I ran out of the house late today and was in a huge hurry, my watch stopped working days ago and I haven’t had time to get a new one. It didn’t need a battery. I replaced the battery last month. It’s been loosing minutes and I didn’t realize until last week, when someone was picking me up and I wasn’t ready. I’m typically on time. When I got int the car, I realized the time on the dashboard was twelve minutes later than I thought it was. Twelve minutes can seem like forever, especially when you are waiting for someone. Kelly is a great friend and she didn’t leave me behind.
I should have had some of these ready, they would have been perfect.
It was 7 am and neither one of us had eaten breakfast, we knew it was going to be a long day. We were going to Los Angeles to Blog World. If you are a blogger and have the opportunity to go to Blog World I’d recommend it. The next Blog World is in NY. It was very informative. We not only got to see people we already know and catch up, we met new friends like Ted Rubin and were filled with information from beginning to end. Great information from Seyd of WPbeginner. I even got to talk with Patty who is the Director of Business Development for Blog World and find out we are practically neighbors. It really is a small world.
These cupcakes would have been great, but then I would have been way later than twelve minutes.
