Back in January, I stopped by the GE Booth at a Blogging conference called Blissdom. I was drawn to this shiny and beautiful GE washer and dryer in all its glory.
Since mine look like this…
you can see why I was drawn to them.
I chatted with the representatives and learned that this laundry set was like a drying and washing nirvana. It had special settings for getting poop out of baby clothes, the stinkiness out of pet beds, automatic detergent loading options and more. We ended up chatting about kids, laundry, dogs and social media. (As strange as it sounds, it does all go together.)
As I left the booth, I made a vow to go home and start kicking the crap out of my current washer and dryer so I could say, “Oh honey, the washer is broken. I think we have to go buy a new one.”
<Sigh> Despite my frantic kicking over the past three months, I still have the old washer and dryer.
But one morning (cue angel music) I got an email from GE that ‘turned my frown upside down’. They remembered me and they wanted me to visit them in Kentucky. They wanted to continue the conversation about social media and laundry (again, not as weird as it may sound) with a small group of bloggers for a fun learning, sharing and cooking (geez louise, I hope I don’t burn the place down) experience at the GE Monogram Experience Center in Kentucky. Otherwise known as the “GE Momsperience!”
We are going to chat about the “Biggest Challenges in the Kitchen?” (mine would be actually having to cook) and “Entertaining Made Simple,” as well as other topics. There are other fun events planned too! I am really looking forward to going (even cancelled my attendance at another conference – sorry guys!), and sharing the experience with you. Not sure what to expect, but it should be fun all around.
But before I go, what is your biggest household challenge? I would love to be able to share your thoughts and comments with GE. They are listening. (Hmm, that is not supposed to be as creepy as it sounds.)
And to blow your minds, if you already follow me on Facebook or Twitter, just leave a comment, or start following me on Twitter and Facebook (and come back to post a comment with proof that you did) and one of you will be selected to attend the same event. Yup. GE will cover your airfare (or mileage reimbursement if you drive), hotel, and your meals/ground transportation in Louisville. How awesome is that. You must do one (or all three) no later than 11:59pm EDT on Saturday, April 30th and be able to attend the trip from Sunday, May 15 through Tuesday, May 17th. Let’s have some fun!
Congrats to Christy!! and much bloggy love to everyone who entered. Truly wish all of you could come with me. <sniff>
