Post Vacay Blues

7.16.2014
I've decided coming home from vacation is absolutely 101% worse than preparing to leave for one. 

1. My house is a total disaster. Piles of unclean clothes, piles of washed clothes, half emptied suitcases, an empty kitchen, crap everywhere. #thelistgoeson

2. My sleep schedule. It's bonkers. After traveling about 27 hours Sunday - Monday with no sleep, Jon and I crashed around 3pm Monday and awoke around 11pm groggy, but awake. We watched t.v. together in the living room until about 3am then went back to bed and woke at 8am Tuesday. I tell ya, my brain wants to be awake when it's time to sleep. #stupidtimechange

3. Getting back in the gym. I have a secret - I gained 7lbs on our cruise. That's a pound a day, but I'm pretty proud because the trainer in the gym said the average person gained 2lbs a day on a cruise. So I'm calling it a win.
 
4. Coming back to work and being behind. I had 145 voice-mails, 202 emails in just one email account and 97 open orders to come home to and that's just business, not blog related. Needless to say I had to remind myself to "breath" for about, oh 9 hours. Wine helps too.
 
5. Editing 740 photos. And when I say editing I mean sifting through 740 photos because the task daunts me.
 
Here are some teasers until I get around to editing more! XO

  8. 1. These photos look so dreamy and make me yearn even more for fall weather and lots of cozy layers!

    2. I lol'ed at the part about gaining weight, not because it's funny but because we all know it's real. Dang that life getting in the way of our workout routine! Glad you're counting it as a win!

    3. Wine it up, lady! Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures :)

  12. These pictures are SO BEAUTIFUL! And thank you for your brutal honesty in the beginning. Makes me feel better about the bomb that went off in my apartment, my email box, my waistline, etc since I've been away.

  14. Coming home from vacation does suck. When we were kids, my family went to an island in the great lakes every summer, and my mom called the coming-home phenomenon "Post Island Depression". It's real.

  17. Don't you hate it! I feel 100% the same. I am actually heading out to the east coast this weekend for a quick weekend vacay and I am dreading coming home already and I haven't even left :) On a different note, these photos are just too cute for words!

  24. Studies have been done and it is proven that people get super depressed after vacation

  27. At least the pictures are gorgeous! I love the one of you with the blanket.
    And, holy cow- two pounds a day on a cruise?! I had no idea! I can definitely see why, though; the food is usually amazing and abundant!

  28. Oh my gosh what a beautiful state!! I can't wait to see more. And for the sleep schedules? Take melatonin - you can get it OTC at pharmacies in the States. You take it about a half hour before you want to go to bed and it helps your body adjust to the right time zone. Your body produces it already and it naturally spikes in your blood level when you're going to bed - taking it helps you deal with jet lag, time zone change, etc. (Pilots and shift workers tend to take it a lot because their sleep patterns are always out of whack!)

  34. I am so jealous of this trip!! It looks amazing! There really is nothing worse than coming home from a vacation... especially one with a time change. We were thrown off for about a week after returning from Hawaii last summer!
