Home Sweet Home.

Well guys, I am home from a fabulous five days in the great New York City and tired does not even begin to describe how my body feels!

I want to take this whole week to tell you about my fun filled trip, so be on the look out for celebrity sightings, wonderful food and other exciting things. We went to the City for the BlogHer conference. The conference was good, but the highlights of it included the fabulous girls (bloggy friends) from all over the US that I finally got to meet up with in-real-life.

And the SWAG.


Insanely enough, this wasn't even half of it. Oh me, oh my!

When it finally arrives to my house in the mail (yes, we had to have it SHIPPED HOME), I will take a picture of it all and show you all the free goodies we got. I was flabbergasted. My gracious sakes alive.

I kind of expected the classes to be more informative and more structured than they were. Maybe it was just the ones I attended, I'm not sure. But I got to network with a lot of people and get my business cards in lots of little hands, so that was good.

That, and the hotel room conference rates made the trip entirely worth it! When you get a room a block from Times Square for that rate, it's a little hard to pass up.

Oh, and I was totally on Pioneer Woman's flight on the way up! I stalked her (and Marlboro Man - he's SO nice) down in baggage claim and introduced myself. She was sweeter and nicer than I ever could have imagined. I love her!!

She asked me about my blog and said. it. sounded. familiar. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I died.)

And I choose to believe she meant what she said and she wasn't just trying to make me feel good. Because P-dub would never lie.


(We both got up at 4:30 that morning. That should be a sin.)

We ran into her again at the conference and she said "HI GIRLS!!!!" as we passed her. She totally remembered us. And we are totally BFF.

So, the conference was good, but the rest of the trip was even more exciting. I'll show you what I mean in the posts to come.
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. I'm so excited to live vicariously through you!!

  2. Looks like everyone had lots of fun. And can't believe you met her! :-)

  9. i can't believe you met the pioneer woman! how cool is THAT!?!

  10. It was SO great meeting you!!

    And I totally agree about the session. Not informative. At all. Next year I'm not sure if i'd even buy a session pass and only buy an Expo/Party pass. It was actually rather frustrating.


  11. You are too funny!! I read your tweets and am so excited to hear more about it! :)

  12. Your trip sounds awesome!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!!! Also, what is BlogHer? how is this different from normal blogging? Is this a weird question?

  13. Yay, can't wait to hear all about it.

  14. Cant wait to hear about it and see all the swag you got.

  15. SO COOL! Can't wait to see even more pics!

  16. Can't wait to hear more about your trip! I live NYC and it must have been fabulous to meet all those great women, especially Pioneer Woman. She doesn't live too far away, I may have to start stalking her.

  17. How exciting! I'm so jealous of you going to NYC and BlogHer! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  18. lucky girl! i must admit i am a bit jealous!
