Sorry for my extended absence! I’ve been crazy busy with work and wedding tasks. Last Wednesday we spent the day visiting our client in the mountains to review our plans for their May media trip. It was so beautiful up there, even though many of the trees and flowers hadn’t bloomed yet. When we go back in 3 weeks, I’m sure everything will be out and the whole place will be so colorful.

While we were there, the GM decided to show us a place we could use for a post-hike picnic. Unfortunately it was up a trail into the woods, and my boss and I were in heels. We ended up hiking into the woods for 45 minutes in our work clothes and nice shoes. Let me tell you, by the end of our adventure my ankles were so sore from balancing on rocks and uneven surfaces for so long. My feet were also wet and muddy since my shoes weren’t closed. At least they came clean, and I didn’t fall and break my neck!

Friday-Monday I was at our beach client for our media trip. It was awesome! The writers were great, and it was nice to finally put a face to the voices I have been dealing with for so long. While we were there, we got to experience the property to the fullest. There was so much food all the time, and it was so delicious. I’m surprised I didn’t gain any weight while we were there!

We had beachside bonfires with s’mores, went horseback riding, got massages, had a putting competition and attempted to go kayaking. We got rained out, but were going to do it anyway until we found out there was lightning in the area. So we had to pack it up. The thing that sucked the most was once we got back to the resort, the sun was shining again and it was beautiful out.

On our last night there, we had an amazing dinner in the lodge by the equestrian center. The highlight of the evening, besides the food, was the Wii. Who would have thought that a bunch of adults ranging from their mid-twenties (me) to their 80s would have such a good time with a video game. It was entertaining how into Wii bowling everyone got.

By the time we got back home on Monday, I was wiped out. I am not used to being awake at 7:00 a.m. on the weekends.
