HBSymposium Holiday Party

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Houston Blogger Symposium holiday party! Back in September, Megan hosted her first blogger symposium at Hotel ZaZa and it was a total hit. This time, she teamed up with some pretty awesome sponsors and put on a night to be remembered.

As always, I totally stressed out on what to wear. I mean, you're getting some of Houston's most fashionable people in a room together. You don't want to look silly! I gotta admit: Target really helped me on this one. I got a flowy top, ponte leggings, and a pair of cute earrings to wear. I also made the mistake of buying heels on Friday night and the entire night my feet were KILLING me. (Yes, bloggers who saw me hobbling around like an old lady. That was me.)

I met so many bloggers that I had been dying to meet, including a new love of mine. Allyson of Mimosas in the Morning was working the door and we had a heart to heart where we confessed our ages and I couldn't believe that she was younger than me! CUH-RAY-ZEE. The cocktails that she created for the party were unbelievable. So unbelievable that you couldn't taste the vodka. Let's just say that at one point Selena, Lindsay, and I were all belting out Mariah's "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Yep, it was a good night.

I got a fancy braid at the braid bar! Me and Megan

Yay for Delta Zeta bloggers!

Sounds like a great time! Makes me wish I was a blogger :) holiday outfits are so stressful but Target totally came through for you - great choice!

Oh my goodness, girly, your hair looks amazing!!! How in the world do you get the curls to look that pretty? Mine always smush together when I use an iron.

And I SO wish there were things like this where I live. I don't think blogging is very popular in my area. Haha.
