I woke up and sang her a lovely melody.
She's welcome. ;)
Then that hooker ordered a pot 'o coffee from room service, drank the ENTIRE THING, and WENT BACK TO SLEEP!!!!
Who does that!?!??!!
Then we got up and headed to the gym. Duh.

Holly and Megan waited on me to finish my hair....again.

So we went to a class and then had lunch.
And Megan had some birthday drinks.
We then went in the GoGoSqueeze suite (ps my kids LOVE that stuff- and no I didn't get paid to say that. They totes do!) and started our own little party.
We started hula hooping and dancing and having fun.
Yeah, that just happened.
And we did.
And you know what happened?
We met people.
It wasn't until after we told them how we were getting negative feedback from others, that we found out they, too, were having the same problem.
Feeling like people had already formed "cliques" and that they were being ignored.
And that bitches ain't nothin' but hoes and tricks.
Kidding. I'm not even sure what that means... I think it's in a rap song.
One of the awesome ladies we met, posted about her experience with meeting us and the "cliques" going on. Go check it out.
It seriously brought the biggest smile to my face.
It was so great meeting those gals and they turned our Saturday around completely.
I know it can be a little intimidating to meet people in real life that you read about every day, but if you meet me AND THEN don't like me or I'm not your cup of tea, that's FINE. I don't expect everyone to like me.
I know quite a few people that actually hate me. Can't please 'em all.
But what happened to giving people a chance? Not making assumptions about people based on what you've heard or what other people tell you to think or do??
It all felt very high school-ish to me and I will not be a part of it.
Last time I checked, I'm too old for that shit. And so are you. And all the people that were involved.
I'm a mom and a wife, yo... save the drama fo yo mama- and not this one.
I'm simply stating MY experience and my own thoughts on BlissDom's Senior Class of 2013.
Oh, funny story about the hashtag- Before everyone and their damn dog was hashtagging everything under the sun, I had no idea that it was referred to as a "hashtag"... so I sure did used to call that shit "pound". So I'd say like in my head "poundlame".
I feel like the conference itself was very Twitter-friendly (if by "friendly" I mean everyone was tweeting rude shit), however, that is the only form of social media I don't/won't do.
I'm more of an Instagram kinda gal... I want to see pictures. And being a WEIGHT LOSS blogger (mostly), that's kinda more my forte, anyway.
I felt like I would have benefited more from a conference like FitBloggin'.
However, I can't justify spending the dough on that trip.
Maybe one day.
So after meeting our new, awesome friends and inviting them out to SkinnyMeg's party, we went back to the room to freshen up and get ready for the night.
We took a shuttle to The Glass Cactus.
THIS was, hands down, the best part of the entire trip.
Becka from Kiki La'Rue went ALL OUT for SkinnyMeg's party.

Getting to meet some of our readers.
It was so incredibly awesome to meet them all and I'm so glad they came out to help celebrate Megan turning Ancient Years Old.
So while the conference was not what I had expected, I did learn a few things.
Not in the breakout sessions, but about people in general, and how no matter what you do, there's always going to be someone who doesn't like you. And there ain't a damn thang you can do about it.

I'll leave you with a hilarious video from Saturday night...
Now YOU'RE welcome. ;)
