I’ve never been to Chicago.

An environment where it’s not taboo to talk about money?

Don’t tempt me.

Autographs? That’s totally worth the $89 price. I have my reg. filled out and am giving myself 5 minutes to decide…I think it’s worth it, especially as a blogger newbie… I’ve never been to a conference like this and I will be going solo. (Deep breath).

what a great idea! i hope it takes off and becomes a regular thing.

ooh i’m jealous! it would be so interesting to be around people who understand why i keep all of my receipts. haha. i think you guys going on your own are very brave, too–Ruby, i’m lookin’ at you. Since i am anonymous, it would just be so trippy to introduce myself as ‘Sense’ and have all these people (OK, like 3 people, but you know what I mean) know about my life when I’ve never met them in real life!!

@Ruby – Wonderful!!! It’s our very first conference, so we’ll all be new there ;) And as soon as you find the guy w/ the mohawk, you go right up to him and he’ll keep you company and make you feel at home. Promise :)
@MainlineMom – Looking forward to being there in better weather too! Been twice my entire life (in past 4 months, actually) and it was not the most pleasant out ;) This should be much better!
@TJ – Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!
@Philip – As long as you’ve got a beer in one of those hands ;)
@Kathryn C – GREAT!!! See you there :)
@Sense – You should show up to REALLY make TJ feel bad, haha… All the way from New Zealand, you’d be a hit! (and I hope it continues year after year too – I have a sneaking suspicion it will. so you’ll have plenty of time to make it back ;))

I’m signed up, J.

I’m going to be cornering everybody at the social events and demanding that they talk with me about Safe Withdrawal Rates.

That’s a joke!

I REALLY want to go to this, too! Chicago is quite the little trek from my little ranch in Kansas, though. :(
