This BlogHer feels so different than the others – because there is LIGHT! The main atrium where our meals are is light and bright and I even think the air conditioning MAY be slightly warmer than usual too! I’ve only had to put on my sweater twice when in the session rooms : )
I spent the morning at the Expo, which is my favorite part of the weekend, and where you get tons of freebies!! It’s total brand overload – PR peeps and company heads just dying to tell you why their brand is fabulous – but since I come prepared for that, I just roll with it and enjoy myself.
BlogPup! Cutest face ever!
At the Expo there was everything from Lowes home building to chocolate to TIDE to vibrators and menstruation products!

Highlights: A rest on a Tempurpedic bed and a bite of Lindt sea salt chocolate!
Lunch was quite good – because I was bombarded with veggies + desserts – my favs!
On the menu was salad, rolls, chicken, steal something, pasta, rice pilaf, grilled veggies and desserts.
Rather standard conference fare, but I loved the "build your own" salad at the Vegan table!
I piled my plate with veggies and accented with some pasta, a small piece of chicken (obviously not the best source, but I wanted a little protein), a roll and a vegan peach cobbler.
Midway through lunch – a flash mob appeared!! It was exciting and impressive! I love flash mobs.
I enjoyed lunch with the crazy + fabulous Healthy Apple, Amie Valpone [who is in the process of launching a major online magazine on gluten-free eats called Easy Eats!] plus a collection of foodies: Tess of Healthy Blender Recipes, Erika of Toque Magazine, Jayne of Married to a Military Meat-Eating Man, and Jennifer of 84th and 3rd (and more!)
There is so much cool stuff going on online – makes me want to live in The Matrix!!
I’m in a session now on photography – then, who knows!?
