Okay, maybe I'm not on a quest for greatness but I'm on a quest!
Energizer and the BareFootMommies are running a contest for a $2000 scholarship to go to BlogHer 2010 in New York City. In this contest, entrants are supposed to write about why they should be a "Chargher" and represent Energizer at the biggest, baddest conference around town.
So I mulled it over and decided: what did I have to lose?
Seriously, if I spend some time type up all my interesting, amazing and talented attributes what am I going to lose? Besides, if I lose (he he) you all will get to find out how interesting, amazing and talented I am!
Like you don't know already though, huh?
Okay, here we go.
The reason I, SuZ, should be a Chargher for Energizer batteries at the BlogHer 10 Conference is because I am desperate to get away from my life for awhile (haven't heard that before, have you?).
Once again, seriously. Let's take a look at my life.
I am a breastfeeding Mama to a 5 month old so I don't attain much sleep. Add into that fine mix a 3 year old toddler who has suddenly become so over-enthusiastic that it makes me raise an eyebrow when she launches into her tirades. Oh, and don't forget my husband... my dear husband of 9 years. The one that is so busy I have to actually pencil time in the datebook to see!!
Oh, wait... there's the 40+ horses on our property, the two dirty pigs, two shedding dogs that whine all day long, one tabby cat who eats rats. The rows of corn, green beans and carrots and the in laws that reside along with us on 24 acres of hot, hot, hot Florida sun.
Wow... that's a lot huh?
See why I need a break?
I need to bust out of this redneck paradise and go to a fancy city that requires you wear more than Adidas shorts, a sports bra and flip flops. I need to escape to connect with my fellow Moms and soak up swag. I need to get out there, bust out of my comfort shell and meet all these amazingly intelligent and talented (do you see a theme here?) women and feel apart of something huge and that has absolutely nothing to do with horse poop!
Besides I clean up nicely and am willing to promote Energizer like a crazy lady.
If I'm picked I promise not to even pack a single pair of flip flops or anything camo.... I swear.
