Get to Know “A Cowboy’s Wife”

by Susan

Janice got to interview Lori (A Cowboy’s Wife) at BlogHer, but a few days later, I got to hang out with Lori and gab until the wee hours of the morning. I win! :)

It was the last night at the TJ Maxx/Marshalls Mommy Blogger Event and while most bloggers had flights that evening, a few of us flew out the next morning. So of course, instead of going to bed early, what did we do? We strolled around Boston and gabbed until we had almost no hours left to sleep.

Lori and I hung out with Allison from Petit Elefant and Jacqueline from Blessings Abound and had more fun than school-girls on a sleep-over.

I’m sure that Allison and Jacqueline would agree with me that one of the highlights of that night was learning about Lori’s fascinating life. From stories of her childhood to her current blogging success we were captivated. Lori is one impressive woman!

But, I’m not going to tell you those stories here, you’ll have to get to know Lori yourself… Start with this video interview…

You’ve likely already subscribed to her blogs, but just in case, here are the links…

Also, make sure you’re following her on Twitter.

Thanks Lori for being such an inspiration and for joining us for the best girls-night-out in Boston.

Thank you. It was so great to “get to know” Lori a little. I already subscribe to one of her blogs. She is amazing and so intelligent and pretty. You two make a good pair.
