When is it socially acceptable...

To eat lunch?? My stomach is growling, but it's only 10:38am. I ate breakfast, but apparently my body doesn't care. Homegirl must be craving more sustenance than 32oz of water, an English muffin with peanut butter, and a glass of skim milk. Growth spurt maybe?

I didn't pack a lunch today, so I'm going to have to venture out for some quality quick food (I refuse to call it fast food because I don't patronize any of the big fast food chains like McDs, BK, or Wendy's). It has to be within walking distance because, at this lovely university at which I am now working, if you move your car, you lose your spot for LIFE! (Well, just for the day, but it might as well be for life.)

A quick Google search of nearby restaurants gives me the following options:

Subway. BW3s. Jimmy John's. Donato's. Noodles & Company. Domino's. Panda Express. Annnnd a doughnut shop.

What's a hungry momma to do?!!>?!!?#@$?! I don't want a pizza. Or a sandwich. Or a doughnut.

(This post is dedicated to Jess, Kristen, and Stephanie, who told me last night that reading my blog keeps them entertained at work. So happy to provide this service for you gals!)


  1. I always kept a snack drawer in my desk. Throw in some nuts, instant oatmeal packets, granola bars, pretzels, peanut butter, beef jerky (if you're feeling sassy) and some various tea options. Quick and easy and just enough to keep you from wanting to gnaw through your desk at 10:38 a.m.!

  2. During pregnancy lunch can occur WHENEVER YOU WANT.
    I vote Jimmy Johns.

  3. Mmmm, Jimmy Johns! I had my first stomach rumblings this morning around 11. And I ate breakfast at 9:30. No, I am not pregnant. The only reason I wait until noon to eat lunch is to make the afternoon go faster. True story.
