Going to see Shamu

by Meghann on October 23, 2009

Good Morning!

We are packing up and about to head out to Sea World. The forecast is sunny, the tickets are printed and we’re full of excitement similar to that of 5 year old girls about to see Shamu for the first time. It’s going to be a great day. ๐Ÿ™‚

My goal was to sleep in until 7:00 this morning, but sadly was wide awake long before then. Damn that eternal body clock!

After killing time by playing online, showering and entertaining Maddie I eventually made a killer breakfast that I am hoping to keep me fueled while exploring the park all day.


I made Erin and I two heaping bowls of cereal.


Each bowl contained:

  • 1/2 C Kashi H2H
  • 1/2 C Kashi Go Lean Crunch
  • 1/2 C Peanut Butter Puffins
  • Plain Yogurt
  • 1/2 Pear

Erin was very curious of the bowl of cereal I presented her with. She kept asking what yogurt I used (Plain Fat Free Stonyfield), which cereals and why.


While eating we did a little reminiscing on how different we used to eat back in the day. For instant in college my breakfast consisted of a Kudos bar on my way out the door. And that’s only IF I remembered to eat breakfast.


It’s officially time to head out now. We plan to arrive at Sea World right as they’re opening the gates to avoid some of the lines we expect to grow during the day. I didn’t have anything appealing to pack in the fridge for lunch, so I’m crossing my fingers there are some decent choices available. However; I’m not holding my breath.

Don’t Forget!!

As of right now I am still holding strong in the Top 20, but I need your help to stay there. Please take 10 second and head over to my profile to vote for me as the Sam-e Good Mood Gig! You can vote once a day from as many computers as you can get a hold of until October 30th.

And while you’re in the voting mood, these lovely ladies need your help too! Help us get into and stay in the Top 20!

Mmm good breakfast – have fun at Seaworld!

I haven’t been to Seaworld in years! There isn’t even one around me that I could go to. Thinking of it brings back some fun memories of going with my family when I was little.

Ha, Kudos bars, I used to eat those too. So glad we’ve both changed ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you have a fun day with your friend!

I remember days of living off bars for breakfast(the kudos with M&Ms were my fave)

12 Jenna October 23, 2009 at 9:31 am

13 Rose October 23, 2009 at 9:56 am

Have fun today! I’d rather be at Sea World than work right now!

14 meyergirl October 23, 2009 at 10:02 am

Have fun!!

I hope you go on the Manta ride!!! It’s the BEST (read: scariest!) new roller coaster out there. We went to the Shark restaurant for dinner and it was delicious, but too expensive. Afraid we didn’t have that much luck with finding a decent place for lunch.

How healthy are the PB Puffins? I had it once and really liked the taste, but I’m always skeptical when a cereal is really yummy!

17 skinnyrunner October 23, 2009 at 11:33 am

have a fun time at sea world!
its interesting to hear about your healthy changes and how your friend perceives what is just normal to you now, like breakfast. just kinda interesting.
have a great day!

18 Clay October 23, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Voted and Jealous!!! I do love me some shamu… but, to be honest, am a bigger fan of the Sea Lion and Otter show. I still want one as a pet!

Question, at Sea World… what is your policy on the Funnel Cake?

19 Tay October 23, 2009 at 1:02 pm

Have a wonderfully fun day!! I love it when people are curious about healthy foods and you can “enknowledge” them (is that even a word?)

20 Whitney @ Lettuce Love October 23, 2009 at 1:24 pm

I love Sea World — have fun!

Sounds like one awesome breakfast ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a great day at Sea World, I can’t wait to hear all about it!!

I had a similar problem this morning. It’s saturday and the one day I’m allowed to sleep in for as long as I like, but did my body agree? ooohhh no. Not only did I NOT sleep in, I woke up and hour at 20 minutes earlier than usual at 5 AM!!!
I couldn’t believe it. I’ve never been able to get up that early. And then one day it just happens. WEIRD
