Haven 2013 >>> We are Here!

Just popping in from Hotlanta!! Here’s my Instagram recap of our little family road trip to get here.

Our trip started off pretty normal…

We arrived a little after 2 am at the gorgeous Hyatt in Buckhead. It’s such a great venue for Haven 2013!! Needless to say, what was supposed to be an 11 hour trip turned into an almost 13 hour trip because we ran into some crazy weather and had to pull over and let it pass.

I don’t know about you, but I am not one for driving through torrential rain through mountains next to double trailer semi-trucks. We waited out the storm and watched as people tried to pump gas with water up to their mid calves…more coffee was needed. The kids slept in the back no problem which I am thankful for!

The Grand Hyatt Buckhead was a very welcomed sight for these weary travelers. Our boys had a second wind once we got inside and we explored the hotel at 2:30am. Totally normal, right? The staff was super nice and accommodating and let the kids pick out some toys for the pool. Once unpacked, we fell right to sleep the minute our heads hit our pillows.

In true Kristin fashion, I set my alarm for 8am (which is late for this girl), and hit the gym to get rid of the sleepies.

…and yes, I wear lip gloss when I run. I hate the lip crusties.

We ordered some late morning room service once the littles were awake.

The boys keep saying this is the BEST.DAY.EVER.

I agree. Room service and delicious food have that effect on me too! I think we are going to hit the pool as long as the rain stays away and walk down to Trader Joe’s and pick up some room snacks.

Then, I’m off to check-in for Haven (YAY!) and meet and mingle with some of my favorite bloggy friends and meet new ones! I saw the Haven Team having breakfast on my walk back from the gym and I am getting so excited!! I wanted to bang on the window and wave like a fool, but I passed. In just a few hours it all begins!

You can follow all the Haven fun on Instagram. I’ll have my phone at my side snapping away!

 

Are You Going to Haven?

OK, my bloggy DIY friends, I got my ticket to Haven 2013!

Hands=On at Haven Conference 2013

I am so excited! I remember when I first started this blog, I asked Kate (aka Centsational Girl) a question on her blog about what advice she would give to a DIY blogger just starting out. She was so sweet to respond and one of her nuggets of wisdom was to encourage me to attend this conference!

I can’t wait to meet so many of my blog buddies there and make new friendships.

So, who’s coming with me?
