Begin the legendary wait

Hi friends! How are you? Hope you’ve had a great day so far <3 Thank you SO much for your awesome comments and stories on this morning’s post. Also, I’m so happy to hear you’re liking the Monday workout!! Thanks for always being awesome.. you do it so well 😉

This morning, we took Bella for a 30-minute walk around the park and then came back for b-fast.

I rolled with a goat cheese and veggie omelet + half a banana


(It’s amazing how little things, like mustard and chives, can take a meal from “meh” to “yeahhhhhhh”)

More eats:


(my all-time fave)

+ sushiiiiiii 😀

I haven’t had *real* sushi ever since I got the $1 roll in Valdosta and had scary fish nightmares and was sick all night. Note to everyone: NEVER get the $1 roll. Ever.

Today, I was ready to take it easy with some of my faves:

House salad


Squid salad

salad (2)

Salmon sashimi


The lunch bunch 🙂

The Pilot and Trev

trev us

Kyle and Meg

When we got home, I jotted down some grocery and meal ideas for this week:


and then met with our REALTOR!!!

I’ve been itching to give you guys an update on what’s going on with our house, but we’ve had no new info. The good news is that the sellers accepted our offer!!! The blah news is that the house is bank-owned (which is why we’re getting a SICK deal on it), so we have to play the waiting game until the bank decides if they want to accept or counter our offer.


(The view from our *hopefully future* master bedroom balcony)

We’re totally happy waiting because we’re in love with the house and also have a back-up if for any reason it falls through. Also, my lease at the little townhouse doesn’t end until June and we aren’t technically stationed here until mid Summer. (The Pilot has to go back to Valdosta for about a month, and I’ll prob go back with him for half of it)

So there are the deets! We’re cautiously optimistic that it will all work out and of course, I’ll post some info when the bank makes their decision.

I’m off to dance my little heart out 🙂

See ya in the morning!

    Congratulations on the news about the seller! Hopefully the bank hurries things up. They should want to get everything taken care of as quickly as possible but we all know how that goes… Good luck!

    Mmmmmmm sushi <3 There are not many things in this world better than really awesome sushi.

    Congrats on the house, G! I hope you hear something soon.

    It is so awesome that your offer got accepted, but I know waiting on the bank could take forever! My husband and I once looked at a foreclosure and the realtor told us that it could take up to 4 months waiting on the bank. I hope that doesn’t happen to you guys, you so deserve to feel settled in your own home after all the events that have happened in the last 6 months!

    SUSHI!! i can’t wait to eat sushi again!

    Good luck with the house. Buying a house really is playing the waiting game. It took us almost a year to close on our house but in the end it’s worth the wait. =)

    Ooooh- where did you get those boat shaped dishes that your salad is in?

    That’s a great view from your new house to be- good luck!

    The blueberry Muffin Larabar is my favorite to!
    Fingers crossed all goes well with the house!

    I love squid salad! I hate that most restaurants only serve calamari fried–you can’t taste it that way!
