preparing for blissdom: last minute link party!

PSSST: google reader is going away! WHY? Make sure you follow my blog with Bloglovin

blissdom is a week away folks. ONE WEEK AWAY! AHHHHH. i've been in 100% prep mode for the last 48 hours meaning i've done....


okay well except for take this ridiculous picture. i did do that.

that isn't entirely true i suppose. we have a roomie chat tonight (can't wait to meet these gals: leanne {actually i know her but whatever, can't wait to see her!}, jamie, and joyce). i am getting a hair cut and a pedicure. and this concludes my list of getting ready for blissdom.

super prepared right?

i have read a few articles on how to prepare for blissdom but as far as doing any of the stuff these suggest i'm not doing so well. here is what i've read so far:

Blue Cricket Design: Heading to a Blog Conference
The Pixel Boutique: 10 Quick & Easy Ways to Prepare for Blissdom
Live Laugh Rowe: Blissdom Bound: Preparing for a Blog Conference
The Small Things Blog: Benefits of a Blog Conference
Musings of a Housewife: Fashion Friday: What to Wear to Blissdom
Stilettos & Diapers: Blissdom Prep: What to Wear
Simple Mom: What to Wear to Blissdom

so instead of packing or doing anything productive, i thought i'd try and read up some more on getting ready for blissdom, tips for getting the most out of it, and what to wear. do you have a post you'd like to share with me? i'd love to read it and share it with the blissdom community - especially all the newbies! or hey, just introduce yourself so when i see your face in the sea of people i will recognize a few folks!
