Exciting BlogHer News

The three wonderful ladies at MommyBloggers have gotten together to send a fellow breeding cyber pontificator to BlogHer this summer.

I’m shocked and more than way excited to be the one they chose to send. I’m guessing in the end they picked the applicant who could benefit most from meeting all the amazing women there and basking in their wise bloggishness. I am seriously so grateful and so nervous. Chris has graciously offered to take me in off the street so we can be hotel roomies. Now all I have left to take care of is airfare…

Any takers? If you have airmiles or Benjamins you’d like to donate to send me from Seattle to San Jose, you can expect to receive your very own Daring-Young-Hand-Crafted Disney princess dress or other costume of your choice in time for Halloween this year. Here are some samples of my work:
What? You don’t usually spend $250 on Halloween costumes for your kids? I weep for them.

I also weep for Alicia who will be paying dearly for the unflattering pictures she posted of me on her blog today. I have PhotoShop and I’m not afraid to use it. As I repeatedly tell Laylee, there will be consequences… and they will happen on approximately Wednesday. Tomorrow I’m gonna be asking for moving tips.

Magoo took his first unassisted steps while I was out of town and Laylee greeted me this morning by telling me that she had goobies in her eyes last night. It’s okay because she took them out of her eyes and fed them to the monsters. Hmm…okay. Welcome home to me. The trip was great (details to follow) but I sure missed these crazy kids… and Dan, don’t get me started. That man is sweetness personified.

Sounds like you had a fun time. I am anxious to see what you do to my good friend Alicia. ROFL!!
How exciting getting to go to the BlogHer conference, what an honor.

If I had two nickels I would roll them your way. I would!

Can't wait to meet you at Blogher! It'll be like camp! Except without the poison ivy. And fart jokes.

Okay, maybe just the poison ivy.

Congratulations! If I had air miles I'd give them to you, no costume required. And its good to know you take making that monthly exam seriously. You truly are an example!

Did you seriously MAKE those costumes? Girl, I'm impressed.

Can't wait to hear your take on the Idaho trip. I've been reading all the posts and living vicariously through each and every one.

I am so jealous! It sounds like you guys had a freaking awesome time. Emily, Alicia, and Taffi are so cool! I can't wait to see the revenge pictures of Alicia. I love those guys. I would have loved to have met you, and your sister, and the rest. But alas, I'm going to Idaho this weekend, couldn't make it last. Congrats on going to BlogHer and those costumes are to die for! I covet your sewing skills.

rofl! It is my fault you know. I am the one that kept making us take pictures over and over because I don't know how to keep my friggin' eyes open.

And I'm loving the constumes.

I think you should open up a paypal account and have everyone who reads you donate a dollar. You would be raking in the dough, girlfriend!

Emily has a great idea about the paypal account. It would be so easy to donate to your cause.

Those costumes are incredible. You have awesome talent.

Oh, and while you're altering pics in PhotoShop, can you make my bosom a little bigger? Kidding!

Although I have no air miles to offer, I live in San Jose and would be glad to offer a great ward to attend, and some great places to eat.

YEE-HAW, DYM is on her way to the Bay!
