Life In A Pod

June 25, 2010

It’s here!!!! WHEW. Sigh of relief. Now we just have to fill it!

Look what else is here!! Mom + Dad. They came to say goodbye to the house [and help us pack!]

Kanz – with a Bora Bora tattoo he found while packing!!

I had a few sips of this guy during cocktail hour – Matt drank most of it.

After some chatting, we put together the most lax dinner our house has seen.

Pantry chili, Karen-made salad (which was very nice!) and dinner at the kitchen table on the last 5 paper plates I own.

IMG_5706 (640x427)

The chili was great – all pantry/freezer staples!! Beans, okra, peas, Applegate Farm’s Organic Cocktail Franks, Diced tomatoes, Organic Valley Cheddar. Matt served the bowls and I could only fit about half of mine.

Topped with plain Voskos! Thick, rich and awesome.

IMG_5718 (640x427)

Served with some Tostitos fresh from Frito Lay – one of the Healthy Living Summit sponsors :)

IMG_5709 (640x427)

Karen brought a great green salad with veggies and a homemade dressing.

This is a giant Golden Rabbit bowl now available in my shop!

IMG_5713 (640x427)

Served with some iced tea Karen made

IMG_5716 (640x427)

IMG_5722 (640x427)

I also had a few sips of this Chipotle Ale – delish!!

IMG_5721 (640x427)

Our lizard friend said goodbye!

IMG_5723 (640x427)

Evening entertainment!!

IMG_5734 (640x427)

IMG_5733 (640x427)

Dad + Mom + Karen [Matt was already asleep!]

IMG_5727 (640x427) IMG_5731 (640x427) IMG_5729 (640x427)

IMG_5732 (640x427)

And meeee! Vanilla bean, taro + pineapple with fruit, chocochips, coconut and honey!

IMG_5737 (640x427)

Mom and I just exhausted ourselves packing the kitchen.

Dad is VERY worried about the pod. We really don’t know if stuff is going to fit. Not sure what the contingency plan is…

7 Stacie @ Imperfectly Healthy June 25, 2010 at 9:39 pm

I love that Matt put on the tattoo! Too funny!

I’m so jealous of the huge frozen yogurt places I’ see on all of these blogs! There’s not a big one like that where I live! :(


8 Veggielady4life June 25, 2010 at 9:40 pm

I love that self-serve yogurt place you guys go to. So fun! Much luck with the Pod! I hope you figure out a plan that works!


9 Jenny June 25, 2010 at 9:44 pm

Good luck fitting everything into the pod!


10 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) June 25, 2010 at 9:45 pm

I had some friends just use a pod to move across country. It is like a Jenga puzzle getting it all in, but I am sure you guys will be able to get it done! Good luck!


11 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is June 25, 2010 at 9:52 pm

That is a lot of yogurt!


12 Hannah June 25, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Oooh, your husband’s so hardcore with his tattoo! 😛 Good luck fitting everything into the pod – you’ll have to sustain yourself with lots of froyo to get through it, I think!


13 Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 25, 2010 at 9:54 pm

The touch part’s over! Now to tackle the puzzle of fitting everything into that POD….hmmm


14 Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm

15 Heather June 25, 2010 at 9:57 pm

16 Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] June 25, 2010 at 9:59 pm

What is taro!? Good luck this weekend =)

21 lynn (The Actors Diet) June 26, 2010 at 12:08 am

22 Kerri June 26, 2010 at 12:30 am

I’ve got to remember to try one of those yogurt places this summer.


23 Lisa @ bakebikeblog June 26, 2010 at 12:37 am

25 Freya @ Brit Chick Runs June 26, 2010 at 3:26 am

Awh that’s sweet your parents are helping you pack – are you going to be very far away from them?


26 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine June 26, 2010 at 6:51 am

What a lovely last dinner with your parents! So nice of them to help you pack. Hope all goes well with the pod!


27 Cassie @ Tasteful Tales June 26, 2010 at 7:28 am

Good Luck with the move! No worries I’ll say a prayer that everything fits for you!


28 Samantha June 26, 2010 at 7:53 am

Rogue beer! Another proud product of Ashland Or. (originally)
Do you have a garage full of stuff too? I bet it will all fit….if not an additional u-haul maybe?

30 A Teenage Gourmet (Sami) June 26, 2010 at 8:09 am

Kath! I don’t know if you saw my post or not, but I just broke my precious baby spoon too. It’s very ironic. :(


31 Kath June 26, 2010 at 8:11 am

34 Marissa June 26, 2010 at 9:07 am

Mmm, I’m going to steal your dad’s froyo! I’m a chocoholoic, heheh. I love when great dinners come together from odds and ends, its so strangely satisifying!

How fun to have a last supper with the family.


37 southern momma June 26, 2010 at 10:34 am

Hi, Kath!

I love reading your blog. I am one of your older readers so my “momma” instincts light up every now and then. I hope you will be able to take some time off after you get this move done and have some SUT*. Good luck with the move!

“Seriously UNPRODUCTIVE Time.


38 Julie June 26, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Hey, Kath!

I see that you will be at the Healthy Living Summit in Chicago. I am a HUGE fan of your blog and I live in Chicago. Will you be doing any meet and greets while you are up here!?!?!

Good luck with the move!!


39 Kath June 27, 2010 at 2:05 pm

Definitely! We’ll post them on our blogs :)
