Yoo-hoo ... are you still out there? I've been buried for a few weeks, and I'm just poking my head up to see if life still exists in the blogosphere. TravelinOma needs refreshing!
I really miss writing. Tonight I sent a bunch of emails to my new-found real friends (as opposed to you, my long-lost virtual friends) and my fingers got carried away. These unsuspecting new friends got lengthy compositions (enhanced by my thesaurus, no less) as answers to questions like "When does the meeting start?" I realized it's time to get back to the folks who understand me.
I even brought refreshments!
You can choose from Chocolate Peanut Butter-filled, Pineapple Coconut, Lemon Curd or Chocolate with Caramel in the cupcake cabinet, or Madagascan Vanilla, Chocolate Brooklyn Blackout, or Red Velvet in the signature cake cupboard. I would highly recommend skipping the treats altogether and having something healthy, like the Magic Potato.
Sit down by the fireplace and enjoy a sweet potato, dressed in buttery brown sugar and crusted pecans, topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Seriously, you have to eat it to believe it! Don't you wish I was more than a virtual friend? We could hang out together at The Chocolate, a dessert cafe.
For you locals, I'll give directions: it's in a cute little old house at 9118 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, UT. There's another one in Orem, Utah at 212 South State Street. And they have wedding showers and cupcake birthday parties! ($7 a kid) Check it out: www.thechocolatedc.com
The reason I'm telling you this is so you'll be inspired to treat yourself to something. It doesn't need to be chocolate covered—it could be a sentimental book, a spring-time drive with the windows down, or even an hour in the blogosphere. Anything that gives you a chance to relax and feel good about yourself. It's totally refreshing!
