Kinda Looks Like A Motherboard, Right?

Man! You know you are a geek when you look out of your plane window and think Illinois looks like a computer motherboard. This girl has problems… BIG ONES! 🙂

So, I am on my first of three press trips that span out until mid-January.  A few weeks ago, I told you that I was invited to compete in a sandwich competition with Hillshire Farms. Well, THIS IS THE TRIP that I make that sandwich! EEEEKKKK! I met 6 of the lovely women I am competing against a few hours ago and am now back at the hotel waiting for my big moment. Why am I so nervous!?

It’s funny because it’s only 5:00 and I am absolutely ready for bed. Traveling WIPES ME OUT – even if it’s only a few hours in the air. Maybe it’s the cabin pressure? Who knows?

I’m going to be taking a ton of pictures tomorrow while visiting the Sara Lee kitchen. Did I mention I have to wear a hairnet? OH MY WORD. I am not ready for all of that. 🙂

Until tomorrow…

    GOOD LUCK Vera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I SOOOOO hope you win – what an amazing opportunity! Sending all my pixie dust your way!!!! Kick some sandwich butt!!!

  3. P.S. speaking of airplanes – i usually wind up with a brain freeze because I sit with my forehead plastered against the glass the entire flight. I’m an aviation nut – doesn’t matter if it’s commercial or private – I geek the heck out on any airplane. 🙂

    1. I’ve turned into a bad flyer (scared), but I still have to look out the plane windows – the views are amazing!

  4. Not a geek! it reminds me of one too! Get some rest and go win that contest, Vera! 🙂
