Day one of Blissdom is coming to an end…although I’m supposed to be headed to a cocktail party right about now. I’m a little overwhelmed by everything I’ve seen and heard today, though, so I thought I’d give you an update on what’s been going on.
First of all, in case you don’t know, Blissdom is a conference for women bloggers, hosted by Blissfully Domestic (an online magazine). This is the conference’s second year, and I’d guess there are about 150-200 women here.
So, my day started before the crack of dawn at 4:15. Let me just say this: I do not believe in seeing 4:00 twice in one day. It’s really against my beliefs. But I did it this morning and got myself to the airport and on the plane on time.
I was then thrilled to hear the pilot announce that we would have a brief delay while the plane was being de-iced. Excellent.
Once we were free of ice, the flight was uneventful – just how I like my flights. And as a bonus, the flight wasn’t full, so the sleeping guy by the window and I had a seat between us.
I got into Nashville bright and early, and my plan was to meet up with Brent and Tam, bloggy friends I’ve just started getting to know. I was super excited…and a little nervous, silly as that sounds.
Alas, it was not to be. Our schedules didn’t synch, and we didn’t get to hang out. I am bummed big time. I mean, I spent a lot of time debating the Hello Hug. You know – is it weird to hug someone that you’ve only “met” online when meeting them in real life?
For the record, Hodges, I had decided no, it was not weird. I would have hugged you.
As for the conference itself, I am definitely learning some things, and I hope you’ll see some changes around here in the next couple of months as I integrate all this new knowledge.
Until then, I’ll share with you the most important thing I’ve learned today:
Little Debbie 100 Calorie Snacks (Chocolate Cakes with Chocolate Icing) are ridiculously good. And tiny. But good. I should probably say delicious. Because that’s what they are.
So, if you can handle two bites of chocolatey heaven and be good for the day, well, these are for you. Me? Well, let’s just say I won’t be needing to find room in my bag for the box I got when I signed in this morning.
What’s up with you all today? Anything exciting planned for the weekend?
first, mmmmmmmm! they look good. but how many grams of fat do they have? that’s what i’m watching!
second, i also believe what you believe about 4:00. and also 5, 6, and 7! :-)
glad you’re having fun!
I like those, even if it is only 2 bites worth of chocolate;D
I love those little debbie cakes. Whenever I have to go on a trip and I know there’s gonna be mad foodage going on I stash some of those.
I’m excited to hear all that you’re learning. You’ll pass the info on to us, right? So sad for you that you didn’t get to hook up with the Hodges. :( And I just want you to know in advance, that when we meet, we’ll most definitely give each other a big ol’ hello hug! Oh, and those Little Debbie chocolate cakes…. mmmm, they look good. I’m sure that I wouldn’t take up any suitcase space by toting them on home. I’d just gobble ’em on down.
I just saw these in the store and thought, “hmm, I wonder if those are good?” Here’s my answer! I should have bought them!
It was so much fun to meet you at Blissdom! Have a safe trip home. :)
