MOM'S RETREAT 2010!!!!

Oh my goodness! Can you feel my excitement through your screen????? I have been thinking about hosting a mom's retreat for a looooong time. I mentioned it on here a couple of weeks ago and so many of you said that you wanted to come. So I spent 2 weeks scouring the country in search of the perfect place where all us moms could converge for a couple of days of peace and quiet. Some places were fabulous but cost a fortune. Some places were cheap, but were complete dumps. But finally, I found the perfect place!

The 2010 Mom's Retreat will be at...

October 22-24, 2010

You are going to love this place:

It just screams peacefulness and serenity! Harbourwood sleeps up to 14 people.  There are 5 bedrooms with 6 beds, 4 inflatable mattresses and several couches. Even though that means that every person won't have their own private bedroom, if you're like me you'd sleep on asphalt just to get a night's sleep away from the kiddos. There are 4 bathrooms, a hot tub, hiking trails, a barn with farm animals, a gorgeous lake..

It is the perfect place to come and relax, recharge, and have fun with lots of other moms from all over the country.  Take time to reflect and hang out without the stress of everyday life and those little rugrats we all love so much!  I foresee many wonderful conversations on this deck in my future.  And hours reading books in the swing overlooking the lake.  And long soaks in the hot tub.  (Can we just leave tomorrow!?)
I don't know about you, but I HATE to cook when I'm on vacation.  And since I have designed this whole weekend to give you a break- I will not allow you to cook, either.  We've gotten a fabulous deal on catering, so all of our yummy meals will be brought right to us.  We are also having some local professionals come in to give spa treatments for your weary bones and muscles.  The only thing you have to do is show up and eat and sleep and get pampered.  Sounds like my  kind of weekend!

And the very best part is that I created this trip with your wallet in mind.  I know that so many of you stressed out moms are paying buckets of money for therapies for your kids.  You or your spouse have been laid off.  You feel guilty about spending money, blah, blah, blah.  I know that.  I want you to be able to go.  So I am giving you 4 whole months to start collecting your pennies and line out some childcare.

Here are the cost details:
Lodging for 2 nights = 74.90
Catered food for the entire weekend= $49
Total Cost= $123.90 (yep- you can totally swing this!)

Extras You Could Do:
Spa Treatments- pay per rub
Adult Beverages- pay by the slurp if you are so inclined to bring it in your suitcase

The only other costs associated with this trip are your transportation costs.  Cincinnatti is very centrally located so hopefully lots of you will be able to drive.  Once we know who is coming and where you live, we can arrange some carpooling if you'd like. Or better yet, convince your BFF to come with you and split the costs of gas!  If you are coming from far away, check priceline and Expedia for airline tickets.

If you are a bit nervous about getting together with a group of women you don't know at all, don't be! I'll put together a contact list of everyone before hand, so we can all email back and forth and get to know each other a little before we join together for our giant slumber party.

I already had to put down a deposit, so if you'd like to go, I need half of your trip costs ASAP to hold your spot.  ($62)  Spots are on a first come- first served basis.  The other half will be due 30 days before the trip.  Email me at meganterry01@aol.com and let me know if you want to come along.   If you have any questions (because I am sure that I am leaving out some really important info) leave a comment and I'll keep adding new info and answers there!

Hope that you can come!  I can't wait to meet so many of you in person!  And remember-YOU deserve a break!  See you in Cincy!!!!!
