Last month, there was a conference in town for bloggers called BlogWorld. Jackie and I saw lots of tweets from diabetic bloggers about being here in Las Vegas and thought it would great to see Kerri again (we met up with her in New York in 2008) and meet everyone while we were all in the same town! (I would link to my blog posts about meeting Kerri and Allison in New York right now, but since my blog was deleted, I was never able to recover some of the posts. :( very sad.) But I have a blog about meeting Gina Capone last year while she was here in Las Vegas! yay! :) Any way, it is SO nice to meet and talk to people in the diabetic online community like Kerri, Scott, George, Elizabeth from Diabetes Daily, Amy from DiabetesMine, Christopher from Diabetic Rockstar, Jenni, Alexis, Gina, and Allison! It was amazing meeting all of you in person and getting to know everyone more. Geroge’s laugh is so contagious, it was SO cool that he drove all the way from California to hang out that weekend with everyone. :) Thank you Kerri for the pictures from your amazingly awesome camera! :)
Me, Scott, Kerri, Jenni, and Jackie!
RE-BLOG from Scott: "When I was in Vegas for Blog World last month, I had the chance to meet up with Mollie & Jackie Singer (founders of Diabetic Angels). I had the pleasure of hanging out with them (and Kerri and Jenni) for the evening. We talked about all of the great things they are up to, and I’d like to encourage you to keep an eye on these two. They are great gals and are working on some big things. Take a look at this cool music video for their song “Can’t Say Love Enough” (iTunes link). Reblogged from A “Ninja Point” List on Scott’s Diabetes Journal."
We also met Alexis, (Sugar_Nova on Twitter) and her son, Justice and their family on November 6th, the same day as our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes in Las Vegas. They won best T-shirt and cut the ribbon we helped tie since we were 2 hours early! :) That was a fun day, and it was really nice to meet Alexis and her awesome family. :)
This weekend was so much fun! Thanks you guys!
P.S. My mom thought the title was “Meet- U P S” :) (like the store) haha. oh my gosh. She never ceases to amaze me. I love you mom!
