Verizon Wireless Voices!


Hi friends!

I have been meaning to write up a post and tell you more about my trip to Chicago and why I was there, I finally have the time!

I was honored when Verizon picked me amongst other bloggers, to participate in their Verizon Wireless Voices Program! The program is focused on fitness/health and picked bloggers who are surrounded by technology and social media, ummm I am perfect for this!

So what exactly did I do in Chicago?

Well, Verizon was so awesome to sweep me off to Chicago, put me up in a sweet hotel ( hard rock ) treated us to a fab dinner, breakfast and lunch catered for the big meeting where we got all the details and our devices!

Dinner was hosted by Verizon and ComBlue ( their pr firm )

The dinner was Saturday night At Park City Grill, a fabulous place and location! They had a awesome menu for us, was just fabulous to be so pampered!

I met a bunch of awesome bloggers who are also part of the program, a couple I have know through blogs and got to finally meet in person which was cool!

Lots of us!

Three of the people at this table worked for Verizon and they are so sweet!

The next morning was the meeting and the day we would find out what devices we would be getting and working with the next 6 months! Exciting!

Breakfast was catered at the meeting and I instantly gravitated towards the nutella, haha!

So for the next 6 months, these two friends are going to be my best friends! I am really excited to use both of these devices, the droid so far is awesome! I have to say, i love my iphone, but the droids got some features I love that the iphone doesn’t offer me! Of course you will hear about the droid more and the fitbit since I am going to be blogging about them from time to time over the next 6 months!

As always, I will be honest and always give my true opinions!

So now you know why I was in Chicago and now you know about my two awesome little new friends

Happy Saturday!
