Almost Time for Type A Mom!

This summer has flown by! It's almost September already and that means Type A Mom conference is right around the corner!

I'm excited to go! It's in Asheville, NC, which is an absolutely gorgeous place! I'm an NC girl by marriage- Yankee by birth- don't hold it against me, though I live on the coast, so it's about a 4-5 hour hike for me to get there! I'm a beach girl- as you can probably tell from my blog. Yes, there are flip-flops on my blog cards.

I'm glad that there is a conference in my state, but I am a little nervous that it's Type A Mom, since it's possible they'll find out that I'm not really Type A in any way, shape, or form, and kick me out.

This is my second conference, though the first I'm attending without my blinky ring girls, so if you are going, please let me know! So I'm not the awkward girl in the corner with no one to talk to. Please don't let that be me.

If you are stopping by for the first time from the Type A Mom blog hop, welcome! I'm Shell, a former teacher turned sahm to my three boys, and I started this blog as a way to be able to say all the things I felt like I couldn't on my family blog. My honest opinion on parenting, marriage, friendship, and life in general. It's very freeing to have an anonymous blog.

Though, I will actually show you my face, so you can know what I look like if you will be at the conference!

Forgive the cheesy posed pic, but I'm usually behind the camera, so I had to use what I had!

On Wednesdays, you'll find my Pour Your Heart Out blog hop, which you can join by writing a post from the heart on whatever topic you want. On Fridays, I introduce you to a fabulous blogger as my BFF: Blog Friend Feature. Weekends are for product reviews and giveaways. The rest of the week varies, but it's always honest ME.

Are you going? I can't wait to meet you all!

Thank you to my sponsor, Tooth SoapĀ® , for making it possible for me to attend Type A Mom.

From Raleigh, it's a four-hour drive... if you're on the coast, it will probably be closer to 5-1/2 hours... but, it's well worth it... know you're going to have fun... I'd go but it's been years since I was a busy Mom and they wouldn't want a little old lady like me around... look forward to your next visit...

I didn't realize that there was a conference for us Type A gals! I am DEFINITELY one of the crew! I'd come to the conference if I could. Maybe another year. I do LOVE Asheville and could probably talk hubby into a little vacation there.

Damn it!

Could it be Type A bloggers?

As it stands, I'm neither a mother nor Type A, but at least I'd only be lying about one thing then.

I am so blonde.
I mean, I'm NOT really, but maybe THICK or SLOW are better words.
Man I thought this was "Type-a-Mom" conference as in, you sat on your computers and had some kind of live linked type-fest.
OK, stop laughing at me now Shell.
I have a headache, and I haven't finished my coffee. the first one for the day and its 3.30pm.
Ha, I was going to say, "I'll go with you" to "type-a-mom" of the time zones were right. Ha.
Man I am sad.

Shell, it is so nice to see you! You're so pretty! And other than the little "x" on the cartoon character for your blog, you do kind of look like her.
Have fun at the conference! Can't wait to hear all about it!

I am sure you will have a great time. I so have been on the fence about wanting to go to any of those conferences.

This will be my first time attending TypeA Mom. I hope to meet you there. I'm originally from Tennessee, so getting back near the mountains has me very excited.

Oh! I'm so happy to see you're going! I feel like I already know you, so I'm hoping to get to eet you! I won a ticket and now I'm scrambling to find a roomie or 2 or 3 (I had 3 at Blogher, it was like a slumber party) and see if I can afford the whole thing (If you have any extra sponsors laying around send them my way :) Hopefully, I'll see you soon!

I at times wish i had an anonymous blog too. Way too many people read mine so I feel like I have to be nice. I forgot my future brother-in-law reads my blog and I kind of offended him with the comment about their engagement pictures.. opps :(
