BlogHer '11 Takeaways


After a crazy five days away from my family, I’m finally back home.

Well, my body is back home, but I seem to have lost my brain somewhere between San Diego and Sacramento.

Four nights with a combined total of about 53 minutes of sleep will do that to you, I guess.

What a whirlwind of a trip it was.

My lovely and pregnant friend and roommate, Katie, was a great sport and kept up with those of us who couldn’t blame our exhaustion on our pregnancies. I snuggled up beside her every chance I got and tried to catch some of her baby dust.

Cross your fingers for me that it worked.

I may have touched her stomach a few more times than was appropriate (sorry, Katie!) and my early prediction is she’s going to have a girl.

I spent some time talking to some awesome companies who are working to provide great products and services to pregnant women and it was wonderful to hear their enthusiasm.

As a result of some of those conversations, I have some great giveaways coming your way, so watch this space. I truly can’t wait to share them with you.

Now I’m off to try to find my brain. Maybe it’s at the bottom of my suitcase. I’ll be back tomorrow!
