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 Open-mouthed smile.  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!! Open-mouthed smile (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 Open-mouthed smile

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 Open-mouthed smile  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 Open-mouthed smile


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 Winking smile

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 Sad smile – I’m dying for a home cooked meal!
