Needless to say that by mid afternoon Sunday I was exhausted! I spent the rest of the day in front of the TV doing nothing! It was glorious... simply glorious!!
I was in CT for the annual Conn Maritime Association's annual shipping conference (CMA's aka country music awards to this geek). I haven't been in several years but was very happy I could make it this year. The event is filled with vendors, technical sessions, networking events and customer dinners.
|I love Peter Thomas Roth products! Huzzah for high end hotel swag!|
Upon arrival the first night I was lucky to attend a customer dinner hosted by our ship manager at the Norwalk Aquarium! What a great idea to host a dinner AMONG the sea!
I was also that "special" girl who managed to take a shot of my feet while trying to walk, talk and hold my cocktail glass.... I am so smooth!
I felt a little (stress little) bad to be eating delicious crab cakes and tuna tartare while fishies swam around me...

I failed royally at capturing my looks for the week. I assure you I rocked suit coats, black dresses and even heels one day! I thought I managed to pull off young and professional pretty well. Classy but not stuffy... Thank you H&M!
The week was filled with networking cocktail hours, long technical sessions, more coffee than I care to admit and a private dinner at Morton's hosted by a vendor (that was AWESOME! I felt so fancy!!)
By Wednesday night I was super excited to have a long yoga session in my room thanks to my iPod touch and a yummy dinner thanks to room service!
