3599 Women and Me (part 1)

So I've been at BlogHer for two days now.

How am I doing?

My feet hurt, my back aches, and my head is spinning.

All in a good way.

My stress is gone-ish.

I've seen many great bloggers like Scary Mommy, MamaKat and Heather Spohr, but have been too shy to say hi.

I've hung out with Kelli and Hilary, and said hi to Jen, Toni, Liz, and Catherine.

I had lunch with the President of McDonalds.

I've felt like a face in the crowd.

I've felt on top of the world.

I brought loads of swag from the Expo to my room.

I ate delish room service pizza.

I can see home plate of the Padre's PetCo field from my hotel.

I have a list of parties to attend, and no idea how to get to and from them!

I've cancelled a few meetings and social events for simply the need to decompress, and I'm better for it.

I got lost in the convention center, but ended up meeting a nice woman who asked, "what's a Blogger?!" and filled her in.

In a nutshell, it's cool, but very overwhelming.

I should have started with a small conference for my first one, but alas I'm here, it's happening, and it's working out.

I worried what I'd wear and what my shoes would look like, and honestly no one cares.  I see flip flops everywhere (it's San Diego), but also stilettos and lots of wedges.

I ended up shopping in the hotel gift shop to get out of my own heels for flats.

You live, you learn.

    Say hi to mama kat from me! :)

    Glad you're not pushing yourself, and hopefully I can go with you another time. Keep having fun!!

    I hope today's been easier for you. Isn't it amazing just how much is going on?! (In a past life I worked with a conference organizing company and we put on conferences 2 times a year. It's the most overwhelming experience - next to giving birth and raising children ;-> )

    Take the time to de-compress. There will be more conferences in your future.

    XO, Love ya!

    Sounds like fun!!!

    When you get home, email me & tell me more about Blogher. I keep seeing that name on various blogs. Seems like "the place to be" but I don't really know how it all works. Fill me in!

    I'm glad that you wrote this, Jen!

    I've yet to go to a conference and this post seriously made me rethink which one to attend first :)

    Can't wait to read more! xoxo
