We are making preparations to travel to Las Vegas next week to attend Blog World Expo. Looking forward to running into some old friends, and making new ones – – if you are planning on being there, please let me know! Would love to catch up with you and shake your hand, or share some words over coffee! Chris and I are looking forward to it. We’re staying at the MGM Grand – so hopefully I’ll be able to hang on to my hard earned money while I’m there (cha ching!).
Chris and I fly outta here on Thursday, Sept 18 and are in Vegas until Sunday, Sept. 21.
On Sunday, we fly from Vegas to Los Angeles, CA to attend a conference for his business, Interact2008 in Marina del Rey. Chris’s company, Mosaic Consulting is one of the main sponsors of the event – and we’re pretty excited about that.
It’ll be quite a difference! The BlogWorld Expo conference in Vegas is very causal, where the conference in California is very business-like during the day, and cocktail parties and galas in the evenings. Followed by the very very casual vacation time in San Diego — this will be a challenging trip to pack for! I have problems packing, normally…. with this trip, it’ll be a mish mash of shorts, jeans, flip flops, sneakers, strappy heels, cocktail dresses, business casual and everything in between. I hope the airline doesn’t charge me too much for the extra baggage weight!
We’ll be in Marina del Rey until Thursday, Sept. 25 – that’s when we rent a car and make the drive down to San Diego where it’s alllllllllllll personal vacation from there – – well, at least until Sunday, Sept 28th, when we’ll be flying back to Milwaukee and headed back to the reality of every day living. While in San Diego, we’re going to relax and spend a few days visiting the San Diego Zoo and the Wild Animal Park. I just adore the San Diego Zoo and can’t wait to revisit it again this month.
It’ll be good for me to get away for a piece of time, really. Things have been so entirely hectic around here lately that I need to step back and do a little relaxing ‘me’ stuff! The next trip I have planned isn’t until March – when I’ll be attending the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin Texas. I have some really exciting things brewing for my trip to SXSW and will be making an announcement here in the near future about it all – – I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Not sure I’ll be posting here until we get back from our trip – – so have a GREAT weekend! I’ll be sure to have some great photos to share of my experience at BlogWorld, Interact2008 and the Zoo.
