I’m hoping to spend Mother’s Day Weekend in Bentonville. #LuvSoFab14

Send The Maven to SoFabCon #LuvSoFab14

My dear husband,

This Mother’s Day weekend. I think I’d like to do something for me. Sorry honey – did I mention you’ll have the kids  to yourself? And since my birthday is right afterwards on May 13, can we just chalk this up to a birthday present? There’s good news for you, the only thing this will cost you is time and love. And maybe a diecast car or two and a plastic pony. Kid bribery.

You see, I’ve decided to apply to win a scholarship to SoFabCon 14, at the enabling suggestion of my dear friend Cristi.  See, Cristi applied too, and so we’re hoping we both win and support each other.

She’s right – I do deserve to go to SoFabCon all the way in Bentonville, AR. I deserve to take a weekend to learn and grow and hang out with some of my blogger besties.

Why do I want to go, you ask? In a nutshell, to spend time with some of the savviest bloggers in the business, to network with the fabulous company that has given me so many opportunities in the past years, and to be given the chance to really make 2014 MY YEAR. If this was 2000, I’d have made you a power point presentation to with slides to show you all the keypoints. But since I’m a Social Fabric blogger, I made you a Google Insights album. Makes total sense right? Be sure to check it out for all of the important details about why I want to head to Bentonville Arkansas for Mother’s Day instead of getting breakfast in bed.

I’m really hoping that I’ll be leaving on a jet plane in May to learn, implement and grow! And I really hope I can share the following picture like crazy on Monday!

The Maven is going to SoFabCon (I hope)
