I have so many things to say about my time at the BlogHer12 conference in New York City two weeks ago – I don’t even know where to begin. I have a lot to say about BlogHer, but like I mentioned in this post last week, it is mostly stuff that happened because of BlogHer and not the actual conference itself.

Like the time I took a cab with Amy and Deb to Baby Cakes Bakery – supposedly the best cupcakes in New York City…and it turned out to be a vegan bakery. I don’t do vegan.

We threw them away. My red velvet cupcake tasted more like a piece of red cardboard.

Lesson learned: ask if a bakery is vegan before buying their baked goods. Especially if the cashier has a handlebar mustache.

There was some really fun stuff going on at BlogHer – especially in the Expo Hall, where there were tons of characters to have fun with.

This guy at the Gorton’s booth was all like, “Put a wheel on it” – a la Portlandia’s Put a Bird on It – and I did.

I was probably too excited for a woman to see the Lorax posing for photos Friday morning. What can I say, I am a total geek when it comes to anything to do with Dr. Seuss.

Oh, and the milk men booth in the Expo Hall? Yeah, I made time for a quick photo…

I also had drinks with friends on a rooftop bar not too far from our hotel. It was so fun to meet the ladies that I chat with online every day! Here I am with Jessica and Janice!

Oh, and that cute little piggy? That’s KiPA, Annie’s little mascot!

Thanks to Annie of MamaDweeb.com for taking this photo!

And then I got to go to a Hallmark event with my friend Annie and see their new line up of goodies for the holidays, like this adorable little Bell – she’s the new interactive storybook plush. She’s Jingle’s friend! I am hoping to be able to give one away to my readers for this Christmas!

I also went on a fun walking tour with Stumble Upon. I wasn’t able to stay for the entire thing because I had an invitation to the Iconix Event, but it was fun to see Radio City Music Hall and Rockafeller Center and learn some information with the tour guide!

The event I didn’t want to miss? The Iconix Event!

On my way back from this tour is where I took my favorite photo from the entire NYC trip – just a simple black and white photo of a side street. This is what I think of when I think NYC…

We actually went and had dinner at Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse later that night – and the food was wonderful!

Every time I look at that photo, I want to plan another trip to New York City. You know, the totally touristy type with visits to Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, seeing shows on Broadway, shopping in SoHo…

Who wants to come along?
