Wordful Wednesday-Bloggy Boot Camp Phoenix

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.

I made a big announcement yesterday. I revealed the fact that I went on a big girl field trip this past weekend.

In layman’s terms, this means that I went away for the weekend, without my husband or kids. I’ve never done that before (except for once, and that time doesn’t count).

I came home with a dearth of photos. Of the 5 that I took, only one turned out. The others look something like this:

Instead of being annoyed that my pictures are terrible, I’ll just display it proudly, or better yet, have a contest. It’ll be a who’s who kind of contest, with a twist.

The contest is: Guess who is in the picture with me?

I’ll even give you a couple of hints:

1. If you do not know this one, then you don’t know me.

2. She is pregnant with #3 and blogs at a site with 2 M’s in the title.

3. She’s really NOT losing it.

4. Her blog title sounds a bit like a cartoon.

5. She has a few blogs, but one rhymes with gyp funkie.

If you’d like to send me an email (sevenclowncircus@yahoo.com) with your guesses, I’ll reward the winner(will pool the emails with the correct answers and draw one winner) with a $20 gift card to somewhere.

We are in the last few days of the $100 Barnes & Noble Giftcard Giveaway.

  62. Angie,

    My old (OLD – almost eight years) camera started behaving crazy like that and I thought I needed a new camera, so my husband bought me one. I handed it off to my daughter and a few weeks later it started behaving properly and her pictures looked great. It turned out that I guess it needed a rest?

    My suggestion is it is time to ask for a new camera. Although it probably won’t be necessary, be sure to have the “pouty face.”

  73. isnt that so funny that virtual relationships can turn out to be real ones. So glad you had fun! Creative way to use a blurry photo…clever!

  74. I guess it wouldn’t be very fair for me to enter, since I was probably the one TAKING the picture! If I did, sorry for the blur, I was juggling about 3 different cameras. But I’m glad you had a good time anyway.

  75. So envious of your big girl trip to become a better blogger. Someday, when the triplets are a little older I hope to have a chance to help my blog “grow up” by learning at a conference or boot camp!

    It looks like you had a great time. I’m still trying to figure out who one of those lovely ladies could be. Of course I knew lady number one right off the bat! lol Have a great day Angie.
