The Veranos are officially homeowners!!! My husband and I are feeling so blessed and oh so excited to own our first home! We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it and have been in escrow for 6 weeks! After piles of paperwork, tons of scanning documents, and even more stress of wondering "when will we close??" it's all over and we closed on our home Friday, June 10th!
Our home is a 3 story townhome with open spaces and a style we love! I can't wait to decorate it as our own and make it our place!
We started painting it yesterday and we will officially be moving all our things over Saturday! But for now, we are really enjoying unpacking things a little bit at a time, and just being there in general!
Eats have been super simple this week and we will continue to be doing that until the move, when I plan on taking a MASSIVE grocery shopping trip! For now, I'm just going to dump some food pics on here, and will hopefully get back to regular blogging soon after we are all moved in and I actually have an office/work space...YAY! :)
Turkey with taco seasoning over rice, with a jumbo side salad! I've been trying to up my veggie game, and salads with lunch are a great way to add nutrition and bulk to prevent that afternoon slump!
I was still hungry after dinner one night, so I took that as a sign that I hadn't eaten enough and munched on some nuts and sweet potato chips...totally satisfied after this snack!
My mama's delicious tabboueh! This is hands down my favorite food. I asked my mom when I was little if there was tabbouleh in heaven because if there wasn't any, I was not a fan of going here. Needless to say, she assured me that there would be tabbouleh in heaven :)
My husband and I went out to breakfast one morning, so eggs and hash browns for me! And bacon for him.
Lastly, during the the craziness of our move, it's SO nice to know that I can rely on Shakeology to give me all the nutrients I may be missing as meals are getting skipped and fast food is being eaten while unpacking. It's full of nutrition, antioxidants, vitamins, and everything I need. And, these banana waffles smeared with PB are making my life right now. So so good!
I'm hoping to stay on track this week as we deal with the limbo of the move, but once we are fully settled into our new home this weekend and moved out of our apartment, I know I'll feel more at peace and excited! This whole house hunting/escrow/moving process has been stressful for me, but I know that I can choose how to react to it, and I'm choosing to find the joy in this, thank God daily for blessing us with this home, and still take care of myself in the process! :) That's the best part of living a Nourished and Free life...knowing that you are nourishing yourself, but still living freely and not chained down by dogmatic diet rules.
**Speaking of which, our Nourished and Free community would love to welcome you if you have been feeling the same way! Diets don't have to control us, and at the end of the day it is about nourishing ourselves, body, mind, and soul. Contact me if you'd like to learn more about how you can join our community!
I'm hoping to write again soon...possibly with more pictures of our new place! Have a great Monday everyone!
