Breathe in. Breathe out.

That’s what I need to keep repeating to myself.

It’s been a long day and something tells me the next few days are going to be just as long. Tomorrow is when all the real fun begins, right? πŸ˜‰

I ate my snack of yogurt and granola while standing up this afternoon.


It’s amazing how many last minutes details came up, well, last minute. I was running last minute errands all over Orlando this afternoon and didn’t get home until late. Once home I still had to finish laundry, pack, and halfway attempt to clean out my apartment.

Despite all that I still managed to piece together a halfway decent dinner.


I reheated some frozen Leek & Potato Soup that I served on a bed of kale (the last fresh veggie in my fridge) and topped with left over Easter Pork.


Bulking up the soup with the kale and pork not only allowed me to use up the remaining food in my fridge, but it also gave the soup a whole new depth of flavor and textures. It was like I was eating a whole new soup. πŸ™‚


On the side I had the last piece of a batch of cornbread I had froze last month.


Dessert was my Easter Bunny’s shoulder and a couple pieces of dried kiwi.


I have a very early flight out of here tomorrow morning, so the next time you hear from me I will be in New Orleans!

By the way…

Katy put together an awesome #fitblog chat via twitter tonight! A big ‘Hey!’ to all that participated. If you would like to be a part of the conversation next time see Katy’s blog for details!

It seems like business and stress comes along all at once sometimes. I hope things go well for you for the next few days!

Good luck with the trip girl! I can imagine how stressful it must be but you will have fun in New Orleans!

The stress is always the worst leading up to an event. You know it will be fine once it starts:)

Have a fun trip! Breathe in, breathe out, and enjoy πŸ™‚

Breathe in, Breathe out! You’ve done all you can and you will rock it out!

I was so confused by the #fitblog chat but I’m still learning twitter.

Here’s hoping for better days ahead!

Great job using up your produce before you leave town! Now, just remember to go grocery shopping when you get back. We’ve been back a week and I still haven’t gone – it’s miserable!

14 runtobake April 7, 2010 at 1:08 am

Have a good time in New Orleans – I hope you get to see the city and not just work! Best way to see the city is on foot!

15 Sam @ Snowflakes and Sunshine April 7, 2010 at 1:42 am

Good luck! πŸ™‚

16 Diana April 7, 2010 at 2:54 am

I couldn’t participate in the chat.. different timezones. Oh well!
Hmmm cornbread πŸ™‚

17 britchickruns April 7, 2010 at 3:15 am

I think your meal looks pretty darn gourmet if I say so myself πŸ˜€
I’m so annoyed I don’t have Twitter now :/

18 Rachel April 7, 2010 at 6:03 am

Good morning Meghann! I hope you were able to get some rest last night. Have safe travels this morning and good luck with the conference!
I bet the soup was delicious with the leftover ham. Great flavor combo!

19 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday April 7, 2010 at 8:19 am

I now have Bush’s Machine Head stuck in my head.

20 Emily April 7, 2010 at 8:21 am

Sounds like a lot of work stress! Keep breathing and hold it together. You’ll do great!

Thanks so much for the link to Katy’s site. I heard about fitblog this morning but I had no idea where to find out more, so thanks πŸ™‚

22 Jessica April 7, 2010 at 8:41 am

breath. It’s something I tell myself daily. The screen of my cell phone says, “just breath”. Sometimes life gets so hectic and everything moves so fast, I like having the daily reminder to slow down.

23 Mara @ What's For Dinner? April 7, 2010 at 8:54 am

Yes. Breathe.
You’ll be great!!

24 runningwithsass April 7, 2010 at 9:18 am

25 Kelly April 7, 2010 at 9:29 am

Good luck with the trip, you’re almost done! Fitblog was intense, I had such a hard time keeping up!

26 Emilyeatsclean April 7, 2010 at 9:31 am

It will allllll get done… always does!!!! πŸ™‚ Have a good flight! Oh and I got a laugh out of you eating the Easter bunny’s ‘shoulder’…….hehe!


27 Laura Georgina April 7, 2010 at 9:45 am

Adorable plates! I see some dish-shopping in my future (all justifiable blog expenditure, right?)

LOVED that chat! She did good work putting it together/monitoring it. πŸ™‚
