Oh yeah—today is the B.I.G. day! MyBrownBaby is climbing in the Chevy and hitching a ride to BlogHer with none other than Lorraine of Ask Wifey and Christie of A Work In Progress, the dynamic duo behind The Blogrollers, along with their fourth wheel contest winner, Jennifer of The Baby Makin(g) Machine.
The four of us met up last night for our "BlogHer or Bust Road Trip Bon Voyage Party" at Blue Moon Pizza in Vinings, where we quickly commenced to gabbing, laughing, imbibing BlogRoller-tinis, plotting and planning how we'll keep ourselves entertained on our five-day road trip to Chicago, and—oh yeah!—checking out our incredible ride...
Yup, we'll be rolling in this beautiful Chevy Traverse, courtesy of GM and the BlogHer Carpools. Sexy, ain't it? It's a seven-seater with all the bells and whistles—lots of room (we gotta fit all those bags full of cute clothes somewhere), satellite radio (so we can listen to lots of neo-soul, hip hop, old school, and R&B goodies), a GPS system (so that those of us who happen to be, ahem, directionally challenged, can get to where we're going), and a video player (I'm bringing Love & Basketball, Dave Chappelle's Season 2, School Daze, The Five Heartbeats, Coming to America, and John Legend: Live in Concert).
Later today, we're going to stop in Louisville, Kentucky for a spa party and dinner, and after a good night's rest, we'll hit the road again on Thursday, headed for The Sheraton in Chicago, site of this year's BlogHer conference. Our dance cards are full; along with all of the fantastic programming BlogHer has planned, there'll be some awesome partying going on. If you're at BlogHer this year, you'll find MyBrownBaby at the Lush Experience, hosted by the ladies of Blogalicious; the Nikon Night Out at Flatwater; the Disney Mom Bloggers Reunion at the MomSelect Swag Suite; and at the BlogHer book store on Saturday, July 25, signing copies of "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man," from 4:15-4:45 pm.
Otherwise, you can find me in the lobby, talking smack, meeting up with my bloggy buddies, and making lots of new friends. I can't wait to see you there, and to spill all the juicy details about my road trip with The Blogrollers.
It's. About. To. Go. Down.
