Hello Friends!Where do I begin on the journey through my foodie eats this weekend at Blend Retreat?
Are you ready to get completely overloaded with yummy food pictures??
|Dinner Friday night...oh em gee|
I didn't take nearly the amount of photos I would have liked to, however sometimes this can be a good thing. Photo-taking requires time that could be spent socializing and networking...that's my justification anyhow!
|It was fun watching all the bloggers take pictures :-)|
Maybe we can just start at the beginning...
After I got all checked in and got my enormous SWAG bag...
Cocktail hour: I had lots of water (I was so parched the entire weekend)
I also had some carrots and hummus. Lovely appetizer and it kind of gave me something to do while I warmed up to some new folks.
Dinner: Started out with a salad of very large greens that was awkward to eat. Just sayin.
There were even vegan/gluten free cupcakes!

Breakfast: There was a beautiful spread sponsored by Xagave.
I also had a side of yummy carrot muffin. (Did you know I like carrot cupcakes/muffins??)

One thing that Courtney said was that the important thing was to be consistent...as in blog every day. I'm not so great at this..and honestly it gives me anxiety to think that I need to blog every day. I feel like the quality may go down if I am posting just to post on a day that I don't have any specific inspiration or topic.
I might start with trying for 5 days a week, but we will see!
Lunch-ish: We went on a hike and I scarfed a Simply bar down (they sponsored the hike).
I also had the rest of my fitmixer amino acids and a banana.
We walked around the farmer's market after the hike (I thought we were looking for lunch but really the gals I was with were planning on going to yoga so didn't want a big lunch...my stomach growled in protest.).
bootcamp and the hike and walking. Needless to say...I was FAMISHED by dinner!
Dinner: We went to dinner at Avery Brewing Company.
|Amanda, Elizabeth, me, Julie, Courtney, Tina, Alyssa, Jillian, Katie, and Christine|
|Turkey sandwich with avacado, coleslaw and chips!|
We also went out to Rio on Pearl street...which is apparently a popular street in Boulder?
I had my first and only drink of the weekend...tequila shot! Thanks Christine! :-)

The last day of Blend! So sad!
And it was SO GOOD! It can pretty much replace an icecream craving any day.
Love Grown Foods granola. My first try ever and it was a match made in heaven!
To sum it all up...if you're a foodie..go to Blend next year! There's an abundance of good eats (and great company)! ;-)
Well I'm babysitting again and for some reason I am trying to finish this post while they are awake...not working so well!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Readers: Do you care how often I post? Do you look for consistency in posting?
