    Sounds like you have been busy busy! Yeah shows are usually long and hurt the feet- hopefully you have comfy shoes!

    Standing on your feet all day is exhausting — during the year I taught, we weren’t allowed to sit down in our classrooms at all! Ugh! Looks like you’re having an enjoyable trip though. 🙂

    Looks like you have stayed super healthy on your trip- between the sleep and all of the healthy food! Rest up!

    Part of my job is to manage the tradeshow program for my company too! It can be exhausting and the travel can really take it’s toll. Hard to be peppy and friendly to attendees when you’re tired and fee ache!

    I found that a hot bath is the best remedy after a long day on the tradeshow floor! After wine and dinner, of course, LOL 🙂

    I was exhausted just walking around in the trade show we went to, I can only imagine WORKING it! Glad to hear it isn’t as scary as it looks…Im thinking of doing one next year.
    Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Such great eats for a traveling girl! A flooded bathroom sounds like a fun way to start the day too!

    Meghann, you HAVE to go to Pi for dinner before you leave! I’m from St. Louis (actually driving back home tomorrow!), and this is one of our claims to fame. It’s a really good deep dish pizza place (with cornmeal crust), and the restaurant is ecologically sustainable. President Obama chose pizza from Pi instead of classic Chicago deep dish to serve at one of his dinners. Also, make sure you hit up Ted Drewes for frozen custard! Even though it’s cold, I’m sure they’ll be a line!

    That burrito looks delicious! I’m sure all that good food you ate kept you going throughout the day. Good luck with the rest of your booth wrangling 😉

    Man, waking up to the bathroom flood must have been… fun. Way to not let it bring you down at all! 🙂

    That burrito looks completely amazing. And does it seriously say $2.99!? If it does that’s an AWESOME deal! Haha.

    Have a great day! Hope it’s not too crazy!

    Tradeshows are hard work. I have to go to one each year with my company, plus I coordinate them in house. Exhausting.

    Wow, what a day! My college residence was an old hotel and my room’s toilet once overflowed and flooded the bathroom… Not fun 🙁

    I can totally sympathize with the flooding. Our upstairs neighbor flooded her bathroom and it flooded ours as well. Awful.

    I also worked my fair share of trade shows and they are a lot of work!

    That burrito looks awesome; it’s always nice to find cute (healthful) on-the-go foods like that.

    have a great trip girl!!! mmm I love overstuffed burritos, surley fill you up and keep you satisfied for a while!

    be careful of that bathroom floor!!

    Your toilet incident reminds me of something that happened once to me at a hotel – the sink started spewing sewage water from the drain! It was horrible. The hotel was kind enough to quickly move us to a new room.

    It’s too bad the STL weather is so crummy for your trip! Today & tomorrow’s weather here (near freezing, windy & rain) is about as bad as it gets!

    Hi Meghann!

    I love your blog! I have been following it for quite some time now! I cant tell you how much I relate to the whole sitting at a desk all day and having to learn how to really eat and cook for yourself! My friend Katie and I just started a blog and you are a huge inspiration for us! Keep up the good work!

    Isn’t French Onion soup the best?

    You’ve got some willpower avoiding the cheese-y topping though! That’s my favorite part… mmm, melty Gruyere…
