2014 Haven Conference...nerd in headlights!!!

I just got home from the Atlanta Haven Conference and boy oh boy was I overwhelmed! It was my first time going so I was truly a newbie. But, no longer one now!!! I want to share my experience with you and wished I had more pics to share but seriously I was just soaking it all in and walking around like a "Nerd in the Headlights" If you were once a newbie you know exactly what I'm talking about!!! Thank goodness I was meeting up with some of my MMS retailer peeps...otherwise I would of been in a corner shaking like a little chihuahua....not really but they sure did make the overwhelming meet ups much easier!

There was so much to learn at Haven I just kept taking notes the entire time.  I was really looking for some basic 101 on SEO and tricks for great picture taking....and I achieved both and then some.  If anything,  I walk away from Haven with more confidense to just blog on what I enjoy!

Ok....so...I did mention that I was like "a nerd in headlights" right???  uhhh....that's me...photobomber!

I know, I should be embarrassed....but I'm not!!  Brooke from All Things Thrifty AND Stacy from Diamond in the Rough were so much fun to be around.  Ehhh....I don't think they even noticed me!

There was so much to do.. like famous bloggers to meet, classes to take, famous bloggers to stalk, do some hands on with Rustoleum, famous bloggers to stare at, hands on with Minwax and so much more stalking to do!   I really had all intentions to rub elbows with these famous peeps....but ya know what....I froze...yep sure did!  I did up close to these darling little gals from Shanty 2 Chic, Whitney and Ashley.  They are soooo stinkin cute!

Like I said....I didn't seem to take many pics....yah right....but I sure did seem to have pics taken of myself and some more awesome bloggers.  Here we have sweet Jen from Girl in the Garage.  It was so awesome to finally meet her in person!

All my anxiety about what to expect upon arrival and during all the classes were put to ease as soon as I walked into the hotel.  Everyone was so nice and welcoming!  The hotel was fabulous and the food....Oh My Lanta was it delish!  Look at this spread.  Maybe I shouldn't let the hubs see this....cuz he thinks I was at Haven taking notes and working on projects the entire time....no time to eat!  Ha!
And will you look at my Swag Bag!!  Holy skitake Batman.... And that was just from when I walked in the front door of the hotel.  By the time I was back at the airport checking my bags I was 14lbs heavier...."That will be $100 please!"  I say....WHAAAAA!    Good ol boy helped me "reorganize" the weight.  Phew!
I love me some FROGTAPE.  Best tape ever.  See that Washi tape in back there....it was ripped right from my hands as soon as it came out of the bag.   My girls luuuuvvvvv this stuff!!!

Yep...those are ginormous crab claws!!

Serious claws here folks!!

This was the finale night hosted by Ryobi and Home Depot!  They know how to sweeten a girl!

What a great adventure I had at the Haven Conference 2014.  I know next year will be just as fabulous and I will be sure to have my camera and not just pics from my phone!

And guess what???  I will never be a Haven newbie again!
Happy you were today and stay around awhile....you never know what you will find here!  You can find me chattering daily on facebook HERE!

Throwback Thursday and a little sneak peak!

Welcome to another week of Throwback Thursday!  I am so glad you are here and hope you enjoy our pick's from last week.  Each week the link up seems to be bringing more and more linkers with some awesome projects!   We have some really talented people out there…ya know!!

 I personally LOVE a Throwback party because just sometimes I don't have a chance every week to put out a new project….geesh or even every other week.  The week just goes so fast I can hardly keep up with my email every day.

It's a Winter Wonderland and Throwback Thursday!

Greetings my friends!  
Well, have you been keeping warm this past week?  We have had 9 snows days already in January!  We've had so much snow here it's been crazy but the real crazy is the below 0* temps the last 5 days.  We've had school days cancelled this week just because of dangerous temperatures!  Believe me when I say…"I have LOVED having my kids home... but enough is enough…it was time to go back to school today! 

I wish I could say that I got tons of deep cleaning and organizing done with the days off but that is SO not the case.  It was days of baking, playing games and eating way too much.  Going to hit my yoga class tomorrow…and start doing a little core strength training.

Now…it's time for Throwback Thursday and I can't wait to see what you all are going to bring us this week.  We had a tough time selecting our features this week because there were so many awesome link ups.  You guys ROCK!  Remember to have a look see to some of the other link ups…..say Hi…leave a comment, give em a "Like" and be sure to visit your hosts!  We love hearing from you.  Thanks for being here!
