FitBloggin is Fabulous

The Nines Hotel in Portland

Where do I start? FitBloggin was beyond amazing…met so many amazing people that will be friends forever…

Thanks to Nutrex Hawaii (the people that fuel my spirulina obsession) they sent me to FitBloggin…and it was a fabulous holiday and time to make awesome connections.

FitBloggin was hosted at The Nines, a super fun and swanky

I loved my room…just beautiful! They even would leave chocolate brownies and fresh slippers at bedtime…I felt so “Audrey Hepburn”.

FitBloggin Expo

The expo at the conference – lots of amazing sponsors and SO much swag! Not sure how I’ll bring it all home!

MizFit and Charissa

Mizfit!!! This woman is really quite amazing and her sense of fun just leaves me grinning!

Kelly Olexa and Charissa

I finally met Kelly Olexa – I LOVE her so much. I need more of her in my life. She’s the genius founder behind FitFluential and I just love her…but I said that already. Whatev. She’s great…that’s all I can say.

The sessions were fabulous – a wealth of information…it was centered more on the basics of blogging, but I definitely came away with some new things to think about…

I even got to try out the Total Gym (very cool piece of equipment) and was super impressed with how many exercises you could do with one piece of fitness equipment.

Kure Juice

During the break a group of us headed out to Kure Juice and tried some of their delicious juices and smoothies. Somehow during the conference I found myself there a couple times…it was that nice. Somehow a fresh, green juice just hit the spot!

It was special to hang out with Heather and Gina…they’re both SUPER sweet gals and you just can’t help but smile around them.

The lovely folks at Laughing Cow Cheese took us for a ladies’ evening out…

Ladies night out

The other half of us – the two ladies from Laughing Cow (Brittney you’re fabulous!), Anne, Julie, Erika, and Kasy.

Ladies nite out

For dinner, Kasy, Heather, Erika, Bobbi, and I headed out to a BEAUTIFUL restaurant where we sat outside in a beautiful garden. Most of us had risotto on our minds and enjoyed every bite. During the weekend we spent a good amount of time together and I just LOVE these ladies…LOVE.

Now I’m just waiting for my flight to come home…Portland, OR to my Canada…

More FitBloggin fun coming up…and don’t forget that my Instagram Challenge for July is starting today!! So COME join in on the fun!
