As a busy mom of three and someone who’s always on a budget, I don’t get to travel nearly as often as I’d like. There are so many really cool conferences I’d love to attend but the cost of airfare alone, along with hotel, food and the conference fee is prohibitive. So when a fantastic conference and retreat invite was sent to me that takes place in my neck-of-the-woods (lovely San Diego county), I couldn’t resist signing up immediately!
Sponsored by HP, the HP Print & Pamper Retreat takes place at the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn. No airfare needed, it’s a quick half-hour drive from my own front door. Invitees will be pampered with special spa activities, have fun crafting time with expert DIY-ers, as well as network with other bloggers (many of whom I’ve connected with via social media but have never met in person!) I’m so looking forward to three days of “mommy” only time with my friends (and having the bed all to myself!)
We’ll also have a behind-the-scenes tour of the HP facilities, group sessions with HP and receive the latest HP printer. I love participating on the HP Panel and use my HP printer daily. I also enjoyed attending the MyPrintly event in Portland so I’m excited to learn more about what HP has to offer.
Oh, and on Saturday, we’ll just happen to be headed to my favorite place, Disneyland, for lots of magical fun during the Disneyland Diamond Celebration! I’ve yet to see the decor in person, nor the Paint the Night Parade or Disneyland Forever Fireworks show, but you can be sure I won’t miss them.
