The number of kidless nights I have had in the last 7 years could be counted on one hand. When the kids have slept over at Gammie's house I was still only across the street. I live across the street from my parents!
I am fortunate enough to also be making this trip with my great friend Beth @plussizemommy. When we arrived yesterday around 3:30 we were picked up at the hotel by my BEST friend for 25 years, Wendy. She lives here in Nashville and I haven't seen her in over 4 years! I got give her 6 year old daughter a huge hug, and meet her to adorable boys ages 2 1/2 and 9 months who I have only seen in photos! We had a great night with them and came back to the hotel around 10 pm. I can't wait to see the again Sunday before we leave to come home.
When we got back to the hotel, we started tweeting looking for other gals in the hotel. We ended up at a party in someone's room and there I met some great gals, some who I talk to on twitter and some whom I have never met. Here they are (in no particular order LoL) @carissa_momif, @sugarjones, @vdog, @sammanthia, @rachelferrucci, @mrsflinger, @jareason, and about 6 other really fun women who's names I can't remember right now, sorry :(. It was a lot of fun.
When we got back to our room, I snuggled into my extremely comfy bed, with 4 pillows and crisp white sheets and was whisked away to dreamland! I haven't slept in a bed in over 3 weeks, since my basement flooded and my son (who's room is down there) has been sleeping with my hubby while I sleep on the couch! Needless to say it was heaven!
I woke up this morning after sleeping for 7 uninterrupted (count 'em 7) hours of sleep to a bright sunny sky and feeling like I could run a marathon! I finished my morning off with a LONG, HOT, shower and I am sitting here now blogging this for you in my comfy hotel bathrobe in peace and quiet.
We are getting ready to go register and meet everyone and I can't wait to share the rest of my adventure with you!
Have a great day :)
