#MyFirstBusinessTrip

Right now, this Toledoan is in Kansas City, Missouri for my first business trip! Thanks to my employer, I have the opportunity to attend the #Sizzler13 conference, meet fellow digital media junkies, stay in a room on the top floor of the Westin, sleep in a king-size bed with white cotton bedding, swim in a large heated pool, eat KC’s famous BBQ and post, tweet, insta and blog ‘til my heart’s content. All while flaunting my carefully planned wardrobe. I’m pretty happy to be here.

Day 1:
When I arrived on Sunday, I changed into a comfortable and casual combo of a loose-knit sweater and white shorts to register with the conference and find a place to dine. I ventured all the way to the lobby’s bar where the menu’s lobster macaroni and cheese convinced me to get a table. I settled in with my Sizzler program, a glass of Riesling and the most decadent mac & cheese. I think I’m going to like business trips.
