Ragu Brand Ambassador NYC Trip #raguweekend @ragusauce

I am just back from a fabulous trip to NYC where about 27 of us Mom Bloggers got together to learn more about Ragu & Ragu Brand Mom’s The Word on Dinner program. The trip was scheduled and I packed light for the overnight trip.

This is the first time I was going to be flying completely alone and only the second time flying in my life, so I decided not to pack all of my hair gels and what not. I am still not up to par on the restrictions of what you can carry onto a plane these days. I boarded a propeller plan in Manchester, NH without any issues.

I took a few pics from the plane for my sons to see a big plane, well actually this is technically a small plane, but to my sons it was huge! I sat back and tried to see what I could see from my window seat on the way to NYC airport. After about a 50 minute flight I arrived in NYC.

I was picked up at the NYC airport in an Escalade which was pretty stylish, thank you Ragu! My driver wasn’t too talkative, but was very professionally friendly and even walked me to the door of the hotel I stayed at. Once I was inside the hotel lobby and all checked in, I walked up to my room to check it all out.

I met friends down in the lobby for lunch and after that I capture a shot of my best friend @mommadjane and new friend @angengland while we waited for cocktail hour.

Thursday was more of a “meet n greet” kind of night, we had cocktail hour and a fabulous dinner where Kim Kardashian actually ate & filmed right behind where we were sitting.

I had a wonderful time meeting and greeting all of the Ragu Brand Mom Ambassadors and the PR firm representatives. Dinner was pretty good and the socializing was fab! After dinner @mommadjane , @onescrappyblog and I walked around Times Square before retiring to bed.

More stories to come about my experiences at Unilever on Friday and the Ragu Brand Trip as a whole!

Disclosure: I am a Ragu Brand Mom Ambassador and I do receive compensation for this program. This NYC trip was free. All opinions and experiences are that of my own.

Always Thought Of Eyeglasses as Stylish

I wear eyeglasses, but I don’t really need them. I simply have a small prescription to bring things forward so my eyes don’t get strained out when working on the computer for hours upon hours. I received my glasses years ago while working as a bank teller, eight to nine hours in front of a computer screen really made my eyes stress out.

When you are looking around for glasses because you have to wear them all of the time or at least more frequently than I wear mine, it’s important to make sure your eyeglasses fit your style & face in a way that suits your personality!

Zenni Optical has so many eyeglasses to choose from, making it nearly impossible not to find a frame that works for your facial structure and needs. If I were shopping on Zenni Optical I would go with one of their darker, maybe black colored frames, but if my daughter needed eyeglasses she would go for more of a pink frame.

Having an eyeglass store that allows you to pick and choose at an affordable price the style that matches your lifestyle is very important, at least to me.

What is important to you when choosing the best eyeglasses for your own needs?

My idea of a 30th Bash for Little Ole Me

I am turning 30 on October 28th and I swear I wanted to have a big, grand birthday party. I love birthdays, I don’t care about anything but having cake, ice cream and people over. I get cake and I get ice cream every year, this year it is my 30th and so some companies really should see why it would be totally beneficial to get all of my Mom Bloggy friends together, full trip to NH for them, tents and/or campers to set up shop right here at my house.

Bonfires, cake, ice cream, music, socializing and so much more! We would be tweeting like crazy … seriously! Even at a local hotel or campground, can you imagine this small NH town being bombarded by mom bloggers? I think it sounds like a grand ole time. Why not? We bombarded NYC recently on a fun trip for the Ragu Mom Ambassadors and that trip is what made me realize that I need more friends around here.

So that is my idea – in a nutshell get companies to sponsor my awesome 30th birthday party right here in NH close to my home or at my home where we all get together for an awesome night or weekend of fun!

Who’s game? And who’s pitching the idea? ;-)

BlissDom ’12, Type-A Parent ’12, Blogher ’12

I am not really into traveling and being away from my children frequently but this year I made a vow to start traveling more and in June I went to Type-A Parent Conference in NC, it was amazing! I actually enjoyed the flight and enjoyed meeting so many other Mom and Dad bloggers!

After “getting my feet wet” with Type-A my eyes were opened to the idea of learning and networking at more conferences. I have always thought about BlogHer as it was in NYC not that long ago and in 2012 it will be in NYC again. This is only a five hour drive for me, I really could get away with simply finding sponsorship for the actual conference and hotel then drive there in a rental car or something. I love this idea, but I don’t want to go to this HUGE conference alone, I would prefer to partner up with another blogger who “knows the ropes” about this conference so I am not too overwhelmed as I have heard it is HUGE.

Next I thought about BlisDom ’12 and can purchase my ticket now at a pretty reasonable price, but I would have to also pay for airfare and a hotel which means unless I get sponsorship for this conference, I can’t go. I would really love to attend this one because I want to get to Nashville, being a country music fan and all. I have also heard that BlissDom is very friendly and relatively small in size, which wouldn’t overwhelm me to attend alone.

Last but not least is Type-A Parent Conference, which is a no brainer for me this year. I will be seeking sponsorship for this conference because I don’t care if I room alone, travel alone or anything – I simply LOVED Type-A so much that I know this is a conference I will attend every year going forward!

I know I can’t imagine going to three conferences in 2012 and being away from my “babies” that many times, but I am open to the idea if I can find a way to get to at least two in 2012. What helps you make a decision on which conferences to attend? How do you travel so much without your children and not feel guilty about it?
