Ten things my Relevant Roomies should know about me...

The Relevant Conference: Blessing my Family, Engaging the World

It's almost here!!!  Relevant 2011 is only a few days away!!  I am very late int he game doing this, but I didn't want to miss out.  :)  Here is my list of 10 things my Relevant roomies should know about me! 

1.  I am totally NOT a morning person.  Seriously, I envy those moms who wake up early in the morning, drink their coffee, and read the paper before the kids wake up, but in reality I generally have to drag myself out of bed! 

2.  I tend to sleep with my iPhone...yeah it's a bit weird, but generally when I lay down, I check my e-mail/twitter one last time before bed, so it sleeps with me.  I may or may not have been known to cuddle it like a teddy bear when sleeping in the past.

3.  I generally don't take a long time to get ready...my hair is pretty much gel and go  :)

4.  I hardly ever wear makeup in everyday life, however, I will be wearing it at Relevant.

5.  I am a photographer at heart, so don't be surprised if you see me constantly shooting pics even though it's only with my point and shoot.

6.  I hate talking on the phone.  Seriously, this is one you may not guess since I was a medical receptionist for years, but I even make my husband order the pizza.  The exceptions are my husband and my Mom...both of which I can talk on the phone to for an hour and not even blink.  LOL

7.  My husband claims that I sometimes snore; this however is untrue.  If you claim that he is correct, I may be tempted to insist that you are secretly in cahoots with him, and not believe you. 

8.  If I stay up REALLY late, I sometimes tend to talk VERY fast and ramble on and on...

9.  It is quite possible that I will show you 10000 pictures of my kids, as well as one of each dog and our bird over the course of the conference.  Consider yourself warned. 

10.  This is only my second blogging conference, the first being BlogHer 2010, and my first ever blogging conference where I don't know anyone in person...I admit I am a little nervous! 


Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little more!  I can't wait to meet everyone in a few days at Relevant 2011!!!!

General Mills and Sam's Club are helping in the fight against breast cancer!

>> Sunday, October 23, 2011

Pin It Now!


Unfortunately, most of us know someone that has been affected by breast cancer...it could be family, friends, or even yourself.  Dealing with the disease in any capacity makes have one thing in common...the wish to fight it!  We aren't alone with this wish!  As you probably know, October is breast cancer awareness month.  I personally believe that awareness is the number one weapon we currently have against this disease in which early detection is CRUCIAL!

Did you know that for 5 years, General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities, and this year they are making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects?  You can help make a difference by buying products you already love!  


Purchase specially-marked General Mills products like Cheerios and Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies at your local Sam’s Club and help decide how half of that contribution will be donated by voting at PinkTogether.com from now until April 14, 2012.  General Mills’ donations will be divided between two important Komen programs: theTreatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Voting results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012.

As if that's not awesome enough, General Mills and Sam's Club have provided a $25 Sam's Club gift card for one of my readers!!
