#RT15 Monday

Today  I drove from Kansas to Dallas for the RT Convention – a gathering of people who love to read and or write romance!  I thought I’d give a try at doing a daily recap.

So.  Roadtrip.

And you know you’re in Texas when you see this at the gas station:

We finally made it to the hotel, the Hyatt Regency Dallas and unloaded.  And then my 2nd sign that I wasn’t in Kansas any more: $19/day parking!  In an outdoor lot, where they do not guarantee the safety of my vehicle or belongings.

The inside of the hotel was much more fun!

There are signs everywhere – including the elevator doors!


Lots of wrapped columns, including this one featuring Tessa Bailey!

A two story fountain in the lobby.

A Shelly Laurenston sign!  I’ll be tweeting this picture to try to win… Something?

More hotel decorations. 🙂

Even our hotel key cards are awesome!

After getting checked in, we consulted with the conceirge, Jill, who was incredibly friendly and helpful!  We walked to a nice restaurant Hoffbrau (I think!) and enjoyed supper.  We walked past the site of JFK’s assassination and through a nice part of Dallas.  None of us got pooped on by the very many birds we saw and heard.  I’m predicting that record won’t stand all week!
I think meals here will be a challenge, as the in hotel restaurants are small and expensive.  It’s a good 15 minute walk to the restaurant area of town, and there’s lots of rain predicted this week.  It will be interesting!  I’m glad we brought snacks!

Tomorrow is a pre-conference day.  We already scouted out a breakfast place (Thank You Conceirge Jill!).  We should be able to get through registration and get goody bags.  Mindy is going to a blogger conference and Rebecca and I will look around a bit and relax a lot!

I’ll try to check in tomorrow!
