Perfect Timing

Friday night I went to the Summer Social Retreat '09 at Soldiers Lodge in Midway and the timing could not have been more perfect, as was evident in my last post. It was hosted by the lovely April from Sweet Life in the Valley. It was her first event and she did an amazing job.

I didn't take many pictures because I was too busy, well, talking. I mean "networking". Anyway, I did happen to get a picture of the beautiful view from the lodge.
They provided a super yummy dinner that included shredded roast beef seasoned with Shirly J's seasoning. Too bad I don't live closer to Orem (that's where their store is) because it was fabulous! There was also some wild drinking to go along with the networking.
And there was cake. Did I mention the cake?! Oh my gosh, it was fabulous! It was provided by The Chocolate bakery. There was so many yummy desserts that I should dedicate the 5 pounds I probably gained on Friday to The Chocolate Lady!
April gave away some of her favorite things and totally gave Oprah a run for her money. Included were some lip potions from Yes To Carrots, some body butter from NuSkin, face potions from Skin RX, some essential oils from doTERRA and lots of other fun things. I personally won tickets to Charlotte's Web at the Noorda Children's Theater to take my family to. Yay! I'm so excited!
I had an amazing time and one of the best parts was getting to meet new people. It's amazing to me how much all of these women know! I learn something new every time I got to any kind of blog event and I'm so glad that I'm lucky enough to be invited. Thanks April!

It was fantastic to meet you!

I was a dummy and forgot to bring my camera.

I will have to invoke "imagery" in my description of the event.

It was great to see you at the event! I only had a cupcake and regret that now... because that cake looked so good. Granted the cupcakes were great too.
