I'm Going to BlogSugar!

You now that feeling you get on Christmas Eve? The excitement and anticipation? You don't know exactly what to expect but you know it's going to be great?!
That's how I feel about Blog Sugar!!
I really still can't believe I'm going. I saw the button on Rachel's blog back in April and clicked on it. Within 5 minutes I had purchased my ticket. Whaaaat? I don't do things like that. And I definitely don't do them without talking to hubby first so he can tell me if I'm crazy or not.

The conversation went something like this...

Me: "I'm gonna go to a conference for Christian women bloggers in September. What do you think...I already bought my ticket...but I won't go if you don't think I should."

Hubby: "What is that, I mean what will you do there?"

Me: "I'm not really sure but I just feel like I need to go."

Hubby: "Ok, that sounds great!"

See? He could have told me I was crazy and if I remember correctly his tone kinda did say I was crazy, but whatever.

I felt such a leading to go. I wanted to be a part of this amazing event with these amazing women.
My first thought was "I must go and soak up every ounce of knowledge these women have!" I admire so many of the lovely ladies speaking and read their blogs all the time. {I promise not to bring my Minnie Mouse autograph book}.

What God has done since I bought my ticket is what I am so thankful for. I have started to build relationships with some inspirational women who I admire very much. I can't wait to spend time with them face to face. I can't wait to have coffee, lunch....laugh...probably cry. Whatever it is I know it will be amazing. Spending time with and learning from women who's goal is to serve the Lord and bless others? What could be better?

See you in September!

Your husbands response was exactly like my husband's! :) He was so encouraging about it, and now he keeps on me about booking a hotel room because he thinks I'll back out. I will NOT back out. I'm so excited! See you in September!
