Hey there! How was your weekend? Ours kicked off with a visit to our nearly-finished home…
It’s coming along — we’re less than a month away from moving in! Anthony and I can’t wait to have all of our stuff back (did you know 75% of my things are in a storage unit in some random spot in Virginia?) and live in a real house. It’ll be a huge difference from our little DC apartment.Since move-in day is getting close, we’re starting to order furniture and appliances for the casa. We (okay, I) decided to kick off our shopping spree by buying a new couch. In teal.After we ordered this bad boy, we dove into appliances shopping and picked up some awesome deals on a washer, dryer, and fridge. Tip: go to the store and buy the display models for 40-60% off. Also thank you for everyone’s input on the appliances polls I’ve been taking lately — we went with a front-loader. BIG NEWS.
Oh yeah, this is a running blog right?After I convinced Anthony to buy a teal couch, I convinced him to run 9.5 miles in 87-degree heat. He is a good sport.The hot sun made this run pretty tough. By the last few miles I was a sweaty, slow mess.Don’t worry, I dodged the approaching car.Done! Not bad considering we thought we might melt into the pavement.Luckily the hope of a massive Mother’s Day brunch kept us going.My brother and sister-in-law (in charge of the savory foods) whipped up some eggs benedict and perfectly flipped hashbrowns:Anthony and I (in charge of the sweet foods) made this date/walnut bread. It was really good!All together, with some fruit for good measure:I think my mom was pretty happy.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Have a great week!
