Lastly, I think it goes without saying that I did lots of this:
I am now an expert on diabetes, thankyouverymuch.
Alright friends, I'm off to go get ready and then head to the convention center! I hope I get to meet Amanda Latona!!
I'll be catching up on all of your blogs, but quick; tell me some of the highlights of your week!
