Meeting with Michelle & tomorrow's themed recipe exchange
I've never particularly enjoyed traveling for business. Being away from Oronzo and Snuggle Bug, for any amount of time, just isn't all that fun. Thankfully, my job only takes me away 2 or 3 times a year.

When I told Oronzo that I'd be traveling to NM again this month he said, "Hey, don't you have a blogger friend there?" I guess he pays attention more than I give him credit for! :)

Having the opportunity to meet up again with Michelle made the thought of this trip a little more positive, and meet we did, for dinner last night. Not only did I get to see Michelle, but also her husband, Joe, and beautiful daughter, Kayla! We met at the Community Center (on base).

Now, you may remember that I've met Michelle once before, last July, when I was in NM on business. Meeting again this time was so relaxed and comfortable, just like connecting in-person with longtime friends! Thanks for taking the time to meet up with me, Michelle! It was great to see you again and catch up!

Besides the visit with Michelle, I also want to mention tomorrow's Super Bowl Sunday themed Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange (thanks for the idea, Jen).

The recipes can be appetizers, soups, salads, or whatever you might consider serving at a Super Bowl party!

So, if you're interested in participating in this themed recipe exchange, feel free to grab the image that Susie with Bluebird Blogs so kindly designed for me (thanks, Susie!) and use it in your post tomorrow. See you then!

Too cool that you guys were able to meet up and that having someone to visit on the trip makes it a just a little easier to be far from home! Have a safe trip!

How absolutely wonderful that you and Michelle got to meet up. That is so awesome and gives me so much hope in meeting so many blogger friends. There are so many extraordinarily fabulous people that I have met blogging (you included of course!). Also, you are gorgeous! I figured you would be but you really are! You need to show that gorgeous smile around here more often!

Hugs to you! Now, off to find a great recipe!
