Well hello dear blog readers! You didn’t think I forgot about you, I hope. Because I did not. But life has been keeping me busy this summer and all I have are excuses for slacking on the blog.
For one, we moved! Kind of anticlimactic that this was the past photo I took at our old house. Yes, things got a little crazy over the past couple of weeks between being 32 weeks pregnant, attending our wonderful baby shower (need to blog about that soon!), packing a whole house, moving, cleaning the whole old house, unpacking, working full-time, and all the other craziness that comes with changing residences. (With help from the huz and some others of course.) Phew. I seriously forgot how difficult moving is. And moving from a house to a house? SO much harder than moving from an apartment to a house. Lesson learned.
So glad that we are settled in the new place. Though we have tons of unpacking left to do, I can say that my kitchen and master bed and bath are both unpacked, so the house is at least livable.
Speaking of kitchens, I must share with you my BRAND SPANKING NEW KITCHEN.
If I knew where my camera and camera cords were packed and had a laptop and computer mouse that weren’t acting so jankily (basically, if I had my life together) I might take more nice photos instead of these ones from my iPhone and give you a kitchen tour but that will have to wait until the dust has settled around here. In the meantime, may I present the new MegGoesNomNom Kitchen Headquarters!
Our new home is new construction and we had the amazing opportunity to design our dream kitchen, more or less. (Coming soon: one more pendant light over the island – the twin of the functioning one was defective and we’re waiting on the new one to arrive.) I’m so in love with everything about this room!
It’s honestly a bit overwhelming to cook here after coming from an itty bitty outdated kitchen. Everything is brand spanking new and I’m afraid of damaging everything!
For our first home-cooked meal in the new house (which didn’t happen until a few days after we’d moved in and the kitchen was finally mostly unpacked!), I went with something simple and summery.
Brats and Jerky Pate from Biercamp.
Caprese Salad. (The huz is obsessed with caprese salad. I love it too.)
And good ol’ corn on the cob.
First home-cooked meal in the new house. I can promise you there will be so many more to come and I’m so excited to get cookin’ in our new kitchen!
Next project: tackling the nursery (finally!)
