Roadtrip Meetup With Wanda Kubat-Nerdin

"Happiness is meeting an old friend for the first time."

I returned from a 3-week road trip on Monday and I am waaaay behind on sharing my fun meet-up experiences. I did write about meeting up with John Boles in Kuna, Idaho (Boise area). That was fun because John had just done an amazing job of working with some special friends I had referred to him.

My next opportunity for a meet-up was on my way through St. George, Utah where Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! and I arranged to meet for lunch.  What a treat that was!

When Wanda walked into the restaurant she came bearing a wonderful golf-themed gift basket packed in a box that said: "Golf is a fore letter word".  There were golf balls, tees, tea towels, a seriously amazing smelling caramel candle, and all kinds of tasty goodies.  I shared a lot with my friends along the way during the trip and still have some left!  Thanks Wanda!


Wanda and I met at the Italian Restaurant Cappeletties in St. George.  Wanda recommended the empanadas. Since I love empanadas and hadn't had good ones since I was in Argentina, I ordered them.  These empanadas were awesome... honestly as good or better than the ones I enjoyed so much in Argentina.

Wanda and I discovered we have quite a bit in common, including a love for the game of golf. Besides golf, we talked about a whole myriad of subjects ranging from the serious to fun. I love how her eyes absolutely sparkled when she talked about her husband, children, and grandchildren.  I'm sure we could have talked a few more hours had time permitted. 

St. George has always been one of my favorite areas because it is so beautiful. I will definitely be stopping to see Wanda again next time I travel through St. George. Hopefully, we can enjoy a game of golf together and maybe even some more empanadas at Cappeletties. 

Getting together with Wanda was definitely like meeting an old friend for the first time.

Oh Michael Jacobs 
If you ever get a chance to go to St. George, I highly recommend it.  It is beautiful and, more importantly, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! is there.

Good morning Nina Hollander 
It's amazing how you can feel like a friend to someone you've never met, isn't it? I'm hoping to get to the Carolinas to meet you and enjoy some of that wonderful golf I've been hearing about.

I always enjoy my meet-ups in Phoenix with you and the others there.  I did make a point of taking time to meetup with more Rainers on this trip too.  I still have a few more meetups to write about.

I know you two hit it off - and why not? You're both wonderful women with a lot of passion for life. That Wanda goodie bag is sure a nice bonus.
