Spotted

by Meghann on June 30, 2010

I was spotted at my booth this morning!

This is Amy. Everyone say ‘Hi Amy!’ πŸ™‚

Amy and her friends were huddled together just outside my booth this morning and when I went to offer them free pencils Amy stepped forward and proclaimed ‘I read your blog!’ It was fun and exciting to find a blog reader in the craziness that was ISTE 2010. My co-worker immediately told me to grab a my camera so she could snap a photo of us and then I shoved about a billion free pencils into Amy’s bag. πŸ™‚

That was actually a fun note to end this year’s conference on. I’m not sure if my company will be returning to this particular conference, but I would say it was fun attending this year and playing with all the ‘big boys’ in the field.

As predicted my yogurt did little to old me over this morning. I stopped on the way into the center and grabbed some Heart Thrive cookies and nibbled on them through the morning.

I had my heart set on Falafel King for lunch. Not sure why?

I ordered the falafel combo with tabouli and buba ganoush.

With a whole wheat pita on the side.

The food was actually pretty bad. This was nothing compared to the mediterrean delis down the street from my work in Orlando. I think that place has spoiled me. Oh well. I ate about half of everything pictured above and washed it all down with a refreshing unsweetened passion fruit tea from Starbucks.

I’m currently waiting to board my plane at DIA and am debating a smoothie for dinner. My mouth is so dry and a smoothie just sounds much more refreshing then trying to carry on a sandwich or salad of some sort.

Hmmmm… decisions, decisions.

So fun to run into a blog reader.

I say grab the smoothie if you want. Just grab a snack in case you are hungry too.

11 theprocessofhealing June 30, 2010 at 7:24 pm

It’s like your celebrity! I would pretty excited to bump into one of the “famous” food bloggers πŸ™‚

Disappointing falafel is hard to get over. Falafel should never be disappointing. That should be a law or something.

15 Faith June 30, 2010 at 10:15 pm

What a fun blog celebrity moment πŸ˜‰ The tea looks so refreshing though, and I hope you went with the smoothie! Not that I’m craving them right now or anything…

16 Emilyeatsclean June 30, 2010 at 10:34 pm

I hope that my blog becomes successful enough for me to randomly have someone walk up to me and introduce themselves as a blog reader!! That’s sooo cool! πŸ™‚

17 Carolyn @ lovinlosing.com June 30, 2010 at 10:45 pm

LOVE the unsweet passion ice tea from SBUX! Sometimes I wonder if it’s actually unsweetened, though!

18 Nicole June 30, 2010 at 11:11 pm

Falafels look so tempting, I think I really have to try n make ’em sometime soon. And you’re famous! I was pretty crazy happy when I saw you in Shape mag, I wanted to tell everyone I knew you haha, or, ya know, that I read your bloggie πŸ™‚

So sad when you have to say the food is bad.

Free internet at Starbucks starting today!!!!

24 Kittie July 1, 2010 at 8:56 am

How do you have a bad falafel…? how can that even happen….I’m perplexed.

25 Marissa July 1, 2010 at 9:38 am

Ah, that’s fun! HI AMY!

26 dianacheung July 1, 2010 at 10:31 am

if I ever spotted you i would probably scream!! Do you ever get “paranoid” that someone looking at you actually reads your blog? BTW I can eat the falafel plate up no prob!

27 Stephanie July 1, 2010 at 12:30 pm

Dear Amy,
I have the shirt you’re wearing.
I ran it too- in Houston.
It was my first race
The end!

28 amy July 18, 2010 at 5:33 pm

that race was my goal race after starting to run in august of 09. thinking about doing the half this year but i might be too chicken! but also toying with the idea of doing a second sprint tri this fall and actually doing a training group, so that would end the half thoughts for me….

29 amy July 18, 2010 at 5:31 pm

i am just now getting caught up! but it was so nice to meet you at the conference! after we walked away, i thought-maybe i shouldnt have done that!
