Pictures from the Thursday Parties

You can read all my BlogHer posts from this link.

Thursday night kicked off with a bunch of parties. The first one was a small one for BlogHer CEs and speakers. I got to hang out a lot with Briar from Unwellness. I met Kate from Sweet/Salty when I asked her to take my picture with Briar and then in figuring out that we knew each other, both shrieked. I know that last sentence didn't make sense grammatically, but I'm really tired. TW and Denise won a blackberry at the party and they gave it to me, which has earned them my eternal love as well as that of the Wolvog. I sent him an email tonight to let him know that electronics are on their way.


TW and Denise and I with the blackberry. I love you, Denise and TW. I love you Sprint!

The purple drink the bartender convinced me to try. I almost ended up drinking the sample copy, much to my chagrin.

Sassymonkey, Laurie, and Sarah and the Goon Squad



At the People's Party, I met Magpie from Magpie Musings and Aurelia from No Matter How Small (though she is not pictured). And I met up with Alexa. And Cecily and Sarah again. And really cool people like Red Headed Lefty. Magpie and I have Nora's head on a stick, so we brought her to the party.


Side notes: BlogHer '10 will be in New York! They announced it today. Also, there is obviously not going to be a Roundup today because I overshot how much time I would have to write thoughtful posts. But stay tuned because we are having an ALI meetup at lunch, I'm about to blog Briar's panel, and I will be uploading pictures and posting news throughout the day.

It sure looks like a good time! I wish I was there! That is great news about it being in New York. That will make it easier to attend. NY is only 2 1/2 hours away. I love the pictures. I wonder what was in the purple drink? Have fun!

How will Wolvog reconcile his love of the Verizon store with his new love of Sprint?

So jealous! I almost FeEx'd Magpie my head on a stick too, cause I wanted to go so bad.

But next year in NY there is a good chance I'm THERE!
