Boston Bound


Good morning friends! Big day for me. I jump on a plane and head to BOSTON today! I am so excited for Healthy Living Summit, and I can’t believe it’s HERE, and I can’t believe it’s been a year since Philly.


I arrive this evening and will immediately be going to my first mini mingle, meeting up with some of the attendees for fro-yo. Friday is registration and the cocktail party, and of course the sessions Saturday. I will be using my awesome new Samsung Galaxy S3 from Verizon Wireless to live tweet (#HLS12) during the summit. i will also be tweeting, and using Instagram to share photos with those of you at home.

*Awesome feature alert, when you are looking at the screen of the new Galaxy, the screen doesn’t go dark after a certain length of time. It detects your eyes looking at the screen and stays lit. Way cool, I love it!

A couple of things I gleaned from last year that I will be sure to carry into this year include…

-Leaving enough room in my suitcase for my epic swag bag.

-wearing comfortable shoes all weekend (except for dinners/parties) so I don’t get blisters walking around the city

-bring a jacket into the conference because it was cold last year!

-bring a notebook for note taking during the sessions. last year I scribbled on scratch paper which ended up being difficult to read.

-Take more pictures! While I did take a lot last year, I want to get more candid shots this year of everyone having a good time at the summit.

-Try to talk to as many people as I can. Last year was my first conference and I was a little nervous and didn’t branch out as much as I would have liked.

To say I am excited is a severe understatement. My next blog post will be direct from Boston!

    I love blog conferences, mostly for hanging out with blog friends. We all talk so much online, but it’s awesome to see each other in person!

    I’m a runner, so of course, I would love a group run.

    Have a blast and enjoy it. And keep an eye on your “injury” — don’t make it worse.
