Tuesday Talent Show #72

Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Talent Show!

It was SO MUCH fun to meet some of you at Build Your Blog conference on Saturday. I wish I had the opportunity to meet everyone that was there.

Here are just a few pics of some of the fun people I had the opportunity to meet for the first time or hang out with again :) If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably already seen these, if not then we should be Instagram friends :)  @nikki_chefintraining


Elyse, one of the sisters from Six Sisters’ Stuff and me. She has been one of my good friends since basically 2nd grade! The Sisters’ did an incredible job with the entire conference!



Alyssa from The Recipe Critic. I just love this girl. She was my wingman during the entire conference. I have met Alyssa before and just adore her.




Me, Ashton from Something Swanky and Jocelyn from Inside Brucrew Life. SO fun meeting these girls in person FINALLY! We have all chatted and become friends through the crazy blogging world but meeting them in person was awesome!




I was on a food panel at the conference with these two fun girls, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and Amanda from Kevin and Amanda. There were two others on the panel with us that I sadly didn’t get a picture with, Laura from Real Mom Kitchen, Erica from Favorite Family Recipes




Carrian from Sweet Basil. This girl is one of the cutest girls ever! I adore her :)



I met SO many other amazing and talented bloggers! If I met you and didn’t post a picture of us, its because I didn’t get one (don’t know why I wasn’t snapping pictures like crazy?! lol!), so email them to me (chefintraining.recipes@gmail.com) if you want and I will throw them up here and link to you :)
