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


A weekend at BlogHer would be such a thrill; but this weekend at home will soon fit the bill...

  1. The weeds in the garden need tending that’s true…
  2. And the weather is perfect – the skies are so blue.
  3. Princess Nagger will charm me with her sweet hugs and kisses…
  4. And Hovering Hubby would sure miss his Mrs.!
  5. Quiet mornings with coffee from my cool Keurig pot...will make me quite happy; I like it a lot.
  6. I have Blogs to hop onto for Blog Hop ‘09...
  7. My visits to everyone will suit me just fine.
  8. I have new wine to make and more wine in my stash…
  9. Staying home will certainly save me some cash.
  10. Exploring with Cozi will be so much fun… Getting things organized is task number one.
That is the end of this fun little rhyme - I hope that you liked it...will you gift me your time? For comments are needed on this very post...the winners are chosen on who has the most... ;)


The Fine Print:

Wonder what's up with these posts popping up all over the blogosphere? Cozi has generously offered a $100 sponsorship for BlogHer '10! I would so love to go, so this would be a great start! The 15 bloggers with the most comments by midnight on Monday (July 27th) will be chosen for the $100 sponsorship... the sponsored moms will be announced on Mom of 2 Boys, Wife of 1 on Thursday (July 30th) and on Twitter. (Cozi will subjectively break any comment count ties.)

Poetry-mode inspired by blueviolet - thanks, my bloggy friend (and BlogHer 2010 Roomie! WooHoo!), for always inspiring me! :)

Stacy, I wish I could come up with such a fun rhyming comment, but your poem was great fun to read and every one of the 10 sound like a good reason to stay home.
