Hey! Today was LONG, but I guess the bright side was that it was different than the average work day. Plus I got to be a lot more active and walk around more than usual.
Breakfast this morning was a bagel with cream cheese.
If that seems unhealthy to you, buckle your seat belts – it’s going to be a bumpy ride I had several cups of coffee over the course of the day, which will probably result in me not being able to sleep tonight. Oops.
Me and my coworker split a brownie mid morning. They were at the booth right across from hours and the girl’s manning it kept asking us to take one like every 5 minutes. It was only a matter of time.
The rest of the pics are iPhone pics, so I apologize in advance. This trade show was pretty well set up and I think we made some good contacts. After a lot of schmoozing everyone filed into the keynote luncheon.
We started out with a salad.
I was planning to just make due with the meal and only eat the sides, but it was just a big ‘ol piece of chicken and some undercooked veggies.
The chicken actually looked pretty good, but I decided to go ahead and check to see if there was a vegetarian option. They did, and surprise, it was pasta.
This was actually incredible. I had tortellini at a fancy restaurant a couple days ago and it was terrible, but this was delicious. I was glad I asked for the veg plate.
But the food didn’t stop there my friends. I did balance it out by drinking several glasses of water over the course of they day.
At 4 p.m. there was an Exhibitor’s Reception with snacks and cocktails. I was going to skip it, but they had fruit! I had a small plate.
I had fruit, two cheese cubes and a piece of bruschetta. One of the older gentleman at the booth next door bought me a glass of wine.
I politely drank about 1/3 of the glass while we discussed college football. I can never pass up free wine or football banter.
When I got the cue that it was okay to go I was out like a flash! Overall it was an okay day, but there’s only so much rubbing elbows a gal can take in one day.
I have a lot to accomplish tonight! Gotta catch up on my reader, work out, and clean the apartment. I better hop to it!
Have a good night!
