Hello there! I hope you had a great weekend! Here's a little recap of what's going on in my life (spoiler alert: big news ahead):
Loving: Violet's adorable smiles in the morning! She is seven weeks old and she is getting so big :) I'm also loved my blogger brunch date with Caitlyn, Meg, and Jessica this weekend. And finally the flowers in Charleston are amazing -- the Azaleas were in bloom a few weeks ago and now there is Jasmine everywhere!
Loathing: So far I've been able to exclusively breastfeed Violet. But I know it would be nice to have a backup supply of milk, so I started pumping last week. I'm not a fan. Hopefully it'll all be worth it when H and I are finally able to go out on a date :)
Looking Forward to: We bought a house! We close next week and we move in at the end of the month. We are so excited to be staying in Charleston! H was offered a great job and we spent the last few months house hunting. We ended up finding a great place on James Island, so we'll be about 10 minutes from downtown and Folly Beach. This is our second home (we owned a condo back in Chicago) but this is the first one with a YARD and GARAGE. Yahhh!! that means no more storing our bikes in the laundry closet and we can finally plant a garden :) I'm also excited to finally decorate Violet's nursery.
Pinning: H made the mistake of watching a video of how lunch meat is made -- ugh. so gross. Now we want to eat more meatless meals, so I've been pinning lots of vegetarian meals. We made a Mediterranean Chickpea Salad last night and it was really tasty. I loved that it used a lot of fresh ingredients and we didn't have to turn on the oven.
Shopping: I'm starting to research things for our new home. There are a lot of rooms we need to furnish since we're moving from 650 sq. ft. to over 2000 sq. ft. Stay tuned for some home decor posts -- I'll be searching for a comfy sectional, a kitchen table and chairs, and a cute door knocker in the next few weeks.
Watching: After all the drama on the last season of House of Cards, I've been watching shows that make me laugh: blackish, Fresh Off the Boat, and The Last Man on Earth.
