Departure: ALDI HQ

Hi guys! Tomorrow is the big day! I am departing St.Louis for Chicago in the morning to visit ALDI Headquarters. ALDI was generous enough to invite me to their Test Kitchen Event. They are paying for my flight (I've never flown! Meep!) as well as my stay at a very nice hotel for the night. They have many things planned for me for Thursday, as well as Friday. I will learn a lot of information about ALDI and their products that I will be able to report back to you all upon my return!!

  1. I work in Genevea! Come visit me! I work at a Hair Salon at 18 North 4th Street. It is right across the street from one of the best Shoe store in the Chicagoland area. Giesche Shoes is some where you must visit if you are in Geneva. If you don't have time to come say hi to me, at least tell Greg and Brian at Giesche's Alicia Carriveau from J'Michael's set you!
