Roommates! New fave writer friend, Casey McCormick, and CP extraordinaire, Carolina Valdez Miller, were my roomies and--let me tell ya--we had the best time! I haven't laughed as hard as we did late night like that in a long time! (Long gray hair, or curly, or poetry... hehehe, you just had to be there. Trust me.)
The view from our room!
Shannon Messenger! We hung out the whole time and I heart her! She rocks the exact same personality in real life as she does online and I'm still sad we live on opposite sides of the country.
The roomies and I went to breakfast with fellow writers Sherrie Petersen (Write About Now) and Shelli Johannes Wells (Market My Words). Lovely time and lovely eggs benedict!!
Kimberly Derting, one of my favorite authors (seriously, if you haven't read The Body Finder yet, what is wrong with you?), and I rode the same shuttle to the hotel. Little did she know I'd be stalking her the entire conference! JK (kinda). Turns out, Kim's super sweet and I had an absolute blast with her!
Kiersten White. She. Is. Awesome. (JUST like her book, Paranormalcy... just sayin') So kind in person and extremely sociable. I tried not to go too fangirl, but I'm not quite sure I succeeded... She was there with Stephanie Perkins who's just as fun, but I forgot to take a picture with her, sigh. Oh wait--you can see her freaking awesome hair in the background over my shoulder! Does that count? No? Hm. Okay fine.
At the Golden Kite Luncheon!
Karen Amanda Hooper like whoa! She ditched us for RWA, but of course we had to snap a picture with her anyway =)
here's a hint.)
Heather Trese and Jessica Love! Seriously wish I'd been able to hang out with these chicks more. Oh and in case you're wondering why there are sweaters in a California summer picture--it was freaking COLD!!
Jennifer Aniston (my fantasy bff) and Brad's old house!!
Okay, so I have a ton more photos, but this would turn into the never-ending post of all posts if I put them all here! Instead, they're on Facebook, so come visit and check them out if you want!
