A Day in Dallas

So......have I mentioned how much I love to travel?  

Today, I sit in an Airport Hotel as my husband has a day long meeting in Dallas.  

I have a great life!  I have options!  I can open the drapes in my 5th floor room and watch the airplanes take off. 

Or....I could buy some ear plugs and sit by the pool with towel in my hand to wipe the sweat from my brow (man it's hot here!) as I read America...The Last Best Hope!  

Or...I could walk a few feet from the Hotel Lobby and go through Airport Security and do a little shopping in the Airport Shopping centers!  Hudson News....here I come! 

What's a girl to do with so many options!  

Blog!  

I hope you are all having a great day.  I will be counting airplanes, wiping sweat from my brow, and reading by the pool.  Not a bad day!  

All joking aside, I will get out of the airport grounds tonight and join my brother-in-law and sister-in-law for a great steak dinner.  AND, the best news of all, I am meeting Allison Bottke IRL at 11:00 a.m.  She is coming to my home away from home and we will have lunch.  I feel as though I know her already--and yet, I'm a little anxious about seeing her IRL!  Reminds me of  meeting with Dawn just last summer; The Day I Met My Friend.     Blogging friends becoming REAL friends!  I love it!

I have to say I am really envious! I was going to ask you to give her my best and thank her for her book, but I just realized you were with her hours ago - I on the other hand have been stuck in a colonoscopy escapade!

But - I did meet a fairly new blog friend IRL today as well - I am going to post about it tonight, I hope.

Are you going to post a picture of the two of you? How neat. Two Minnesotans meeting together in Dallas.

Okay, I just went back and read your post on our time together, and now I'm really homesick to see you again! What a great few hours that was. And what a lot has happened since then! We have so much to catch up on!

Oh, I missed your visit with Allison, too - I am in the midst of reading her book, and I am getting much comfort from it.

And you, my dear friend, thank you for all of your support recently. You've been a blessing.
