Live from New York...Buttercup Meets the Lorax and a Lorax Giveaway

One of the things I've learned in life is that some of the best things are the most unexpected, and the second day of BlogHer reinforced that. There were some great moments, but they weren't the ones I anticipated. I definitely enjoyed meeting this cute and fuzzy guy. I didn't know he would be at BlogHer, but what fun to walk into a main area of the hotel and see him, and even more fun to take my picture with him. I was given a bright orange Lorax shopping bag and I'd like to share it with one of the citizens of Buttercupland. Please leave a comment on this post and I will pick a name by 11:59 P.M. on Sunday. I'll let you know who the lucky winner is on Monday, and I am happy to send this bright orange shopping bag anywhere in the world.

The lunch program was an interview with Martha Stewart. It was interesting, but not my top event.


I met my buddy, the Sun, last year in San Diego at BlogHer and it was great to see him again, and I had a lot of fun with the Smith Brothers and the folks at their booth.

 My favorite part of the day was completely the most unexpected. I especially liked doing the videotaped interview about rosacea. I will be doing a separate post with more details and a link to the interview later this month, but I want to include it in the high points of today. Though I was well prepared I was a little nervous about doing the interview. I'm not a journalist and this would be a first for me. But everyone involved was so nice and the interview went well. I got some great information, a gift for a giveaway and a boost of confidence about taking a risk and trying something new.

I didn't get to meet The Pioneer Woman at the Land O Lakes booth, but she will be there again tomorrow and I hope to meet her then. Until tomorrow, wishes for sweet dreams and happy surprises!

It's raining here, so that SUN looks GOOD to me. Glad you are having a good time. I'm sure the interview about rosacea was great. Look forward to seeing it. The Smith Brothers and Lorax were quite the characters. I LOVE orange. I have orange. Take care.
