More progress!

Last night after work I decided to go for a 3-ish mile run. I ran through my neighborhood and in the one that backs up to ours. It was nice out, cool but still sunny. Tonight I'm thinking I'll either do Shred 2&3 or No More Trouble Zones. I like doing Shred 2 and 3 because I'll do one before dinner and then one around 9 or so, and it breaks it up... but then it's nice doing it all right away. We'll see how I feel (and when JJ gets home).

I cooked my first meal last night in the new kitchen! I didn't blog it though, and I'll need to make it again and blog it because it was experimental, but delicious! Turkey-Pumpkin Meatloaf topped with Cranberry Sauce, Butternut Squash Mash, and Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts. YUM! It was the ultimate fall dinner.

We officially close on Thursday morning at 9am - yay! After we close, we're going to take some pictures with the sold sign to use for Housewarming photo invites, and maybe go out to brunch before we both go to work.

I know, I know, you're looking for house photos. I just can't put them up yet! I don't want you to see my crap all over....
What I can do it show you what we've put in it, and what colors it will be until it's totally furnished :)

Our living room looks hilarious right now. We bought an end table, coffee table, console table and media stand, but have no couches... so it's just tables positioned in the places they'll be with sofas. We did the 4 tables Tahoe from World Market. Not only are all tables 30% off right now, but I had a 25% off friends and family coupon for last weekend, so we got the 4 tables for around $600 (normally $1100). Yay! Here's the media console. We're going to get a flat screen and mount it eventually, we're just waiting to buy the TV on Black Friday.

My kitchen doesn't have as much cabinet space as I'd like for it to have, so I ordered this bookshelf room divider from target, but I have it on it's side under the buffet. It looks really good, and it will hold some of my cool looking cook/bake ware and kitchen stuff (I put my big orange dutch oven in it last night and it looked great!)

That's all I've got for house stuff right now.

I feel like a traitor. On Sunday, JJ picked up some Chobani for me at Sam's club. When I get a multi-pack there, Chobani cups are around $1 each. When I buy my beloved honey Oikos at Publix, it's $1.79 per cup, almost twice the price! I was told by a Stonyfield Farms rep that they're coming out with a multi-pack as well, but I don't know what the price difference will be. Today I had a strawberry Chobani and it was good, but I gosh, I do love my honey Oikos! I think I'll only buy Oikos when I have coupons, and stick with Chobani when I'm out of my Oikos.

...cause you all need to know what brand of yogurt I eat, right??


  1. I love that console!!! Shred 2 and 3? Wow, I'm impressed!

  2. I'm sure you've tried this, but TJ's has organic greek honey flavored yogurt...the only catch is it doesn't have the honey on the bottom to stir in. I've also bought the Oikos plain in a four-pack or tub and added my own organic honey...Is it me or is the grocery store constantly out of the honey flavor??
