Yay Friday!

Not only is it Friday, but it's MARCH!  I'm pretty sure I've said the same thing in years past, but March always brings about such happy feelings for me!  St. Patrick's Day, Spring Break, SPRING, daylight savings, heck even March Madness is exciting when I compete for money in a tournament draft!

This first weekend in March is even more exciting because I'm headed to a blogging conference, Go Blog Social, all day tomorrow with my fellow blogger friend and neighbor, Vanessa!  Nerdy?  Maybe.  But I'm super excited for a day of blogging...or something like that!  HUGE thank you to my hubby for agreeing to fly solo with the boys all day so I can go do something fun!

In honor of this conference I have five blogging/conference related things.

Don't laugh, but I threw together some blogging business cards.  I mean, the conference info says to bring 100 of your business cards in order to network with others, so it only seemed necessary!  I paid $2 on Canva to create these bad boys and had them printed for $17 on heavy-duty, shiny paper at Office Max.  I cut them myself with my Fiskars rotary paper trimmer....which I had to do in shifts, because the paper is so heavy that it took a lot of pressure (read: energy) to cut through it!!  It was basically a mini-workout and my arm muscles have been sore from cutting all week! #wimp

However, they do look good if I do say so myself!  And I've never felt more official!!

I also threw together a media kit, which is basically a fancy-pancy PDF document that describes both me and my blog.

Which reminds me, I've got two product reviews in the works right now!  Stay tuned...

I mentioned yesterday that I'm unsure about what to wear tomorrow.  It's kind of a big deal, you know, and I want to make sure I'm dressed appropriately.  Here are a few options.  I've already ruled out #2 (too dressy), but I can't decide between the others.

What's your vote?

And finally, as if the conference isn't already crazy-exciting to me.........JADE is the keynote speaker!!!!  I'm ridiculously excited to be in the same room as one of my Bachelor faves!!

  1. I vote for #3...or #1 because even though I've only lived here since July I know you can't go wrong with a little Charlie Hustle KC love...and I'm a sucker for the tee/cardigan combo myself! Have so much fun at the conference...you should totally slip Jade one of your blog business cards!

  2. Love your business cards and media kit! I need to do that, but until I go to a conference I'm not sure it's necessary. I vote #3. Super cute on you. I can't wait to hear about the conference. Have so much fun!

  3. Your business cards and media kit look fantastic! I think I'd go with #3. Have fun at the conference!!

  4. Love your business cards! I vote #3! Have fun!

  5. I vote #3! So exciting you guys are going to a blogging conference tomorrow! I'm going to one in May and I'm excited and kind of nervous too. They told me about business cards and I have no idea where to start or even what to put on them because I don't feel like I have a real theme to my blog. I want to get one, but I don't know if in the next two months I will so maybe I'll get some cheap ones just to have some? Can't wait to hear all about it!!!

  6. Eeeeeek! That is so exciting and fun!!!! I vote for the stripes! Classic, simple, pretty! Do it! :) Can't wait to see and read all about it!!

  7. So did the stripes win?!? I know I should be going to sleep now but I'm SO EXCITED! Thanks for being nerdy with me!!!

  8. Have so much fun! Wish I could join you guys!

  9. Have so much fun today! So jealous you get to attend!

  10. Your pictures from the conference were SO awesome!! It looked like THE BEST TIME EVER!
    Loved your outfit selection.
    Totally envious of your meet and great with Jade.
    And, totally going to grab some of my own business cards, as I'm headed to a conference in May and have exactly zero cards. Oops. :)

  11. So, what outfit did you decide on? To be honest, #2 was actually my favorite & paired with those jeans, I didn't think that it was too dressy. :)

  12. Im not sure how I missed this post (yes I do I don't do blog stuff Fri-Sun, l-a-z-y) but so much great information!!!
