Lights, Camera, Walk

by Meghann on December 20, 2011

‘Tis the season for lights!


This evening I met up with my new friend Sarah to gawk over the elegant Christmas decorations that are currently on display in my maybe-someday-if-I-win-the-lottery future neighborhood home of South Tampa.


Can I move here now? Not only are the homes beautiful and everything I could ever hope for in a future home, but the neighborhood is so festive and oozing with holiday cheer this time of year.


We covered about two miles as we twisted and turned through the streets of South Tampa. Not bad for an evening of sight seeing.








Strolling through the holiday lights was the perfect way to spend the evening with a friend. We snuck in some great exercise, saw some pretty sights, and got to enjoy each other’s company at the same time. :)


Do you put up lights for the holidays?

My parents’ go out every year! One day, when I have a house, I’d love to put lights up! For now, a festive wreath on the door will have to do. :)

Since I was meeting Sarah in the Hyde Park area, I decided to sneak down early to get some work done at Sophie’s Cafe.

I ordered my new favorite drink (non-fat latte) and took advantage of the free wifi until my laptop ran out of battery juice.


I snacked on an apple around 4:00ish


And had the last of a bag of trail mix on my way home.


I met Derek for some last minute Christmas shopping at Target after the lights, so by the time we made it home, it was late and we were both STARVING. I whipped up a very quick meal using what ever I could get my hands on in the fridge.

Starting with some rutabaga that I cubed and added to a hot pan with some olive oil.


Then some carrots, onion, and seasoning.


Once the veggies were soft, in went the cherry tomatoes, spinach, and the last of last night’s turkey breast.


I finished it all by adding 6 eggs and doing a scramble.




I topped mine with some plain greek yogurt and salsa.


For dessert, an attune chocolate bar.


Off to wrap the last of the present stash.

Good night!
