Blissdom Wrap up

toms shoes

   These Shoes were made for walking and lets just say that is what they do… They walked up and down the Gaylord OpryLand Resort for three full days with bags full of swag for you. They went to a dinner at Cracker Barrel where I had the chance to meet some of the Mission Giveaway Team. Yes my mouth is open in the picture because I am always talking about Autism.

Our dinner was provided by my sponsor Autism United. We had a wonderful time with another group of bloggers. Then we left the restaurant to get back for the opening of the conference. I am not going to bore you with details but it was a super night!

The real reason for this post is my sponsor and I had a running joke about me dressing up as big bird at the conference. I have a good sense of humor and do not take life to seriously so I decided to find my version of big bird attire and put it on for a photographic opportunity. I figured he paid for my friends to go to dinner and then he paid for me to take my friends to the Grand Old Opry to see Diamond Rio and Vince Gill. If you know me you know I have to be the most fashionable “big bird” there is so I found this shirt on ebay. It was Jcrew so designer feather I donned for the day. I got it for a great price and order it…. without further ado Madame Deals becomes Big Bird at Blissdom!


It turns out if you dress like Big Bird you attract the strangest looking guys! 

Thank you to my wonderful Sponsor at Autism United you allowed me to talk about a cause I feel strongly about supporting children with Autism. I hope that everyone who has my card will in fact write about Autism.
