Some BlogHer Favorites

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

I have a lot to say this year about BlogHer in general and private parties/swag in specific, but I’m still processing. I’m also still quite tired. I got off pretty easy during the #BlogHerTarmac fiasco of weather causing flight delays all over for people trying to get home. Early on, I tried putting a more positive spin on things with #tarmacparty, but clearly that didn’t catch on because, well you know… bloggers. I only had a 2 hour on plane delay and got home the same day as scheduled, so that was good enough for me. Also, I can’t say enough nice things about the amazing patience and fortitude of the Virgin America cabin crew.*

I thought I would just hit some highlights:

Favorite panel: iPhoneography

Favorite heartwarming moment: the BlogHer co-founder’s hug after Obama’s opening remarks to the conference (via video)

Favorite party for meeting people and actually talking to them: Queerosphere

Favorite dance party: Sparklecorn (no unicorns were harmed in the making of that statement. Or cakes.)

Favorite cocktail: Bloody Mary at abcKitchen (brunch with my sister on Sunday), close second the Kentuckian at Blue Fin

Best Food at a BlogHer party: Social Fiesta

Best Touristy thing: HighLine/the Boathouse at Central Park (tie)

People always talk about freebies this and swag that, but Spencer’s hands down favorite thing I brought home from the conference is the $5 plastic taxi I bought him after the food tour of Chelsea Market.

And because no list is complete without a worst, I would hazard a guess that the drinks in the Lobby Lounge at the Hilton might in fact be the worst drinks in all of Midtown, if not all of New York City. Or maybe even THE WORLD.

Wordless Wednesday: On a Jet Plane

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

I’m back from BlogHer12. Whoa. What. A. Weekend. I came away with some pretty mixed feelings and think it’s best to allow a bit more time before commiting my opinions to the internet forever. That said, I flew in the same seat (20F!) going there and coming back and took some fun pictures out of the window.

This is from being stuck on the ground for two hours:

And these are from the air:

I’ll be visiting everyone who links or comments this week to make up for some previous slacking, so link up your wordless wednesday posts below.


P366: July 29th – August 5th

Monday, August 6th, 2012

I went to pull the photos for this and about died when I realized that this last week started the day after Spencer’s party. That seems so far away. This is the BlogHer12 edition, but I will be posting more photos from the conference later. I try and keep this post to one per day. I will also probably be just putting up some photos on my blog facebook page, so if you want to see those too, be sure and like the babybabylemon facebook page.


Spencer got silver play doh for his birthday – It’s pretty cool.


Learning to snap green beans.

I liked Virgin America. I LOVED Olympics on the plane.

My BlogHer was fueled by Diet Coke.

Spencer had a great birthday and a great Team UmiZoomi party! I’m off to BlogHer in NYC so might not be visiting much around the linky this week, but I would love it if you linked up and visited each other.  Hope to have some great shots from a rooftop sunset (ish) party in NYC for next week. And if you are going to BlogHer, don’t forget bebehblog’s photo challenge.

Have a great week!
