Happy Monday, friends! How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you had some time to relax and have fun. Even though I was only home for 2.4 seconds before leaving town again, Riley helped me make the most of it.
The drive home from Charlotte was pretty rough on Friday, but as soon as I got home Riley was there and we decided to dive straight into a date night! I quickly changed and we headed out to La Tienda for some tapas and sangria.
It was a perfect welcome home treat! Riley had also cleaned the house, mowed the lawn, grocery shopped, and basically made sure I didn’t have any major to-dos on my day off. He encouraged me to relax on Saturday and not feel the urge to do chores. Surprisingly, I listened to him and vegged out alllllll day. I didn’t even shower. It was great.
Sunday morning started with a walk around the neighborhood with Bella, then it was back on the road, this time to Northern Virginia. I got to my college fair location early and stopped in at Robek’s for some beet, carrot, and apple juice.
I needed the boost, too, because that college fair was crazy! We were super busy for 3 straight hours and my voice was so tired by the end. Luckily, I had help. It takes 3 of us to cover the NOVA area, so we were all on top of our game.
After the fair, we packed up what was left of our materials and I checked into my hotel. I decided to order takeout from P.F. Changs for dinner, but they totally botched it. There was a 30 minute wait to pick it up, which was fine, but when I got there they’d lost my order! They weren’t even that apologetic about it either and told me it’d be another 30 minutes if I wanted to place my order again.
I was so hangry I left and went next door to the Cheesecake Factory instead. I ordered their vegan cobb salad, which was delicious, and then turned in early for the night.
I have plans to work out this morning before my work day gets started, but only if I can find a hair tie. I feel like I’m failing at this trip already. When can you ever NOT find a hair tie? I leave them everywhere! Except, apparently, in any of the bags I brought with me yesterday. <Sigh>
On that note, I’m gonna load up on a ton of coffee and figure out what materials in my hotel can be rigged up to hold a ponytail. Happy Monday!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
What’s one item you leave everywhere? I’m guilty of hair ties and 1/2 empty cans of La Croix.
