roll out the red carpet (for someone)
1. Lit. to unwind a roll of red carpet for someone important to walk on.
2. Fig. to give someone treatment befitting royalty.

This is exactly what CBC Live did for those attending Blissdom Canada 
last week in Toronto!

I must admit, I felt a bit like a superstar walking down that big, red carpet for the very first time. CBC Live set us up in their infamous Barbara Frum Atrium – smack-dab in the center of all the action! In the daylight this atrium is incredible, imagine it at night, surrounded by white fabric, white couches, low lighting, great music {The Meligrove Band} & great wine {Generation Seven}, and best of all… fantastic people!! I overheard Lisa from @Those2Girls whisper… “This is what heaven must be like!”

I have to admit, I was there in work mode and I loved every single minute of it. I was in my glory!! If you know me at all… this is my zone! I spent most of the evening visiting, taking pictures and tweeting it out. I was having a blast sharing the Blissdom Canada community love and I even managed to crash a few photo ops…

@jodyarsenault from Mommy Moment is so kissable!

Here’s my work face….

Showing Dana how easy it is to do what I do!

Seriously… how could I not love my job?!!

Thanks to CBC Live and CL Buchanan Photography for the fabulous photos that weren’t taken on my iPad. 🙂 Of course, I couldn’t have looked so amazing if it wasn’t for Tia from who outfitted me in amazing clothes for the entire Blissdom Canada conference!!
