Arizona Blogger Meetup: Part 1

This past Saturday was the Arizona Blogger Meet-up. Kelsey, Danielle, and I spent three months planning the meet-up, and we were all so excited and nervous when the day finally rolled around. I'm going to be breaking the meet-up photos and stories into multiple posts, so here is a few shots and stories from the beginning part of the day activity that we held in downtown Phoenix.

We met at the Civic Space Park at noon. Everyone seem to come together really well, and it was pretty easy to point out who the bloggers were as they were walking up to the group. I saw a few many familiar faces, and many new faces as well.

Here is the group right before we left the park. After this shot we all walked together to the farmer's market in front of the Phoenix Public Market. Oh, and many more bloggers showed up after this photo as well.

Once we got to the farmer's market there was a coffee run at Royal at the Market.

Lots of fun photos with ladies I was so happy to be with. Here I am with Paige, Vanessa, and Kelsey.

Time spent with my blogger turned real life friend Courtney (love this lady so much).

Chatting with some ladies that I was so excited to meet. Myself, Jessica, Vanessa, Paige, Kara, and Danielle.

Scott and I's friend Ashley met up with us at the farmer's market after putting the finishing touches on the craft area that we would be visiting at the Grow-Op later in the day. Ashley was such a huge help, and I am so happy that she was there with us.

After everyone got done perusing around the market, we all headed down to Mercantile boutique and salon.

All the bloggers seem to have a nice time looking through all the pretty vintage items in the shop. Mercantile is one of my favorite boutiques in the area, and I was so excited to introduce it to everyone.

A saw a few ladies making some purchases, and Scott grabbed a shot with Vanessa and her new pretty belt.

After we were all done shopping and looking around in Mercantile, we all headed a few doors down to Vintage by Misty. This shop just opened earlier in the week, so it was nice to check out all the pretty designer/fancy vintage items they had stocked the shop with.

This is all for part one, check back for part two very soon. Also, if anyone from the meet-up has blogged about the day, please leave a link in the comments so I can check out the posts!
