OK…my countdown has officially begun. T minus 13 and a half hours until I am on the road to Blissdom in Nashville.
This is the first time I’ve been to an event like this, and I’m oh-so-very just a little nervous. Sounds silly right? I’ll be surrounded by 250 other fabulous women who do what I do: blog, write, interact through social media. And yet…there goes that nervous thing again.
I’m fidgety. I’m antsy. I really just want to get on the road and get there. I think it is because I am so excited to learn. Sure I learn everyday from my kids, but I’m looking forward to an intellectual-adult-drinks involved-laugh-a-ton-wear-my-PJ’s-hit-a-cocktail-party-get-better-at-blogging kind of time. Oh..and did I mention: a hotel room to myself? And I can sleep in a little on Sunday morning, until maybe 8:30 or something? I’m planning to have such an outstanding time, I’ll be up late and needing the Sunday morning sleep fest.
There is an amazing lineup of women speaking at Blissdom and even more who will just
be there and be fantastic. How exciting to be surrounded by people who ‘get’ what you do? And for a whole weekend? And with cocktails? And without my children? Heaven.
I have been looking forward to this for a long time. I hope I’m not too much of a spaz. I can be a spaz. Really. I’m getting there around noon tomorrow. You’ll recognize me as the girl with the 4 bags. Just kidding. Sort of. I really can’t decide what to wear. Yes, I’m that girl…the one you went to High School with who calls just to see what you are wearing. I’ve heard everything: jeans, fancy jeans, rock star shirts (thanks Cool Mom’s Guide) sweaters, khakis, slacks, skirts, cocktail dresses and PJ’s…so, you know what? I’m bringing it all. I like to have options. And I’m driving. So I can do that.
See you manana, Blissdom.
