• Rockin’ Out at Fitbloggin’

    September 22, 2012

    Random fun fact: Monica and I are freaks when it comes to PopChips and props. Remember last year’s pic?

    005 (480x640)

    Well, we were a tad more enthusiastic this year! Haha!

    004 (640x480)

    Hey, we like silly props and have a lot of fun together. Isn’t that all that really matters?

    006 (480x640)

    As you can see, I’m having a blast at Fitbloggin’!

    Lunch

    After a sweaty WOD and some #fitmixerfun, it was time for lunch.

    009 (640x480)

    On the menu: salad with grilled chicken and sliced pears. I also ate a banana, but I never snapped a pic of it.

    010 (640x480)

    After lunch, I attended Monica and Cynthia’s discussion session: “How Much Is Too Much?”

    011 (640x480)

    I loved this topic and it brought about a really great discussion, especially since we (as bloggers) write about so many personal aspects of our lives and it’s sometimes difficult to figure out where to draw the line of what to share and not share. Monica tends to share a lot on her blog while sharing too much makes Cynthia anxious, so it was interesting to hear their different perspectives and what they think is acceptable.

    A few hours later, Monica, Lindsay, and I met up to go to a blogger dinner at Pazo.

    014 (640x480)

    It was a little over a mile walk to Pazo and a gorgeous evening, so the three of us decided to walk. We ended up getting a little turned around, so our mile walk ended up turning into a 40-minute adventure, but we eventually arrived safe and sound. Hooray!

    036 (640x480)

    When we arrived, we enjoyed some complimentary champagne and appetizers in the lounge. It was quite fancy and a really nice way to start the evening. Thanks for the invitation, Lauren!

    Cheers to blog friends!

    025 (640x480)

    027 (640x480)

    Dinner

    A little while later, we moved into the dining room for dinner. Pazo’s menu included lots of interesting hot and cold tapas, so we ordered a bunch for the table and shared.

    031 (640x480)

    Umm… so I guess I didn’t take too many pics of dinner last night. (I was too busy chatting!) Oops. The scallops were really good! Ha!

    030 (640x480)

    032 (640x480)

    035 (640x480)

    After dinner, froyo was suggested, so we went in search of dessert. I ended up ordering a mini froyo with white chocolate chips. Mmm!

    Finishing up the last day of Fitbloggin’! I can’t believe how quickly it has flown by!

    hey tina! i love your blog and i think you’re awesome and i’m glad you’re having fun in my city but honestly as a native that was a really dissapointing recap because pazo is such a great place and deserves a better review.

    Mr. Yogato – that name is so funny! Did they have any seasonal flavors, like pumpkin pie?

    Very funny pics of you and Monica. I love the city of Baltimore- it’s not too big, and the vibe is kind of laid back. The weather must be perfect there this time of year, and I love seeing pictures of all you bloggers side by side, its kind of bizarre but cool!
