I can hardly believe it – BlogHer 2010 is upon us and it feels like I’ve only blinked since last year. I’m fortunate to be attending, for the second year in a row, as one of the Walmart Moms – and I’ve got a crazy schedule yet again, although I’m insanely excited. Last year I was exhausted but excited to be a part of all of the chaos – and even though I swore that I wouldn’t do that to myself yet again this year – I think I just might have.
If you are going to be at BlogHer I absolutely want to meet you. Please come say hi, and we can do the girly thing where we squeal, hug, then jump up and down while holding hands. If you’re more low-key than that, I am equally skilled at the cordial handshake and warm smile – so don’t let my southern affection scare you off! With that said, I figured the easiest thing to do was to post my schedule so you could see where to find me – so here we go:

Thanks to Walmart for sending me to BlogHer this year – and to my amazing Wine In The City co-hosts for making this year’s BlogHer one that I know I won’t forget!
