Catching up on weekend posts?
- I ran an epic 15K.
- I’m plotting to run 3 more races in the next two weeks to achieve a goal of 26 races by my 26th birthday on April 26.
The sun is shining, the coffee is hot, the wienerschnitzel is snoring… It’s a typical Monday morning in Central Florida.
I can eat hot oatmeal all year round, but today I was craving a cold breakfast. I am really enjoying the use of raw oatmeal instead of granola. It’s cheaper and I’ve definitely do not miss the added sugar.
My mix contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- Drizzle maple syrup

Getting Our Move On…
As mentioned a few times on the blog, we are moving to Charlotte, North Carolina at the end of June. We’re moving because Orlando is not the ideal place to launch the Husband’s acupuncture business and, although we like it here, we don’t see ourselves here forever. My in-laws are also moving to Charlotte, and North Carolina is a lot closer to my mom and other relatives.
Suddenly, I cannot think of anything BUT moving. It’s starting to become a weird obsession. I’m focused mainly on finding the perfect apartment/townhome/house. We’re going to continue renting because we’re not in the position to buy.
We have this LONG list of “wants” in a new place. In order of importance:
- Three bedrooms or two bedrooms with an office area
- Within close proximity to the Husband’s clinic so he doesn’t have a long commute
- Located in a mixed-use neighborhood so we can walk to shops, restaurants, and bars
- A good running/biking neighborhood or near a large park
- Good lighting for food photography 🙂
- Off-street parking
- A small backyard area (unless it’s an apartment)
- Renovated and modern
- Air conditioning
Whew. Does a place like that even exist?
If you were to move to another city, where would you go? What kind of place would you want?
Mmm your breakfast bowl looks delish! I love DC (where I live now) but if I could move anywhere else, it would probably be to NYC. I like to rent too because when something breaks, you can call your landlord to fix it! Except I do sometimes feel like I’m throwing a lot of money away with renting… I like a 2+ bedroom, good running/biking trails, public transportation and lots of good restaurants.
