READING…Yes, Please by Amy Poehler. Love her.

LISTENING…to Serial. I know I’m late to the game, but whoa. I cannot stress enough how good it is. Serial had me hooked from the very first episode and kept me totally entertained while packing.

EATING…way too much takeout. Gross, I know. My saving grace has been the occasional piece of avocado toast. I have been toasting the bread on the stove top with a little coconut oil, and then spreading mashed avocado over the top with a dash of sea salt.

DRINKING…homemade ginger tea. My aunt shared her recipe with me. I used a large pot and filled it about 3/4 of the way with water, and then I chopped 2 apples (I used organic Fuji apples), grated about 1/4 cup of fresh ginger, and then added lemon slices (1 lemon). I let that simmer on the stove for about 4 hours. When it’s done, I used a strainer to transfer it to a pitcher. I served it with a little honey, piping hot. While I was sick, this was my saving grace.

SUCCEEDING…in moving! Sorry, but this is huge. I’m going to continue to pat ourselves on the back for being in the new house. As of now, we are totally moved into our master bedroom, master bath, and kitchen. Everything else is a little bit of a mess, but we are getting there, one box at a time.

FAILING…at eating well. When you have a lot going on and little access to the kitchen, it’s really hard to eat well. I’m getting back on the cooking train though!

LOVING…the new house. It feels so cozy and I cannot get over the view when I wake up in the morning. We are so fortunate.

WAITING…to buy new furniture. We have bought a new sofa because we needed it, but other than that, we are holding off on any big purchases. For now, window shopping is where it’s at.

WEARING…leggings like they’re going out of style. I’ve been in need of stretchy pants all day, everyday with this move.

Lastly,Β a huge thank you to my Dad. He just left last week, and it was so great having him here. I know the dogs are totally comfortable in their new home now, thanks to him spending so much time making sure they adjusted well.

Happy Monday!

    Hello Britt, Glad to read your new post and that you are settling into your new dream home. Do you have any other pictures of your new home you are ready to post? Also, what did your Dad do for the dogs? Build a fence? Or make a dog house? xo

      Hi Janet! So nice to hear from you. The new house is great, and the pups love it. Dad actually just got them settled by creating a great routine for them. He spent a lot of time in the backyard with them, playing and exploring the yard, so they felt totally comfortable and happy here. We talked about building a fence, but that will a big job for the spring or summer. The property is 1.5 acres, so this fence will be long! Yikes. Anyhow, we already discussed maybe him coming out a couple times this summer instead of just once, so hopefully that works out. I hope all is well with you. xo

      Hi Janet! Everything is fine, great, in fact! After the move, we were swamped with getting settled in and then it’s one thing after another and then I got pregnant. I’m pregnant with twin boys and due in April. We are all doing great. I just haven’t had time to write. I miss it and want to get back to it though. I hope all is well with you! xo

        Janet
