Tour, Day 11 Lexi and I met up for a fun girls-only lunch on Saturday. We decided to go to Weber Grill since the wait at Egg Harbor Cafe was ridiculously long. I was able to get a fairly healthy chicken dish and subbed out the included mashed potatoes for a second vegetable side of green beans. It was tasty and I was happy to eat a lot of vegetables after a fairly unhealthy diet so far on tour!

Tour, Day 4 (Continued) I left Youngstown ahead of the band because I wanted to detour a bit to visit a Trader Joe’s.

Tour, Day 3 Not much happened on day 3 of tour. We worked out, we packed up, we hit the road, we quickly realized that if Domingos was coming with me he absolutely couldn’t be driving because of the flood of work emails and calls and texts (cue a super-fast Chinese fire-drill right before the toll plaza). We checked in to our hotel in Youngstown, Ohio, I practiced, and we left for the concert. Super exciting!
I have every intention of seeing some sites and visiting some museums, but it just so happens that when looking over the first few posts I’m going to write about tour, they’re all about food and alcohol. Anyone who has been following this blog for a while is completely unsurprised, I’m sure!
