So, BlogHer 2011. We survived! WHEE! I am still here hanging out with tiny gramma and my sister who drove down to meet me from Utah. Baby on the beach. It will happen.
(Um, some people in the comments seem to think that touching a strangers baby is A-OK. This shall be a topic of further debate, feel free to weigh in over there.)
Yesterday a couple of people admitted to being absolutely sure I didn’t like them when I first met them. This makes me sad. Because I didn’t meet a single person this weekend that I didn’t like. In fact I enjoyed being around all of you. Yes, even that girl. So if you got the impression that I didn’t like you? IT WAS ALL A LIE! I think I have a naturally grumpy looking face so, sorry about that. Hugs and kisses next time we see each other?
I’d be remiss not to mention my lovely and adorable sponsor for BlogHer ’11. I’m not sure how I was lucky enough to come across them but the company is Perinka and they make adorable baby items, clothing and AMAZING stroller liners.
But Casey? How can a stroller liner be amazing? Well let me tell you how a stroller liner can be amazing.
A) I have a very sweaty baby. VERY sweaty. (Wrote about sweaty baby here!) and with the Perinka stroller liner behind her there were no sweaty baby episodes. As I said on twitter, sweaty babies rarely make good impressions.
B) It’s super pink and girly. Which means my girly baby was recognized as a girl far more often in her brown and black stroller. Not that it matters if someone calls your baby a boy when she’s actually a girl or that you even have gender specific items for your baby, long story short I LIKE IT AND IT’S CUTE. (There are at least a dozen patterns/colors available.)
C) When it comes time for her to nosh on crackers and assorted round cereals there will be no crumbs smashed into where the seat meets the back. Not to mention if there is ever a poonami? SO MUCH EASIER to clean the stroller liner than the whole entire stroller.
D) I hadn’t thought of this, but someone at the conference pointed it out, a stroller liner is a great way to make an older stroller new again, give twins each a unique look to their side of the stroller or fancy up an existing stroller for a new baby.
E) The thing is PLUSH. And SOFT. I’m not ashamed to admit that I wanted to kick the baby out of the stroller so I could sleep in it. But I didn’t. Ten gold stars to me.
You can get 10% off with the code ‘CASEY’ at Perinka and shipping is always free on purchases over $100. Since they are a new company they’re also giving away an iPad 2.

We’re off to Balboa Park to bond and enjoy the marvelous weather down here. Hope you’re well. xo
