Wilton Mom ReTreat June 2011
I am so stoked to be in the beautiful city of Chicago again for my 3rd Wilton Mom ReTreat! I love Wilton products, but I also really love the team. When I see the other Wilton Mom Ambassadors and Wilton Team it’s like a family reunion. We have great conversations about our personal lives as well as the way we incorporate Wilton products into our every day lives. I was really excited to make it to this event because I was not able to attend the last event. I feel like I take away a lot of knowledge about baking, cake decorating, cookie decorating, and candy making when I attend these events.
Tomorrow, we will have a chance to check out the infamous Wilton Tent Sale! We are a little more than excited to check it out. The Wilton Tent Sale happens once a year and dedicated bakers come from all over the country to purchase amazing products at amazing prices!
For this ReTreat, I left very early. I was up at 3:30 in the morning and had a friend drive me to the airport at 5:00 in the morning. My flight left San Luis Obispo at 6:20 a.m. via U.S. Airways. We departed from Phoenix, Arizona and headed to Chicago, Illinois. This was the first time that I experienced in-flight wi-fi and it was awesome!!! I have to say that I am very impressed with U.S. Airways and will definitely be using them in the future.
At the airport, I met up with Emilie from Baby Loving Mama. We ate lunch and awaited the arrival of Jennifer from Momma D and Da Boyz. We were then picked up by Mario, our favorite limo driver, and headed to the hotel. I was excited to see Tanya from Mommy Goggles and Jenn from Mom Spotted. I entered my hotel room and found a box of cookies with The Mommy-Files logo on them. They looked awesome and tasted super good as well!
After about an hour of resting, we headed to the home of the Marketing Director and had a super yummy dinner! Included in dinner was yummy pasta, hot dogs (to make Chicago style), salad, and the most delicious Chocolate Cake I’ve had in a really long time. It was a fun night of food, socializing, and fun. I look forward to what the next few days hold in store for us.
