Wine, Women and one Incredible Baby Soothing Machine

Three years ago I didn't even know what a blog was until this woman decided to write an insanely funny book that lead me to her blog.

A year ago I never would have believed that I would belong to such a great group of writers who continually inspire and amaze me. There I was last night at the Le Chat Noir talking to marketing people from Graco about their new product, sweetpeace (which I must say is quite possibly one of the coolest baby products I've seen to date. Hello! Graco! If I get knocked up this year can I review one?!) and surrounded by incredibly fun, smart and driven women who do the same thing as me and more.

I love being able to talk shop without having to explain a million bloggy things and share experiences, tips, talk about Thayer St. and new ventures. I always learn so much. So I have to say that without a doubt, last night was a success and a whole lot of fun. A big THANK YOU to Joanne (who is so cute and petite and doesn't look at all like her crayon drawing and who I'm so in awe of that I didn't actually talk to, envision Vicky smacking herself in the head a la Chris Farley) and the hilariousDevra for organizing it all and allowing me the opportunity to see the awesome Golden Globe trottin'Kristen again, meet Sarah, Jean, Susan, pink hairedSusie, Jim, Kimberley (a fellow transformed blond herself), there are so many others like Sandie who actually got to take home the sweetpeace because she is in fact ready to pop soon, Robin a fellow N.E.'er who won a trip to NYC for a day and all the other wonderful women I met last night.

It was a blast! I won a trip too, which others volunteered themselves as my plus one, if H decides to forgo it. I never win anything either and now I have a new book and slippers to boot. A year ago I never saw this coming.

Did someone mention a bloggy sleepover?

You want to see pictures of the event? Go here. I'm in the striped sweater forever emphasizing random unimportant points with my overly long hands.

  10. Hey Vicky- thanks so much for hanging with me all night- I had a great time talking to you and you gave me new hope for a sweater I thought was long gone... I've enjoyed reading your blog- honestly I read it a while back and didn't put two and two together on Monday and now going back in I realized your posts were the ones that made me spit out my water! (plus the priceless shot of the VP!!)
