    Hi Karen,

    Welcome back! I remember you from my first SU in Houston in 2008!  

    Jami and I will be sending out much more information in the next week or so. For now, we have your registration info. You have the dates and the place. :)

    Do you have any other specific questions?



  • In reply to Akeelah's Mommy:

    Thanks Lauren.  I am really trying to make this happen this year.  My family lives in Chandler-Gilbert area and I'm going down next weekend to see my new nephew.  I think I can justify the expense of seeing my family again as well as catching up with some friends!  

  • So looking forward to seeing everyone.  


  • In reply to DNASMOM:

    Karen- long time!!  I don't think any other info is posted yet- but I'm sure it's coming down the pipeline in the next week or two.  So nice to see you here!! The new format does take some getting used to- there will be workshops at SU on it!  :). And of course James is still around!  :)


  • In reply to Hunter and Randi's Mom:

    Share anymore but still keep in touch with many

    Of you. I need more info!  Sorry I'm not used to this new format yet and I'm still

    kind of old school.  James SooHoo still around?  I need help!  Lol

    Lindsay - please say it cools down for September :).  Dry heat is good I guess, at least my hair won't frizz, but 108 - yikes!  I don't think I've ever been in 108 degree temperatures. I complain when it's over 90 here in NY (but of course I complain when it's cold in the winter too, so I guess I just complain a lot ;))

    Regardless of the temperature, I am super excited for SU!  (and I can always stay in the air conditioning).

    Can't wait to see everyone!


  • Hello fun seekers! Just a little update. We are now just 90 days away until SU 2014! Today, the high in Phx was 108, but remember that it's a dry heat:)


  • In reply to Hunter and Randi's Mom:

    Woot!  Woot!!!!  I'm coming!!!  Excited about getting to see a new city!

  • In reply to Hunter and Randi's Mom:
