Blog Fest News!

Blog Fest is fast approaching, so I wanted to taunt you update you on a few things that Chesapeake Bay Woman and I have been working on.

Souvenir Tervis Tumblers have been ordered. Click Here to see a sample. If this link does not work, you'll just have to envision a 16 oz. tumbler with a blue crab on the front. On the back it says "Blog Fest 2009 Mathews, VA." There is also a travel lid for each tumbler. These cups are freezer/microwave/dishwasher safe, and have a lifetime warranty. Cost is $20.00 per tumbler (this is the actual cost) and includes the lid. Please let me know if you would like to reserve one, as I have only ordered 25, and Grandma J has reserved two! I have no problem placing an additional order if need be, but it's likely that they would not arrive in time for Blog Fest.

We have also come up with a little "Camp List" for attendees! YAY! These are merely suggestions, and are things that we thought might make your stay a bit more pleasant:)

-Lawn/Beach Chair


-Light Sweater/Sweatshirt (It may be breezy at night)

-Comfy Shoes

-Bathing Suit

-Bug Spray

-Beach Towel/Blanket

-Small Cooler

-Camera (DUH!) This item is forbidden from midnight to 6 a.m.!


Finally, for all of you crafty-types, we thought it would be fun to have a Blogger Bizarre Bazaar! Bring your goodies along, and let the ladies shop 'til they drop!

It's not too late to register for this three ring circus event!! If you'd like to join us, let us know ASAP!! You don't want to miss out on all of the fun!

Any questions?

I'm obviously being punished for using the strike-through feature. I've re-typed this stupid post three times, and now I'm just going to leave it like this!!! GAH!

Those tumblers are fantastic - I've seen others for sale in some of our local gift shops.

It's going to be here before you know it! Foolery has already sent wine.

I had to swear I wouldn't drink it all before the party.

Daryl said...

Count me in on a mug ..

I dont have a bathing suit, its in FL, do you think Mama would detour to South FL before heading to VA? Me either.

Maybe I can bring one of the beach/lawn chairs from Times Sq.

Daryl said...

Oh and I think if you go back to the first underline and close the tag it will stop taunting you

abb said...

I want one of those tumblers!
Lauren (MPM) is on the road and asked me to reserve one for her as well. How many are we up to now?

I Am Woody said...

I am SO hoping that I will be able to make it!!

Barking Mad! said...

I defintely know that BOTH Meg and I want to reserve one each.

I LOVE Tervis tumblers. LL Bean carries them and we have a set of 4 with Lighthouses on them. They were not cheap, but I can attest to the incredible durability of them!

I am super nervous about attending, but super excited too!

It sounds like it's going to be exciting!

Auds at Barking Mad!

Busy Bee Suz said...

All we use here is tervis. Well, and wine glasses...don't they have those yet?
I am hating missing this...ugghhh. You guys are going to have so much FUN!!

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

I am so excited! I need to get my calendar straight! I still have not done a thing to the camper. I do have nice tent with air beds for back up. A bathing suit?? yeah right! HHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

Unknown said...

I am so down on the craft sale!!! Woo hoos! Bring you money everyone...I will make up some great goodies!

We are so excited about the photos after midnight. If someone can not bring a lawn chair, let me know and we will bring extras. Hard Working Man and I will only be there from Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning.

The Good Eater said...

Sounds like a great Blog Fest is planned.

T said...

sound like it's going to be so much fun - I'm trying, I'm trying!

Hey - all the fun pics will happen during those hours!

Unknown said...

Just so I don't sound like a tumbler hog, I can wait for my second (or third) until you reorder, and you can send them to me because I know non attendees will want one of those so they can live the dream over the internet.

Daryl's right, you probably didn't close the first strike through. That happens to me too.

Woody better show up! Just saying.

I am way too excited... said...

Well, now you've just made me want to go even worse! (As if that's possible!)
I hope everyone has tons of fun!

Anonymous said...

I feel totally out of the loop on this one!!

BUT.. promise me you will have some fun JUST FOR ME!!! :)

Unknown said...

Noe Noe Girl, If I can wear a bathing suit you can too. Your getting wet either way.

Mental P Mama said...

Charlottesville sends its regards. I want my sippy cup. Now.

Meg McCormick said...

Does the tumbler come with a sippy-cup lid? Because CBW is going to need one.

My camera is broken, so watch out because I'm rockin' my 2MP cell phone camera with the 1.5-second delay. Photos guaranteed blurry or your money back.

Also, I think "bug spray" should have been, like second on the list. Right after wine.


Anonymous said...

Sippy Cup? I'm sure The Baroness and I both want one!

Caution/Lisa said...

I cannot begin to tell you how sad I am about not being at Blog Fest. I'm trying to find the upside of traveling thousands of miles in a van with my children to Texas while you're all visiting in Virginia.

It's going to take a while for me to come up with that upside.

Unknown said...

I don't even know how to use the strike thru feature! I wish I could come. I keep trying to talk Gary into letting me. He thinks I am a wee bit psycho to travel far to meet strangers. I will keep working on him! Oh, yes I will!

Keetha said...

I'm jealous! I wish I could come.

Barking Mad! said...

I came back specifically to read the latest comments. I need to get my butt over to CBW's and say hello. I've been MIA when it comes to commenting.

But just promise me, because I've read something or other over at CBW's place, once upon a time, about snakes over there? Ya'll ARE going to have snake bite kits on hand...aren't you?

Well, aren't you????

Shelley said...

Memorial Mug? Yes, please.

Comfy Shoes? What the hell are THOSE?

I couldn't help but notice that there is no machete on the list - how are we going to deal with the snakes? I don't have a gun permit.

Sandy @ The Scoop on Balance said...

I'm laughing out loud about the strike through feature!!


Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Are barefeet the same as comfy shoes?? Guess not.

Country Girl said...

I'd like a tumbler, please *raising hand*. Hope it's not too late.

I don't know how much we're going to be able to get in Mental P's car on the way down, but if I can bring anything, let me know. I just bought some awesome mosquito sticks.

I know. I'm so exciting, aren't I?!!
