And for the good news…

I'm Going to BlogHer '11Well, I just shared the bad news over on Babble, so I’m going to give you some good news over here.

Three weeks from tomorrow, I’ll be boarding a plane for San Diego to attend BlogHer ’11 and I’m growing more excited by the day.

For those of you who are also attending, consider yourself forewarned that I plan to drink all of my wine and yours too.

For those of you who won’t be there, please don’t believe any of the stories you hear about my behavior while I’m there. ;)

I’m going to squeeze every bit of fun out of my time with my friends in San Diego…five days of fun, learning, and wine.

Did I mention wine?

And then I’ll come back home, regroup, and work on getting pregnant. Again.

Natalie, Sherri, Cheryl, Lori, Tonya, and Katie, my lovely BlogHer roommates? Are you ready!?

I can’t wait to see you all!


  1. Tonya

    Yay yay yay!!! Can't wait to cheers you over and over and over again, roomie. xoxo

  2. MamaWantsThis

    I'm so sorry about the bad news, but I'm thrilled for your good news and how you're taking everything in stride!!!

    Can't wait to hear all the stories when you guys return from BlogHer!

  3. Cam

    So so sorry about not being pregnant..yet! Going to BlogHer is very good news. I'm so excited. I can't wait to meet all of you awesome twitter friends in real life!

  4. Lori

    Ready ready ready ready ready ready! (In response to the good news.)

    And much much love to you. (In response to the bad news.)

    Plus, I'm lying. I'm not ready at all. Although I did order cards. I think. i haven't finished my coffee yet. It's possible I ordered a llama.

  5. Sherri

    I am with Lori….I'll say I'm ready, but I am so NOT.

    But ready to hang with you guys? Always!

    And I much prefer this good news over the bad….so hugs to you my friend.

  6. Cheryl @ Mommypants

    I carry a Flip, so there might be video evidence.




  7. I wish I could hug you and drink wine with you, but I am looking forward to Cheryl's video evidence ;)

  8. Courtney K.

    I hope you have a BLAST a Blogher! You deserve the break!

  9. SquashedMom

    OK, I'm swimming in the same pond as Lori and Sherri, emotionally ready but practically with my big old ostrich head in the sand. Can't wait! (Will the packing and child scheduling fairies please come on over to my house and do their jobs already?!)

  10. Krista

    You make me wish I was going to Blogher!

    Sorry that this month didn't end with a pregnancy. Still sending you positive thoughts and prayers.

  11. Mrs. Jen B

    I can’t wait to see you dancing on a table, with a bottle in your hand… I mean, diligently taking notes in one of the sessions.
    You are welcome to my wine… I’ll be seven months and swollen.
    My hopes are that someday soon you will be swollen too.

  20. Kimberly

    So sorry it didn't happen for you this month. {{hugs}}

    But, I am SO happy for you about BlogHer! Extremely jealous, but so happy for you!

  21. Ryan @TWM

    So jealous! I know you'll have a ball.

  22. tracy

    I am so excited to meet you. However, you cannot have my wine. ahem.

  23. Mama Mary

    Sorry to hear your bad news, but I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and the timing will work out as they should (though that doesn't always help when things aren't going my way!). But I am beyond excited to meet you IRL at BlogHer and share a glass of wine or twenty with you!

  24. Megan -Best of Fates

    Sounds like a fabulous time – I'm so jealous of all of you!

  25. jeleystorey

    You ladies (or girls depending on the mood!) Will have a fantastic time! And you know what? This time of fun and exciting things may be just what your body needs! Having fun will be a nice additional rest to getting your body ready for trying again for that baby! And hanging out with moms who are pregnant may (scientific advice not proven) could help that hormonal boost! So rub some bellies! ; ) have a wonderful time, steal those wines and we look forward to your friend video taping you surreptitiously! Ha!

  26. Rachel

    Did somebody say wine?

    So sorry about your bad news….

  27. BalancingMama

    Hang in there re: bad news. It will happen.

    Soooo wishing I could do BlogHer. I want to meet you fabulous ladies!
