Good evening! Currently, I am writing this in the car and on the road. We’re driving to Columbia, South Carolina and exploring the town tomorrow morning. Then, we’re driving to Charlotte, North Carolina.
But before we hit the road, I had to finish up another hectic day of work. My mid-afternoon snacks included Shredded Wheat drizzled with a little real maple syrup.
Plus a handful of raisins. I was craving fruit, but we were all out of the fresh stuff!
After work, the Husband and I drove to my parents-in-law’s house and jumped in their car for the looooong drive up north. We stopped for dinner on the way. One principle that I live by is "do the best you can with the situation you are given." This totally applies to eating as well! ESPECIALLY at a fast food joint like Wendy’s!
I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich, hold the mayo:
And a 99 cent side salad with some Balsamic Vin.
And a Coke Zero, AKA Liquid Crack.
I’m 95% sure this is the first time I’ve eaten fast food since I started blogging in July 2008! The movie Supersize Me had a serious affect on me. If you haven’t seen it yet, rent it!
My mother-in-law packed a load of snacks for the car trip. I ate a True Delights bar.
And three cheesy pretzel sticks, which I couldn’t get a good photo of in a dark car for the life of me! SO… here’s a cheesy pretzel stick mustache!
:) Back to navigating! Stay tuned for constant recaps of our vacay!
Edited to add: It’s 2:45 AM and we just arrived! AHH!
