playing Santa at BlogHer10 :)

Seriously, that’s what it felt like! I love giving gifts and making people happy. At my last job, I was the accountant and got to hand out the paychecks–best part of the job! Making people 🙂 And it was the same at BlogHer. Thanks to my sponsor, Simplisse Breastfeeding Products, I got to hand out some awesome swag bags to some very excited people!


These swag bags had 3 of their most popular products: nipple cream, breastmilk storage bags, and

BlogHer 2010

I think I got more sleep last night at home than the previous three nights combined at BlogHer. Funny that I was excited to get away and be able to sleep and I ended up with less than I do with a baby next to me. That pretty much sums up BlogHer10: exhausting and non-stop… but tons of fun!

I started freaking out when I got on the bus to the airport on Thursday, crying as I left Ryan behind and thinking, “what am I doing?!!” But I’m so glad I

I’m so thankful

…for Simplisse Breastfeeding Products, for a number of reasons. 1) They sponsored this trip to BlogHer10 and I’m having a blast! 2) I really love their products and 3) they care about breastfeeding moms (and we need that kind of support!)

To me, Simplisse is innovative. They’re producing products that truly help breastfeeding moms. With the help of lactation consultants, product engineers and fellow moms, they are improving upon the products that are generally offered on the market. It hasn’t been done before because it hasn’t been cost-effective. Simplisse put the

NYC: so good they named it twice

I leave for BlogHer in New York, New York on Thursday morning… I have Yes, this blog post is on the list, so I am busy crossing something off 😛 Ryan didn’t fall asleep tonight until just after 9pm (usually does at 7pm) so I lost most all of my free time – AHHHHHHHHHHH. He just knows I’m trying to get ready to leave!! 🙁

But let’s be positive and look at what I’ve done:

~Made some awesome progress on my BlogHer to-do list, including writing

Adventure: defined by a mom

I would have considered myself adventurous… you know, in my previous life. I enjoyed new things–anything exciting, thrilling, maybe dangerous. I’ve camped on the ground, under the stars, with the dingoes in the Australian outback. I’ve swam with stingrays and sharks and wild dolphins. I’ve zip-lined through the rainforest. I’ve fed wild monkeys. I went crawling through underground caves. I survived Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I’ve been white-water rafting and skydiving. I’ve stood at the back end of a horse and helped birth a foal.
