We had such a BLAST at the event, we were served an awesome lunch, wraps for grown-ups and chicken strips and fries for the kids, guess which side I ate from? After all, I AM a kid at heart 😉
There was an awesome speech and presentation, along with a super fun moment for all, a giveaway shower of toys for all the children!!!
All in all we had a blast, we received our own Smart Charger and I have been using it ever since.
With a Family that has always been on the Go!, full of children’s activities, Military Events, Deployments, Births, Birthday’s, Holidays, and everyday funny moments, I have carried a small and a big camera with me ALWAYS, as well as the kids music players (CD players because this Family can’t afford anything more), and the newest addition to our Family since this Christmas has been the boys hand held video game devices (which each use 4 AA batteries) The DIJI. (Let me tell you that my 2 little boys HYPER-active-energy-filled-bodies have sometimes been so quiet with their games, that I forgot they were home!)
Do I have to mention how many batteries we need for the Wii remotes for a Family of 8!?!?
P.S. the girls were too lazy to go get their purses from the car for the picture :/
With the Energizer Smart Charger, I have never had that problem again!!!
It has a meter that tells you just how charged your batteries are, and how much longer until they are fully charged. It has helped me capture so many memories because I knew how long I would have before I was going to need the kids batteries 😉
The Energizer Smart charger has LED windows that show the countdown of charging as well as showing you if a non-rechargeable or dead battery has been placed in the charger.
Did you know that it’s EnergyStar Certified!?!?!?
No more missed pictures!!!!!
So I am SO SUPER EXCITED to announce that I AM attending BlogHer 2010!!!
Being that I have always been shy I was scared at first, but learning from my experience in attending so many blogging and social events lately, I have learned that Bloggers in fact DO NOT BITE!!!
I am so excited that everytime I think about being at BlogHer and meeting everyone from the registration desk, staff, and events that I just GLOW!!!
I know my passion has driven many Family and friend’s to buy what I have, to buy what I RAVE about, and to fall in love with certain products as I have, I Blog and am into Social Media for the love of it, not for the products or recognition, I love reaching out to the world and sharing my experiences and loves.
As a Finalist for the “Blog of the Year” Award from InfluenceSD, and a Finalist for the Sony Blogger Contest and here, I know I have what it takes to get my Influence and heart out to the world, I have turned down several sponsor offers to BlogHer10 because the companies were not who I wanted to represent to a World of Social Media Influencers during BlogHer10.
After having my Family go to the ends of the world while I care for my Grampa in the Nursing home from 8am-8pm 7 days a week for the last 3 months, and the 24hr stays during his last 3 hospital stays that were 4-20 days in length, I decided that I owed my children a summer. Their entire summer vacation has been spent helping me care for Grampa in the nursing home, so I made a decision that I am taking my whole Family to New York for a much DESERVED vacation!!! You have to just IMAGINE how drained and un-energized MY body, mind, and soul are from dealing and caring for my Grampa, though I love him to death, his hip & shoulder fractures, along with his brain hemorraghes on each side (all from the fall), and his worsening Dimentia, have taken a serious toll on me, I NEED to have MY batteries RE-CHARGED!!!
This trip to NY will seriously RE-charge our ENTIRE Family 😉
So what better thing to do than to work my butt off trying to sell all the recyclable cans and bottles I can find, cutting down on all things possible from our grocery bills, and fast food, to give my Family the one thing that we ALL need? This will be our opportunity to connect again, to remind ourselves what Family is all about, and for Daddy and his Family to bond with my kids while I am at BlogHer10 and all things BlogHer Related!!!!
In addition, the closest Military installations that will be having stand-by flights around the time we have to leave are a few hours from NY, so we will HAVE to rent a car just to get to NY, we are also prepared to eat sandwiches the entire 2 week stay in order for us to be able to enjoy the sights. Our flight back home will also be around a 3 day stand-by wait to San Diego, Ca. We are prepared to do and live with the least means necessary while we are out there, in order to be able to go and have fun, so this $2,000.00 Sponsorship from Energizer would be just a dream come true for our Family.
I KNOW I HAVE the DRIVE, PASSION, EXCITMENT, and LOVE for Energizer Brand, that I know I will be an asset for the company during BlogHer10, I will walk, talk, and Socialize with the entire world while I am there, as well as Twitter, and Facebook my fingers off 😉
I will definitely be using my Smart Charger to charge my camera batteries every chance I get, because we all know we want to capture all the memories while at BlogHer10 and of course take pictures to show the world of our long time Blogging friends that we haven’t met in person 😉 Did I mention this is my First Blogging conference?!?! Pictures and Networking Galore!!!!!
If I win this Sponsorship, I promise to make Energizer T-shirts for my entire Family to wear during our ENTIRE 2 week stay in New York and take pictures to prove it!!!
If approved I will also hold giveaways through Twitter, and my Blog for some of the “Sought after” USB’s 😉
