On the final day of the POM Harvest Tour, the group toured the POM Wonderful offices, the fruit sorting and packaging plants, and the juicing and bottling plant. I’m honestly surprised by how fascinating I found the experience. The POM Wonderful process is incredibly interesting! The tour started in the main office where we outfitted ourselves for the tour. Hardhats and hairnets are sexy! 😉 The first area we toured was where the pomegranates are…

I can’t believe today was our last day on the POM Harvest Tour. It’s been such an amazing experience! I’m really not ready to go back to the “real world.” 😕 Workout Again, I woke up before the sun this morning (darn East coast time), so I hit the gym for a quickie workout. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical, followed by 15 minutes on the treadmill. My hip has been sore from all…

Yowsahs! 😯 Today has definitely been a whirlwind! I need to play a little catch up on CNC to get you guys up to speed. After touring the POM orchards, the group drove to Visalia to check-in to a new hotel for the night. Even though I’m a serious slob when it comes to staying in hotel rooms, it wasn’t any trouble to pack up my things and move to a new location for the…

Brad, the Vice President and General Manager for POM Wonderful’s produce business, shared his knowledge of the POM harvesting process while we toured the orchards.

The POM pomegranate orchards were SO COOL! The orchards were absolutely gorgeous! I still can’t believe that I spent the afternoon in a pomegranate orchard in California! The group spent a couple of hours in the orchard learning about pomegranates from the POM team. We got to pick them right off the trees! And taste them! 😀 The pomegranates were so vibrant and fresh! And, of course, delicious! The bloggers were in full action in…

After our two-drive, we arrived at the POM pomegranate orchards. Or so we thought!?! We actually arrived at an orchard of almond trees! Cool! 😀 Most of us had never seen an almond tree, so we were thrilled to experience one up close and personal. Yay for almonds (and pomegranates)! We love almonds! After having fun with the almond trees, it was time for the fly overs of the POM orchards. I was already pretty…

Bright and early this morning, I met the POM bloggers for a continental breakfast in the hotel lobby. I never know what to expect with continental breakfasts, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a huge spread of healthy options! I was especially psyched to see a mini oatmeal bar! 😀 I swear, oatmeal is the only meal that holds me over for hours. I also helped myself to some fresh fruit: cantaloup, watermelon,…

Good morning, bloggies! 😎 I woke up almost 45 minutes before my alarm was scheduled to go off. Darn East coast time! 👿 Being up so early, I figured that I might as well seize the day with a blog post. So, we’ve got a busy (and exciting) day ahead of us! After breakfast at the hotel, we’re headed to the airport for the POM Orchard Fly Overs. Eek! 😯 I already have butterflies in…

Thanks for welcoming me to your city, Fresno! I’m psyched to be here! Yay! 😉 I met Caitlin at the airport just seconds after finishing my previous blog post. She actually caught me in full blogger action! After grabbing her luggage, we took a taxi to the hotel where we bumped into a few of the other bloggers, who are attending the POM Wonderful Tour too. I was especially excited to see Gina and Heather! I’ve…

Hi, guys! I’m blogging from high in the sky somewhere between Colorado and California on my way to Fresno. I still can’t believe I made this flight on time! My morning flight from Boston to Denver was so incredibly relaxing. I did some work on my laptop, enjoyed a hot cup of Starbucks coffee, and listened to music– I even took a little nap. It was the perfect flight. All travel should be that way!…

Murphy makes me smile each and every day. Just LOOK at that face! My husband also makes me smile everyday. He’s a goofball and we’re both kids at heart, so it usually doesn’t take much for us to laugh! He’s also handsome, so that helps too! 😉 Awwww! My autumn decorations also made me smile today. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love apple picking, cider donuts, vibrant foliage, all things…
