Heading to NYC for Martha Stewart's Bloggers' Night Out & BlogHer '10 Conference!

I can't believe I pulled it off! Tomorrow, I am hopping on a plane to New York City to attend both BlogHer '10 and Martha Stewart's Blogger's Night Out! It was totally a spur of the moment decision, but when I get my mind set on something...I tend to go for it! After receiving the invitation for the Martha blogger event and hearing the buzz about BlogHer, I knew I couldn't miss out!
I just secured a pass for BlogHer, a flight (thank you Southwest Airlines!), and a room with a group of fabulous mom bloggers TODAY!
Yes...TODAY and I am flying out TOMORROW!
EEeeeek!

It isn't easy to leave my family, even for a few days...but my wonderful husband urged me to go for it! I have to give a little shout out to my neighbor, Christine and my assistant, Toni who wouldn't let me give up on the effort to go! Thank you also to my friend, Jess who predicted
"the stars will align"
for this...and I think they just did!

Did I mention AMY ATLAS will be there? I'm giddy.
Catch you later..I need to start packing!
