It’s been a few MANY weeks since I posted my BlogHer’11: The Fun, The Food & The Freebies! Part 1…..
I intended on following it up with a Part 2 but life ran away with me. But here it is! So let’s get on with it!
I had 2 Fabulous Meals at BlogHer that I wanted to talk about. Neither was an official BlogHer meal but they were during our BlogHer adventure!
The first meal was at Hash House A Go Go (courtesy of the fabulous Dodge folks: Lisa, Andrea and Joe). We were forewarned about the “HUGENESS” of the meals. Some people heeded the warning and split plates. I was a rebel and ordered my own meal.
And I had the best meal out of the group… <—In my humble opinion 😉
Stop drooling please.
By the way, it was even yummier than you can imagine! And NO I didn’t eat it all. But I did eat ALL the big snickers chunks!
My 2nd fabulous meal was on the last night of BlogHer after our preview screening of The Help! <—If you haven’t seen it yet, you should!!
We ate at Maryjanes, The Hard Rock Hotels’ hip diner style joint.
I ordered the Hot Elvis! And if you can’t guess what a Hot Elvis is.. It’s Peanut butter, bananas, and griddled whiteboy bread. Seriously Yummy!
(My picture doesn’t do it justice.)
And here are some of my favorite Swag Goodies from BlogHer!
A Fun Vera Bradley Lunch Sack from the UPS/Collective Bias party. I love that it’s super cute and girly. Sometimes I need a little girly around here!
I love these Vix flip flops from the Cheap Sally party. A bit pricey but they are seriously comfy!!
And aren’t these Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats great! I totally try to avoid uncomfortable shoes at all costs but these are still a great idea!
I thought I would be the hero coming home with this super cool Waterpik shower sprayer. It WAS perfect for our newly remodeled Master Bath… except that Peter thought to surprise me while I was gone to BlogHer and finish the job! LOL Funny how those things happen! Don’t fret though. we are saving this one for the 2nd bath!
Check out the HUGE(and Yummy) bar of chocolate courtesy of Fresh & Easy. I wish Fresh & Easy would open a location in Tucson.
I also picked up a couple of the new Knorr’s Homestyle Stock. I love how compact they are! Each tub makes 3 1/2 cups of broth.
I also picked up a Mother’sTouch thermometer at the Mom Select Swag Suite. We have already used it a few times and it works great!
Quinn LOVES our new Hexbug and so does Elliot! We definitely need to get more of them! Our one Hexbug is lonely!
And lastly Sprouts was handing out these fabulous little star/pinwheel crayons that are PERFECT for little ones!
And I mentioned in my 1st post that I “met” The Coupon Goddess… Here is my proof!

She was the ONE blogger I wanted to meet at BlogHer. Unfortunately she was in terrible accident a month before BlogHer and is still recovering. I knew ahead of time that I wasn’t going to truly meet her but was pleasantly surprised to find her “mini me” version at the Clever Girls Party!
BlogHer’11 was a blast! And if you plan on going to BlogHer’12 just be prepared for lots of craziness and no rest. It was exhausting but well worth it!
I now I have my sights on Blissdom12, hopefully I can find some sponsors to help get me there!
