Chicago Regrets!

Things I regret about Chicago:

*That I carried my camera around, but decided to rely on my friends pics (which are wonderful btw and thank you so much for sharing!)... BUT I really wish I had my own.

*That I didn't get to spend more one on one time with you. I think I was able to get to everyone to meet them, say hello, and hug... but I wish I had more time to talk. Those of you I did have the privilege of spending time with... well, it's true that everyone was as fabulous (and even more) than they are on their blogs. I enjoyed our conversations so much, and our bands gave us a bond, but it was even more amazing to learn about your lives and personalities... some things aren't possible on a computer. However, I do have to agree that everyone was exactly as I thought they'd be. It felt amazing and natural. A true sisterhood in every sense.

*That some of you couldn't make it. I promise that those who weren't there, were truly missed. We did toast to you, and openly expressed our desire for you to be there with us.

*That I can't remember some of it... ;)

*That I need sleep (unlike some of you energizer bunnies). I can not even believe I was worried that no one would want to let loose. Umm... yeah... that's obviously not a problem.

*That I had to go back to work today.

I'd say that this was a once in a lifetime event for me, however I think I'd move heaven and earth to do it again, WHEN the next opportunity comes around. From my perspective, I think every BOOB who was there, wouldn't miss the next one for the world... and our BOOBs (events) are only going to get bigger!

I've learned my lessons, and next time I will have NO regrets!

  4. It was so great to meet you! I called your cell earrrly Sunday morning but didn't get an answer, so I figured you were heading to the airport a little later. I hope your trip went smoothly, and i can't wait to see you again at BOOBS 2.0!

  7. Hi there! I am a new follower (and new bandster as well!) I couldn't make BOOBS, because I was busy having my surgery :) Sounds like you had a fabulous time, and hope to be able to meet you at the next one!

  13. Lara... I'm with you! Had my camera & didn't use it enough at ALL, except on that darn architecture cruise. Wish I'd had more time with my BOOBs! 19 hours in Chicago was like the biggest tease ever!
    You look FABULOUS, woman. Those pics on the side don't do you justice. Remember those old "Virginia Slims" cigarette adds? "You've come a long way, baby!" :)
    Hope to get to spend more time at BOOBs 2011!
    Blessings,
    Robin at Band on the Run
