Awesome Things Tuesday and some things I learned at SNAP!

So as you read yesterday, I am back from SNAP! and I have to say, I am happy to be home.  SNAP! was an AMAZING conference and I met so many INCREDIBLE people and took so many super informative classes, but really there is no place like home.  Before I start telling you about everything I learned in my classes, today I am going to share with you a short list of things I learned after getting home about SNAP!

  • At SNAP! no one expects you to cook for them.  Quite the opposite actually.  Had Ashley from My Craftily Ever After said she was hungry and wanted food, I would have pointed her in the direction of the coffee shop at the hotel.  At home, I am being drug into the kitchen every 15 minutes because someone is always hungry.  Always.  And there isn't a cafe here that makes food on demand, just mom.
  • At SNAP! I am pretty sure not one person was interested in my bathroom business.  At home however, I am followed by two nosey kids who "just want to know what you are doing."
  • At SNAP! you could sleep in, if you wanted, but usually you were just so excited as to what the day was going to hold that you were up at the butt crack of dawn anyway.  This is no different at home, except for the excitement of what they day brings doesn't wake you, the screaming of toddlers that have no concept of time and are unaware that waking any time before 7am should be outlawed and punishable by being strung up to the ceiling fan with duct tape and having pickles thrown at you.
  • At SNAP! at the end of the day, when you get back to your hotel, your bed is turned down, there is a chocolate on your pillow and there is soft music playing on your radio.  At home, at the end of the day when you go to bed, you aren't sure if it's chocolate on your pillow or......
  • At SNAP! I got really really sick on Saturday and spent the day in bed hugging a bottle of Gatorade.  It sucked, but the best part about it was that I still got a sick day.  Without anyone needing anything and housekeeping showed up.  
So even though I am so glad to be home, there are perks to being out and on vacation.  I think this one day being home I am MORE exhausted than I was any of the days I was at SNAP! because all day here I am needed, where at SNAP! I was able to do what I wanted, when I wanted.  Oh how glorious are those days.  

But there is no place like home...right?
