NBDCC 2012….The journey begins
I arrived in L.A. yesterday afternoon expecting to relax and settle in for a day before all the excitement began…..NOT. One thing I have learned about Barbiecon is that once you get there, you hit the ground running. I was very glad to see that many friends decided to arrive early so it was an afternoon and evening of hugs and quick catch-up on our lives conversations. There was also room shopping and of course I had to take my camera along and see what the goings on were. The Hyatt Orange County is a lovely hotel with some amazingly friendly and helpful staff.
It was time to catch up with Barbie buds…my friends Sheree and Susan
Then it was time to shop
And for all you vintage collectors out there….
It looks like my instant upload of photos is working! I have been able to instant upload to my flickr fairly consistently so I am encouraged it will continue to work well. I have to send out a HUGE “thank you” to my husband and in house technical support for getting this up and running for me. It was not the easiest thing to do and we had many trial and error moments yesterday
Here is a picture of the adorable key cards convention attenders receive
The pace will be fast and furious from here on out but I will try to blog everyday and multiple times a day if I can. If you want up to the minute photos without writeup, you should check my flickr. Will be enjoying the sites and sounds of the Magic Kingdom today but will be back with you all for an update this evening. More room shopping photos are available on my flickr account for those who are interested.
