This past Saturday I had a little adventure*!
Casey, from TasteStopping, organized a "Picnik Party" for local food bloggers. Not only was it a fun chance to meet a few other local bloggers, but also play around with "Picnik," which is a website that allows you to edit photos online. Picnik is like Photoshop meets a Japanese photobooth - you can adjust the exposure and color settings of an image, or add in butterflies, hearts and facial hair - or do a bit of both!
Of course, we didn't spend the whole time staring at a computer monitor. There was also time to sit around and chat - and of course, to snack! Casey, who also is the woman behind Kitchen Witch, baked up several varieties of yummy cookies for us to munch on while we chatted. They were all great, but I have to say that my favorite were her peanut butter cup cookies. I'm such a sucker for the chocolate/peanut butter combo.
Anyway, it was a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon, and it was great to meet Jennifer and Wendy. I look forward to reading both of their blogs in the future. I'm so glad Casey organized the "picnik"!
* I say adventure because I somehow managed to get myself totally lost while driving to Home Cooked to meet up with everyone. I hit traffic, my phone/GPS died when I was only a few miles and a couple of highway exits away, the car charger I ran in to Best Buy to quickly charge my phone didn't work properly... Honestly, I don't know how I manage to make so many things go wrong when I'm trying to go someplace new. Anyway, I managed to get the phone on long enough to find out the last couple of turns I needed to make, and I arrived so late that it was certainly past the point of making a stylish entrance. Oops. At least I showed up in the end, and everyone was very nice to me, even though I was so very, very late.
