First Ever St. Louis Blogger Meet Up!
Hello Hello! Today is a good day because I finally got to meet the older fabulous St. Louis ladies that blog! But first – the morning!
Despite getting almost 9 1/2 hours of sleep, I woke up with a heavy head. We had terrible thunderstorms last night that woke me up a few times so I think I didn’t get quite as much sleep as I thought. It was still raining, so I drove to the gym for a quick work out. I needed to get in a New Rules of Lifting workout and warmed up with a 5k of intervals on the treadmill:
- 1/2 mile at 6.6mph
- 1 minute @ 8.5mph, 1 min @ 6.7mph, 1 min @ 9.0mph, 1 min @ 6.7mph (twice)
- 1/2 mile cool down at 6.6mph
I was sufficiently sweaty and got through workout 1B (my favorite of the two) before heading home where a fabulous breakfast was waiting for me.
1 container Oikos 0% Plain mixed with 1t chia seeds, vanilla, and cinnamon placed inside half a cantaloupe. A scoop of almond butter on top for healthy fats (+ 1 more spoonful directly into the mouth). I am OBSESSED with cantaloupe right now. I have multiple in the fridge.
My day consisted of going back and actually purchasing all the furniture I looked at yesterday. I found some great deals on mattresses and a chest at a store here called Weekends Only and bought a sleeper sofa at JCPenny. I felt like I was handing over my credit card all afternoon, but it will be worth it to have a livable space!
Then finally it was time to meet the ladies at Red Mango! I had some veggies and hummus on the way to get some nutrients before all the sugar. At the meet up we had Rachel and Laura (who will be starting her blog as soon as we can convince her)…
We all had so much fun chatting about our blogs, favorite St. Louis restaurants, and other life happenings. I’m sad to be leaving this ladies right when I met them, but I know they’ll keep getting together and I will join once I’m home 🙂
We can say we have an official blogger scene in St. Louis now, right?
Oh and Stephanie had the COOLEST Etsy necklace on that I feel in love with! It’s from a store called Truche (that unfortunately is closed to catch up on orders right now) but I will be trying to buy this as soon as I can. I ❤ St. Louis
I just had some of my Dad’s leftover pizza for dinner, so it’s catching up on random to-dos before dinner. Hope you had a great weekend!
- What’s the blogger scene in your area like? Are you jealous of the Orlando bloggers like me!?
