home from blissdom

Jill and I flew home on sunday...


We went from Tulsa down to Houston then back up to Nashville... the from Nashville down to Houston and back up to Tulsa...


we had magazines to keep us company...


and cranberry juice...


and were so happy to see Tulsa land again!!!



Ryan left Blissdom on Friday to come home to our kids, leaving Jill and I to fend for ourselves. We had quite the adventure. We became roomies, felt like college again!

Unfortunately I had a pretty good head cold the ENTIRE trip, so poor Jill had to listen to me snore both nights! (sorry Jill!!!)

Friday night Jill asked if she should set her alarm, and I said nah, the first session doesn't start until 10 am and I just don't sleep past 8 am anymore, we'll have plenty of time to get ready. Saturday morning I woke up and look at the clock. 10:12. Stink! We missed the first session!!! BUT, we are both busy moms of 4 kids, we obvioulsy needed the sleep :)

Ryan asked me the highlight of the trip and I didn't have an answer, but after thinking about it I would say getting to meet and be inspired by so many women who have accomplished success... whether it's their blog or what they sell, they all have an amazing and unique story to tell! I think everyone there is on the same journey, we are just in different stages of the journey... some ahead of us and some behind us. I know we were touched by many ahead of us and hope maybe we were able to inspire a few behind us :)

We met alot of great women.

We networked.

We ate alot of great food.

We wore cute shoes.

We took a pic with Harry and saw him kiss a paper doll.

We walked alot. (massively HUGE hotel)

We had alot of fun!

We left inspired.

We are happy to be home with our families :)

My response would be the same.

Those cute shoes sure did hurt my feet. BUT they were cute.

Have a great week!

I loved meeting you at Blissdom (and on the plan to Nashville!) this weekend. I couldn't wait to get home and pull up your website to order a birthstone necklace! Expect an order for me once I get my kiddo in bed tonight. :)
