A "Real" Date and Foodbuzz Festival Day One

Yesterday, hubby and I got to go on a date without the toddler for the first time in a long time (other than short dinner dates). Thank you Uncle Roy for babysitting! Aren’t you glad you moved back to the Bay Area? Winking smile Not only did we ask my brother-in-law to babysit, we also asked him to take a pre-date picture of us; I know, we are funny…

We left in the early afternoon and drove to San Francisco. Like real tourists, we took a picture on the top of the parking garage…

Then we picked up our passes and gift bags at the Foodbuzz Festival Registration.

After that, we just played “tourists” for a few hours. It was fun (but, honestly, I was also a bit worried about the toddler, who didn’t miss us at all it turns out. In fact, when he woke up this morning he said, “Is Uncle Roy here?”).

I got to meet only a few bloggers, but I hope to meet more today (and take pictures!). Here are a few pictures from yesterday:

I finally got to meet Lynn Chen. Hubby and I are huge fans and loved going to the screening of White on Rice and meeting her co-star and the director of the film last year. Lynn is so sweet and beautiful.

I also met Snack Girl, and we had fun chatting a bit at the very beginning of the festival.

I also briefly chatted with Holly, The Healthy Everythingterian. I have been following Holly’s blog for a long time, and it was so nice to briefly meet her in person.

And here is some of the food:

I look forward to more fun today and hope to meet more bloggers.

Question: What are you up to this weekend? 

Be Well,


  1. Oh it looks like such a great time! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. What a great time you had. I love your outfit by the way, looks very good on you.

    No big plans this weekend, more for next week when we go away for a few days.

  3. aw, i was so happy to meet you too!!!

  4. How fun!! I wish I could go to this event sometime. Who knows, maybe I will one day :) I have some friends in California so there are more than enough excuses to go!
    Glad you got to get out of the house for a while. I am stuff doing chores this weekend but I plan on going for a long walk with my mom tomorrow sometime.

  5. You look great, Andrea! Glad to hear you had a few hours of "adult" time. Everything at Foodbuzz looks amazing from what I've been seeing on blogs. What a great way to meet some people!

    I have a lowkey weekend which is just fine by me! :)

  6. OH MY of these days I am going to have to save my money and get to a blog event!

    what a great time and how so fun you can meet other bloggers in real life.

    I bet they were just as excited to meet YOU!

    ps I get sick worrying about our toddler feeling "abandonded" and of course he's over us leaving in 5 minutes! haha

  7. Haha... your toddler miss his uncle already! You expected him to look for you when he woke up huh! Well, I can see you guys were having such a fantastic time there. It's all worth it!

  8. Andrea, you are so awesome! I was happy to meet you and wish I'd seen more of you. Holly and I were trying to find you again but we failed :(

  9. Yay Foodbuzz! I'm glad I found you (and finally met Andy)! It's great that you could both make it to the event.
