Thanks to everyone who offered up suggestions for the blog! You all have some great ideas. I’ve made a list and will be sure to consult it before future baking endeavors.
As you may have assumed, I’m back in New York now! Home sweet home. Traveling for work certainly has its perks, but it’s always good to get back to what you know after a long time away. And before you all get jealous of my international trips, let me assure you that they are not as glamorous as they may appear. I’m usually watching and analyzing market research focus groups. So my days and evenings are spent behind a one-way mirror, in a dark, windowless room – this does not bode well for jet lagged individuals – listening to different consumers share their thoughts on the same stuff over and over again. Interesting, yes! But it can get repetitive. And your butt gets sore from so much sitting! But I will say, the Business Class flights are quite luxurious! Love me some fancy cheese platters and fully reclining chairs!
Anywho…I had barely stepped off the plane at JFK when what did I do?
Attend an NYC Blogger Brunch!
This was my first big blogger meet up and it was great fun! Whoo! Melissa @ Fitness NYC organized the get together at Counter, a vegetarian restaurant in NYC’s East Village. The food was mediocre, the service was horrific, but the company was fabulous. I didn’t get a photo of the group. Bad blogger – I know! But here are all the supercool attendees who I know will post their own recaps, so check ‘em out!
