BlogHer Part Two Kind Of
Baby Ike, 10 Weeks

All Is Love (And Really Freaking Attractive Conference Attendees)

Okay, this is my last post about BlogHer*, I promise. After this, it's back to baby pictures and...um...kid pictures and...I don't know. Deodorants or whatever the hell.

Plus, I'll make this short, because this video pretty much says it all, and says it better:

 

Thanks so much to Ryan of Pacing the Panic Room for -- once again! -- putting together the perfect video of Sparklecorn (AKA The Party That Led Me Briefly Into a Life of Crime & Grand Theft Luggage Cart). And for making the part where I climbed on the table to take bites directly out of the butts of the unicorn cake seem a little less trashy than I think it actually probably was. 

And thanks to everyone who came to the party and danced and laughed and smiled and wore your sparkliest. I hope you had fun. 

Me? I danced my ass off and my hair flat. I can't wait for next year. WATCH YOUR BACK, LUGGAGE CARTS OF NEW YORK CITY. THE SPARKLECORN COMETH AND IT KNOWS TO DOUBLE-CHECK THAT IT'S NOT IN NEW JERSEY THIS TIME.

*Unless y'all are interested in hearing about my misadventures of traveling across the country as a nursing mother sans baby but overloaded with breast pump accessories.**

**Note that no matter what answer you technically give, I am probably going to talk about it anyway.

Adventures In Babywearing

Oh my gosh is that Ann @annsrants at the freeze frame of the video? Gorgeous! Everyone looks so beautiful. One of these years I WILL make it to BlogHer without a baby.

Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey

Aww, what an adorably-happy-warm-fuzzy-feeling video!
I'd love to go to BlogHer someday (next year in NYC, mayyyyybe?) - so keep talking about it, I don't mind! :)

PS - but bring back the baby pics, too, if you know what's good for ya! ;)

April F

that looks awesome, I so want to go someday. Watching that video I was perhaps thinking, I wish I had an equivalent word for sausage-fest, it would probably be too vulger to print.

Shelly

I could not stop smiling during that whole video. I laughed the loudest when Zack Galifianakis showed up, and the biting of the unicorn ass! You are one funny woman. Was there booze involved by chance? Or was this sober unicorn ass biting? Bahahaha

Angella

Best. Party. EVER.

(I've yet to see video of the two of us dancing on the stage and I'm a little afraid.)

Return of the Runner

Wait a second, those are professional actors dancing, right?? They're like way too amazingly attractive to be your average group of bloggers. Unless, maybe, I'm just waaaaaay out of my league! Looks like an awesome time!

Shannnon @nwaMotherlode

WANT TO GO TO BLOGHER NEXT YEAR! MUST! Awesome video and made me want to shake my groove thang. So I did.

Wiley

As someone who is looking forward to going through customs at the end of the month with pumping accessories (including a medela symphony) and no baby, I'd love to read it. I'm great at the by car trips, but long flight (including an absurdly long layover on the way back) is definitely going to make this interesting.

I have decided to just toss the milk while I'm there, so hopefully that will simplify things. (I can just see myself trying to drag six days worth of iced milk through an airport though...)

Karen

I want to hear about breast pumping madness, please! Halp! Misery loves company!

ladotyk

Holy cow, what a party. What a cake! Way to do it up right-style. That would not have looked half as cool without the glow-bracelets.

Stacia

oh i am so going to this next year.

Amalah

@Angella Look at the people on the stage in the first opening seconds a little closer...we're both there. Imma the one waving mah arms in the air like a loon.

Julie

What fun! That made me want to start a blog, just for the party. If I could actually write something than research papers, that is. Nope, hopeless. I will just have to enjoy it vicariously.

Ariel

What is that song? I'm in love with it.

SUPAHMAMA

I think maybe I need to go to this conference next year simply to say a.) I partied with sparkly unicorns, b.) I partied with sparkly lady bloggers like it was 1999 and c.) so I can have some aAaaaAAaahmazing pics taken of me so I can be all, "See? The camera doesn't hate me AFTER ALL!"

SUPAHMAMA

Plus I've never been to NYC. There is THAT as well. So d.) So I can say I've been to the big apple or whatever.

Jess F.

I just took my first overnight trip away from my nearly six month old. You haven't lived until you've pumped in an airplane bathroom...twice. Props, Amy, props.

RebD.

This totally makes me want to become a blogger just so I can attend Sparklecorn. What a fun group of hot mamas!

Wiley

Do people get impatient or fussy if you pump in the airplane bathroom? I know some people just use a breastfeeding shield and pump or hand express where they sit, but I don't think I am quite that ballsy...

Emma

Is it just me, or does everyone in that video have AMAZING hair?

Dona

This is amazing! I'm so glad you had fun.

(Also I'm envious that I've been blogging since 2001 and will never be as good as you and will never get to go to blogher.)

kim at allconsuming

so you see, this is basically why I want to come to BlogHer12.

Marilyn @ A Lot of Loves

Great video. Although I am still a little partial to Party and Bullshit. ;)

Darla

I have added Sparklecorn to my Mighty Life List. I thought Bucket List but at this stage I'm a tad young to tempt fate. The coverage from yourself, the MomaPop(spelling iPhone issues!?!) and the like showed the glorious community insanity of the group. I also loved how Ryan snuck your unicorn eating glory into the finale.
3 cheers for a great time vicariously lived through your video! Thanks for sharing!

Jess F.

@Wiley
Just let the flight attendants know what you are up to and they'll direct people away from you. They were amazingly sweet to me on both flights. I was sitting next to men both times, so I couldn't pump in my seat with a shield and they had no room for me to pump in the galley.

Emily H.

Such a great video! I second every comment that implies that you *might* have stocked your party with actresses and cocktail waitresses. Such a beautiful roomful of women obviously having the time of their lives. Your video is empowering!

Sara

did any ugly people go to BlogHer?? Man I better get a makeover if I want to go to NYC next year!

JenAHM

I want to go to there.

Seriously, is it just me or do people just look better when they're dancing in slow motion?

kellyhere

What a beautiful video! Women rule!

joc

the song is "all is love" karen O and the kids. Its on the where the wild things are soundtrack.

Jen

I want to go to there....
