Guess what I found out while I was at BlogHer last weekend (besides that I really like mini beef wellingtons)? That I am a bonafide, grade-A, card-carrying camera whore. As in, if someone pulls out a camera, I am somehow getting my big toothy grin in the shot.

So besides all the pics where I got in front of my own camera, I also managed to horn in other people’s camera shots. Bonus? You not only get to see me get progressively inebriated, but you get to see my roomie, Colleen (no, not me…the tall Colleen), who was so sweet and fabulous, letting me tag along to meet folks that she knew since I’ve been sort of out of the blogosphere for the past 8 or 10 months. You also get to see many of my other bloggy friends who are even nicer and more wonderfuller than they seem online, and all my new bloggy friends who weren’t put off by the short, camera-hogging wino (no, not me…oh wait, yes, that would be me).

Also? I’m a bit of a spaz, even when I haven’t been drinking (much).

Here are some videos I took while at the MamaPop Sparklecorn Extravaganza:

(yes, even though I learned some new writing skills, I’m not sharing them with you yet because I stink and I’m tired and dude, JUST LOOK AT ALL THE COOL PICS CUZ I MIGHT BE A BIT HUNGOVER STILL AND LACK ADEQUATE BRAIN FUNCTION!)

About the Author


This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.

Very cool. I had such a blast with you at BlogHer. There was Mrs. Potatohead, cream cheese-stuffed artichoke hearts, weird cocktails with Sobe sports drinks, me bum rushing you guys after BowlHer. Apparently the net gain for me was some great new friends and lots of pictures with me holding cocktails on the Interwebz. It was always the same drink, REALLY, right?

I love your slide show! I’ve never done one; I guess I should try!

One minor correction: That’s Michelle from Honest and Truly in the photo with me and Weaselmomma, just sayin’. 🙂

I loved spending time with you: you’re awesome!


Oh crap! Where did I get Heather from? Sheesh! thanks…correction has been made! Sorry about that, Michelle!


It is so weird to think that the blogs that I read are written by ACTUAL, REAL, LIVE PEOPLE! People who, well, look like people! Seriously . . . sometimes I forget that the things that appear on my computer are written by people somewhat similar to me, and that they aren’t just put there by the computer itself! (Yes, I need to get out more.) I am so glad that you had such a good time! Here’s hoping BlogHer comes somewhere in the Rocky Mountains soon!

Gasp! Where did you get mini beef wellingtons?

It was nice to meet you at BlogHer – you probably don’t remember because you were so inebriated and constantly asking me if I wanted to take your picture. With MY camera.



Hey girl. How are you? I just love reading your blog. You crack me up. I just started a blog myself. I was inspired by my friends. Sounds like you had a blast in the convention. Do you miss Chicago at all?


BWAHAHAHA! OK, I will accept that as an excuse… THIS TIME! Get some rest and hit the ground runnin.

This was an awesome post; and you ARE a camera whore, whoa, baby, those photos were awesome! You are so stinkin’ cute!
I had such a great time hanging out with you and getting to know you better; you were definitely a major reason why BlogHer was a hugely wonderful experience for me :).


Yay, I made your slide show! I swear it has taken me awhile to hog the computer for copious amounts of time to catch up on everyone’s blogher posts!!!! So great to meet you in person!!! 🙂
