Was I Bliss-less by not attending #BlissdomCanada ?

What is Blissdom Canada?

Well for being someone that didn't attend I'll go with a three day conference with bloggers to meet, great and learn.  It's about networking with other bloggers, brands & speakers.
Yes it does sound like somewhere I would have a fantastic time, but I wasn't able to go to Blissdom Canada.  It wasn't that I didn't want to, it's just that the timing wasn't right for me. 

I have saw first hand that when people don't get to go to certain events the little green eyed monster shows up.  I've read it on twitter & facebook. 

Personally I think that is ridiculous. 

I was very excited for my pals that they were attending.  They still included everyone not attending in the great happenings of each day.  I read daily recap blogs.  Live tweets during Keynote Speaking were sent to highlight important topics and I had a blast last night seeing everyone's pics of the Costume Party.

Today I asked on the #BlissdomCanada (hastag) if anyone is doing a recap of BlissdomCanada could they please send me a link to their blog?  Within minutes I was getting replies.  Everyone is happy to share what they learned.

So although I was unable to attend the inaugural BlissdomCanada I didn't feel left out.  Instead I felt somewhat "in the loop"
That's the difference between jealously and supportiveness.

Bliss(domCanada) is what you make it!

I wrote this back in June for my Tips for Tweens Blog when they partnered with Dove.  Being that it's DOVE SELF ESTEEM WEEKEND I thought it would be appropriate for a Re-Post

During the next few weeks the Wondermoms site is focusing on Dove. I admire their Real Beauty campaign, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that it hit home.

I was getting ready to go out with my son. He came & stood beside me as I was doing my hair in the mirror & said "Mom why do you always have to do make up & hairstyles?" I said "It's just what I do to get ready for my day. Why don't you like it?" He replied with "No, then you don't look like you".

After my heart sank a little & followed by the Biggest I LOVE YOU hug ever, I thought of this video.

What do you think of it? Have you shown your kids? I did & I think you should too, just to see their reaction & talk about how it makes them feel.
