I don’t want to jinx us, but I think we found a place to live in Charlotte! :) I’m really excited. It has most of the things we wanted – location, new kitchen and two bathrooms, and a pretty front yard. It’s a two bedroom, which isn’t the best situation because one room is my office. But… the price is right and it’s overwhelmingly wonderful! We’re meeting with the landlord tomorrow, and then we’ll make our decision!
We house hunted all day… Honestly, if you’re looking for a new house/apartment to rent, the best advice I can give you is just get in your car and start to drive. Most places don’t advertise themselves on the Internet, they just put a sign out front. That’s how you find the gems!
These Fruition bars are really good! I tested them before they were ‘officially’ released and it seems like they made some tweaks (like gooey pockets of raspberry) and it’s even better.
Lunch was a tofu noodle bowl from a sushi restaurant:
Grilled tofu! I was seriously craving a slab of grilled tofu.
I ordered the Udon noodle bowl, Yaki-style, with extra veggie and grilled tofu. I ate about 1/2… it was great. It never hurts to ask for healthy modifications.
The Husband and I came back to the hotel around 5:30 and now we’re relaxing by the really gorgeous pool. I jumped into the water but it was WAY too chilly… BRR!
I’m so relieved we have pretty much made a decision. If we don’t get the place I wrote about above, we have a great back-up that we’d be pleased with, too. So, hopefully this process will be over by noon tomorrow, and I can spend the rest of the trip relaxing. I’ve been kind of surprised by how nervous this process is making me. My stomach was literally in knots all day. I can’t wait to feel settled… Soon, my friends – soon!
