I should be packing right now. My red patent Dansko clogs, a box of business cards, casual pants and tops and maybe a going out outfit.
I should be headed to Kentucky for the ABC Kids Expo, the ultimate juvenile products trade show that I haven’t missed since I started blogging. I’m a little bummed. I love connecting with my favorite brands, public relatons contacts and fellow bloggers.
But, it’s with good reason.
See, I’m expecting my 3rd child in March. Whoa right? A total surprise. And since I’m nearly 18 weeks along, and getting to Louisville from Seattle is more than a pain in the you know what, I’m skipping out. If you remember, my daughter Quincy came 8 weeks early, so I imagine my OB would have probably nixed the idea of me going anyway.
So I’m sitting at home, responding to well over 100 emails to my favorite companies and new ones too about why they won’t see me in Louisville. And yeah, I’m bummed. I love seeing all the new products out there – so much cool stuff is coming out this year!
If you’re a brand and reading this – drop me a line and we’ll connect. And next year? I’ll see you in Vegas. With 3.0 in tow.
