Back on the East Coast

by Meghann on February 7, 2009

I’m back in Florida! I got off the plane and was welcomed by a rush of humidity and 72 degree temps… it’s good to be home. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a very early start this morning. I was up at 4:00 and dug into my breakfast around 4:30 in the car.

I had some Vanilla Oikos mixed with Peanut Butter Puffins and Strawberries. This was a very difficult mix to eat in the car in the dark in a small cup.

While waiting to board I had a 1/4 of my Dad’s Ham and Egg Crossiant and a handful of Grapes.

When we made it to the airport I picked up a Vegetable Sandwich from the Paradise Cafe to have on the plane.

I think I ate this about 10:00 Colorado time and 12:00 Florida time, as I was trying to get back on Florida eating time schedule.

The sammie was great and came with an Apple on the side.

It also came with a Chocolate Chip Cookie that I split with my Aunt.

My Aunt was my travel buddy on the plane.

When we made it back to Florida it was about 2:10 local time and my parents were hungry from not eating anything on the plane. After a trip to Publix, somehow I ended up with my second lunch of the day. I’m telling you traveling really messes up my eating schedule.

I had Veggie Spring Rolls and a single Chicken Tender.

I was told to pick up something quick and easy for dinner tonight while I was at the store so I picked up some pizza dough and toppings.

I made a personal pizza using Publix’s pre-made Pizza Dough which I topped with Marinara Sauce, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Ham, Carrots, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese.

It was really yummy, but I think I was still full from my second lunch so I only ate half of the personal pizza.

You should see the Meat Extravaganza pizza my little brother made.

This one has Ham, Sausage, Bacon, Pepperoni, Peppers, Mushrooms, Mozzarella, and Goat Cheese.

After dinner I my Aunt and Cousin Angela at the movie theater to see He’s Just Not That Into You. If you’re a single girl I HIGHLY suggest you see this movie!! As corny as it sounds it gives me hope that one day I can be the exception to the rule (see the movie if you don’t get what I mean).

When I got home I broke out the new Ice Cream I picked up.

I had a small bowl.. I wonder how long I can get away with saying it’s my birthday I get to indulge?

It was GOOD!! it made me excited for the GIrl Scout Cookies I know are already starting to pop up outside grocery stores this month. ๐Ÿ™‚

T-Minus less then 2 hours until I turn 24!!!! I can’t believe it! I LOVE birthdays! I love the cake, I love the extra attention, I love presents, but most of all I love celebrating with people I love! Tomorrow will be a low key day with big plans for dinner in the early evening. I can’t wait!

When’s your birthday? What’s your favorite part of birthdays?

June 8th. I turn 25 this year…so so scary!

I am very jealous of your Colorado trip. I was lucky enough to go to Breck during Spring Break in HS but I haven’t been since I was 17. I miss it.

June 19th .. I’m turning 20!

I’m glad you had so much fun on your trip! It’s great how your family is so close knit!

Happy early birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

My birthday is in August, and I LOVE celebrating! Brent and I have birthdays 3 days apart, so it’s been fun to celebrate together the past 4 years. Enjoy yours tomorrow!!! Traveling totally messes my eating and sleeping schedule up.

I’m so glad you got back safely! I was up at 4 this morning as well to catch my flight back to Denver. If only we could have magically swapped locations.
Anyway, I was thinking about you and how the big 24 is tomorrow. I hope you have an incredible birthday! It’s been a pretty big week for ya, so this should cap it off nicely. I can’t wait to see all the fun!
Huge Hugs!

Glad you made it home safely. Happy early birthday Meghann! My birthday is January 2, and I love getting phone calls and text messages from everyone with birthday wishes.

8 Shelby February 7, 2009 at 11:30 pm

I want to see that movie so bad!!! Maybe I will go tomorrow.

Love the breakfast- too bad you had to eat it on the go. But yay for warm weather!

9 jenngirl February 7, 2009 at 11:46 pm

Welcome home!! I saw that movie yesterday and I do know what you mean!! It was such a great movie, I loved it ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy early birthday!! Mine’s May 5th, Cinco de Mayo…fun right? I too love being with the people I love, maybe going out to a fun meal and just enjoying the day.

10 Maggie February 7, 2009 at 11:48 pm

happy early birthday! traveling messes up my eating too. you and your aunt look really similar btw – it’s cute!

11 Elina February 7, 2009 at 11:55 pm

They have a paradise bakery in the mall where I work and their chocolate chip cookies are the best! I used to be a brownies girl but their cookies definitely make me crave cookies like crazy. Oh man, now I want one! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Happy early birthday. Enjoy tomorrow! My birthday is in May but I’m ok with having a few months until I get a year older ๐Ÿ™‚

12 Claire February 7, 2009 at 11:57 pm

Mine is TODAY! I’m exactly 2 years and one day older than you. Wow! My favorite part are the phone calls from friends and family (and the cards!). I didn’t do anything today b/c I couldn’t find anyone available to celebrate with me…boo! I guess I celebrated yesterday by spending time with my friend and her brand new baby…so fun! Happy birthday tomorrow!!!

13 Lindsey (Mrs. LC) February 8, 2009 at 12:01 am

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! YAY!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I stayed up past my bedtime just to comment happy birthday to you. (just kidding, I just saw the clock and thought of you and your birthday!) Can’t wait to see you later!

14 Hallie February 8, 2009 at 12:35 am

Happy Birthday!! It’s past midnight your time so I can say it.

That is my FAVORITE ice cream! It’s dangerous…

I love my birthday…especially all the Happy B-day texts, Facebook messages, etc., from my friends. And I adhere to the rule that calories on your birthday don’t count ๐Ÿ™‚

15 HangryPants February 8, 2009 at 1:24 am

Happy Birthday Sweetie!!!

June 24th. My favorite part is the family party/cook-out w/ ice cream cake.

Have a wonderful 24th birthday! I wish I was in Florida to invite myself to and attend your birthday dinner.

16 Mica February 8, 2009 at 1:58 am

Happy early birthday! Glad you are back safely.

17 sarahannmatheny February 8, 2009 at 3:18 am

Oh I get it now…you are one of those people that takes a whole week to celebrate their birthday–so am I!

I can’t believe you are only going to be 24! You are mature beyond your years…or at least more mature than me ๐Ÿ˜‰

My b-day is May 2nd. I love getting to choose everything we do on that day guilt free!

18 snackface February 8, 2009 at 3:20 am

Omg happy early birthday!!! And happy safe return home!

My bday is Nov. 18 and this past one was my 21st! That was certainly a birthday week. I had an absolutely amazing time (all times I went out). I also met my boyfriend on my bday (sober, I swear).

Have an amazing birthday girl!

19 Lora February 8, 2009 at 3:22 am

happy bday! i am turning 22 tomorrow and seeing that movie too with my girlfriends for the birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

20 Sammie February 8, 2009 at 5:53 am

Sunday is Charlie’s birthday too – he’s turning 39.
Mine is August 15th. I think that the best part about your birhtday is getting a little extra special treatment.
Happy Birthday Meghann!!!
