I road-tripped down with my friend Laura from Kenosha, WI and Alyssa from the outer Chicago suburbs, and we got to Huntsville on Tuesday. The hotel was super nice (a Westin, I wanted to take up residence in the shower, heaven) and we got to enjoy the evening event for early arrivals, a "Tweet Up Tap Room Takeover" at a local brewery with food provided by two food trucks. The watermelon wheat beer was incredible and I have a grilled "cheese"cake sandwich-2 slices of buttered poundcake with a slice of cheesecake in between. It was just as insanely good as it sounds.
The next morning I had a fabulous run with my friend Jessie from Arkansas and then a breakfast to write home about:
We ate under the Saturn V rocket and then were set loose to explore. Here's a peek at Space Camp (which they have for grown-ups, if you missed your chance as a kind like I did):
The Space and Rocket Center had a DaVinci exhibit going on, where they actually built the devices that DaVinci sketched, like his precursor to modern helicopters:
The next day was a full day of educational sessions, then another reception at a very cool outdoor venue that evening. Friday morning I had a phenomenal run in the workout room, then more educational sessions. We left around lunchtime and road-tripped back to Cape, where Laura and Alyssa dropped me off and headed on their way north! Ryan had done all the grocery shopping and had dinner ready, which was a really nice welcome home. I spent the weekend doing laundry, getting in some good quality time with Ryan and my family and loving on my dogs. Now I'm working to take all of the knowledge I collected and apply it to the social media I manage at work.
Huntsville seemed like a really fun place, and its only 5.5 hours from Cape...good to know if Ryan and I can ever get away for a weekend trip!
Everything has been pretty low-key since that trip, so nothing exciting to report other than everyday things! What have you been up to lately? Have you gone anywhere fun for work?
