change of plans!!!

ok, my do i? don't i? do i? don't i? over san francisco next month is officially OVER, because it turns out the decision is out of my hands. i'm going to a sales conference in chicago, instead.

chicago!!!!

i LOVE chicago! and i just told
deutlich the other day about how jealous i was that she was headed there to meet up with all the awesome chicago bloggers... and now! HA HA! i am GOING!

nilsa, cheryl, jenn, pseudostoops (who am i missing?) - i hope you're free the weekend of july 12th, because i am comin' to town!! my conference is the 14th - 15th, but i'm soooo coming in early to galavant about my favorite windy city for the weekend leading up to it.

i'm bummed that this definitively knocks out blogher (and
carrie - i'm DEFINITELY still coming out there sometime within the year! just, uh, not in 3 weeks now) because i really wanted to meet slynnro and raven and everyone else i could approach without scaring off.

i was about 20 seconds away from buying a ticket to cali yesterday... good thing i'm so indecisive, for once. chicago!!!

I LOVE Chicago. I've only been there twice, but I really, really want to go back. Have fun!

Jess said...

Cool! Make sure to get restaurant recommendations from Nilsa and Pseudostoops, because I picked all of our restaurants through them and it was the most amazing weekend of eating EVER. Especially May Street Market. And Japonais. Mmmmmmmmm. Also, they themselves are fabulous and you are going to have so much fun meeting them. Also again, maybe there won't be a snowstorm when you're there. That was the only downside of our trip.

Marie said...

Yay! Sounds awesome! Go and have loads of fun! You totally deserve it. :)

Lauren said...

AWESOME! Chicago really rocks! I hope you have lots of fun!

deutlich said...

How many Chicago bloggers ARE there?! I only know of Jenn from that list! This nuts!

kilax said...

Ah man. I wish I didn't have guests in town that weekend. If you want to get together on the 15th for lunch or something...? You'll probably be stuck in your conference though!

moo said...

don't forget kristabella! Y'all will have a BLAST! (I'm so jealous you get to do a FUN trip)

Jenn said...

I'm happy you're coming out here. I'll be garage selling that weekend, but I'll be free in the early evening/night.

Yay!

Nilsa S. said...

Woo Hoo - another blogger descends on Chicago! I'm totally in town AND IF Sweets and I are to have a party in July, it will likely be THAT weekend. (Otherwise, we'll be stuck going to a soccer game). So, let's touch base offline and figure out when we're getting together. Wheeeeeee!

Sometimes indecision pays off! I always have fun in Chicago, so I am sure you will have great time.

Raven said...

Awww *pout* I am bummed to not get the chance to meet you but as Moo mentioned, Kristabella is in Chicago as well so maybe you can meet her instead. :)

pseudostoops said...

Yay yay yay yay yay! I love it when people come to Chicago! We will definitely have to get together, and as Jess mentioned I have lots of strong feelings about Chicago restaurants that I am happy to pass along to you. =)

Chicago! Cool! Fate has intervened in an awesome way.

Leaf, probably... said...

Fun!

I will not be traveling anywhere fun. I will be at my desk at work reading about everyone else traveling places.

GW Mush said...

Sounds like fun Alice.

As Ferris Buttler said, life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while (in Chicago) , you could miss it

SLynnRo said...

BOO!

SLynnRo said...

And Kristabella will be in SF in a hotel room WITH ME!

SLynnRo said...

OH WAIT DUH NO SHE WON'T.

I can't read.

minijonb said...

mmm... Grand Lux Cafe just off of Michigan Ave. on Ohio... mmm yummy.

Knot said...

No thanks. Not a fan of Chicago or rather the people. You need to go and redeem my opinion of them and have a lot of fun.
