Back to Reality

Hello, friends! I didn’t have any intentions of abandoning blogging last week, but it looks like that’s what happened! It’s for good reason, though – I was in Charleston celebrating the wedding of my dear friend, Lindsay!

The gorgeous wedding took place at the Citadel, and I had the honor of sharing the title of co-MOH with Lindsay’s sister and my other dearest, oldest friend Whitney!

I was lucky enough to spend several days with the bride, Whitney, and our families – there was a lot going on, but it was a fabulous time. I could not be happier or more excited for Lindsay. Marriage is awesome, and I know her and Tyler will totally love it :)

I wish I had more pictures to share with you, but whenever I’m with Whitney, the queen of taking pictures, I fail to document anything. If anything super important surfaces in the next few days, I’ll be SURE to let you know ;)

Now we’re back to reality, and although I’m absolutely sleep deprived (I don’t sleep well in beds that aren’t my own!) I’m not totally dragging because this week promises two and a half days of work.

Speaking of – how is Thanksgiving really on Thursday?! My mind is blown.

Let’s chat – Who’s hosting your Thanksgiving meal this year? My mother-in-law is doing it yet again. Thank GOD – she’s awesome at it. 

Where in the World is Colleen SanDiego?

- Cory and I have been in Charleston, South Carolina since Tuesday. (If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know that, but it’s so weird not mentioning it on the blog!) We’re here to celebrate the wedding of my best/oldest/pseduo-sister friend, Lindsay on Saturday!!

She’s a gem.

- Working “remotely” is super challenging. Kudos to those of you who work at home and consistently get shit done. Being in a hotel room is slightly easier than being at home, but it’s so difficult to focus when I’m alone and in yoga pants. Does that make sense? Thank GOD I’m working on interesting stuff, or all would be lost.

- Since we’re here early for the wedding celebrations (Cory + I are both working during the day) I’m trying not to throw my normal habits out the window just yet…

- …But that’s hard as hell to do when the hotel’s “fitness center” consists of an ancient stationary bike and an elliptical on it’s last leg. Where are the weights, people?! A huge thanks to Erica for suggesting yesterday’s in-room workout. It kicked.my.ass.

Click here for the work out. If you dare.

- I’m the worst co-pilot. I’m like an infant in the fact that I fall asleep after 30 minutes in the car. Cory thinks it’s HILARIOUS to document this every time it happens.

- I’m still looking for hairspiration pictures for Saturday’s wedding. Thus far, My Google image searches (short hair up do) have not yielded the best results.

If you’ve had short hair in any sort of “up-do” please email me a picture (lunchboxdiaries[at]gmail[dot]com). I’ll be forever grateful.

- Today is my Friday! No work and all play is on the books for tomorrow :) Have a great day, my friends!

Let’s chat – Where is the last place you traveled?
