There was definitely bliss in the air with all the excitement surrounding parties, music artists, a Hollywood guest, swag, good food, Blissdom Blossoms, amazing sponsors and more!
We kicked off the conference with Melissa Peterman and CMT premiering their new show, Working Class. Melissa is a natural comedienne; she had the whole room roaring with laughter as she quipped about motherhood and acting. After we previewed the episode, Melissa took questions from the audience and had a little chat with One2One Network member, Rachel (@sthrnfairytale) about talking with your child about the best part of their day:
Thursday night, at the red carpet party sponsored by Jockey & Tide, we were treated to performances by Michelle Branch and Mat Kearney. Did you know that Barbara Jones worked with both these artists back before she started One2One Network? It was a fun reunion night for them and an excellent music night for Blissdom attendees. Michelle joined Mat on stage to sing “Dancing In The Dark” and everyone sang along and danced! It was definitely a bliss moment!
We were thrilled that so many of you came by the booth and participated in the vision board! Thank you very much to all of you who stopped by our booth to say hello or to learn more about us. We had a such a great time meeting members and attendees! Our collective community vision for 2011 was a wonderful sight to behold. So many inspiring words, phrases, statements and goals! The positive energy from everyone was uplifting and quite catching!
Friday night brought us the Freschetta Girl’s Night In, with an abundance of pizza, delicious salads from California Raisins and yummy ice cream from Blue Bunny! The Freschetta photo booth was the perfect addition to a girl’s night party and the chair massages (also provided by Freschetta) were a pampering “cherry on top” for conference attendees.
Blissdom alumnus, Chris Mann took the stage and treated us to several of his songs! Chris is such a great friend of Blissdom. He was around Thursday night during Mat & Michelle’s performances. He was in the epic flashmob. He talked with attendees and posed for pictures, even with the California Raisin! We love you Chris!
And we can help but also love the talented and beautiful, Crystal Bowersox! She wowed us all with her powerful vocals and beautiful songs. Attendees were especially pleased to see her family at the party and to hear her sing a song with her husband.
This post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the event that is quickly becoming Blissdom legend: the flashmob! Two One2One Network team members (Linda and Malia) were part of the planning team that pulled off the epic surprise! It was a highlight of the conference for so many! We were especially pleased to see the reactions of Alli, Barbara and Paula. It was done for them in mind, a big THANK YOU, for all their hard work!
One2One Network was to proud to be part of Blissdom once again. We love this conference (yes, we’re a bit biased!) but it really is a wonderful experience. Meeting so many of you, learning at the feet of wise women (and some men, too!), and making those connections that bring everyone back every year. It is definitely, bliss!
