Good Morning, Baltimore!

I always sing the opening song from Hairspray when I'm in Baltimore, much to my own chagrin. :)

Got home tonight after two days at a marketing conference. Some good sessions... some not so good, but I think I got a few tips out of it that will come in handy. The last session I attended on social media was worth the price of admission, so at least it ended on a good note.

Two of my co-workers also went, so we enjoyed a ridiculously good dinner last night in Little Italy at Sabatino's. It was too delicious! Most of the restaurants in this 12-block area are in old houses, so the atmosphere is quaint too. Our waitress was delighted to be serving a table of girls (she mentioned it a couple of times!) and recommended some great dishes. I had the best lasagna I've ever eaten!

We got back to the hotel around 8 p.m., and I was so stuffed that I forced myself to put on my sneakers and head out for a fast-paced walk before it got dark. One co-worker told me she went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for 90 minutes... I only walked for 30, but it made me feel better!

And confession time: Rob and I agreed to DVR the Lost finale and watch it together tonight, but I couldn't help myself and watched it at the hotel last night. Good thing I did! Rob called this morning to say that the DVR only recorded the first hour. WHAT?!? I'm glad I was sneaky and watched it, but I'm sorry Rob won't see it! I'm sure ABC will air it again, or he can just watch it online.

We are in town for a rare Saturday tomorrow, so we plan to hit some yard sales in the morning (a favorite way of spending time together and finding great treasures!), and then head downtown DC in the afternoon for a picnic on the mall and a couple of museums. Fingers crossed for no rain!

Have a great weekend!

Oh my goodness! A blast from my past. So good to hear from you on my blog. I had to jump right over and check yours out.

I'd love to catch up. Looks like you snagged yourself a cutie patootie. And you look fabulous in your photo. When did you marry and what exactly are you doing now?

E-mail me!

(Remember when we had the midnight fire fighter session and we were singing "Fight the fire in our apartment dorm" to the tune of "Light the fire" ?!! I love that memory.
