Get Me Some Swag…Our Swag Party and Awesome Sponsors #Brandcation #GulfCoast

Surf Burger

After our Blogger Olympics, we ate dinner at Surf Burger. It was so funny because being the social media mavens that we are all of us could be seen with our phones tweeting, posting to Facebook and Four Square what we were doing! I had their Surf Chick, which came with their stick fries and a grilled chicken sandwich. It was very good. The service was friendly and very hospitable too.

Brandcation would not have been possible without all the awesome sponsors our hosts worked with in providing so many of our activities. So I hope you will join me in giving them some social media love.

Event Sponsors:

Adventures Unlimited:
Post coming up this afternoon, but we spent all day Saturday here on a beautiful piece of property! In the air and in the water…

Portofino Island Resort:
Which I already posted about here.

Dunkin Donuts: Sadly, I don’t think I ate a single Dunkin Donuts bagel, but I hear they were delish!

Jambu: They sponsored our Blog Olympics which I posted here.

Hotel Coupons: A great place to save money and start planning your next trip!

Circle PR: Thanks to these ladies we got to see dolphins in real time.

This was amazing and would have been the coolest homeschool field night! Dewey even had an accessory that allowed us to connect our iPhones to the telescope to take photos and videos of the moon!

Swag Sponsors:

After dinner at Surf Burger, we all gathered in one condo in our pjs for a Swag Party. Jambu Footwear had provided bags and our event hosts had filled them up with goodies from all the sponsors listed below. There were some oooos and ahhhhhs as well as a few squeeeeees as things were handed out! (Right, Jenn? ;-)) I haven’t even tried everything yet.
