So I was away last week due to a business trip, I knew it was going to be a rough one and blogging just didn’t make the cut. It was a good trip overall but it was a lot of long nights, and it looks like I will be going back again soon.
This weekend was mostly about getting back to normal, cleaning and eating better. Let’s just say a lot of cocktails were had and eating out every night on the trip is not the norm for me so I had to detox.
We had some amazing food at the Brew Works, and also the Tapas place, the Chorizo plate was amazing. My boss hadn’t been to one before and she is sold we have to go back. By the third night we were all so beat so we made it an early night and I tucked in with a new book.
Sunday I went hiking (detox in full effect) and can I say I was struggling. This week will be all cardio all the time. 😉 I spent the rest of the night working trying to catch up. The rest of this month is going to be brutal.
I missed this little guy so much. I called my Dad to check up on him and he did great. When he came home he was so tired he fell asleep on his snack. Haha!
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.
Blogging while traveling is difficult; during busy work weeks as well. You had both. Hope you’re readjusting well. Missed your posts; happy you’re back. 🙂
Thank you. It has been very chaotic but I am sure I will find my groove again soon.

i LOVE white sangria…it’s my favourite summer drink. hope things get back to normal soon; travelling always throws everything off.
It is so light and I am much more a white wine girl. Me too! It has been crazy, and this is my busy time of year.

You are on the right track getting back to normal. Looks like you had a nice time. Goddess speed this week’
Love, SMD’s Momma
Thank you! It was relaxing and I got a lot done hopefully by Wednesday I’ll be caught up!
I tried to spend a lot of time relaxing this weekend too, last weekends events wore me out.
I love your hotel room, it looks so luxurious!
It was so hot I didn’t want to do too much either. It was such a nice hotel and the bar/restaurant in the lobby was really nice.
Coming back from trips is always hard, work or fun it doesn’t matter lol!! I love your new shoes!! Cardio will be a breeze for you this week dont worry! xo, biana
So true!! I am wearing them today and they are comfy. Ugh I struggled with all the crap I ate last week so it will be a challenge but it will be good to build back up my stamina.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’m planning to do no cardio this week, so between the two of use there should be some sort of balance. LOLOL
Hahaha! I feel so bloated it is a must!! 😉 Glad to be back! Of course not going to miss tomorrow!
Sounds like it was a great weekend and the weather was so nice. Although, personally, I thought it was a tad too hot. LOL. Ok, your doggie is so cute, I just want to snuggle him.
It was beautiful though a little hot, would have liked getting to the ocean. Haha! Thanks, me too. That face kills me, I constantly walk by him and just smoosh his face and give him kisses.
Trips can be exhausting so I understand why you couldn’t blog! I think work trips are a good excuse to indulge 🙂
It made for long days for sure! SO true though I am paying for it now! 😉

I think poor doggies worry themselves tired when their family is away.
Yes, plus he gets to play with my Dad’s dog and run themselves tired! Haha! I am in love with them, so comfy and perfect height too, not high at all.
Coming back from a trip and detoxing is the worst! It seems like it takes me weeks to get over a long trip, but totally worth the cocktails while on the trip 🙂 your little pup is so cute! I hate leaving mine!
The cocktails totally made it worth it! 😉 Thank you, it was so hard, I almost cried the next morning not having him wake me up with his normal routine. So good to be home!
Sometimes life happens and blogging has to take a back seat, no shame in that! That Chorizo plate looks so amazing! And I love your new shoes. I hope that you have a fabulous week!!
So true, work is getting crazy and it pays the bills. I mean Chorizo is always welcome on my plate! 😉

Those shoes are so pretty!
Thank you. I love them and no problems with wearing them either today.
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
Love how strong your hiking game is! And that white sangria looks delish! Where did you get sent for your business trip?
Thank you. I felt like a novice after a week of indulgences. We were in Pennsylvania, about an hour from Philly.
Bri @ My Life As... says
Welcome back! That Sangria & the Chorizo plate both look so so good! Awesome job on the hike! I really wish the deer flies & horse flies would go away here because they make being outside miserable & I’m jealous of your hikes. Happy Monday lady!
Thanks! It was a good night for sure with that combo. The mosquitoes were chasing me yesterday it was brutal. My town is spraying soon though which should help. Happy Monday!
Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis says
The white sangria looks delish! Traveling really does throw everything off and my diet goes out the window! Getting back on your routine feels good….
She muddled mango on the bottom, so good! I tried to bring a lot of fruit which helped but drinks and dinner ruined it. I worked out tonight, one down six more days to go! 🙂
welcome back! travelling is exhausting, no matter if it’s several hours away or just a couple, business or pleasure. or maybe thats just me lol. those shoes are fabulous!
It does take a lot out of you, I think just being off your routine makes it harder to bounce back. I am in love with them, comfy too.
Meg Taylor says
That white sangria looks delicious – definitely a favorite summer drink of mine. Also, what a cute hotel room!!
It is so light and refreshing, you can’t go wrong! It was a really nice hotel and the bar was a bonus.
Erin of TexErin-in-SydneyLand says
Those pillows at the hotel look a-may-zing! I’m a sucker for a good pillow. I bet Seamus was happy to have his mama home.
The bed was really comfy, and the pillows were soft. It was so good to be home and pick him up. I got so many snuggles.
The sangria looks so refreshing!
It was so good and much needed!
Meghan @ Champagne & Suburbs says
Girl, I’m with you! I’m having to detox from my work trip, too! Your new shoes are adorable! And yay for Seamus doing well! 🙂 xoxo
It is rough, i don’t know how people travel a lot for work. I feel so off. He was so good, it helps that my Dad totally loves him, and he has his dog to play with when he is there.
I LOVE those shoes!!
Thanks! They are comfortable and I’ve worn them three times already!
That white sangria looks delicious! I always feel like I have to detox after trips because of the sitting usually involved with the travel and then all the eating out.
It was so good, and much needed after a long day. Yes, all the eating out and not getting workouts in was tough. I brought fruit and nuts but the dinners were fattening.
glad you’re back! you were missed last week. those shoes look so pretty!!!
It’s good to be back. Though I have a vacation planned and another business trip. I am in love with those shoes, they go with everything!
Kimberlee @ I Have A Degree In This! says
I hear ya, sometimes you need a vacay from your vacay. Hope you’re getting back into the swing of things now. Good luck with your detox!
Thank you. I’ll catch up eventually! 🙂
