This weekend still felt like summer to me! So, despite the appearance of pumpkins later on in my post, I’m hanging on to the end of summer…
On Friday morning, while the kids were in school, I went with my friends Mariah and Ashlie to Brewnuts for their Harry Potter-themed donuts that were available this weekend only.
Brewnuts not only makes gigantic, creative donuts, but they come up with lots of fun theme days to sprinkle even more magic on the donuts. I opted for a Sorting Hat donut, whose yellow buttercream filling told me I was a Hufflepuff.
Add in a Butterbeer latte…
and the cute, tiki-themed decor…
and you have the makings of three very happy moms!
We heard speakers on everything from SEO to brand ambassadorships and had a chance to connect with other bloggers from around the country.
This was my first blog conference, despite how long I’ve been doing this, and I really feel like I came away with some valuable insights into things I can implement with the blog, as well as things that I don’t want to change.
Small City Taphouse
Since we were spending the night in Sandusky, I had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants out that way: Small City Taphouse.
This restaurant boasts 80 beers on tap, which obviously means you have to get a flight because it is impossible to choose just one.
My two favorites from my flight were the Big Bad Baptist from Epic Brewing and the Haunted Hayride Pumpkin Ale from Masthead Brewing.
Small City Taphouse also has a full sushi and Asian cuisine menu. The TNT roll, with tuna and jalapeno was a great choice, as was the spicy egg noodles with beef.
If you find yourself in Sandusky, definitely check out Small City Taphouse!
Cedar Point Halloweekends
From trick or treating through Kiddie Kingdom…

…there was so much to do on top of the rides that Jeffrey always loves. It was a fall festival in summer-like weather!

So, that was my weekend! How was yours?
