I was so excited when I realized that Quinn’s Moms Who Make It conference was scheduled when I was going to be in Utah! I finally got to meet some of my fave Utah bloggers/tweeters and more! (You’d think I’d have met them while I LIVED there huh??)

Some great moments for me were:

  • Meeting up with Pam Baumeister the editor of Wasatch Woman. Pregnant and all.. how I wish I’d gotten a photo of her cute self!
  • MEETING the cookies made by the Dough Girl! (I mean meeting Tami the Dough Girl..)
  • Listening to Sugar Jones talking about ways we all can overcome the crap thrown at us.
  • Being amazed by Cari Greers story. Her face was almost literally ripped off during a horrible car accident, she was able to recover and keep her chin up..
  • Hearing Kelly King-Anderson talk about her life and the ways she keeps the spiritual IN it!
  • Did I mention cookies? (Oh my gosh the Ginger ones…!) Dough Girl promises me she will ship them to Oregon soon!
  • Riding in a car with the MomFaves team to get a coffee/soda…
  • Brainstorming ways to use social media for a local photographer: Marcel Walker.
  • Sittin’ in the BACK of the room with supermomcentral for the break out sessions!
