We moved!

Hello, Internet friends. I got sucked into the misery that is moving, which I hope explains the radio silence for the entire month of October. Here’s a little life update…

Moving

I thought I was sad to part ways with my cool Plaza Midwood apartment (after two years in two different units the building) but once I got into the new house I was like, “Good riddance.” I absolutely love it here. I’ve moved every single year since 2003 so signing a 2-year lease on this place was quite the commitment, but I think it was a good one.

I rescued this damn lizard from my fireplace and thought I might die in the process. Is this home life?

Food

This grapefruit, orange, cayenne, maple syrup juice from Luna’s Living Kitchen makes me feel invincible.

The veggie burger at Bang Bang Burgers is serious business.

Went on a fancy little date with Nick at Luciano’s and still ordered a damn pizza.

With a lot of energy spent on moving over the last two weeks, meals were downgraded to microwave mac & peas. Not complaining. Although I think dairy is hitting me pretty hard so I’ve phased it back out this week and am feeling pretty good.

When I talk about topping smoothie bowls with coconut cream, this is what I mean. I love it.

Went to a lovely little influencer night at Customshop last week. I met The Freckled Italian who is a real gem and fellow dog mom psycho.

Other Stuff

Went to the pumpkin patch with this little pumpkin.

Date night to Luciano’s ended in the ice cream aisle at Harris Teeter, of course.

I got to tour Stewart-Haas Racing for a story, which was my first NASCAR experience ever. Loved it.

I also got to tour an old stained glass workshop for another story. Very cool stuff at Shed Brand Studios.

Last but never least, my zoo.

  1. Haha, hiii! BTW I would eat frozen peas every single day. We can add that to the list of things we have in common.

      Peas for life.

  2. Congrats on the home! I am itching to get into a house, but know we need to wait a few more months to see if it could happen. I really wish dairy would like to be in my life, but since it gives me troubles… =( Sometimes I just want mac & cheese, pizza and ice cream, and it just can’t happen!

    • Katie Katie

      I’ve never really looked at dairy as a culprit for any digestive issues for me but I’d been eating more of it lately (hellooooo pizza) and was seeing a not pleasant correlation. I don’t think I’ll ever give it up 100% but maybe just go easy on the pizza. As for the house, I LOVE it. I was hesitant to leave the apt and the neighborhood I love but I will never go back now.

  3. So jealous of your Stewart-Haas tour! I love NASCAR & Tony Stewart! And congratulations on the new house!!!

    • Katie Katie

      The tour was seriously so cool. I knew NOTHING about NASCAR so it really opened my eyes. Big respect for what those guys do, especially in the pit.

    Congrats on moving! The house looks beautiful, where did you find that cool wooden tray on your table?

    • Katie Katie

      Thanks! My sister-in-law gave it to me for Christmas a couple years ago. It’s from Target.

  5. i hope that your move went smoothly! after moving from florida to chicago, i never want to move again! i’m over it! however, a lizard must have been hanging out in one of our plants when we loaded the truck because when we got to chicago and our movers brought our mirror inside, he said there was a creature on it. he took the lizard home as a pet for his daughter. oh northerners.

    • Katie Katie

      Haha, unreal!
