Well friends I've just returned home from a whirlwind work trip to Florida. I was hoping for a little R&R in the sunshine the day we arrived, but alas the clouds and rain had rolled in...so what else is a girl to do given those conditions...but shop.
First up was a stop for lunch at Crispers. Crispers is a Lakeland, Florida based chain of fast casual restaurants with an emphasis on health‑conscious fare and a menu that consists mainly of salads and sandwiches. (Wikipedia)...and lunch was ah...mazzzzing!!!!
Then we headed to the outlets (while my boss headed to the golf course - win/win!) It was a fairly "early" night for the trip, as we were back to the hotel by 10pm to hit the hay. I had good intentions of getting up for a run on Friday morning, but after an extremely long Thursday (up at 2am to head to the airport, after only 2hrs of sleep...and then no nap during the day)...I literally passed out, and I knew I needed my sleep, as the next few days were going to be long ones...so sleep it was - and then off to work for the day...to watch dress after dress for 9 hours straight come down the runway...I swear after awhile they all look exactly the same...and then try doing that for another 2 days. Every time we break or have lunch, I like to get out of the AC and into the Florida sunshine (those from Florida think I'm just plain 'ol crazy)...but seriously...how can you pass this view up
Friday night we headed to the yacht club (yes I know...my job doesn't suck). I'll let the pics speak for themselves
Saturday night after work - they arranged for the entire office staff and all of us international distributors to head out for some bowling. I was a little skeptical at first...but we ended up having a blast!!! It was great to get out of the office with everyone, and spend some time together in a more relaxed environment - and just having some good 'ol fashion fun together
When we headed back to the hotel - that's when the fireworks happened...in my hotel room...
I had decided that I should probably plug in my GPS watch to charge...the sparks started flying so I quickly pulled the plug out, at which point the edge of of watch fused to the plug...so I literally had to rip it off...so now I need to "shave" the 2 exposed metal areas on my watch so that I don't injure myself...talk about a scary moment.
And today I leave you with this
Have you ever electrocuted yourself?
Do you get to travel anywhere for work?
