We have been in Nebraska the last few days, visiting my brother and sister in law here and I had the pleasure of speaking at The Nebraska State Dietitians meeting on social meeting. I had the best time, the opportunity came from meeting @RDAmber on twitter and it was a Joy to meet her in person, instant friends. My Dad came along for the ride to Nebraska city and watched too funny. The audience seemed to like it :-)
Learning more about tweeting with @chowandchatter. Good info #NAND12Seriously loved hearing @chowandchatter present at #NAND12, very engaging and personable#RDchat

I want to have @chowandchatter do Harry Potter movie quotes. Great to help encourage RDs to step up their social media #NAND12— Michelle Welch (@RDMichelleLNK) April 13, 2012@chowandchatter thanks for the brush up on social media! Even for a young almost dietitian there is so much to learn! #NAND12— Melissa Wallinga (@lisswall) April 13, 2012
Of course we had good food, here is a nice chicken kebab in a Persian restaurant
We visited a lovely old market area and I found a cool tea shop called Tea Smith
345 N 78th Street, Omaha, NE - (402) 393-7070
I got Jasmine a cute tea cup puzzle made out of wood
some of the shops instead the old market, definitely an area of Omaha worth the visit
An apple orchard in Nebraska City the town where I spoke, also the home of The Arbor Day Foundation the place where planting a tree to save the earth started, very cool. Did you know there are about 170 varieties of apple trees but we only eat about 6 types, this farm strives to preserve Antique varieties in a special orchard.
Outside Lied Lodge the place of the conference
It's good to see family and let the kids get to know their family in the US with my parents.
Have a wonderful start to the week everyone
