Qué Rica Vida

Okay, I am so tired and should be sleeping, but I wanted to share my day with you. I’m at the Qué Rica Vida event in Miami, hosted by General Mills. They invited a lot of press, and 20-something blogueras. They are treating us like reinas here and despite my shyness, I am having fun and feeling very loved by all the wonderful mujeres here with me.

Okay, here are some fotos!

(The view from my hotel room.)

And we went to dinner at a restaurant on the water called The Rusty Pelican. It was so beautiful – all of it. I had the churrasco and it was seriously the best piece of steak I’ve ever had.

I texted my husband to tell him how it was going. At one point I texted him that there were mariachi, and knowing my love for them, he became celoso until I sent him a photo to prove they were women.

(The beautiful and talented “Las Damas de Jalisco”, who came all the way out from Texas.)

I need to go get ready for a long day and have a few thousand cafecitos, but if you want to keep up with me while I’m traveling, keep an eye on my Twitter stream!

Disclosure: General Mills paid for my trip to Miami for their Qué Rica Vida media event. I received no compensation, monetary or otherwise, for writing about the event. All opinions expressed are my own.

  6. So cool! I was afraid something would come up, or that you’d back out, and not end up going. I’m so glad you went, and I want to hear juicy details when you get back.

  7. And you were so nice to keep up with me and make sure I was up and ready to go the next day. Gracias.
