conferencing it up.

To start on an (unfortunately) serious note, my friend’s 17 year old cousin, Kayla, is missing and hasn’t been seen since Friday.  If you’re willing, it would be wonderful if you could repost this/tweet it/pass it on – the more viral this gets, the better chance there is of finding her!  Please help Kayla get home safe and sound!

health update.

It’s been a week now since my allergies started acting up and I’m definitely feeling an improvement from where I was a week ago.  Gone are the sneezing and watery eyes, but I’ve still got the whole runny nose thing going on.  It’s starting to get to the point where I can feel a bunch of pressure in my ears, so I’m trying to be conscious of that.  I’m still not feeling 100% and unfortunately probably won’t for a few more weeks, but thankfully I feel like a functioning human being again!


I spent my morning at a conference listening to a few (very much over my head) presentations and doing a bit of networking.  A definite perk of events like that are the free swag!  I’m stocked up on pens and notepads to last awhile!

I swung through Bagel Beanery on my way to grab some breakfast.  I had a cheddar herb bagel with sun-dried tomato cream cheese.  Switchin’ it up from the usual…except I love this combination so much, it’s likely going to become my new usual!

It was a good event and I’m glad I went – plus, it’s always nice to have a change of scenery every now and again.  It was free and just down the road from my office, so I really had no reason not to go.  I skipped out on the afternoon sessions, but not before grabbing a boxed lunch on my way out the door!

For a boxed lunch, I was pretty pleased.  There was a vegan wrap with a bunch of stuff (asparagus, tomato, mushroom, celery, cucumber, etc.) and a few other goodies.  The wrap was a bit soggy by the time I ate it, but it was still good.  Plus, let’s be real, I’m not going to complain too much about a free lunch!

A chocolate chip cookie practically the size of my face?  Don’t mind if I do!

Do you ever attend events like conferences for work or school?  Do you like going?

SO sad and sooo sorry about your friends cousin. I hope it was just a misunderstanding and she comes home safely SOON.

That bagel looks AMAZIN. And I love conferences. Any excuse to get out of the office for a bit 🙂
