And just like that, it's Friday again! I don't know what happened to the last week of my life, but between work, evening meetings, house hunting (enter newest, most time consuming life development yet), and coming to terms with the realization that spring is the craziest time of the year, I've been a busy girl. It's all very exciting, I just don't have any room left in the ol' brain!
Jeff and I decided to start going through the process of buying a house. We have been renting for close to a decade, and that's a lot of money leaving our pockets without much to show for it. I never thought I wanted a starter home, but as we began looking at the inventory, I realized that a place that we can enjoy and make our own is very attractive. The five months since the wedding have been interesting and wonderful, and my biggest takeaway is how comfortable I am with settling down in Boise. It's been a journey, but I see us here and I am really happy to want to make the commitment of laying down roots. Like tens of thousands of dollars worth of roots ;) Stay tuned, we might just be homeowners someday soon!
I have survived one week of a dessert free life. Some days it's been terrible, other days, totally doable. I am just going to take it one step at a time, be grateful for wine, and take note of how I feel when I'm not eating all the sugar I was before. I realized the other day that this was the worst possible time to stop eating dessert, but also a great opportunity. Stress usually puts my hand right in the candy bowl, so I'm going to learn some new tactics for chilling out.
