Hi! I decided that after a good 3 1/2 months off from blogging I might start back up again. A lot has happened in those last 3 1/2 months so I will try to catch you up on some of it and maybe you’ll understand why it’s been so long since I have blogged. . .
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… oh wait, no, that’s Star Wars.
Ok, sorry. I couldn’t help myself. Let’s start with the most important things first. Brad has a completely new job in a completely new city. We now live in Nashville, TN. Yep. We are Volunteers now instead of Hoosiers. Let’s be honest though, I never called myself a Hoosier b/c Hoosiers are people that go to Indiana University and I most certainly DID NOT GO TO IU. I would say I was an Indiana-an. I loved living in Indiana. We were certain it was the greatest city for us and that it was a great fit. However, things happen and plans change and we landed in a tiny one bedroom apartment in Nashville. We sold our house in record timing (well, we agreed on an offer within a week of putting it on the market anyway), packed up everything we own and moved it 4 1/2 hours south to Tennessee. Half of our house is in storage and the other half is shoved somewhere in this apartment.
We have learned though that Nashville is actually a SUPER cool city and believe it or not, Nashville is a totally foodie city. Never would have thought it. There are a million things to do here and a million places to eat. It’s turned out to be a pretty great move, minus that fact that all of our family lives in Indy still. It’s ok though, phones and FaceTime are miracle workers!
So I figured, while I’m unemployed and don’t have much to do expect for look for jobs during the day, I might as well start blogging again. This way I’ll at least feel like I talk to someone other than the dogs and Brad. Let me go through the recent happenings that I have documented with my iPhone. Photos are always nice.
Cash had his 1 year birthday and Etta had her 4 year anniversary with us. So naturally I made them a doggie cake and wrote on it with peanut butter. We also took them to a park and they cuddled in Etta’s bed.
I made fresh margaritas.
Cash decided he wanted to chew on one of my old tshirts and was carrying it around like Linus with his blanket. But then he shredded it to pieces so we had to throw it away. (it’s a blurry photo but you get the idea!)
We’ve eaten some of the best food ever. All I ever want to eat is BBQ so that’s been a change. We did find the best pizza place we have ever eaten. It’s also the coolest place we have ever eaten at too.
And today I made chocolate/chocolate chip cookies.
There’s definitely more that we have done but that’s all stuff I have actual photos for.
So my plans for this blog now is to keep everyone up to date with what’s going on in our lives in Nashville. With not working, I have been doing a LOT of baking to keep myself occupied so I do plan on posting recipes still, but my hope is that I will start writing more and sometimes it might have absolutely nothing to do with food. We’ll see what happens.
This weekend should be interesting. It’s our first weekend back in Indy since we both moved. But we won’t be there long. We’re doing Tough Mudder on Saturday in a suburb of Chicago. And we’ll be busy doing last minute stuff at the house so it will be ready for the closing.
Anyway, that’s that. I’m sorry it’s been so long. It’s been a quick, stressful and crazy past few months!
Oh- by the way. Some of these photos are from my Instagram. Feel free to check that out. I am a little addicted and love posting on there!
