The BlogHer conference is coming up once again, and this time it’s in Chicago!  Last year, I had never been to New York, NY prior to the conference, and had an amazing time touring a bit of the city while getting to know some fabulous bloggers at the conference.

And now Chicago, again a city I won’t yet stepped foot into before; TV-land’s home of my heros Mike & Molly (if it had actually filmed there, I would probably be sprucing up my stalking abilities right about now, lol.) 😀  Chicago is chock-filled of incredible sites and culture and food, and I can’t wait to see it all first hand.

That’s why I’m so excited to be able to go on a Fireworks Seadog Cruise on the day I travel in! I love fireworks and was so miffed that I had no choice but to miss them over May 2-4 weekend, and now I’ll get to view some gorgeous lights after cruising along Lake Michigan and getting a sense of Chicago’s history along the lakefront in a massive speedboat! How awesome is that?? Also? Seadog Cruises has graciously offered me and 74 other bloggers a ticket to this event, so you can bet we’ll all be tweeting and facebooking it up that night.  Might even do a Vine video of the fireworks, how cool would that be?  Eee! Can’t wait!

Now what should I wear?  The cruise will be an hour long, and there are seats, so I don’t have to worry about what shoes to wear I guess.  Will it be cool enough that I’ll want a sweater?  Will it lead to a party where I want to be a bit dressed up?  Decisions, decisions!

Here’s some info I was given from Seadog Cruises to share with you!
