Conference is booked...Houston here I come!

So it's official, I'll be going to my first NAAF conference this year. I'm excited. I booked everything this past weekend while I was home. So how about it? Who else is going to be there?

The only thing I'm not 100% thrilled about is going by my self. I can't really see anyone else in my family giving up time from work though, so I better be meeting some of you guys down there and hanging out.

But yeah overall I'm excited and can't wait. Especially since college is so hectic right now. Thoughts of summer and looking forward to things like this is all that is getting me through.

Drew, I'm in the same boat as you, I'm going alone too, I think there are several people going alone, but don't you worry, we're a fun group. There's a "young adult" group that has people aged around 18-late 20's, somewhere around in there. You'll have to hang out with us, we're nice, fun, and a little wild at times. =)
I'm also in the same boat as you with college right now!It's SOOO hectic. Barely any time to breath, and the weather is such a tease day I think Spring is here in full force and the next day I'm wearing a coat with my flip flops. So, hang in there...conference is SO worth the wait. It'll be so much fun!!! =)

Hey, Drew! Ashley (My conference BFF) is right! This will be my 4th conference and I am finally glad to be going alone! Going with family/friends makes it harder because you feel like you need to entertain them. When really what you should be doing is hanging out with US! Because we're AWESOME! Make sure you sign up/go to all the 'young adult' stuff! There's a dinner Thursday night and a support session one of the days. We'll see you there!!

Hey Drew! Congratulations. I am sure you will have a great time and by the time you leave will wonder why you thought for a second that you would be "alone". A hotel with possibly over 700 people with alopecia! You will be taking to people in hallways, elevators, bathrooms ;). Not to mention all the people you already know from the site will be tracking you down ;).

Please, if anyone is attending the conference be sure to list your name on the Alopecia World Event calendar, so we can all find each other.

Ahh you will only be alone till you get to the Hotel Lobby. I go "Alone" every year. But then I land and my phone is already ringing "Were are you?" And now that you know Ashley, Melissa and I. I'm pretty sure you will have fun. I do believe there is a big group of new people going this year so you be in good hands. Just keep your eye out for the bald chicks they get a bit wild!!

Hi Drew,

Sorry I missed this Blog post.
I went by myself last year and wasn't alone for a minute.
You will have a blast!!!
See you there.
