I'm so excited! In 2 days, we'll be leaving to go to Tyson's Corner, Virginia for our 2nd BlogPaws convention!! We're going to reunited with all our BP friends, and take classes to learn a ton of new stuff!
This year, we just get to go as a participant! Last year, we co-taught a class on "The Power of YouTube" along with Lauren (and Paige) and Eldad Haagar (from Hope for the Paws). It was such a great experience!! We really wanted to go back!
Last year, Jasmine also won an award for the "Best Video" for her Santa Paws- Santa's Little Helper video!
She was nominated again this year for a different therapy dog video (Jasmine visits the Elementary School) , so it will be fun to see what happens! They have a big formal banquet dinner/ award cerimony on Saturday night. For me, it's just fun to be a part of the whole experience. And since I'm no longer the newbie, I kind of know what to to do this year! LOL. (Last year when Jaz won, we had to go up on stage and give an acceptance speech.) I was TOTALLY unprepared for that, because I didn't think there was any chance of us winning! This year, even if we don't win, at least I know it's a possiblity, so I won't be so blindsided! LOL
I'm excited to just go and enjoy ourselves! (No stress!) (Well, other than traveling with a dog!)
I'm kind of nervous about that. Jaz has flown with me a lot- for different TV shows and conventions. But this will be the first time we have a lay-over. :( We couldn't take a direct flight because Jasmine only fits under the seats of Delta airlines. And they don't fly directly to Washington DC. So, I had the choice to go without Jaz. (But come on... what's the point?) ;) Or travel with Jaz- trying our luck on a connecting flight. (Let's just keep our fingers crossed there are no delays.)
Traveling with a dog is always an adventure! But... once we get there, it's going to be GREAT! :)
Look out BLOGPAWS... ready or not... here we come!! ;)
