insta… tuesday?

so clearly today is not my usual day for instagram pics, but since i am postless, this is what you get!

i got home sunday evening from blissdom and you’d think after just attending a blogging conference i’d have some wonderful post ideas and inspiration for my blog, etc.  and i do, but i also am tired and missing my family and needing to reconnect there more than here so blogging has been put in the back burner – sorry guys!

so for now, i’ll give you some little glimpses into my weekend in nashville with 700+ of my closest friends.

i definitely put my covered notebook to the test at conferences.  i am a diligent note taker!

this is what the attendees of a blogging conference look like – phones in hand constantly.

so thankful hershey’s was one of the sponsors of blissdom!  i was even happier when they brought out the basket of cadbury eggs.

in a session about microblogging and instagram, where i basically learned that i am doing everything wrong, we were told to take a pic in the room.  this chandelier was my subject.

berry sorbet after lunch while chris mann sang to us.

lisa leonard necklace + allora handmade fluff + pleated poppy petal pusher = love!

this was my view all day sunday.

and again.  3 flights to get home – boo.  getting home to a gaggle of kids nearly plowing me down  – yay!

    love the pictures!! i, too, am curious about what was said about microblogging and instagram. and why you think you’re doing it all wrong. i enjoy reading your blog and am inspired by yours so i can’t imagine what it is that you’d be doing that’s wrong. happy posting! (and getting some family time in!!)

    what is right and what is wrong is relative…..don’t let anyone tell you any different! I like your sweet blog and you just they way you are.

    I’d be interested in what they have to say about instagram/microblogging too. I’m certain I go about it all wrong. I rarely tweet, and my instagram feed is filled with pictures of my children (who are pretty much nowhere to be found on my blog). I’ve heard to be a success you need a Tumblr or Flickr to supplement your blog. But how does one find the time to do it all? And how do you find the balance between being you and not being calculated about it all?

    So glad you had a lovely time! One of these times I’m hoping to get to Blissdom!:)

    I hope you get some sweet fam time this week AND time at home! I’ve been traveling for the last two months without putting my suitcase away. Now home for four straight weeks and I’m giddy! Can’t imagine a trip to India AND then Blissdom. What a contrast of worlds. :-)
