Heading to the Haven Conference

I haven't had a chance to post about this yet, but please don't let that take away from my level of excitement for this event. Tomorrow I will be flying to Atlanta to attend the Haven Conference, a conference dedicated to DIY, home decorating, renovating enthusiasts. I am absolutely, positively delighted to be attending this conference!

I'll be going on behalf of my company, Homes.com, as we are a sponsor of the event.  How cool is that? I get to go to this DIY blogger conference, meet some amazing ladies who I stalk admirably online, learn painting & stain techniques, home decor tips, etc. and it's a part of my JOB?! Yup, I'm pretty lucky {insert fake puking face with finger in mouth now} ;)

The conference will be taking place at Crowne Plaza in Atlanta and we have a jam packed schedule with some amazing speakers {including a keynote from the amazingly talented John & Sherry from Young House Love, giggles}.

What I'm Packing:
As I said earlier, I'm going on behalf of my employer Homes.com. The main color for our company is orange, which happens to be in style this summer. So at the Haven Conference I'll be rocking some serious orange!!

Here's an outfit I already shared with you guys and beside it is another outfit I got {Disclaimer: I will not be blinding you all with wearing the jacket and capri together, sorry to disappoint. These will be warn as separates and no, the tank top was not purchased.}

During the day I'll be rocking the Homes.com branded orange polo (getting the theme here) but the clothes above will be brought out during the evening festivities. Vibrant colors are really "in" this summer and orange fits the bill. So if you're looking for me, I'll be the one in the extra "pop" of color. ;)

People I'm super excited to meet:
Julie from Hooked On Houses
Rhoda from Southern Hospitality (lots of emails with this classy lady, but never met her in person!)
Kate from Centsational Girl
Traci from Beneath My Heart (she seems so friendly and down to earth)
Kerry from HouseTalkN (this girl has an awesome since of humor)
Pam from PBJ Stories (she lives in the Hampton Roads area, but I'll be meeting her in Atlanta LOL)
Staci from Not Just a Housewife (a co-worker met her at SNAP & said she's they sweetest darn thing)
Kim from Sand and Sisal (work with her sister, if she's as cool as Beth we're going to have a good time!)
Alison from House of Hepworths
Gail from My Repurposed Life (follow her on Facebook, this girl is like a MACHINE)
Layla (and maybe Kevin) from The Lettered Cottage
Tauni from the SNAP Conference (this gal is just super awesome & I can't wait to meet her in person)
and so many, many more!!

If you're going, be sure and stop by the Homes.com booth or seek me out at the sessions. I'll be the one sporting orange & typing fast and furious on my iPad so I can absorb all the goodness! ;)

Also, be sure to follow me on Twitter!
