What a week! For the first time in 10 months…I boarded a plane! Crazy, right? LOL. Yes, the work travel is back in full swing. Denver this week…Miami next…and San Fran a few weeks later. I hope Bella doesn’t forget what I look like. Actually, I think she and Dad are going to have a great time during my mini excursions. I’m not sure who will train who…but I’m guessing they are both in for a few surprises! Poor Ruby might have to keep them both in check.
I feel very fortunate to say that I am not feeling anxious or sad about traveling again. Ryan is an awesome Dad and I really enjoy my work (most days). A few days here or there of traveling is good for all of us. When I called home from Denver this week, Ryan and Bella were out for Mexican. I can just picture it…Ryan with a lime margarita on the rocks and Bella with an tiny umbrella tied to her bottle. They are quite the pair. Ryan, thank you for taking good care of our little girl!
If the jumpstart into travel wasn’t enough, I also attended my first Rodeo on Tuesday. Yeee-Hawww! Yes, Sir…our team-building activity included a National Western Stock Show. I have to be completely honest with you…it was NOT my thing. I will save my opinions for another forum but I can assure you…I will not go back. My heart goes out to the animals. That said, it certainly was an experience. From now on, I can use the phrase, “Look, this isn’t my first rodeo!”…and I won’t be lying!
Assuming fighting bulls and bucking horses isn’t your thing either, let’s get back to food! Today I have another Boudreau household favorite for you…Spinach, Goat Cheese, and Pepper Omelets! Truth be told…I let Ryan take the reigns on this one.
