Scrapaway Cabin

One of the many "Great" Rooms

Cute cottage-kitchen

Scrapaway gals

You get the idea! The last weekend of Sept. I was invited to go up to a little Scrapaway retreat. It was a few days to get away from everything at a "Better Homes and Garden-like" cabin in Heber. It's beautiful there, I wish I could get away there more often.
Most people who know me, know that I am not a big scrapbooker...but this was a perfect opportunity to get something done. I am so behind! And in the process I met a lot of really great people. I had heard how intense these weekends were and that they meant business...little did I know. Those girls would get up and scrap, eat breakfast, scrap, eat lunch and so on. ( A few of us needed to get out and run or take a walk). The body doesn't handle a sedentary lifestyle very well when you're eating like we were! The food we had there was one of the best things...I can still remember the stuffed french toast rolled in cornflakes and coconut, mmmm!
Anyway, it was definitely a good experience for me...and though it may sound cliche', I learned a lot about myself that weekend and had the privelege of learning a lot about all the other great people there. Thanks to my friend Kristen who invited me and put up with my scrapbook sarcasm!

I am jealous, but let me tell you that I am not a scrapbooker. I wish I was, but I have no creativity. Good for you to take some time to get away. Looks like a fun & "scrappy" place to be.

That sounds like fun. Although I am really not into scrapbooking, it is nice to get away once in awhile. =)

What a fun trip. I am glad you got to your scrapbooking! I wish we could all pay Kristen to do our scrapbooks and be done with it!

I'm thinking that next time we go, we need to book a "cleansing" retreat to help get rid of the 6 to 8 pounds I put on when we go. The sad thing is the food isn't totally fattening, it's just that we don't ever let ourselves get hungry!! Thank you so much for going and I am so glad that you enjoyed it.
P.S. Your sarcasm is necessary to be one of my friends. So totally acceptable.
