"Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family this Coming Weekend." (Please comment ;>)

Practically everyone in the blogosphere has heard of BlogHer-the blogging event of the year. It's where all the bloggers around descend, network, exchange notes, meet PR sponsors and more. It's basically a great event and lots of bloggers are going......and lots of us aren't for various reasons.

Being new to the blogging scene, I just recently learnt that BlogHer actually existed and personally think its sounds fun.....maybe next year? Anyways Momof2Boys Wife of 1 decided to host a "Not going to BlogHer" party on her blog and Cozi jumped in and said "Let me award 15 bloggers with the most comments on this particular post topic with a 100$ giveaway" Isn't that cool? Two of my blog pals are participating and I thought, why not? I won't lose anything, so here goes......


"Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family this Coming Weekend."

  1. Weekends are family time with Hubby and Bunny girl and honestly the only 2 days in the week where we can do fun things as a family ALL DAY.....now isn't that reason enough to be excited?
  2. We have a Dora themed 1st birthday party to attend and I wouldn't miss it for the world.....these friends are so precious to us !!!
  3. Our Pastor celebrates his big 50 this Sunday at church. He's so special to us....would I want to miss being a part of the celebrations?.....na-uh!
  4. I've not stocked up on the cheap/free school supplies available this week. Just one more day left to do it ;>
  5. I really need to schedule out the giveaways for the Back to School 31 day Carnival . I'm so excited .....there actually are more than 31 great giveaways scheduled in the 31 day period....woo-hoo!!!
  6. We need to take Bunny girl to see her Doc to get her pre-school enrollment health sign offs done. (The day to start school is quickly approaching......sob!)
  7. If I was out of town for Blog Her, Bunny girl's scheduled playdates for the week would not happen and she soooooooo looks forward to even just a few minutes of 'play-time' with 2 of her best friends Jo and Vic :> (Seeing my Bunny girl happy is such a satisfying experience......all you Moms and Dads out there can vouch for that!)
  8. If I'd been away at BlogHer 09 I would never ever have had a God appointed meeting at the local library yesterday morning. I met a lady who hails from close to where we live in India. After talking we found out we studied in the same place in a totally different country and after talking some more, we found out that she was my childhood friend's sister in law.....we screamed so loud in excitement, much to the librarian's horror! The world is soooooo TINY!!! She has 3 year old twin princesses.......yay, more playdates for Bunny girl!
  9. Sigh........I'll miss Bunny girl too much
  10. Double sigh......I'll miss Hubby tons too.
Please do leave a comment below to help the post get to the top 15 mark :> Merci Beaucoup!!!!....and why don't you join in the fun?

UPDATE: Possible giveaway?

Did the one year old put her (?) hand in the middle of the Dora birthday cake yet? Seems like they always do that for the photo!

Those are all awesome reasons.

I've actually been a bit(teeny weeny:) bit jealous of all who are attending BlogHer09. Living in the Caribbean with my husband in full time ministry and me a stay at home mom means that that was out of the question this year. If the Lord wills and provides maybe next year or the year after, or the year after that... Whatever. LOL!

Stopped by to say hi and wish you a Happy Sunday. Remember to renew your spirit today.

Hey! Thanks for visiting today, love the ideas you mentioned.
Hope you can win something!!! I never do!
For reasons to stay home with my family, well, I'd actually love to get away today as I am home with them all week. My husband works from home too. So...you can imagine.
I always make a yummy gourmet breakfast on Sundays and we do some house improvement.

Best of luck making the top 15!! I think Blogher would be fun, but I would come home to a disaster that I would not want to walk into!! Much easier to stay home and put out little fires.

If you had went to BlogHer you would have had a chance to meet the Energizer bunny. I actually took my daughter and hubbie with me to BlogHer...they toured the museums. But, staying at home has it's perks, too and it looks like you partied and networked anyway at home!!

My little guys hate it when I'm away. The bigger they are, the less they miss you, so since they're little for such a little time, I'd just rather stay:)
