This weekend was spent in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have never been to Raleigh, and I must say I was impressed. Mutual Drug Company had their Trade Show there. We left early Saturday morning-not too bad of a drive maybe 4 hrs or less.
The Marriott was very nice when we asked if our rooms were available, I mean, we only wanted to check in 5 hrs ahead of normal check-in time. To our surprise, the rooms were available, so we were able to unload our vehicle and freshen up before hitting the trade show. Thanks Marriott for such great hospitality!!
Last year, daughter was not able to attend the Trade Show, so she was excited. Now hub nor I are pharmacist, so we mainly enter all the free give-a-ways and just roam the trade show floor. Daughter, on the other hand, went down every alise, talking to all the vendors (around 400), asking too many questions, and learning a lot of new information. Daughter did win a few give-a-ways! Not hub and I who had registered like 500 times, but daughter who only registered once!
After dinner, we listened to music by the Tams. I love the Tams music and so glad Mutual had gotten them. Later, we took a ride through Raleigh taking in the sights. Then we sat outside the Marriott and rocked in rocking chairs and chatted with one another and laughed till we all were giggly tired.
Sunday was much the same -talking to vendors but I participated in the Silent Auction and won!! Yeah for me. It was mainly for hubs-something he wanted but was afraid to bid- so I did! Hubs was feeling a little down-woke up with a sore throat but I said-Hey-we are at a drug show there has to be someone with a sore throat relief around! Right?
Hub still isn't feeling the best this morning...hopefully the antibiotic he is on will kick in and make him feel better soon!
Have a great week! and a little music to start your week...
