Camp Mighty and My Life List / by Leslie

Last year I wrote about how I was inspired by the Mighty Summit without even being there. I made my own life list and I promised myself that one day I would either be invited to the Mighty Summit, buy a ticket to a similar event open to the public or I would host my own with my friends. As luck would have it, the organizers, Maggie Mason of Mighty Girl and Laura Mayes of Blog Con Queso have created a brand new, but similar, event for which 150 tickets were available called Camp Mighty. My friend Jill (from Terra Savvy) and I did not waste any time snagging our tickets, which was a good thing because the event sold out in six days. 

On November 10th, we will be flying from NYC to Palm Springs to stay at the Ace Hotel and hang out with some spectacular people! To say we are excited is a gross understatement. I'm already planning outfits and shopping and I need business cards and I made a Twitter list and I can't wait to meet all the talented and inspiring people that are going to be there like Leah from A Girl and a Boy and Nicole from Making It Lovely. It's possible I will embarrass myself with my enthusiasm. I've done that before. I wore a cowboy hat in London, and my friend Regina said I looked like a tourist, and I was like, I AM a tourist. Please forgive me in advance for my enthusiasm! Also, the Camp Mighty logo matches my blog header. How cool is that?

In preparation I updated my Life List. I added some things, took some things off and I decided to include stuff that I did long before I had a life list. I've always set goals for myself and felt proud of achieving them, I'm also a "completist" (that is not a word, but I like it) so I think it's nice to have all the fun things that I've already done on there as well.

If you are also going to Camp Mighty (YAY for you!), I totally can't wait to meet you. Please a comment and your twitter handle and I will add you to my list. We can get to know each other a little before we even get there. If you are not able to make it this year, I promise there is lots to learn from a far if you watch the blogs and twitter streams of those attending. At least you can write your own life list and if you post it, please leave a link to that as well. I'd love to see it and who knows, maybe I will get an idea or two to add to my own list!
