Bumble Bee Foods Bee Squad Party

For the second year, I am a member of the Bumble Bee Foods Bee Squad.   Bumble Bee Foods sent their Bee Squad bloggers to Blogher again this year.  The conference was in San Diego, CA and never before had I been to California or anywhere even near it.  Bumble Bee was excited that the conference was in their neck of the woods and they took us to some of their favorite places.

After we arrived in San Diego on Thursday Bumble Bee hosted a private party at Mr. A’s Restaurant.  The party was outside on the patio overlooking the city.  The view was absolutely beautiful.  We were fortunate to begin the party while it was still daylight and stay until dark.

Hardly any of us sat down during the party. The view was just too gorgeous to ignore. We all stood around and continued to look out. We saw several planes land while we were there which was a bit scary. It looked like the planes were going to crash into a building or land in the water.

One of the highlights of Blogher is seeing blogging friends. I met Elizabeth from Table 4 Five back in 2008 at the first Pampers Mommy Blogger event. We sat up on the very tall bench at Pampers and I sang “I’m a big kid look what I can do . . .”. She declared me cute and we have been friends since.  🙂

Chef Scott Leibfried continues to be the chef for Bumble Bee Foods. Last year during the Blogher party Chef Scott made some quick and yummy foods using Bumble Bee products. This year he hung out with us and talked. He is very nice and easy to talk to. Chef Scott is known for his appearances on Hell’s Kitchen, the Food Network Challenge, and Kitchen Nightmares.

I was also thrilled to meet up with Lori again from The Bargain Shopper Lady.  We got to spend lots of time together this year and she is definitely a kindred spirit.  You can see a picture of the two of us and the entire Bee Squad at her site.

As you can see, the city is beautiful during the day and night. It is also very obvious that I am in need of a new camera.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I’ll try to post more from Blogher later this week.
