Tired Doesn't Even Begin to Describe My Post-Blissdom Fatigue. But, It's a Good Tired. Really.

Flying to Nashville
Flying scares me (a lot), so my lovely mother was kind enough to come along with me to Nashville. She hates flying too, but at least she's more practiced at it than I am. And, it's better to be scared together than scared alone. Right?
Flying to Nashville
Mom brought her best friend, Joan, along. They have this (not so) cool trick where they harmonize their snoring. It's kind of like finishing each others sentences, but while sleeping. Joan is really cool peeps. We may or may not have teased my mom (a lot). That makes her okay in my book.
Flying to Nashville
Despite my (totally and completely rational) fear of flying, I still think the view from our window was beautiful. Maybe moreso considering the anxiety it provokes just to look at it.
Flying to Nashville
SNOW!!! I adore cold weather and snow. Unfortunately, it was gone by morning so I never got to play in it. Still, the sight of a real winter was nice.
Blissdom 2011
On our first night (Wednesday) I was assigned to arm bands and drink tickets at the kick-off party. It was a nice gig because I was able to familiarize myself with names and faces without being all weird and stalkerish. Also, Malia kept me company, and she brought The Awesome.
Blissdom 2011
And, by 'The Awesome,' I totally meant alcohol. Specifically, the Blissdom Blossom, which tasted like fruit punch. Mmmmmm. Not that Malia isn't awesome, because of course she is.
Blissdom 2011
In the morning, Linney and I (okay, mostly Linney) gathered the tribes for a pow-wow before opening keynote. It was fun to finally identify in person all the ladies I've been emailing relentlessly over the past couple months.
Boys at the Zoo
I was feeling a teensy bit lonely and lost on the first day, so Wesley sent me hilarious pictures. He's a good guy like that. He also didn't complain at all about my jetting off for four days. Love him.
Blissdom 2011
I also met cool new peeps like Amy (and Jana, and Alycia, and so many more), which meant I wasn't lonely and lost for long. Not long at all.
Blissdom 2011
Fashion was kind of a big thing at Blissdom. I'm not so much good at the fashion. I brought one necklace and one pair of earrings. Also, I wore the same boots every. single. day. (And only brushed my hair once). But, I love my $19 clearance rack dress. So, whatevs.
Blissdom 2011
This is Angela. She's my boss-lady at Blissfully Domestic. She brought two of her babies. I stole them as often as possible. They were unbelievably yummy. Wish they lived closer so I could love on them more often.
Blissdom 2011
At the end of the conference, after the final keynote, Alli and Barbara were love bombed by a flash(dance)mob. It was pretty spectacular.
Blissdom 2011
Saturday evening was Girls' Night In. I worked the door again, which gave me the opportunity to flirt with Chris Mann, and get hit on by some seminary students. Eventually I wandered in for pizza, karaoke and a few pretty ladies.
Blissdom 2011
On Saturday morning during tribe meetings, I was finally able to spend some time with Jennifer, one of my first bloggy crushes. She's been a really great interweb friend over the last few years and I'm so glad we were able to meet in person. (Casey's photobombing us, I guess she thought it was a costume party or something).
Blissdom 2011
I also met the amazingly talented (and tall!) Heather, who I've been harassing on Skype for the past several weeks. She is every bit as lovely in person as she is online. Which, by the by, is *very* lovely.
Visiting President Andrew Jackson's House
Before hitting the airport, Mom, Joan and I went to President Andrew Jackson's home and took a tour. I'm a little bit of a history nerd, so this was great. The property is quite expansive, so unfortunately we were not able to see the whole thing. How gorgeous is this fireplace, though? It's in the slave quarters. I feel a little guilty for liking it, but I just do.
Headed Home from Nashville
Our flight home only had thirty passengers. I once read somewhere that full flights almost never crash so, even though it's probably totally bogus, I was completely freaked out. I made my poor mom sit next to me the whole time, even though there was plenty of room for each of us to have our own aisle. Sorry, Mom.
MailChimp Monkey Hat!
And as inspiring as my days at Blissdom were, I am so unbelievably pleased to be home with my little monkeys.

So instead of strolling at a constant pace for say an hour, you'd modify items up by alternating short bursts of intense strolling for say a minute followed by a recovery time period with slower strolling following just about every intense period.
