Top Ten Reasons I am glad I am not going to BlogHer!

Cozi to Sponsor 15 Moms Not Going To BlogHer $100 Each

Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family This Coming Weekend.The girls of the Non BlogHer Party believe that just because we aren't going to BlogHer it doesn't mean we shouldn't count, right? Cozi heard our cries and has offered to sponsor 15 bloggers - with $100 each! Did you hear me?

So my Top 10 Reasons I am glad to not be going to BlogHer are:

1. My 2 week Staycation begins on Friday night at 5 p.m.. 2 whole weeks doing what I want to do. Yeah!!!

2. I would miss out on valuable time with my mom. Her health is not great at all right now. Being home I know she is eating, and taking meds when she is supposed to be.

3. If I went to BlogHer my SIL lovemy2doggies would be at home pouting. This way she is happy.. and that is what matters.

4. I will get to spend wonderful time with my nieces and nephews.. well maybe not all of them. Some of them have busy lives..

5. I would miss out on going to Trader Joe's . I have never been (gasp) I know.

6. I am hoping this weekend to do some other things I have never done.. Starbucks, Half Priced Slushies at Sonic,

7. If I was at BlogHer this weekend I would miss out on the chance of going to the local movie theater to see Harry Potter with a friend.. ( I don't like the movies.. only the books.. but a friend asked)

8. If I was at BlogHer this weekend I would miss out on all of the great things happening at home. I am hoping to hit the State Fair, and maybe the local Crawford Co. Fair.

9.If I was at BlogHer, I would miss out on doing the laundry I have put off all week, on redoing the shelves in the pantry of the new house, on putting finishing touches on my bedroom, organizing the spare bedroom.

10. If I was at BlogHer this weekend.. I would miss this awesome opportunity from COZI... I am planning on updating my brand new Cozi account this weekend.. it looks great!

If you don't mind please leave a comment to help me win this Blog Scholarship.. Thanks!!!

  6. Hope your staycation is a vacation for you, but I know you all to well, it will be a busycation, and will be gone before you knowing it, cause you cannot just sit still. I am sure you will find lots to do. and before you know it your kids will be back (all of them) and my will mostly be going back to school, that is when my vacation starts when just my 2 and 3 year olds are back. Have fun for the next two weeks.

  11. Ok - I'm here and I'm posting a comment. I'm not a blogger by any means but since your email was laden with desperation and a hint of harrassment I thought it best to go ahead and post a comment.

    Good Luck,
    Monica

  30. That's so sweet! You and your SIL must be very close. I probably should have included laundry on my list, but I hate laundry.

  31. You are darn tootin' that I would be sitting at home pouting if you were at Blogher without me. Ah, you know you would not having any fun without me there with your anyway. Who would you make fun of?

    Have fun on your Staycation, relax and enjoy YOURSELF for a change.

  32. Awesome to have a staycation... those are our favorite! You will love love love Traders (what us Trader Joes obsessed call it).
    I like the HP movies as well as the books... you just have to go into it thinking that it WILL be different from the book. Just like any book into movie :)

  33. Even Chubba has been to Starbucks! You are really missing out. I have to be careful, or he snatches my drink & finishes it. Chubba + caffeine = bad news!
