Why I wanted to go ... Part II.

So, a final post about Type A Conference. I mean, I could go on and on and on. And I have. And I could keep going. But I won't. For now, anyway. But here's a recap of what was most important to me. The PEOPLE. See some of them below, and check out my Who I Met at Type A Twitter list for more!

If you haven't read Part I about why I wanted to go, check it out
here. It's a focus on one important aspect of the conference for me. Which I continue with here.

I wanted to go to meet all the incredible people I talk with every day. And some of the newer friends I was only just connecting with. AND even better, the new friends I made AT the conference, the ones I talk with more often now than I'd expect!


So, here are a few pictures of some fun and incredible peeps. Find them on Twitter and get to know them, their blogs, who they are -- because I said so. And because they rock!


@blueviolet - - As wonderful and sweet IRL as she is online. She also made sure that my roomie and I added stat counters to our blog for future use. And told me I could make mine invisible. Perfection.


@mommybknowsbest - - I am so lucky to have met her as randomly as we did. I may have inadvertently spent the rest of the conference stalking her on accident. I swear.



@highimpactmom -- Little did I know I had "met" her via email before the weekend. I had the luck of connecting with her as she did her magic coordinating the volunteers to help make this conference a flawlessly executed event!


@CatalinainLA -- I am so glad I stayed out a bit for that last patio party!
Otherwise I would have never met and connected as well as I did with Catalina! She didn't even flinch when I asked her where she lives. Duh!




Of course I also got to hang out with some of my more local NC peeps.

Like my four carpooling buddies and the lovely Frelle ...

@adventuroo (not sure what happened to my border there ...)

So overall the conference was a huge success for me on a personal level. But you must know that already. It was just important for me to re-state it for you all so you know how important the PEOPLE are. The people make it what it is. Whether they are pictured here or not (mostly not because I didn't get to stalk them enough for a photo opp!) they are awesome-sauce. And you know how much it pains me to use the word awesome. I'm not a big fan of the sauce, either. But whatever works.

Thanks so much Kelby (@typeamom) and the entire Type A Con crew. It was an amazing time and I look forward to returning again next year!

p.s. I promise I wore more than one outfit. I think most of these pictures were taken on the last night - when it hit me how few pics I'd taken and how many people I wanted to "capture" with my camera.

It was so much fun- I'm so awful at taking pics. I never realize how few I'm taking until I'm back home!

How AWESOME :) I love that word, as you may have figured out by now! Love that you got to meet so many blog buddies. You or @blueviolet will have to let me know about stat counters...since I'm pretty oblivious to anything technology related.

(If I was heading your way any time soon, I would bring you some zucchini!)
