Hello from San Francisco!  I’m at my first ever food blogging conference with Foodbuzz and having oh-so-much fun!

Fbzfest11_Hotel_ViewJessica and I met up in Oakland and headed to our hotel with our spectacular view.  (That is, if you think that a tempting view of shopping is spectacular.)

Foodbuzz Friends

I’ve met so many blogging friends…

Nikki-Joelen…and got to see Joelen again!

Blogger CamerasThis is what happens when you have food bloggers touring the city together.  If you need a group photo, you ask an unlucky passer-by to take it for you and unload all of your cameras.  Line ’em up!

Martha StewartOh, and did I mention Martha Stewart just randomly walked by when we were having lunch at the Ferry Building?  She was rocking leather pants (she’s in the grey jacket, along with her entourage).

Paula Dean-GingerPaula Dean?  Nope, it’s Ginger, our friend, Jessica’s, mom.

Fbzfest11_Jess_SimpsonAnd, I hung out with Jessica Simpson.  For realz!  Okay, maybe not the Jessica Simpson you’re thinking, but that really is her name!

Fbzfest11_Joy_BakerThe best celebrity (although she’s in denial about her awesomeness) – Joy the Baker.  LOVE her.  Oh yeah, and she has a book deal.  More awesomeness.

It’s late.  I’m full.  I’m tired.  I’m heading to bed.  I’ll give you more Foodbuzz Festival scoop when I get home.  🙂
