Chit Chat, Travel |

Early last month I had the opportunity to travel to Park City, UT for the Better Blog Retreat hosted by Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod and Heidi of Foodie Crush. The pictures do not even do justice to the amazing time we had. We laughed, learned, ate, exercised, got pampered and ate some more. I feel so lucky to have spent the weekend with these amazingly talented women. I truly love my job. See bottom of post for a link to all of these gals.

Sandy made us the most delicious Baked Brie using Harry and David products. We were in hog heaven. Look at the foodie paparazzi, lo!



Our first evening in Park City, it started snowing! Dara and I walked arm in arm in the snow to dinner. I used my scarf as a hat, lol!

We woke up to a winter wonderland outside! Amanda caught the snow perfectly here.



One morning we had a Chobani yogurt bar and one morning we had Dine and Dish’s fabulous waffles. Mmm!

Most of the time we spent gathered around the living room talking and learning from each other.



Sweet Tooth Fairy spoiled us rotten with cookies, cupcakes and cake bites. Oh baby!



One afternoon we got pampered by Zante Spa with mini massages, manicures and foot massages.

Before our last dinner together we got some group pictures! Love these women!

Our dinner table was so beautiful. We had the most lovely dinner prepared by the Deer Valley Resort Chef. I’m still dreaming about it!
