A Day in the Life

{me happy when me have food. clearly.}

We're house-sitting for my parents this week, and it looks a little something like this


6:17 Daniel leaves for work
8:20 I wake up. Carpe Diem.
8:21 Check all major social networking sites. Carpe Diem?
9:00 Shower. Makeup. Clothes. Now I'm seizing the day.
9:40 I'm ready! Off I gooooooo.

10:00 Realize I am stranded. All day. Alone. No car.
10:05 No worries. A lazy day full of reading, blogging, and eating sounds divine.
11:00 reading: check. blogging: check.
11:01 eating time.
11:03 Staring at empty cupboards. Ahhh, that's why my parents left us grocery money.
11:15 Gear up for a few more hours of fasting.
12:18 Must. Eat. Something.
12:25 Polish off 1/2 a can of baked beans. Out of sheer desperation.
5:30 The last several hours have been a blur. Fast. Slow. Oh the hunger. Oh the inhumanity.
5:32 Daniel is finally home. I'm sprawled on the bed. A can of beans on the nightstand. Not a good look for anyone.
5:45 We are both indecisive about dinner. Stay in or go out?
6:10 Still weighing the pros and cons of our options.
6:27 Daniel gets distracted by ESPN.
6:30 I throw a pillow at his face.
6:31 Taco Salad sounds good to him.
6:32 Not to me.
6:33 Orange Chicken sounds good to him.
6:34 Nope.
6:35 I don't know what sounds good to me.
6:40 How about an orange chicken taco salad. with chocolate ice cream. can someone deliver that?
7:05 I am beyond. Just beyond.
7:20 Grocery store it is.
7:40 Finally in the store, pushing around a cart full of chocolate milk, peach juice, cookies, and avocados.
7:50 Wandering aimlessly up and down the aisles.
8:00 Over it. To Red Robin we go.
8:13 Parking lot is full. 30 minute wait.
8:14 I almost give up. Can't do it. A can of beans, Daniel. A can. of. beans.
8:15 Two words snap me back into reality. Bottomless Fries.
8:16 I can do this.
9:35 Belly is filling up with fries, chicken, and strawberry lemonades.

If you read this and it sounds a bit dramatic, well...it's cause it was.
And then Daniel had to run out and grab me TUMS from the nearest gas station at 1:30 in the morning.

Stud. Hubs.

Holy moly. That is horrible. :(

This should teach you a valuable lesson: Never travel without your own stockpile of snacks.

Couldn't you have had something delivered for lunch, though, if you could have had it delivered for dinner?

Lauren Margaret said...

omg - I completely understand how serious this is! also thanks for reminding me that I need to buy Tums. Sunday's marathon of buffalo chicken dip followed by chocolate ice cream + sprinkles did not make my tummy happy ;)

Shannon said...

ahhh!!! Being stranded is so annoying, i totally know how you felt!!! maybe convince your mom to grow snacks in their backyard!!

SaffaKate said...

WOAH! I would NEVER survive.

laurenjeanallece said...

the actual incidents of this day: awful. the timeline of the incidents of this day: fantastic.

love your blog, completely dig your writing and style :)

and that you're a portland gal too. major points.

Mandy said...

Wow I can imagine this HARD!! I feel for you girl!

Thanks for sharing your dramatic story :-)

♥ Mandy (MENNEPEN)

Emily said...

haha oh my goodness I am so sorry. Im not pregnant and i cant decide what to eat half the time so dont feel bad :)

Sarah said...

Haha you are busy people! I can totally relate. It's busy, but I kinda love it. Life never gets bored. I love your face in all your food pictures haha. You are hilarious.

BTW I'm guest posting about mommy fashion over at The Short and the Sweet of It this morning. You should stop by if you get a second =)

katie [the bright life] said...

I can't believe you survived on a can of beans!!! I seriously can't go more than 3 hours without food, unless I'm sleeping. You deserve a major pat on the back for this. And now I want some bottomless fries...mmmm. Xo, Katie

Sarah Frills4Thrills said...

Oh my goodness you are hilar!

Emma Frances said...

Haha. This is hilarious! I would be dramatic after a day without food too!

Jennifer Rod said...

this is sad. i dunno if i would have survived that long. you are brave. :)

mary said...

Ohhhhmygosh, Bonnie! Aren't you like 7 months preggers?! Ohhhh my goodness. That stressed me OUT! Please eat until you fall asleep now! YOu deserve it! Yikes! xox!

Anonymous said...

Wow Bon Bon. I just might have become a monster by 8pm.

Parents always have a stockpile of food. Poor baby bean. Glad it is over.

Ale said...

Bahaha. The sad thing is this would be insanely tragic for me and I'm not even pregnant!! We always have to make sure I'm going to be fed at some point or I turn into this crazy woman when I'm hungry. Ridiculous.

Melu103 said...

haha what a day my love!

there is nothing worst
than a woman hungry ..


haha have a great day hun!


Catita said...

woow that is a lot of food for a tiny girl! but us little girls eat a lot right!?

SarahAnn said...

Shocking. I would have SURELY died.

Ashley Slater said...

bah hahahah.........you might be my twin. except, I act this dramatic about food and dinner even when I have had a full breakfast and lunch. yep.


Rissy said...

hahahah this reminds me so much of my brother... he is so stinkin skinny because if there's nothing readily available to eat, he just won't. I need to adopt that attitude.


Maggy said...

ohh nooo, I have totally been there but PREGNANT - that's a whole new level of impressive. Sounds like a commercial for Red Robin :)

Daryl said...

You and I have a stunningly similar relationship with food. ;)

This was hilarious!

<3 Daryl
Roots, Wings, and Other Things.

Kaysie said...

HOLY PIZZA! Those look delish

Mish Lovin' Life said...

It's nice to know someone else in this world appreciates the fries at Red Robin...
I'm not preggers...but one might think so when I'm eating that deliciousness.

Jessica Holly said...

Is it bad if I'm not pregnant....and have still had maybe one or two (or several) experiences eerily similar to this one?

Young and Fabulous said...

Bon Bon

when can we hang out? Like, for realsies?

what an epic day. And i love the foodie pics haha So I esp the social networking catch up bright an early (i do that too)

and your grocery trip sounds just like Kurt and I's...hahah we are so indecisive


Nicole said...

oooh my god- I just spit out a chunk of my apple pie when I read about the can of beans on your nightstand. Hahahaha hilarious- and yet so sorry you had to go with a can of beans and ended the day with tums:)

Angela [Simply Simple Me] said...

It is official. I am in love with this post. I also felt your pain while reading it.

Lauren said...

AH! That's awful! I'm sorry you had to go all day w/o eating anything besides beans! I would die! I have to eat all the time... I can't even imagine starving all day when I'm eating for two! You're a trooper! :) I love this post!

wildchild said...

Brigette Olmos-Arreola said...

Megan said...

Hahahaha. Ahhhh, Bon. How did you make it all day on a can of beans?!

Anonymous said...

Thank goodness for that can of beans!!

Anna said...

And I don't think I could eat half a can of beans even if it was the last thing on earth to eat.. just does NOT sound appealing.. hahaha

Courtney B said...

I'm not even pregnant and I'd be almost dead from lack of food! You are amazing :)
We had Red Robin Saturday night... waited in line for over 30 minutes. All because of those fries.
