YOU GUYS, I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since our last Momday! We threw Momday at Noah’s Event Center in Lindon with Ju-Ju-Be! It’s crazy to me. It’s honestly incredible to see something pull together that you work so hard on. Now, that doesn’t mean it was perfect because well there’s always hiccups, but still. We had another round of the most amazing speakers, fabulous sponsors, fun booths at the pamper night, good food and I left feeling uplifted and ready to tackle this thing called life. I think sometimes we get so wrapped up and used to doing the same thing everyday, sometimes stuck in a funk of downward spirals that it’s nice to have a day to recoup, here how other people tackle their days and be uplifted and reminded that we can and are doing hard things, that we are a lot stronger than we think! Now, I have to just give my plug and a huge thank you to all of our sponsors because you guys don’t even realize how much they do behind the scenes. One of the biggest things that was so important to Dani and I when starting this event was, keeping ticket prices down. We want every, single, Mom to be able to afford to come. Well, that wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors. They are the reason we can eat all the yummy food, have a fun venue, listen to amazing speakers, get pampered at the end of it and leave with tons of swag. So we owe them alllll a huge thank you, but especially me, thank you for supporting our little dream of Momday Conf! Ju-Ju-Be (SUPER cute diaper bags, travel bags, make up bags, literally all the bags) was our host sponsor and killed it. They spoiled each Mama with the most incredible swag and giveaway items and really helped bring our message and vision to light. Rubyclaire Boutique (the CUTEST clothes, seriously just go look. I actually did a collection with them awhile back!) sponsored our speaker portion and actually returned for a second time (they sponsored our first one too) so to have that happen and see someone really believe in Momday was incredible. The girls of Rubyclaire are seriously the sweetest human beings, Moms and just get it, they gave each Mama a beautiful bracelet at the table and made the speaking portion just perfect. modFamily (innovative products that make well, Mommin’ a little easier) was our swag bag sponsor and they gave SUPER fun swag, including paint sticks (which by the way, Blake LOVES). They helped make the swag bags super cute, reusable and well of course filled with SO much swag. Then, Jack & Winn (ALL the cute hats) sponsored our check-in table and made it look SO good. Seriously it was perfect! Plus they hosted such a fun giveaway for goodies as each Mama checked in, which was a huge hit! Seriously, thank you — ALLLL of you, you have no idea how much it means to us.
We were so lucky to hear from Michelle Money, two of the Rubyclaire Sisters, Sadie Sabin, Jenica Parcell, Ju-Ju-Be and Jen Jurca. They all killed it in their own way and honestly left a lot of us in tears and feeling a heck of a lot better than we did when we first walked in. There’s just something about someone else sharing their story and reminding you that you can do hard things, reminding you that you’re an amazing Mom, an amazing person and that you can do absolutely anything you set your mind to. Rubyclaire seriously made this portion perfect and we owe it all to them! Oh and see that stage? Isn’t it GORGEOUS?! That’s thanks to Rodworks because they’re the best at that and well..honestly I need them to come decorate my house. Now go give all these ladies a follow because I promise they’ll all leave you feelin’ a little better everyday even just through their blogs/socials:

Obvioisly a big part of our conference is the speakers, but another big part is our “pamper night” at the end. We want each Mama to be uplifted, but then pampered and ya know — have a little Mom’s night out! Our booths this time were so fun and honestly, I was even impressed that somehow we pulled those off. 😉 HA! Each one had the CUTEST custom sign from Jutmade and were unique in their own way makin’ sure every Mama got a little fun and whole lot pampered! Here’s the booths we had:

A HUGEEE thank you (like the biggest) to our photographer, Kelsie Emm Photography and our videographer Marley Ablehouzen because without them, well one this entire recap wouldn’t be possible, but we wouldn’t have been able to capture such a beautiful and special day, so we owe them a huge thank you for donating their time and services!!
