Here Comes Trouble - Women, The Big Easy and the Ability to Blog Oh My!

5:03 PM

I am off to the Bloggers on Bourbon (The street not the drink lol) conference tomorrow morning. The event has been sold out for a while now, but I saw a last minute opening and jumped at the chance to spend the weekend in New Orleans with these wonderful ladies. So today, I have been running around like a mad women with a 4 year old, trying to buy the things I need and get my hair cut.

Did you know that before today I didn't even own a dress? Well I bought one, but didn't sit down when I tried it on and don't like the way it looks now when I sit, so it will probably go back tonight. I bought a pair of shoes at Goodwill, got home and found out they are two different sizes! I am batting 0 for 3 here people!

No matter what goes down in the shopping word this evening, I will be on the road tomorrow at 6am to drop the kids at my moms so I can have my first real break in almost 9 years. I wonder how much trouble a bunch of women bloggers in The Big Easy with access to alcohol can get into? Not much right? Don't worry, I will blog it all.

Special thanks go out to Harrah's Casino,, Earth Footwear, Global Resort Homes, Houmas House, Collective Bias, Open Sky Project and the many other great sponsors who have made BOBNOLA possible!
