A Picture Is Worth... #MedtronicDAF Edition

This past weekend, I had the tremendous honor of attending the second annual Medtronic Diabetes Advocates Forum.  I still can't believe that I even got invited, let alone that I was actually able to go.  My exhausted brain is still all a swirl, and part of me still can't believe that this actually happened.

I will post about the actual forum, I promise.  But I'm still behind on sleep and trying to process everything.  So for now, I have some pics.  For more pics, check out these posts from Sara, Kim, and Cherise, who are much more organized than me.

Everyone!  Photo courtesy of Medtronic.

Watching DSMA Live being broadcast, live and in person!

When looking for coffee at 12:30 in the morning in LA,  cops are good people to ask. 
Unfortunately the coffee shops were all closed, but they recommended 
something even better!  Diddy Riese

A very chilly Santa Monica Pier.

Mike and the girls!

We waited in line a long time. But SO WORTH IT!
Red Velvet and Peanut Butter Chocolate from Sprinkles!

Kim and I *might* have had cupcakes and coffee for breakfast on Sunday...

This is my favorite shot of the whole trip- and I didn't even take it!
Thanks Bennet for taking this and sharing!

Disclosure: Medtronic paid for my flights, hotel, and transportation to attend the forum.  I chose to stay an extra day, and paid for all associated expenses myself.  I was not compensated for my participation in the forum, nor was I required to blog about the experience.  All thoughts are my own.  


  1. I had such a wonderful time with our little gang at the Getty. Thanks. Happy you like the shot, It is easy when everyone is having a great time. .

  2. Hey wait. Didn't the cops also recommend that hookah bar?

    1. Bennet! I was going to leave that part out! :P
