BlogHer Day 1: Boobs, S’MAC-d, Wine, & PediCabs.

I’m going old school and writing my blogher breakdown in multiple posts instead of getting to the point. I already have over 750 entries, I clearly enjoy blabbing about blah blah blah.

If you’re going to follow the story correctly, you have to know who the players are. I write, tweet and talk about Tricia and Kelly constantly because that’s what they pay me for.

I kid.

TPO does her business blogging over at http://www.thesouthernspark.com/

Tweets:  @sparkreviews

And Kelly has 2 bits of business:

her stationery (she makes all of our personalize paper stuff for the bakery!) http://www.polkadotsstationery.com/

Tweets:   @polkadotsinc

as well as her design business http://www.kippypdesigns.com/

Tweets:    @kippy_p

Advert completion. wait, no it’s not. Check out the cards Kelly made me for blogher:

   and  back …..

Side note: they would’ve been scratch and sniff but $200 was too rich for me.

Leaving for BlogHer.

I will never know if it was the sparkles or my underwire bra that gave TSA the chance to cop a feel. But she did.

and the most important meal of the day, brought to you by a natural LaraBar and a bloody Mary.

  ……or two.


We stayed at The Hilton Midtown where the conference was being held. Kelly’s man sent her (read: us) a gift of romance- (thanks, J!!) …and do you see the Great Hall of BlogHer a la scene out of The Shining? Us? LAST room on the right.

Next on the agenda? S’MAC No one in the world is more addicted to mac n’ cheese than Tricia. This is mine. Gluten free Garden Lite. To quote them:

Don’t let the “Lite” fool you – this baby is as satisfying as any of the other MACs! Lite Cheddar, Parmesan, roasted cauliflower and portobello mushrooms, roasted garlic, broccoli and scallions.


Next we bumped into a bar, The Penny Farthing because our bladders said it was time to pee, and our livers didn’t mind a bit.


Thank you to Mindstream Academy for hosting a wonderful party celebrating getting teens fit at City Winery . As a parent of 2 teenagers, I NEED wine. Lots of it.



Dinner. http://nycrg.com/cara-mia/ We ate the most delicious buffalo mozzarella stuffed chicken breast….right now I’m drooling thinking about it.


That little snip of a Broadway stage is ONCE the musical. It was absolutely incredible. We had great seats, not to mention the theatre serves wine in sippy cups so you don’t spill on yourself. Unless you’re Kelly. I’m getting her a bib after this trip.

Not too shabby of a first day. And although the only “work” related function we attended on Day 1 was wine related, that just goes to show how great the 3 of us multitask! We ended the night with a ride from Broadway to the Hilton in the pedicab and yes I video taped and NO it will not be shared.
