I'm going to #BlogHer12!

My water might break at BlogHer '12
Can you believe it?  Yes, me.  At 34 weeks pregnant.

I will be roaming the streets of NYC, going to sessions, eating lots of food, party hopping like it's my job {because really? It will be my job while I'm there.  And it's hard work ;} Oh, and you best believe that I will be keeping up with everyone {maybe sometimes waddling a little behind, but still} because I get to see these lovies from BlogHer11 again...

Andalso?  I get to see and meet even MORE girlies.  You know, the ones that live in my computer.  Girls that I've been talking to for years.  And I finally get to meet them in just a few short days.  SQUEE!

I really lucked out that the conference is in NYC this year though, otherwise, I probably wouldn't have been able to go {um, no more flying for this mama.}  I get to road trip it up from Philly to NYC with this awesome girl.  And I will be rooming with her, her and her and I simply can. not. wait. to squeeze them.
Packing will be a bit rough this time.  It's not that I have to limit my baggage or anything {though, I'm sure everything will fit into 1 wheely suit case} it's that I feel like I don't have a ton to wear.

Being 8 months pregnant and walking around NYC in August, I'm obviously shooting for comfy summer dresses or skirts during the day a few nicer dresses at night.  But, since this is likely my last pregnancy and I'm nearing completion here, I also don't want to spend a lot of money on clothes that I won't get much use out of.

So I figured, instead of going out and buying this dress... {how perfect is that for Sparklecorn? Sigh.}

I could be a good girl {darn!}, save some money, and just accessorize some of the dresses I already own.  So?  I went shopping in my closet.  {Um, and my sister's closet too.}  Here are some of the dresses I picked out...
And I stole this one from my sister... {a shot from her maternity session with Steph!}
It's orange.  I love it.  I also stole a hot pink dress and an orange halter top maternity shirt as well.  Thank gawd she's pregnant too ;)

And with a few fun accessories like these..
 ...along with some glitter, sparkly shoes and a few surprise elements, I think I'll be just fine. {And it's okay that the necklace rests right on top of my belly right?  Almost like it's sitting on a shelf.  Okay, I thought it was fine too.}  I'll also pack a few casual outfits as well- capri's, tanks, jeans, comfy shoes (!!!) and a few skirts- and I'll be on my way!
Oh, and one other thing I want to add {that I am super excited about}... Jenni from the Blog was just named as one of the Top 20 Finalists for the 2012 BlogLuxe Awards!  Ahhhhhhh!!  There were nearly 200 amazing blogs nominated for the awards, and I am so honored to be among the top 20.  I mean, really!?!  How did that even happen??  Thank you to all those who voted for me!  The 5 winners will be announced on Thursday night, August 2nd at the SocialLuxe Party!  Can't wait =)

So, if you're going to BlogHer12, SAY HI!  I'm not scary. {Well, maybe a little.} And you certainly won't miss me.  I look like this...

...and I'm the girl with the big belleh. =)

Sending a huge thank you to Medifast. The program helped me lose 30 pounds of baby weight after Brynn and I'll do it again after delivering this little peanut!  If you are interested in starting the Medifast program or have any questions, feel free to ask me!

Hey there! Barbie from The Artsy Fam was telling me about you and how awesome you are. I'm headed to BlogHer too and would love to meet you!

Cute outfits, btw!

Jani said...

That's really just a basketball, right? Hey, I'm new to the blogging world, won't be at BlogHer this year...but please give my DIL Marie (makeandtakes) a hug at SocialLuxe. On second thought a hug may not work with your belleh! And it's not that big. Ok....maybe it is! Be careful and have fun in NYC!

Miranda said...

I *kind of* want to touch your belly even though it's a big, pregnant-lady no no and I NEVER want to touch pregnant bellies. It's just too cute.

Also, that made me sound like a creepy McCreeper and I'm not. Promise.

Krystal said...

I'll be the weirdo trying to feel the baby move, and rubbing your belly. That's ok, right? You look fabulous BTW, see you soon!

Dumb Mom said...

Gonna hug on you and that belly of yours. Unless? Is that awkward? Because now that I typed it, it seems sorta weird. How about a fist bump. Let's just fist bump. I enjoy those too.
