Wordful Wednesday: More BlogHer…

I’ve been home from BlogHer  ’11 for over a week, and I still haven’t been able wrap my brain around the whole event in order to properly write a post about it that just *might* do it justice.  So, instead of trying to be methodical or informative, I should probably just tell you that for me, BlogHer was about connections.  Connections with friends I already knew, and those I met for the first time, connections with PR Reps and brands, and connections that hooked me up at the best parties, and let’s not forget about the connections with the food which I didn’t have to cook or clean up for 3 days.

Everyday brought fun interactions like this one with MamaKat and Vanessa from the BlogFrog.

Or this one with one of my “roomies”. Francesca, where are all of the photos of you and I?

Or this one with my old friend Carissa of Good N Crazy.

And, hello, amazing photographer friend, Amanda!

Now, let’s take a moment to discuss the parties. Oh the parties…(The was taken at the Fashion File Party at The HardRock Hotel.)

The Hostess with the Mostess “Wonderlandia” Party had the best centerpieces I . Have. Ever. Seen.

Amy and Angie from I Heart Faces, Francesca of SITS and I joined our own special club….

Rumor has it the the Stingaree, home to the Cheap Sally Party is one of *the* places to be in San Diego. Aren’t Summer of Le Musings of Moi and Jill (Scary Mommy) SO adorable in this shot?

I had never been to a party at a museum before….Youphoria picked a great location for their soiree!

Remember I talked about my connection with food?  Those folks at P&G know how to take care of their “people” and dinner at Bertrands at Mr A’s was scrumdidliumptious!

Lunch with friends?  Priceless.  Thanks for setting that up, Nicole!

 

Besides the parties and the connections, one of the most unexpected things to happen to me at BlogHer was getting “hit by the #ATTPhoneFairy”.  When I say that I was hit by the “Phone Fairy”, what I really mean is that I got a month of free service on a brand spankin’ new HP Veer 4G!  It is the cutest little phone ever SMALL), but packs quite a punch;  it is after all, a Smart phone…

Oh, the BlogHer sessions?  Just icing on the cake, especially Jill’s Design session.  Can we say fabulous?

And let’s not forget the expo.  I’ve always wanted to go in one of these machines….even if this only spit out Chuck E Cheese tickets…

Most of these photos were taken by my friends and I “took” them from their Flickr or Facebook stream.  Thanks for sharing, ladies!

I also posted about BlogHer here and here if you are interested.

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

Don’t forget to hop on over to my co-host Amanda’s place (Parenting By Dummies) to see what she has to be Wordful about today!

    So funny that we wrote very similar posts with very similar sentiments on the matter! And, I feel like a photo hog for jumping in so many of your shots! But, I love that I got a ton of pics of you! Who knows when we’ll actually be at the same place again:(

    . Your favourite juofaticitisn seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while other folks consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing with no need side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you!
