Motivation Monday: Weekly Moment of Gratitude!

What I am grateful for:

You can vote for Ascending Butterfly here:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - YOU! -  I decided not to give up after all the encouraging messages I received when I entered the last phase of The Big Reboot, they haven't announced the winner yet of that phase, but the entries do not carry over, so I wrote a new essay entry for the next phase, never say never right? I am entering for the newest phase and if you would like to show your support with a vote, I'd greatly appreciate it! PRESS HERE! (A one click daily vote, so if you voted once, you can vote again as long it wasn't today that you voted!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Good Stuff in the Mail! - I will admit that as a blogger, most days are great mail days, but I was really looking forward to something particular that finally arrived! During BlogHer I got the chance to attend the Getting Gorgeous Gift Suite and one of the sponsors that was there was a brand I am very well familiar with because my mom actually introduced me to them YEARS ago, Coldwater Creek. They have amazing customer service, and they were just as wonderful in person as I anticipated they would be. They were offering everyone who attended a pair of jeans of their choice, and they brought a wide variety of styles and sizes for us to try out. I selected the Trouser Jeans Style and they arrived in the mail this week!

Look at the lovely box the jeans arrived in!

The presentation was lovely and they included a personal note thanking ME for visiting their booth during Getting Gorgeous. I  mean really how super awesome and classy is that?

I will post pictures of me wearing them and a full review soon, when I tried them on I realized that when they arrived I would need to get them hemmed, so I have to visit my Tailor this week and have them hemmed before I can start wearing them.

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.

Wordless Wednesday: #GettingGorgeous During #BlogHer12 Edition

As promised Butterflies here are some more photos from my BlogHer 2012 experience, this week I thought I'd focus solely on the Getting Gorgeous event that was held offsite at The Warwick Hotel. As I was working BlogHer this time around, I couldn't stay as long as I would have normally and didn't get to meet every brand there, but I did have fun with the brands I did meet! Some years I wonder what I look forward to more, is it BlogHer itself or is it Getting Gorgeous? Probably an even mix of both, but I will say the Getting Gorgeous event is one I will gladly miss out on conference time for, with pleasure!

Coldwater Creek showed off a variety of fall fashions and attendees got to try on jeans and were also gifted with a pair sent straight to our homes. I cannot wait for these to arrive, I selected the 'trouser style' jeans! Isn't that brown 'blanket inspired' jacket FAB?

Easy Closets gave away jewelry organizers and showed off their amazing closet designs, I so need a closet makeover! I wish my closet was as organized as the demo closet!

Downy Infusions offered a super fun photo booth, you  know I had to ham it up!

I also met CVS, Mabels Labels and UnderBrella as well, but I didn't get a photo! Did you attend Getting Gorgeous During BlogHer12 too? I'd love to see your photos too, please feel free to post your link here!

Butterflies, I'm off to the inaugural year of Niche Mommy 2012 thanks to my fantastic sponsor Britax! I am filled with tons of pre-trip excitement, I can't wait to hit the big easy, New Orleans here I come!

Happy Wordless Wednesday Butterfly!
