I have a few things I am especially excited for . . .

Participating in a blogging panel –> if you are attending, check it out on Saturday morning at 9:15am: Blogs in Transition: Embracing your blog. And I will be doing a blog recap on our panel discussion next week, so if you miss something, or can’t be there, be on the look out for a recap post next week!


Dinner on Friday night –> Becky and I are hosting a dinner mini-mingle at Kindee Thai restaurant before the cocktail party. I am super excited to meet some new blends.

Cocktail party! I don’t think I have even been to a cocktail party! I am looking forward to mingling, meeting new people and chatting about blogging! And I have no idea what I am going to wear!! I have a few options packed. . . but wish me luck. Winking smile 

Blends. I think I am most excited to meet the faces of the bloggers that I have come to know and love through their blogs.

Roommates –> Becky, Melanie and Caroline! I even made treats. Smile 


Blogging tips. I am super excited for the conference topics, panel discussions and work time built into the day to do some new things on my blog. Don’t worry, I’ll share everything that I learn so if you aren’t coming, you won’t miss out!!

Ok, I’m off to pack! Wish me luck. Smile You better believe that I am going to be following Becky’s tips for packing <—best tips ever, seriously changed the way I pack for trips!!

Have you been to a blogging conference? Any tips for my 1st time??

  6. Good luck on your presentation! Can’t wait to hear all about it! And I don’t think I’ve ever been to a cocktail party before, either? A cocktail hour at a wedding, but not a cocktail party!
