Free Ice Cream

How could anyone say no to free ice cream?

My wife told me that there was a new blog event for the Connective Circle coming up that would be held at Sub Zero Ice Cream. I am so there! This time, I did remember to ask what else is going on at the event. Not too bad, I think I could handle it. So when Thursday comes around, we are rushing to get there in time as our babysitter was a little late. We decided to go to McDonald's drive thru so we could hurry up and get food. Hurry was not in the cards of the workers that day. After 10 minutes of waiting, we were on our way again. I may or may not sped a little to get there on time. We got in line to check-in and then waited our turn.

When we got to the check-in table, I thought I was so cool because I had my own blog. Yes - I was an official blogger. When I told them that I was there with my wife and that I had a blog I was told, "Oh you most be one of the 'plus ones'". Did I look like a plus one? OK, in this case, I probably did. I informed them that I was registered as well. I was cool. I even got a bag full of cool stuff all to myself. We found a seat with Summer from Thanksgiving Point (one of the sponsors for the event). I noticed that I was one of about 3 guys at this event. Not too bad!

The other two guys were from one the sponsors. As soon as they gave away the gift that they had, they escaped out the door. I still didn't think that this was too bad as I was getting free ice cream and it was yummy. Then, they started to give away more gifts and my number was called. Yes, I won! As I started to go up, I learned that the stares that I got were the stares of "how did he win?". I hurried and ran back into my corner. I won a Connective Circle t-shirt and a bag of chocolate-covered cinnamon bears from Utah Truffles. My wife called dibs as soon as she saw them.

I got to meet a lot of great people at this event, like Shannon from Lucky Red Hen
and Jonie from Just Between Friends.


I can't wait for the next time.
