BlissDom 2013

In exactly two weeks I am heading to Dallas, TX to attend this years BlissDom conference!

I had been looking to attend some sort of gathering for bloggers but was not sure which one.  After talking with Kelly we decided that BlissDom was perfect!  I bought my ticket at Christmas while it was still the "early bird" price.  But, stupid me didn't buy my plane ticket until this past Friday.  You can only imagine how big of a dent that put in my pocket book!

We are staying on site at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center  and I am super pumped! I arrive at 8:15am on Thursday and we may try to squeeze in a spa day :)

I am hoping to learn all sorts of new and great things about blogging, but I am also really looking forward to finally meeting the women behind the computer screen of some blogs that I love.  Kelly and I have "known" each other since we were pregnant with Presley and Guinevere and we seem to have a lot in common (except she is way more fashion savvy than I am, ha!) 

We've been emailing and texting about what we are bringing and what we are going to do while we are there and during all of this I have learned that Kelly is very thorough :)  When asking what she is packing she wrote a full detailed email with attached pictures! It was hilarious, awesome and helpful all at the same time.  I could probably just pack my toothbrush and undies and be okay with what all she will bring...which, now that I think about it would save me a lot of time packing!

I also had to warn her (since we and going to be roomies for 4 days) that I am 75% perverted teenage boy and 25% well mannered lady.

Her response?

"I'm shocked that you think this offends me."

It's going to be so much fun! HA!

I am excited to meet new people, eat good food (Taco Bell), drink super fancy drinks (Bud Light), and relax (act like a high schooler) for a few days in what I hope will be warmer weather than what we have had the last few weeks. 

I hope I remember to take my camera (read: actually take pictures) while we are there!  

See? Don't we look great as BFF's?
(Kel, I promise I have feet!)

Someone farted on Presely's pillow...

If you've never seen the movie 'Knocked Up' then I am terribly sorry for this posts title. 
 
It means that Presley has had Pink Eye and obviously that's how she got it..right? ;)
 
Last week when I picked her up from school they said that she woke up from nap with The Stink Eye, and that a couple other kids in her room had it also.
 
Now, I am already the reigning world record holder for Most Cases of Pink Eye so it doesn't surprise me that my little meatball has the crusty crust in her eyes. For me, all you have to do is say the word 'pink eye' and I will have stuff oozing out of my eyes 5 minutes later.  Swear.
 
I took her home, left her with Adam and scooted over to Earth Fare to get some homeopathic drops.  We started the drop immediately but she woke up the next morning and I had to pry her eyes open for her because they were all sicknasty with Pink Eye funk.
 
It sounds as lovely as it looked.
 
Thankfully, I was off work that day (and it was my Birthday!) so we stayed home and snuggled and caught up on Downtown Abbey.  Presley was buckwild.  It wasn't phasing her at all.
 
I also kept her out on Thursday and sent her back on Friday (it was much better, no more green stuff) but they called me Friday afternoon and said it was still coming out of her eyes.  Adam picked her up while I finished doing a massage.  I don't know WHY it didn't occur to me sooner to use the Oil of Oregano on her feet because that stuff gets rid of everything!
 
I put it on the bottom of her feet that night and she woke up Saturday morning Pink Eye free!
 
I seriously swear by Oil of Oregano.  It has cured almost every sickess Presley has had!  If you have a little one and you don't like to give them other medicines I highly recommend you invest in this stuff.  I just ordered another bottle of it off Amazon because I never want to run out!
 
Wow.  Was this entire post really about the Stink Eye? Sorry about that! That's life for us :)
 
Don't forget tomorrow is Trendy Tot Tuesday!  I will be posting about how I would dress a little boy if the time ever comes!
