Need a MOMcation?

ou just read that word, MOMcation, and said, "Ahhhh, yes!" didn't you?
Moms (and moms-to-be!) in Central Arkansas have a unique opportunity for a weekend getaway this spring. My friend Fawn is organizing another MOMcation this year, taking place April 29-May 1 at Heifer Ranch. (And we've already established how much I love Heifer International, right?)

I am so excited for a lazy exhilarating weekend of kid-lessness intellectual stimulation among new friends. I admit, this is a step outside of my comfort level. I won't know most of the other moms there, and I'm not the best with small talk. But there are so many cool things going on during the MOMcation, that I could hardly stand not to go.

A small-but-lovely list of some MOMcation Activities:
Book Discussion: We'll discuss Amy Wilson's book, When Did I Get Like This? I follow Amy on the twitters and I can't wait to read this book.
Cooking Workshop: Because, bless my own heart, Lord knows I need one.
Ask the Pediatrician: A sit-down, don't-be-afraid-to-ask time with Dr. Carrie Brown, who is a UAMS faculty member at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and writes for Parents.com.
Lots of Other Cool Stuff: a magazine and clothing swap, a book exchange, a coupon trade, hayrides (right?!), hikes, campfires and best of all.... girl time.

Plus! Plus! Somebody will win a Keratin Smoothing hair treatment!! I am dying for this right now, but don't have the $350 it costs just lying around waiting to be spent.


I am really excited about the MOMcation, can you tell? I think it would be a great weekend for you and your BFF, or you alone, or you and your three favorites cousins, or.... well... you get it.


Registration for the MOMcation is $180, and closes April 3rd. That covers all of the weekend's meals, lodging at the Heifer Ranch and activities. (A good deal, huh?)

There is a Saturday-only option available, too, for $80. If you can't swing the dollars or the time for the entire weekend, you should join us for Saturday's activities. A mini-MOMcation! You can register for the Saturday option online at http://www.momcation.org/ starting March 21st.


So. You should go. It'll be fun. C'mon.
Oh! Plus! Fawn and the team sent out an email this week that said
"We've got a few more surprises up our sleeves. A little hint -some of our surprises involve pampering! (Not the diaper kind.)"
So! You should go! It'll be fun!
