Happy Friday everyone!!! Who is excited for the weekend? I am!!!! I’ve mentioned it a couple times before, but today I am off to South Carolina because my friend, Mary Frances, is marrying Vince!!!! And yes, I was actually there when they met. It was at an oyster roast and they once they were introduced you couldn’t keep them apart. I actually remember that were trying to convince everyone to head to a bar after, but I had to get home and to bed since I was taking a practice LSAT exam in the morning! Feels like forever ago!

Don’t worry. The bride is the one on the far left… Not the center.


This is my apartment as of yesterday evening.

Packing was going super well… NOT.

I did a last minute load of laundry so I wouldn’t have to wear clothes I hated all week, and when I went down to pull the load from the dryer it was still all wet! I had no more quarters (I had to scrounge around just to find enough for that load!) so my only option was to hang everything around my apartment and hope for the best…

The rest of my packing, however, went a little bit better. With all my food intolerances it’s always best to bring my own snacks and things when I travel. Luckily, my parents will have a lot of food for me when I get to CO on Sunday, but while I’m in SC and on the plane, I thought it would be best to bring a few things.

First, here are my supplements, some containers to bring almond milk places with me, and some running fuel! I’m hoping to at the very least do a long run in CO, and maybe one Saturday in SC (the wedding is in the evening). I’m also bringing my Camelbak pack for hikes and long runs! The joys of checking luggage…

Anyone see a special somebody hiding in the photo’s background? Yep. Still alive, and 1.5 years old! And don’t worry, my brother will be coming over a couple times to feed him while I’m gone.

For some “just in case” snacks, I packed a few granola bars and a big bag of raw almonds. I also brought a few slices of Udi’s GF whole grain bread.

My flight is at 11:45am, so I packed up a lunch to bring with me on the plane. I’ve never brought fresh food like this, so I hope it’s not a problem in security! We’ll find out… In the mix: pinto beans, okra, carrots and cherry tomatoes mixed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I hope to also find an apple or something in the grocery store. I wasn’t thinking yesterday and ate my last apple as a snack at school. I didn’t want to make another trip to the grocery store, so I’ll just have to make due!

I’ll be renting a car in SC to drive the hour and 15 minutes from the airport to Mary’s hometown, so I’ll be able to go to the grocery store for snacks and other food while I’m there. I like the idea of  having a car! Car = freedom!

This morning my plan is to hit the gym for a workout on my Best Body Bootcamp schedule, get home, showered, eat breakfast and catch a bus, then the L to the airport! Cross your fingers that I don’t have any issues and arrive safely and on time!

*Edited to add: I decided after walking out of my apartment and towards the gym that I was crazy sore and if I wanted to get in a good long run tomorrow, I needed to make today a rest day and do the Bootcamp workout Sunday. So I headed back inside, did 1 round of the circuit for today’s workout (it was all body weight) and a few crunches and hit the shower!


What’s your favorite snack to pack when flying?


Do you have a good story from when you met your significant other? Or someone you know?
