LA Bound

by Meghann on October 31, 2011

Greetings from high in the sky!


It’s been a while since I’ve blogged from an airplane. Last year I felt like I was blogging from a different one every week! I sooo do not miss that. Unfortunately my schedule looks like it’s leaning towards that same crazy travel schedule this coming month.

I’m currently on my way to Los Angeles to attend the Dole Blogger Summit (with a couple of extra days attached to the front to see my long lost twin brother), then I fly straight to Savannah to run the marathon on Saturday (that will be a fun flight/run). After the marathon I’m hitching a ride to my parents’ house with my little brother where I’ll rent a car to take me back to Tampa.

Did you get all that? Oh, it gets better.

Next Saturday I’ll be in Tallahassee for a wedding, the following Monday I’ll be heading to South Carolina for a work thing, the weekend after that I’ll be in Orlando for my little brother’s birthday, the weekend after that is Thanksgiving, and, finally, the first weekend in December I’ll be in Vegas running the half marathon.

I get dizzy just thinking about it. How did my travel schedule fill up so quickly?

Hopefully I’ll get back to my frequent-traveler-packing roots because I failed miserably this afternoon. I lost track of time catching up on work stuff from the weekend and ended up just re-packing a lot of the items I just unpacked and loaded in the wash. At least having everything already divided made it easy?

Packing snacks included roasted pumpkin seeds and a graham cracker with apple sauce.

Dinner was a packed meal that I (thankfully) remembered to throw together at the last minute.


Wraps are my favorite go-to travel food. You don’t have to worry about them getting squished, they’re easy to make, and all you have to do is peel the foil back and you’re good to go – no utensils required!

All of the above can be said for apples too.


The package of Justin’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups wasn’t exactly the Kit Kat Bar I had my heart set on, but they were already in my fridge ready to go. I’ll have to track down a Kit Kat bar soon though!


My flight was slightly delayed before take off, but the team did a great job boarding us in a timely matter.

The good news is I scored a row of seats all to myself – Yes!


The bad new is none of them recline – boo.


I’m going to save my $14.95 for inflight internet and wait to publish this until I land on the west coast.

See ya in LA!

My little trick-or-treater

October 31, 2011

Trick or Treat! New plan: I’m dressing Maddie up and taking her trick-or-treating tonight. I figured it would be the same deal as having a human two year old – she gets all the ‘awwwws’ for being so darn cute and I get to keep all the candy. Win-win. 😉 I’m kidding! I won’t even more »

Foiled again!

October 31, 2011

Darn you rain. Once again you foiled my plans for a nice run outside. Grrr…. I was tempted to say ‘the hell with it’ and just run through the rain, but I’m flying out of Tampa tonight and the idea of packing soaked running shoes wasn’t a nice one. So I choked down my pride more »

Ain’t no party like a bridesmaid party!

October 30, 2011

Word. This afternoon I made the short drive to Orlando to try on bridesmaid dresses with my sister and her lovely bridesmaids: Amber, Ashley, and Jessie (we missed you Stephanie!). But, before I left Tampa, I had some leftover butternut squash soup and cornbread for lunch. I specifically waited until the last minute to leave more »

Hot Apples

October 30, 2011

Good Morning. 🙂 How’s the weather where you are? Were you one of the lucky few to wake up to snow or is it still hot and humid? It’s cool and breezy here. <– love it! Which would have been awesome weather for running, but I decided to take it easy inside and dug out more »

I was boring today. b-o-booorrrrinnnggg. I’m sorry! It’s my last Saturday in town for a while and I wanted to take advantage of it while I could. There was good food though – I promise. 😉 My hunger kicked in around 2:00 and I was jonesing for some leftovers. The last of the hubbard squash more »
