Beach or Bust!

May 15, 2009 at 10:22 am 9 comments

I couldn’t be any happier right now, I’m almost all packed and ready to go! I have 4 hours until we’re on the road and on our way to the beach.  I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much this week, we’ve had to do a lot of things to prepare, Wednesday we had to go bathing suit shopping (I got 2 new bathing suits that will hopefully fit me throughout the summer because damn they were expensive), then we went to Panera for dinner (I forgot my camera but I do have pictures of the leftovers I had for lunch yesterday) and then my friend Laura came over so I could see her before we left and so she could show me some samples of invitations she got for her wedding next year.  After she left I cleaned the apartment a little and then went right to sleep.

I do have my eats from yesterday to share, unfortunately they are pretty boring because we seriously have NOTHING left in the fridge to eat.

For breakfast I grabbed a Luna bar.

Perfect as always.

Work was a little hectic yesterday because I had a lot of things to finish before my vacation started.  When lunch time rolled around I realized how hungry I was and was more then happy to eat my left overs from Panera.  I had decided to skip the “you pick two” and get a whole sandwich.  I got the Chipotle Chicken sandwich which I customized without the tomatoes (I hate tomatoes) I got it on regular french bread, and I didn’t get the chipotle mayo spread.  So even though it says it should be about 900 calories I’m guessing with it was less and I did spread it out over 2 meals so I don’t feel like it was that bad.  It was definitely delicious if nothing else.

Once I got out of work I had a quick errand to run, then met Andrew at my mom’s house so he could leave his car in their driveway instead of on the street by our apartment.  Then we ran to whole foods to stock up on some bars for the trip. On our way home from running errands I realized how hungry I was, I was craving pizza so I I had 2 pieces at our local pizzeria.  I got sausage, peppers, and onions.

After dinner I went to my friend Jessica’s to drop off a check I owed her and to see her before we left, we only stayed for about 1/2 an hour but by the time we got home it was after 8!  Andrew still had to pack and I wanted to load up the car before bed.    Andrew couldn’t get off work today so I drove him into work this morning and will be picking him up and leaving right from their for the long road trip.  After I got home from dropping him off I called my mom to talk to her, I’m so excited to be with my family again tonight, while on the phone I saw a gigantic hornet/bee/wasp (whatever) on the window in the kitchen.

It’s hard to get an idea of how big this thing really is but it’s about the size (both width and length of my thumb).  I am convinced it is a killer bee of some kind (are those even still around?)  I grabbed a can of hornet spray from under the sink but there was barely anything left in it since I have to spray every bug I see with it, I called everyone of my friend’s to see if their boyfriends were around, I even contemplated calling the landlord to come up and take care of the situation.  I was afraid I would hit the bee not kill it and then it would come after me.  Then I came up with a brilliant plan to kill the bee!

I got a glue trap that we had, sprayed a fake flower with some perfume and placed it on the glue trap hoping to entice the bee to step on it.  I do not know if this worked because I’ve been hiding out ever since if it doesn’t work soon I will be picking a real flower and placing it on the trap, if that doesn’t work I’m going to just leave for the week and hope it dies on it’s own. 

Well I’m off to run the last of the errands, we will be on the road at 3 and won’t be arriving until very late since we have at least an 8 hour drive.  I will be blogging throughout the week (hopefully poolside) and keep your eyes open for a very exciting give-away sometime early in the week!
