Fitcation ’13 Giveaway Winners

What an amazing weekend we saw last weekend! Both for those who were attending Fitcation ’13 in person and those who were watching along on social media, the beauty of Paso Robles and surrounding areas was quite evident. Sure, there were some minor bumps in the road like you’ll have with any big event, but as  moms we’re used to rolling with the punches and just keep going.

This year we had some fantastic sponsors and we also offered giveaways to people who were tweeting about them (open to both those attending Fitcation in person and those who were following along at home), and we had over 2230 entries to these giveaways! So now what you’ve been waiting for, and today we’re announcing the winners of the giveaways! If your name is on this list, please be on the lookout for an email from me (@way2gomom)!

Fitcation at Home Schedule

ALL DAYS | Thursday October 10 – Saturday October 12

These events will be available for you to participate any and all days of Fitcation!

  • #Fitcation13 #Mamavation5K
  • Get to Know the #FitcationAtHome Attendees with a blog scavenger hunt! Once you RSVP, we’ll be picking something from your blog to use as a hint in a scavenger hunt so we can get to know one another – just like the girls at Fitcation will be. The scavenger hunt details will be posted soon, so make sure you register for #FitcationAtHome ASAP!
  • #FitcationAtHome Wine Country Tour – we want to share in the fun and neat experiences that the girls at Fitcation are having, so we’re preparing a scavenger hunt throughout the websites of the sponsors, destinations, and swag donors! Not only will we be able to check out wine country through their tweets and Instagram photos, we’ll get to check out the awesomeness for ourselves too! The scavenger hunt details will be posted soon.
  • Picture Yourself at #FitcationAtHome – we love to see the beautiful faces of the women in our community, and it’s a great way to get entries for the giveaways as well! We’ll be posting a list on Thursday of different pictures you can take – we can’t let the Fitcation attendees have all the fun, so we’ll be joining them with our own pics too! (Hint: I’ll be finding some SIP wine near me to take pictures with… and DRINK!)
  • Follow Fitcation Friends – once you register for Fitcation at Home, you’ll be added to our list of at home participants! We will be sharing follow lists of the social media links of our at home participants


DAY ONE | Thursday October 10

It’s the kick off of Fitcation! Since the girls are only doing afternoon activities on the Fitcation ’13 schedule, we will use this day to make sure everyone gets registered and has time to get started on the event-long fun above!

DAY TWO | Friday October 11

One of the best parts of a girlfriend getaway is the quality girl time! Even if you weren’t able to be an attendee at Fitcation, there’s no reason you can’t still enjoy the girl time! While the attendees are enjoying their complimentary reflexology massages during the Earth Footwear Presentation at Halter Ranch, Lydia will be hosting a Slumber Party Google+ Hangout for the #FitcationAtHome Attendees! She even has slumber party games planned, so grab a bottle of SIP wine and get ready to have a great girlfriend getaway from the comfort of your own computer!

Date: Friday October 11
Time: 9pm EST/6pm PST
Where: Google+ Hangout

We’ll have details on how to find the hangout ready for you on Friday!


DAY THREE | Saturday October 12

Part of the fun of attending events with other bloggers is getting to know other people in our niche better – and checking out their blogs to see what they’re doing and talking about! The Fitcation attendees will be having dinner at this super social media savvy restaurant called Eatz (they’ll be able to see a Twitter feed on a screen by the door, let’s make sure it has LOTS of #FitcationAtHome on it so they know we’re partying with them!), and we’ll be hanging out in a Google+ video chat and checking out each others blogs! From the list of people who RSVP’d for #FitcationAtHome, we’ll take turns visiting each person’s blog to leave some love, hosted by yours truly!

Date: Saturday October 12
Time: 9pm EST/6pm PST
Where: Google+ Hangout

We’ll have more details on how to find the hangout ready for you on Saturday! Make sure you RSVP at the top of this post to have your link shared in this chat!

So there you have it – our plan for #FitcationAtHome! Many people put thought and effort into this plan, including Lydia, Erica, Meagan, June, Sarah, and everyone else we bugged about it! It may not be as fun as visiting Paso Robles or San Luis Obispo County, but we’ll have plenty of reasons why we NEED to visit them soon!

So what do you think? Will you join us for #FitcationAtHome? Register and leave a comment here so we know you’re attending!
