Aw, Snap!

Got some photos to share with y’all tonight!! I met up with Monica [who is also here via American Express] and we headed to the evening reception by the marina just as the sun was setting

IMG_5156 (640x427)

I found a local beer and was excited to fine amber + caramel malt at a mobile bar. My kinda beer!

There were lots of healthy vegetable friendly options too! They were quite good and gourmet and beautifully presented!! I filled up in 2 of each kind

After we mingled, we headed to to a special suite that Stonyfield was hosting – with a surprise – their new Greek FROZEN yogurt! All the deliciousness and protein of Oikos in a frozen form!

Vanilla, Honey, Chocolate and Blueberry – coming soon!

I tried them all – I liked the honey the best : ) 

IMG_5183 (640x427)

And those are big Whole Foods marshmallows – caramel flavor – that I am now obsessed with. I’m dying to roast marshmallows this summer!

I stole this little munchkin from Amelia of Eating Made Easy (and KERF reader!). Gotta teach the young ones about good food early!

Our night ended at SPARKLECORN!

IMG_5196 (640x427) (2)

One of the famous old school Blogher parties that is now officially part of the agenda.

I got a bourbon on the rocks sparkling water with my drink ticket. I was thirsty!

After playing with the glow sticks for a while, Monica and I decided to walk home. I have another early start tomorrow – including yoga and breakfast with a celebrity!

The Veggies look great!
Wow….”Sparclecorn” must be the most girliest name of a party ever… but I guess it’s a women blogger conference after all.

Whoa…seeing you with the baby…you are a natural mother, Kath. Tick, tock, goes the clock :) Maybe not, but whenever the time is right, you’ve got story-reading down pat already!

The sunset reception along the Marina..nice. Looks beautiful and what a nice spread they put out.

Veggie options AND those marshmallows…perfect.

Yoga and breakfast with a celeb? how awesome. Can’t wait to hear the deets!

SO jealous of your breakfast with Bob! I mean seriously – does anything get better than Bob + Quaker??

Also – I LOVE those photos of you with Amelia (she is absolutely adorable). Those pictures are definitely keepers (and it makes me think you’ll be such a good/natural mom! <– no hints, no pressure, just a regular old statement! ;) )

Enjoy yoga this morning and take pictures of Bob!

You have so much self-control….glow sticks are a deal breaker. When I see them I immediately need to drink and feel like I am at a 1999 Rave! :-)

If those veggie finger foods tasted as good as you made them look, I would have been in heaven!
Adorable pictures with the kid :)
And I’m proud of Stonyfield for that innovation- I bet it’s going to be the next food fad!
Anndddd I think you have us all on tenterhooks about who this celeb you will be breaking your fast with is…

I was so excited for photography class photos when I saw the “oh snap!” The receptions look gorgeous, though. Awesome weather, a nice drink. Even at a convention, it looks like blissful summer. And those appetizers make me swoon.

You look like such a natural with that baby…so sweet! I don’t like yogurt (totally wish I did) or anything too creamy, did the frozen stuff have the tartness that regular yogurt has? I’m interested since I can eat frozen yogurt, but the frozen greek yogurt might be too tart/creamy for me.

Some days I wish food could just magically appear like they seem to do at conferences and the like :)

Curious, how does a blogger get sponsored by American Express to appear at BlogHer? I think it’s great, by the way. I just discovered the blog community since I’ve been home during the week with Levi and I’m intrigued by it all.

By the way, when you return to C’ville we should try to have a little cookout at our place…roast some mallows :) I haven’t had any all summer!

47 KathEats August 6, 2011 at 3:39 pm

They emailed me to see if I was interested. They’re hard to seek out..

We’d LOVE to do a marshmallow cookout!

So glad to hear that you had fun at Sparklecorn! I’m a MamaPop writer and it really sucked to not be able to go to our party this year.

Sparklecorn!!!
I’ve never been to BlogHer, but I’ve been reading Amy’s blog (Amalah.com) for years, and she is one of the main organizers of Sparklecorn. Jealous! Did you see all the Justin Bieber posters? ha,ha.

I’d love to see how Stoneyfield does the Greek froyo. I’m not impressed with the ingredient list on their regular frozen yogurt, unfortunately.
