Is there a "green with envy" smiley? I just wasn't able to get my stuff together enough to commit at the last minute, but I so wish I could have been there.

Does anyone know if there is likely to be another conference in the future?

Yep - looks like there's going to be a 2010 conference! WOO HOO! Prelim plans are in the works now!! I can't wait for a formal announcement. I'm thinking it will be same place, roughly same time frame. I'm starting to sack away my moolah now, a little each month, so I will be good and ready!

She changed her mind about 5 minutes after it was over, when she saw the impact it had on people.

I spent most of the conference in tears myself. It was incredible.

I will definitely be attending the one in 2010.

This was my first conference, and I can't even tell you how much I learned!

Pama - I saw you a couple times too, but never got a chance to say hi, you were always deep in conversation.

I did get to take one of Reha's classes, which was great!

But I must say my favorite class of the weekend was Gail Hart on Gestational Diabetes. I felt like I could have sat there and discussed that with her for hours.

I met some wonderful, amazing women, made some great new friends. I'm very much looking forward to another one.

Cristeen, I realized after the conference was over that I don't think we ever met. Did we and I am just forgetting? Anyways, I'm glad you enjoyed my class. I was very worried about how it would turn out. I was very, very nervous.

LOL!

We sat in class afterwards (Informed Consent) and chatted for a few minutes. I introduced myself on Thursday, I believe, but you were a bit harried all weekend.

I totally was....especially on Thursday!

Ok, well, I probably remember you, just not your name. I'm so horrible at matching names to faces. I have a pretty good photographic memory.
