This donut shop is a nice change to the donut shop we already have in town. It's nice to have options. I really like their cake donuts. The blueberry one was delicious. They call this huge chunk of sugar cinnamon goodness a "pinecone".

During the move I ate out A LOT. Now that I have more time I am trying to get back into cooking more. Plus I have a bigger kitchen and a deck to grill out on! I can never turn down Zoe's Kitchen though so for lunch today I had a chicken salad sandwich and potato salad. Zoe's potato salad is my absolute, all-time favorite. For dinner tonight I made a grilled cheese and heated up some tomato soup.

After work on Friday I made a stop at TJ Maxx and purchased a lot of cute things.
I love how my house is beginning to look and feel like my home. It's the little things that make it feel like it is mine. I haven't been wanting to leave it lately. I want to stay home and get everything put up and organized just the way I want it. But then I remember those trips to TJ Maxx and realize I need to go to work to fund my obsession with cute things.
This weekend was another busy one.I finished painting my kitchen and dining area. I love the bright white walls. They feel so clean and fresh. Now I have my bathroom, hall bathroom, both halls and guest room to paint. I enjoy painting but I am ready to have my house finished.
My Mom came over and cleaned while I painted. She showed me how to work a weed-eater. On Sunday we sat on my patio sipped iced sweet tea and her drink of choice Dr. Pepper. We grilled teriyaki chicken, pineapples, peppers and onions. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful, loving and caring mother.
Weed-eating is a job but I managed to get my front and back yards finished just as the second battery went dead. I don't think it will be as bad once I kill all the weeds and get some grass to growing again. Some of the weeds were so thick they could have been mistaken for baby trees.

Just checking in with a quick update! All of my stuff is moved into my house! I turned in my keys to my apartment this morning. I have been busy painting, unpacking, etc. The soonest they can set up the internet at my house is this Sunday. I guess that is a good thing because there will be no distractions from unpacking and cleaning. Have a great week!

cactuses cacti (I still think cactuses sounds better) and succulents that I bought at Lowe's and Walmart. Now if only I can find the bowl/planter that I have envisioned in my head... I hate when I know exactly what I want and cannot find it anywhere.
Reading: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I am so glad I decided to read them! I am enjoying them a lot more than when I tried to read them in middle school. I may even finish the series this time.
Watching: The Vampire Diaries on Netflix. I don't know what it is about teenage dramas that just hook me in. It's a tad bit embarrassing... Meh oh well.
Anticipating: The actual move. Now that things are finalized I can't wait to be moved in.
Listening to: Mumford and Sons Pandora station. So good.
Planning: Coordinating paint colors, light fixtures, faucets, hose pipes, weed eaters, how I am going to get grass to grow in my yard?!, etc... If there are any lawn specialists out there feel free to give advice.
Working on: Painting! I want to get everything painted that I can before moving my furniture. I also made moving announcements. I was going to order some online until I decided that I could design and print my own. It saved me a lot of money since I already had the paper and envelopes.
Wishing: For more time in a day. There is just so much to be done!
Thankful: I am so very thankful for my family and friends. They are so encouraging in stressful times.
