Happy Late Memorial Day! I hope you had a great weekend with friends and family and remembering those who served <3!
Our weekend was great but exhausting! We finally moved into our new house, so we’re simultaneously trying to renovate (still), unpack, and continue to work two full time jobs . I think this is going to be a leeeetle bit of a crazy month!
We didn’t get internet until TODAY so here’s some recap of the first few days back at work/the weekend… (at completely random times…). I also had mooooooore pizza and hamburgers than should be consumed by a normal person…
First up: Brittany’s Bachelorette Party starting at Dave and Busters!! (with spooky red eye!)
French Toast Buckwheat Bake – of COURSE I used the oven as soon as we got here. I missed cooking! Seriously, I over-make these because they are INSANE
Clif Bar Mojo
Chocolate Overnight Oats: 1/3 cup rolled oats, ½ smashed banana, 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1T chia seeds, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ T unsweetened cocoa powder. Topped with a little blob of Almond butter and Love Grown Foods Cranberry Pecan Granola
Snack : ½ banana ½ Tropical Fruit Tart Larabar, ½ Banana bread larabar
While running errands I picked up some lunch from WF: brown lentils, pineapple coconut black rice, spiced tofu, marinara sauce, bell peppers, mushrooms, and miso kale (and a few pita chips not pictured LD). AWESOME eating some healthy food after the past weekend (BBQs, take out, restaurants, no home cooking, pizza…etc

There was another spin class in there as well… sometime over the weekend (honestly, I can barely remember what TODAY is ) I’m just trying to get through the week unscathed
I’ve got more pics of the house I’ll hopefully get to show tomorrow – we’ve made some more progress in the past few days However, it’s currently 8:30 and I’ve not a.) eaten dinner b.) unpacked enough clothes to get to work tomorrow, or c.) actually taken the pictures. Tomorrow I’ll s-l-o-w-l-y be catching up
Hey!! LAST day of the week – finally!! This be another “last post” for a few days… we’re officially moving over this holiday weekend so I’ll be without a computer/internet/electronic capabilities for a while.
We’ve been making decent progress on the house – not too much visual difference from last post because we’ve been packing, going to Lowe’s, going to Home Depot, painting boards..etc. More stuff will go up over the next week or so however. I will say though that my quads are absolutely annihilating me. They are SO sore from laying hardwood on Monday that it hurts to even poke the muscles haha. I’m officially off of strength training for a little while
Here’s a peek into the past few days – I’d say food hasn’t been horrible, but I haven’t been able to cook anything for over a week – I’m dying for a home cooked meal!
