Less than 20 days until the official start of Spring, although it sure felt like spring the past few days. 🌸 I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and did something fun to celebrate leap day. Saturday was a fun day, but Kyle got sick Sunday morning, Leo was sick in the middle of the night, and it’s been a little hectic around here! Let’s just get started with this recap, and I’ll catch you up on all of it.
I didn’t have my headstart this morning. I’m usually out of bed by six and already on the couch blogging with coffee and two walked dogs before 7 am. I decided to sleep on the couch last night since Kyle was so sick. I didn’t want to put myself close enough to catch whatever he has. After sleeping on the most comfortable bed in the world (yes, still LOVE my Leesa) I forgot how awful couch sleeping was. And to top it off, I heard Leo getting sick from the top of the stairs all the way to the bottom. It was around 3:30, so I hurried and cleaned everything up, and then took him out for a walk just in case he needed to, well, you know.
Luckily, he woke up this morning feeling fine, and was acting normal on the walk and ate his food just as fast as he does every morning. But after I hit publish on this recap, I’m heading to CVS to pick up a few things for the sick men in this house.
On Thursday (I’ll go back to the full weekend-recap posts in the spring!), I cleaned and staged the entire house for the listing photos. I’ll share all the photos from that in a few weeks since I’ve never done a house tour. I was pretty happy with how they turned out, but it was WORK 😂
For my breakfast, I had my avocado toast on gluten-free bread, an over-medium egg, and plum with honey. After finishing up the house project, I had a frozen raspberry smoothie! I used unsweetened cashew milk, frozen raspberries, and chocolate Orgain protein powder. This was the first smoothie I’ve had in a long time, and it was delicious! I ended up having multiples of these throughout the week.
For dinner, I made roasted cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and mixed it in with my enchilada and chicken rice from the night before. I’m officially back on that cauliflower kick.
After dinner, I made MY FAVORITE oatmeal cream pie recipe. I always use the bob’s red mill gluten-free flour and earth balance butter to make them gluten & dairy-free, and you can’t even tell the difference. I made them for Kyle to bring into work, and they were a big hit 😊 These are my go-to recipe for impressing anyone! You can find the recipe here.
On Friday morning, I had my last avocado (refusing to buy more so I can force myself to eat something different 😆) with my gluten-free toast and some fresh fruit with honey. Friday night was so relaxing. We made chicken wings and salad and then watched our show. I was so tired on Friday that I was counting down the minutes until I could crawl into bed. And of course, once I got into bed, I got hooked on a dateline and didn’t get to sleep until way later.
We met with a contractor on Saturday morning to get some quotes for some future projects we want to be done once we move in. We love the look for the industrial black wrought iron glass doors, so we are looking to get a few of them on the closets, my office door, and a large one into the loft. We are also getting a quote to change the stair railings. We aren’t set on changing them because I kind of like the traditional railings right now, but we are getting a quote just in case.
On Saturday, they finished more sanding, added a few more doors, and are continuing to put up the trim. We had our phone meeting this morning and we were told that the tile would be installed this week, the counter tops have been ordered, and the paint will be completed by Saturday. I can’t wait to recheck the house this weekend.
I just shared my ideas for what we’ll do with these french doors and what we are doing with this room on my home-build Instagram account. Most people use this room for an office, but we are going to make it our piano and reading room. I can’t wait to add the bold colors and warmth to this room!
It’s also a tradition to bring the new contractors donuts on the weekends! 😃 🍩
We headed to Spice for a late-lunch Saturday afternoon, and it was delicious! I love all the new businesses coming to Fort Mill!
I ordered the salmon salad and the vegan spring rolls. I can’t wait to go back when I’m super hungry and order their pad thai! 😋
After lunch, we headed to the movie theater to see The Invisible Man. It was a 10/10, and you HAVE to see it! Sometimes movies like that can be a real let down, but not this one.
I had to share this necklace. My brother’s girlfriend got me for my birthday! It has the date Kyle and I got engaged on it 😊 So so so so sweet of her!
I spent Saturday morning putting together the photos for our realtor and then met up with Becca uptown for a project we’ve been working on. We had some extra time and decided to split some delicious fries from Be Good. French fries are never a bad idea. 😊
FINALLY FEELING LIKE SPRING! 😊
We finished up around 5 pm, headed to Whole Foods, and then headed back home!
I picked up sparkling water at Caribou and had my Vanilla Almond RXBAR on my way home. It’s the new flavor they sent me, and IT’S SO GOOD!!! They keep crushing it with these new flavors.
For dinner, I had cauliflower pizza and brussels sprouts 😋
Well, it’s time for me to run to CVS to help take care of Kyle! 😞 poor guy! I hope you all have the BEST week!!!
