Blogher Mode, Purse Remorse and a Tourist In My Own City

image

I’m in straight Blogher mode. Between fitting in my clients, getting last minute things and making sure the house is in order, Blogher here I come!

We went shopping last week and I was looking for a Vera Bradley bag to carry my ‘easy to get to’ essentials.  Then I remembered my Franklin Covey bag that I’ve barely used.  It has more than enough pockets and compartments to carry an entire office if I wish.  I’ll look for a Vera Bradley when I’m not feeling pressed and I find the print that I think I can’t live without. 

I have a purse in my closet now (many purses) that I may have carried twice. Still sitting in the dust bag and I don’t carry it because I made the wrong choice of color and design. 

Nevertheless, I’m so excited about Blogher. I started getting my bags packed and mapping out all the details.  Speaking of mapping out all the details…. I’ve lived in Chicago all my life and when it comes to downtown, I feel like a tourist in my own city.  Of course we haven’t lived in the city for nearly 10 years, but I’m praying I don’t get lost

School’s out, registration and Blogher13

image

Yesterday morning I picked my daughter up from the airport.  School is officially out.  They have mandatory summer school which means all athletes have to attend the first session of summer school.

I thought she hadn’t been home for 6 months, but she reminded me that she did come home for spring break.  How did I forget that? But as of late, I’m forgetting how old I am -__-.  I think when we you reach a certain age and you’re not asked daily, “How old are you?” We begin to forget.  Well, that’s what’s been going on with me.

The next few weeks I will be on a mission, registering the kids for school and getting ready for Blogher13.  I have my checklists by my side and knocking things off task by task. 

Last week I went to JCPenney to pick up some new outfits for Blogher. Still a few more things to pick up and I’m all good.  I also wrote down 2 goals/objectives that I want to accomplish from attending Blogher13.

1.Training: I’ve mapped and written out my schedule and classes I’m taking. I’d hate to come home after this event is over and have nothing to apply to my blogging endeavors. 

2. Relationships: getting to meet some of the bloggers I’ve followed and read for so long is going to be so exciting.  As well as meeting bloggers that I may not have encountered their blog before will definitely be refreshing. 

Anything else that comes out of it, is a perk. A little something…something extra. 

What are you plans for the next few weeks? Will you be attending Blogher13 and if so, have you written any goals that you want to achieve this year from attending?
