I have to admit (and you have probably heard me say this before) BUT, Summer is my favorite season.

 I also have to admit I love Winter almost (almost) as much.

Field Trip Friday, Union Station Los Angeles

Happy Friday!  It’s one of my favorite days of the week.  I am excited to share Field Trip Friday, Union Station Los Angeles today.  Hubby and I spent most of the week down in California.  We visited with his 89 year old dad and some of our grandkiddos.

While were were there we took a day trip to Union Station, Los Angeles and Olvera Street.

I was glad I had my camera for pictures of the grandkiddos. THEN when I saw the architecture of the building, I KNEW YOU needed to see it, too.

Gluten Free Fat Free Banana Muffins

Having my recipe for Gluten Free Fat Free Banana Muffins is one of our favorite breakfast treats.  It’s healthy, fresh, gluten free and fat free.  I like using applesauce, instead of butter as a leavening.  It adds moisture and a great texture.

On The Road to SOFAB

I am SO excited!  I am going to my FIRST blog conference.  I have been trying to attend one since I first started my blog.

Now I am On The Road to SOFAB…

luggage-tag

 

The session I am attending is in Los Angeles, on January 30th.

Did you know that bloggers do more that post on their blogs?  They have to learn HOW TO write a post, take pictures, learn the ins and outs of social media, keywords, etc…

With interactive and hands on sessions, I am going to learn a lot.  The sessions are paired with fun city-specific adventures where I will put my newly learned skills to the test.  EEP!

The Q&A session will feature Alea Milham from Premeditated Leftovers.  Alea will talk specifically to us about SEO and social media.

The conference will be held at Speed Zone LA in the City of Industry, with Johnny Rockets catering for the day. (Nummers!)

If you are a blogger and want to attend in LA with lots of other fabulous bloggers, you can register here: SOFAB On The Road  There are also conferences in Atlanta, Bentonville, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Miami, Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, and Seattle.  Check here for the FULL schedule, dates and venues.

So, in the next few weeks I will be preparing to learn, grow, and have some fun  On The Road to SOFAB.

Wish me luck…
