I’m Going to SOFABU On the Road in Atlanta #SoFabUOTR

I am writing this post in exchange for a discounted conference ticket to SoFabU on the Road; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. #CollectiveBias   I have been a member of Social Fabric for many years and I feel like I learn something new and awesome about blogging with every campaign I do with them. They started doing online classes which are super amazing. I learned so much about photography with one class I took from them that I feel like I need to go back and fix four years worth of pictures. SO when I heard that they … [Read more...]

Make Blogging Easier with CoSchedule

I'm a mom, and I'm a blogger. That first bit is really, really important to me, because as much as I love blogging, I am a mother first. In order to save time and keep myself organized in the blogging part of my life, I've turned to CoSchedule, an amazing calendar plug-in for WordPress. It's saving me tons of time and is running my social media world for me. I honestly don't know what I'd do without it- it lets me get my blogging done in time and on schedule so I can focus on my kids the way I want to.   CoSchedule is a visual … [Read more...]

Rocking the 80’s with #Brandcation

On our last night at Brandcation, we got the chance to have fun rocking the 80's with our sponsor Flashing Blinky Lights. They provided us with the means to have a super awesome 80's party. We had lots of snacks like chips, several kinds of dips, candy from the 80's and fun party favors.  We also had pizza from Flatbread Pizza. I tried to do rainbow eyeshadow. I think I did pretty well. This is my complete outfit. I was rocking the 80's like I was actually in that decade. Which I was but not for very long. I love the 80's thoug because of … [Read more...]

Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Show #Brandcation

I saw a huge sign heading down the strip when I was going to my cabin for Brandcation.  It was for Dixie Stampede. I got really excited becuase I knew that was on our list of things to do. It looked like an awesome dinner show!  I checked them out on their Facebook page and on their Twitter and I knew I was in for a treat! They escorted us in and everyone was wearing period clothes. They were so very kind to us. I love the PR person, she was so likeable just from first handshake. After we got in and took our photo, we got to sit down on bench … [Read more...]

Hollywood Wax Museum Pigeon Forge, TN #Brandcation

Did you know that you can visit a whole slew of stars in Pigeon Forge?  Neither did I until I was set to go on my Brandcation trip and found out about the Hollywood Wax Museum Pigeon Forge TN.  First of all, I was kind of scared because I have seen both versions of House of Wax and neither ends well.  Then I was excited to see if they had Angelina Jolie and I was so going to take a picture of plain Jane me standing next to total hotness. The first thing we got to do when we walked in was take a picture with the giant ape. We were in its hand and … [Read more...]

My First Visit to the Titanic Museum Pigeon Forge TN

As a child, I always loved reading those stories about the brother and sister who traveled through time to fix things and solve mysteries. That is until I read the one that they went on the Titanic. They had to figure out what they needed to fix before the ship sank and they died. At the end of the book I think they both realized that they couldn't save anyone, they had barely been able to save themselves.  It so sad to me as a child because I knew that everyone they talked to, everyone who helped them even though they were strange kids from the … [Read more...]
