Hello lovelies! I hope you are having an amazing weekend!
Yesterday we slept in. It felt SO good! So earlier this week we got a new roof. It has been a long time coming. So many projects, but they must be done! Anyways, the roofers accidentally punctured through the roof, so yesterday they came and repaired it and painted the whole ceiling in the living room/upstairs. It looks perfect. While they were painting, I took Brutus on a run. It wasn’t too cold, so we had a nice time. The rest of the night was relaxing and family time. =)
This morning we woke up semi-early and headed to Waffle House for breakfast (bacon, egg, and cheese on raisin toast). I took the pup out for a bit; man was it COLD! Still is, but then again, it is January. A little later, I went to the gym and got my Flow on with my favorite Bodyflow instructor, Lauren. The rest of the day has been super chill and lazy. Snuggling under the blankets with my girls is always the best part of the day ❤
Things are coming together nicely in the new kitchen. All that is left is to get the pantry fixed, plumbing for the sink, fridge, dishwasher, and disposal (major), install dishwasher and disposal, painting ceiling, put all the handles on the cabinets, and a few small odds and ends before cooking can begin. I can see the end of the tunnel! I have helped a bit here and there, but I have to give all the credit to my amazing husband who has done most all of the work himself. I know he wants it to be perfect, so I am trying to be very patient over here.
I am super excited to cook again for my family. The girls are so cute; they keep saying they want me to cook meals and not go out/get take-out so much ever again. I have to say I agree! Going out every once in a while is a nice treat, but it does get old fast.
I also don’t think I have used my microwave and toaster oven more in all the years I have had them than this past couple of months. Some of our favorites have been french toast sticks, waffles, Super Pretzels, corn dogs (I love the Morning Star Veggie ones), popcorn, and fried cheese sticks. My favorite trick was when I made grilled cheese sandwiches and cheese quesadillas in the waffle iron. I am a genius.
Here are a few pics of some fun, food, and family =) Have a great night!
