I Only Took Two Photos While I Was Away

... and neither of them are of people.

Wednesday night I stayed at the Doubletree in downtown Chicago because I would be getting up early to attend the KmartDesign styling session before BlogHer. I got a warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in, and pillows of affirmation on my bed.

That night ranks up there as possibly my favorite of the whole trip. Jenny (my friend I've known my entire life) came by after she got off work and we went to dinner with Esther & Jude.Then Jen hung out in my room with me & Ivy and we just chilled and talked and it was nice. She's not a blogger or a Mom, but she totally gets it.



The next morning we were off bright and early to the Sears headquarters where we met the designers and look! I had my own tag thing on the clothes rack like at a fashion show!

You can see photos they took here and they even filmed some of it- you have to see the video here at the kmartdesign.com site (I LOVE THIS VIDEO!), as well as a contest you really should enter- they are giving away 25 $100 gift cards- super simple to enter.


I still haven't had a chance to scour flickr for all the pics people took at BlogHer so I can show off some of the KmartDesign pieces I chose, including the jeans. Yes, jeans.

  1. Seeing Ivy and you again was wonderful. I'm sad we didn't see each other very much where we could talk and take photos. I miss you.

    You looked beautiful, btw. :)

  3. How fun! I am very surprised by the outfits. They look great. The whole jeans issue is a shocker, but they looked totally cute.

  5. I really like this outfit. The top and jeans fit you so perfectly. Were those the jeans you liked? http://www.flickr.com/photos/kmartdesign/3750725860/

    I'm ALWAYS trying to find good jeans that aren't so low cut that my mommy roll hangs over them!

  6. How fun. Only the sears photo link is working. The video and giveaway are not. Maybe it's just my computer.

    So did you do a fashion show for them or just get to try on stuff?

    Sorry for the frustrations of your trip. Dwell on the fun times.

  13. Loved watching the video and looking at the pictures. Your 2 pictures you took were the best ones. I saw a lot of Paula. She looked so thin in the pictures.

  16. Just stopping by to say how nice it was to meet you and Ivy. She's just beautiful! I've been working with the twins on blowing kisses since I got home... :-)

  18. HOW COOL, that tag thing would have made me feel so important. I'm a nerd that way.

  19. Love the pillow, and the tag...and honestly, if Ivy is on the actual invite, then she is invited!! I'm sure she'll hang in other bars and go to other concerts when she's older ;) It's such a personal choice as to where your children can be comfortable and happy. And honestly, as long as I'm not responsible for them, children at functions like you described really aren't on my radar!
    Clearly, Ivy is very, very, happy snuggled up to you.

  20. I heart you and Ivy. That is all.

  21. I am so glad I was part of one of your favorite moments, and I wasn't even at the conference :)

    I am glad that Weds. night dinner and hang out meant as much to you as it did to me. Love you and I loved playing with Ivy! Still need to send you that pic of us. I'll do that now!

  22. I think my fave part of BlogHer too was just chatting and the one on one time I had with people.
    Your K-Mart pics are great. Looks like a lot of fun!

    Getting to see and hear you and Ivy is icing on the cake.
