I arrived on Thursday, a day later than many of my blogging friends. I was picked up at the airport by Connie (my roommate for the weekend) of Tails from the Foster Kittens and Lisa from A Tonk's Tail. After settling in, Connie and I went to Lisa's room, where she was rooming with GloGirly and Waffles.

We got to try the new Mad Kitty Cocktail from mike's HARDER and meet the Mad Kitty himself. I was starstruck and crushing a bit on this handsome orange boy.

Later that evening the four of us went to dinner at True Food Kitchen across the street from the hotel. The restaurant's menu is based on an anti-inflammatory diet. There were lots of selections whether you wanted vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free. I went for the turkey lasagna and pomegranate limeade. I wasn't sure the lasagna was going to hold up to my standards, but wow! It was good!
|Just as cheesy as you would expect lasagna to be.
After dinner, we stopped by Sprinkles Cupcakes inside the mall. You've got to have dessert while on vacation! I went for the dark chocolate and it was amazing. So amazing that I didn't even get a picture.
We went back and hung out with Waffles a little while longer before going to bed. It was like a grown up slumber party-chatting, laughing, and catching up. Definitely a great start to the weekend!
Check back tomorrow for my summary of Day 2!
