Just A Big Kid

Sometimes, I wish I could go back to Kindergarten!

Remember nap time, recess, fun snacks, and no tests? That’s the life right there…oh and it sort of describes my afternoon!

I ate a big girl lunch of leftover chili with Kashi crackers. This chili recipe is so amazing. I’m usually not a huge fan of random combos, but this might have changed my whole outlook. No joke.


Later, I snacked on a pear while I studied for Environmental process design…(aka poop sanitation class).


I then proceeded to doze off at my desk for approx 2.5 hours. I accidently slept through my 6:00 class, and woke up around 6:30 pm. OOPS!!! 

Nap time! It’s funny how in Kindergarten I HATED nap time, but now I desperately wish I had it!! Oh the Irony.

After nap time, I made some ants on a log- celery, PB, and raisins. I wanted to keep with my elementary school theme.


Why don’t I make this more often? It’s actually quite yummy!


Oh, did I mention that I also rocked my youth choir t-shirt from 3rd grade today? It’s the softest most comfy thing ever. I love it!


For dinner, I wanted to use up the eggplant I bought the other day at the farmer’s market. I was REALLY craving carbs, and I was pretty hungry this afternoon so I went with pasta!


I cubed half an eggplant, and sauted it in a pan with a drizzle of EVOO  and minced garlic. I then added in a can of organic diced tomatoes. Meanwhile, Jason made some whole wheat thin spaghetti and grilled chicken on the George Foreman grill.


We made some extras to eat for leftovers this week! The meal combo turned out quite tasty!

Jason isn’t an eggplant fan, so he left that out of his, and used cheese instead. LOL. Typical Jason.


Even though I napped today, I’m still pretty tired. I think I need more than 6.5  hours of sleep at night, especially with all the running I do!  Maybe I will add snack breaks as well as nap and recess into my daily routine.

It’s been a good day.


What do you miss most about being a kid? I miss playing outside with the neighborhood kids, making obstacle courses, riding bikes, and going to dance class.

P.S. Dark chocolate Peanut m&m’s are addicting! 😀

  6. SO WEIRD…i was definitely having one of those “I wish I was back in 6th grade” moments today too. I was sitting in my journalism class and just kept thinking of how I missed being so young and care free and only consumed of thoughts about basic spanish, PE, and art class. Those were the days…too bad you don’t realize that when you are actually in 6th grade. I also miss being home and having my mom cook meals for me when I have a lot going on. Aghh, the good ol’ days!

  7. Oh Megan I love naps. Naps are my friend, they are warm and delightful. I have this theory that if ever I’m having a really bad day, like the worst possible, if I have a nap that I can start my day over and feel better. I don’t get to do it that often but it usually works.

  8. This post makes me miss the smell of crayons and coloring books. I have an overwhelming urge to go color something right now!

  9. I miss playing outside with my neighborhood friend until the street lights would come on..we would act like we were a band and do shows on the pavilion near the pool LOL..what dorks, haha 🙂

  10. Ack! Sorry you slept through class! hehe, I used to do that too. I miss spending my summer’s outdoors with ”
    nothing to do” all day besides play, play, play!

  11. omg dark chocolate m&m’s?? why i have i not found these!!

    i miss nap time, playing tag, having a summer to just play with friends & go to camp, gosh i miss sleep away camp!

  12. i can’t believe you would still fit into a t-shirt you’ve had since 3rd grade! you must be tiny.

  13. Bahaha “poop sanitation”. That’s some interesting subject matter!

    Ick I HATE realizing I overslept for something…so stressful! At least you had a good attitude about it!

  14. I miss gold stars! I would have to say my favorite thing about Elementary school was playing 4 square at recess, I was incredibly disappointed when I discovered you didn’t do ‘those’ sort of things in middle school.

  15. I miss picnics with Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and goldfish, I miss bike rides around the neighborhood for hours and I miss the carefree spirit we had.
