Blissdom – My Blogging Adventure

Posted on: February 3, 2011

I’m hosting this week’s Try New Adventures for Alicia. I’m pretty excited because I’ve had so many new adventures in the last week I feel like I could easily spend the next two months sharing them with all of you. But since they all pertain to one big adventure, I thought it best to keep it to a single post.

In the last week I’ve:

1. Shared a hotel room with strangers.

{Me, Christine, Alicia}

Ok,Β Alicia and Christine aren’t complete strangers. I feel like we’ve formed this really special relationship over the last year. But it was pretty surreal meeting them for the first time ever last week. And I will say this: They are even sweeter in person than they are online. They are wonderful ladies and I just love them!

2. Met my blog crushes: Amanda, Mary, Jill and Ashleigh.

{Me, Amanda}

I was so nervous meeting these ladies. In fact, when I met Jill I completely started stammering {and I only do that when I’m super nervous}. But they calmed my fears completely by being the nicest ladies ever. Seriously incredible.

3. Met Melissa Peterman {A.K.A Barbara Jean}

After Julia was born, I started watching Reba every afternoon. While I can’t vouch for all it’s content, I do love that show. And Barbara Jean {B.J.} is perhaps one of my favorite characters. I suppose I should add, that when I’m super excited to meet someone, if I don’t stammer, I make ridiculous faces. Neither make for a good first impression.

4. Spent four days at a blogging conference.

At Blissdom I learned more than my head could hold. Got pampered with manicures and chair massages. Ate delicious foods. Met amazingly awesome women. Enjoyed time in prayer with fellow Christian bloggers. And had a great time. It was such an amazing adventure and I cherish every moment of it. But once it was over I was grateful to come back to the best adventure I could hope for: being a wife and mother.

Sounds awesome! Watching Reba was a guilty pleasure of ours for a while, too.

Glad to know I’m not the only one who like/love/obsessed over Reba. πŸ˜‰

Nothing like a little time away to make a person appreciate her blessings. That’s awesome that you got to room with Alicia.

When my husband and I were married for just a few months, I was invited to go on a women’s retreat for a church I’d never been to before. I imagine your situation was less awkward than that.

Love the new blog design, by the way.

Had so much fun talking with you for the few minutes we had. πŸ™‚

You were SO not stammering. You were delightful. I loved meeting you!!
