As noted in a previous post, I was able to admire the new Hallmark Kids Collection at Blissdom at the Hallmark booth. Hallmark writer Sarah Mueller who helped develop their new line was on hand to show me several of the cards.
In the video below, we discussed the importance of encouraging children and how I have used cards to encourage mine over the years.

Note: I have to thank Corvida of SheGeeks.net for taking my sons to lunch while I was at the event. Corvida’s passion for social media and all that it entails is inspiring to see! Click HERE to go to her site.
We’re home! We arrived Monday night from Blissdom. Our original Sunday flight to LaGuardia was cancelled because of weather conditions. Thankfully, my boys and I were able to get a flight to Newark on Monday, arriving before the tri-state area snow storm.
Us Airways gave us a hotel room, as well as food vouchers, however, we ended up staying with my older brother and his fiancee. It was great seeing them. We haven’t seen them in a little more than a year so I have to thank US Airlines for the unplanned family reunion.
I have to admit, as happy as I was to go to Blissdom and meet so many fabulous bloggers (You know who you are!), as well as have the opportunity to spend time with my family, the boys and I were super excited to get home. Now if only, my luggage had arrived with me!
I’m excited to say that I am in Nashville, Tennesse at Blissdom, with my sons’ Karl of Teen On Da Rise and Andrew of Andrew’s Voice! It was a last minute decision. I won a Blissdom ticket on Twitter from DeVries PR this past Monday, booked our flight and hotel on Tuesday and flew out on Wednesday!
The Opryland Hotel is beautiful. It has 2,881 stylish guest rooms, including 174 suites. It also has nine acres of indoor gardens, cascading waterfalls and an indoor river with its own Delta flatboat! I plan on taking some pictures and videos during our stay to share with you.
While here I will also have the opportunity to meet bloggers and twitter users that I follow and converse with on a regular basis. I plan to catch up with Modern Mami, Justice Fergie, Cuponeando, Carrie and TheChattyMomma, as well as a slew of others! I just hope I have the time!
