I'm going to #BlogHer17 *tosses confetti*

I'm going to #BlogHer17 in Orlando!

Last year I had the honor of attending BlogHer.  BlogHer is the crème de la crème of social media conferences.  BlogHer is the conference all other conferences wanna be when they grow up.  BlogHer is... well you get the picture of my luv for BlogHer.

Our BlogHer '16 trip was a vacay in itself.  My Ark Diamond Diva sis, Cin, and I loaded up the Kia Sorrento and took our sons and her daughter on the road trip of a lifetime. 

This Road Warrior Diva with fam in tow planned an epic adventure with stops in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a swim at the Blue Hole.

We were all were looking forward to the trip. 

Me?  It's BlogHer. 

Cin?  Finally seeing what the hubbub is about this "blogging" thing. 

Cass?  First trip to Cali. 

The kids?  I don't think they heard anything about the events or pristine list of speakers other "Kim K". Oh yeah, Kim K was one of the featured guest speakers last year.

Funny story.  I opted to forego the Kim K. luncheon figuring it'd be heavily attended and went to a Lamps Plus luncheon - which was amazing.  After lunch I met the kids in the lobby and was surprised to see them looking sad.  Really sad. 

"Did you eat?" I asked.
"Yes ma'am", they replied.

"Did you see Kim K?"
"Yes ma'am", they replied sadly.

"OMG, what's wrong?  Did something happen?"
Both boys sunk deeper into the lobby couch.

Turns out their phones died.  Sympathy?  Nope

1. They were at a social media conference.  
2. Not just ANY ol' social media conference they were at BlogHer... THE Social Media Conference.  There were plenty of places to charge their phones.

Fortunately, they managed to snap a little of Kim K's Meet and Greet and it just so happened to be the day SnapChat released a feature allowing saving of snaps. 

Thank goodness.

This year, I'm going to BlogHer and will have my brother, my twin sons and my nephew in tow.  Family.  BlogHer.  Orlando.  This can ONLY be amazing.  *screams in excitement*

I'm going to BlogHer 17?  Are you??

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
