So, this was my first BlogHer conference. I'm still decompressing from it all and actually want to be back in NYC! I miss the energy of that city! I'm all about hustle and bustle. Today I'm just going to post a TON of photos from my trip. I know everyone who went is putting up their own posts.
I've also got a couple of brand posts I'm hoping to get done in the next week or so. Not sure how it'll go because my recovery time is unknown. lol I'm still walking around in a bit of a daze.

THESE photos are why I went to BlogHer…to meet bloggers and people I work with. Connecting was what was in it for me!

And this awesome lady, Amy Fulcher…I was SO happy to turn around and see her standing right behind me at a party. That stupidly HUGE smile on my face should tell you how thrilled I was. She and I have been Twitter buddies for at least a year if not more.
She blessed me SO much with my necklace. She was making these for people who were ordering them and I wasn’t able to. I know, sad panda, right? Well, the next thing I know, she’s pulling out a gift for me…my very own charm!!! I whipped my necklace off so I could swap out the charms. I LOVED it!! I thought it was going to be a picture of a toaster at first, but alas it was my blog logo. Yah, the toaster is an inside joke!
Thank you Amy for my gift! I love it!!!
At one of the parties I was able to hangout with a fantastic group of bloggers I love!! At the Expo I met with a ton of brands and people. One of the fun things that happened was when we were getting Sam’s car we found out we were across the street from a fire dept and they were just pulling their rig in!! I squealed with delight!! Yes, I was going in for a photo. I’m am definitely cheesy like that! They were good sports! NYC’s finest!
