Slow Night

by Meghann on October 18, 2012

[wedding side note: invitations are all addressed and ready to be mailed! just waiting for the stamps I ordered online to send them out . it's starting to feel real!]

This afternoon i had a serving of trail mix with a cheese stick for an afternoon snack.


Dinner was on my own: 2-egg omelet with feta and avocado (cooked on too hot of pan – whoops!) and a side of carrots.


My hunger disappeared again. Perhaps it was the 12 cups of hot peppermint tea I had today? Just a guess.

On another note I found two things of medicine in our cabinet that expired in 2005. I’m not sure which is more entertaining, the fact that we still have it or the fact that one of us has been moving the same bottle of Motrin since college. ;)

PSA of the day: take a few minutes to check the expiration dates and clean out your medicine cabinet.

Good Night!

I don’t think you want to know what I had for dinner ‘on my own’ tonight….eek

I took NyQuil the other night and was really confused why it didn’t make me feel sleepy at all after 2 hours…only to check that it had expired in 2002!

Hot drinks will do that to hunger.

I found meds in my cabinet that expired in 2000!! I guess it is a good thing we do not have to use it that often!

Omelets with avocado are the best! My go-to “I have nothing to eat” meal.

That is hilarious about the medicine cabinet! I think it takes me like, 10 years to go through a box of bandaids and jar of vasoline too.

A roommate of mine in university did that — had a different medication for every possible ailment that you could ever imagine. I found it ridiculous that (1) she brought them all with her to school, and (2) none of them were less than three years expired. When I asked her, she said they were her “just in case” drugs.
Side note — she was a GIANT hypochondriac.

Ha! I had a cold this past week and I also found multiple cold med’s that had expired (2007 was oldest LOL), so don’t feel bad. I went out and bought all new med’s :)

I actually went through my medicine cabinet last night too and found expired stuff! I need to do that more often and especially my pantry. I get so bad at throwing old items out.

This is inspiring me to clean out both my medicine cabinet and my fridge!

I gound expired meds lately too that must have survived a move it two. Oops. I’m glad you share my love of eggs with avocado. I don’t know what it is but they just go so well with each other!

My Dad had medicine that expired in 1997 in his cabinet and he actually tried to convince me to take it. 1997. Marinate on that. ;-)

Peppermint is a natural appetite suppressant! Maybe switch up the tea flavor :) Also, I just started reading your blog and I love it! Its beyond inspiring! Thank you for being so positive!
