Day 254: My Little Secret

I’ve got a little secret to confess. I go to bed early. Not like 10pm, like normal people my age – I’m a solid 8:30 lights-out kinda gal. I blame a little bit of my habit on my ankylosing spondylarthritis and some on my farm girl roots, but it’s a big deal if I’m up late.

Fast forward to tonight. I stayed up past 1am (yes, I’m getting my medal in the mail later this week). Right now I’m down in Delray Beach, Florida visiting printing houses for work. We’re staying in a gorgeous hotel not too far from the ocean with one of our vendors. Our night started at an old school arcade, which was awesome. Of course, I picked the one pinball machine without a beer holder and managed to spill my drink within .2 seconds. From there, we made our way to an amazing place for dinner. I ate about fourteen appetizers, but I’m pretty sure that calories don’t count when you’re out of your zip code. After dinner we ended up at a complete dive bar, pretending to smoke candy cigarettes and dancing. It’s the first time I’ve ever been to a bar in business casual – that’s for sure.

Onto my outfit! We flew down earlier this morning, so I wanted to wear an outfit that was comfortable but cute. I bought this skirt a while ago, but I’ve had trouble integrating it into my closet because it’s so poofy. I liked the combo with this navy slim fit shirt – I think I’m going to give this skirt a bit more consideration in the future. After all, it has pockets!

Sound off: what’s your ideal bedtime?
