I'm Back From BlogHer!

Oh, Lordy!

My roomies Liz from Yes/No Films, and Jenn from Also Known As...The Wife

The past five days have been a whirlwind of fun, friendships, learning, and laughter. I have no regrets and am so thankful for the opportunity to go to New York and meet some of the coolest people on the planet. I will do bigger recaps throughout the week, but today this mama is exhausted and will just do a little teaser for ya!
This picture is from our first night in NYC at happy hour at Old Castle Pub, located around the corner from The Hilton. $5 Absolut drinks in NYC? Yes, please!

I jokingly dubbed myself the 'Swag Mommy'
The day I left. My roomies kept asking the entire time how I would fit all my swag in my bags. Very carefully my friends, verrry carefully. Don't mind the vintage suitcase on the right, it's a long story! Haha...
I had the perfect amount of time away from Oregon. By the time I was ready to go, I was READY to go! Sunday was probably the longest day for me. The worst part being the drive to the airport (crazy taxi drivers getting me car sick), and then some flight delays caused by some weather debauchery.

View from the plane

Right as the pilot was informing us of delays, rain poured down and thunder struck. I prayed we would get home safely, as well as all the other flights that night. We waited a little over an hour before we were cleared for take off. We were able to watch satellite TV, though, so I caught some of the Olympics, which was nice. Also, when I got on the plane I noticed that Carrie Brownstein from Portlandia was on my flight!
I made it home in one piece and Mark was waiting for me at the gate. I was sooo happy to see him again. We promptly drove home and I passed out cold.
Today I am recuperating from a great trip, but I will be posting more the next couple of weeks, including a couple of small swag giveaways! I will be doing reviews of some of the products I received as well.  I can't wait to share with everyone about this experience!!!




  1. Okay who is Carrie Brownstein??

    And I am stealing the pic for FB and for my post :) thanks for linking to my site!

  2. I'm still holding out for a vlog from Ruby. Maybe she can explain what she, Sawyer, and Mark did while you were gone. :)
