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!
