the first of the recap posts….aka, a lot of babbling

So much to tell.

So much to say.

There are people that have names I will forget to mention….but they rocked my weekend.

There are friends from the past that reminded me how very blessed I am.

I think I got to see almost everyone I planned on.  There were a few that slipped through the busy cracks of New York.

I got to see all my Aiming Low girls.  That wasn’t so much a “Hey! It’s been too long” kind of time, it’s the kind of moment when I get to say “Thank you for saving my life.”  Then we did the Hey-late-wheee stuff.

There were were s lot of parties, gatherings, and get-togethers that I couldn’t attend.  I dragged Pete to parties only to drag him out because my ears couldn’t handle the noise.

I used to love the noise.

I want to talk about the panel.  The one with three AMAZING women who were willing to cut open veins and bleed all over the stage.  Metaphorically.  The blood, not the women.

And Pete.  He had his first blogging convention experience and it was BlogHer.  Dude.  My husband was Mick Jagger!!  Who could type.

It was great.

So much to tell.

Most of all: After strokes, a coma, in a wheelchair, not quite what I used to be….we did Blogher10.

    Anissa, seeing you was like witnessing the result of a miracle with my own eyes! It was so amazing for that reason. But most of all, I loved seeing YOU! You know… the crazy Asian chick who’s still the same sweet, funny spirit as you were before the stroke, and always will be! Your strength and beauty flow to everyone you meet, and I certainly felt a part of it when I hugged you, girl!

    I so wish I was at BlogHer this year, because I SO wanted to meet YOU. Glad you had a wonderful time, despite all that noise! :o )

    it was soooo good to finally meet you and give you a big hug. xo!

  8. ThePeachy1 August 9, 2010 at 2:09 PM #

    You did NYC right. I am sure the big apple was a little bit more shiny because you were there. As far as Pete. I am totally waiting on pics of this for proof he wasn’t unconscious.

  9. Ellen August 9, 2010 at 1:09 PM #

    Those parties were kinda overrated, I had a much better time meeting you and other bloggers out in the hallway. Though somehow, I did not see your bewbs or get to talk with them. Thanks for keeping it light at the grief panel. I figured I’d cry but as always, you made me smile. And, yeah, Peter is all sorts of awesome.

    Loved, loved, loved getting to steal you away for a while. (And a big thank you to Peter for letting us!) You were awesome. Hope I get to see you again soon. xoxo

    I didn’t get to meet you personally this weekend – but I watched as you were surrounded by love. Next time, I’ll be sure to make my presence be known. But like today, delurking as I am, know that there are MORE than you could even know that support you & your family in thoughts, prayers and love in person and from afar.

    Oh yes and I concur – Peter rocks the house as well, as he should. A rock star wife needs a rock star husband.

  12. Scary Mommy August 9, 2010 at 12:32 PM #

    You were amazing, are amazing and forever will be amazing. But, next time? I want more of you.

    I gotta say, it was great to meet Peter. I can’t even imagine what that conference looked like to him. Talk about an official welcome to blogging!

    And, you. You held court like a queen. I am sorry I planted so many kisses on your face. No I’m not.

    Love you.

    Seeing your beautiful face? Meeting Peter? Touching the evidence of your heart, soul and strength? Pure heaven and most definitely a highlight. I can’t get enough of you.

  30. Rachel August 8, 2010 at 10:16 PM #

    Honestly, Gd is good.

    I don’t think they could of had BlogHer without you, so thanks for saving the blogosphere. :)
