See you next week!


I’m leaving for BlogHer in NYC on Thursday and won’t be back until Sunday – so I won’t be posting or commenting on blogs for the rest of the week.

What’s that? It’s only Monday? Well – true…but seriously, I need to clean my house. Also? I got a major dose of guilt from Eleanor yesterday. She  heard me talking about going away and burst into tears. We told her about all the fun she would have with Daddy (the beach! the water park! candy at all hours of the day!) and that seemed to cheer her up. But later she said, “Mommy, I’d rather have you than all the fun.” Probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me…but, OH my heart…

I’m still going. But I’m going to try to spend a little extra time with my girl.

If you’d like to see what I’m going to be wearing and hear my thoughts on packing for conferences, visit my Wishing True page (this is not to be missed by people who have absolutely nothing better to do!).

Otherwise, I’ll be back on Monday.

For those of you who will also be in NYC, please let me know. I’d love to see you.

In fact, you can count on me being in one place for a full two hours Friday morning. I’ll be working in the Serenity Suite from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This would be a fantastic time to actually talk since it’s a little oasis in the midst of conference madness. To hear more about this suite where you can escape when you’re overwhelmed and need a break or if you’re feeling lost and need a a friendly face – full details are HERE.

I could include my itinerary for all three days (and you know I have one) but who knows how much of it will stick. I have a plan, but in the end, I’ll probably just see where the day takes me.

In general, you can expect to see me with the two lovely ladies on the right:

Can’t wait to drive up with Anna and Jill on Thursday!

And for those of you not coming (like the friends/roommates who had to pass this year – I’m looking at you Christy, Heidi and Chrisy!) – you will of course be missed.

Let’s catch up in August – okay?

    I will definitely try to see you in the Serenity Suite, one of my favorite places from my first BlogHer. In fact, that was where I first met you — introduced by wonderful Anna. Before that, I only knew your name (you see, your megafame preceded you). Hope you have some good quality daughter time before you arrive.

    Okay, I admit it, I’m a little teary eyed looking back at these pictures and remembering how much fun we all had two years ago. And last year. A little sick to my stomach that I’m passing up on all that this year to participate in a triathlon and hang with my family. UGH. SIGH. But…in the end, I still feel like this is the right decision for me. Just wish I could be in two places at once.

    I know you girls will have SO MUCH FUN!!! Miss you and love you all!!! xoxo

    I’m sooo envious!! And, at the same time, so happy for you. It’s going to be fun. Give Anna a big squeeze for me, please.
    One day…one day…I’ll actually get to meet you.
