The Blended Blog Favorites

Happy Friday! Man it is hard coming back to work after such a great long weekend! Glad it is Friday and a long weekend, woo hoo! I thought today I would share some more Toronto stuff and tell you my favorite from each of the ladies from The Blended Blog.

In order of how we all met up.

Alison -

I was so happy that the first person I saw was Alison. Waiting for at the airport, wondering if it was going to be all awkward and wasn't and I am so glad that we got to see each other first. Sort of eased my nerves knowing someone before going to meet the rest. Although Alison is on the quiet side, she is super funny and randomly comes up with these one liners that make your sides hurt from laughing so hard.

Katie -

Oh goodness, Katie I'm pretty sure is never sad, she always has this smile on her face like what she just did was the best thing that has ever happened to you. She lights up the room and her laugh is contagious. Plus she's a really good shopping partner, thanks for helping me shop till I dropped!

Andrea -

Reading Andrea's blog you can read how excited she is about life, and you wonder can someone be that happy all the time? Yep you can, and Andrea is. She is one to make you feel so loved upon meeting you and really gives the BEST hugs that makes you feel like no matter what is wrong with life, her hug, smile and laugh can make the most unhappy day wonderful. I cannot wait to get to know her better and share all of the desserts with her. Plus her wardrobe? Better in person than seeing it on the blog.

Lisa -

I feel like I didn't get enough time with Lisa!  She is gorgeous and her clothes, man can I just say I want everything? She is a go with the flow kind of lady who made me feel not so crazy when I said it was cold out. She is the one who will listen to you and makes you feel like you are the most important thing at that moment.Thanks for trying all that food at dinner first before I even took a bite, I appreciate that.

Shaunacey -

My roomie this year and I am so glad that I did. She is one of the funniest people and keeps it real all the time, she says what everyone is thinking and I love her even more for that. I loved our mornings getting ready and talking make up and living real life, instead of online. Like we have been friends forever and are not just meeting for the second time. I cannot wait to see pictures of your newest addition!

Nicole -

My other roomie this year. I have been following her weight loss journey and man does she motivate. She is the one that took all of the photos and can I say how thankful I am for that? In my family no one brings a camera any more because they know I always have mine. It was nice to sort of relax and enjoy myself. She is hilarious and I loved every second of our mornings together. Talking make up, sharing what we each brought and coveting each others' make up stash, and then helping her to rationalize the reason she made VIB status. Also all the desserts, thanks for indulging with me on late night chocolate snacks and ice cream before lunch.

Deena -

What can I say about Deena that I have not already? She is one of the most caring people I know. She makes you feel like you have been friends forever. Her spirit and warmth is contagious. She loves to give hugs and wears her heart on her sleeve. I love when she gets her Deena thinking look, I'm always wondering what thoughts are swirling around in her head. She has the best ideas and makes The Blended Blog tick, thank you friend. I am forever grateful for all that you do!

Christy -

I knew that we would have so much in common. I could tell by our short interactions, and I was getting so excited before the trip to meet you as we were texting back and forth. I knew we would get along and pretty much feel like we have been friends forever. You have the cutest hair cut and can I say head shape without sounding weird, hehe. You are one of my favorite shopping partners and love that we fueled each others shopping habits.

Whitney -

You are are just as cute in real life as you are on your blog. Your smile and personality are so bubbly, you make me want to be around you all the time, soaking up everything you have to say. I loved getting to know you better and hearing all of your stories, I could have listening to you for days. That sounded weird, but it's true. Can we talk about your perfect hair for a second? Your curls, perfection.

Lana -

Last but certainly not least, Lana. My friend from the PNW. I am so sad that your flight got delayed and I got a few less hours with you. You give the best hugs and I look forward to them. Though this is only our second time meeting in person,  I feel like you are an old friend that I can tell anything to. You make it so easy to talk to you and not feel judged by what I say. I look forward to many more trips with you.

Thank you ladies for accepting me for me and not judging and only supporting. I could never have imagined when I started this blog 3 years ago to find such a great group of woman. I look forward to what our future holds both together and within our own lives. I will be cheering along with you. Love you all and now I can really call you really good friends.

Honorable Mention: While these girls were not there, I do want to mention them because they are after all a part of The Blended Blog.

Photo taken last year when we went to Vegas
Carrie: I met her last year and she is just the sweetest lady. She has a way of when you are talking to her makes you feel like you are the most important person there. I hope that next year she will be able to make it as well!

Photo taken last year in Vegas
Sheila: I also met her last year, we actually shared a bed, and sharing a bed with a stranger, well you bond after that, haha. She is the one to get you out of bed to go running at o'dark thirty, she motivates like no other. and then teaches you snapchat and you laugh for hours about nothing.
