Blissdom 2010 Recap

Monday, February 8, 2010

I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what to say about Blissdom. My head is still kind of spinning…not from booze mind you…but from trying to process the things I learned and the conversations I had with the amazing women I met…okay, okay, and I did have a glass of wine or two :).  Take a look.

I had a great dinner Friday night with Layla (The Lettered Cottage) and Sarah (Thrifty Decor Chick). They are just too cute (and smart) for words.

I goofed around Saturday night in downtown Nashville with Sarah and Centsational Kate. And I’m sorry, but three fun gals, fried pickles dipped in ranch dressing, live music and line dancing = one heck of a good time. Although, I was winded after one song. Me thinks I need to hit the treadmill…especially after eating “fried pickles”.




Are we not the biggest goofs you’ve ever seen?

I couldn’t resist taking this shot of one tall drink of water with two southern babes on his arm(s). I have no idea who the man or babes are, but they seemed to be on their way to Sbarro :).


All in all, it was a lot of fun – and I promise to be done talking about it because who wants to hear about how much fun someone had at a party without them?

Oh, and if you want to see me be a complete goof of a dork in a video (and who wouldn’t want to see that?) head on over to The Lettered Cottage for a hilarious video. Does anyone else watch themselves in a video and think “Ew, do I really look like that? Is that how I sound?” Just checkin’ :).

Girl - it looks like you had a crazy good time at BlissDom! I was surprised at how much fun I had. I was expecting it to be more business. I LOVED it. It was such a pleasure meeting you too!
