VVC 2013 - Day One


Time for VVC. We woke up, had a little oatmeal then headed to the Portland Art Museum to pick up our Swag Bag. Thank goodness we left a little time to take it back to the hotel. Those bags were heavy. After dropping off the bags we decided to go back to Backspace for lunch. This time we had a wrap.

Once we had lunch we head back to the museum to start our official day one of VVC2013. First we took a look around at all the great exhibitors. 


Then headed to our classes....

Here is our first day of classes..

12:45 – 1:30 Food Styling: Keeping It Real - Hannah Kaminsky
This class was one of our favorites. We definitely learned a few tricks.

1:45 – 2:30 - Attention Spans, Social Media & the State of Blogging - Jess Sconé
2:45 – 3:45 - Art of Writing Recipes - Nava Atlas, Dreena Burton, Terry Hope Romero

4:00 – 4:45 MoFo Workshop - Kittee Berns, Mo Martin, Amey Mathews

I really wish this classroom had been bigger. By the time we got there it was standing room only. We lasted about 30 minutes then left to go sit and wait for the Veggie Grill Reception in the ballroom. It was hard for me to enjoy it anyway because I kept worrying if Momma Veg was ok standing so long and if her knee was giving her problems. To be honest I was a little surprised that no one offered her a seat. This was my first lesson that you have to get to your next class as early as possible. 

Here is the ballroom that we had all of our meals, etc in. 

This was a nice Vegan Cuts snack bag that was given to us.
