Day 57 of Fab’s Journey – We Rocked Twitter & Today’s Million Dollar Question

[ 25 ] May 12, 2011 |

We did it: 5300 followers – I mean – friends!

We want to thank everyone for helping us out. We are so lucky to have each and every one of you. We <3 you all and thank you so much. (Million Dollar Question at the end of this post!)

I can’t believe that once again another day is gone; I must really love what I am doing that I don’t realize how fast the days are going. That is #fabulous, and all of you are partially to blame.

Speaking of all of you, we really appreciate your support, guidance and ideas to helping us shape our new blog. We will implement many of the ideas to make it the best blog ever. Everyone here is super excited about it. Look for it coming very soon.

So let’s talk about today – it was super fantabulous. Although I started late, I finished the mid part of my day strong.

When I first started my journey on Feb 24th, @msmorev was one of the very first people I ever spoke with and is very special to all of us here. Not only is she super smart, friendly, caring, has awesome slumber parties (heard the rave reviews), but she is a friend of FS! I have learned so much from her. The most important lesson: never bet on Top Chef with her. You will lose every time.

It took a bit (thanks, FedEx), but her winnings finally arrived today. Next time I want first choice!

Another original friend @dinaj talked with us about her love of summers in Canada as a kid and eating Coffee Crisp with her parents. So we sent her a lil’ care package from Canada:

Ahhh, to reminisce…

Speaking of: everyone that knows me knows how much I love playing Name That Tune. I love music soooo much…any type of music. One of the fellas here loves Little River Bands’ Reminiscing. During a meeting today he started to sing it.

I ran to my desk to start the game, and was it ever special. We had tons of singers singing along. We rocked Twitter. OMG – it was like Twitterstock today!

Before I even started the contest, our friend @letsgolakers086 blurted out the next line:

(Y’know in sports, false starts = immediate disqualifications. You’re lucky we aren’t that strict! :P)

We had maybe 40 or 50 tweeps singing with us. I had goosebumps, and our singing was soo off key, but that wasn’t the point. It is all about togetherness. You know, Kumbaya!

I’d like to congratulate today’s winners: @cnaes, @helyn4, @letsgolakers086 (awesome recovery), @sheilaw9, @anniemos and @cloud10277. You all did awesome, and your cards are on the way!

I had a blast. I am trying to find a way to play this every day with all of you. I will keep you posted.

After the game, I had a big meeting discussing our plans for the blog relaunch and didn’t really spend so much time on twitter. But I dropped in briefly to talk TV with @wins4me, @leahsgrandpa, @cloud10277 and our good friend @lunachique.

Hey @wins4me, watchoo talking about me for?

As I am wrapping it up for the afternoon, I get the following tweets from our friend @dinaj who BTW is a dietitian…

Now that was funny! And now onto the Million Dollar Question!

We need help deciding whether to give away custom #fabulous baseball hats (pink with crystals too :)) or T-shirts. Which do you prefer? Please leave a comment so I can get them made for all of you.

It is now 6:24 pm on Thursday night, and I have 972,269 tweets to go!

P.S. Just a lil FYI: I will be out of the office tomorrow so look for my journey to return on Monday.

    the hats sound adorable anything shiny and pink is wonderful. but u guys told me on twitter I’d so get a tee. Overall I choose hats though. It’s summer and it’s a good way to look cute, support fabulous Savings and block the sun.
