12 Hour Road Trip

I woke up bright and early since I was determined to at least start the day off right. With vegetables of course! I made scrambled eggs with one egg, steamer broccoli, and the last of the Cheddar cheese! That’s right I found some buried in the fridge! The cheese totally makes scrambled eggs for me. I also enjoyed a toasted English muffin with Tofutti cream cheese and orangle marmalade on one, strawberry jam on the other. Love this savory breakfast!

Next up on starting a travel day off right: exercise! One hour of stationary biking later and I was ready for me adventure.

M&Ms were enjoyed during the next 9 hours on the road. Speaking of roads, the moment we passes in to Oregon they were completely clear! We kind of

For dinner I had a few handfuls of these Target brand Blue Corn Flaxseee chips! They were tasty and salty.

We made it to our destination, chatted with Chase’s friend Mark, and went to bed!
