5 Things

by Meghann on March 5, 2012

#1 – I bought a wedding dress!

More details to come on the Wedding Page later this week. ๐Ÿ˜‰

#2 – I’m leaving for Austin tomorrow!

I’m a proud member of one of six teams that Chevrolet is sponsoring on a road tripping journey to South by Southwest in Austin, TX. Along the way, we will be blogging, tweeting, and doing all we can to raise money for Adopt-A-Classroom – an awesome organization that provides teachers with the funds they need to purchase critical resources and materials for their classroom.

We leave Tuesday and we will be stopping to visit the 3 classrooms we are sponsoring – in Orlando, Tallahassee and Houston – along the way. Please check out our website (we’re team Fresh Squeezed!) to donate money directly to the classrooms (as an individual or as a business), follow us on Twitter, and spread the news of our journey of 1,200 miles!

I’m really excited to be working with such a great cause and can’t wait for the journey to begin tomorrow morning!

#3 – A tasty dinner isn’t always a pretty dinner.

And when the brussels sprouts stopped looking pretty, I topped them with two runny eggs – Yum!

The apple slices were originally going to be cooked with the brussels sprouts, but I decided to leave them out on the side instead.

#4 – I called dibs on the last of the cookie monster

#5 – Did you run Gasparilla this weekend?

Send me your links! I’m working on a recap link-up post.

I think that covers it.

Do you have 5 things to share?

Sisterly Love

March 5, 2012

Official Gasparilla photos were released this morning! And somehow I ended up with a picture that I kinda, sorta love. So that’s what finishing strong looks like? Noted. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Of course my favorite photo is the one the photographers captured of my sister right before she crushed it at the finish line. Check out that more ยป

An ‘A’ For Effort

March 5, 2012

Derek won the fiance-of-the-year award when he surprised me with a new CD player for my car for my birthday (either that or he was tired of me complaining about the broken aux plug in the old one ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). The original plan was to wait and have my little brother install it next time more ยป
