I’m back in Boston!! Well, technically, I’m 45 minutes outside the city at my in-laws house, but close enough, right? 😉 Mal and I are having dinner here and then driving back into the city to sleep in our own bed tonight. I really missed being home, but I need to gear-up for a trip to Chicago on Thursday for the Healthy Living Summit! I’m excited for it!
My morning started with an iced soy grande latte from Starbucks in the cab on the way to Penn Station.
With all of the swag that I acquired at BlogHer, I had quite a lot of stuff to carry back to Boston. Thankfully, my husband helped me out.
At the train station, I ate a egg white + spinach + feta wrap for breakfast.
As soon as I got on the train, I passed out and slept for 2.5 hours.
My husband found it humorous that my face was smashed right up against the table. Obviously, he needed to document it with a couple of photos. He’s so sweet like that. 😉
When I woke up, I snacked on some BBQ-flavored Pop Chips from my BlogHer swag.
Mal and I arrived home around 2:00 pm and grabbed lunch at The Fruit Center at Milton Marketplace. I hit the salad bar and made a HUGE salad. After a rather indulgent week in NYC, my body is craving nutrients and a serious detox. With lunch, I also drank an iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. I’m dragging today.
Then, we drove to my mom’s house to pick up this little guy!!!
Oh, how I missed him so! Reunited at last!
Now, I am sitting by my in-laws pool working away. My inbox is a nightmare and I have so much to do. Looks like vacation is over! 😕
See ya later for dinner! I think we’re firing up the grill! 😀
P.S. Melissa is giving away Peanut Butter Puffins on her blog today. Be sure to check it out!
The inlaws pool looks so tempting right now. Wish I had one to jump into since it is 85 degrees in my house!
That was the best pug smile!
Awe. Murphy looks so happy to see you! 🙂
I just had to laugh at that photo of you with your head smashed against the table. I also get caught sleeping in weird positions…
i noticed you are also a starbucks connoisseur. Do you have a starbucks card? You should get one since you love soy iced coffee and you get free customization with the card. just fyi
A pool sounds great right about now! I think it’s 95* in NC!
How nice to see Murphy’s smiling face! After a vacation of eating not-so-good foods my body craves veggies and fruits also! It feels so good to get back into a routine. Welcome home!
I want to jump in that pool right now. It’s gross outside here. Glad you’re (almost) home!
Doesn’t it feel great to be home? That is how I felt yesterday afternoon. Traveling is a lot of fun but always takes so much out of you. Nothing like your own bed.
Glad you had a safe trip home!! I love blogging outside by my pool…it feels so summery 🙂 Can’t wait to see you in Chicago!!
Looks like someone had a great time! Sleeping like that is always a sign of a good trip! Enjoy your evening with your in-laws and I hope you have a great night rest tonight!
Um, I eat that wrap almost everyday!
Saw your tweet about Murphy.. such a bummer 🙁 but don’t worry – since he hasn’t been at your house, it should be easy to take care of!! Hope you can get in a few relaxing days before HLS!
Aaaahhhh salad detox! I do it all the time after long weekends/vacations. It’s like a fresh start to the week…
i know what you mean about craving nutrients…i was that way last weekend! feels good to be eating well again!
Oh my goodness! So jealous of the pool right now! Yeah, I haven’t had internet at my house, and my box is getting out of control even with daily trips to Starbucks!
that is so funny,you must of been super tired!
Aw, I’ve missed Murphy as well. Don’t ya just love how work gets so out of hand during a vacation. I wish it also too some time off.
If there’s ever a reason to have a lot of stuff to carry, it’s awesome swag 😉
Lots of traveling! I bet it feels good to be “home”. I LOVE PB Puffins. An all-time favorite.
Ohh I’m sure Murphy missed you all! Can’t believe you’ve got HLS summit this weekend too!
You’re a busy lady! I am exhausted just thinking about it. I hope you get to rest a bit before taking off yet again.
And Murhpy always makes me smile! I’m happy to see him too! 🙂
Don’t ya love when people take pictures of you when you’re sleeping? I have a real beauty of my with my head tilted back and my mouth wide open. That was back when I was in junior high, but still! haha
FYI, if you join Barbara’s facebook page this week you you can get Puffin’s buy one get one free!
I wish I could sleep on transportation devices… I’m cursed with travel insomnia!
Good luck getting through your inbox… I get totally stressed when mine is overflowing. I have to categorize everything into folders and deal with it systematically or else I just go nuts! (Type A control freak here!)
awww its nice to see Murphy again. Isn’t it nice to be home?
Your in-law’s pool looks so refreshing! I bet you’re tired after the long, exciting weekend you had. Time to gear up for the next one:)
I’m with you – nothing like coming home after some time indulging and partying! But get set for more this weekend at HLS – see you there!
Extra nice photos today!
i love that one photo that looks like the pug is all head. so cute.
that salad looks delicious, too! i think detox sounds like a fab idea. do you do anything special when trying to make up for bad diet?
@Emily @ The Happy Home: Not really. I just get back to my usual routine, drink lots of water, and exercise.
Murphy is so adorable! Who wouldn’t miss that face?
I am all about making it home to sleep in my own bed too. I am also exhausted after conferences. Last month after a 4 day diabetes conference I had to go home an nap for the afternoon 🙂
Your in-laws have a pool? Jealous!
LoL, it sucks to have to detox after a vacation doesn’t it? I know after this happens tho, my body feels so much better. 🙂
I always hated how my parents would take pictures of me completely zonked out in my new pj’s on christmas day.
Welcome back for a few days and then it looks like you are off again.
LOL. My sister never fails to take advantage of me while I’m sleeping. I have the worst sleeping habits and she loves to take photos of me with my head back, mouth open, snoring or something… She says she’s saving them up for my wedding. Oh, god.
Oh, being home after a vacation can be stressful. Rest up tonight!
Sounds like you have had a busy few days – a night in your own bed will probably make you feel like a million bucks!
I love coming home from a trip and seeing my puppies!!! I bet he was excited!
Wish I could make it to lunch tomorrow -thanks for invite. Hope to see you soon 🙂
Haha, I had to laugh at Mal’s pictures of you sleeping. But we all saw what you did for these past few days. You deserved some sleep! lol
Welcome home Tina! Two things: nothing is better than sleeping on the train, and I love Pop Chips. They are the best! 🙂
First time commenter here… Love your blog! I used to spend nearly three hours a day commuting to work on a train. Needless to say I spent my fair share of time sleeping with my head pressed against the window!! Oh the memories…
I can’t wait to hear about your adventures at the Healthy Living Summit! Wish I was going 🙁
How are those Pop Chips? I think about buying them every time I browse the chip aisle.
That pic of Murphy with his tongue sticking out is going RIGHT into my Murphy folder, btw. Glad you had a safe trip home!
lol! Mal is a funny guy!
Awww, I’ve missed Murphy too! It’s funny how much your photos of him brighten me day. He’s so adorbale and crazy-looking at the same time 😀
I love those BBQ Popchips and that salad looks delicious. Glad you’re back, but sorry to hear about Murphy’s fleas. (I read your posts backward.)
