The Kirtsy Chicks hit Chicago for BlogHer 09 last weekend. It was the biggest and best BlogHer yet. Period. Exclamation point. Panels were pondered. Parties were rocked. Kirtsy Editors were met. Chocolate was blissfully given and received. Please enjoy a few photos and notes.

Saturday we tweeted out a chocolately meetup in the lobby at noon. Hershey’s came prepared with 400 bars of Bliss. Hershey’s know how to make friends.


Throughout the weekend we received approximately one billion thank yous for putting together the Hershey’s Kirtsy Party Alertsy. It was so helpful having all the info in one place. We personally referred to it at least 2 dozen times.


Friday night we met Kirtsy Editor, Angela. She rocked it on the dance floor at the MamaPop Party. And ate Unicorn Cake. Saturday evening we join Amy Turn Sharp for the chance to meet our famed Kirtsy-Editor-Abroad, Karey M. Her ensemble was stunning. No surprise really. She’s always finding the coolest things and sharing them on Kirtsy.


On Friday, we celebrated Kirtsy Partner, Gwen Bell’s Birthday and walked around the pretty city with The Bloggess. There were paparazzi issues.


We started the day at the Microsoft Microspa. Here we are having what looks like a very important discussion.We’re like that. Partying once second, having deep discussions about Nordstorm next.


That night, we went to dinner and ate the gorgeous birthday cake Gwen had made herself. Photo by BabyJi.


We can’t wait till next year. New York. Twice as big. Bring it.
