in BLEND,giveaway

hello! can you believe christmas is OVER? all that hustle and bustle.. all that gift wrapping.. all that christmas music.. all those cookies.. GONE until next year.

okay, you’re right, the cookies aren’t going anywhere. let’s face it.. they are here to stay.

i will be back later tonight with a christmas recap to follow my christmas eve recap, but right now i have a really special announcement. i have been talking about this on twitter and facebook, but haven’t made an officially official announcement here on the blog yet. and now, it’s time!

lindsay, katie, and i have been hard at work planning a special event.

we love our blog friends. we love eating. we love working out (most of the time.) while blogging conventions are okay.. they really are usually jam-packed with various speakers and seminars that leave little time for actual hang time with blog friends, which is the whole reason i attend those conventions in the first place! our solution?

a blogger retreat!

the 2012 BLEND retreat (named so by the lovely susan because blogger+friend=BLEND!) is set for may 4-6, 2012 in boulder, colorado. BLEND will have no speakers.. no seminars.. just fun and fellowship! there will be a welcome cocktail party, three sponsored meals, group fitness classes each morning, hiking, sight-seeing, swag bags, t-shirts, and a huge raffle.

BLEND has been made possible by several sponsors.. but our official sponsor making the whole retreat possible is chobani fit!


you all know i love chobani. lindsay and katie do, too. when planning the retreat, we knew we wanted our official sponsor to be chobani. we were absolutely thrilled when they agreed to the sponsorship AND decided to back the retreat with their wellness initiative, chobani fit. chobani makes a PERFECT post-workout meal because it is protein packed, has healthy carbs, and is REAL FOOD.

you can watch about the chobani fit initiative in this video:

pretty sweet!

we are REALLY excited for chobani fit to sponsor BLEND retreat and can’t wait to hang out with everyone! to find out more about BLEND, including the schedule, location, and other fabulous sponsors, head to the website.

tickets for BLEND will go on sale mid-january and will be $75. we are currently working out the logistics of how to arrange the lodging—the location is actually a whole slew of individual, cozy cabins! it’s going to be like blogger summer camp!! i am so flipping excited.. we should for sure make s’mores and sing songs and tell spooky stories.

right now our goal is to spread the word about BLEND and chobani fit.  you know what that means.. time for a giveaway!

chobani fit is generously giving away a package of THREE 32 ounce containers of yogurt! one vanilla, one plain 0%, and one plain 2%!
