I actually have like four other posts sitting in my head, but wanted to just holler, “I made it to BlogHer!”
I futzed around not doing what I should’ve been doing last night (packing) and finally got to bed around 1am, and I got up at 5am, showered, got ready and got myself to the airport.
I forgot how nice and easy it is to travel on your own! No tackling small people to yank off their shoes and send them marching through the metal detector on their own under the stern gaze of the TSA agent. No searching for vendors serving chicken nuggets, no avoiding vendors selling crappy over-priced toys.
Mom picked me up from the airport and we headed downtown and spent several hours walking around Navy Pier and grabbed lunch at Bubba Gump’s. She dropped me off at the Sheraton and here I am relaxing a few minutes before seeing if I can talk my way into the Social Luxe Lounge, though did I just read that it’s at a different hotel? Hmmm…better set up a Plan B, just in case!
