This weekend is the big Casual Blogger Conference. Since it is so close to where we live, my husband wouldn't let me pass it up. So I will be joining hundreds (thousands?) of ladies and men in listening to some awesome speakers like DeNae Handy, Courtney Kendrick, and Sue Marchant. It's even better that I actually know these ladies.
I know that hundreds of people will be fighting to meet me, so I decided to introduce myself. Virtually.

Hi, I'm Amber. Thanks to a recent cold, my voice now sounds like a deeper version of Phoebe's sexy voice on friends. I have dark blond hair and a smile that is permanently etched on my face (i.e. I have premature wrinkles). Miss Flow's recent visit left a few unwanted visitors on my face that I hope will disappear before the conference. If they don't, well, they don't. I am somewhere between small and average in waist size; although, this is covered up by healthy servings in the rear and chest area.
When I'm nervous, I talk extra fast, giggle extra hard, and say extra embarrassing things. I also blush easily. If you still can't recognize me, look for the lady with the extra red face.
I have an above average case of momnesia. In mid sentence I may stop, look around with a confused expression, and start talking about something entirely unrelated. Conversations may be choppy or silly but I do have something up my sleeve: I will be holding a cute baby. Theoretically, this provides you an easy out in any awkward or confusing conversations we might have. I can't guarantee it, but it's worth a try.

Since this is a special occasion, I might actually do my hair. I can't make promises but I think my blow dryer and straightener will see the outside of the cupboard more this weekend than they have since my husband bought them for me. I may even wear earrings, makeup, and some shirts that do not have stains on them. Since this may be pushing it, I am once again relying on Andrew's extra cuteness to save me. Heck, maybe he will share some of his cuteness with me.
There you have it. See you at CBC '10!!
