You can imagine my shock and surprise when I received an email a few weeks ago from one of the PR firms I have worked with in the past, inviting me to Seattle to meet with the founder of Cinnabon, cook with her at her home, and learn about a new product Cinnabon sending to market soon. Although I've been blogging for almost two years, my main blog is a very niche blog where I write about my passion for and advocacy of breastfeeding (it's called Blacktating, and if you're interested in this topic, please join the discussion over there as well!) However, I am a foodie at heart and I love to eat, cook and especially bake! The thought of actually baking with the founder of Cinnabon in her home makes me giddy.
Anyway, I'll be going on this all-expenses paid excursion February 9-11. I'm going to get to meet some cool food bloggers and some other "mommy" bloggers and enjoy lots of good sweets. It's not exactly going to be the best thing for my diet, but I'll make the sacrifice cause that's how I roll. I know I'll be coming home with lots of goodies, and my guess is that I'll have some fun stuff to give away on the blog, too, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, if you've got a Cinnabon shop in your area, look out for a new design to debut soon. Follow me on Twitter @soulparents and @blacktating for updates from my trip!
