When we woke up in DC, I was unpleasantly surprised to discover SNOW was on the ground. Luckily, it was only a dusting and didnâ€™t interrupt our driving plans.
The drive from DC to Charlotte is a little over six hours. About an hour into the journey, we stopped for Wawa coffee (the best gas station coffee on the planet â€“ feel free to debate Wawa v. Sheetz if youâ€™re from up northâ€¦) and a banana.
And we also did the Subway thing. I had a veggie sub with cheddar cheese.
Plus an appleâ€¦
And a Buckeye, which is peanut butter covered in chocolate.
The next time youâ€™re on a car trip, I HIGHLY suggest you stop by a Cracker Barrel and rent a book on tape. You have to pay a $20 deposit but the book rental is only $3.95 for a few weeks, and you can return it to ANY Cracker Barrel. We rented a steamy romance book and spent the entire trip dissecting character motivations (â€œI WOULD NEVER TAKE HIM BACK!!!â€) and being embarrassed by the very descriptive love scenes (overused phrases include â€œhis mouth claimed hers,â€ â€œvelvet kisses,â€ and â€œthrobbing centerâ€).
Car trip WIN.
I need to unpack, squeeze in a workout, and bake a delicious home-cooked meal. Stay tuned for a recipe!
