I Went To #SnapConf

…and it was great.

You guys.  There are big things going on.  And I wish I could tell you what.  But I can’t yet.

haha, how much do you hate me for saying that?!  SO MUCH?!  I promise I’ll tell you as soon as possible.  Soon.  Soon, soon, soon!


But I did go to Snap!  It’s my home town, so naturally I had to party it up with other creative bloggers.

I have been so so so (SOOOOOO) busy with secret combinations on the homefront, but I made it to as many classes as I could.  Of course I went to the parties.

Blog conferences are great.  I love being able to hang out with my internet friends IRL.  It makes me feel less weird about having online best friends.

Snap! conference was very child friendly, so I got to bring Evelyn Faye along.  I’m completely convinced that if she were to be snatched, it would be at a blog conference.  Everyone loved getting to squeeze and pinch her.  And she payed very good attention in class.

But to be completely honest, 92% of my pictures are from the 80’s dance party.  I’ll spare all the wild pictures, and instead throw this gif in your face.

I promise Evelyn had a good time.  She didn’t cry.  In fact, I’ve never seen her smile more.

And of course, Aaron got his dancin in too.

We got to hang out lots with Nick & Beth while they were here.  They even came over to our house.  Let me tell you, it’s pretty nerve wracking having a blogging friend come to your house!

I sure am blessed to be surround by amazing, talented, creative people!  The world of DIY blogging is a community I am grateful to be a part of.  This post is mainly to express my thanks and gratitude for the many friendships I’ve gained from this wonderful adventure!  I love you all and I love how much you all inspire me.

  • Darn people and their secrets. 😉

    This post was good because I’m about 2 seconds from chickening out of Haven. Now I’m like 5 seconds.

    • Kenz

      I so wish I was going to Haven this year. I was lucky I had pregnancy as an excuse last year to avoid social gatherings. I’m pretty much the most awkward person you’ve met.

  • Cassie Bustamante

    looks like you had an amazing time! nothing like dancing with a baby to 80’s music with a side pony.

    • Kenz

      There really is nothing like it 🙂 I’m fully prepared to end up on “bad parenting dot com”

  • Seriously – the picture of you and E on the dance floor. I die. Henry and i just watched it over and over. Too stinking cute.

    Can’t wait to hear your secret.

    • I’m actually planning to beat it out of you.

      • Kenz

        hahahahahahaha. When are they going to build a bridge between Utah and Iowa? I need more Kim in my life.

  • the ’80s dance party looks awesome! What a fun conference 🙂

    • Kenz

      It was! I’m glad it was here in SLC so I didn’t have to travel. That made it super convenient.

  • Amber @ Wills Casa

    So fun! Having blog friends over has to be the most nerve wracking thing ever!

    • Kenz

      I was pretty nervous about it. We had tools laying all over the place. Then I realized that it’s what we have in common. And then I wasn’t afraid anymore. haha!
