I just want to give a little update here on the last two weeks while we were moving and such...
The week before we packed up and changed homes John went to Arizona to do some recruiting for the Edge. Can you believe he went to the Grand Canyon without me? I've never been there, and it is safe to say that my jealousy was at an all-time high. But look at this beautiful picture. I plan on having him do a little guesty post soon to share all the beautiful shots he got. Man, you can see God in those rocks. I swear it.
I also did some cooking. I've been having a hard time getting shots of my food at the new place. Out windows sit north and south so I miss out on all the beautiful lighting for photos like I had at the old place. But I'm bound and determined to figure it out. I've been trying to try my hand at squash. So far I've worked with butternut and acorn. Of course butternut is a favorite of mine, but trying acorn squash was a first and I can't say I'm too impressed. This here's a butternut squash vegan mac and cheeze. Recipe to come tomorrow!
Two weeks ago we packed all our bags and boxes and said goodbye to our first home together. Moving was a whirlwind. I don't know if you remember that crazy storm that blew through the southeast two weeks ago, but we got all of it. We had plans to move on a Saturday morning, but after looking at the forecast we decided to cram it all in to a late Friday night move. We owe a big "thank you" to everyone that helped us pack up in the drizzle and carry boxes through the deep dark of night.
We were happy we did it in the end, we set up our whole house by Saturday night and enjoyed a beautiful Sunday together celebrating our first anniversary!
Sunday morning we went to church and then to one of our favorite restaurants, Jason's Deli! (Healthy and cheap!) We picked up some things for the new house and then I got to work on a special meal for us. I made a Turkey Cranberry Wreath (one of my favorite Pampered Chef recipes), a greens salad, a homemade cherry pie, and opened a bottle of my new favorite sangria!
I'll spare you details of the rest of the night, but let's just say it was beautiful, and special, and exactly what I had in mind.
This past week I've been settling into the new place and working every day. John has been out of town recruiting in Chicago all week and I'm so so ready for him to come home today! He lands in Orlando in approximately 2.5 hours and I couldn't be more excited!
That's about it! I can't wait to give you that mac and cheeze recipe tomorrow and hopefully a little tour of our new casa on Wednesday!
Question of the Day:
What have YOU been doing the last two weeks?
