MN Blog Meet in Stillwater

I had such a great time at the MN Blog Meet put on by Nellie Bellie. I have never been to Stillwater and I loved it! We met at Teddy Bear Park and had a great discussion about social media and everything that goes with it. When to use certain social media outlets, and when they just wouldn't make sense.

Thanks so much to Chrissy for teaching us all about Pinterest, and group boards, which I never knew existed. Definitely going to expand my social media presence and get the Amy's Cupcake Shoppe name out there.

Janel and Lanet did an amazing job with planning everything for the day. Caleigh had a blast in Teddy Bear Park with gramma. After the social media chat we went touring the city and our first stop was Mara Mi for some coffee and a cookie. I. Love. Mara Mi. I could've spent hours in there looking at all the beautiful things and drinking coffee.

So next time you are in Stillwater, take at least a half an hour out of your day and head to Mara Mi, get a coffee and enjoy the beautiful stationary and so much more. After Mara Mi, we walked around a little bit more of the city, and of course stopping at Cooks of Crocus Hill. Caleigh wanted all of the spatulas. We also made a stop at Tin Bins, and then had to be on our way home. 

Bringing my cupcakes and macarons for everyone to try was a big hit. Loved watching people take photos and then post them. The surprise on people's faces when they tried the macarons was so much fun. They would take a bite and then their eyes would light up. Ooooh! These are gooood! Love it. 

We had such an amazing time and I really appreciate all the connections I was able to make. 

Realizing that blogging isn't as hard as I think it is, and that there are hard working moms and ladies out there doing amazing work. Thanks again to Nellie Bellie for putting on the event and can't wait for the next one!
