Today I go to Des Moines for the start of Annual Conference tomorrow! For the last three years in a row, Sarah and I have shared a hotel room - always ending up at the Holiday Inn despite trying for other venues. This particular hotel does not have a complimentary breakfast, so we buy bagels and cream cheese to eat in the room.
Every year, I have wished for a toaster for my bagel. I love toasted bagels, while untoasted are very "bleh" to me. So this year, after three years of wanting a toaster, I decided to do something about it!
That's right, I packed my own toaster! Joel thought I was crazy, but I think it makes perfect sense. I'll let you know how this turns out.
