The most asked question of Michele and I during the conference: 

Stranger: "Are you two sisters?"
Me: (insert confused look)
Michele: (not skipping a beat) "Yes. Doesn't my older sister look great for her age?"

Thanks to these fabulous bloggers and writers 
I was so happy to meet face-to-face in Chicago:

Optimus Prime

A special thanks to my darling roommate, expo-extraordinaire, coffee supplier, writing partner, cheerleader, friend and overall goofball...


  1. LOL at the speedy comeback and you guys do look like sisters. :)

  2. It was so nice, good, FUN to finally meet and HUG you Mel. I'm so sorry we didn't get a picture...but just running into you more than once made my conference much happier.


  3. I love these pictures! Thanks for linking up!

  4. Wow. There's a lot of my mug on this page. My apologies to your readers.

    You are the best, my friend. I loved BlogHer13 - The REAL Mel & Michele. As in no bras with pajamas in the hotel room and being honest about when we really "had to go." Know what I mean? (Yes, Michele. EVERYONE knows you mean poo.)

    Oh, my God. I have to go to bed. This comment just keeps getting more awkward. Love you, dear. Feel free to delete me when you wake up and read it. :)

  5. I was going to write this touching and thoughtful comment and the I read Michele's comment and she distracted me with poo talk because seriously roommates in hotel rooms at conferences talk about that stuff...err other roommates so I've heard not me and mine of course. Also you ate TWO hamburgers?! I heard there was a fine for that. Better be careful who you tell!! So I knew you were busy at BlogHer but oh my lawrdy are you serious when did you sleep??!!! Is there anything you missed? Thank you so much for including me in your list. I felt just so very lucky to meet you and hang out with you when I did. You were just as warm and friendly as I hoped you'd be with a whole lotta more sass and straight talking then I expected...but oh my I loved it!!! LOVED IT!!! xoxoxo

    Also when did Optimis Prime start blogging. Wouldn't he like break a computer if he tried to type on it? Hmmmm
