In the BlogHer Tradition of...

...Meeting the California Raisin, the Smith Brothers of cough drop fame and Mr. Brawny, I give you -- drumroll, please --

Buttercup meets Mr. Acquaman, he who vanquishes tooth decay. It wouldn't be BlogHer without a photo of one of my idols. 
 
The last two days held many fun moments, thoughtful moments and the opportunity to meet and speak with some terrific bloggers. It's somewhat hit and miss when the ballroom holds 2,000 people and I pick a seat, but luck was with me this morning and I sat with several people at breakfast that I had the chance to get to speak with during the day as well and became better acquainted with.   
 
I'm planning to call it a night soon and I'll make this a quick post. Bloggers need their beauty sleep for a big day tomorrow. But I will leave you with a rare photo -- Buttercup vacuuming. It's just about my least favorite domestic chore -- ironing is at the bottom of the list -- but I took a whirl at the Dyson booth. For five minutes I thought it was kind of fun, though I think it would take more than even a Dyson to make it a favorite activity. 
 
 The Happy Homemaker

As always thanks for visiting and have a sweet Saturday!

You look pretty handy with that Dyson. Vacuuming is my least favorite thing to do too. Acquaman is quite a handsome fella. You and him make a charming pair. Great pic. Glad you are having fun.

Even in vacuuming, you found some fun.

I am thrilled to have 'live-in' grandkids that like to vacuum! Can't wait to hear more about your adventures!

Carol, I am right with you on ironing being at the bottom! But I don't mind vacuuming, at all. :)

Hi Buttercup, What fun you have. It seems you get to meet up with interesting things and people. I guess washing dishes is my favorite chore....it would be laundry if it were not in the basement. Blessings to you. Hope your Sunday is wonderful. xoxo,Susie

How much fun you must be having being able to attend those BlogHer sessions! I wish I could be there, too! It sounds like your list is a duplicate of mine!:-) We do have a central vac in this house, which actually does make the vacuuming chore a bit easier. It still is one of those things to quickly get pushed aside if something more interesting arises.:-)

Hi Buttercup - I would love to go to a Blogging Conference but maybe I need to organise one out my way for that to be possible :) Lucky you, even with a Dyson on hand and hugging a Mr Acquaman! I can imagine the laughs! I am now in Vanuatu, which is cool as I can see it in your Live Feed, am I the first visit from Vanuatu?!!!
All is lovely here, apart from Internet connection, it's a tough life on these tropical paradise islands!!!
