Can you believe I forgot to take pictures of my empty apartment today? I’ve been trying so hard to stay on top of blogging the move and somehow I totally forgot. We’re going back in the morning so I can share them tomorrow.
I was a good food blogger today and did a good job getting back into the healthy eating even if it was moving day and taking lots of food pics.
So…back to the beginning. Matt and I got up super early (around 7) we wanted to make a coffee run before the movers showed up at 8:30.
We stopped at starbucks. I opted for a non-fat vanilla latte
And a low-fat chocolate chip banana loaf.
I actually only ate about half in the morning. I’m not sure what was wrong but I just wasn’t feeling much like eating and my belly was bothering me.
By 9:00 the movers still weren’t here but we didn’t want to waste anytime so we decided to start cleaning. I had done quite a bit but we still had the kitchen left to do and the upstairs bathroom.
The movers finally arrived at 10. Yippee!!
We spend the entire morning cleaning the kitchen by lunch time I was finally famished! I had a slice of leftover pizza that was in the fridge and the second half of my banana loaf along with lots and lots of water.
After lunch we tackled the upstairs bathroom and just a few other little things that needed to be accomplished.
Our couch (the heaviest couch ever!!!) that we just couldn’t give away with some strange manikin that the hubby found by the garbage.
By 1:30 we were done, the movers were done and it was time to try to pack the car and see if we could fit everything in it that we wanted to take on our road trip. This was a very stressful 30 mins but after I worked my packing magic we got it all in (pictures to come).
Then we headed to my dad’s to drop off our stuff before running some errands.
Unfortunately, my step-mom is scared to death of cats so our kitty is spending the next two nights at our empty apartment by himself and we will go pick him up on Sunday for the drive. I know I might sound crazy but this makes me a little sad. I know he’ll be ok by himself but I just don’t want him to be lonely. I can’t wait to go see him in the morning.
Ok, back to my day. While our running errands we got hungry so we stopped at the grocery store for a quick snack. I grabbed hummus and flatbread snack along with a peach.
Along with some Vitamin water.
Dinner at my dad’s was burgers on the grill (mines the one without the cheese).
Salad – lettuce, red pepper, green pepper, cucumber, yellow beans, broccoli, celery, some real bacon (which was a treat since we never have real bacon at home) and mozza.
And roasted potatoes.
I loaded up on the salad. It’s been 3 days since I’ve had fresh veggies and I was craving some. After I finished my plate I started eating the salad right out of the salad bowl – I need to get lots of veggies in before we hit the road.
During the evening I might have enjoyed a few glasses of this as well.
Strawberry wine and seven-up.
I was playing around with my camera and trying to take some cool shots of the wine glass.
What do you think? I’m my food photography getting any better? It’s so much easier with a deck and natural light.
One thing I can say is that my dad’s place is beautiful. I love being here. It’s so calm and relaxing.
I’ll leave you with a few shots that I took tonight.
