I went to Mom 2.0 and all I got was a Dove T-shirt ... but really so much more

This past weekend I experienced the best blogging conference I've attended yet -- the Mom 2.0 Summit. It was an hour's drive away from my home, so like a nerd I drove there each day instead of shelling out big bucks to stay at the Ritz-Carlton. (Which was fabulous, of course, and I'm sure worth every cent they asked for.)

Why was this the best conference so far?

It's the only one where I got to meet The Bloggess.

Who autographed her bestselling book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, which I am giving to Heather at Cool Zebras because I know she is going to looooove it.

It's the only conference where I got to party in the Versace Mansion in Miami Beach.

(See how shell-shocked I am? Thank you, Intel.)

With local bloggers.

(Caroline from Smarty Pants Mama, Lindsey from Mrs. Potts' Thoughts, Nicole from By Word of Mouth Musings and myself (and so many other Florida bloggers)

Where there was nudity. As art.

Where even the furnishings in the women's restroom cost more than my whole house.

Which necessitated buying a new outfit and new shoes that crippled me for two and a half days.

Where I was able to tell Intel that I'm the ultra Tropic mom.

Where I got to wear a coconut bra.

(With Nature's Path)

Where my photo was taken for a Times Square billboard.

(With Dove)

The only conference where I won something from Hallmark, the very people who make it their job to make you cry.

Mom 2.0 Summit was the ultimate blogging experience for me so far. I feel so lucky.

And crippled by those shoes to the point of wondering how I might accessorize with a cane.

But mostly lucky.

Looks like fun! If I wasn't such a wimp about meeting new people and actually needing to talk to them it would look like fun I mean. How lucky am I that I get Jenny's book? Super dooper lucky! :)

I heart you my bloggy friend, even if Facebook sometimes thinks you're an American Girl Doll. ;)

Looks like so much fun. I wish I could have come. Someday soon I will be able to go to a blog conference.

IT looks like it was an awesome time!

And, of course you are rocking the coconut bra!
