A Big Ole Jumbled Mess

Good morning!! I hope your week is going well so far!  Mine has been pretty good, but very busy and quite tiring.  Ever since we moved to Nashville and I started my new job, life has been pretty hectic.  Don’t get me wrong, I am still loving my new job and living in Nashville, but it sure has been a big change (I am so so so exhausted at the end of each day).  I’m sure most of the exhaustion comes from being consumed with house stuff (on the buying and selling end) in most of our free time.  Thankfully at the end of this week we will be completely done with house stuff in Dallas and will be able to just focus on buying a house in Nashville.  

You guys, the housing market in Nashville is insane.  It is extremely competitive and expensive.  Sorry, I just have to vent to you guys because my family is probably so sick of hearing us talk about it.  After terminating the contract we put on the first house, we saw quite a few more houses last weekend and end up putting in an offer on another house.  On Monday we found out that there are “multiple” offers on this house so we won’t know until the end of the week if we are still in the running.  I was talking to someone yesterday about how crazy this house hunting experience has been already and she said “God has a plan.”  I said “Yes he does and his plan is for us to live with my dad forever!!!”  LOL 😉 It will all work out, but for those of you who think I am being calm and patient during this process.. well I was at first, but I am just a LITTLE anxious over here right now. 🙂

As for the rest of this post, the title of the post explains it best. 🙂 

I totally forgot to show you guys this picture at my friend Rachael’s house a few weeks ago.  This is what happens when you try to get 3 dogs looking at the camera.


My husband surprised me last week on Valentine’s Day with a vanilla latte from my pups before work.  It’s the little things.


A big salad with salmon and a side of polka dot pants.


I will admit I do like my veggies a little more crisp than most, but not completely burnt.  My dad’s oven is much hotter than mine and I have repeatedly burnt food since we have lived here.  I may or may not have set the oven on fire when I tried to broil something the other night.  I do not usually set a timer when I cook so I think it may be time to start. 🙂


Some nights just call for alllll the veggies. 🙂


Oh!  One thing I wanted to ask you guys!  What are your favorite at home workouts?  Do you get them online?  From a favorite blog or app?  I have been working out in my dad’s basement since we moved here and have loved not having to drive to a gym.  There are a few gyms I want to try out in that area once we find a house, but I don’t want to commit to one until we know where we will be living.  Nashville traffic is no joke these days.  🙂  Anyway, I am getting a little bored of the home workouts I have been doing (mostly Ashy Bine’s program) so if you have any suggestions of places to find good ones, I am all ears!!  I like cardio and strength training, but will try anything once!


  1. Favorite at home workout?  Best place to find them?
  2. What is something that is currently stressing you out?
  3. What are you currently reading?  (I know I promised a book review, but with the move, there hasn’t been as much reading around here lately. ;))

  1. I’m sorry the house hunting has been so hectic 😦 Hoping this offer goes through! I do all of my workouts at home. My favorite for my workouts is Fitness Blender (YouTube channel and also they have their own website) They have full free length workouts and they are really high quality. The majority of them are cardio and strength training and it’s amazing!


  2. Oh man I do not blame you for venting about house hunting! Good ol blog here for you to vent 🙂 But seriously sounds tedious I feel like everything in life (getting into school, jobs, and now houses…) everything is so competitive. Like why can’t things just be easy haha #adultproblemz fingers crossed that something comes along for you two!!! Also, as for at home workouts….if you find any good ones please share with me!!!! I do a lot of my workouts at home and I do the same repetitive stuff over and over again. Id love to try something new!

    xo, JJ
