Crossing Fingers, Toes, Arms, Legs, etc…

by Meghann on May 5, 2010

The flyers are up!

During my lunch break I posted more than a dozen flyers around my complex. I put one on each of my neighbor’s doors in my building, one in the stairwell exactly where it went missing, one on each set of mailboxes in the complex, and the last at the rec building at the front entrance. I debated putting some on the gates, but wondered if people would actually be able to read them while driving in.

I also spoke with the maintenance people and asked that they let me know if anything gets turned in.

Now it is a wait and see game. :/

I know it is not the end of the world that the Garmin is gone, but it is still a sad day in my book. It’s my blog and I can cry if I want to, right?

Anyways… I did have some good eats today.

Including a Chocolate Oikos with a spoonful of granola.


Chocolate oikos is oddly comforting. 🙂

I also managed to make this fantastic sandwich for lunch.


  • Onion Roll
  • Spinach
  • Tomato
  • Mushrooms
  • Hummus
  • Goat Cheese
  • Avocado


So many great flavors going on here!


Chips and Salsa


And an oddly phallic pickle in my opinion



Comfort food also resented itself in the form of a caramel apple lollipop.


I love these things! They kill my teeth, but they taste so good it’s almost worth it. 🙂

Random Fact: Did you know Derek doesn’t like caramel? Pshhh….

Random Fact #2: My body is STILL sore from kick boxing on Monday! – a good sign that I will be returning again in the near future.

Random Fact #3: My company’s new website is launching tomorrow. Ahhhh!!!

I hope your fliers work – so sad about your Garmin!

I can’t believe Derek doesn’t like caramel – I love caramel.

That sandwich looks delicious – what a beautiful avocado!

2 Evan Thomas May 5, 2010 at 2:03 pm

I think I need to find something in this dorm caramel now just to make up for Derek’s lack of enthusiasm over it.

I hope you get your Garmin back!

4 Diana May 5, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I hope you find it! I’d be miserable if I lost something like that, honestly :/

5 britchickruns May 5, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Good luck with the Garmin search – I don’t blame you for being miffed about it, I’d have been in floods! For once, I’m glad I live in the middle of nowhere…
Love that roll”

You can be sad about your Garmin, don’t apologize. They’re expensive for one. And second, you’re allowed to be sad because they ruined your morning workout too! Dang it. I’m crossing my fingers and toes for you. Keep us updated!

I’d be upset if my Garmin went missing, too — I don’t even know if I’d have had the presence of mind to put up flyers! I do know one thing…that onion roll looks AMAZING. I love onion bread 🙂

8 Beth May 5, 2010 at 2:39 pm

That sandwich looks awesome. And those caramel apply lollipops!? SO good. I haven’t had one in YEARS but they used to be my favorite. They aren’t great for the teeth like you say – – similar to Riesens in that way.


9 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday May 5, 2010 at 2:48 pm

crossing your legs eh? not sure how that will help 😉

10 Tracey May 5, 2010 at 2:51 pm

I haven’t had a caramel apple lollipop in forever! I didn’t even know I could buy them anymore.

I really hope someone turns in your Garmin. I’m trying to believe the best in people.

11 sweetandsweat May 5, 2010 at 2:53 pm

I hope you find your Garmin!! And how does he not like caramel!?!?

12 Jenny May 5, 2010 at 2:55 pm

How do you not like caramel!?!?

13 Katherine: What About Summer? May 5, 2010 at 2:59 pm

When I was little, I would always say I’m crossing my hair! (tangled mess that it is) Good luck with the site! there are always glitches in the beginning

14 rollerkoesterrun May 5, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Dude that really sucks. I really hope someone returns it. Maybe your flyers will show just how important it is to you, and even if someone purposely stole it, they will have a change of heart. Hoping for you…


15 Ashleigh May 5, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Mmmm you sandwich looks fab! I am so jealous you can whip together lunch at home. I bring my lunch every day but by the time it’s lunch time I’m in the mood for something else!! I usually have that for dinner ahha. Good luck with the website launch tomorrow and I really hope someone returns your garmin!

16 Megan @ Mego Blog May 5, 2010 at 3:10 pm

That is SO lame about your Garmin. I hope the person that took it sees all your posters and feels guilty and returns it to you. Why does there have to be such rude people out there?!

BTW, your sandwich looks yummy. : )

17 Mary May 5, 2010 at 3:14 pm

I love carmel! psshhh to derek!

Good luck finding yours / ashley’s garmin!! I hope it turns up for you!!

18 Mary May 5, 2010 at 3:15 pm

I love carmel! pshh to Derek!

Good luck finding the garmin!! I hope it turns up for you!!

19 Derek May 5, 2010 at 3:25 pm

sooo gross…what’s wrong with ya’ll?? 😉

20 Hallie May 5, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Oh you can SO cry if you want to…losing things is really sucky, always! I hope it turns up.

21 kate May 5, 2010 at 3:35 pm

UGH good luck! I hate when things like this happen because they totally bum you out and while it isn’t life-changing, it still can really ruin your mood for awhile. I have a good feeling you will get your Garmin back, though, just because….I do?! Try to distract yourself from thinking about it this afternoon and hopefully it will turn up asap!

22 ida May 5, 2010 at 3:41 pm

good luck! hopefully someone will turn it in soon. A garmin isn’t even worth anything without a charger. So lame that someone took it…
you have every right to be upset. it’s sad to even lose all the data, i love looking through my garmin’s history.

23 Carolyn @ May 5, 2010 at 3:55 pm

I’m actually not a big fan of caramel, myself.

24 Michelle May 5, 2010 at 4:25 pm

I cross my hair and toes and fingers for you too!! I hope whoever it was realizes the Garmin isn’t half as useful by itself and returns it. I wonder if there’s a tracking number for the watch itself!! Since the watch is GPS equipped, maybe there’s a security department from Garmin that can trace the whereabouts of the watch. Worth a try right?? Try contacting someone from Garmin!!

Good luck Meghann!!

25 Erin May 5, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Hopefully there’s an honest person out there who will spot your Garmin and give you a call.

26 fitandfortysomething May 5, 2010 at 5:02 pm

great sandwich for sure 🙂 hope you get your garmin back!

27 Lisa @ bakebikeblog May 5, 2010 at 5:29 pm

I really hope it turn up!!!

28 runningwithsass May 5, 2010 at 6:30 pm

I hope you find your garmin!
yum I love caramel. But caramel okios is way better than chocolate!

29 breakingsilence May 5, 2010 at 7:04 pm

I can’t find chocolate Oikos anywhere – where are you finding it??

30 Meghann May 5, 2010 at 8:22 pm

Whole Foods!

31 Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 5, 2010 at 7:07 pm

Aw, girl, I hope your garmin shows up!

32 theprocessofhealing May 5, 2010 at 7:31 pm

Good luck! I can understand because Garmins are expensive!!!!

33 Julie @ Pickley Pear May 5, 2010 at 7:55 pm

Good luck finding the Garmin! I love the Chocolate Oikos, in a weird way too 🙂

34 dianacheung May 5, 2010 at 8:22 pm

i would be crushed too if my garmin or uber expensive thing went missing!!! i hope someone turns it in! 🙁 If not maybe garmin co. will send you a free one to try out for your blog. 🙁

35 Jenna May 5, 2010 at 8:48 pm

hope the garmin turns up!

36 Emily May 5, 2010 at 9:09 pm

Maybe this will give you hope –

37 Megan @ The Oatmeal Diaries May 5, 2010 at 9:17 pm

I totally forgot about those amazing caramel apple pops. And I really need to try chocolate Oikos! Sounds tasty.

38 Emilyeatsclean May 5, 2010 at 9:25 pm

Hope the Garmin makes it safely back into your hands soon! That ‘wich looks tasty!! 🙂


39 Pure2raw twins May 5, 2010 at 11:21 pm

So sorry to hear about your Garmin. I cannot believe someone would be that low, but hopefully it turns up soon!
