Signing Off

It's been a long couple of weeks and days and today is my last crazy one.  Tomorrow at 9:40am the plane is leaving and I will be on it.  So between now and then, I am only one person and can only do so much. 

We had one of my work dinners last night when I got in from Tennessee.  We ate at Bernardin's uptown Charlotte (where Ratcliff on the Green used to be).  Highly recommend.  Then we went over to the Ritz and had an after dinner drink at Urban Sip on their 15th floor.  It's so quiet and has great views.  Thank you to our architect for taking us out for a big night on the town!

I was up til 1:30am cleaning (possibly under the influence -- I do my best work this way haha!) for the DNC so I could pretend I had a "professional" come clean it.  Evidently that was required but you're joking if I was going to pay for my place to be cleaned only for someone to come dirty up it up and have to do it all over again.  So I cleaned it top to bottom. 

Got up at 5:45am to run.  That was necessary for my sanity and girl catch up time with Tara and Kristen before we all take off on trips.  Kristen is going to Jacksonville, FL.  Tara is going to Costa Rica with Kristen's sister.  I'm going to Maryland to my parents home with Kevin and his parents.  It will be a fun trip!

Hope you all enjoy your long Labor Day weekend.  Here's to wearing white pants every day til next Tuesday!

Oh..and I do some of my best work under the influence too! Hysterical!

I love that "cleaning under the influence" it is SO true! Especially organizing stuff too! I had no idea there was a wine bar at the top of the ritz - I am always saying how charlotte is lacking in the nice lounge department! Any other rooftop bar/lounge places?

I am scared about traveling back home to charlotte on tuesday - I think the airport is going to be INSANE!

Hope you have a great trip to MD! :)
