Almost BloggedHer

I'm not at BlogHer.

I did get to go to an awesome event Thursday night, sponsored by Yahoo! (thanks, Yahoo!) with the bloggers of the Silicon Valley Moms Blog and Chicago Moms Blog (I write over there sometimes!) We partied it up at Viand in downtown Chicago and from the moment I drove my car up to the complimentary valet and was escorted into the restaurant "I'm with the Chicago Moms Blog" - I was taken to a roped off area and ushered in... so very V.I.P., I tell you!

(Ok, I'll admit that from the moment I got in my car and had an hour + to spend alone on my way downtown felt very V.I.P., too. It was heavenly!)


There was delicious food, fabulous chatter, and lots of great swag! I got to see my gal pals- the "original batch" of Chicago Mom Bloggers- Amy (she's live-blogging this weekend), Me, MJ, Sara (also live-blogging this weekend!), Danielle, & Jessica; and I met many more fantastic, creative, & super-smart Moms that I hope to see again! Jill and Beth from Silicon Valley Moms are awesome and I feel privileged to work with those two!





...Amy & I take a picture of our cute selves





After that great evening, I was really wishing I could attend the conference this weekend, but next year will be much easier for me to sneak away for a couple days... I'm really hoping it's
somewhere awesome- like California or Hawaii!

Now, with all these parties about blogging, and blogging about blogging, I think I need a blogging vacation! Who knew!

  2. Oh, Steph what fun you all had. I'm quite jealous to be honest. lol It looks like you had a super fun VIP (how cool!) time with everyone.

    Love the swag! Awesome stuff my friend. Oh, and we'll miss you if you need to take time off blogging ... but I totally understand.

  5. Every once in awhile I take vacations from blogging. But I don't announce them ahead of time, I'm ruder about it and just stop. Then again I'm not, like, a VIP blogger or anything. So I don't think I'm really missed. ;)

    I am taking More Milk Plus from Motherlove. Do you think the tea would help more? Simply offering it to me made me feel a little bit better. I really appreciate that!

  6. Sounds like so much fun! I really would love to go to BlogHer next year too!!
    It's fun that you have a group of bloggers in Chicago to meet up with, I haven't yet found anything like that where I live (Ottawa, Canada)

  9. How very fun! I'm still new to this blogging world. Maybe someday I'll be hip like you. Just the thought of having to drive into Chicago is more than I can handle right now. I need to get out more (and the grocery store does not count!)

  21. How fun and great free stuff! I just realized who you've been reminding me of from that last photo. A girl I used to work with who I always thought was so pretty!

    I thought I'd be bummed I decided to pass on Blogher this year but I can honestly say I wasn't the least bit sad. Now bummed for not going to Chicago is completely different!
