When it rains, it pours. Even for good things.

December 23, 2011



I’m really trying not to spaz completely out of control with excitement.





I'm Going, Y'all! - BlissdomI’m so freakin’ excited because I just figured a few months ago that it was such a long shot to go, there was no way. We couldn’t afford it, I was bummed but had reconciled myself to just reading others posts and hoping for next year.

But thanks to the company that keeps my home so clean my allergic father in law didn’t even get sick from our cats on his visit – I’m going.

::fist pumps Oreck::

And I’m going to squeeze Molly, and Alena, maybe Amy and see Gussy and I’m going to be roomies with Beth Anne. In fact, part of the reason I get to go is because of her awesome blogging powers that be.

Needless to say, this week has been KILLER. Despite short naps and a cranky child.

So if you’re going, (or if you live in Nashville!) tell me so we can meet and chat and hug and squeeee together!

And thank you so much again to Oreck for being the kind of company that everyone on the planet wants to work with. Especially anyone who loves to vacuum as much as I do.

And I do. I really do.

    That’s awesome! I had resigned myself to not going too but a blogging friend decided to bless me as a Pay-it-forward and … I’m GOING! So excited! Making my way through the Blissdom link-up. You can find my intro post here: http://www.bethszimmerman.com/2012/01/12/hello-blissdom-2012/

    Hi Diana,
    We connected on Twitter but wanted to say hello again through the Blissdom Ice Breaker link up. Hope to meet you at the conference!

    That is so freakin’ fabulous. I, too, made a wish and it came true thanks to my best husband in the world. “When you wish upon a star…”

    Oh, good for you!!! I’m SO very jealous. No Blissdom, no BlogHer again this year – the timing for school breaks and airfares is all wrong. I think I’ve got to wait until we move back to the US….*sighs*

    And I so love Nashville…..

    Yay for you!!! Nashville is really close to my “home” town! Too bad we don’t live there anymore or I would SO be meeting up with you! I hope you have a blast 🙂 Some day I will go to one of those things!

    I wish I was gonna bump into you fine ladies there!

    Hmm, I wonder what the going rate for a kidney is these days… 😉

      I believe it’s just around the Blissdom cost. And really, you have two so seems like someone being a little greedy… 😉

      I’ve always thought Blissdom sounded amazing. I’ll be sure to give a rundown when I’m there.

      December 23, 2011 at 8:07 pm

      I’ll cross my fingers that one day you and I will be at one together. Or we’ll be stationed near you – that would work too. 🙂
