Top 10 Reasons I’m Excited to Stay Home With My Family This Coming Weekend

I need your help!
Blogher is currently going on.  My DH has patiently listened to me whine for the last month about not going. It’s a big conference for bloggers to meet, network, play, etc.  Didn’t get on top of things in order to make it happen.  Mom of 2 boys just announced that Cozi will be giving away $100 to 15 mom bloggers NOT attending Blogher.  Picture 6
Here’s the catch, I NEED comments!  It’s the 15 bloggers with the most comments who will win.  It’s always nice to have some extra cash, so any comments would be appreciated! And if you comment here, you can have 5 extra entries to any giveaway you want!

And now, without further ado, here is my ….

Top 10

1.  I’m excited to stay home because…I’m not 🙂  I’m headed to Country Inn and Suites for a few nights.  The first night will be just DH and I.  Heaven. It’s only a 1/2 hour from where we live, but it’s time. alone. with DH.

2. Staying home means more time to kiss cute little cheeks.

3. I don’t do well when I’m separated from my family for very long. Can we say separation anxiety?

4. Less laundry and cleaning. I know if I were at Blogher, I’d come home to cleaning and like 15 loads of laundry!

5. There’s nothing better than seeing Rowan who’s 18 months jumping up and down in his crib when I come in to get him. I wouldn’t want to miss that.

6. Between our jobs, DH and I don’t get to spend a lot of time with each other or as a family. I’m looking forward to just spending time with my 3 men.

7. Seeing my sister. My sisters rock, and my older sister is watching my boys tomorrow night. If I went out of town for the weekend I wouldn’t get to gab and catch up.

8. R&R – I’m definitely going to kick my feet up rejuvenate this weekend.

9. I get to play around with Cozi, which will help me get organized. I need it badly!

10. Because I’m staying home from Blogher this year, I will be that much more excited to go next year!
