…would highly approve of this beastly salad I ate on the road. Yes, I brought my family-size salad bowl with me on the road, it’s fine.
Eaten with my favorite new travel utensils
GOTCHA! You totally thought I was going to say I met the prez:) Sorry kiddos, today is not the day. If I end up going to school in DC though, I might end up seeing the First Lady playing tennis! Or Obama might speak at commencement..who knows;)
So you know how my family likes their food..yeah we do not joke.
PB + Prune sandwich made by yours truly, promptly scarfed by the Padre. We do not use jelly in this family, we use dried fruit. Prunes and raisins, please and thanks!
FYI, we at that whole container in two days.
Me + Padre = Mean Eating Machine.
The view inside:
H2O duh, and my Droid is charging via a pluggity plug thingymajig the Padre bought a year or so back on a road trip. Best. investment. ever. Go to Radio Shack and get one of these, it is less than $30 and will save you loads of stress over your phone, iPod, laptop, what have you, dying in the middle of a car trip and thinking the world is going to end.
Not that I would know or anything.
The view outside:
JERSEY SHORE, 24 MILES?!
Honey bunches, you can bet your bottom dollar I was begging the Padre to take a detour but he said no. Sorry Mike, we’ll get married another time.
We spent the long drive singing along to Glee (can you pay my bills? Name that song!) I am marrying Blaine, I do not care if he is gay, listening to Hamlet (for Lit, no I do not do that stuff for fun), and talking about my dream of combining nutrition, public health, anthropology, research, and travel internationally. I can’t wait to see where college takes me!
Oh, and we also did our fair share of yelling at other drivers through our windshield (oh yeah, we told ‘em). One guy was a jerkasauraus rex and was tailgating me on a 75 mph highway. Jack. butt.
My sched for the day:
- Working out
- Eating every raisin I can find
- Having one of my besties over for movies, food, and girl talk:)
- Memorizing the Hamlet “To Be or Not to Be” speech (the things I do for classes…)
- Packing (again)
- Eating more raisins
- And going to SLEEP
Oh and DON’T FORGET TO SEND IN YOUR MISSION: I FEEL PRETTY pictures! I have gotten gorgeous ones so far, you girls are absolutely beautiful!! I am so glad we are all helping ourselves to feel more special:)
That’s all for this morning loves! It is WAY past my bedtime, and I am about to fall asleep on my keyboard so here are some questiones for you!
What do you eat on road trips? Do you pack food too, or stop on the way? What do you pack/get?
I ALWAYS pack food, but occasionally stop to grab nuts, fruit, something I am dying for (like raisins..bee tee dubs not ONE gas station I stopped at had raisins, so in case you are a crazy raisin lover like I am, you better pack some for yourself!).
What are your favorite road trip activities?
Jamming out to the iPod, Travel Scrabble (I am a pro), and getting on each other’s nerves. Life is good.
Do you watch Jersey Shore? Are you crazy obsessed too?
I am marrying Mike the Sitch. Our children would be really tan and have AWESOME abs.
Tell me some of your dreams for the future!!
I told you mine, now it is your turn:)
