TGIF! And House Pics

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Howdy to you and TGIF on the best TGIF there is - as in the one before a long weekend, yeah!

emoticon Morning Mentions emoticon

I woke up nice and early again this morning in anticipation of a mid-morning early afternoon showing of our house today.

Spot the cats! emoticon emoticon

There was no fitness today because I had so much to do ... and I was about THIS close to tears from being overstressed. Ergh, it feels so pathetic to be at the end of my rope already!

So I ended up skipping a workout two days in a row in favor of sweeping, mopping, moving, wiping, stashing, and washing. Although I was moving non-stop, I hated that I opted out of my workout, but in the end, I felt better for it and keeping my sanity is what counts.

emoticon Breakfast emoticon

After this breakfast, I am down to two bananas. Hmm, I wonder if I can do this same recipe but sub the bananas for pumpkin?

Two Ingredient Pancake ... again. Three days in a row of the same brekkie and it hasn't gotten old yet. :)

emoticon Lunch emoticon

After the showing of our house, I started feeling MUCH beter. For one, I was smiling and laughing again - to my fiance's relief!

Unfortunately, I was also crashing from the adrenaline leaving my system, which lead to a delicious 20 minute nap. Ooooh afternoon naps, I am sooo in love with you right now. I think we should get together for a few minutes every day!

With much of the stress gone and exhaustion temporarily taken care of, my appetite returned - so much so that I made a veggie frittata again with one my boxed salads:

The only difference today was that instead of Cholula, I spiced this thing up with Sriracha. Thanks to my Sparkbuddy LADYTARLTON for the inspiration!

Post-lunch was spent at my nail salon getting all my broken nails taken care of. Cleaning house destroyed my hands... emoticon

emoticon Dinner emoticon

I didn't mean to eat a cheat dinner, but now that I am feeling so much better, my appetite's become voracious!

We picked up dinner from Thompkins Square, a local bar and grill:

I ordered a Greek salad (amazing!), grilled chicken breast entree topped with goat cheese and mushrooms with a side of honey mustard dressing and grilled veggies. My fiance and I shared a sausage sampler - MUCHO DELISH! - and some slices of bread.

Is that not a crazy spread or what!

And uh, I ate ALL of it minus a few slices of bread. It was delicious and I was stuffed to the max. emoticon

I also followed it up with frozen grapes a few hours later because I love ending my days with some kind of sweet.

I know I ingested a lot of calories, but really - this was the first time in a week or so that I felt like eating. At least it was made up of whole and healthy foods for the most part - not like a few weeks ago when I gorged on enchiladas and felt nauseous afterwards.

And I WILL workout tomorrow, which will be fun because hiking with my man and my dog always is! emoticon

emoticon House Pics emoticon

So I figured, since I've done nothing but complain about everything under the sun when it comes to selling this house, I might as well share pictures of the shelter I've been slaving over. Heh.

Living Room:

Dining Room:



Office/Second Bedroom:

Master Bedroom/Bath/Closet:


NOTE: There is one room I completely forgot to photograph, and that is the second bathroom. Whoops!

It's a little sad leaving our cozy little home, but we've outgrown it and there are too many reasons to move that outweigh the reasons to stay. And anyway, as much as I do love our awesome neighborhood, I am excited to move into a new area where there's more action! I've lived in LA for 18 years, but I've never actually fulfilled my dream of living in a city. (Well, living at the beach used to be my dream, but now that I can cross that off my list, I'm on to the next dream to fulfill.)

emoticon Friday Snippets emoticon

Some happenings today:

Well, that's it for today. I hope you had a great Friday!

See ya tomorrow. emoticon

    Don't feel bad that you didn't work out. Vigorous deep cleaning IS a workout! And your house looks great! You really have great taste. I especially love your coffee table! Have a great weekend, friend! Keep up the good work.

    You have such a beautiful house and you've staged it very well. I love the colors and furniture, you have great taste. Good luck, you'll have no problems selling. We've been looking at some homes too as we have totally outgrown ours.

    LOL it's such a coincidence because I've been addicted to pumpkin ever since I got sick a few weeks ago. I made chocolate pumpkin pancakes and they turned out great, they won't be as firm as banana but I love the texture pumpkin gives to pancakes, muffins, cakes.. very soft and moist. My latest weird pumpkin breakfast has been pumpkin with cottage cheese, sf maple syrup, pumpkin spice and... an over easy egg mixed in LOL. Weird but oh so good... it's like pumpkin pie cheesecake packed with protein. It's very filling too.

    Well, I consider sweeping, mopping, moving, wiping, stashing and washing to be a decent workout in itself. emoticon
    As always, your food looks so very tasty.
