Meet So Many More

12) Shash of Diary of a Crazed Mommy and Sam of Temporarily Me Dot Com:  Shash, it was so great to see you again.  Can’t wait to see you at TAMC.  Sam, it was a pleasure to finally meet you..and hug you..and find out just how beautiful you are!

13) Karl of Secondhand Tryptophan and Drew of Eden Fantasys: Karl, you da man.  Next time, though, you have to make that chronic call.  Drew, you know how I feel about you, bro!  Thanks for the Caprese Salad.  Lunch that day was a million levels of awesome.

19) Bridget of The Ivey League, Cindy from City Streams, and Kellie from Mom Ran Out Screaming:  Bridget, loved seeing you again since our initial Yanni-bonding experience.  He’s still a jerk for not meeting us.  You, though? You are a doll.   Cindy,  that post you wrote with that picture of me is my favorite of them all!  Kellie, it was so nice to talk to you, even if for a few minutes.

23) Matt of Child’s Play x2 and Miss Grace of Miss Grace’s Disgrace:   Matt, I enjoyed you so much on the Vaginally Challenged panel that I have started reading your blog.  That’s what this was about, right?  Meeting and finding new people to get to know!  Miss Grace,  I feel like you are an old soul.  Your eyes are deep and your hugs are tight.  You are good people to have in the heart;  glad you are in mine.

24) Sugar Jones or  The first thing I ever said to you was, “OMG, Sugar Jones? Where’s the hat?” and you held up your name tag.  Best. Picture.   Then we fell in oodles of love, right?

25) Megan Jordan of Velveteen Mind:  YOU are the one person I didn’t spend hardly enough time with.  I wanted to do some pictures of you, but didn’t realize how hard it would really be.  I guess I’ll have to drive down to you and take pictures of the Bambina.  The Bambina! SQUEEEEEEE!

26) Weaslemomma of World of Weasles:   I’ll never get the image of you tackling Busy Dad!  That was priceless.  You are priceless!

27) Miss of Just Miss & Nicole of Red Lotus Mama (and Karen MEG again):  Miss, what a smile you have.  It captivates.  It moves.  It makes you feel love.  I’m so glad that we met; I only wish we had more time together.   Nicole:  I feel  like I know you two so well from blog reading, but the same holds true…we didn’t get to spend enough time together.
You’re both stellar in my eyes!

28) Lucrecer of Art Slam and Amy of Amy in Ohio: LU!  You don’t know if you are going to find people you want to find at an event like BlogHer. I worried about if I would meet you and then I saw you, right away, in the lobby.  That is kizmet!  Amy, our conversation, at the Nikon party, deepest conversation I had the entire time.  And, while I was tipsy I still remember it.  Mad love to you, friend!

31) Celeste of Average Jane:   It was a pleasure to sit next to you at the West Egg my first morning in Chicago.  You were among some of the first “new people” that I met at BlogHer.  That was awesome because I think I saw you–in passing–a handful of times after that.  And it was nice to say, “Oh hi, Celeste!”

32) Melisa (with one S and no bacon) of Suburban Scrawl:  Sometimes you just meet someone that you just click with and know that you can throw down a bacon joke, or a million, and they’ll still love you.  That’s you.  Here’s to non-offensive bacon jokes for the rest of our friendship!    And thanks again for the Remembering Ruby book.  It’s a wonderful, wonderful book, dear.

33) Carole Hicks of OH! Social:  Hottest. Lady. At. BowlHer. For. Realz.

34) Michael of Father Muskrat:  I will be honest that I didn’t know you before BlogHer.  I’m glad you BlogHim’d it and came.  Meeting you was most excellent and I’m loving your blog.

35) Amy of Running with the Outdoor Dogs:  Seeing your smile just fills me up, yo!

36) Sheila of Charm School Reject and Karen Sugarpants of Craftastrophe:  Loved having lunch with you both.  Sheila, you are a doll.  Karen, I can’t believe I didn’t know it was YOU!  You just rock, girl.

37) Danielle of Knotty Yarn:  I soooooooooooooo loved your Keynote speech.  I knew you would be a great new blogger to watch.  And then I got to have a conversation with you!   Talk about fulfillment?  I look forward to all your funny stories and awesomeness.  Won’t be taking my eyes off you, for sure.

38) BHJ of The Notorious BHJ & Neil Kramer of Citizen of the Month:  I kissed Black Hockey Jesus.  ‘Nuff said.  No, really, every time I saw you or heard you it was awesome.  You scared us with TWIYV going away; thank God The Notorious BHJ came back.  Neil, I wish we could’ve talked more than a few minutes on the way to the elevators.  Just know that I’ll keep my specs on (even though they are new ones now), in my Twitter avatar, just for you!

39) Amy Lupold Bair of The Resourseful Mommy:  I’m so glad I spotted you when I did. I missed so many people.  Glad you weren’t one of them.

40) Loralee of Loralee Looney Tunes:  Holy Aura of Goodness and Light, Batman.  You shine, woman!  I’m so glad I had a few chances to “hang” with you.

41) Georgia of I am Bossy:   Larger than life and. I. hugged. you!!!  I am definitely signing up for the next roadtrip.  I have a trundle bed with your name on it, too!!!

42) Shawn of Backpacking Dad:   I’m sorry if I stared at you, Shawn.  But you are gorgeous.

43) Haley-O of Cheaty Monkey:  You are the sweetest girl ever.  And the greatest keeper of Crocs.  I look forward to talking with you more, in the near future, about nutrition and such.

44) Ree of The Pioneer Woman and Me:  I still find it hard to believe that I met The. Niftiest. Pioneer. Woman. In. The. World.

45) Cassie of Cassie Boorn:  Any friend of Alli Worthington is definitely a friend of mine!

46, 47, 48, \infty) You, you, you, and \infty:  I shook your hand, introduced myself, or smiled at you in the elevator.  I waved at you from across the room or sloshed back drinks with you at various parties.  I hugged you, I kissed you or squealed like a schoolgirl when I was in your midst.  I talked with you in front of the elevators and told you how much fun I was having.  I giggled from the bathroom stall about not having any toilet paper to wipe with, and you gave me some from underneath saying we all need T.P. for our bungholes.   I showed you pictures of my little boy on my cellphone and you showed me pictures of your brood, too.   You were there and I was with you and we had a blast.  I laughed with you, from the sidelines, when mobs formed for swag bags.   I bummed too many cigarettes from you.  I helped you fix the back of your dress.  You picked feathers off my sweater.  You held my camera for a second while I got a drink.  You.  Me.  Us.  We ARE BlogHer09.  We are more than just BlogHer09.  We are meant to make a difference.  You. Me. Us.  We are.

Tomorrow I will introduce you to just one more person I met at BlogHer this year!

    This is the best BlogHer09 recap that’s been written. Look how happy we all were! It was amazing, wasn’t it?

  3. I’m so happy to have made your “meet” series. (And also glad you kept that photo small and made it b&w so that folks won’t see the spaz-ass look on my face. WTH?)

  4. 08.18.2009

    I love you so damned much. You’re awesome. And I’m glad I know you.

  5. 08.18.2009

    WOW….. you met so many people. I want to be just like you next year.

  6. 08.18.2009

    This is probably my favorite BlogHer listing of all time. BEAUTIFUL work and words from a BEAUTIFUL lady! xoxoxoxo!

  7. 08.18.2009

    Even though we were together so much it feels like we didn’t really have the opportunity to chat that much. You’re amazing, talented and so funny. I didn’t think it was possible to love you more!


  8. 08.18.2009

    I love this way of recapping BlogHer. Nicely done.

  9. 08.18.2009

    This is such a great recap! I enjoyed it so much! And the fact that you read my blog now makes me feel all gooey inside. And I did get to meet so many wonderful people like you. Let’s do it again!

  10. 08.18.2009

    Glad to have met you, too, and I enjoy the recap. We need to get Chicago-style pizza together every week!

  11. 08.18.2009

    I am truly flattered to have made your list! And am now realizing that my profile isn’t very flattering…wow.

  12. 08.18.2009


    You are a gem. I’m not just saying that because you taught me the magic of the glass dildo one day long ago…

  13. 08.18.2009

    Look at us! That photo safari was one of the highlights of my trip. Thanks for hanging with me, I had a blast too. This series has been one of my all time favs of yours, getting to ‘meet’ so many wonderful bloggers, or getting to know them better. Nicely done!

  14. 08.19.2009

    No, girl, you’ve got it all wrong– I was LUCKY to hang out with you & Tara. It was the best moment of my trip (aside from getting the job! hah!) It was so wonderful to get to know the “secret agent mama” that I have been lurking & reading from afar for so long. You are incredible. I hope we can hang again someday.

  15. 08.19.2009

    I am soooo honored to have made the montage. This is so beautiful. P.S. That is my dad’s caddy. I drive a way cooler car. A minivan ;)

  16. You make it sound like we were outside the Sheraton making out. I mean, not that I care…I’m just sayin’. :0

  17. 08.20.2009

    I didn’t want to say. Might make people jeeeeeeeeeelooooooooose!

  18. 08.20.2009

    Daddy’s Caddy! I love that you came to BH styling!

  19. 08.20.2009

    I usually have good camera radar, gotta work on that #blogherfail. I could learn a thing or two from you. I won’t make that mistake next time:)

  20. 08.20.2009

    I have loved this entire series and you and I are alike in so many ways. I am so happy to know you and lady YOU are something special!

  21. 08.21.2009

    Awesome photo collage. I met some amazing people, too, and looking at all these photos brings back the love.

    I only regret that I am not included — because that would’ve meant that we met each other. Next year!

  22. 08.22.2009

    And old friend for sure…the feeling was more than mutual, sweetie.
    And breaking the bread thing… will have to happen next time we see each other, ‘kay?

    Luvs ya, and love how you did this post. Gorgeous collage!

  23. 08.23.2009

    It was great to meet you. You are so much fun and felt like I had always known you.

  24. Love you, love you, love you.

  25. 08.24.2009

    NO! YOU are the sweetest! How did you snap that picture? You cheaty little…. ;) I’m WORKING hard on nutrition research right now — finding some KEY peeps in the veg-based world. We will chat on skype IM SOON — like end of the week, or when I get back from cottage trip next week. Promise.

  26. 08.24.2009

    Such a fun fun time.

  27. 08.25.2009

    I was thrilled to be eating lunch with you, talented lady! So much so, I was in awe, watching you take photos and barely able to speak. I admire you so very much and I’m glad to know you.

  28. 08.25.2009

    you rock mishi. you just do.

  29. 08.26.2009

    You are so awesome Mish – it is one of my great regrets of the whole conference that I didn’t actually hang with you. My door in Don Mills is always open…

  30. 08.31.2009

    I know I am sooooo lame for taking so long to comment on this, but, It was very sweet of you to mention me (especially since all you can see is the rats nest I passed off for hair that day. Travel hair. Oy!) Anyway, our brief conversation only left me wanting more. You are a lovely person with a very magnetic personality. It was so my pleasure to meet you. Thanks again. Kellie

  31. 09.01.2009

    I love you lady!

  32. 09.28.2009

    Sweetie. I love this. For some reason, my wordpress never told me I was linked here. And, for some reason I missed it. must have been one of those weeks when I avoided my reader.
    Love you!
