Wonder Con 2014: Friday

I don't have any official news to announce that came out of Wonder Con, except that it was good to be HOME!  I was lucky enough to have two of my awesome San Diego Nerd Girls drive up to Anaheim with me and spend the day, we even did a cosplay theme, Doctor Who of course!
I was 9, in the middle is Lauren who was Rose and Brooke who was 11.  Since this has been one of many cons I have attended in the past year, it was nice to begin chatting with all my Twitter friends about "real" stuff and getting to know them better.  I love how it always feels like no time has pasted between the last time we saw each other. For some of my friends it has been since July others was October, but we are all still so close!
9 and his Companion!
As soon as we arrived at the con, it was like we were home!  I went to pick up my Press badge and it was super quick and we went to hit the floor and see some friends before a few panels.
After saying HI to these to lovely friends and vendors, I went up to my one and only panel of the day,"Animal Farm All Over Again."  My friend James Morris {Skybound Author} was on the panel along with one of my other favorite authors Kiera Cass who wrote The Selection series.  I loved the panel and kinda fan-girled out on her afterwards, getting her to sign my book made my day!
Also on the panel were Pierce Brown {Red Rising} and Amy Talkington {Liv, Forever} whose novels also sounded great and I cannot wait to check them out!

After my panel, I was happy to head to lunch with friends V from GB Reviews {who I had met before} and Michelle from Your Friend Elle.  The best part of any con for me is getting to meet my Twitter friends in real life!  We also had a surprise guest join us for lunch...
It was a treat to chat with the man behind the scarf and told him he HAS to be at SherlockeDCC pt 2!
After lunch I finally got to explore the rest of the exhibition floor and see pretty much everything and chat with more friends!  My favorite thing on the floor had to be the Mario Kart car you could sit in.  That game has been one of my favorites since the beginning.
When the hall finally closed, it was time to head over to the SDCC Unofficial Blog meet up!  I was super excited to see everyone again, since, like I said, it hadn't been since July or Comikaze! FIRST we ran into the AMAZING The Adventure Effect and I fell hard for their 10!  He was perfect and even did the accent!  They were all amazing you have to check them out!

You can see ALL of my Wonder Con 2014 pictures over on Facebook and TAG yourself if we had a picture together!  What was your favorite thing about Wonder Con...mine was that it got me totally PSYCHED for SDCC!  Cannot wait to see you all there!!
