A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet up with some friends at Ignite Retreat. It was a small retreat for a dozen bloggers held in Lehi, Utah. My good friends Katie of Clarks Condensed and Hilary of Pulling Curls dreamed it up and planned it all out. They did a fantastic job. We had so much fun and met a bunch of great sponsors. I always learn so much from these girls that I came home with a to-do list a mile long.
Before I tell you about it I want to give a shout out to Country Finacial, Hilton Home 2 Suites, Texas de Brazil, and Get Away Today for being our main sponsors. Without whom this event would not have been possible.
Then we went to Owlet for lunch. They were really great. I wish I had known about Owlet when I had my babies. It seems like a completely awesome product. If you want to know more Katie has some awesome personal experience with it.
After that, we checked into our rooms. We stayed at Home 2 Suites by Hilton. It was really nice. They have a full kitchenette in each room which included dishes and a dishwasher. The bed was really comfy and I am pretty picky about mattresses. The sheets were really soft too.
Then we met with Sandy, the founder of Finders Key Purse, and Carol Tuttle of Live Your Truth to talk about being entrepreneurs and growing our businesses.
We had dinner at Harvest Resturant at Thanksgiving Point. It was super delicious. I would definitely go there again. After dinner, we headed back to the hotel for a party hosted by Get Away Today. The had some fun and super simple party games which I will be sharing in an upcoming post. I was actually the lucky winner of the grand prize. A trip to Disneyland! How fun is that? Get Away Today is my favorite way to book a Disney vacation. Be sure to check them out and get started planning your next trip.
Saturday we had breakfast and met with some more sponsors including . Then we headed downtown. While the other ladies attended an LDS conference I went to Vintage Whites Market where I found a couple of new pretties for my house. We met up for some dinner at Texas de Brazil and then we picked up dessert at the Cheesecake Factory and headed back to the hotel.
My favorite part was definitely the evenings. We all crowded into Hilary’s room and talked, laughed and ate dessert. If you attend a conference or retreat, make sure that you attend an after party. It really is where you get the best tips, tricks, and advice. Plus you make new friends since you are actually talking to people face to face. It was a great weekend and I can’t wait until Ignite 2017!
