1. I like buffalo burgers.
I had just told Nicole that I don't order burgers at restaurants earlier in the day. Then we ended up eating at Wasatch Brewery and I ordered a big ole burger...with sweet potato fries! It was super awesome! Great flavor in the lean meat and perfect smoke from the grill.
2. I can hold a really long plank. Like a 5 min 30 sec long plank!
Orlando from Onnit held a little competition at the end of their sponsored workout Saturday morning. I thought, ok, a plank. I can do that for awhile. I made it my goal to last at least 3 minutes. With the support of many other women cheering me on after they'd already dropped, I made it to 5 minutes and 30 seconds! I'd only gone that long one other time in my life and that was a year and a half ago. Finally, I just couldn't hold it any longer and just missed out on the prize placing 5th, I believe. Oh, well. I was still really proud of myself for going that long!
3. I'm confident and laid back in what could be an otherwise nerve-wracking situation.
I'll credit it to the fact that I attended Blend last year, but I was 100% at ease the whole weekend. I was excited and happy to talk to new people, I wasn't nervous or worried about what others thought of me, I was just me! I had a great time connecting with my old Blends and learning about and bonding with new ones! I had a GREAT weekend and can't wait to do it again!
4. I will be visiting Boulder, CO next May!
I was soooo excited when the event planners made the announcement of where Blend will be held next year. No more waiting 7 months to find out! Hopefully everything will align well and I'll be attending again. Yay for cheaper airfare! ...or at least a destination that's driveable, if needed. :)
5. I love my Blends and the blogging community!
I definitely already knew this, but weekends like the one I just experienced solidifies it even more! I love the girls I've known for over a year now, and I also love the ones I bonded and connected with in just a few short days! It really is amazing how fast some of us click and become in real life friends and I'm so grateful for that. Now I want it to be September (so I can see a bunch of them again at HLS) and then next May (for Blend 2015)!
