Blissdom '11 and Kleenex...making dreams come true!

I had come to terms with it.  I am not going to Blissdom.  Another year that I really want to go and it just isn't going to happen.  Last year I told myself that I was going to go this year.  I would make it work.  Jeremy would have just gotten his end of year bonus and I would be going.

Well, plans change as we all know.  Lost job, pregnancy, moving, Blissdom being right after we move...I just didn't see how it was going to happen.

I had come to terms with it.  Realized that it just wasn't in the cards and planned to stay home, school my kids, and read everyone elses posts about this amazing conference.

Then...the Conference Fairy showed up in my inbox.

Two Mondays ago, I got an email from Kleenex telling me about their new program, Softness Worth Sharing.  They wanted to send me to Blissdom as one of their Brand Ambassadors.

To say I was shocked is an understatement.  I was floored.  Jeremy and I were able to make it work

Today, I am headed to Nashville for 4 days.  You hear that???  FOUR DAYS with NO CHILDREN!!!!  I am going to Blissdom.  I am going to see so many of my amazing friends, and am going to learn so much.

I am going to get to talk to other Mamas about this thing we call Motherhood and plan on picking their brains about how to be softer in my dealings with my kidlets...especially when homeschooling.

I can't wait and am so grateful to Kleenex for this amazing opportunity!!!

Now, a little nitty gritty about this great new program from Kleenex.  You can go to the Kleenex website and send a box of tissue with a sweet little note to one of your besties. I sent one, but I won't say to who because it is someone I love that reads my blog and I want her to be surprised!!!  It's super easy and fun!

AND, if you're at Blissdom, be sure to stop by the Kleenex booth and send a Share Package to someone you love.

*Thank you so much to Kleenex for sending me to Blissdom and trusting me to represent them well.  While they are sending me, the words and sentiments are all mine!

Hello, my fellow Kleenex blogger! I love that you call them the conference fairy - isn't that the truth?! I just heard that we'll be speaking together on the panel with Liz Hawks. Looking forward to seeing you then!
