Allume is being held in Greenville, SC which apparently is super busy the weekend of the conference so all the rooms got booked. Several attendees had to pair up in rooms. Becky and I got paired with a pair of ladies we don’t know but I’m excited to meet. It’ll be like summer camp!
Today we’re all sharing a few things our roommates should know—but I hope everyone can learn something new today.
First, y’all should know we’re partying in my home state! I live less than 2 hours away, just south of Charlotte, NC. But my home is in South Carolina. I know, it’s a little confusing. I never know whether to say I’m from Charlotte since that’s what everyone would know but it’s not even in the same state I actually live in. Anywhoo, I’m super proud to live here. Greenville is one of our lovely cities and I think everyone will fall in love!
This is my second year at Allume. Last year was both wonderful and overwhelming. I roomed with Mary, Amanda and Mandy. Mary and Mandy won’t be there this year since Mary is pregnant and Mandy just had a baby. Amanda is speaking this year!
I’m an introvert. That means a lot of things. Here’s a list of 23. That might mean you’ll come in the room during the day and find me crying. While I LOVE conferences, I get overwhelmed. It’s ok. I just need a minute to get it out and then I’ll be fine.
On the flip side, I do well in small groups so I might be a chatter box in the room. Especially at night. I love late night girl talks and if I know me and Becky like I think I do, it will be tough to get me to be quiet before sleeping.
However, I’m on East Coast time and I’m usually zonked by 10pm. You probably won’t find me out late at the parties and even if I’m talking, I’ll like the lights out earlier than later.
I love chocolate and coffee. If you can’t find me, look near the dessert tables first.
But I am gluten-free, so I can’t eat most of the goodies. I’ll be scouring for M&Ms.
When I travel, I’m a neat-freak so you won’t find my stuff scattered over the room. But, it won’t bother me if yours is. I have two kids and messes don’t scare me.
Speaking of my kids, I have two girls that are 8 and 10 so you might find me Facetiming them in the afternoons. I also like my husband pretty well. We just celebrated our 15th anniversary this month.
I rub my feet together before I go to sleep. Sorry if that’s weird.
I don’t care whether I shower in the morning or evening.
But I’ll need some breakfast before I can communicate well.
I do this What I Wore Wednesday post every week so I might ask you to take my picture.
I love writing but my favorite thing about blogging is the connections with people. That means I’m super excited to meet everyone and I just know we’ll have a great time!
You can meet more attendees here!
