I am in Nashville!

tali blissdom I am in Nashville!

I just spent the better part of the afternoon making my way from Milwaukee Airport to attend Blissdom.  Look who came with me down to Nashville: my little baby girl Tali.  Yeah!  first airplane ride for  her and first one for me with an infant.  I need some FREE tylenol, that’s all I am going to say.

I am very excited about this weekend as there are a TON of frugal bloggers down here.  So I look forward to seeing some old friends and make some new friends as well.  I intend to keep business as usual around here and if you would like to keep up with me you are welcome to follow me on Twitter and be my friend on Facebook.  I will keep updating my status there with what’s going on down here.  You can also follow my Whrrl Story.

Now that I am down here all I can think of is having some killer ribs for dinner, yum!


  1. I have followed you for over a year and I con not believe you are so close to home. You are like a superstar to me. LOL. I wish I was able to go to Blissdom this year but no…. my girls have a basketball game friday night & winter formal sat night.

    When you fly back home, nurse her on take off and landing, Mercedes. She’ll cry less. :) And if you have a wrap for baby wearing, I suggest that as well – I flew with my son when he was a bit older than Tali for the first time, and we did exactly what I suggested – he was an angel!

    Now, flying with him when he was 2? that was another story. ;) I needed more than Tylenol after that flight!

  6. Jenn says:
