I am Going to SXSW!


I have very exciting news to share with you guys.  I am going to my first social media conference this weekend!  I am flying down to Austin, TX to attend South by Southwest.  Not only am I excited about attending this conference but also because this will means I will finally get to meet most of the other Elevenmoms.

I have been giving the opportunity to attend this event thanks to the sponsorship from Walmart and Colgate-Palmolive.  I grew up using Colgate-Palmolive products (think Colgate toothpaste, toothbrushes, Softsoap, Irish Spring, Lady Speedstick and many other products).  So I was very honored when they agreed to sponsor my trip to South by Southwest.  This conference promises a lot of activities and parties.  It seems it is one of the biggest social media events of the year as it involved media, music and film.

As excited as I am, I am also very worried.  This is the first time I leave my two kids and my husband alone for three nights!!  I will be honest, I am really worried.  However, my husband assures me there’s nothing to be worried about (easier said…).  I am leaving them behind with fridge and freezer stocked with food.

I will be gone Friday to Monday but don’t expect anything to slow down around here.  The coupon matches for the Drug stores will be going live on their regular schedule.  I also expect to be updating live from SXSW, so come back to share this with me.
