Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family this Coming Weekend

If you follow my tweets, you are sure to read my slightly bitter comments about missing out on the BlogHer conference taking place in Chicago. I was bitter. However, Cozi and Lisa of Mom of 2 Boys, Wife of 1 have made me a better person.

They have teamed up to offer 15 Mom bloggers the opportunity to earn $100. I don't know about you, but the whole reason I could not attend BlogHer 2009 had solely due to finances. Having an extra $100 to participate in retail therapy sounds really good at the moment (although buying groceries for my family would be the responsible thing to do).

In order to win this great sponsorship, you have to answer the question:

Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family this Coming Weekend

  1. I am able to participate in this great sponsorship by Cozi, and earn extra cash for my family.
  2. I do not have to hide in my room all day because no one wants to be my friend at BlogHer.
  3. I can eat tons of junkfood with my son and have someone to rub my belly when it aches.
  4. I can stay in pajamas all day and not have to worry about what to wear to tons of events.
  5. I can realize just how much I really do need to getaway.
  6. I can justify having a girl's night out as a substitute for not going to BlogHer.
  7. I can enter giveaways that end during BlogHer, thus increasing my chances to WIN, WIN, WIN.
  8. I can wash and dry the piles of laundry and boast about my domestication while the women in Chicago play catch-up upon their arrival back home.
  9. I can discover new blogs and make new friends from all around the world.
  10. I can search for sponsors for BlogHer 2010 so maybe Cozi can sponsor me next year...hint, hint.
You should really join Cozi. It takes literally 1 minute to sign-up. Besides, who can argue with Family Life. Simplified. I sure as heck can't.

You can also follow Cozi on Twitter.
