blend ticket giveaway!

by Janetha on February 17, 2012


hey guys.. it’s hard to believe, but blend retreat will be here in just over two short months.



i cannot wait to see so many of you and hang out in person! it’s gonna be a blast.

we (me and my co-hosts: lindsay and katie) wanted to find a way to have a giveaway for the retreat. since several people have already purchased their tickets, we want to be able to include them in the giveaway.. so here is what we have come up with!

on friday, february 24, we will draw FIVE names from the blend attendees. those five people will get to come to blend for free! meaning, we will reimburse their $75 ticket!

to enter into the giveaway, all you have to do is register for blend here before friday, the 24th! that’s it! if you were on the fence about the conference or you were waiting to register, now is a good time to do so.

and, if you have already registered, you do nothing. you’re already entered in the giveaway.

for those of you who aren’t sure what blend is all about, you can check out my detailed post here.

a few fun facts about blend retreat:

  • tickets are only $75, compared to the typical blogging conference price tag of $250+.. this is a flipping steal!
  • you do NOT have to have a blog to come! this is for bloggers and readers.
  • chobani is our official sponsor, so there is going to be yogurt coming out of your ears all weekend.
  • the price of admission gets you:
    • three meals, including a breakfast by xagave, a breakfast by chobani, and a fancy dinner complete with drinks and hors d’oeuvres
    • three fitness classes, including yoga and boot camp
    • free hiking with pre- and post-hike snacks provided by the simply bar
    • blend retreat t-shirt
    • amazing swag bag chock full of goodies from over 20 sponsors
    • entry into a huge closing ceremony raffle with big ticket items from our sponsors
  • on-site lodging is available in COZY CABINS complete with kitchens! it’s like summer camp! you can opt to stay at a hotel off-site, but i don’t see why you would not want to bunk up with your blends. on-site lodging starts at $50 per night.. such a deal.
  • this is the ONLY blogging event i get to attend this year.. and i want to see you! so come! yes, it is a fun fact and i am selfish and want to see you.


if you are hesitant about attending because you’re worried you won’t know anyone at blend retreat or don’t have someone who you can bunk with.. PLEASE don’t fret. if you are coming solo, we will be sure to match you up with roomies that you will love and chances are you’ll have pillow flights late into the night.

oh, and i am gonna try to smuggle randy and penny in my suitcase.

so.. what are you waiting for? sign up before next friday to be entered to win one of the free tickets!

also.. if you have any questions or concerns about the retreat, leave a comment below or shoot me an email.

I wish I could, but I’m running a race in Indianapolis that weekend! Hopefully I can make it next year :)!

I’m running the race in Indy that weekend as well, so I can’t come. I wish I could though! Colorado is beautiful and it would be so fun to meet so many people in person!

Hey, Janetha, I just discovered your blog a couple weeks ago. You seem so sweet and funny and your recipes look awesome too. I’m going to be making some of them this week, for sure. Just thought I’d let you know I’m loving your blog!

Alyssa @ Life of bLyss February 17, 2012 at 11:10 am

Pumped to finally meet you, lady!

Ashley B February 17, 2012 at 11:16 am

Only a 16 hour drive from my house. Hmm. It would be fun, but not alone!

Stephanie @cookinfanatic February 17, 2012 at 11:22 am

Whyyy are flights from VA so expensive??! I would LOVE to come to this if they weren’t though… stupid airlines :(

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga February 17, 2012 at 11:55 am

I’ve thought about going to this…and it’s good to know you are. Have a blast. Maybe if I win a ticket, I’ll go :)

janetha February 17, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Hahah umm a couple things. One, I am hosting this, not just going. And two, it’s a refund giveaway, meaning we are giving 5 winners their money back sooo it’s not a random winner selected or anything. It’s from the attendees… just wanted to clarify that since you said you would go if you won a ticket!

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga February 17, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Ok I was reading this from my iphone and clearly I didn’t read all the words on that tiny little screen…LOL

Thanks for the clarifications :)

WISH I could go but plane ticket plus hotel is just too much :( I’m lucky that other things are close enough for a bus ride or drive (like HLS!) Best of luck with this though, you guys will have a great time.

Calee February 17, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I’m sooo excited for this retreat! I hope that this giveaway gets more people who were on the fence about going OVER the fence and into the retreat. :) More peeps = more fun!

Calee February 17, 2012 at 2:07 pm

However … the less people that sign up between now and the giveaway, means the more likely I might win a ticket … ;)

Thanks again for putting this together. It’s going to be awesome!

Sarah @ The Healthy Diva February 17, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Argh….I soooo wish I could come, but I live too far :( Maybe next time I’m in the US I can meet some of you lovely bloggers that I love reading!

Pure2raw twins February 17, 2012 at 6:07 pm

we would love to go but it is right after my wedding, so we will have to try next year :( sorry!!!!

Maren February 17, 2012 at 8:30 pm

MAN I wish I could come! I’d seriously like to meet you in real life! haha I do feel like I know you already though… If we weren’t planning a wedding, I’d be there in a heartbeat! xo

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More February 17, 2012 at 9:09 pm

I just signed up a few days ago and I AM SO EXCITED!! :)

Marie February 22, 2012 at 8:23 pm

I SOOO wish I could go. Just can’t budget for the plane trip and haven’t been away from my twins for more than a few hours at a time. ;) I so want to meet you one day, though!
