Yesterday was a successful day of work in Charlotte. My first visit was at 8:00 and afterwards I had some time to kill until my next one. It was hot outside, but I’m been DYING to have something pumpkin! I think it’s hilarious how the second Labor Day comes and goes everyone just becomes completely crazed over pumpkin stuff.
I can’t judge, cause I’m one of those people. I changed my house wax scent to pumpkin spice on Sunday. And I’m not sorry. *Side note: Glade now makes wax melts! I thought this was exciting.
Anyway, I stopped at a Caribou Coffee and got myself an iced pumpkin chai latte. So good! In warmer weather, this is a great alternative to a pumpkin spice latte.
After a couple more visits, I hit up a local place called BrickTops for lunch after getting some recommendations. I started off with their wedge salad.
Mmmm, bacon-y deliciousness. After the wedge salad, I had their Goat Cheese Vegetarian flatbread. It had artichokes, red peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and onion. It was soooo good! I had one of the leftover slices later and I still have some in the fridge at my hotel.
After lunch, I had another appointment and then I was done! I hit up the mall for a while and checked out some stores before heading back to my hotel to catch up on work and emails.
I started feeling kind of “off” in the afternoon. Not sure if it was dehydration from traveling or what, but I stopped to grab some green juice for some extra nutrition.
Have you ever had those? I’ve only had the Green Machine flavor, but the others look good too. They’re kind of pricey, so I don’t buy them often, but it’s not exactly as if I can just juice some kale in my hotel room.
I had a pretty sleepless night last night. I don’t really sleep well without Riley next to me and this is even worse in a hotel. I woke up pretty much every hour. Booooo. As a result, I’m saving my workout for later this afternoon when I have more time and can maybe get a nap in first.
Breakfast today was eaten in my room while I got ready- some green juice and a granola bar. That’s not a lot for me, so I’m sure I’ll be hungry in two hours, but maybe I’ll get lucky and one of the high schools will give me more snacks (perks of being a college rep).
Hope you all have a great day and I’ll catch up with you later!
Do you sleep well in hotels/without your spouse?
What’s your favorite pumpkin food/drink?
