Blogapalooza 2008

Anyone up for a blog party??

This is your official invitation to join me and other fellow bloggers for a night of fun at a blog party!

When: May 1, 2008

Where: Provo, UT (I'll be attending a church women's conference at BYU both Thursday and Friday and would love for you to join me, or you can just come to the blog party Thursday night!)

Who: any friendly blogger that would like to come and meet other fellow bloggers! All are welcome!

What: We will have a room on campus and will have a catered dinner, plus games and my famous mint brownies! Ticket price will probably be around $15-20.... exact price to be announced in February.

If you are interested in coming, let me know! We will exchange more specifics through an email group as it gets closer. We also have info. on cost to stay the night for cheap if you're coming from out of town.

I will also post a list of who's coming so you can study up on their blog and be prepared to recognize them in person. So far the girls that are in are Celia, Paige and Jessica (see their blogs for more info.). Now, who else is in??

Won't it be fun to meet each other in person?!? I'm so excited!

Comment if you're interested, and e-mail me for more information!!

Are you as excited as I am? Does this mean we need a life? Now can we call them real friends instead of virtual friends?

Paige said...

Anyone who doesn't come is kicked out of the virtual club. We are buying plane tix to Utah for Heaven's Sake.

Jenna said...

I'd love to go, but I'm telling you what I told Celia. I'm not coming unless Angie's coming, 'cuz I know her in real life and I'm too timid to go if I don't "actually" know anybody.

You have to make Angie come. I'd really like to meet you all.

Denae said...

Jenna, I'm sure Ang will come cause she lives there! So now you can come to!! YAY!

And everyone else, if you can't come that is ok. Obviously we will still be blog friends even if you can't come. But I would love to meet you. That is why I'm inviting everyone. We'll see what happens.

angie said...

I am SOOO going to come to "blogapalooza" I am really excited!! PARTY!! That means Jenna is coming too!!
I want Tanyetta to come!!

Denae said...

Ang! I totally agree... Tanyetta, what do you say?

angie said...

Tanyetta, Tanyetta... (I'm chanting) you know you want to come out to Utah!

Celia Fae said...

Oh, wouldn't that be the greatest to have Tanyetta? She really is the master of all things blog.

gab said...

Yay! I am coming for sure...

Stie: My Favorite Things said...

I am for sure in. Can't wait to turn my pretend friends into real ones! Yay!

John Holly Levi & Faith said...

Okay. You KNOW I'm there. I'm SOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

angie said...

I want Julie aka Rarely Home Mom to come! Julie are you in???

Stina said...

Wow, I would love to come! I am jumping on the "I won't come unless _____ comes" bandwagon though, and Denae, I'm counting on you to help me convince Mindy to come!

Mindy, I know you'll be 8 months pregnant at the time, but do you think you could swing it? (And I love how I am writing to Mindy via a comment on Denae's blog, because I know for sure she will read it here.) The wonder of blogs!

I'll see who else I can convince to come with me b/c I, too, need "in real life" friends to bolster me at what will turn out to be an amazing gathering. Thanks, Denae!

Denae said...

Mindy, I was trying to calculate your pregnancy in my head to see if you could come... I know you'll be far along but I think you'll be fine. And if you went into labor we would all take care of you! So can you come?

Julie P??? We have requests for you too!!! And you're close by so I'm counting on you!

Don't be shy people... I know you want to come and party with random bloggers across the nation! You can stay on campus with us for SO cheap!

Denae said...

And Stina! I'm glad you're in... let's both work on Mindy!

Mindy said...

Alright! ALRIGHT!!! I'll try my best girls. Definitely something to talk to Jake and my Dr. about. Man, sometimes my fans can be so hounding. :)

Mom2My6Kids said...

I wanna come!

summer said...

I am really considering this. I could use a little girl's weekend getaway. And I would kill to hang out with my D-dawg and leave with a 6 pack from laughing so hard! Oh how I miss you. Lesley- I want to see you too! Are you in? Sarah Hull- will you be to pregs?

Denae said...

Laurie, email me!

SUMMER! I would be thrilled if you came!! I'm SO hoping Les can come too!!!
Sarah??? What about you?? I'm laughing just thinking about it all!

tanyetta said...

*fanning myself to keep from crying* awwwwwwwwww you are so sweet to chant for me :)

you know i would LOVE to come! i've never been to Utah. do they allow tequila drinkers there? i promise to conceal my flask this time! :)

let me go and shake the piggy bank to see what i can come up with.

Moody Blogger said...

This sounds so fun. Too bad I'm kind of Utah'd out right now, or I'd be there :) Be sure to blog about it!

Rochelleht said...

Oh DaNae, I'm dying. All my favorite 'virtual' people will be there. I don't think I can swing it with all my vacationing lately. I so wish this were in the summer, cause we stay in Utah. Hmmmmm... weekend, no babysitter needed..... hmmmm... working out argument in my head...

Rochelleht said...

Bummer, it's not actually a weekend. That makes it tougher.

martha corinna said...

I think I should be able to go, especially if Rochelle can swing it. Try hard Rochelle!

Brigitta said...

You know my reasons for not coming and I am sad that I will miss out on the party of the year. Hopefully I can squeeze out the baby before you all leave me alone and friendless during my time of need.

Denae said...

Rochelle, I understand but keep thinking about how it could work cause we want you there.

Martha- YAY! You're coming! It will be fun to meet you.

Brigitta, sorry to leave you alone... but I'm sure the baby will come before that right??? Even though the party will be fun I still wish I couldn't go for your same reason.

Celia Fae said...

But Rochelle, it's religion. Your husband wants you to be righteous, right?

Hull Family said...

Denae, you are a party girl after my own heart!!! I DIE over this idea and would be there in a heart beat... but I just have two minor issues holding me back.
1. I can't fly anymore. the thought of it puts me into a full blown panic attack. So I would have to make the summster drive with me.... but then their is issue #2... I will have just had a c-section (the week before) and I don't think you girls want to help change my scar bandages and push me around in a wheelchair. I would put a big damper on the blog party. But give me a year and I'll be there for the next one with my pom poms on and ready to cheer for uniting blogging buddies!
p.s. I am trying to get a hold of Sherri Dew, so if you see her can you slip her my number for me. I'd appreciate it.

Tiffanyrose said...

Man, I live on the other side of the country and we just did our BIG trip out West for Christmas. Have fun though!!

Jill said...

Oh my goodness, that sounds awesome!!!!!!! I SO SO SO want to go. I am traveling so stinkin' much I am breaking the bank. I need to move back to UTAH!!!!!!! I doubt I will be able to come, but I will surely talk it over with my hub. Sounds fabulous. I'll let you know!!!!!!!!

Tristan said...

It sounds like tons of fun but the only people I even slightly know are you and I did meet Paige. Getting to Utah for me would be no problem, (my whole family is there and I'm from there). So I am going to put myself as a maybe right now.

sheena said...

I'm LOVING this idea. But the fact that I would go knowing....let's see....no one, how desperate am I!!??

Sarah H, please come. I will get Kasey here, and we will change your large bandaids, and hold your cute baby boy.

katri said...

Sounds like a total blast! I'm in.

Come on Rochelle! You NEED to come, it's like going to a spa... spiritual spa with awesome friends. (oh, I'm a bad tempter... sorry!)

Auzigirl said...

Sounds like fun, I'm coming....if Trent can get work off.

julie said...

I want to come, but don't know if I can. I will figuer it out and let you know, soon. Sounds like a blast!

Denae said...

Sheena, Katri, Audry, Tristan, Jill? YAY! I am SO glad you guys might come. Email me if you want more info and if you want to be added to the email group list where we will be discussing it in more details. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet all of you!

Julie said...

I have no excuse since I'm minutes away. I'm SO there! What a fun idea Denae. I'd love to go to the womens conference too. I've always wanted to but have never been even though I've lived here for almost 10 years now...whoa, thats a long time.

Bridget said...

This looks SO fun and I certainly don't want to be kicked out of the virtual club. But I don't see how I can swing it. I am doing a triathlon that Sat. May 3rd. Stuffing my face with brownies and flying back into town last minute probably aren't in the training schedule. Bummer! Don't have too much fun without me. :(

Tom & Rachel said...

Hey Denae, first time commenter here. I'm friends with Mindy and I kind of stalk your blog. You're just so entertaining. Anyway, I think this sounds like so much fun. I'm always looking for an excuse to go back to Provo (since I still have friends there) and I think the whole blogapalooza/Women's Conference is a great idea. I'll try and talk Mindy into going too. I feel kind of psycho since I've never commented before and nobody knows me, but I guess you still have 4 months or so to get to know me!

katie said...

sigh... silly children and chicago weather... the things holding me back, I wish I could come and meet everyone.

Lisa-Marie said...

FUN FUN FUN!!!!!

Put me on the list.

Question??? Why Thursday, not Friday? Just curious?!?!?

Oh, I'm dreaming of the reunion now!!!! Can't wait!

Mike and Ariane said...

Sounds like fun! Let me know if you are ever on the East Coast having a party!

Rochelleht said...

I'm with Lisa-Marie. Could it be Friday? I might have an easier time pitching that.

Shally said...

I'm with Sheena-- sounds fun, but I know not-a-one of you. I am feeling a bit desperate too...

Okay, I am over it. I need to get out and meet new people!!Count me in.

Ashley said...

It would be worth the trip just for your brownies, or so I imagine. I am always up for a trip to Utah, so if I can manage getting two kids on a plane by then I'll be there!

JKAndrus said...

Sounds fun, count me in!

Dancin Queen said...

Just linked over to you from Gab's blog. Sounds like fun! I think I would like to try to come. This is my first visit to your blog, but I skimmed a couple and your posts are so cute. I've never been to a blog party before. It sounds kind of scary. I'm kind of shy. I'll try and work up the courage. Unless you change it to a Friday (as requested above) as I would be unavailable then.

Mique said...

Hi- I'm a Gab fan too. Linked here from her blog. I'm planning on being at Women's Conference and would love to be a your party. Does it matter that I only know a few (and when I say "know" I mean know them from their blogs)?
How fun. Thanks for organizing this!

Tip Junkie said...

Count me in!

Amber said...

Wow, a whole network of LDS bloggers I didn't know existed? I came over here via Stine and may just have to do the rounds to everyone's blogs so I can join the party, too. :-)

Cecilia Mills said...

I'm so excited to be able to meet other LDS bloggers! And the best of all, I live 5 minutes away from BYU. I'll be there!

i'm kelly said...

so i know it's april, and women's conference is around the corner, but i JUST found out about the big party. i'd love to join in the fun, is there still room? i don't know where i've been, but it seems like all my favorite people will be there.
