I'm going to BEA! Are you?

Folks, it's been a tough decision this year. I battled with lots of feelings about taking a trip for myself again and NOT taking one with my husband this year.

Do we have enough money? No, not really.

Am I comfortable traveling alone? No, not really.

What if I'm pregnant? Well, that's not happening right now, no matter how hard we try. :(

So, I made the decision to just do it. Money be damned! (okay, the tax money helped a bit!) My husband is very supportive and we are planning on a mini camping trip for the summer, he and I. YAY!

So, I will be going Tuesday, May 24 through Saturday May 28. This is going to be completely 100% Red Headed Book Child meets NYC. Last year, i went with friends and we did a lot of NON book blogger stuff. This year I plan on maximizing all there is to do with tours, cocktail hours, dinners, etc!

I am planning on rooming with Stacy from A Novel Source. YAY! And I plan on hanging out with Steph from Steph the Bookworm. I am SO very excited to meet these ladies and have tons of fun in the Big Apple.

Are you going?

If so, what do you have planned?

Are you going alone? With other bloggers?

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

I am incredibly jealous that you are going. I would love to, but alas its not in the cards for me this year. I hope you have a fantastic time. I'm already looking forward to hearing all about it.

oh my gosh, super jealous too! I love New York! You're going to have a blast -- and you better tell us ALL about it!

I soooo want to go but I'm not sure that we're going to be able to pull it off this year. Plus, with whatever money we do have I plan on getting away to celebrate Jason's 30th b-day somewhere (maybe Vegas). So I'm still holding out hope that I'll come across some money in May, LOL, but I'll have to wait until then to see.

Nope. We're moving again this summer :) Last summer we moved 4 hours away. This time it's several states. Please take pictures and enjoy :)
