Again, I loved it and adopted this icon to be my own since I've been a Party Planning Goddess my whole life. As I started to study French I listened to how native French speaking people say the word "the" in English....more

Hi all, I'm new here.

Oh gee, I've started this first entry only about four times now. But wanted to get a picture up first.  I'm just looking for a place to connect I guess.

Thank you!more

My name is Monique and I'm a Conference Newbie.

I know I shouldn't be nervous. I know it will be fun. I know I will meet a lot of great people. And I know there will be lots of swag. Yet, for some reason, as every day nerves are getting the best of me. Maybe it's the idea of  walking into the unknown. Or it could be the fact that I haven't been called a "newbie" since the first day I walked into basic training. At least with the military, I watched an introductory video that explained everything from push ups to uniforms. ...more

LOL...thanks for the advice!! :) I can't wait to get there!more
