On Tuesday I met up with two of my good friends from Mandeville, Chrissy and Penny. (Hiiii Chrissy!) Chrissy’s hubby Chris came also, and we had a great time at an awesome restaurant, Copeland’s! I had the most amazing Crawfish Ravioli. And when I say amazing, I am not exaggerating! I also had a slice of Strawberry Cheesecake. :o) Can we say fat overload? Absolutely, but it was worth it.
On Wednesday my co-worker, Amanda, and I were at the conference during one of our breaks. During our breaks we usually stayed at the booth or would go sit outside in the vendor area of the hotel. I decided to stop at the restroom and would meet Amanda outside after. Well, let me just say that I reeeeally wish I would have gone with her, because when I finally did show up I was told that I had just missed President Bush. (AKA, G.W.) He was dressed in a suit and sneakers. :o) Now, all politics aside, I really do admire President Bush as a person. Obviously, I didn’t get to see him, but I did take a few shots of his ride and the Secret Service. These guys were so cool.
After a long and exhausting week, we headed back to Charleston on Thursday. We had a layover in Atlanta, so Amanda and I found the best seats in the house and watched planes take off into the sunset. Literally.
Overall, I really enjoyed the trip and am thankful that I was able to go to the conference in such a great city. I hated being away from my hubby, but the time apart really made us stronger as a couple. I’m looking forward to vising Louisiana again, but I am so glad to be home.
