Blissdom 2013

I came, I saw/heard, and conquered.
Blissdom 2013
I've always wanted to go to a blogging conference.  They always seem to be on the East or West coast, so I was thrilled to find out Blissdom was going to be here in DFW this year!  Of course I had to go because it was so close.  I got to meet so many fabulous gals I talk to online in person.  It was awesome!  Everyone was so nice and I had a great time.
Here are my roomies Lindsey, Leah, and Heidi
These girls were so much fun!  We stayed at the fabulous Gaylord Texan.  I've always enjoyed staying there and it's a great place for conferences and events.  The rooms and service are wonderful.
 Our room
 View from our balcony into the atrium
 Goodies from my wonderful sponsor Milo Paper!
(If you didn't get some of these pretties from me at Blissdom you can still use coupon code "BLISSDOM" for 40% off & go like their Facebook site!)  Thank you Milo Paper & Picture Keeper for sponsoring me.  If I got your blog card I'll be drawing a few winners for a PK4 Picture Keeper too!
 Meeting some of my favorite bloggers :-)
Heading to the handmade marketplace.  Very cute stuff in there.  Megan and I got sparkly bracelets from The Shine Project.

 Registering for the weekend
 One of my fave DFW bloggers Meagan
We then headed out to dinner for some yummy Mexican at the Gaylord.  Thank you so much Polka Dot Posies for dinner and wonderful conversation and laughs.  You.are.awesome.

 Night in sponsored by Bissell

 Sweet ladies with their Milo Paper notepads :-)
After the Bissell event all the sponsor booths opened & that was a lot of fun!
 Duck Tape dress and shirt/jacket like on Project Runway
 Famous Footwear and yummy cupcakes
 Johnson & Johnson gave us lots of goodies for our babies back home.
 We got lots of goodies from all the sponsors at Blissdom
 Hair and makeup lounge in the One2One suite
 Mandy getting her makeup done.
Me after my makeup & eyelashes.  I have never had eyelashes put on and I forgot about them until I thought I was losing hair in the shower the next day!

 Blissdom had some great motivational speakers
 The Gaylord atrium

 I cannot wait until Despicable Me 2 comes out!  Can't wait to take Connor!
 I won some Coach perfume at the Ebates booth woohoo!
My favorite breakfast was sponsored by Seattle's Best Coffee.  This giant coffee mug was so much fun!  Their new blended iced coffee was amazing!
 Whip it!
I picked up Megan at the airport.  She is so precious....and not to mention she is Mama to the cutest twinsies ever.  Her plane got struck by lightening and then I think I may have freaked her out a little bit driving in Dallas....but it was fun spending time with you Megan!!!  I'm sad I didn't get to say goodbye, but glad we got to have a fun weekend together :)
 Yummy Sbarro pizza
Thank you Blissdom gals for a great weekend and fun memories.  ALWAYS a good time and I think I just about saw everything besides having to leave early due to a sick kiddo and hubby with food poisoning....yeah he hasn't been out of bed all day.  Fun times. 
It's been real....until next time!
DFW loves you come back soon!

I laughed so hard that you forgot about the eye lashes! Hilarious! I had SUCH a fun time with you and Leah-- what great roomies! So glad we got to meet in person, and hope it's not too long before we see each other again!

Meagan said...

Oh man...I'm so jealous of all your photos! I should have carried my camera around after all! :) I loved getting to spend so much time with you! I hope there's a DFW blogger get-together soon! Also...I hope your boys feel better soon!

Glad you had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed time with great bloggers. I wish I could have gone, but now that I've got shingles, I'm in worse shape than what I started. Oh well, maybe next time. Get well wishes for Hubby + Lil' Man, hope they feel better FAST. A little secret for you: keep Sat. April 27 open for the next Spring Meet Up in Fort Worth. More details coming soon. =)

Blessings + Hugs,
