Last night I had the opportunity to join the MN Bloggers for a private event at the newest See’s Candies location in Southdale Mall. Honestly I was a little nervous to go. My first meetup event. I read a bunch of these girl’s blogs and know about them, but have never met. Nerve-wracking. But on the other hand, it was an opportunity to meet some cool girls I already know I like. Plus turning down free chocolate would be difficult to justify. Then Leah tweeted me asking if I was going. I had an ally going. That made it final: I was going!
I am so glad I went. I got to meet little Miss Hailey (she’s pretty adorable) and talk to some really fun ladies. I felt like I was really awkward st points, so if I made weird, awkward small talk, sorry. It’s just part of my charm. I was nervous. 🙂
The wonderful people at See’s let us try any treat we wanted. Guess what? They do that everyday! I will be coming back. Multiple times.
We even got to try our hand at packing a box of candy. Definitely harder than it sounds! Mine looked less than professional. Good thing it was still delicious.
We were all sent home with a tote bag [love them even more!] filled with an obscene amount of chocolate and other candies. Seriously. We can’t be trusted with that many sweets in my house. One or more of us has zero self-control. I had to give some to my mom and sister this morning. The lollypops are niece approved, btw. And I brought the big box into work today. So I’ve been popular.
Here is Avery last night, helping herself to seconds. Or thirds. We lost count. See? No self-control.
I had so much fun! Can’t wait to do it again!
A bunch of the girls wrote some great posts about last night here. Plus they took some better pictures than I did. Hop over and check them out!
