Actually 12-5 is registration - no one will be there before 12. A bunch of us that were there tonight got all the registration packets finished, the AWESOME Vera Bradley bags that everyone will get all ready, tshirts, etc - dealt with a drunk guy in the bar now having some dinner!! Can't wait to see you tomorrow!

Boo! When I went down there at 6, some lady told me that they will do early registration from 8-12.

And that was on my 3rd trip down there! LoL! I'll just wait until around 2. I have to pick up Tara from the airport, then we will be there!

LoL! I came in at 2:45, then again at 4, and again at 6......they kept telling us to come back later.

I met a couple people upstairs, Eugene & Cheryl. They were really nice. I sat and talked with them outside Hamilton Hall, and Eugene told me that he had been at a convention before, but this was her first time. He said that he didn't do online sweeps though, only snail mail. It was a fun chat!!!!!

Is Vera Bradley big where you are from? It's pretty HUGE here......especially since they are local. They have huge outlet type sales at the Coliseum, and people start lining up HOURS ahead of time for it! It's amazing to see!!!
