One week from now I will be having inappropriate amounts of fun with anybody brave enough to get within ten feet of me.
No, this isn’t a Miley Cyrus music video – it’s Haven!
Last year I attended the first-ever Haven Conference for DIY and home décor bloggers, and something super surprising happened:
In fact – they embraced me!
I hugged so many hot Havenistas that I considered the act (coupled with my incessant wine glass to mouth action) my arm workout for the month. On top of that, I had the thrill of meeting some of my favorite bloggers who I’ve considered my friends for years – and now that we’ve met, we really are!
(If I meet you and like you, we’re friends. That’s my rule.)
Not only did I get to meet these fabulous favorite bloggers of mine, but if you go to the Haven Conference website you’ll notice that THIS is one of the first pictures you’ll see in the header! WHA?!
Haven 2012 was such a full and fun-filled experience that I wrote a recap post for each day – check them out if you’re interested in getting a sense of what to expect for this year’s conference, or if you simply want to
live vicariously through me shake your head and wonder how I don’t get arrested:
Other titles considered for this post included:
- Socializing After Only 4 Hours of Sleep
- Is It Legal to Buy This Much Alcohol in The South?
- The Rudest Introduction EVER!
- Thank Goodness for Clara
- Can I Still Call Myself “A Blogger” If I Don’t Take Pictures?
So many crazy things happened during Day 2 that I can’t even sum it up in sentence. What, with my hangover and 5″ eyeliner, the Dusty Hump Sandwich months in the making, meeting soulmates in the wine line, taking dares involving saxophone players, and closing down restaurants in the ATL…you’re just going to have to click and read to get all the juicy details.
“Haven is like Las Vegas.
Time ceases to exist when you’re there.”
Deep thoughts by Dusty, my two new girl crushes, and famous last words.
OH THE FUN WE HAD!
And I CANNOT WAIT to discover all the fun we’re going to have again this year! Haven 2013 is less than one week away and I plan to BRING IT, ya’ll! (<- look at me, already practicing my southern).
Speaking of “southern” – check out this comic my southern friend Beth from Unskinny Boppy (who joined me for Haven last year) sent me after the conference:
It still cracks me up to this day!
What can I say? I can’t help myself!
Will you be joining me at Haven this year? I hope you are, but if not, consider me your Haven Ambassador! Who do you insist I meet? Who do you want me to photo bomb? What questions should I ask your favorite bloggers? Let me hear it!
Follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for all the details of Haven through my eyes, live from Atlanta! Then look for Haven 2013 recaps coming in early August – you know I’m going to spill it! (The details – not my wine.)
