I went to my second official Austin Food Bloggers Alliance event tonight! The crew from Cooking Planit invited our group to Moonshines to discuss their app and get some feedback from people who frequent the kitchen. I had no idea what to expect, really. I browsed their site beforehand like I was cramming for a test and, in true Kristin fashion, got distracted during the whole email verification process. It would have been a huge ‘oops’, but the intro, panel discussion, and demo brought me up to speed. And when the panel speakers walked up to the front of the room, I was super excited to see that Hilah from Hilah Cooking was there! It’s getting more nice/less awkward meeting other bloggers. I have the Alliance and Healthy Living Summit to thank for that one.
When I got home, there was a package waiting for me. A package containing Eppa Sangria and Driscoll’s Berries coupons, both extremely appropriate for the upcoming holiday weekend. I will surely get my berry bake on and sip on sangria before the Gator game on Saturday! Is anyone else as excited as I am to get dolled up in their alma mater colors and try to remember how football goes??
In other news, my new camera also arrived this week. Even though I’m sure upgrading from an XSI to a 7D won’t be as dramatic as when I made the switch from a point and shoot a few years back, I am so excited to get nerdy with this thing. I made lots of promises to my blog on its 2nd birthday and this camera is a total reflection of my dedication to continuously making FoodFash better. And if I was a betting man, I’d say this camera means bigger, badder, better videos. Or maybe just better videos. Such a sucker for alliteration!
And in other other news, I booked my first flight back to Florida today (well, to LAX then TPA)! By the time I fly home, it will have been nearly 8 months since I’ve been home, which more than doubles my current record time away. I plan on crunching in as much family, friends, and football as humanly possible while I’m there.
So much good stuff going on this week and I couldn’t help but share!
