Don't forget to drop a comment on the "Wondertime" post. The more comments there are, the more subscriptions I will give away. Even the comments that aren't necessarily entries count, so come on by before midnight tonight!


Plane ticket? Check.

Hotel reservation? Check.

BabyHawk ordered? Check.

BlogHer registration completed? Check.

Little Bird is going to BlogHer. And so am I. And so is my momma.

San Fransisco is a long way from Raleigh. A long, long, long way. I had decided that it was too much for me to try and attend BlogHer again this year.

But then breastfeeding got easier. Bird and I started clicking better. He learned how to enjoy riding in different types of slings and wraps. I started getting more confident.

And then then, I realized that Susan would be there this year. Not just attending, but speaking too.

Last year, Susan didn't go to BlogHer. Instead, she started chemotherapy. The rest of that is her story, and if you don't know it, you should go and read it.

And then then then, Kristen gave me some good advice about being a momma to a 6 month old at BlogHer and posted about what the must have accessory is this year.

Since it is the one time in my life I will have the must have item anywhere or anytime, I signed on up.

I signed up and even got my momma to come too. She will get to visit with some of her friends in Sacramento before meeting me and Little Bird in San Fransisco for the conference. She doesn't want to do the whole event, even though she is a blogger. And I suppose, technically, a mommyblogger. She is, after all, my mommy.

So who will I be seeing there?

Glad to hear you are going. :) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous gail DATE:Friday, June 6, 2008 at 11:51:00 AM EDT I hope you guys have a wonderful time. Again, like last year a little jealous but again, like previous posts, will live through you. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Mamma DATE:Friday, June 6, 2008 at 1:27:00 PM EDT Little Bird is going to be so sick of my hugs and kisses.

I can't wait to see you! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Liz DATE:Friday, June 6, 2008 at 2:46:00 PM EDT i am brokenhearted that i'll miss you, bird, and YOUR MOMMA!

i wish i could figure out a way to both afford the trip and pull it off with just a teeny 4-week-old baybee. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Steph DATE:Friday, June 6, 2008 at 4:50:00 PM EDT I hope you have a GREAT time and I hope you LOVE your Baby Hawk! We have a toddler hawk (as G is a giant and I wear L) and it's very nice! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Carly DATE:Friday, June 6, 2008 at 5:10:00 PM EDT I will be there! Everything is booked and paid for. I can't wait. I had so much fun last year that I hope to keep doing this year after year. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jessica DATE:Friday, June 6, 2008 at 10:05:00 PM EDT So...UGH...Jon keeps telling me that I can go. He'll pay for the tickets, figure out a way to get me there. I keep figuring out reasons for me NOT to go though... IT'S SO DUMB.
In any regard, about a week or so ago, I got an email from BlogHer. I've been nominated for the BlogHer hero's award...It includes a round trip ticket and admission.
I'm holding out hope that I might win...I've never won anything though. If I go though...OMG I will be SO excited to FINALLY meet you!! :) ----- --------
