My Trip for Design Mom: Behind the Scenes

Gabby of Design Mom is busy with her new baby so she let me go to a Honda blogging event for her in San Diego. It was pretty glamorous. Go here for more details, if you are so inclined.

  1. Great blog! I hate seeing and hearing myself in video clips, but I have been told my career should have been as air traffic controller. Thanks for not putting in the clip with *my* cellphone number:-) Nice meeting you at the event!

  2. I like your choice for the business casual. My business is being a housewife my regular business attire is jeans and a shirt, so I would have to jump to the conclusion that business casual for me is yoga pants and a stained tshirt.

    You are looking very good, by the way. So svelte!

    I feel gypped that I didn't get to go to the Honda thing! I love my Honda minivan. I know linking to my own post is très tacky but I've even blogged about it! http://segullah.org/daily-special/a-loser-cruiser-i-beg-to-differ/

    Next time you are too fancy to go on a blog trip, can I go in your place?

  3. Hey, HotStuff. You met MommyNiri? She's one of my new favorites. I got to know her at Evo, and I saw her a few times at BlogHer. (You're going next year, right?)

  5. Everything that happened to you on that trip is real. All those people you met, they're all real, too. The most important part of your life was the time you spent with those people. You needed all of them and they needed you.

  6. P.S. I think your driver sounds like Andy Bernard.

  7. Excellent wardrobe choices. But next time, less about the van and more about the food! ps. All this name-dropping/self-promoting by your commenters makes me think that I am definitely missing out on sitting at the cool kids' lunch table.

  8. With three little boys (one a newborn) it is encouraging to know I am operating somewhere well below capacity. Your trip sounds dreamy, even with the hondas. Then again going to costco alone is a vacation.

  9. I like feeling validated that I'm not 100% myself and I'm not working on all cylinders (to use a car reference). It's something that I've long suspected, but haven't, ironically, had the mental acuteness to analyze or remember.

    My taxi driver on my last trip had six kids from four different women, but none of them were living with him. He is too old to keep up with them, but he tries!

  10. I have a lot of comments (first, I want Lisa to know that since my grandfather died last Thursday, I have done every stitch of laundry AND ironing in this house, cleaned the inside and outside of the fridge, oven AND dishwasher, thus proving once again her earlier comment about cleaning in the face of tragedy), but I only have time to say that you look fan-freaking-tastic in your business elegant outfit, right down to that schmancy clutch! If you were ever berating your figure, go apoologize to yourself cuz you look super foxy.

  11. I like you. And you looked like a babe in your elegannt business casual/formal wear.

  12. The Salt Lake airport has that effect on a lot of people.

  13. So glad you had that time alone. How fun! I just wanted to say that when your kids become old enough to babysit one another then there is another level of self awareness and freedom that you are gonna love. So look forward to that day : )

  14. Maybe that drivers wife was Anna Lucia...Also, airports are one of the best places for fond odors. The smell of an airport is the smell of adventure, and to an equal or lesser extent, the smell of picking someone fun up.

  15. I loved loved loved your post on Design Mom. You did a great job ate being gabbyish. Great post. I want to go out and buy a minivan and on the way to the dealership fins enough money to do it.

  16. sounds like your trip was a dream within a dream within a car advertisement. was your totem still spinning when you came home to hug your kids?

  17. Jamie,
    Well done. It's what we do. (Clean) There's no shame in it. Only satisfaction.
    And I'm sorry about your Grandfather. Sincerely.
    Lisa

  18. Hey, you met me! And I'll be your friend :)

  19. I love myself some hondas. I still have the 91 Integra I got in high school. He'll be twenty in November. And I'm on Honda minivan # 3.

    Plus I haven't slept through the night in a year.

    I wish I'd gone on your trip. That quiet hotel room sounds better than Italy right now.

  20. "...their anniversary marks the day they first made love."

    Oh, to be a fly on a (minivan) wall...

  21. You look great and this was very funny. You were perfect for this!

  22. Hey wait, didn't we meet briefly, too? I remember seeing your name on the seating arrangement during the presentation. If I had connected you back to your blog at all, I would have let you know I read you all the time.

    However, I blame the pregnancy hormones for my lack of memory/connection. That and I knew absolutely no one there either! Met some great ladies though (you included). :)

  23. Oops - PS) I was there for AskPatty.com, so you would have seen that on my nametag, not misspriss.org. :)

  24. Totally almost bought that top over at Provo Town Center. Yay for our awesome fashion sense ;)

  25. Now that you're big and famous, I hope you still talk to us normal folks. Looks like a fun trip!
