Not a Light Packer

by Meghann on November 4, 2009

Its official – packing light for a weekend is impossible!

Exhibit A:

That is the original pile of everything from my closet that I wanted to bring with me to San Francisco. A bit much, wouldn’t you say?

Exhibit B:

I then tried every outfit on I wanted to pack and coordinated them with shoes and accessories.

Exhibit C:

My FULL suitcase packed with clothes and shoes thus far – still missing toiletries and hair supplies.

I know its only a three day trip, but with 2 outfit changes per day PLUS running clothes PLUS shoes it really adds up. Good thing I had already planned to check my bag.

I need to learn how to be a light packer, if I would just working with a carry on I’m not sure what I would have done. lol

Are you a light packer? How do you do it? Teach me your ways! lol

I may be awful at packing clothes for a weekend away, but I am excellent at packing snacks for my work day. My afternoon snack was particularly tasty today.

A brown rice cake topped with barney butter and 1/2 a pear.

Carbs + Protein + Sugars = Perfection. Yum!

It was another lazy dinner, but this time at least the oven was involved.

I started by roasting Butternut Squash and Brussel Sprouts in the oven at 420 for 15 minutes.

While the veggies were roasting in the oven I heated up a dozen Scallops with a bottled curry sauce on the stove top, as well as a 1/4 cup of Whole Wheat Cous Cous.

I piled everything on top of each other and feasted on my delicious hot meal.

For dessert I was craving chocolate – Amanda’s Brownie did the trick.

I love how freezer friendly her brownies are. This still tasted amazing. 🙂

Now if you will excuse me, my suit case awaits! I still have to pack the rest of my chargers and running gear.

In the mean time don’t forget to get your daily votes in for the Sam-e Good Mood Blogger! Only a few more days. 🙂

Busy Working Bee

I sound like a broken record lately mentioning how busy work is, but it truly has been very busy. My morning was packed with research, data pulling, and meetings. Thursday afternoon can not come soon enough! Around 10:30 I broke into a Chocolate Chip Trail Mix Pure Bar to snack on. I wasn’t sure if more »
