A Satisfying Bite of Life


I had been so, so good with making sure I had 2 posts going out a week. And then my life exploded (in a good way). How so? Well, first off, I found out I got into a dietetic internship. This means I’ll be back to school come August! Second, things at work are going really well. I’ll be sad to leave in August. Third, Mike and I officially have a house!! It’s a cute little 3 bedroom ranch in Appleton, WI. I love it a little more every day.

The house definitely needs work, and that is where all my time has been going. We’re painting, re-doing the bathroom, cleaning, tearing stuff apart and putting it back together. One project we haven’t really tackled yet? The kitchen. I removed the cabinet doors the day we were handed the keys, but that’s all we’ve done so far. The rest of the house is coming along quite nicely. The kitchen will definitely be the biggest and most important (to me) project. I’m still undecided on what color I want the walls to be.

Needless to say, I haven’t been cooking much (or at all). Between work, running, the house, and various other life events, I have set my cooking aside. Fingers crossed I get to cook up a storm this weekend.

So for now, I leave you with a photo of the kitchen. Here it is before. Hopefully I’ll have a much improved kitchen to show off in a couple weeks!
