This past weekend I headed back to my hometown for a conference with some of my favorite bloggers, old friends that it was great to see and lots of new ones. After a few days of fun meetings, happy hours, educational sessions and a final Texas style soiree at the Southfork Ranch, we were exhausted – but in the best way. Blair and I stayed at her parents’ house for the weekend and were inspired by so much of what we heard and started thinking about during the trip. Outside of learning amazing new things, it was so wonderful to connect with other bloggers in person (especially since we already follow along with everyone’s lives).
I’m spending one extra day in the Lone Star State with my family which is something I’ve been looking forward to all weekend! I’m still catching up and won’t be getting home until tomorrow basically. There were just too many pictures to share with you all on Instagram and to be totally honest I found myself away from my phone for a lot of the weekend, so I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today!
One of my favorite instagram addictions as of late is a service called “Like To Know It“, where you can sign up and shop items directly from an Instagram picture before it ends up on my blog (or in some cases things that don’t!). Once you sign up, all you have to do is like the photo and you’ll receive an e-mail in your Inbox with the products for you to shop at your convenience. The best part is, you can set your e-mail settings however you’d like – I get mine ASAP and look at them later, but you can change to your preferences to Daily or Weekly. Looking forward to sharing my weekend looks with you in the next few days!
