The best things in life!

Bloggie friends!

The best thing about attending a conference for work?

The freebies!

Here you will find a Mr Piggy, a crazy pen with fabulous hair - a cube –thingy, a round pen holder that glows - no idea why – a calculator – erm.. a couple of fold up bag thingies… lots and lots of really useful stuff!!

Just don't ask me what the conference was all about! LOL!

Charlie says: I am not impressed with my small shadow.

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone! See you all soon!

Swag bags are the best part of most conferences! I'm glad you're enjoying the booty!

klahanie said...

Wow wee and gosh! :) Nice freebies eh.
Apologies for not being around much lately. As you know, I've been busy in Canada signing autographs for my adoring fans.

We like the idea of the glowing pen holder - as we make notes in the dark quite often.

Charlie's photo and caption kill me! lol.

I like the pen with the great hair!! OMC that is too funny!

That must have been one heck of a conference but I won't dare ask you what it was about! MOL!

I'm so very curious about a conference that gives attendees Mr Piggys! I only ever get handouts:)

Madeleine said...

Freebies at a conference! Wowee.
Tell Charlie that once it rains his shadow will grow ;O)

Lisa Potts said...

Love the Miss Piggy! Hope you and Charlie have a wonderful weekend! You know this already, but you've been tagged over at my blog.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Hey, that was a bonus to attending! I don't think my co-worker will be coming back from her conference this week with any goodies. LOL.

Have a great weekend!

The Monkeys said...

Looks like you picked up a lot of swag! Charlie, just wait an hour and your shadow will be as big, handsome and strapping like you are!

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol. I love free stuff- useful or not! I always keep the bags of pretzels or peanuts off air flights. lol

Hannah and Lucy said...

Well at least you got something out of the day with your presents Jenn!
Charlie we love your shadow - it looks the same size as you but then you're sitting nearer to it than us - haha!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The Tame Lion said...

Wow! Fantastic!

A simple algebra here:
Work + Conference = Salary + Freebies

Speaking of shadow... yeah, sometimes I run too fast till my own shadow refuses to follow me.

Rene said...

Oh, those things all look great for stress relief (and maybe a cat toy or two)!

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Yup, concats on all the useful stuff!!!!

MOL....you are a hoot, handsome Charlie!!!!!!!

xxxxxx

notesfromnadir said...

That's a lotta swag! I like that huge calculator.

Another sunny day for Charlie--awesome! :)

Photo Cache said...

What a lovely coloring Charlie.

Emma and Buster.

Shirley Wells said...

My husband used to attend lots of work conferences and I always reminded him to come back loaded with freebies. We had the same sort of, um, useful stuff. :)

Gorgeous picture of Charlie.

Have a great weekend!

Marg said...

That is hysterical. I especially like the pen with the hair. Must have been quite a conference. Hi there Charlie, maybe if you move over a little, your shadow will get bigger. Hope all of you have a super fun week end.

Cheri said...

Aren't freebies great! Is that your dark twin Charlie?

Hansel said...

hmmm that shadow is inferior to your greatness.

Lydia K said...

Those look suspiciously like freebies from a medical conference. The drug companies always give away stuff like that!

Summer Ross said...

The pen is awesome!

ABBY said...

Freebies are great!

Hellllllllllllloooo Handsome Charlie!

When I retired, I had a drawer full of stuff I got at conferences. For the life of me, I could not think of a single thing I learned. On the up side, I haven't bought a pen in years. :)

Stephen Tremp said...

A cube thingy? Awesome. Too bad that didn't glow in the dark. Now that would be really cool!

Does Charlie wonder why his shadow keeps following him?

Lola Sharp said...

My MIL has to go to a 3-day conference for work every year...and she comes home with BAGS of similar type stuff (plus ice scrapers and little tape measures and random weird things), which she gives to our daughter.
Our daughter, especially when younger, loved those swag bags.

I'm betting gorgeous Charlie loves that pen with the crazy hair. :)

I've been a bad bloggy friend lately, for this I apologize. But thank you so much for being a bright light of joy in the bloggy-verse. When I see you r comments at my blog, or on anyone else's blog, they make me so happy. You are always so positive and I adore you. *hugs*

Happy weekend!
Love,
Lola

Brian said...

Conference bags are the best any old time!!!

Jacqueline said...

Glad you got some free stuff if you had to endure the conference :)...We are always impressed with you, handsome Charlie!...Happy weekend, sweet friends...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

Patsy said...

A cube, eh? Is that like a shpere but with corners? Maybe you'd better keep it in the garage.

fairyhedgehog said...

So many really useful items. Hmm.

Charlie looks lovely as always.

Eliza said...

Why can't I ask? :-) the cogs are turning, nope no idea.

Ann Best said...

What fun things to get at a conference! Who does care about the old conference!!

I'm so glad you signed in to my WordPress blog. You're one friend I'm never going to stop visiting.

And I'm SO glad you enjoying my book. I think you're right. It's speed, speed, speed today, with everything.

When you do finish, I would luv, luv, luv it if you would post a review on Amazon.

Jen says hi and hugs to you and Charlie!

Jemi Fraser said...

All kinds of goodies! Love it - especially the piggy - he's adorable! :)

RaShelle said...

I love the pen with all the green hair!!! LOL Fun!!!

Charlie, even your shadown is fabulous!!!

Have a fantastic Sunday!!!

Claudia Del Balso said...

Freebies are always welcome! Wouldn't it be nice if we could get free shoes? or at least a gift card to our favorite store. ;)
Charlie, darling, you look fabulous! and your shadow, too.

Pk Hrezo said...

lol! Free baggie thingies!! Hooray! So funny .... Hope you're having a fab weekend too!! Peace and love!

Tracy said...

I think Charlie wants to know who it is that is following him :) and wants it to stop bothering him!

For the conferences; I agree!!! the freebies are the best and anything that hands them out. I grab it all and put it in my prize boxes for the kids at school; they love the stuff and I haven't spent any money!

Deborah said...

HAHA, I love the giveaways too!
Have a great Sunday!
xxoo

Talli Roland said...

Um... interesting. I'm pondering what the heck that conference was! Oh, the things going through my head...

Hope you're having a good weekend! Hi to Charlie!

Theresa Milstein said...

How have I missed so many posts?! I guess it was the company in town along with last days of school rushing around. *Hangs head in shame*

I love the pen. And the cute pig! And what a pretty notepad.

Swag bags are awesome. Though at BlogHer last year, I received a Jimmy Dean clock. In case you don't know what that the co is - breakfast sausages. Who on earth wants a Jimmy Dean clock? They think I'll wake up, and think, "I could go for some Jimmy Dean sausages right about now."
