Day 2 Update For You

Updated with pics!

Sorry, I haven’t updated in so long. It’s been a whirlwind. We left Kalamazoo in good time but we were sidetracked by Target! None of us had been to one before, and we were like kids in a candy store. We agreed to meet in half an hour, but an hour later we finally ended up at the check-out (three of us with identical toddler-sized pink cowboy boots, and three of us with identical skirts—even in the same colour!). And the best thing about Target? You can grab a bottle of wine on the way out!

The drive into Chicago was a little hairy but Onstar came through. Turn by turn navigation rocks. We finally got here this afternoon, checked in, stepped out for lunch and immediately ran into Rebecca and Dana. After a quick cocktail a few of us went for some sight-seeing. I love Chicago. We hit the Art Institute and the Magnificent Mile before heading back for dinner with the GM folks, where we had the most awesome dessert—a chocolate cigar! With little candy match-sticks that tasted like Popeye cigarettes!

Jana has a better picture of Sandra and I being crass with our cigars.

I met so many fab bloggers at the reception tonight. I won’t drop names too much, but I have to tell you—Redneck Mommy is super hot.

‘Kay, I’m so tired I can’t even think straight. More tomorrow.

I won't even let myself go in to a Target because it's just so fucking GREAT. I could drop some serious coin in that store....again.

I am more jealous that you got to meet Redneck Mommy than I am that you are at BlogHer.

And the reason I want a girl is for boots like those. Hmf! Boys clothes suck.

That dessert is crazy! I would think I had died and gone to to heaven. (I love Popeye cigarettes..)

Also more jealous of the gals than the conference.

Oh Target... sweet sweet Target. I only go when I'm positive I've got extra cash to cover the many things that I suddenly seem to "need" when I'm there.

Loving the photos and the updates. It's almost like we're all right there with you!

I LOVE Target and whenever I visit family in Scottsdale AZ, I try to find some great small stuff to take home. I wish they would come to Canada! In Scottsdale in May I found a FANTASTIC computer bag.

Chocolate cigars! YUM!

Pink cowboy boots? drool. Now I'm doubly sad there was no room in the van for me!

Plus, I think On Star may beat the Big Building Method of Navigation (patent pending). Although, I do get to feel all special for getting us out of the south side of Chicago without having a clue where we are or where we're going or how to get there, so there is that.
