Healthy Living Summit 2013

Why, Hello!
Happy Monday!

How was your weekend?

I got to spend my weekend among my fellow bloggers.
The Healthy Living Summit was held in Minneapolis this year.
Since it is a skip, hop, and jump away, I had no excuse not to go.

To be completely honest, I had no idea what to expect.
Keeping an open mind made a whirl of a difference!

I experienced so much I want to share everything,
But it is Monday and lets face it,
we just don't have the time,
or the energy..

So today I'm going to give you a glimpse.
Naturally, I'm going to start with the last day first.

The drive to Minneapolis was a dreary one.
Huge rain clouds greeted me!

Today's agenda was simple:
A 5k walk/run,
(I walked)
photo with the giant spoon,
and eat.
(but with a much smaller spoon)
I could handle that.
The spoon is a signature landmark of Minneapolis.
As many times as I am in the Twin Cities, 
this was my first time seeing it!

 I surivived navigating myself out of the city without the help of my Garmin GPS.
Pretty impressive for a girl with ZILCH for directional skills.
Does anyone else have issues with finding satellites in cities with a GPS?
After picking up my pups I decided to treat myself to ice cream.
Sully decided to make is presence known and chewed out the drive though guy.
So naturally,
Sully gets free ice cream and recieved more then me!
How does that happen?

Wild Harvest was a sponsor to the conference and was AMAZING!
They had mailed this tea in a teaser box earlier this month.
Came in super handy when I got home.
I can usually maintain a pretty strong immune system while at work surrounded by sick people.
But when I am in a large group of people for a long period of time,
like a wedding reception, 
(add blogging conference to that list)
I get allergic to people and my sinuses swell.
Yep, I'm weird..
Can't count how many cups of this tea I've nursed while trying kick this sinus cold!

While out to eat with my parents and picking up my pups,
our waiter made sure to let me know he was a MN Vikings fan,
and I was rocking my green and gold in MN..
It was kinda fun watching the Vikings loose on TV at the restaurant,
and watching the Packers score go up on an app on my phone.
Then the Vikings Lost.
Packers won.
And the waiter shut up.

Sully was one exhausted puppy by the time we finally made it home.
He decided my unpacked suitcase would make a good nesting spot for the evening.
Guess he wanted to go along! 

I'll talk more about the Healthy Living Summit on a later post!

What was the highlight of your weekend?
