Oh my goodness. What a day. I got the workout of my life without stepping foot in the gym, that’s for sure!!! Getting that mattress down three flights of stairs, on top of the car and up to the second floor of our apartment in Tampa was a killer! We made it though and now are parked on the couch and cannot move.

But to back up—this morning I had a big bowl of panda puffs with heart to heart, skim milk and half a banana (gave Ryan the other half for his cereal). I also had a morningstar farms sausage patty for more protein. I needed it to get through the morning!


After we got everything down and in the car, I set out to run some last minute errands and I picked up an Einsteins whole grain bagel with hummus and a coffee for lunch.



And then THIS happened when we were driving down the interstate:


It was just too funny not to capture on camera. Everyone was honking and laughing at poor Ryan and we had to pull over and get the ropes tighter. No more drama after that!

We got in to Tampa around an hour ago and there’s a huge art fair going on in our neighborhood. When I was pulling in I saw my dream: a huge Kashi tent giving away free cereal! I had to walk down there and get some.



This is Mountain Medley Granola with soy milk. How cute! I really liked this cereal…it was delicious!!!

We have a TON to unpack now and Ryan is grouchy because the Gators are losing. We are going over to my parent’s house for an early dinner tonight so I can say goodbye and then we have an engagement party to go to.

I’ll be back later!

    So funny about the mattress! And I love that you took a picture of it, too! At least it didn’t fly off and you guys could save it 😉 I’m moving next weekend and am not really looking forward to it (HATE moving) but I know I’ll at least get a good workout in with all the lifting and carrying things back and forth!
    Free Kashi cereal?! How awesome!

    When I moved last month it was one of the best work outs I ever had. Nothing like getting a couch to a second story to make you feel empowered.

    I love the Kashi tent! I would have crashed it for free cereal as well.

    Oh, I also meant to say – massive congrats with completing your course…. you’re doing so well. I’m so jealous – it all looks so amazing. You are so lucky to be doing something you love so much, I really enjoy my job but I am a solicitor and really, there’s only so much love you can have for that! It ain’t baking…
