Gettin Antsy


Today I started packing for Blog Camp Reno. I know, I know, you think I'm getting ahead of myself, but that's not really the case. Although BC Reno doesn't start until Friday, I am actually going out Wednesday. Actually I'm not a true Blog Camper, but more of a pseudo-camper since I'll be staying at my moms house all week. I'm kinda bummed about that, but my mom, who doesn't consider herself elderly (she prefers Outrageous Older Woman), needs my help. I could wax philosophical about being in that stage of life where I'm not only caring for my children, but also caring for my parent. However, that's not what THIS post is about. This is about being totally excited about finally getting to go to my very first Blog Camp!

So, because I know how much most of us love lists, here is what I have so far:
  • Blog Camp t-shirts -- yes I got 2, one lilac and one green
  • Big girl camera (although it's a Canon, not a Nikon)
  • Big girl lens for my camera
  • Sony P&S just in case
  • Tiaras -- yes, plural
  • Big ass Starbucks mug for my morning fix
  • Bottle of wine for my evening fix
  • Extra wine glass just in case
  • iPhone and iPod
  • Giftie for hostess
  • Three bottles of prescription strength Axe Repellent
  • Very cool, very pink Sperrys -- not Chucks, I couldn't find a pair that grabbed me. The Sperrys practically jumped into my hands. I love them!
However, there are several things that I'm afraid I won't get to before I leave:
  • Lose excess wine weight
  • Lose the gray hair (I mean if I had any...)
  • Manicure and pedicure
  • Lose excess wine weight
  • Buy a Nikon
  • Get my Moo cards delivered in time to gift (free shipping was 5 days, I leave in 2)
  • Lose excess wine weight
Hopefully I can get some of that stuff done. I don't see it happening...

Despite what Spud says, I hear Canon's are as good as Nikon's....in fact, my P&S is a Canon and I LOVE IT.....
I'm jealous you got two Blog Camp t-shirts....silly me, I might have liked to have more than one....as for the Chuck's, I went and bought two pair, but, just between you, me and your followers, they weren't very comfortable and I took 'em back....(they were kind of pricey for sneakers) and bought some generic sneaks.

I will not get your 100th post gift to you in the mail before you leave...I just finished making it tonight, therefore, I will bring it to Blog camp, as you recommended earlier.....

I'm curtailing my whole week around getting ready for Blog Camp...and I keep thinking of things I need to do, but, am running out of time, aaaacgkgkgk!

I hope i fit in.....

;o)

I left something for you at my place. Stop in when you have a minute!

Okay, now I'm totally kicking myself and wondering why I'm not going to BC Reno? We need a blog camp East Coast!

Love the Axe Repellant which I know must have been hard to find. Lucky for you, you work in the "biz" and probably have privileged contacts.

I have not been paying attention! What is Blog Camp?????

Little Ms Blogger said...

How fun and how envious am I.....

Can't wait to hear all about it. Do you know a lot of people that are going? That's the part I'd love the most, meeting fellow bloggers and putting a face to the blog.

Pastor Sharon said...

By the way have fun at camp. And isn't camping in the house the only way to camp? just saying. . . .

McGillicutty said...

How in the heck could OTIN have missed the whole Blog Camp thing...umm hello do you live under a sewage pipe???? ;)

And only one bottle of wine? how about two and one blog camp t-shirt that would make more sense!!!! I'm panicking now, haven't started to plan never mind pack!!!!

Esmerelda said...

I, too, am confused by the sole bottle of wine. Unless that is for the journey and you plan to buy more when you get there.

Happy (belated) anniversary!!!

Loredana said...

I'm with Fragrant Muse, we need an East Coast Blog Camp!!

Have fun and don't worry about the list of things you may not get to...you're going away, and what goes on in Vegas stays in Vegas ;-)

Otin said...

Still no answer! What is blog camp????

Optimistic Pessimist said...

Oh joy! I can't wait to hear all about it!!! Safe travels!

rxBambi said...

what have you been hiding under??

Medora said...

This is too cute - I don't do camp of any sort. Well, maybe if there is a hot tub and Marky Mark involved . . .

JW.BW said...

O I hope you have a fantastic time!!! Should be great!! Sounds like you are all prepared!! Dont forget your marshmellows, chocolate n grams for smores!! I only bring that up because I had my VERY FIRST smores last weekend... wow, real life changer!! AWESOME!! Hope you have a great trip!

Hit 40 said...

OH... I love that Medora is hanging with all of us.

Too funny. She is serious about Marky Mark.

Enjoy camp. Tell your mom hi for us.

I had a great time at my camp in Belize! Oh wait, I was already there!

Anyway have fun and make sure you pack extra bug spray and you have your name on your socks!

If you don't stop the "neener, neener, neener" thing I'm going to tell Bob!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I agree with Fragrant Muse and Loredana that we need an East Coast Blog Camp (ECBC has a nice ring to it!) But man oh man if I had been paying attention earlier I would have tried to sneak into the Reno Blog Camp - I've been meaning to get out there for years to visit my best friend who lives there! :)
