Are you traveling soon? (hello?! #blogher ladies!) This is a MUST DO!

Ok, I don’t want to put a damper on all of our planning fun for Blogher 09…yes, shopping for cute shoes and pretty dresses is fantastic fun, I’ll admit.  But there’s just a little something that you should do before head off to Blogher (aren’t you so excited?!  Me too!)

It only takes 10 minutes at the most.  What is it?  No, it’s not a waxing of your upper lip or eyebrows.  It’s not a do it yourself hair color or downloading must have music for that car trip to Chicago.

No, it’s creating a legal doc that tells the world exactly what should happen to your kids if something should, god forbid, happen to you!

This isn’t just for when you are traveling, but when a vacation or travel comes up, it’s a reminder to get your shit stuff in order. Don’t forget to check out these travel gear reviews to find what you need to make your traveling more comfortable.

This program, is so super easy and created by one of my Blogher sponsors, Alexis Martin Neely, a wonderful California attorney and mom-entrepreneur!  Here’ a bit more about this…read up then go make your own….NOW!

Kids Protection Plan
You know what your mama always told you…be sure to wear clean underwear!  In other words, be prepared!  And nothing is more true or more important than being prepared should something happen to you and/or your spouse.  You want to make sure that your wishes are carried through and that your children are taken care of…right?

Well, then you will want to head over to ASAP and take 10 minutes to create an easy-to-fill-out document that states who should get custody of your children should anything happen to you.  This isn’t just about if you die, but what if you were in the hospital for some time, who would take care of your children?  Be prepared!

I did this super simple process the other day and was amazed at how easy creator and attorney Alexis Martin Neely, makes it for parents to have a sound plan in place.  Alexis walks you through the process via video and with clearly written instructions. After 10 minutes I had a document all ready to print out and sign in front of witnesses and now my children and their well being, should anything happen to me, are covered!  Head on over to to get yourself covered too! Thanks Alexis!


Takes 10 minutes and is more important than any accessory, dress or lip color that you are contemplating on taking to blogher (and I know you’ve spent more than ten minutes thinking about that stuff, ladies! Me too ;) ).

P.S. Alexis is sending me to Blogher with 10 copies of her book, “Wear Clean Underwear: A Fast, Fun, Friendly (and essential) Guide to Legal Planning for Busy Parents”.  Be sure to come and find me for your copy!! Thank you Alexis!!
