What. A. Day.
Started at 5AM. I actually woke up at 4:51 with excitement!!
We packed our toiletries and made a cup of coffee and were on the road by 6.
Breakfast was eaten around 7 and was this cool cereal mix called Rokit Fuel I was sent a while ago to review. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to use it, and this was certainly it.
Early in the morning I mixed the Spice Cookie flavor with half a cup of milk and a banana, hoping for an overnight oats effect. You can eat the Rokit raw or mix it with water in its own pouch, or milk, or heat it up. Very convenient for traveling.
2 hours later it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that good either 🙁 Kind of tasted stale to me, and I thought the ginger was too strong. Matt mixed his with water in a water bottle and I would not recommend that. Some kind of milk is definitely preferred.
10AM snack – rest stop #2
Some of this as well:
And I figured I needed some hydration and electrolytes in prep for the big move. I don’t really know a thing about Vitamin Water but at first glance it looked like a good choice for my goals. This flavor was great, but too sweet. I cut it with some water.
5 hours of driving went by really fast – and look what we found on our street! OUR STUFF!
<3 I missed it so much!!
We unloaded and unloaded and unloaded and unloaded and unloaded and unloaded and unloaded and unloaded
And then stopped for tinned fish, naturally. What else would you want to eat for fuel when you have no kitchen!? We debated sandwiches and the Whole Foods salad bar, but herring seemed like a better fit.
We LOVEDDDD this flavor of herring!! To bad we don’t have a TJ’s here in Cville yet!!
There was no water in the house, so we had to make do with hand sanitizer. I’ve also been saving these wipes since the Foodbuzz festival last November!! They came in perfect handy.
Because we had no water due to a delayed utility truck, we were forced to drink beer. FORCED!!
Just forked right in with some hot sauce. If you like seafood, you will love herring!! Like mussels and tuna meshed together.
On the side, cantaloupe from Karen’s and a peach from Bella Eats!!
Plus Food Should Taste Good Chocolate chips, which we decided should be called "Mole" (even though they don’t have spices in them) and they are really good!
Chocolate and fish? A winning combo. I promise.
Andrea was so kind to stop by and say hello – with local peaches and homemade jam!
Followed by Jess, who came by to greet us and bring some of the biggest muffins I’ve ever seen!! I didn’t get around to tasting one yet (my hands were so dirty!) but I can’t wait to taste one at breakfast!!

This room is the least disastrous right now!
I could NOT have survived the day without the help of Anna and Crystal!!! New friends to the rescue. They were totally awesome and saved the day for sure. We got most of the kitchen put together. Whew!
Matt and I have a (one time) tradition of getting pizza and drinking wine the first night in our new house. Appropriately, we picked up some pizza from the new local station shop just a half mile away (Matt walked to get it!) and drank a local wine we’ve loved from the past.
x2 for me!
Salad was just brought from Karen’s in a ziplock and assembled. Dressed in Garlic Gold! I think I got the girls hooked 😉
Spicy Pepperoni + Jalapeno
LOVED the pizza! My favorite kind of dough. I had one of each flavor.
We just finished putting together our bed. Sheets are on. I am showered. Air conditioning is now on. My feet are aching. And I cannot wait to go to sleep!!
