Well, I just had THE best weekend...
And, as promised, here is a recap... well, of the first day anyways.
As most of you know, I spent my weekend at a blogger retreat. It. Was. AMAZING. We were treated like royalty. The retreat was held in Daybreak, Utah. This place couldn't be more perfect.
First, it was check in...
From the very beginning, everything was set to perfection.
There was the cutest little snack bar and swag bags for everyone filled with amazing goodies from all of the sponsors!
After check in, it was off to the classes.
First up, Megan and I headed to Style taught by the INCREDIBLE Becki of Whippy Cake. Pretty sure I was completely star struck. She's AH-MAZING and I am NOT exaggerating in any way. She taught us all about dressing for our body shape and coloring.
Then Megan and I headed to the Cupcake class taught by the inspiring Megan from Sweet Tooth Fairy. Not only did she teach us how to frost cupcakes the Sweet Tooth Fairy way, but she told us all about her experience on a little TV show called "Cupcake Wars" I'm sure you've heard of it. Which, btw- She WON!
They were delicious, of course!
Since it was a two day event, we all stayed in the Model Homes of Daybreak. Here is our home. It was picture perfect and the inside was even better. So after the classes we headed there to get ready for that night's dinner party.
After getting ready we walked over to the Stepford Wives Dinner Party. It was, of course, a little TOO perfect... ;)
Dessert was served by none other than the Sweet Tooth Fairy. YUUUUUM.
One of the most exciting parts of the evening was mingling and stealing a few photos with the blogging celebrities! Oh. My. I was giddy! They probably thought I was so silly.

Char- Crap I've Made; Jen- Tatertots and Jello; Shelley- House of Smiths; Lara- Less Cake More Frosting; Amy- The Idea Room; Kathy- Danish Mama
During dinner they announced the INCREDIBLE project they have coming up. Guys... they are making a DIY Blogger HOUSE! Yes. I cannot wait to see it! It's going to be amazing. All of those masterminds you saw a few photos back are contributing. I expect nothing less than perfection. So excited!
After that exciting announcement, we heard some inspiring words from Survivors own- Dawn. She's from Utah and was on Survivor when she was in her late 30's. Super woman. It was so fun hearing about her experience.
The lovely ladies I spent the evening with...
We were SO not afraid to ask the blogging celebrities for pictures. They were all INCREDIBLY sweet and happy to join us! (some of them may have even followed me on instagram and texted me... woah)
Becki from Whippy Cake is Incredible. Seriously, she's my hero. haha! Not only did she take a ton of photos- silly and non silly, with us, but she also joined us in our dance party and made up a dancing game that we played until the DJ had to go home.
(note: I'm never looking at the correct camera)
Here are the roomies
and our other roommate Cynthia (whom we loved!) with miss Alycia.
What an incredible day!
No worries, it's not over yet. I still have a few more posts JUST about this retreat to share with you!!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
