Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged #awesome

I am completely thrilled. Today's the day I leave for my first blogging conference. What an opportunity this will be for all of us attending. I am nervous-excited about meeting everyone and getting started. All great things should make you equally excited and nervous. That's how you know you really want to do it.

I would like to thank Healthy Families Now for sponsoring me with a paid scholarship. It's the only way I would have been able to attend this conference. God does provide for His children when the time is right. And he definitely provided this opportunity for me.

I would also like to thank some of the other sponsors attending the conference this weekend. Country Outfitters (even though I was tardy to the party, I can't wait to see all the amazing boots everyone picked out...Maybe I will win a pair on one of their blog giveaways), Arkansas Farm Bureau, Ziploc, All You Magazine, Petit Jean Meats and everyone else who took the time to invest in Arkansas Women Bloggers and its conference. I am truly thankful and honored you would take the time to network with all of us here in Arkansas. We are so blessed.

On the agenda today:
  • Pack bags for conference.
  • Check on Asher at Arkansas Children's Hospital. She is currently in Round 5 of chemo this week, and she should get out Saturday if all goes well. If you would like to follow Asher's journey and get to know an incredible 3 year old, like The Brooklyn Project on Facebook. It's her official page that we keep updated. We welcome any new Prayer Warrior who wants to follow along.
  • Put gas in my car.
  • Other minor things (lunch, print off directions to conference center, etc.)
I can't wait to share everything I learned with you when I get back. Get ready. Monday is going to be one of many conference recaps.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Follow me on Twitter (@ashtenbrook) for live tweets from the conference. TTYL!! (The inner third grader in me loved that. See what I did there. Ha.)
