My Happy Place . . . Panera

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and go to your "happy place." 
Wanna see mine?

Panera is my happy place.  

I've told Mr. E many times that I could eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at Panera EVERY day and be a happy camper.  {I guess he was listening because for my birthday, he gave me a Panera gift card.  In my Christmas stocking, there was another Panera gift card. :) Yay, Mr. E!}

Our family goes to Panera quite a bit, and it is always my suggestion for a girl's lunch place.  But, what I *really* love?  Going all my my lonesome, ordering a Cinnamon Crunch Bagel, a decaf cappuccino, and  breaking out my laptop to catch up on blog reading. And tweeting.

{I hate to break it to "the coffee shop on every corner", but Panera makes *the best* cappuccino.}

I was contacted to be part of a group of "Panera bloggers," sharing recipes (!), waxing poetic about bread, etc.  (First, I had to check with Mr. E to make sure he was not pulling my leg. I mean, when you get an email from your favorite restaurant, it seems a little suspicious.)  I'm hoping maybe Panera will let me LIVE in the kitchen for a while....we'll see.
In the meantime, what do YOU love about Panera?

*This is a sponsored post, but my opinions and my love of the cinnamon crunch bagel are ALL my own!*
