SNAP! Conference = Paper Bag Breathing

It's official: I am the Queen of Ultimate Last Minutes. Yesterday, with something like 5 tickets remaining for next month's SNAP! conference in Utah, I decided it was time to snap! one up (rimshot).

 What can I say... I like to live dangerously. Or maybe I just can't make up my mind without a scary deadline. Either way, it's done. Are you going? Pleeeease look for me there, because I am secretly a big socially awkward nerd who is terrified of going to large gatherings where I know no one.

So much for secrets.

I'll probably be the one against a wall pretending to text so I don't look awkward, when in reality it will make me look even more nerdy and desperate. Ack! What do I do?? Be sure to call me on it if you see me texting.  (which you actually won't see me doing, because my phone's touch screen up and died on me but I'm not eligible to upgrade until May so I'm using a decade-old flip phone until then and it stays inside my purse at all times even when I'm texting because of my technology shame factor of 10 and my run on sentence shame factor of at least a 7.8)

I'll actually be the one against a wall breathing into a paper lunch sack.

So now I need to track down a place to stay. I wonder if the people renting my Salt Lake-area home will let me pitch a tent in their/my yard? Ha.

And do I need to make cards? 

Will someone who has any idea what they're doing please step in and become my temporary life-blog-conference coach?

I should probably not pack 4 pairs of yoga pants, right?

Look at me moving out of my comfort zone. I'm excited! Gold star sticker.

  2. I'm won't be Snap!-ing but I will be Blogher-ing in NYC in August and you have perfectly expressed my own excitement, inner turmoil and secret social ackwardness!

    Have a FAB time Snap!-ing! But spring for a hotel - you certainly deserve better then a pup tent when you're a Mom on the loose!

  3. I'm so excited your coming! I'll be there as well. I would offer a place in my apartment but I think you'd rather not stay there.

    See you in a few weeks!

  5. I found your blog by doing a search for SNAP Conference because I too, am freakin out a bit because I literally just bought my ticket off of someone who couldn't go. I bought it, without a plan or even a thought because I was like, I'm gonna do it! Okay, now what?! If you want, I will keep you company on the wall ;). And what's sad is this is my 6th conference, how the heck do I still feel like a girl starting JR High at a school where she knows no one?!

    As for cards, it's almost a must at conferences because that is how people can connect with you after the conference. Of course I started my blog 6 months ago and haven't made any so I guess I need to get on that.
