Yesterday I was almost awake for a full 24 hours! The day started out innocently enough around 6:30 am with my usual wake up call from the munchkin. I sprung into gear, fed her, then fed myself.
1 egg + 2 egg whites, omelet-ized, with orange and red peppers, mushrooms, spinach and goat cheese. Half a bagel on the side.
Then it was exercise time. I got in 4.3 miles in 52 minutes with my little crew.
I came home to commence Operation Eat the Fridge (in my head I say it like WeHadABabyItsABoy)
Romaine, spinach, avocado, peppers, beans, feta, jalapenos and balsamic (Newman’s Own, of course). Followed closely by (almost an entire container of) hummus.
Am I the only one who doesn’t mix it?
I had to run a few last minute errands, in which I downed a Clif bar- my new go-to bar.
Then, by late afternoon, it was time to hit the road. We gathered the troops…
and set our route.
Holy moly. We started the trip around 4:30pm and it wasn’t long before I was hungry. We decided not to delay eating since I wasn’t becoming anymore pleasant to ride with as the minutes ticked by.
Using the magic of cell phones, we looked up ahead and ordered take out from Carrabbas.
I split a side salad (and an entre loaf of bread) with David, then downed the entire serving of penne with veggies myself.
After a final feeding for Hailey and a little time spent in the back seat, and she was asleep by the time we hit Atlanta.
I drank an unsweet tea after feeding Hailey and the caffeine must have been potent because somehow I stayed awake for the whole trip, snacking on Certs (love those little mints!) the whole way.
Around 1:30am, we took a pit stop and split an Oreo McFlurry.
Nothing but quality photos for you, my friends.
A few more foggy back roads and we finally made it. We ended up getting in around 3am EST. Overall it was a smooth trip, Hailey slept the whole time and it was totally worth it because this morning we got to wake up to this…
And now we’re off to eat breakfast and watch some boats with my wonderful in-laws in Destin, FL!
What’s the longest you’ve ever driven in one day?
