In which I break my vow with much relish

So you remember the CBC? And you remember how I swore before the Bloggy Gods that I would never attend a conference?

I sinned. And I LOVED it.

I felt much pricked after reading a talk by Elder Bednar. He really didn't say much at all about meeting online friends, but that's what I got out of it. That I needed to see people as they really are - which is somewhat challenging if we never meet.

Well, I met some fabulous ladies. And I'm pretty sure I got to see them as they really are (I even saw Annie's girdle.) They even got to see me - without mascara. Pretty sure the number of people who can claim this privilege has now doubled.

So. I was wrong. Meeting bloggy friends ROCKS.

And I am so at the next CBC.

Woot, woot! It was so great to meet you, even if it was for about 7 minutes. That Annie and her boobs and baby!

I'm so glad you're a sinning vow-breaker (who's temple worthy). :)

Now, if I had known you were going, I might have tried to score a ticket. But I'm glad you broke your vow. It is so, SO worth it. And I love that you went to the temple with some blog sisters. That would've been truly a beautiful experience.

Didn't we also say no posting of pictures? ;) Not to worry. I am so glad we got to document such a wonderful day. And boy... I know it's been said already, but - shortest 8 hour drive EVER!

I really want to try and go to CBC this coming year. Hated that I missed such a fun time last year.

I am so thrilled for you! All my bloggy meetup experiences have been luverly. Some, bittersweet because of the goodbyes at the end, but ALWAYS luverly. Glad you got to experience that too!

really, Hel? Short 8 hours? type of short???

I LOVED MEETING YOU GUYS! Seriously! I mean, SERIOUSLY! And you, That Girl, are as beautiful as I imagined.

best weekend ever.

Though I wish I could have seen Annie's girdle.

I'm glad you got a chance to meet up with other bloggers. It really is amazing. :)
