Burlington, VT —> Yuma, AZ —> Lancaster, PA

And I’m spent.

It was an incredible 10 days””amazing memories were made and plenty of great times were had””but, wow, guys, I’m tired. Of course, it was all worth it, especially since I got to see my college roommate get married this past weekend, and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. She’s one of my favorite people ever, so I absolutely wanted to be there to celebrate with her.

Rewind to yesterday morning

Back at the airport. Same terminal and everything! This time, I finally tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte””iced, of course! I’m happy to report it was pretty darn tasty, and I loved every sip. I had it made with soy milk and 2 pumps of pumpkin, which was the perfect combo””creamy and not too sweet.

My flight was delayed and then there was traffic getting out of Philly, which meant I didn’t have time to stop for lunch, but my welcome bag from the bride and groom included a bag of crab chips, which I was soooo thankful for. I housed them as soon as I arrived in my hotel room!

Both the ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful. I cried during both! Haha!

The reception was such a fun time, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from this couple!

I woke up super early this morning to catch my flight back to Boston. An iced soy latte was much-needed.

Now I’m eating breakfast and blogging at the airport while I wait for my flight to board. I randomly purchased a Ginger Lemon Cashew Nothin’ But granola bar and just had to tell you guys about it. It was so tasty with lots of healthy ingredients inside””definitely look for it the next time you travel!

Question of the Day

What would you choose right now: a hug, coffee, vodka, or sleep?



  1. Definitely sleep. I was up at 4:30 both days this weekend because my husband was up early to go fishing. If I didn’t wake up with him he’d end up forgetting to take at least one thing with him. I wish we had a hammock to take a nap in. The weather is great today!

  2. SLEEP! we were up early yesterday to go to a cow auction ( seriously) then I stayed up too late drinking wine and now my 2 year old twins will not nap! Sleep, oh how I miss you!

  3. I think I would choose the hug and/or the XL coffee. I could definitely see how you would need all 3 after the crazy travel week you’ve had! I hope you get some much needed R&R and some Quinn/Murphy snuggles; I am convinced that baby snuggles can cure anything!

  4. I would wind down with a nice chilled vodka and then have some hugs with the hubby to fall asleep with!
    Sounds like crazy times but aren’t those often the best moments?! I love always having something to look forward to and get excited about! 🙂

  5. After you said PSL, I think I’d choose coffee! 😀 Thanks for igniting that huge craving when the nearest Starbucks is literally hundreds of miles away! haha.
    You look gorgeous in the wedding photo! Love the pink necklace 🙂

  6. More sleep, with a PSL on my nightstand when I wake back up. Not enough downtime this weekend to recharge after previous weekends away from home. Sad that I’m already looking forward to next weekend? Hope you take time to relax and settle back into home life. =)

  7. I ate that same ginger lemon cashew bar heading out of Newark airport yesterday. It was delicious and then I realized it didn’t say it was a single serving, but it was 170 calories per serving and 2 servings – It wasn’t that big. I think I’ll stick with Kind bars. It was delicious though.

  8. I would definitely choose sleep since I didn’t enjoy the liberty of having one during the vacation! I mean yeah the trip sure was fun but I am also looking forward into reuniting with my bed and go on a deep slumber.
