Weekly Moment of Gratitude! My #Electronics Got Pimped Edition!

My Electronics Got Pimped!

What I am grateful for:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ My Love of Twitter Parties -  Before I started hosting them, I was attending them. Lot's of them. I became known as the official Twitter Party DJ because I would be the one to make fun song suggestions based on the theme of the party I was attending. Some might even call me the life of the twitter party! (Well OK, bragging just a bit!). But when I'm not hosting I still love attending them, I love the fast pace, catching up with my online friends and being introduced to brands in a fun and interactive way. I recently attended one and it paid off big time! My Television just got pimped thanks to Verizon's Somos Fios! I won the Grand Prize in their recent twitter party, a 32 inch Samsung HDTV Television! Check it out below!

Don't you just love my super cute Turkey Hill Cow sitting happily on top of the box?

You can get social with them to on Twitter and Facebook and via twitter use the hashtag #SomosFios, and hint hint, feel free to tell them on twitter and facebook that you would like them to host a twitter party with Ascending Butterfly, aka @Ascending1 as the host!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - New iPod Touch - While it wasn't from a Twitter Party, I did win a sweet new iPod Touch from BlogHer! I have been following the series of giveaways from their Life Well Lived Moments Sweepstakes, and I found out recently that I won Sweepstakes #8. Because to some degree bloggers often live their lives out loud, it makes many think we share often or easily, but I'm actually very much the opposite, I'm pretty shy mostly, and essay type entries where I have to share something personal aren't so easy for me. So when I found out that I won I was truly surprised and touched. I felt grateful that doing something (that perhaps for others comes easier) like sharing a personal story paid off in such a big way. I'm a total tech nerd, it's the side of me that doesn't come across on these pages nearly enough, but I have always been the one who sets everything up when it comes to new electronics or computers. And you know what's super cool? There is still time for YOU to get in on the fun, they posted Sweepstakes 9 in the Life Well Lived Moments Sweepstakes! You can enter to win a brand new iPod Touch and a $50 iTunes Gift Card by sharing your Life Well Lived Moment regarding an important tool in your life at:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Out and About - I have had the opportunity to attend some fun events about town (the benefits of living in New York City is that there is something going on pretty much at all times) and I'll keep posting more recaps as often as possible!

What are YOU most grateful for this week Butterfly?

What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for, and the more reasons that the universe will send you to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
