Be Blogalicious!

Hello World! Represent

I’m just back from Blogalicious 2011 in our nation’s capital where we discovered new blogger buddies, gleaned tips, tools & tricks to step up our blogging; cozied up to brands, loved on Shrek, partied with Ronald McDonald, peeped previews for upcoming Hollywood flicks and MORE – at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center on the Potomac…

But I won’t be selfish…Take a look at my pics…Hopefully, you will feel like you were there…

 Me with a fabulous view of the Gaylord & the Potomac River…

Of course, I have to end this post with a mention of God…Charles Butler and Trinity lifted up God with their beautiful voices as an introduction for a preview of “Joyful Noise”  starring Queen Latifah & Dolly Parton! The movie will be in theaters January 13, 2012…Stayed tuned for more details…
