A Quick Plate

by Meghann on June 30, 2011

I did it again.

I waited too long to make lunch, felt my stomach start to eat itself, and scrambled to the kitchen to prepare a plate of food as fast as I could.


I only have myself to blame. My stomach started to grumble at 11:30am, but I was so wrapped up in a project, I didn’t want to eat until it was done. Thirty minutes, I told myself, thirty minutes was all I needed. Somehow that thirty minutes turned into an hour and that hour became an hour and a half. By the time I wrapped up the project it was after 1:00 and my stomach was on full revolt.

I grabbed a jar of peanut butter from the cabinet, sliced some carrots and apples, toasted a cinnamon raisin bagel thin, and called it lunch.


Not exactly a ‘real meal’ but it did the trick. 🙂


Maddie didn’t mind.


She took her job of finishing off the last of the peanut butter on the plate very seriously.


Slurp. That’s some good PB!


I’m such a proud mama. 🙂

It’s officially rainy season in Florida. It’s been raining pretty non-stop this whole week and looks like the forecast is bleak through the weekend. Yay for plants and grass – Boooo for those of us with outdoor evening plans.

Just a Run

June 30, 2011

Good Morning. 🙂 Do you know what I did this morning? I went for a run. That’s it – a simple 6 mile run with no time limits, no other sports attached, and no treadmill involved. I just laced up my running shoes and took off. I can’t tell you the last time I went more »

Tonight I had the pleasure of attending my first ever official Tweet Up at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. Funny Story. A couple of months ago I saw a handful of my Orlando twitter friend tweeting about a Tweet Up they were attending at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Orlando. As a HUGE fan of Anthony’s more »

Preparing Lunch as Dinner

June 29, 2011

I’m not sure why, but I tend to be lazy when it comes to preparing lunch. Maybe it’s because I only give myself a 30 minute break? (I’m a tough boss) Or maybe it’s because I wait until I’m starving to finally make my lunch? (Workaholic. Right here.) But I can tell you that my more »

Alarm Clock Fail

June 29, 2011

Gooooodddddd Mooorrrnnninngg!!! The morning started off late for me. For the second day in a row my alarm clock failed to ring. Not 100% what is up with that, but I updated my phone software and all the apps. Hopefully that helps! Luckily Derek’s clock acts as a great back up – it’s just a more »

A Little of This. A Little of That.

June 28, 2011

Today went in the complete opposite direction of yesterday. Instead of driving all over the state without a minute to breathe, I stayed on my couch with my laptop glued to my thighs. I finally feel caught up on e-mails. Sort of. I had an afternoon snack of Kix, peanuts, and pecans. I was in more »
