Hey friends! How was your weekend? We had a pretty big one over here. Over the last few weeks, I feel like I have been doing lots of complaining about being busy on the blog and not really any elaborating as to why. I want to apologize for that, I usually like to be more forthcoming about things, but I get a little superstitious about some things and I was afraid saying something would jinx it. So what have we been working on?
We bought a new house!
We started moving into our new house on Friday and it has been a whirlwind of packing, moving, unpacking, sleeplessness and emotions. We are so happy though. While most of the weekend was spent on move stuff. Doing chores, cleaning and packing/unpacking can be pretty all-consuming, we did a few highlights I wanted to share.
One of the biggest highlights was all the help and support we had in moving, which we are so incredibly grateful for. We definitely could not have gotten everything done without the friend and family support. My step-dad, brother, brother-in-law and a good friend all assisted in some of the heavy lifting moving. My mom also watched the kids while we moved and set up beds the first night and sent us both dinner, and the fun goodies pictured above.
While most of the week was all hustle and bustle, we slowed down a bit to enjoy a family happy hour on our new back porch, and then took a walk around the new neighborhood Saturday evening. Notice the tiny hand, the little miss loved that spinach dip on the plate and was dipping and eating as fast as she could.
I had debated skipping my 40 Day Challenge meeting with everything that was going on but ended up taking a break to go. I am so, so glad I did. It was nice to hear how everyone’s experience with the fruit fast went and we had the most amazing yin yoga session. I tend to convince myself I’m not as into yin yoga and rarely take a class. But then when I finally make it to a yin class, I am like yeah that was exactly what I needed. I left feeling so relaxed and de-stressed, it really shifted my whole perspective from where I was prior to class.
Sunday was mainly spent unpacking and trying to figure out what goes where. We did take a mid-morning break for some donuts though. The top right one got a little smudged, but it has the coolest, sparkly Mardi Gras inspired icing.
As we get more settled, I am hoping to have more workouts and recipes to share with you guys. I miss creating in the kitchen and gym and am excited to get back to it.
So tell me, what’s new with you? What did you do this past weekend?
