Everybody’s Working For The Weekend…

by farrah on March 23, 2013 · 4 comments

I don’t know what was in the air this week but everywhere I looked my FB and Twitter feed were filled with people ready for F-R-I-D-A-Y! Of course… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Since it’s Saturday morning and I am completely brain fried I just wanted to give you a heads up on what’s to come in the week ahead.

First, and most exciting- I am thrilled to say I am partnering yet again with Country Outfitter for a review and giveaway. I know you see their boot giveaways every time you turn on your computer– and with good reason. Their stuff is awesome and everyone wants to win something of theirs. Better start checking out their site now as I’m going to have another fantastic gift card to go away– soon.

Second, I don’t want to be all annoying or anything with it but I entered an expat blog writing contest last week. The prize is unimportant (gift cards to Amazon) but I am really excited to participate and read the other entries. Following up the wildly successful post 10 Things I Love & Hate About Being An Expat from last week– the contest was specifically 10 things that are great about being an expat in my area. So. I’ll be reposting the piece I wrote and sharing it here and there. One of the prizes is given to best reader comment- which I think is awesome! Anyhow. That’s coming at ya next week.

Lastly, we’re packing this weekend. I am testing out family hostels in Germany for Travel Mamas. Ever thought about doing a family hostel? What do you think about when you think of a hostel? I think of a) those god awful horror movies and b) college kids smoking pot in the lobby. Neither of which I would normally subject my children to– but we’re doing it anyhow. This should be interesting. (sidenote, she has some great contests going on over there like win a trip to India so go check it out!)

What are you working for? Have a great weekend!

Wait. Country Outfitters is a real thing? I had no idea. I always see their ads on Facebook, but I thought it was spam or something. I am intrigued. And yours is my favorite ex pat blog. What a cool way for you to use this experience to connect, educate and entertain. Keep us posted.

Love Country Outfitters giveaways. I’m forever entering and not winning. Hehe. I did love your Shabby Apple giveaway. Never heard of them before your post and they have adorable clothes!
Loved your expat interview. And as for the hostels. Those are my images too so I look forward to reading about it.
