California Here We Come

I leave for California tomorrow, and I couldn't be more excited! Several months of planning and preparation will finally pay off and come to a close. These trips for my job are always exhausting, mainly because I have to be "on" for practically 15 hours a day. We only host the meeting portion for a regular 8-hour workday, but as a client manager, the "work" doesn't really stop as we continue the day's activities with cocktail hours, client dinners, etc. I'm not complaining- I love this part of my job. It's the small (and rare) taste of event planning I get. It's more of a clarification that I am not going to California to play- at least not for the first part of the trip ;) But even just being outside of the office and doing something different is refreshing. It breaks up the monotony and helps me enjoy my work just a little bit more.

So after all the work is done, Laura comes and we will be enjoying 3 days of uninterrupted beach and hang out time! I am SO looking forward to a girls' weekend with this sweet friend. We've both had such crazy schedules lately. Ok, let's be honest. My schedule has been crazy and Laura has been patient haha. So this will be a great way for us to celebrate being done with various commitments and just spending time catching up. And the thought of laying on the beach for a few days doesn't hurt either ;)

I really wish that Nicki could be there too; it would just complete our trio. But we'll just have to wait until August for some time with her in San Antonio!

California, here we come!


  1. I'm so excited that you are finally getting a well-deserved break! You have most definitely earned it! I hope you take lots of pictures and make sure to sing one Kareoke song... haha I can always dream about that last one though. ;)

  2. YAY!! California, we have been waiting so long for you!!!
