I’ve been in Las Vegas this past week at the annual BlogWorld Expo conference. I’ve met some really great people who have been kind and encouraging. This week has been a huge boost to my enthusiasm for all things Home Ec 101.I have a feeling I’m going to be pretty jet lagged when try to rejoin life on the East Coast, but it has been a great experience.

Since last week’s Friday free for all was so fun, I think I’m going to make it a part of Retro Saturday? Feel free to brag on yourself or share your talent for always picking the longest line at the grocery store. Maybe that last one in just me. Have fun, the comments are wide open.
