Picture Perfect Pool Day

by Meghann on February 19, 2011

Dear Florida Sun,

I missed you.


Please stay sunny and seventy-five degrees all year around. Never get ridiculously hot or freezing cold. Today you were perfect.


Love, Meghann


I spent two hours by the pool today reading, napping, and just soaking it all in. I didn’t sweat, nor did I feel chilled – it was truly the perfect pool day!

I only came inside because my stomach started to grumble.


I had this brilliant idea for the leftover pretzels from yesterday – turn them into delicious sandwiches! ๐Ÿ˜‰


And delicious was right. I sliced the cinnamon sugar pretzel right down the middle to form a ‘bun’ then filled it with Naturally Nutty Vanilla Peanut Butter, Apple Slices, Pumpkin Butter, and Raisins.


Oh, yes, it was pretty epic. ๐Ÿ˜‰


On the side I had the remaining apple slices


and leftover brussels sprouts from last night’s dinner


The deal was I got to play by the pool in the morning IF I packed this afternoon. *gulp* Here goes nothing!

Fun fact: yesterday it was 50* out in New York and people were walking around in shorts and flip flops. It’s now back down to freezing & snowing. It was such a tease for spring.

I have massive amounts of packing to do as well. And it has to go to 3 different places so having a strategy is key. Good luck!
