Friends in High Places

Look who I found…


My friend Megan!  We used to live together in Orlando, but now she lives in the Silver Spring area (it’s near DC).  I arranged my work schedule today so that we could hang out and play for a little bit.  It was nice to see her face – I haven’t seen her since August.


I arrived at her sky rise apartment, and then we walked to get Thai food. We got the lunch special, which was oh-so-filling. 



And then we got frozen yogurt.  I got vanilla with strawberries, blueberries, and Reese’s.  Yum.


So… now, I’m sitting on the couch in an intense Thai food and froyo yogurt coma.  But I better wake up and peel myself up because I’ve got to drive two hours north for a presentation.  Seeya in Delaware.


The winner of Who Loves to Read Giveaway?! is… Shela!  Her favorite book is East of Eden.  Congrats!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats March 1, 2012, 1:20 pm

    That lunch looks delicious! and I am CRAZY craving fro yo, which I think is because I went to get it for the first time in weeks on Tuesday and the fro yo place in my neighborhood had just closed. No fro yo. I am losing it.

    What happened to Megan’s blog? I really liked it and she kind of dropped off the face of the earth with no explanation!

    • CaitlinHTP March 1, 2012, 9:51 pm

      I think she just needed a change of pace… She may be back one day!

    Hi, Meganerd! You are missed in the blog world.. hope all is well. 🙂

  • Kristen Matella March 1, 2012, 7:00 pm

    Wowsers! You were just down the block from my house today! Can’t believe it. Would have loved to meet you, since I’m such a big fan. (My husband says I stalk your blog, which may be accurate.) We literally live right down Colesville Rd. Isn’t downtown Silver Spring neat?! My son is having his 7th birthday party right down there at the Ice Skating rink this weekend.

    Safe Travels!

    • CaitlinHTP March 1, 2012, 9:54 pm

      I drove on Colesville! Hah! Aww I would’ve loved to meet you, too. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

  • Megan March 1, 2012, 7:06 pm

    Where did Megan go?? I miss her blog! And her dating stories!

  • Danielle March 1, 2012, 7:11 pm

    That’s so neat! I live in Silver Spring too. I am actually working at the restaurant right across the street from FrozenYo while I finish my internship.

    All of us Silver Spring readers should meet up sometime. Small world 🙂

  • MegaNerd March 1, 2012, 7:52 pm

    I believe you meant to say the “posh” couch…and “ghetto shui” books-everywhere apartment. hahahah.

    It was so great to see you (and the bump) today! 🙂 Thank you for lunch, pal.

    • Kim March 1, 2012, 9:07 pm

      I miss your blog. I liked to follow along as your were training for an event because it made me go work out.

    • Joey March 3, 2012, 1:27 am

      Megan! Come back to the blog world – we miss your updates!!! You look great! 🙂

  • Elisabeth March 1, 2012, 8:16 pm

    I miss Meganerd’s blog! She must have moved if she’s in Silver Spring? New job, too?

  • Lee March 1, 2012, 8:42 pm

    I grew up like 10 minutes from Silver Spring!

  • Cait @ Cait Strides March 1, 2012, 8:49 pm

    Whoa! I knew I recognized Silver Spring, that’s where I live/work. I was totally downtown today too during lunch time and got FroZenYo. I love that they have a peanut butter topping.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 1, 2012, 10:11 pm

    Aww it’s always so nice to hang out with a friend you don’t get to see often. This is making me miss my bestie who now lives 5 hours away from me!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 1, 2012, 10:19 pm

    Mmmm that looks like such a delicious lunch…I’ve been craving some froyo for a few days now. :-/

  • caryn March 1, 2012, 11:31 pm

    that food looks sooooo good! & like everyone else (it seems!), i miss meganerd’s blog! but i’m guessing/hoping that she’s keeping busy & having fun. 🙂

  • Pam March 2, 2012, 6:20 am

    Throwing out some more Megan love in hopes that enough of it will get her to blog again! =)

  • Reenie March 2, 2012, 8:18 am

    I miss seeing and hearing about Megan….did she get rid of her blog? Meg ~ you look great ~ glad you girls got together so you could see Cat’s cute baby bump 🙂

  • adie (adiecakes) March 2, 2012, 2:54 pm

    You were like, two blocks from my apartment! Crazy stuff. Sadly I haven’t been to the Thai place yet (other than to pick up a menu! Ha), is it good? I love having a good Thai place in my arsenal!

    Glad you got to have fun on your way up to DE. Safe travels!
