Last week, I had the pleasure of getting together with the ladies of AZ Bloggers Meet Up group at Kneaders in Scottsdale! We met to network with new friends, catch with up old friends, talk about photo styling, eat some delicious Italian food, and take a behind-the-scenes tour of Kneaders.
Tausha blogs over at Taush.O. I love her blog a lot! I think if Adam and I had kids that I'd have a similar blog to Tausha, and I'd fill my site with not just food and DIY but also family adventures from all around Arizona. Check out her latest post from her family's trip to Lake Pleasant here!
This fabulous lady is Stephanie--another blogger friend of mine! She is the photographer and genius behind Life Created photography. Seriously, if you love light, airy, and feminine styled photography you need to follow her on Instagram right now! Right before we had some yummy food from Kneaders, Stephanie talked to us about food photography styling. There were lots of great tips she had to share with us, and if you live in Arizona and want to improve your photography I highly recommend one of her photography workshops (see more info about her workshops here).
Okay, okay. So here's what brought you all here--the food! And oh man the food at Kneaders Scottsdale was great! I loaded up on fruit and a delightful turkey sandwich, and then I had some dessert. I will admit, I did not try that fruit cup but everyone said it was delicious! However, I did have the cannoli. I mean, c'mon. Who can resist an Italian cannoli?! One can only have so much willpower.
Like all AZ Bloggers meet ups, I did not leave empty handed!
Seriously, the ladies who throw these events together and partner with businesses like Kneaders totally spoil us! When I came home that night, Adam's eyes went wide when he saw this loaf of blueberry bread. We both indulged on some this past weekend for breakfast, and it was so fresh and so sweet! And to top it all off, when Adam first opened it up something fell out from the bottom of the packaging--guess what it was? A gift card! Yes, on top of already hosting us in their Scottsdale location, feeding us, and giving us a tour they gave us a gift card, too!! Thank you so so much to Kneaders Scottsdale for such a wonderful event! I can't wait to go back and take Adam to try that cannoli (seriously, he had dessert envy!) And thank you to the bloggers who put this event together--Camille and Chrissy!
Do you have a Kneaders near you?
