Thanks to my friend over at mumfection.com, I was lucky enough to attend a wonderful women’s blogging conference called “Shes Connected.” I must say, at first I was wary about attending since I’m relatively new to the blogging world and still trying to get this blog to be what I envisioned it to be but I am sooo happy I got to go. I learned so much and met so many wonderful and inspiring people. Plus, I got to show my friend around Toronto and gosh, did we have fun or what?
Obviously this all happened last week but life gets in the way of blogging sometimes and I am sorry but my body still needs to recuperate from everything and it didn’t help that I had to work all week this week. So, here I am, writing this post now, better late than never right?
It all started Thursday afternoon when I went to pick up my friend at the airport. Her flight was delayed but I figured it would be when I saw multiple flights coming from the west coast being delayed before her flight. I must say, I was getting a bit antsy while waiting for her though, super excited and anxious. Although, while I was waiting patiently in front of the arrival gates, I saw people sneaking in. I’m pretty sure those doors say authorized personnel only but people inside waiting for their bags, came up to the gate (since it’s automatic) and let their friends in. It made me want to sneak in because one of the times when the doors opened I caught a glimpse of my friend waiting patiently for her luggage but I decided to be a good girl and stay on the right side of the gates.
Eventually my friend came out and I was so happy to see her =) Immediately, got a cab and to where she was staying. She took some pictures of the place she was staying over at her blog. We dropped off her things and took off for a night on the town. Our original plans sort of had to be changed around a bit but we knew that that was a possibility, so we did as much as we could.
I took her on a stroll through downtown Toronto and to Dundas Square and Eaton Centre. Later in the evening a friend of mine joined us and we all walked to Sneaky Dee’s but not without passing a beautiful shot of the old parliament building (I think that’s what it is) while the sun was setting. And this is where I will leave this post for today.
PS: Sneaky Dee’s Greek style nachos were awesome.
