another. This opportunity alone made the trip fantastic!!
On Saturday we attended MORE panels and workshops. Learned a ton from Jon Armstrong and how to edit on our phones. And then attended a fantastic session from the talented Farrah Braniff on lifestyle photography. We had a traditional high tea for lunch….how sweet is this!???
We then attended my FAVORITE part of the conference: round table sessions. I learned so much from these few sessions!!
Saturday evening we attended the Iris Awards, which was a wonderful way to honor our fellow bloggers and celebrate the writing and creativity we have all put into our work.
Ash and I headed out a little early to grab dinner…we were the ONLY ones on the charter bus and the sweetest bus driver took us to The Cheesecake Factory. I have never felt so cool to pull up to a restaurant in a ‘little black dress’ in a streeeeeetch limo;)
…only to find out that The Cheesecake Factory was closed.
So we settled for sushi.
It was okay….
And that was a wrap!!
