Y’all know I love to go to conferences. It is there that I get to see my friends and
sleep with them and eat yummy food and learn things. Things I did not even necessarily know I wanted to learn.
When I won a scholarship ticket to Mom Com in Austin I was so thrilled to know that I would get to hang out with some of my favorite friends and in my hometown.
Of course I did not know that the weekend of the conference I would be driving through THIS just to get there:
(yes, I took a photo, I was going 30 miles per hour and I did it really quick!)
And that my kids would be back at home building THIS:
This is “George” the Super Small Snowman. That’s a baby carrot and chocolate chips, oh yes!
What I also did not know about Mom Com is that it is not just about blogging or for bloggers. It’s about women and moms in general, those who work, those who do not, those who are entrepreneurs, those who want to better themselves.
I came away with some really amazing stuff from this conference that only spanned 24 hours for me. No, not swag, I’m talking about internal stuff, like thoughts and a new out look on this or that.
I was able to hear inspiring and true and beautiful words from several women, including Glennon Melton from Momastery.
I was also introduced to Marci Fair who is a mom like me but also works outside of the home and wrote a book based on some pretty awesome life principles and ideas and well, pretty much made me love her as a person.
And of course, as noted above I got to see some great friends and meet new ones, which is always one of my favorite parts of a conference!

Thank you SO much to Howdy Honda and Mom Com Life for the scholarship ticket and for the great opportunity to attend! I really had a great time and honestly wish it could have lasted just a bit longer…
p.s. special thanks to Jennifer for talking me off the ledge as I drove to get to her house.
