I ordered no fewer than five toilets, but had the good sense to have them delivered to Home Depot instead of my house.

An Awesome BlogHer '10 from a New Yorker's Point of View

New York, New York -- it's a helluva town, and last weekend it was a helluva BlogHer town. If I must say so myself, I thought New York did a first class job of hosting the biggest gathering of women bloggers in the world, but as a native New Yorker, I'm biased. From the Battery to the Bronx, BlogHers were all around the town, taking in all the Big Apple had to offer.
