Back from the B-List!

I’m back from a fun-filled weekend in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia and DC where I had the pleasure of hanging with some of the world’s best bridal bloggers at the B-List Conference.  A big thanks to Anne, Vane and Maria for all their hard work coordinating everything.

It will take me a few posts to tell you all about it but I’ll start with the Friday night Meet & Greet cocktail reception at The Torpedo Factory. The space looked and sounded great (flowers by Holly Chappelle Flowers, furniture by DC Rentals and the wedding and event entertainment and bands by Elan Artists).

The fun and delicious menu was created by Design Cuisine.  There was a “Pop-Up Bar” featuring everything popped like popcorn (in every variety), pop rocks, pop tarts, etc.  Another fave was the DIY-Prosecco bar where guests could add their favorite flavorings (pear, cranberry, orange and pomegranate!).

The passed hors d’oeurves were amazing and I loved that they named each appetizer after a different B-List blogger.  I’m pleased to report that the Globetrotting Bride’s All-Over Influenced Duck Confit Taco with Asian Pear Salsa was sooo delicious!  Don’t you just want to reach into your computer screen and grab one?  I bet you do!

Stay tuned for more…

Happy Friday!

Just a quick post to thank all of you for your great feedback on the new Globetrotting Bride makeover and my ever growing belly.  I’m officially 29 weeks and Globetrotting Baby Girl is 3 pounds as of today!

As you have probably noticed, I’m having some glitches learning to work with WordPress but hopefully that will all be solved soon.  I don’t know why some of the photos aren’t posting because they are showing up ok when I preview….Hmmmm.  If you know why, let me know!

Hot off the press! A new and improved look…

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to the new and improved Globetrotting Bride!

After watching so many of my fellow bloggers undergo face lifts, I decided I wanted one too.  A special shout out to Marina at Penny Lane Designs for all her hard work on the new design.

I hope you Globetrotting Bride fans like it.  I’ve moved from Blogger to WordPress and I’ll be adding new features as I figure them out so stay tuned.  And please let me know if you have any feedback.
