My BlogHer Weekend – Holy Moly!

By August 2, 2010Blogging

BlogHer is almost here and I am really nervous.  I’m incredibly excited but this is my first conference and it’s a biggie so I.Am.Scared!  I have jam packed my schedule, will be there as an official Huggies Every Little Bottom Ambassador and I am bringing baby Violet so I will have a lot of balls in the air.


The trip begins!  I fly in, lug myself and my baby and all of our stuff to the Harvard Club to stay for one night because the Hilton is full up on Wednesday!  I am glad that the club is relaxing and there will not be a lot of noise or confusion related to BlogHer as there will be at the Hilton I am sure. 

I am going to see Promises, Promises with some fabulous Blogging Ladies and could not be more excited about Wednesday night!  I want to thank Kristen from Rage Against the Minivan for setting this up and Art Meets Commerce for providing us with the tickets.  I am totally pumped to see another Broadway show.  Man I miss living in New York!!! 


Martha Stewart Bloggers Night Out – 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.  Um yes I want to go to the ultimate crafters partay!

People’s Party– I’m going to shoot for 8-ish and hope to meet lots of awesome bloggers!

Friday – The Conference Begins!

8:00 a.m. Drop Violet Off at Childcare

After Breakfast Stop in to see Violet and give tons of kisses and a little bewb to keep her happy!

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  As an official ambassador, I will be in the Huggies Every Little Bottom Booth 2713!  1 in 3 moms cannot afford diapers for her children.  Come and say hi and help keep babies in clean diapers!  You can win diapers too!

I need some lunch at this point and then I will pick up baby Violet and head to the Lasinoh Lactation Loungeon Level 2 to feed le bebe and hook up with some other nursing mommy bloggers!

I wil probably then walk around the exhibition hall and meet some companies and bloggers and maybe even attend an actual session at 2:45.  I mean this is a conference right? I should try to learn something!

Sweets in the City at 4:00 p.m.  Can I just say yum?


Robeez by Stride Rite Launch Party 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  I am hoping to hit this cool party with Violet before I get all mouthy with my bad self.   It’s right around the corner so I think it will work!

Mouthy Housewives Party7:30 – 10 p.m.  I am so excited to be off the wait list for this one.  I am a Mouthy Housewife and I fully expect to find lots of fellow mouthers off here.

 Kirtsy Voices of the Year Gala – 6:00 – 10:00 p.m.

BlogHer Voice of the Year Gala

Post the Gala I will be hanging out hallway style or with my non-bloggy besties that call NYC their home.  I seriously cannot wait to get in some seriously comfy clothes and relax!


It’s basically the same daytime as Day 1 except…

Holy hell I was picked for an interview with the Project Mom Casting girls and I seriously cannot believe it!  2:30 p.m. I will be interviewed!  Wish me oodles and goodles of good luck!

I am totally assuming I will be zonked by the time dinner rolls around but I do have a ticket to Blogaliciousand would love to make an appearance there with baby Violet before I head up for some much anticipated hallway chat and hopefully some singing of show tunes in those aforementioned hallways!


I fly home to my hubs and Sophia and Miles and what I am sure will be a hell of a mess!  I will pick up and put on my jailbird costume to roam the streets looking to raise my bail and help kids with Muscular Dystrophy.  I kid you not.  I am being arrested for this cause on August 25th and I need help!  Anyone who gives gets free advertising on this site.  Serious.

And then…..Sleep….and possibly some gesture of gratitude for mu husband for watching the kids for almost 5 days.

So what are your plans?  Will I see you at any of these events?  Please let me know in the comments because I would LOVE to meet you!
