PICK ME - PICK ME for Brandcation: Blog Lodge

Many of you know that I had the ULTIMATE privilege of attending Brandcation in November 2010 with 32 of the MOST fabulous women I have ever met.  I learned so much from those ladies, had so much fun, and made some of the best friends I have ever had, and still have.

This October Momdot and Brandfluential is holding another Brandcation, this time in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in this absolutely gorgeous Log Cabin.....

Photos from

Part of the itinerary is to go to Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, Titanic Museum, The Old Mill, and The Wax Museum... how AWESOME does that sound? I have ALWAYS wanted to see each of those places, especially since the Dixie Stampede here in Orlando closed.

When I heard about this trip, I was SO excited because I really wanted to go... so Bill and I talked about it and said we were going to save up some money and buy my ticket in a few weeks... WELL, that was NOT to be had! The tickets sold out in a day and a half... my heart broke, there went my chance to see those wonderful women who are so special to me. Maybe next time Bill and I said to each other. =(

BUT GUESS WHAT????  I have one more chance at going to Brandcation!! How is that you say?

Well, there is a special giveaway over at Momdot... Yippee!! (pick me... pick me.... pick me).  It is an amazing giveaway also... the always fabulous Momdot is sponsoring the ticket, the outstanding Minnesota blogger Life with Levi is sponsoring the lodging, AND to help with travel and/or incidental expenses, the spectacular Toni from Just Stop Screaming will be throwing in $100 cash stipend.  That is just incredible for whoever wins... even if it's not me. (pick me... pick me... pick me.)

The only thing you need to do to enter the giveaway is answer one of the two following questions:

1) WHY you want to attend and what it would mean to you


2) WHY you want to go to Pigeon Forge and the place you are most excited to visit listed on our iten up there.

So, if you can't tell by know that I have already answered WHY I want to go, I'll tell you again. The group of women who attend Brandcation events are the most friendly, smart, loving, and most important to me, supportive women I have ever met. I still talk to several of the women I met and roomed with every day via email, Facebook, and even texting.  We are there for each other during the good times and the bad times. We are there to laugh, cry, and support each other no matter what we or our families are going through. I know there are some things that I could never have gotten through without these ladies and I cannot wait to see them again to give them each a great big hug!

So even if I am not the lucky one who gets to go to TN, THANK YOU so much to the three wonderful bloggers offering this terrific giveaway to an outstanding event. And good luck to all the ladies who enter!

**UPDATE: My absolutely darling of a husband has just picked up two weeks of work at the Dry Cleaners he used to work at to help defray any costs that may come up JUST IN CASE I am the VERY LUCKY woman who wins this MOST AWESOME ticket...... Do you not just love this man?

I know what it's like to want something SO bad and end up not being able to go; for me it's because of my health. But you have this incredible opportunity and I hope, wish, and PRAY you're chosen as the winner because you are totally deserving!

Fingers, toes, legs, eyes...Whatever I gotta cross is crossed :)
