Quick Drive Home

by Meghann on January 23, 2011

Maddie is wiped.


Long car rides really take it out of her. She doesn’t like to miss a minute of the action outside, so spends the whole ride with her head at the window. It has the be exhausting trying to keep up with all the passing lights and cars. πŸ™‚


We had a quick and easy ride home from Tampa this evening. Maddie watched cars, I drove, and we made it back before our favorite Sunday primetime television shows began.

I was exhausted when we did finally make it back, so I kept it really easy with dinner by reheating leftovers.


Vegan Sausage Balls from Friday night.


with a ketchup and honey mustard dipping sauce



And broccoli on the side.


As of this afternoon I had one last Sweet! cupcake in my possession. Before I left Tampa I cut it in half and left half with Derek and brought the other half home for dessert.


This was the cookie and cream flavor and though it was not nearly as great as the peanut butter one from last night, it was still delicious. πŸ™‚

Meals and Miles Plunges

Check out this fun video Bess from Central Florida Top 5 put together of my plunge on Saturday.

I still find it very humorous that I’m in a bikini and complete surrounded by people fully decked out in costumes. Lesson learned. Next year I’m going with costumes all the way. πŸ˜‰

The bikini while surrounded by fully covered people made me laugh when I saw your post the other day. I figure it just means your a major badass.
Maddie isn’t going to know what to do when the trips back and forth to Tampa stop, lol.

I have been been having huge sugar craving today and that cupcake is not helping! I’m salivating all over my keyboard.

Poor Maddie πŸ™ My dog does the same thing. Well actually, my dog tries to run around the car to each window and drives us insane. But the point is that long drives wear him out too πŸ™‚

Can your costume involve a wet suit? It would definitely help with the cold πŸ™‚

You’re hardcore for doing it in a bikini! Those costumed people are warmer, well, maybe not.

You should have dressed up as a Baywatch babe and done the slow motion run into the water, that would have been hilarious πŸ™‚
