So here in the wonderful state of Maine, Autumn is already starting. The temperature drops down into the 40’s at night and their is a crispness to the air that I am feeling a lot more than I was feeling last year. I remember being able to wear short sleeve shirts well into October and feeling fairly warm with only a sweatshirt on even though it was 20 degrees outside. I used to think I was pretty bad ass for being able to handle the cold as such, but now I realized I was just extremely overweight. This autumn has a completely different feel. I am absolutely freezing! Where did all my insulation go? Why am I no longer a cold-fighting bad ass? I am definitely going to have to to some fall clothing shopping and try to figure out this whole layers thing because that is definitely what I am needing right about now.
Also, does anyone else get extremely hungry when the weather gets colder? Because I just feel like eating EVERYTHING. It doesn’t matter what it is. I just chowed down on an apple and some peanut butter. I just want to eat constantly. So I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Or maybe I am just crazy.
Luckily I will be getting one last taste of summer because the husband and I are going on an epic road trip starting Thursday! My brother and his wife are having a baby shower on Saturday at their home in Virginia Beach, and we have decided to go down and celebrate! Yee haw! I am so excited to get to hang out with my brother! But it is going to be a very long trip… 14+ hours hanging out with my love! Hopefully it won’t be too traumatic. I don’t have a lot of city driving experience. There is going to be a lot of coffee and 80’s rock. Be excited!
So here are some pictures of what I have been eating and seeing lately!
Now can people give me some suggestions for some yummy but healthy road trip food?
