BlogHer or Bust!

As many of you know, I will be attending BlogHer in Chicago next week. This will be my first time without Hunky Hubby and the children. Be prepared for my personal edition of Mommy Blogger Gone Wild. If I can manage to stay up past 9:30 p.m., that is.

The lovely Mocha Momma is sponsoring a getting-to-know-you in 10 seconds or less for attendees. Little does she know of my talent in this area. Once upon a time, I gave a talk in church that ran oh, say 20 minutes over. I was so hassled and teased that the next time I spoke, I clocked myself at a clean 5 minutes. Someone came up to me afterwards and shaking her head, said, “Congratulations. You just crammed a 30-minute talk into 5 minutes.

Talent, people. Talent

And so me, in 10 seconds or less:
Bred and born in Calgary, Canada. Went to college in the U.S., and was the queen of study abroads. First semester: Natural Science Field Expedition where we backpacked all around the country. Final semester: the Middle East. No backpacking involved for fear of getting blown up by terrorists.

And I wondered why it only took me five and a half years to finish my degree in broadcast journalism.

Worked for a number of years as a travel writer and as a publicist and radio personality for Utah’s ski and outdoor industry. Know how to say “skiing is cool” in 100 different ways.

Moved to Denver and married the love of my life in 2003. Have two great kids whom we drag on our many biking and hiking expeditions.

Will be launching Mile High Mamas for The Denver Post at the end of August. Life goals are to someday rule the world and to get more than six hours of sleep doing it.
