Upcoming Conference

A couple of months ago, Lane Bryant asked me if I wanted to participate in their blogger conference. hmmm...let's think about that for half a second, shall we? I love Lane Bryant! I love blogging! And I love to travel! But with all the expenses from the wedding and our need to save money for a house, I didn't think I would be able to swing it. Amazingly, Lane Bryant said that they were covering travel expenses! So I am off to the Lane Bryant blogger conference in June. Whoo hoo! But you know what is the best part? I emailed Kimberly yesterday and she is going to be there too! I am really looking forward to meeting her and the other plus size bloggers that will be there. Are any of you going to be there?

What I Wore While Emailing With Kimberly About The Lane Bryant Conference:

Please bring these shoes, bracelet and skirt with you to the conference (so I can sneak into your hotel room and steal them!!). It will be awesome to meet you too!

Denise - It's in Columbus. Too far for us to turn it into a visit. :(

BBM - Yeah, I wish you were coming too. Don't feel bad, though. I just saw the attendance list and it's tiny. It looks like they only invited 10 people or so.

Kelly - I'm excited too. I'll be posting about it while I am there.

v - I've had it for about a year. I think they still have it at Kmart, so you should check their online site. That's where I got it. And as an FYI - a lot fo their skirts comes in multiple colors or completely different fabric patterns, but they only put one image in the main listing. So you think it's an ugly floral print or something and it's not until you click on it that you realize it also comes in another absolutely gorgeous pattern. So I've learned to click on anything that I like the cut of, just to see if I also like another fabric option. This particular skirt I think comes in this pattern and a black. But don't quote me on that. It's been a while since I looked at it online.

K - Thank you so much!

Sarah - Thanks! I think it will be a blast.

Kimberly - I can't wait to meet you too! You know, Kasmira and I currently have a temporary jewelry swap going on. I am certainly open to the option of bring a couple of things to the conference for a temporary swap. I'll email you too, to see if you are interested.

SHeeley - What a kind thing to say! I feel really honored, esp after I see the other bloggers that are going to be there. I am small peanuts!

Marianna - thanks!

Lesa - thanks! It's been sitting a drawer for awhile, while I tried to find a way to wear it. It's small, so it looks odd on a sweater. I'm glad that this worked.

LegacyofPearl - it IS a great bracelet. Sadly, it is several years old.

Melissa - thanks!

Kasmira - thanks! It's something I can see you wearing. I would offer it up for another swap in the future, but if it fits my wrists, I think it would just fall right off yours. I have quite large hands and wrist and most bracelets are way too small for me.

Brooke - thanks! I'm excited!
