I just bought my first plane ticket since the 1900's.
Seriously, I haven't flown since 1998. I hear a few things have changed since then, so I guess I'll be wearing my good socks. And underwear. Just in case I have to show proof that I'm harmless.
I bet you'll never guess where I'm going, either.
That's right! A gen-yoo-wine blogging conference!
I hope I learn all kinds of pertinent stuff like:
- Is it offensive to a readership to use the Southern Plural Possessive "all y'all's"?
- Is it appropriate to call 10-15 people a "readership"?
- Will posting a picture of a baby in a bag be cause for alarm to Child Protective Services?
- Are readers interested in diaper changing videos wherein a bad rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'" is the highlight?
The part I am most looking forward to, though, is meeting a whole big bunch of ladies I have been
stalking reading about for years!
I can't wait to meet Lora Lynn of Vita Familiae! The first thing I'm going to do is show off my fancy Latin pronunciation of her blog name and see if I've been getting it right (in my head, where I say it) all this time. If not, I'll just keep saying it that way anyway. Who would know? IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD!
I'm also dying to meet Toni, The Happy Housewife. I won't tell her that I'm thinking of stealing a couple of her kids' names for our new baby, though. ~wicked laugh~
Crystal Paine, Money Saving Mom, (formerly Biblical Womanhood) will be there, too! I'll probably have to stand in line to meet her, but I can't wait!
And I'll be looking for Kimberly of Raising Olives. She's pregnant, too, so maybe I'll get a cute photo of the two of us together. But only if she doesn't make me look too fat.
I'm rooming with Monica from Daily Dwelling (She said I could borrow her curly hair products. Remember, Monica?) and Liz from Hoosier Homemade. Word has it that Liz is going to be bringing her famous cupcakes. They will be in our room the whole time! STAND BACK! Pregnant lady at the buffet!
What about you? Are you going to Blissdom? Who would you want to meet?
