When I first heard about the Southern Bloggers' Conference, I sent an email to one of the coordinators, Suzy, from the blog "Worthing Court". I teasingly asked if a 'Yankee' girl might crash the conference.
I was kidding at that point. The happy response I received back made me think about it seriously. Then I saw the hotel where the conference is being held, The Embassy Suites- Crabtree Valley, and next thing I knew I was registered, booked my room and my airline tickets.

I am looking to escape for a couple of days, and have a chance to learn more about blogging, meet vendors and hear about new products of interest to many of us, receive my "swag bag" (The TSA will not get their hands on any of my goodies, I will have them shipped home to me!), AND, most importantly, have the blessed opportunity to meet some of my favorite bloggers!
I have not flown in nine years, so I am more than a little nervous about that. I thought I would have incentive to lose weight, didn't happen (I still have a month!), and finally arranged for the birdies' baby sitter (phew). I am looking forward to this, I actually think I need to do this. Kind of like stepping out of my "comfort zone".
