Safe and Sound

by Meghann on August 27, 2012

I made it back to Tampa in one piece. (that was more for my mom than anyone else 😉 )

I waited until most of the bands had passed, then took my time driving across the state. Honestly, I’ve driven through worse. Our afternoon thunderstorms can get pretty crazy sometimes – they throw some of these tropical storm conditions out the window. There was some wind out there, but not a ton of rain – just gloomy skies and open roads.

I downloaded “Hunger Games” before I left. After having the books in my procession for months (and eventually having to return them to the owner), I figured I was more likely to listen to the books than read them. So far I’m a fan. I watched the movie last night with my dad and there were too many holes for my taste – I’m hoping that listening to the books will fill a few in. I’m only 2 hours in, but so far, so many things already make so much more sense. I’m going to have to watch the move again after I’m finish listening to the book – maybe I’ll have more of an appreciation for it?

I stopped at Starbucks on the way home and picked up a non-fat misto and a Raw bar.

Derek was in charge of dinner tonight.


He picked up soup from the Publix deli section (I requested their chili)


And I made a side plate of the flax bread, cheddar, pickles, and tomato.


He also bought ice cream. I had a scoop of the vanilla with walnuts and chocolate chunks.


I updated the wedding page! My wedding band came in last week – check out the final product.

And with that, it’s time for bed.

Good night!

Growing up in the hurricane state

We have a tropical storm in our backyard. Why, hello, Mr. Isaac. I can’t say it’s a pleasure to meet you. Isaac is not the first tropical storm to pass so close to home this season, and he certainly won’t be the last. Hurricane season runs through November and usually reaches its peak sometime in more »

Wedding: My Custom Wedding Band

August 27, 2012

Look what I picked up last week! Wait for it… It’s my wedding band! p.s. wedding bands are hard things to take photos of. Back in early July, Derek and I did some wedding band browsing that proved to be very educational. After trying on several styles of rings, I decided a sapphire/ diamond band more »

A new member of the family

August 27, 2012

Say hello to the new puppy. We’re still looking for a name. Any ideas?! My parents brought the new pups home yesterday afternoon. They were “just looking,” but when they drove up and saw his face waiting in the yard – how could they say no? It was love at first sight. The same thing more »
