Day 282: Treadmill Hogs

Waking up in a quiet hotel is one of the best feelings! Today I woke up bright and early to workout in the hotel gym to prep for my half marathon. I was shocked that at 6am the gym was popping. Even more unfortunate – there was a couple of chatty Cathy’s on the only two treadmills who were talking and walking slower than my grandma with one lung does. So after being relegated to the stationary bike, I still had the pleasure of hearing the two ladies talk through my headphones. Oh well.

Today I spend the entire day in meetings, but it was great to hang out with my counterparts from our other divisions. Not going to lie, I can’t wait to get home to my handsome fiancé!

Day 281: Valentine’s Dates

Ugh these early morning flights are killer! My flight left at 7:25am, so I was up way too early to head over to the airport! Today I’m heading up to Philadelphia for my favorite quarterly meeting. At my company, I work in one of three division offices. Once a quarter we meet up with the other two divisions to talk through best practices, learnings, and strategy. It’s great to actually match faces with phone voices too!

This quarter, one of our (male) co-workers accidentally set our meeting for Valentine’s Day! It’s funny – all of the women who attended said their male significant others didn’t mind at all (L included), but the men leaving behind their women were a different story!

After an amazing dinner at a Cuban place and a few mojitos, I’m pretty excited to hit the sack! Although this combination was cute and warm, I can’t wait to change into my PJs.

Sound off: do you ever travel for work?

Day 280: Quick Chat!

Happy busy Monday to me! I’m headed off to Philadelphia for business meetings tomorrow, so there’s so much that needs to be done today. I have about a bazillion things to do at work, plus that whole packing thing to take care of… I need more hours in this day. With that said, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet!

Today I woke up freezing, which is odd for me – usually I’m like a furnace. Since I was so cold, I ended up layering a shirt my sister got me for Christmas with this comfy sweater I bought back in college. The combination is super cute and warm!

Day 73: Work Trip

My work trip was absolutely amazing. Last night one of our vendors brought us out to dinner, which means lots of great wine and even some fish for me (still not as good as Boston but 1500 times better than Atlanta)! Plus there’s something amazing about sleeping in a room that you know you don’t have to clean.
