BloggyCon and Cedar Point in Pictures

And just like that….it’s over.  I spent months getting excited for BloggyCon ‘14, a blogger conference held at the Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio.  And then it came and went by so fast, in the blink of an eye it was over and we were checking out of the hotel.

There will be plenty of time to talk about the conference and recap the weekend later.  For now, I just want to share some of my favorite moments and pictures.  I apologize to some of you who have already seen some of these on Facebook.  Enjoy!   I will catch back up with you next week. For now I am off to one more conference and enjoying some time with family. Have a great week everyone!

Stowaways and Soybeans- Friday Favorites 9/12

Happy Friday!  For me, it is time for BloggyCon 14 at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.  My most favorite moments this week are all from yesterday…..

I woke up really really early yesterday to catch my flight.  I was packing and discovered I had a stowaway.

A Sully in a Suitcase

Well, it is the start of Halloweekends at Cedar Point and Sullingham J. Moose is a black cat…….but he can’t come with me this time.  Poor guy.

I barely made my flight.  I am so glad I did for a number of reasons, the main one being this.

Notre Dame Stadium

I flew into South Bend, Indiana and as we were just breaking the clouds I glanced out to window in time to see the campus of Notre Dame.  While I have visited the campus before it was pretty spectacular to view everything by air.  My pictures don’t do it justice.

Soy Bean farm

Soy Bean field in Indiana

I am not leaving for Cedar Point until this morning so I had a night to visit with the in-laws.  Their house backs right up to a farm and in most years I have been up here they have fields filled with corn.  This year they have soy beans.

Fresh edamame anyone

Fresh edamame anyone?  I’ve never seen a soy bean in its raw unprocessed form before so that was pretty cool thing.  (They’re fuzzy right off the plant!)

Volkswagen SUV

And lastly- my cool car for the week!  I’ve decided I want my next car to be a SUV and this week I get to test out one from Volkswagen.  It’s no Swagger Wagon, but I really like driving it.  This morning I will be making the 3 1/2 hour drive to Sandusky, OH and Cedar Point in style!

Hope everyone has a Happy Friday!
