Delayed Re-entry

What day is it again?

*checks calendar*

Ah yes, Thursday, July 23. Time flies when you’re having fun!

This may be my most epic July ever. In fact, I don’t even have time to write an actual, well-thought-out post because I am about to get in my car and head up to Wisconsin for the day.

The last couple of weeks have been crazy and fun, crazyfun. Last weekend was the eleventh annual BlogHer conference, in New York City. I say every year that BlogHer weekends are some of my favorite weekends ever ever ever, and this year was no different. In fact, the fun of it (and being around so many of my friends all at once) practically made me forget about the blood, sweat, and tears we staff put into conference prep.

There was A LOT of this:

Momo Melisa Liz
(I stole this picture from Momo’s Facebook page. Thanks Momo!)

And a good amount of this:

Boyz II Men BlogHer15
(Yes, that’s Boyz II Men, performing at the McDonald’s Closing Party. They were even better than I thought they’d be!)

And then after a whirlwind conference I headed back to New Jersey with Liz where there was some of this:

Melisa and Liz Sandy Hook
(She loves the beach, I love the beach, we both love the beach.)

And then after two days there I stole my best friend’s middle daughter (with Liz’s blessing of course I mean REALLY) and brought her back to Chicago with me for a week, so we’re doing a lot of this:

Melisa and Heather Bean

I have a full itinerary for us this week that is all outlined in a spectacular, rainbow-colored Google doc, and we’re having a blast already. I love showing first-time visitors around Chicago, and this visit is extra special because she is extra special.

I am effectively delaying the horrible, can’t-keep-my-eyes-open post-conference time period that we all call “re-entry”, by about a week. I’m hoping that by staying busy and having fun, maybe re-entry will forget about me and next week I’ll be just as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as ever. I’ll let you know how this works for me.

Anyway, gotta go. Wisconsin is waiting!
