Crazy fun? Or stupid idea?

Tomorrow I'm going to California to meet the amazing Suzi Blu for the first time in person (we've skyped and talked on the phone and texted lots) and going with her to CHA!

I'm a worrier, so even though I'm absolutely positive it's going to be SUPER fun and amazing, I'm also slightly terrified. (Can you be slightly terrified?) I have no idea what it's going to be like, what to bring, what we're going to do...and it's the first time I've ever been away from Mini Me except when my grandpa died in 2008.

I'm REALLY excited about traveling alone for the first time in four years!! The last time I got to travel by myself was when I was pregnant with Mini. I LOVE flying, I love airports, I love it all - but it's a lot easier when I can just curl up in a chair with my Nook and read away the layover than to try and distract a toddler from the fact that he's been traveling for nine hours and we're not even to Scotland yet. I'm babbling because I'm nervous, sorry! I just didn't want to miss blogging today, since I'm probably not going to be able to while I'm gone.

Why the random pictures of Mini Me? I just want you to see what a character he is sometimes. He's so silly! He says "Take a picture of me, Mommy!" So I do. Then "Take a picture of me making the angry face, Mommy!"


  1. Hi Goog,
    What a beautiful boy you have there. I have one of my own too (9 yrs old). Don't we just wish they stayed cheeky & sweet like that!? ;)

    How exciting for you to be joining Suzi at CHA. I'm very happy for you (& a little bit jealous too). Your "slightly terrified" is a natural excitement of freedom from your 'normal' life & very special company you are about to enjoy. I know you are going to have an awesome time.

  2. Boy he sure does love his blue icies doesn't he?! He's so adorable...

    ABout the trip...I vote for crazy fun!! Can't wait to talk to you while your over there, and especially when you get home!! ( so I can live it through you)

    I'm sure it will bring literal meaning to the phrase.."what a trip"!! Have an amazing time, and don't hold back...GO FOR IT!

    Love you♥
