Stillwater MN Blog Meet-up

On Saturday, Jen and I drove to Stillwater to attend a MN Blog Meet-up hosted by NellieBellie, The Taylor House, and the Stillwater Visitor’s Bureau.

The morning started off with coffee and breakfast courtesy of Bruegger’s Bagels and Great Harvest Bread Co.

Breakfast was followed by a short Social Media 101 seminar – complete with mid-morning macaroons from Amy’s Cupcake Shoppe.

After the seminar we were free to roam around Stillwater, check out the shops, and have lunch –  so that’s exactly what we did.

Jen and I took a stroll by the flooded St. Croix River, grabbed food at The Freight House, and ducked into the various antique stores, boutiques, and bookstores on Main Street.

Later that afternoon, we gathered with the blogger group once again to chat, enjoy cupcakes + ice cream floats, and draw for prizes that were graciously donated by places like Mara MiUrban VioletDuluth Trading Company, MN Science Museum, and the Guthrie Theater.

I ended up winning tickets to the Science Museum and am so excited to go – I’ve wanted to since we moved to MN!

And, thanks to all the wonderful sponsors of this event, every blogger left with a swag bag full of goodies from the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, Izzy’s Ice Cream, Minnesota Zoo, Minnesota Beef Council, and more.stitch2

It was a very fun event and thanks again to NellieBellieThe Taylor House, and the Stillwater Visitor’s Bureau for the invite. I’m glad Jen & I were able to make the trip to enjoy Stillwater and meet many new faces. Can’t wait for the next one!
