Alt Summit. Finally!

Alt Summit, Salt Lake City, Utah
Hi, kids! Well, I have finally made it! After missing out the last couple of years I have finally gotten myself to Alt Summit 2012! Woo hoo! In fact, I arrived just an hour or so ago and here I am... BAM! This is the current view from my hotel room at The Grand America. Not bad, eh? They also offer you a chocolate chip cookie the minute you walk in the door! A delightful offering if I wasn't staring down the cold hard fact that I have have to dress in all white in a couple of nights! If black is slimming, well, you can imagine why I passed.

I cannot believe that within hours I'll be meeting up with some bloggers that I've been following for years. Years! It's a long but heartfelt list. I feel like I know them already and yet this will likely take it to a whole 'nother level. Ya' feel me? In short, I am fully prepared to both lose my voice and have the hotel staff repeatedly come over and tell me, "Ma'am, you're going to have to stop your high-pitched screaming." It's going to be ridiculous. And, I won't care.

I'll be keeping you updated on things here as often as I can, kids. In the meantime, did you know that I set up a new facebook page for The Bedlam of Beefy? Well, yes siree, I sure enough did! And, if you felt so inclined to help your uncle out by offering me a "like" or two, I'd certainly be obliged!

I hope this post finds you doing well and 2012 treating you right, thus far. Take care, kids! Off to wander Salt Lake City!


  1. Cookies? That is my kind of hotel! You're making me even more excited for Alt, if that's possible. Hope to see you there!

  2. I hope to see you soon, Jen! Travel safely! :)

  3. I'm heading there too. And you know what? We can high-pitch scream together!

  4. Sooooo wish I was there. I have a 6 month old I can't leave yet, but next year fo' sho'. Have a wonderful time.

    Thanks doll,
    The Glamorous Housewife

  8. Hey Beefy! Thanks for attending our design camp on Saturday! Hope you got something out of it!

  9. I'm blurfing - one thing leads to another and then BAM!! that view is my backyard!! I hope you've loved your visit to Salt Lake - it's a truly fabulous place to be.

    Now I'm off to find those umbrellas that led me here from Pinterest.........it's SOOOOO easy to get lost in this whole following the links thing :-)

  10. Thanks for all the comments, kids!

    For those of you who went to Alt... amazeballs, right? Still foggy-brained and delirious!

    For those who didn't get there this year... get there next year! I may even have multiple costume changes a la Gaga. Y'know... if that helps.

    Jason! I totally got something out of it including a new headshot! It was an awesome class and really took out all the intimidation. Not to mention that you and Ryan need to take that show on the road! You were hilarious!

    Unknown... I did have a great time in SLC although saw very little of it outside of looking out the window. Hopefully more next time!

    Thanks, again, kids! :)

p.s. - Contrary opinions or constructive criticism are also fine but "The Bedlam" doesnt' serve as a platform for random (or anonymous) acts of offensiveness. Rude? Deleted.
