It’s another installment of My Week in Pictures! Here’s what I found on my phone from this week…ENJOY! :)

This week I traveled to Nashville to attend another Blogging Concentrated event. It was once again an awesome day filled with learning and motivation. If you’ve been reading for some time (or watch my videos), you know how much I love to throw around the word “awesome”, so this part of the day really spoke to me. 🙂

“When I get sad, I stop being sad and be AWESOME instead. True story.” ~ Neil Patrick Harris

Bloggers, if you have an opportunity to attend this event…DO IT! You leave there with the tools you need to be awesome and the motivation to make it happen. #youcanneverhavetoomuchawesome

So, one of the main reasons I chose to attend this particular event is because of this gorgeous lady (inside and out), Jessica from Living Chic on the Cheap. Here’s our story. Jessica and I both started our blogs at around the same time about 4 1/2 years ago. We began emailing each other deals and connected IMMEDIATELY. She is one of the smartest, funniest gals I had ever “met”. We “talked” every single day. And when I say talk, I mean Facebook chat. We are bloggers afterall. #wedonttalkonthephone 🙂 I had never even heard her voice (except on videos she’s done on her site) and vice versa. So, we decided it was time to finally meet and this conference was the perfect excuse. 🙂 Let me tell you, this girl did NOT disappoint! She is all kinds of awesomeness and her southern belle accent was as sweet as I imagined. I seriously haven’t had that much fun in a long time. Now we’re both on our way home and I miss her already.

By the way, Jessica blogs about beauty, fashion, kids, crafts, recipes and more. If you enjoy higher end items and just don’t want to pay full price, this is your GUrrrrrl!! Go HERE to check out her blog.

The hotel we stayed in gave us a fish. Yep.

We shopped a bit in the downtown area looking for gifts to bring back to our kids and I found this sign quite interesting. Apparently this is a problem for them? #wastemptedtoputthehaton

It wouldn’t be “my week in pictures” without a kitty picture. One of the stores we went in had this glorious cat assistant who obviously works on commission and does quite well for himself. Just look at that FACE! Mustaches on cats are just the best. #tokencatpicture

My cousin Amanda who’s a local girl, showed us how to be cool in downtown Nashville. That is one amazing city. We had delicious food, great shopping (although I did not buy any cowboy boots), live music EVERYWHERE and we of course laughed our FACES off!

I REALLLLLY hope this is a thing. I try to surround myself with as many nerds as possible. Gangsta nerd? How can THAT be bad? #termofendearment

I have NO CLUE what I was doing in my sleep, but I woke up to my phone charger completely destroyed (so I thought). Like with wires hanging out and everything. It turned out I just broke apart the 2 plastic pieces that cover the wires so I was able to fix it, but good grief! I might have to set up night cameras…this is just scary and I obviously cannot be trusted. #fixeditlikemacgyver

And finally, thank you Southwest Airlines for giving me an excuse to drink in the morning. Couldn’t let that free drink ticket go to waste, now could we? #firststepisadmittingyouhaveaproblem
