Traveling always makes my mind wander. Find out how I was feeling in this post. This king sized bed was definitely the peak of my week. The view from my room! *Heart eyes* We were technically “on-call” as soon as our flight landed in MCO, but our boss told us we probably wouldn’t be needed and to take full-advantage of our only “free” day. Naturally (before unpacking), we all headed straight to the poolside bar (rules of traveling: start your trip off right by getting the most tropical cocktail, ASAP) and spent the rest of the afternoon basking in the sun. Note: it was barely over 60 degrees and the Hilton staff were all dressed in pants and long-sleeved shirts… As I was soaking up the rays (UV Index of probably, like, 4), I saw a girl with KKG letters walk by. She was so sweet and Instagrammed this picture of us! Even though I’m Kappa Kappa Graduated… I still LOVE meeting sisters. The things I’d do to be a Freshman again…*sigh* That night we all went to Downtown Orlando and went to a sports bar called Harry Buffalo. We all got a kick out of our server’s name… Reality set in when we had to be up at the crack of dawn for training the next day. One of the days I got up at 5AM after being out ’til midnight the night before! (That was my pit of the week. I’m a girl that NEEDS her beauty sleep. A little extra under-eye concealer was definitely necessary that day.) The Cadets all sent selfies in our group chat to make sure we were awake and ready to go! #IWOKEUPLIKETHIS We had about a mile walk to-and-from work. It was one of my favorite parts of the day because it was the only time we were outside. It’s rare that I’m awake to see the sunrise. I thought this was such a pretty view! For lunch that day a few of us ventured out to Chick-Fil-A and ate it by this pond outside of the convention center. If you go down South and don’t stop at Chick-Fil-A, you’re doing it wrong… I MADE WORK FRIENDZ. The Cadets (my work team) on the first day of the show! Don’t mind my heinous clogs. We luv our red vests… We accidentally went to a Drag Show one night for dinner… That’s normal, right? I consider myself somewhat of a foodie. Orlando is not the place for foodies. Too many chain restaurants. Too many burgers. Too many fries (I didn’t even know that was possible). I WAS CRAVING SCALLOPS. We went to Spencer’s, a nice restaurant in our hotel, specifically because they had scallops on the menu. And then I ordered the duck instead…Regardless, it was SO NICE to not eat bar food. & How funny is it that all of us were sporting some kind of print? We didn’t even plan it! At work, we would end up walking an average of 10 miles a day. On our last night, our feet were THROBBING (I had *not exaggerating* 4 blisters on my feet). We could not fathom walking back to the hotel… So we took a peddy cab! The PGA Merchandise Show was amazing! My fav part was seeing the new apparel for brands like: vineyard vines, Peter Millar, Bobby Jones, Brooks Brothers, Sail to Sable, and Gretchen Scott. I’m also guilty of stalking Bubba & Jordan Speith around the show floor! Shh. I’m a sucker for punny marketing. By the time the show ended, I was exhausted. But I still felt depressed at the thought of leaving. It was partially because I was headed home to below freezing temperatures and SNOW in the forecast (Our fight actually got cancelled right as we got to the airport and I was beaming inside at the thought of staying an extra day or two..
