Quick Trip to Florida

Hello all. How is everyone? I got back late Thursday night from traveling for work for a few days, hence the blog has been a little quiet. The company I work for has an office down near Orlando and we had a big meeting onsite. Those who know me well, know that I like traveling for personal vacations, but am not a huge fan of traveling for work.

Why you ask? Well, traveling stresses me out. Even when vacationing, I don’t fully relax until I’ve arrived where I’m supposed to and have checked in to my hotel. I have developed a little OCD when it comes to traveling over the years. I am constantly worried about being late, missing flights, etc. So the end result is that I tend to make people I’m traveling with leave extremely early and then sit with me in airports and train stations for obscene amounts of time. Boring at times, yes. But it’s worth it for them not to have to travel with a stressed out and crazed Lindsey.

What about you? Are you a laid-back travel or a worry-wart like me?

So my travel went well. I was going to post from the hotel, but then things got hectic and I ran out of time. I was pretty pleased to have my very own suite for this trip – not that I spent any time in the hotel really. But the room wasn’t bad.

All this space for little old me!? Yup, I had a full suite to myself. I barely used any of it.

Plus, this crazy hotel served a complimentary breakfast (normal) and dinner (what?). We didn’t partake in the dinner, but I could not get over the fact that they provide their guests with two free meals a day! I saw a ton of families staying there and it seems like a pretty smart plan in my book to make a trip to Orlando a bit more affordable.

Today is Saturday and I’m headed to Connecticut in a bit for a little reunion with my college girls. I am also going to try to squeeze a short run in before that. I slept until 8:00 a.m. today – I think I really needed the rest. So I’ll only run maybe 4-5 miles this morning. It hasn’t been a great running week for me, but a few miles is better than nothing.

Also – I’m very jealous of everyone who went to BlogHer and will be going to the Healthy Living Summit. For some reason, my schedule never coincides with those events, but I love reading the recaps!

Anyway – it’s a gorgeous day for a quick run, maybe some pool time at my friend’s house and then some quality friend time! Hope you all have a great weekend!


Tying Up Loose Ends

Happy Saturday all! I’m up at my parent’s house dropping off Mr. Murph (my parents are cat-sitting while we’re away) and doing some pre-vacation laundry. I can’t believe we are leaving tomorrow. It’s a 10:40 p.m. flight, so I am considering taking some NyQuil or Tylenol PM to knock me out on the flight. Has anyone else ever done that with an overnight flight?

My last few days of work were crazy with trying to get stuff finished and tie up all my loose ends. My department co-workers and I also went out to a late lunch/happy hour on Thursday as a goodbye lunch to our boss.

For lunch I had the turkey club (they noted it was free range on the menu, which I loved) from PJ Clarkes.

The only problem with the sandwich was that the bread was so hard, I could barely bite through it. I probably only ended up eating about half of the sandwich because it was so tough.

Then we all shared a celebratory cupcake (or two).

And here is our cute little team…

It was such a gorgeous day outside by the Hudson!

Friday was a whirlwind. Last minute projects and requests were flying my way, so I was shooting off emails and writing like a crazy woman. But it felt good to power down at 4:30 knowing that I had taken care of everything! And now I am officially on VACATION until September 13th! And it feels amazing. 🙂

Tonight the real packing and preparatory mayhem begins! Have a nice weekend all!
