in life

OH MY GOD! It’s finally here!

Blogher 2009 starts tomorrow. And though I leave in the morning, I still haven’t packed or prepared myself. I’ll be the one freaking out on twitter tonight as the excitement and nervousness hits me all at once. In the meantime, I sit down and write this post for you. See how much I love you all?

I’ve seen a few posts here and there from people introducing themselves in time for the conference. It seems like a good idea so that fellow BlogHer attendees can get to know you. Here’s my attempt.

Quick Facts

  • I’m 29 years old. It hasn’t hit me yet that I’ll actually be turning 30 next year and will no longer be in my 20s. As far as BlogHer participants go, I think I’m on the younger side of the spectrum.
  • I live in Orlando, Florida and no, I don’t go to Disney every day. But, I might start going more often now that I’m a part of the Disney Florida Magical Moms group.
  • I’m originally from Puerto Rico. This is an important part of who I am.
  • I’ve been married 6 years and have a 3 year old daughter.
  • I love to dance. Love. In a future life, I would like to be a professional dancer. Until then, I’m happy to dance in my living room, car, and the upcoming BlogHer parties.
  • I’m short. I know this. You don’t have to point it out when you meet me.
  • I don’t like socks, coffee, or okra. The coffee bit shocks people the most.
  • I’m shy most of the time. I may not come up to you and introduce myself, but if you start up a conversation with me, I’d be happy to talk.
  • I’m attending BlogHer for the first time. Be easy on me.

Be sure to look for me at BlogHer. I’m looking forward to meeting as many people as I can. Find a picture on my about page.

Leave a comment so I can get to know you too!

You’ll be fine! I’m excited for you.

Though I am sad that I won’t be going with you to make you talk to people first.. oh good times at the womens conference! 🙂

@Kelly, Guess what? I actually went up to people on my own and introduced myself! 😉

It was so nice to meet you at lunch, Melanie. Thank you so much for the Little Pim demo. It’s exactly the kind of thing I’ve been looking for to teach Chinese to my girls.

@Asianmommy, Really good to meet you too! Please be sure to let Little Pim know you liked the demo you got from me. They’re looking for feedback. @little_pim on twitter. 🙂
