I’m Going to the Pinners Conference!

Oh my gosh! I thought that only Utah had the Pinners Conference. I thought I was so lucky when I lived in Sandy to be literally a mile away from the South Towne Expo Center for some of the most popular conferences in Utah (especially for bloggers). But, I didn’t realize that the Pinners Conference was a multi-state thing! And, this year, I get to go!

@PinnersConf 2016 in Dallas on September 9&10.

It will be this weekend, September 9&10, at the Arlington Convention Center.

If you have never heard of the Pinners Conference, well, shame on you. This is how it is described: What is the Pinners Conference? It’s two great events in one. It’s a conference featuring 100 Pinterest-based classes taught by the best teachers in the nation. And it’s also an expo with 200 top businesses providing beautiful options in the worlds of DIY, crafts, cooking, self-improvement, photography, party planning, scrapbooking, holiday, beauty and fashion and all sorts of other great things. What’s Pinners? It’s where Pinterest comes to life. And it’s now your favorite weekend!

Follow along with the Conference, which happens in Dallas, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, and Atlanta this year, on social media with the username @pinnersconf.

And, make sure you follow me on Pinterest!

September Sleepover Soiree

Last week, I went to the first ever Sleepover Soiree! It was hosted by Amberly from Life With Amberly and Joe and Aubrey from Dreaming About Someday.

Because of Rhys, I wasn’t able to spend the night, but first thing, Saturday morning, Rhys and I packed up and headed to Oakely, where it was held. It was a gorgeous drive through the canyon, watching the sunrise. Rhys didn’t think so–he cried until he fell asleep (I had to sing to him and talk to him the whole way).

We made it just in time to have some delicious breakfast! Flippin Waffles made breakfast for us–gourmet, sweet waffles with delicious toppings. I had one with strawberries, whipped cream, and peanut butter. Delicious! She also gave us some “waffle holes”–kind of like donut holes, and just as tasty!

Rhys woke up and began to socialize with the other bloggers. They all loved him.

Our first discussion that morning was on Sponsorships. Amberly led the discussion and it was great! I got a lot of good advice to start my sponsorship program. BTW…the giveaway for October’s In-Post Banner Ad is still going, and there are plenty of sponsor spots open for October as well!

Rhys got bored listening to the conversation, so he fell asleep. However, he woke up for lunch, causing me to prepare my lunch and eat my lunch all one-handedly while holding him in the other arm. I definitely felt like a talented mom then! We had delicious taco soup in a bread bowl!

Then, we had our last conversation of the day–an open Q&A session. Sadly, Rhys got pretty dang hangry, so I had to excuse myself into one of the bedrooms, shut the door, and tried to nurse while still listening to the conversation. However, he was satiated in time for my question!

It was really fun to go and meet new bloggers and get advice on how to grow my blog. I can’t wait until next year! (And next year, I may actually be able to spend the night!)
