Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: 24 meals in 24 hours, THE AFTERMATH

So when we finally got home from our culinary adventure (If you haven't read it yet, please click here), the work wasn't done yet. We still had to finish all of the blogging to get it up in time for the Foodbuzz deadline. We worked in shifts, with Lauren taking the first one (she's amazing!). She uploaded pictures and blogged, while I slept. She went to bed around 2am. She felt bad for me, and didn't wake me up because I looked "so peaceful," and I was lazy, so I didn't wake up until around 4am. I blogged, formatted things, and arranged the pictures until around 6am, then took a nap till 7:30, got up and worked on. Lauren woke up around 8, and started working again as well.
At around 12:30pm, we went to another culinary event called "Dinner at the Farm" at Prarie Fruit Farms, which was pretty awesome. It's a dinner on a farm (duh....), where they use fresh locally grown produce and meat (except flour, sugar....). We'll blog about it soon. Anyway, when that was finally done around 5pm or so, we went shopping (to maximize use of our car rental) because I needed a winter coat, and Lauren needed clothes for interviews. We finally got back home, finished stuff for the 24 meals thing, cleaned up ourselves and the house, and went to sleep by around 12 so that we could get up to move the car by 7 so we wouldn't get a ticket. We are going to sleep well tonight! Actually, Lauren will more so than me. I took naps today since I'm not in school! Anyway, that sums up our adventure!

Sleeping and working in shifts to get out the 24, 24, 24 blog post sounds real familiar! ;)

Your sacrifice was definitely worth it!

Kat-thanks. Mike's been getting the hang of posting and actually wrote the majority of them. I'm just the "picture-uploader"
