BlogHer10 Highlights even in Low Lighting (part 1)

Last week I hopped on the #smores train to Blogher and got my groove on in NYC. Here are just some highlights from the trip:

30 Rock Center - I got to visit with my friend Mark who is moving out of NYC and do something fun and touristy! We went to the top of 30 Rockefeller Center and caught a beautiful view of New York.

The next morning was the start of the conference and Bruce Jenner was there with Tropicana. I nabbed a quick interview with him and got some great advice on....raising daughters! Yes, the Kardashian sisters are a handful but Bruce is a survivor. More to come in another post on that.

The one off-site event that I was most excited for was Getting Gorgeous. Hosts Audrey McCLelland and Vera Sweeney threw quite a swag bash with lots of help from their family and sponsors. One highlight was meeting makeup and hair stylist to the stars, Kim Baker at the elf booth. She said Tom Cruise is the NICEST guy. And she made my eyes look, well, gorgeous!

Me, my eyes, and the fabulous Kim Baker

It was a great weekend to reconnect with the friends I've made at past conference, and to make new friends. More to come!

Making S'mores, Making Memories

 

We have a fire pit that I fell in love with for several reasons:

1. I LOVE to make s'mores. Fire to me (whether in the fireplace or camping) means s'mores. I ALWAYS have  I prefer Hershey's Special Dark but The Twofer go for the classic

and

on hand and if you think I'm saying that just for this post....feel free to check with The Mister.

2. Sitting around a fire pit on a Friday night means we actually TALK to each other. We tell scary stories, we look for shooting stars, we catch up. And before we know it it's bedtime we have spent quality time with each other and without TV or computers.

3. Fire means gathering. We kicked off the summer with a S'mores party and invited some neighbors over to join us. Everyone brought their drink of choice and a sweatshirt (oh what I wouldn't give for a chilly night!) and we supplied all the s'mores fixings...including wet paper towels for littles sticky fingers.

The girls are already planning the next one!

They still talk about running around the backyard with their friends and their flashlights, chocolate smeared over their faces and goopy marshmallows dripping off their fingers. It's a memory they will cherish.

Just as I cherish the memories we make around that fire pit.

What's your s'mores memory? Head on over to THIS POST and leave a comment for a chance to win some Hershey's swag!
