Hiking South Mountain

I kicked off my weekend bright and early Saturday with a hike on South Mountain. I haven’t hiked since before the baby was born, it was great to get out and get some fresh air and start my day off with some exercise. I think I’ll try it more often! This is the view from the top, it’s hard to tell but the city of Phoenix is down below to the left between those two hills that look deceivingly small.

Did I mention it was 70 degrees on my drive home from work at around 7:00? Don’t be jealous east coasters.

Saturday evening I headed off to Blended Food Bloggers Conference where I met some amazing cooks/bloggers:

Everyday Southwest
Eat Drink Love
Fit Fun Delish
I Wash… You Dry
The Baked Equation
The Slow Roasted Italian
Pink Cake Plate
East Valley Mom Guide
and Around My Family Table… just to name a few.

Holy swag! This event was well worth my $30. I could barely haul this load of freebies down the street to my car…

Gourmet Garden

Sun Dried Tomatoes


Urban Table

Fry's Food Stores

Fairytale Brownies

Pop Chips

The sponsors of this event were so amazing. Thanks so much to Fry’s Food Stores, Shamrock Farms, Bella Sun Luci, Roland, Fairytale Brownies, Pop Chips and Gourmet Garden for all of your donations and especially Shawn at I Wash You Dry and Wendy at Around My Family Table for organizing the event.

It’s not often that I leave the house and gallivant around town until 10 P.M. so Sunday was a wash for me. I. Did. NOTHING. and it was great.

Only 3 days til the weekend again. Looking forward to it!
