April is our 4th Anniversary… Every year at Moab we celebrate our anniversary. It is a great week of friends and family, and even more special when I get to autograph the banner in our good friend’s garage, Danny Grimes. The story goes…I stay in my trailer in his yard every year. Four years ago I rolled into town late at night after receiving my first shipment of girl shirts to bring and test the concept at Easter Jeep Safari. I had some pink banners made to announce the brand, and in pure class, Danny invited me to hang one on his garage wall alongside leaders in the offroad industry. Every time I step foot into the garage it makes me smile seeing that banner, and every year I take a moment to sign the banner. It’s one of those moments that makes it all worth while.
This year we are upping the ante on celebrations! I checked my calendar and saw an open weekend so decided to fill it…with YOU! I hope you have been considering joining us for the Weekend Getaway at my house. Yes, at my house. The cliff notes are below or head to the website to read a better version. Guaranteed to laugh and have a good time. What more do you need? Thank you for your support, I couldn’t do this without you! ~ Charlene
PS – Your Next Shirt will be shipping in May! Maybe we’ll design it during the girls weekend…
_______________ ABOUT THE SHIRT _________________
About the Shirt:
Breaker Breaker Trucker Girl – I’m going to admit something few know… I’ve always wanted to be a trucker girl and drive a big rig across country. I know it may sound silly to some, but life on the road and the adventure…but then there are the delivery deadlines and the truckstop showers and… So, I did what any girl with a roving spirit would do: hooked up the truck and trailer and went from off-road event to event, which was the beginning of Bower Media and the beginning of I’m Not Just a Girl. Not going to lie, I’m Not Just a Girl was the gas money that kept Bower Media alive. And for that, I am always thankful.
I know there isn’t much out there for the trucker girl, and I have been thinking of this idea for a while. I was really excited when it all came together. The CB cord around the long-nose, tall-stack ‘ol truck really popped for me, and I hope for you too. Did you know that there are nearly 200,000 women across the US that make truck driving their career? Which is a 50% increase since 2005.
“What’s being said over the CB radio is the biggest complaint that women truckers talk about in the industry. There are those who know how to defend themselves or laugh off the jokes and comments announced by the hecklers on the road. It’s important for women truckers to keep their sense of humor and not take insults to heart. Women truckers need to toughen up and learn how to take a little criticism in order to survive in the industry; sure-fired toughness and the will to persevere will pay off in the end.” http://www.thetruckersreport.com/women-in-the-trucking-industry Sounds like an “I’m Not Just a Girl” girl to a T for me! This shirt is available in a black short sleeve v-neck or tank top in sizes XS – 4XL.

About the Gift:
I travel a lot. I started thinking about all the cool gifts that I could put together for you. The items that I don’t leave home without: a battery pack, snacks, flashlight, bathroom bag, etc. But none of it struck me as cool enough. Then I went to pack my backpack for the weekend and I ran to the computer to order us up a set of I’m Not Just a Girl backpacks!! Look forward to hearing about all the adventures that your backpack gets to go on.

Weekend Getaway at Charlene’s House: April 17-19
Here are the cliff notes: Come to my house and join other girls that know how to have just as much fun as you do! As dinnertime approaches on Friday we will be serving an easy dinner and dessert, something that if you come in later, you can heat up and still enjoy. We will hang out by the fire in the backyard laughing until you are ready to shuttle back to the hotel. Saturday morning will start off with breakfast. Come hungry – we’ll keep your belly full for the weekend! We ask that you pack a gift valued around $20 that explains ‘who you are’. The first activity of the day is introducing yourself to the group and showing off what you brought to share – no need to wrap it. Followed by an hour or so Social Media Class that will have something for every skill level. Lunch, of course, is next. Followed by an afternoon of activities. There will be lots of fun areas set up like a crafting table area, a fluffy room with chick-flicks running on the big screen, hair & makeup, nails & massage, cooking anything out of the cupboards, green screen I’m Not Just a Girl photo shoot, welding in the garage, or just hanging out by the pool in the 75+ degree Arizona spring. Knowing me, I am sure we will come up with more ideas too! Of course, then it’s time for dinner and dessert! After dinner, we will take a minute to get ready to go out and laugh…. I’m not going to ruin the surprise on where we are going…but I guarantee a hysterical time! Sunday morning we will have a nice breakfast, or should we call it brunch? We will do a final fun group activity and those that need to peel off to go home are welcome to. Those that don’t need to, or fly out later in the day, are welcome to stay at the house for a casual day, or we can head to the mall for some girl shopping time. We’ll play that part out at the time. The cost listed of $299 for the event includes a shared hotel room, all your meals, entertainment and fun. All you need to do is get to Phoenix International Airport or drive into town and you are our welcomed guest from there. I’m trying to keep it affordable and simple for everyone to join. At the same time, I want to make it memorable and relaxing for everyone. Ready to reserve your spot? I am going to limit it to a set number this year – my office & house isn’t huge – but comfortable – can hardly wait to have you here! More Info: www.ImNotJustaGirl.com/weekendgetaway
