BlogHer Bound

Well, I can’t believe I am actually sitting in Chicago for the BlogHer conference! I have never been to Chicago, in fact, Montgomery Alabama is the farthest west I’ve ever been! I know, I live a sheltered life, but that’s what you get for being a Geeky Blogger. {wink}

After the Wii Mommies had a screaming, running union in the airport, we checked in and made our way to Chicago Burger Company. Awesome burgers, pretty expensive, but great view of the river. We happened to run into some awesome bloggers who totally picked us out of the crowd. We immediately recognized most of them from their half-inch tall Twitter avatars!

Back in February, when I attended Blissdom, I had no idea I would be so lucky as to go to BlogHer. I have several people to thank for making this trip possible!!

First, EA SPORTS Active is responsible, not only for my losing 8 pounds over the last six weeks, but sponsoring my entire trip to the conference, with the Wii Mommies! We’re hosting a party on Friday night at the House of Blues, with EA SPORTS Active, More Than Mommy and!

Our EA Summer In the City party is featured in the Kirtsy Party Alertsy! Check it out for a list of all the cool parties at BlogHer!

Hanes is also “supporting” me, literally, with a selection of garments, which you will hopefully not actually see. (Well, except the tank top and t-shirt) I have been a fan of Hanes for a few years, since I threw Victoria’s Secret under the bus switched to Hanes Barely There.

And just as importantly, Zhu Zhu Pets (via MomSelect) sent an awesome new toy for my kids while I’m gone. What are Zhu Zhu Pets? You will just have to see for yourselves, click here. So the girls have a cute little hamster to take care of until I get back! It’s not just your average battery operated hamster, let me tell you! This thing will go up the tunnel, run on the wheel, then make it’s way back through the tunnel! It even drives a car, seriously! Vidoes coming soon!

A couple of announcements:

  • I will not be broadcasting Get Real, from MomTV this week, since I’m her at BlogHer, but join me next Thursday at 1PM est, as we “Get Real” about cleaning! You’ll be laughing in the dust bunnies, believe me.
  • Wii Mommies WILL be broadcasting our radio show Friday at 1PM from BlogHer, and we have prizes to awars, both LIVE and on air, so be sure to listen here:
