Holy fish fil-a, it’s Friday! Dig it. Surprisingly the week went by pretty fast, which happens about as often as a solar lunar eclipse (of the heart).
Make way for the weekend. But not just any ol’ weekend. The first weekend of FALL. Bring on the cider, pumpkin delights, and eating an abnormally large amount of apples. PS I had 4 yesterday. No shame. I’m just enjoying the bounty of the season…365 days of the year…
I plan to stock up on pumpkin and candy corn so I can give my orange complexion a change up. By the way the only reason to buy ‘Autumn Mix’ candy corn is for the pumpkins. Proven fact.
Before you get sick of my fall obsession, let’s get you sick of my Healthy Living Summit posts first. You saw my food, and my fitness, now what the…f-abulous could I pack more into from last weekend?! Don’t you worry my friends, there was lots more fabulous finds in the twin cities than your news feed can handle.
First off is the cocktail party that was held at the Guthrie Theatre. I couldn’t tell if it was the classiest movie-plex I’ve ever seen or the most modern play theatre. Either way this place was pretty interesting, especially with the hologrammed creepy dolls on the ceilings and walls.
Sorry that I don’t have a pic since I was afraid that either my soul would be taken by the devil, or I would end up in a cheesy horror movie. Everyone knows how the blonde dies. First. And topless. Both of which aren’t my first choices for going out. Instead here’s a pic of the lives of the party.

Love these ladies. Can’t wait til I can get my spotted cow and Cards Against Humanity fix next year. What’s spotted cow, you say?
Sorry, I thought that was hilarious. Excuse my utter maturity. (Ba-zing!) But back to all things serious. Like this bottle of Wisconsin. From what I hear you can’t get this stuff anywhere else other than WI. Beer trafficing roomies. I mean we drove to Wisconsin just to enjoy a brew, I swear…
Of course only my pictures of all things food and drink related were the only ones that came out clear, but I promise I did attend some pretty awesome sessions during the Summit. I now have an ever growing to do list for the blog, so if it appears down for maintenance, you can blame HLS.
Can I just put out a disclaimer how proud and ashamed I am at the amount of swag I left the Summit with? True Fact: I checked a bag ONLY in anticipation of bringing home a loot full of food products. Please refer to exhibit A…
Can we just note the ratio of food to clothing here. This isn’t even counting my backpack FULL of almonds from Blue Diamond. I was like the kid on Halloween when they say “Take as many as you want!” and proceed to then dump the whole bowl of candy, or in my case snack bags of every almond flavor imaginable into my pillowcase.
Blueberry. Mocha. Salt n’ Vinegar, and my personal fav Wasabi! I will never suffer from hunger pangs again.
I can’t say enough how grateful I am to have meet so many amazing people in one weekend. 3 days just simply isn’t enough time to collectively take pictures of food and tweet about it with hundreds of other bloggers. A big THANK YOU to the Healthy Living Head Honchos, dream team, and of course the sponsors for an unforgettable weekend. See you next year for HLS14!
Are you ready for Fall?
Do you think I should be on the next episode of Food Hoarders?
