Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #4

As you are reading this, husband and I are in Las Vegas for Vision Expo West AND our tenth wedding anniversary. It’s great that they happened on the same weekend. We can take a mini-vacation and write it off as a business expense. Conferences are a great way to get fired up about what you are doing. Hopefully, I will be able to attend Fincon next year for that same reason. If you don’t hear from me for a few days, I must have hit it big and am counting my money.

Eyes on the dollar continues to grow, in spite of my inadequacies, because of all the selfless bloggers out there who continue to support me. This week I was featured on several sites. Love back to all you guys. I am doing the list a little early this week, so PLEASE let me know if I missed someone.

Andrea gave me the opportunity to go a guest post, In Search of Perfect  at So Over This. It drove up some controversy, so check it out and see what you think.

  1. Thanks for the mention. I was bummed I couldn’t make it to fincon this year but hopefully next year I can!

  2. Thanks for the link to my post! Looks like you’re making quite a name for yourself here too. Congrats!

  3. It’s nice that you are hitting two birds at a time — getting anniversary timeout and attending vision expo to write off your trip charges. Way to go, Kim! Thanks for the kind mention. I really appreciate it.

  4. We did not attend FinCon (or Vision Expo!) but we’re going to be going to a conference on Cell Therapy soon. I’m attending as media so it’s going to be a busy week for writing!

  5. That’s partly why I picked it – I think it sounds great! Hope you have an awesome time in Vegas. It’s a great town.

  6. Thanks for including me! I really appreciate it. And yes it was quite the feat being able to write my roundup even after stuffing my face :0 Oh and with the pet, we went to the humane society and fell in love with a 6yo lab/retriever mix. She was very shy but got used to us after a bit. Unfortunately….we don’t even close on our house for a month so we definitely can’t even consider getting her anytime soon.

    • That’s why I can’t go to the pound! I always want to bring one home. We actually got a dog from Burger King on the Navajo reservation. It is a known congregating place for stay dogs. They just seem to know they will get fed and someone might just take them home. My husband won’t even let me stop there anymore.
