My First Blogher in San Diego

I’m at my first Blogher Conference!!! IMG 6839 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I didn’t do any packing until today so Ben had time to come meet me for lunch before I left to San Diego.IMG 6805 600x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I had the usual because I know I’ll miss it over the weekend wlEmoticon smile8 My First Blogher in San Diego (The usual = Everything but the kitchen sink salad, carbs that miss the camera and too many seltzer waters.)IMG 6804 800x600 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

Then I was headed on my way!IMG 6811 600x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

Blogher 2011 is in San Diego about 70 miles south of where I live. So, I just took a drive down the coast wlEmoticon smile8 My First Blogher in San Diego Not too shabby.IMG 6808 800x600 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

But, there was a major crisis with my hotel! The Marriot Gaslamp gave away my room because they said I was supposed to check in yesterday. Then, they said they were sold out and I was basically out of luck wlEmoticon sadsmile2 My First Blogher in San Diego 

My car was waiting outside for me to decide if I wanted to valet, I was holding all my bags and laptop and the guy handed me a 800 number to ‘figure it out’.

I went to the restroom. Cried. Then, pulled it together and found another hotel. Done and done.IMG 6821 800x532 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

After checking in I headed straight to the Blogher Expo!IMG 6837 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

Where I cleaned a toilet. Don’t you always smile when you clean your toilet?IMG 6832 533x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I was starving and decided to opt out of cleaning the rest of the bathroom. Instead, I headed for the food samples!IMG 6835 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I explained to the Hawaiian bread people that I ran 14 miles this morning and needed carbs. Luckily, they looked the other way as I stuffed my bag full of packages wlEmoticon smile8 My First Blogher in San Diego And by looked the other way I mean asked me to kindly move away from the sweet bread.

I rushed back to the hotel to swap out some stuff and met Kath for the cocktail party.IMG 6844 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

San Diego is so pretty. IMG 6842 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San DiegoBonus points for anyone who knows what “San Diego” means according to Anchor Man?

 

I tried the mojito and promptly ditched it in favor of food!IMG 6847 533x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I would always rather eat than drink. Actually, I would rather eat than do anything else!

See, there’s no drink in my hands because I need it free to grabbing comida!IMG 6858 533x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

After the cocktail party we headed to a get together by Stoneyfield

They had their new frozen yogurt flavors there to try and a full toppings bar. I died a little of happiness when I found out.IMG 6862 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I considered just dumping a scoop of fro-yo on this bowl of graham bunnies, but decided to be less gluttonous than normal to save face.IMG 6866 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

The blueberry frozen yogurt is my fave. The chocolate chips and cookies were already consumed before taking this picture…IMG 6870 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

Then, as if the night couldn’t get any better… Roni showed up! I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but Roni is the first blog I ever read!!! I started reading her in college after I found her from the weight watchers message boards. She is my favorite and I totally ‘get it’ when she writes her “Note to self” or talks about other food issues that so many others don’t understand. I love her <3IMG 6875 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

Kath and I eventually made our way to the Sparklecorn party. IMG 6889 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

We were there when it just started so we had free run of the glow sticks.IMG 6879 533x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I have no idea what I’m trying to do…IMG 6880 800x533 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

But we wrapped it up kind of early since I don’t want to look like this guy in the morning!IMG 6884 532x800 thumb My First Blogher in San Diego

I am meeting someone super super cool tomorrow! Can’t wait to share wlEmoticon smile8 My First Blogher in San Diego 

See ya later!

    My guess is Giuliana Rancic because she tweeted not long ago that she is on her way to BlogHer? I’m probably wrong though. :D

    Looks like an amazing event so far! I just got some Stoneyfield frozen dark chocolate yogurt at Whole Foods last night and it’s to die for. So creamy and still fat free! The best is that it’s all natural and only 100 calories a serving. I am ditching Dreyer’s/Edy’s synthetic stuff.

    I read this post and then started singing Gin Blossom’s “Hey Jealousy” in my head. :) Hope you’re having fun!

    PS: That blue dress it hot! I want to borrow it! :)
