SITScation – Day 1

Oh my gosh ladies. If they do this again, you need to beg, borrow or steal to get here! The suite at the Venetian is just beyond words. It’s so spacious and lovely. This is just the living room area.  The blinds were so complicated, I had to call the front desk to even figure out how to open them.  

Look at these gorgeous masks at the Venetian gift shops!  I would so love to collect these, but I’d have to mortgage one of the kids to do it, so it’s probably not worth it.

Hey Matt – take my picture!  Don’t you love the zebra stripe purse?  Yep, I’m a flashy girl!  The Venetian was gorgeous inside and out.

We had a little extra time to kill so we popped across the street to The Mirage and went through the Siegfried and Roy exhibit.  They had the baby white tigers out for playtime and they were so adorable.  Definitely a big highlight for both of us as Matt has always been such a fan of white tigers.

So far, I am just LOVING the conference. The ladies are all so friendly and we had a blast last night at the cocktail party. Everyone was dressed up all sparkly and pretty. Our swag bags were awesome! I’ve been drinking out of my special filtered water bottle, wearing my Twisted Silver bracelet, nibbling on some of the goodies they gave us and writing with my Nanny Goats in Panties pen! Not everyone can say that, can they?

Here I am rocking the zebra print again.  Earth tones are just not my color scheme.  I want something you can see from outer space!  

We had just two brief speakers last night and they were both awesome. Meaghan from IKickedCancersAss spoke about Spirit Jump and was awesome and another ladies (gosh I am blanking on her name – I’m so sorry!) Janine I think, was just speaking about blogging in general and how brave we are to do this and how much a special post can really affect other women (OK men too, but they are few and far between in the world of Mommy Blogging).

Laurie (Tip Junkie) flanked by both of the original SITS girls – Heather and Tiffany.  

Today we get Laurie Turk from Tip Junkie and Alli Worthington who runs a conference of her own called Blissdom. I didn’t know who either of them were, but now I’m definitely a fan of both!  See how out of the loop I am? I’m really looking forward to some great information and I’ve got my special notebook all ready to take notes.

Part of the awesomeness is just meeting all these women. It’s funny, I was reading Heather and Tiffany’s blogs for months before I ever realized they were the SITSgirls. But since I signed up for SITScation, I’ve been poking around trying to get to everyone’s blogs and it’s so fun to see the faces behind the blogs I’ve been reading.

Anyway, gotta dash so I can get a bite. If you are here, I’ll be seeing you soon. If you aren’t I’ll bet you wish you were! Next year. Or I think they are having one on the East Coast soon. Hugs!

  1. Hey, my pens really appreciate the shout out. It was really awesome to meet you! My favorite part was simply meeting other bloggers face to face, and it was nice meeting your face.


    Have a great week!

  2. Great update! Sounds like a winner 😀 I may need to contemplate for next year!

  3. We had so much fun!!!! I can’t wait to do it again. You were someone I was really excited to meet, as I feel like I have known you forever.

    I wish we could have talked more at dinner last night- that table was too long!
