NC Mom Conference Day 2

Well, it's day 2 of the NC Mom Bloggers Beach Conference and I feel more comfortable.  The ladies here are all so nice and welcoming.  It has been fun getting to know them!  The picture above is of me and Malise from Carolina Mama.  I know a lot of y'all know her from her blog.  She is just as sweet as I thought she would be and very pretty too!

The sessions today were great!  We learned a lot about the Brunswick Islands.  I love it here!  We also had a session on Healthy Living and Healthy Blogging from Malise from Carolina Mama and Jen from One Mom's World.  Another session was on SEO, search engine optimization, and was led by Lisa from A Daily Pinch.  Wow, did she give out A TON of info on how to make our blogs easier to find by search engines.

We also had a little time to go and play on the beach before we came back to Ocean Isle Inn for a pasta buffet.  The food was delicious!  I loved the chicken the best!  Nope, actually what I loved best was the conversations I had with Carolyn, Liz, Barb, Angela, and Maricris.  They are amazing ladies!  I loved hearing all their cool stories and just getting to know them. 

I'm starting to miss my husband and kids, but it's nice just being away for a girls weekend!  I haven't done that in... maybe, ever?  It's been awesome and we still have sessions tomorrow.  I'll try to post back then!

I'm glad you're having such a fun time Nancy! It sounds so fun! I have never gone away from my dh and kids and have thought about it! I've never been to a blog conference and have thought about that as well!
I love that picture of you (the one by yoursself) on the beach! You look so happy!

O.K., now I'm starting to feel a little jealous!.. No-ooooo, just kidding! The ocean looks heavenly, Nancy! I'd say "you should see it here", with the snowfall we just got hit with, but you just look like you're having WAY too much fun for THAT!.. Maybe you can throw some crackers/breadcrumbs to the seagulls for me!.. Enjoy! ~tina

Sounds like you're having a great time. You need time for just you and so glad you went. Maybe next time I can join you, even if I'm not a mom.
