Nearly every time I am home, the trip revolves around food. After having Casey’s friends in town last week and being home this week, I am going to need a major diet overhaul to start right along with my new job.
Yesterday we started the day with Surf Bagel where I had a Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese on a Whole Wheat Everything bagel. It is an absolute staple of food from home and NEVER disappoints!
After putting myself in a sufficient food coma, my mom and I went around to all the local shops that I love and don’t have in Charleston. I ended up with two new dresses that I am in love with. I almost pulled the trigger on a new bathing suit as well, it was so gorgeous but $128 for a suit is more that I can stomach.
Once we were sufficiently worn out with that we came home in time for me to take my little brother to his Crossfit where I stayed and went for a run. I had 4×800’s on the agenda and they were TOUGH. It was hot, humid and there was no breeze but I muddled through. By the end I was totally spent and downed two full water bottles. I am sure I was dehydrated before even setting out of the run. Being home has gotten me completely out of any routine to keep up with water intake.
This morning I got my run in early, an easy three miler before going to lunch with my grandparents at Agave. This place has the best Mexican food I have ever had. I got a Farmer’s Market Quesadilla and it was amazing. It was so fresh and delicious.
Post lunch, I was off to finally get my hair cut. I absolutely love getting my hair cut (mostly the head massage with the cucumbers on my eyes). I needed it so desperately, it had been since December! I have been going to the same girl for 15 years but I guess it is probably time to give up and find someone in Charleston. My stylist has just gone out on her own and opened a new salon called Lady and Mane and it was so beautifully finished with such perfect touches.
Luckily I had planned to go to dinner with my friend Megan tonight so I actually got to show off my lovely styled hair before running and having to wash it, ruining her handiwork. We went to Stingray and had a feel rolls of sushi and had a chance to catch up on life and what not. It crazy how much can change so fast and how much stays the same really. Every time I come home I am reminded of that.
I have one more day left here before heading home (to Charleston) and we have a jam packed day ahead of us tomorrow. Off to bed for me!
