Blogger's Conference - Part 3

I suppose there are some readers out there who are wondering. Who have lots of questions as to why one blogger, such as myself, would dedicate three whole posts to talking about a blogging conference.

Unless you had experienced the awesomeness for yourself, I suppose the questions are valid ones. And so I have thought long and hard as to how I might explain it to you.

So, here you go.


If that doesn't clear things up or if it makes no sense to you, well, I'll explain it to you when you're older.

In the meantime I must shout from the blogosphere just how awesome the famous Becca from Blue Cricket Designs is. She was incredibly nice and so fun.

I'm thinking the mustache is a good look for me. Who says facial hair on woman can't be dashing?


And what would this post be without a picture of Kristina from the oh so famous Pulsipher Predilections rockin' a bedazzled pink snuggie!!

Can I just say that for someone so famous, she sure is awful sweet?


As the conference started winding down to the end, bloggers were leaping across the room, chairs, and other bloggers just to get a picture with me. 

Like Alexes from One Cluttered Brain, she beat everyone to the punch. Because she's fast like that.


And my fabulous roomies T and Tauna, who snore every so lightly in their sleep. But I hear having five kids does that to you. So whenever I have another kid, I'll start lightly snoring too. Serves my husband right.

 I had a blast with them. Love these babes.


And then just like that, the conference was over. We sadly said goodbye to everyone, no one cried but vowed we'd see each other again next conference. 

Because we're women. And that's what women do.

Now, earlier last week, and I received an email from Jody asking if I'd be willing to meet up with her by the freeway on our way back because she had something for me.

I was stunned. Something for me? Really? I could only hope it wasn't a straight jacket.

So Tauna and I pulled off the free way at the allotted gas station and awaited the arrival of Jody and her surprise.

She first handed Tauna and I a box of chocolates and I thought, what a great surprise! Only another blogger would be so thoughtful.

Then she handed me a roll of wrapping paper. Bright yellow flower wrapping paper.

I stared at it for a second, unsure of what it meant. But Tauna got it right away! Then Jody decided I had stood there looking dumb long enough and she informed me it was so I didn't have to use all my Christmas wrapping paper!

Ha ha ha!! I burst out laughing!

If you are new to my blog, there is something you need to know. I am terrible at buying wrapping paper. I never think about. So all my gifts get wrapped in Christmas paper or plastic sacks. Like Mother's Day gifts and birthday presents.


Since Father's Day and my husband's birthday are coming up this month, he will be the lucky recipient of Jody's flowery generosity. Thanks girl!

And to end, I would like to extend a special thanks to Tauna, Jody, and Krista for making my whole weekend just that much better.


And when I finally made it back home sometime around midnight, everyone was fast asleep, even my husband.

But I was greeted by some love nonetheless.

Even if the next morning the kids acted like I had never even left them.

26 super cool people speak:

Kristina P. said...

Crap, my secret is out. I am a nice person! I wanted people to think I was going to stab them in the eye with a Bumpit whenever someone meets me.

It was great to meet you!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

I was worried about letting your secret out into the open but I thought I'd risk the wrath of the bumpit.

gigi said...

Well since it went on for 3 days you should have at least 3 posts about it all. I've enjoyed every one of them plus the pictures are great too.

MommyJ said...

I'm so with you on the wrapping paper thing! I want some chocolate. Desperately.

Garden of Egan said...

I was worried about the snoring thing. Sorry. Next time I will bring earplugs. It was a blast. You are such a sweetie.

Rudy Rukus said...

Well I am absolutely heart broken we didn't meet. I did see you just didn't meet you! So so sorry. We will certainly meet next time right? We shall be good friends by then!

One Cluttered Brain said...

I totally fergot about the picture i jumped in!! HAHA!!!
So funny.

I'm glad you had a good time with Tauna. She really is a sweetheart.

Next time when I go at least, I am going to have my video camera OUT and recording the small and crazy things I do, AND my friends do.

A snapshot of me and my friends at a blogger conference.

Scary huh?

Thanks for hanging out with me at the conference!
i had a good time!

Becca said...

right back at 'ch babe! Air hug followed by a sassy pose!C an you picture it!? NICE!

Cheeseboy said...

Kristina really just needs to start her own Snuggie company to compete.

Patty Ann said...

Love the conference report!
Since I didn't get to go, it is nice to see how much fun it was. Maybe next year, it will be me jumping in all the pictures (only if my diet works!) Thanks for keeping us all updated.

Scrappy Girl said...

You might be brave enough to stand up to Kristina and her bumpit, but if she comes at you with her PedEgg you better run!

I am so buying a plane ticket next year...

Lisa said...

Ahahaha!! Lightly snoring? My Mother did some light snoring the entire time in our shared room in Nauvoo when we had a special sisters/mother trip. We tease her relentlessly...still. She will never again share a room with us. And we thank her. :)

Marie said...

Well I for one am glad you posted 3 times because I didn't even know such a thing existed! It looks like it wad a blast!! Is it an annual thing? If so, then next year I am soooooo there :)

I hope you're feeling better :)

Royalbird said...

I am the same way with wrapping paper. Once wrapped Christmas gifts for my brothers in clothes. Yep, that's right, clothes. Not even Christmas wrap.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

You are so LUH-KEY you got to be there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No fair girl! Loooooooooove all the pictures though and after reading your posts, I feel like I *was* there!!! Love it! So glad you had fun!

See Mom Smile said...

Glad your are home safe and sound and your family missed you. Yea it takes about 5 seconds for that to wear off huh?

Krista said...

I thought that "Truffle" wrapper looked familiar! I liked your Christmas paper. It was unique! Are you on FB? I can't remember your last name and I don't post mine on my blog. Send it to me (since I moderate comments) and I won't post it.

Pearl said...

It's funny how fast kids forget that you were gone and go right back to their ever lovin selves, isn't it?

Glad you had a great time.

the Gardners said...

It sounds like it was a total blast! I so want to go in the future!

Sue said...

Oh, I love those little notes and pictures on the pillow!

=)

Doran & Jody said...

AH MAN! If I would have thunk, I would have got you BOY wrapping paper. Well, no matter, turn it inside out and put motor oil on it or sumpin.

Thanks for stopping!

Mama Smith said...

As much as I enjoy my daughter's blog...I have found such ENJOYMENT reading all your responses...I get as much entertainment reading all your comments!!! I find myself chuckling...and on occasion...lol...

Wonder how entertaining a "Granny" blog would be...(smile)I'm afraid...too many of us would have "senior moments"...(smile) Won't be able to remember what we were going to write in form of comments! (smile)

Kazzy said...

It was such a great event! I have seen you commenting all over too, but never got a chance to meet you.

You have a cute little guy there!

Charlotte said...

That picture really does explain it all. No words needed. ;)

brandy said...

So bummed I didn't get to meet you last weekend. Looks like you had a blast!!

There is really nothing better than little love notes......so sweet.

Valerie said...

It all looks like so much fun! Glad you got to go.
