boy, are my feet tired

Yesterday was a fun day. I attended the first annual Colorado Women's Expo. I went with two friends who make any outing a fun one. Here's just a few things that made my day.

! Hearing Suze Orman speak. She is quite the speaker and it was great hearing her talk to women about money and taking charge of our lives financially. Very inspirational.

! Meeting a blogging friend. I had the privilege of meeting Amber of Crazy Bloggin' Canuck and Mile High Mamas. It wasn't exactly planned but I knew she was going to have a booth representing the Mile High Mamas site. So I made a point of finding it and there she was. It was so fun. The only bummer was that I had my friends take a picture of us two and it didn't turn out. Sorry Amber, and thanks for the short chit chat. It was a pleasure meeting you.

! Visited a booth showcasing some special chocolate that is actually healthy for you. Psssh, you say. It's true... at least that's what they say. It all has to do with the way it's processed - cold vs. heat - and a bunch of technical stuff I didn't understand. My friend is going to host a party to introduce this chocolate to anyone interested. I'm interested - and I'll be there, Bev.

! Had my wedding bands cleaned and boy, are they now shiny. I was amazed.

! Spent 10 minutes sitting against a vibrating pillow. Why? Because it felt soooo good =)

! Had my hands rubbed with some aloe lotion that cures everything from dry skin to scars to arthritis and warts. Huh?

! Met a world class photographer and spending over a half hour hearing about his world travels while drooling over his photos (oooohh, if only I were rich).

! Buying a special clip to attach to my cell phone so I can clip it to, well.... anything I want to! Seriously, I want to see how well it works clipped to my belt loop, or outside of my purse, or even my dashboard. I'll keep you updated.

! Had my our picture taken with three very cute firemen, who were collecting for charity. You see, it was all for a good cause =D

! Spending the day in the company of two wild and crazy ladies, and the conversations and laughter shared.

Perhaps a mixed blessing the picture didn't turn out? It was a wonderful suprise to meet you and boy, are my feet tired, too. :-)
