    How did I not see you doing Sign Language on stage?? I love your run down of the weekend. Glad you had a great time post plane excursion!

    • Shannon

      I am thankful to hear you missed my Sign Language. I hope everyone did. It was an amazing time. Better than I could have hoped for.

  • http://melissawormington.blogspot.ca Melissa

    Love this. Love you. Wish you werent so far away.

    • Shannon

      Cheers to that!

    my comment disappeared…will try this again.

    So glad you came to my session!

    And, OMG re: your entire flying ordeal. It’s amazing you were able to participate in the conference. I would have spent the entire weekend on my fainting couch. Heh.

    • Shannon

      I want a fainting couch! Ebay?

      I’m glad I came to your session, too. I wish I had hugged you. I felt GREAT walking away.

  • Lindsay

    It was such a pleasure meeting you. You brightened my life!

    • Shannon

      Likewise! It was small bits, but I’m glad we got to chat. You were one of my must-sees. And still are. :)

    Loved this! So glad you had fun and maybe the universe did owe you just a little… :)

    • Shannon

      HA! That makes me feel better coming from Ministry Mom. :)

  • http://bellejarblog.wordpress.com Annabelle

    Hah, amazing! I love the point form breakdown of your hilarious weekend :)

    • Shannon

      Wee! It was so fun, Anne. I only wish we could have hooked up. Me and my silly communication skills. But, Vancouver is only a 4- to- 12-hour plane ride away!

    Shannon this is hilarious! I’m honoured and happy to have been a star in your weekend.
    The universe definitely did us a favour pairing us up as roomies.
    Can’t wait to hang out together again!

    You’re cute ;)

    • Shannon

      You were my MAIN highlight, Tara. No doubt. I’m gonna love you forever. Pepare yourself accordingly.

    • http://www.shasherslife.com/ Shash

      hey, ummm yah… I’m totally gonna take some credit for this one… lol ;)

      • Shannon

        You absolutely can, you matchmaker, you. :)

  • http://www.chantalsaville.ca Chantal

    Okay, okay… I admit it. I snort-laughed at this one: “You’ll know she’s a keeper when you rub the complimentary Dove body wash all over your hands thinking it’s hand cream and she doesn’t immediately switch tables to avoid future skin faux pas.”

    That’s the thing about these conferences – you walk around wondering if you are being a total dork, not really thinking that everyone around you is walking around thinking the same thing. Embrace the dorkness, I say. ;)

    • Shannon

      I LOVE snort-laughers. I wish I was a snort-laugher.

      We’re all dorks. That’s what I love about humanity and getting people together. It squishes the fear that we’re the only one feeling what we’re feeling.

  • http://canadiandad.com Chris

    This is my favourite recap yet! And you know what? Had I seen you rub that body wash on your hands, I would have done it too, just so that there were two of us with super clean, slightly embarrassed hands! Also, you were right about the vaginas. ;D

    • Shannon

      I rubbed the body wash on my hands after watching the woman next to me do it. It didn’t feel quite right. I picked up the bottle and announced it was body wash. We were both embarrassed. Mine was the kind I immediately tweeted about. :)

    Love your recap. I roomed with new people this year and now consider them some awesome friends. 2 of us are actually planning a girls week-end and a birthday celebration as we found out I am only 3 days older than her.

    Thanks to my post you know I totally understand the sleep thing. On the way home I actually texted my husband asking if he magically had the day off work the next day so I could sleep and he could watch the kids. Sadly he didn’t. I then tried to convince my 5 year old to skip school so I could nap instead of bringing him to school. He wouldn’t have any of it.

    • Shannon

      Yay for new friends! I hope to hang out with my ladies again soon for more crazy fun. That’s great you connected like this, too. Friendship is the bomb.

      Oh man, I could nap until 2013. Still so tired.

  • http://allinadana.com/ Dana

    I love your post. I hope the fact that it reminds me of “if you give a mouse a cookie” does not offend you — it says more about the state of affairs of my bookshelves than it does about your reading and just to be clear, I love that book. I too wish we could have met. Here’s hoping you’re brave enough to try coming back next year.

    • Shannon

      It’s AWESOME that you read it in the tone of those books because THAT’S HOW I WROTE IT. This morning I re-read it and I had that voice in my head. Success!

      I’ve read all theses books to my daughter and my students; they’re imprinted on my brain.

      You totally made my day. Thanks. :)

  • http://jackstrawlane.com Katja

    I missed your sign language karaoke! But I remember the magic wand. And I too want to buy every book and site of the afternoon speakers.

    • Shannon

      I miss the magic wand. I think I lost it.

    Ok….even though you missed out on the first bit….I find myself jealous of your Blissdom experience & sad that I didn’t get to hang out with you and Howard the cat. Love, love, love your write up & your blog design. :)

    • Shannon

      Howard the cat is the greatest. I’m in love with him. I think he’s crushing on me a little, too.

      It would have been awesome to meet you.

      My blog is all to my dude’s credit. It’s what he does for a living. My site is a playland for him. He read your comment–so thanks for stroking his already-inflated ego. ;)

  • http://www.latenightplays.com Louise

    The underwear over your pants while on the phone with your husband? HILARIOUS! But the heavy nose-breathing on the perimeter of groups of women? CANNOT STOP LAUGHING! Loved this post – so much. Please come and breathe on the back of my neck next year. I want to meet you!

    • Shannon

      Okay–where was your circle of ladies when I needed them?

      Let’s meet so I can breathe on you. #waitwhat?

  • http://mrsjanuary.com/ Cassie

    I’m pretty sure you left out the part where you had to take on a new role of “wing-fixer”, when my so-called assistant was slacking. That was a serious gig, you know. I would have been screwed without your help! What kind of fairy has broken wings? Not me!

    • Shannon

      Cassie–I totally meant to write about that part! TOO MANY THINGS.

      And yeah: you owe me huge. And so does your unobservant assistant. Pffft.

      Super fun to meet you! I’ll be in touch about COUPON STUFF. That’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.

      • http://mrsjanuary.com/ Cassie

        I am here for you. Coupon stuff is fun. I will teach you how to rock it.

  • http://www.bitofmomsense.com Rebecca (@bitofmomsense)

    this is one of my favourite recaps. It had me laughing but wishing we had crossed paths (what? In a sea of 500 people I didn’t meet everyone?!! FAIL ;)

    I hope you add the event to your plans for 2013 – and keep blogging like this!!!

    Great to chat with you on Twitter ;)

    • Shannon

      Happy to make you laugh, Rebecca. It’s my fave. It would have been great to be able to meet more people. Maybe we need a week-long conference next time?

  • http://www.simplyelemental.blogspot.com Jenn

    I’m sorry that I never met you, because based on this recap, I think I love you! ;)

    • Shannon

      Well this is moving more quickly than I anticipated, but I’m game!

  • http://www.changethetopic.com Birdman

    No wonder I didn’t see you, I was looking for a blonde. You need to update your avatars.

    • Shannon

      Don’t sass me. Your face is an avatar.

  • Victoria

    How is it that we did not meet last weekend? Clearly this must be rectified at a later date. And thank you for not only visiting but commenting on my recap post. Blissdom rocks.

    • Shannon

      Blissdom was pretty great. So was your recap. :)

  • Jocelyn

    This was so fun to read. Will you go back?

    • Shannon

      I’m not sure. It was far to go for just a weekend (especially with a 12-hour flight), but I did get a lot out of it. Maybe!

  • http://www.karengreen.ca karengreeners

    She really brought her cat?

    • Shannon

      She really brought her cat. And Howard is awesome.

    Hi. I’m Shannon. So are you. I’m totally adding you to my must read list after this post. And I wish we had more than 2.75 seconds to chat on the weekend. I must see you again. (Pretend I’m saying this in Ryan Gosling’s voice so that it sounds less creepy, k?) xo

    • Shannon

      I wish we’d had more time, too. When you were with my moustache group, I giddily believed you would stay with us. Sadly no.

      Hey girl, you’re not creepy at all. xo

  • http://www.shasherslife.com/ Shash

    I wanted SOOOO badly to sit with you and listen to you talk, yes… I’m crushing on you. Shannon’s are cool. What can I say…

    I’m glad I got to dance a little bit with you at least. That was you… right?! ;)

    • Shannon

      Ha! That was me. We did dance together. You were a white wonder!

      Hopefully we’ll have more time together in the future.

  • Jocelyn

    This looks like it was SUCH fun. I’m not 100% sure about the Diva Cup photo op (though, returning to do a second photo to get it right? ME TOO). I think I’d hold a sign that says “Critical Diva”. :)

    • Shannon

      Critical? Tell me about that.

  • http://www.jenandjoeygogreen.com Jen @ Go Green

    I’m glad that the world didn’t implode due to your “antics” on Saturday. I’m not glad that I am such a ninja that you didn’t even realize you were talking to me until after we were done talking.

    I loved reading your recap and am so glad you had a great weekend!

    • Shannon

      I KNOW. I felt SO silly after I realized it was you. I wish we had chatted more. Were you privy to my Saturday antics?
