Usually after a convention you’re left feeling drained, incapable of thinking or speaking, and desperately longing for your own bed and kitty snuggles. We had heard the stories about the Hell City conventions and went in prepared for nonstop partying and surviving on just a few hours of sleep. This was definitely not the case this weekend..
When we arrived we were told there were no more King rooms available so they had upgraded us (for FREE) to a suite! Since we haven’t taken our honeymoon yet we felt like we were on a “mini-moon” when we walked into the enormous room to see twenty-foot tall ceilings, a living room with a fireplace, full kitchen, bathtub big enough for two, walk-in closet, and a deck that spanned the entire length of the suite. I waited for the bellhop to leave before running and jumping on Josh while screaming like we had just won the lottery! Our room was also away from the main group of where everyone else was staying so it was nice and quiet.
The convention itself didn’t feel like work at all. It was amazing to get to see so many world renowned tattoo artists and painters working firsthand. I’ll be sharing more details and photos in next week’s Tattoosday, but here’s a few peeks until then..

It was a much needed impromptu vacation that left us feeling refreshed, motivated, and energized (although you probably wouldn’t gather that from the photo below!). It was definitely bittersweet to say goodbye to friends, old and new, and head back home.
I’m trying to stay on the energy-high from the weekend to power through the rest of this year. We have a friend coming to stay with us for a little while, house-hunting (just renting), more travel and conventions, and a busy work schedule. I’d say wish me luck, but I think the only things to get me through it will be an immense amount of hard work, breaking my habits of procrastination, and embracing change.
What big changes or plans are you working on for the last half of the year?
