This past weekend I was able to attend the Blissdom Conference in Dallas, Texas. This is the third time I have attended the conference and hands down, it is one of my favorites.
I have actually been blogging since 2008 and just in case you are wondering what a blog might be, well, you're reading one now. :) This year the Blissdom Conference rocked my socks off. Why? Because I got to meet some of my most favorite people on the planet and had a ton of fun while doing it.
Here are some pics I shared on our Instagram page over the weekend:
That is Jon Acuff. That's right, I said THE Jon Acuff. I'm not sure if you are aware of degree of super fan that I am when it comes to Jon (yeah, we're on a first name basis) but it's intense. Let's be honest, it was all that I could do to keep from screaming hysterically as if he was a member of New Kids on the Block. I know, it's embarrassing but true.
Chris Mann was there too, you've probably seen him on The Voice. He's pretty rockin' and he now has a new doggy toy thanks to the folks at Petsmart who gave us both dog toys for our little guys at home.
Meet Thuy from MyPaperPinwheel.com, she contributes on our site every week and she had to put up with me for four whole days! We were roomies and I'll tell you, it was a lot of fun! That picture was taken Thursday afternoon after we drove to Dallas at 3am for news and the conference. We were tired but having a blast!
I also got a chance to meet Amy from LivingLocurto.com and she is one of my FAVES! We use her printables all the time on this site and the news, she is AMAZING! If you haven't been to her site yet, stop what you are doing and click the link above, you will thank me for it!
This, my friends, is a cookie. It's not just any cookie though, it is a cookie the size of my head AND I have a big head so that's saying a lot. Everything is bigger in Texas and I am certainly glad that applies to cookies.
Not sure if you know this but we're on DLiving TV in Dallas every single day and while I was in Dallas, we were live on the set for two segments. It was a BLAST! These ladies are so sweet and they love saving money!
This was us just having fun! Deedra (from Money Saving Queen), myself and Thuy truly loved being at Blissdom. It's so great to hear new ideas in the blog world and meet up with those we love online!
Yep, this happened. My kids thought it was the coolest thing ever. :)
All that to say, we had a blast and if you've been thinking about attending a blogging conference, I would recommend it. If you were there, tell us what you thought too!
