BlogHer Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me apologize in advance for using the words "nice" and "mommy blogger" in this post over and over again. But I have to say that mommy bloggers are just really, really, really nice people. And cute and funny and intelligent. I'm so glad I went even though I didn't get there until Saturday night and I felt like a bit of a lame-o arriving so late. I actually had to chase down Elizabeth from Table for Five to say hi to her because she was already leaving as I was just getting my first drink.

Also, due to the fact that I arrived so late, I missed out on all the free stuff. I was so bummed cuz I love free shite. Though I have to say that Mega Mom did share some of her goodies with me. Check this out. Free Elexa condoms with their own faux leather carrying case. Sweeeeeet!

But enough of that...on to the pictures!


Double fistin' it with Christina and Sarah. Woo-hoo. These girls know how to part-ay!

What can I say about this girl? She is like the cutest pregnant woman I have EVER seen. Really outgoing, warm, and friendly. And she's the only woman I've ever spent the night with who's handed me a condom. So, that seals it. I am forever in love with her.

Dude, it doesn't get any better than this. Me and Jennster, completely sober, humping each other. She rocks, man. You will see her picture ALL of the Internet I'm sure. She is so fun and so nice and I'm indebted to her for letting me tag along after her at the party.

I'm not going to tell you who this is, but I will say that she is really sweet, super nice, and loves her office supplies.

Forget Dooce. I touched Dawn from True Wife Confessions. I shall not wash my right cheek.

This is what I meant when I said I wanted sweeping bangs, Hairdresser! She is one sophisticated mama. And so down-to-earth. Just like her blog. Oh, and she's the only person I truly believe can bring the fanny pack back into style.

I'm a bit sad because I didn't get to really chat it up with Catherine. Though I did find out that those adorable pictures of Wonderbaby and Kermit were taken by HER. If I lived closer, I would totally pay her to take pictures of Kermit and Little Guy.

And then there was Motherhood Uncensored, Mothergoosemouse, POW, and Mom/Ma'am/Me who were so fun to meet in person as I am big fans of their blogs.

When I met Liz , I think I blathered something about how much I loved her blog and how it was one of the first I ever read and how she was such a great writer and how funny I think she is. I basically made myself sound like a frickin' stalker. But she was so nice that she didn't let on that I totally freaked her out. I'm going to have to comment on her blog with a new profile now. But she really is sweet. Super, super sweet.

Oh, and Wendy Boucher autographed her book for me. Wendy is lovely. So outgoing and friendly. And a published writer. *swoon*

So, that's the recap. There are so many peeps out there in blogland that weren't at the conference. I missed seeing you guys there. Really, really missed you. It will be that much more fun if you can make it to next year's BlogHer in Illinois. Whaddyasay? Is it a date...?

I am seething with envy at all the great pictures on everyone's blogs!! It just isn't fair!!! Maybe I'm bitter because I spent the weekend camping and wrangling kids while my hubby golfed and napped (grrr....)! Glad you had a blast!

Of course the pregnant woman gave you the condom, it was too late for her!

I love the piggy back riding photo. My husband said that's the part of BlogHer he wants to hear more about. (Like sleepovers and summer camp, he thinks it's all one big chickfest in babydoll pj's and doing each others... hair.)

Blogger Mom101 said...

What are you talking about, woman? There was no blathering and no stalking. I found you charming and delightful and sweet and next time, don't show up five minutes before I'm about to pass out (I'm old, remember? I don't have the stamina of the kids these days.) and go to sleep.

Next time, we'll turn those virtual margaritas into real ones.

Yay for you!!! It's so nice of you to post pictures for those of us who could only attend BlogHer '06 in spirit. And this way we know exactly who to scope out at the '07 festivities when we convince our asses to join our spirits!... that made sense in my mind, I swear.

For the LOVE! I so wish you'd said hi. I see your pictures and I know I saw you everywhere. Next year we'll have to meet up. It was seriously a great time.
