Blissdom Bound Y’all

As I was putting the finishing touches on my little love gifts to pass out at Blissdom, I couldn’t help but be reminded of my very southern roots.   I made the cutest little bookmarks and very heavily-iced mocha cupcakes for my friends {old, new and yet to be made}, all the while listening to Tim McGraw’s song from the movie The Blindside called Southern Voice. It reminded me of so many things that I love about ‘the Southland’. I grew up on old school country music and can recite many-a-line from Coal Miner’s Daughter. I regularly say y’all, monogram far too many personal and household items and often get a little happy with the eye-shadow. I hug everyone, use too much butter, make a killer pan of cornbread and love everything Elvis and Johnny Cash. And though I rarely listen to country music these days, I’ve always had a teeny little crush on Tim McGraw. I think it’s because he resembles my own hottie husband and seems to be a devoted family man. Are you following my stream of consciousness here?

I’m going to Nashville for Blissdom…
which reminds me of my country music raising…..
which reminds me of how strange we southerners must seem to outsiders….
which brings me to butter cream icing.

For you see, butter cream icing breaks down all barriers—-and all arteries for that matter—–and buttercream icing seemed to be the most perfect way to welcome you to the south. That and Tim McGraw singing about cicadas, sweet tea and Hank Williams. Something about heading to Nashville makes me wanna put on my boots, make buttercream icing and listen to a little Tim McGraw.    I can hardly wait to get there.

I’ll see y’all tomorrow.



I made the bookmark as a pdf file so you can download it, print it off, laminate it and bedazzle it. Love to you all!  And don’t worry, if you’re not going to Nashville, I’ll take good notes and share everything I learn.  My partners in crime are Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy and Krist from Pink and Polka Dot.
