I had decided to do a few separate post talking about EVERYTHING to do with my time at AAD2010. But I have been so busy lately, I haven't had time to read, review, breathe, let alone do any post! Sooooo I am doing one GIGANTIC post of everything! Well, maybe not gigantic, but I wont make it terribly long because I don't have a lot of time, But it really was a blast and you guys so missed out! *covers up a snicker* But you def don't want to miss next year, It is going to be even better than this year!

For starters FREAKIN ROCK!!! Stella ran around like a chicken with her head cut off the entire time, making sure everything was perfect for everyone. Hunnie, you succeeded in my eyes!!

I was so excited to meet my roommate, who is one of my favorite blogger / twitter / personal designer peeps that i talk to online almost everyday *big grin* You KNOW I'll share photo love! And she is:

 Robin AKA Intense Whisper

The Awesome Robin met me at the airport thursday evening, after waiting 2 extra long hours for me to arrive late due to horrible weather and the temporary closing of Newark airport. I was also greated by Annie of Etopia Press (gaaa who I realized I never got a pic of) who was just plain sweet! Robin and I were supposed to go to a BLOGGER ONLY party as soon as we got to the hotel but *sniffles* we missed the party due to my plane delay. I sawwwwwwie Robin! But we did get to go to dinner with Annie, and spend the evening picking her brain about running / owning a publishing business, and chatting back and forth about books!

We all got these really KEWL name Badges

Then Friday - Saturday blew by like the breeze! So much went on,and all at once, that I can't recall 1/2 of what we did!! There were Awesome Lunches and Dinners, and everytime we went in to eat everybody had a stack of books sitting in front of them on the table. Plus there were books being given away right and left, And on Saturday was the open signing, and we got the opportunity to get our books signed!
My signed books

There were a TON of awesome panels, one which I can't remember the topic, but I got to see:

There is just so much I want to share with you guys, but my brain is just not working. So maybe I will end up doing another post. Cause really So much good stuff! All the bloggers got the opportunity to grab some of the extra books to use as giveaways on our blogs. I didn't get to grab as much as I would have like for you guys because of my lack of space in my suitcase but i did manage to grab a few! So here are the pics of the books I came home with. I manages to mail myself and stuff in my suitcase , and win 83 books! (click pics for larger views)








And last but not least some goodies I got just for you guys!!!






I hope you all enjoyed my post! I can't wait till next year, I'm already planned! I hope to get the chance to meet some of you next year!

SO cool-- I wish I could have been there. You are much taller than I pictured you. LOL Okay, so I'm only 5 foot and everyone looks tall but still! So, did Larissa have a really cool accent? Robin looks very nice like I knew she would be:) Actually, everyone looked so friendly and nice. I'm not gonna lie though, Percy looked pretty dang freaky-- Yikes! Thanks for sharing the cool pics:)

Larissa {Larissa's Bookish Life} September 30, 2010 at 10:59 PM  

Awesome post!!! Since my books are still in my luggage I wanna do a post like this when I get home in a couple weeks LOL

It was awesome meeting you!!!

Hey Jojo! Love the post. Seriously, did you end up with 83 books!? I had 53 I think. Cannot wait until next year.

Thanks Larissa for that Dear blogger's name. Was driving me nuts!

Victoria October 1, 2010 at 2:14 AM  

WOW! It looks like you had a great time. I can't imagine winning 83 books. They all look like goodies too. Thanks for the great post.

Stephanie Julian October 1, 2010 at 6:59 AM  

JoJo, it was great to finally meet you and I'm so glad you had a good time. Next year, Philadelphia!

Hi JoJo,

It was SO great meeting you, Robin, and Larissa at AAD. Loved your beautiful cape during the masquerade party btw. :)
I can't wait till next year either; it's going to be a blast in Philly. Hope to see you there!

Tanya October 1, 2010 at 10:19 AM  

YAY!! What a fantastic post!! It was so, so nice to meet you - and everyone else! Next year I need to get on the ball quicker, and maybe even arrive earlier, to have more time to talk with you!

And look at all your freaking stash you brought back! I can't believe how many goodies you got!! Whoo-hoo!

Have a great weekend, JoJo! *hugs*

Jacquelyn Frank October 1, 2010 at 10:28 AM  

It was so good meeting you, Tall Girl! ;) I remember your name now, but that weekend was so freaking crazy I couldn't find my ass with both hands! I love your Goodreads list, many of my favorites...although it could be *ahem* a little better. ;)

Thanks for blogging about AAD!!! Looking forward to seeing you next year!
