Jackson – My New Love

by Meghann on June 4, 2010

Say Hello to my little friend.


His name is Jackson and we’re officially BFFs.


Don’t let that face fool you – he loves me! ๐Ÿ™‚


I hope Maddie doesn’t get jealous. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My flight to DC was surprisingly uneventful. I was just getting into the groove of answering e-mails when we began our final descent into Dulles. Shortest flight ever if you ask me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Which was great because I had places to go and people to see! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Specifically these people to see!


Leslie is from the DC area originally and is playing the gracious host to Ashley and I for the evening.

I’ve met Leslie once before at the Disney Princess Half meet up in March and I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley when I was in NYC last February.

I <3 Blogger Friends.


Jackson belongs to Leslie and I’ve already warned her that I plan on stealing him and taking him back home with me . ๐Ÿ™‚


My flight landed right around dinner time and the lovely Leslie and Ashley were waiting for me with hungry bellies and big smiles. ๐Ÿ™‚ We debated for a bit on where to eat, but in the end decided Thai was the way to go.




We were all STARVING by the time we were seated and decided to start with the Cee Soft Roll appetizer.


The rolls were stuffed with chinese sausage, egg, cucumber, bean sprout, and crabmeat.


Yum! All three of us devoured the plate of rolls. The sauce was slightly sweet and the filling was light and refreshing. It was the perfect light appetizer.

For our entrees we chose the Curry Vegetables


And the Shrimp Pad Tai.


Each dish was very spicy, but had great flavor to it. I loved how the curry was overflowing with vegetables – my favorite being the mushrooms. ๐Ÿ™‚


Dinner was great. Good food and good company, what more could a girl ask for?




Leslie’s Mom had CUPCAKES waiting for us after dinner!


Funfetti Cupcakes to be exact!


I had one and it was delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚


Post cupcake blogger party in Leslie’s room! ๐Ÿ™‚


Tomorrow is the big day!

Ashley, Leslie, and I are running the Northface Marathon Relay bright and early tomorrow morning with a few blogging friends.


Scratch that, it’s not tomorrow morning, it starts at 11:00 – I consider that more early afternoon. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s going to be interesting not having to be up before the crack of dawn for a race! I’ll actually be able to sleep in!


There are three teams of bloggers running tomorrow. We all set this up a couple of months ago and I can’t wait to finally meet all my teammates in person.

My team is Run Bloggers Run and basically we rock.


Go Team Go!

Apparently there is an infestation of copperhead snakes in the area and we’ve been warned to ‘just keep running.’ Yikes! From alligators to snakes apparently I like to race on the edge of danger. Let’s hope all the other runners scare them off before it’s my turn.

Finger’s crossed!

Good Night everyone!

Confession: I only fly AirTran now because I know they have onboard WiFi. Yes, I paid $9.95 for internet for a 2 hour flight – don’t judge. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Worth every penny if you ask me! After the little glitch was fixed in the program I was trying to send my e-blasts out of, the rest more ยป

Peanut Powder

What do you make when you are trying to eat up the last of the berries and yogurt in your fridge? Create a parfait of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ There are something about parfaits that just scream high class to me? Maybe because they’re so pretty that they scream fancy schmancy? Either way they are easy to more ยป
