On The Road Again...

One of the great perks of my job is that I get to do a little business travel from time to time.

I've been to Charlotte for a company conference, which ended with a fun afternoon of mall browsing and Cheesecake Factory with Erin from Blue Eyed Bride- our first time meeting in real life!

I had an overnight trip to Chicago, where the main event was a food and wine tasting with master chef Rick Bayless himself:

Bayless Cookbook Signing
Lulu and the Master, Chef Rick Bayless

I'm currently sitting in a club lounge at the airport, waiting for a 10:45 flight flight to the East coast. The ultimate destination? *Orlando*! Say it with me, folks- Oooooooh!! Orlando!

I'm headed to a conference for one of our partner companies, which makes me both excited and admittedly? A little sheepish. This is my first time attending an industry function for my job, without the support of my Director or any coworkers by my side (thanks for throwing me into the deep end, Boss... I kid, I kid). I absolutely, pos-a-tootly *love* my job, basically to the eat-sleep-breathe level of adoration, so it's not like there's an impending sense of dread for the week to come. It's just that, you know, me? Being the sole representative for my company for the next few days? In sunny Orlando? Where I get to talk about an industry I love? Pretty big in my book.

Oh, and there's one other small thing- the closing event of the conference will be a private party here:

So there's that.

Bon Voyage!

LOVE Rick Bayless! His recipes are always spot on and similar to how my little Mexican grandma's tasted. *Almost* as good. ;)

Good luck at your conference!

Good luck at the conference! I went to see the Harry Potter stuff this past weekend. How fun to have a private party there. Let me know if you need any good restaurant recommendations or places to shop etc. or need anything. Enjoy!

Exciting. Super jealous about your facetime with Rick Bayless!

I used to get to travel for work a great deal, but it's been about 4 years since that was the case. Fingers crossed that my new gig will work in some travel.
