(CNN)—While President-elect Barack Obama met with President Bush Monday, Mrs. Obama met with head White House Usher Adm. Stephen W. Rochon to discuss how she wants things to operate when they move in in January.

Sources say they discussed everything from how to request meals, what they like to eat, and how formal a presence she wants the White House Staff to have.

An aide says the Obamas are pretty informal, but would not divulge specific requests at the time.
