Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with my Family This Coming Weekend

This weekend is a huge event for many, BlogHer '09. Unfortunately, it wasn't a possibility for me this year. Although, I'd love to go next year and meet many of the wonderful ladies I talk to online.
However, Cozi is sponsoring 15 moms who aren't going to BlogHer. We just need to tell them why we're happy to stay at home.

1. Lots of snuggles from my 4 year old. I've never been away from him, so I'm not sure how I'd handle going on a trip by myself.

2. A trip to the county fair on Saturday. Sharing funnel cakes with the hubby. A perfect date night.

3. The chance to sleep in my own bed. I'm partial to sheets I know are clean.

4. Potato picking on Saturday morning. So much more fun than it sounds. 3 kids, lots of dirt, and some fresh potatoes for next week.

5. Napping on Sunday afternoon. I look forward to it every week while hubby hangs out with the little one.

6. Pizza date with my sister Sunday night. Just for fun.

7. Playing in the sandbox with the kiddos. It's a weekly routine to spend hours out there making sand cakes. And it's actually fun.

8. Catching up on my posting and reading my favorite blogs. I feel so much more relaxed when I get things done.

9. Being able to stay in my pjs whenever I want.

10. Have a chance to check out Cozi, a site dedicated to helping you get organized. I could definitely use the help.

How are you planning to spend your weekend?

And if you leave a comment on this post to help me win, I'll give you 5 extra entries into my current contests-just be sure to add 5 entries there after you comment here. Thanks!

Tiffany said...

The fair AND funnel cakes? Sounds fabulous :)

Amanda said...

Potato picking is fun. My cousins and I always liked it as kids because it involved dirt.

WackyMummy said...

You had me at #5! LOL. Unfortunately I haven't even thought about BlogHer, but now I'm starting to think about what a wonderful opportunity to meet in person the people that I've found here. I have some particular favorites... ;)

Hope you have a great weekend with all your activities planned. =)

Erin Tales said...

Yes... snuggling is definitely a priority!!! :)

Kelli said...

We take a nap almost every Sunday and it is pure joy! I'm a homebody so this is right up my alley.

Amanda said...

I don't know about your other contests, but I wanted to say I liked your list. I would love to one day go to a blogging conference, I am sure they are tons of fun!

Hootin' Anni said...

Nothing like staying home/doing things with... and enjoying family all weekend. The county fairs are always so much fun.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Chanda said...

Have a great weekend! I think I am too new to blogging as I cannot seem to get excited about BlogHer! Maybe I will feel differently next year as I meet more great bloggers! Have fun at the fair, we are going to one tonight to enjoy the funnel cake goodness (though I am determined to not eat a whole one myself since I've gained 10 pounds these last couple of months...good luck to me!)

Frantic Holly said...

Hope you have a great weekend

sandy said...

I could go for a funnel cake right now! Have a great weekend:0)

Party MOMster said...

I think I've been inspired to try some of your ideas. I'm in for: staying in my PJs and taking a nap. I didn't know anything about Cozi before, but get organized is a rotating goal - - that and losing 10 pounds. Good luck!
