Home Is Where The Light Is

Exciting news on the home front!

But first, you have to get through my eats.


Breakfast fast fantabulous.


Oats rarely fail me.


This is my typical banana + flax oats, with blueberries stirred in at the end.


I love it when the blueberries explode in my mouth! 😀


Can’t forget a dollop of PB!

Mid-morning, I had an entire chocolate bar.

Yeah, that’s right.

Don’t hate.

It was milk chocolate with almonds.

Lunch was leftover tortellini with venison links, bell peppers, onion.

Dare I say, this was better as a leftover? The flavors melded nicely!

(Lordy! I sure can tell the difference in photo quality between my Nikon at breakfast and my little Casio at lunch!)

For an afternoon snack, I mobbed on some super sweet grape tomatoes.


I actually wished I had had a bigger bag of them. Work was pretty slow today though I did have good conversation with my new boss. Looks like I’m still on pace to start 8/2! Exciting!

For dinner, the lazy bug bit me so I threw together massive salads for the two of us.



Grape Tomatoes
Kidney Beans
Parmesan Cheese
Balsamic Vinaigrette


That is one mean salad.


Mmmm… veggies!

Big boy bowl:




AND the big news!


We got the house that we ultimately decided would work best for us! It’s the one that is more modern and updated on the inside! Here are a few pictures. I don’t want to show too many because the tenant and all her stuff was in it and I want to give her some sense of privacy even though she doesn’t even know this blog exists. Yes, I’m weird.

Anyway, here it is!

We love the skylights and huge windows.


Washer & Dryer is a must!


Dual head showers? Yes, please!




AND another exciting happening is that we may be getting my mother-in-laws dog! There is a decent yard for this cute pup!

We are soooo very excited! Pip is a Retriever/Labrador mix. She’s 8 years old. She’s adorbs. Jodus’ mom travels quite a bit and doesn’t really want to get rid of her but hates having to kennel her. It’d be perfect to keep her in the family!

Warning – I will become crazy dog lady.

We are moving out of our place on 7/31, parking the U-Haul at a friends and staying the night then moving into our new place 8/1. Then new job starts 8/2! It’s going to be a whirlwind!
