Will I See You in Toronto?!?

I am headed out the door, off to work, but then I’m immediately hitting the snowy trail for a road trip to BlogPodium & the Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup (plus the Interior Design Show, of course). 

Packing was a bit excruciating.  As a PhD candidate, 100% of the conferences I typically attend are attended by other academics and, not to be rude, I’ve grown accustomed to being the best-dressed.  Ironing my clothes has been the secret to my success.  But I have a feeling the other bloggers I’ll meet this weekend will be fancier than me.  You’ve seen my closet - you know I don’t have a lot of clothing (I don't even own a dresser).  Plus, I work from home most days so my closet is chock full of yoga pants and cozy hoodies.  This is my uniform:

Yes, Uggs are Ugly but SO warm. 

But I struggled through and picked some outfits – you’ll see photos soon enough!  I even fixed my DIY-destroyed manicure.

If you’re heading to the IDS or BlogPodium or Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup, please come and say “hi” to me!  These are my first blogging events and I will know no one from the real world, while other bloggers might already have bosom blog buddies.  Here’s me:


Well, I’m off!  I found some old CDs for my road trip, so if you hear this song blasting from a black Nissan Versa, that’s me (apologies for cutting you off):

  7. I don't think I've commented before, but I've been following you for a few months. :) I'll be at blogpodium as well. I'm so excited to be putting faces to all the blogs I've been reading. (And maybe start being less of a quiet lurker.)

  10. I'm so envious of you!!! TO is my hometown and I attended IDS regularly before I became a blogger. It's so much fun and I know you'll meet some amazing people. Can't wait to hear all about it. BTW, where is home for you? I miss Ont and love hearing about where my favourite peeps live.

    1. We're from Thunder Bay, then moved to Kingston & now the Hubs and I live in Ottawa. Hubby has asked me to keep our city private, but I've convinced him I'm not alluring enough for stalkers so I plan to chat more about our lovely city in future posts!
