Friday Things - BIG NEWS

Well, I've been a bad blogger again and have been absent from my blog this week. Sorry folks. But I have some BIG NEWS. So, let's get this Friday started with 5 random things.

One. I'M MOVING! I accepted a job offer in Evansville, Indiana! So, this Kentucky girl is packing up and moving 2 hours north. It's exciting and scary all at the same time. This is why I've been a bit scarce around blog world - I've been busy. 

Two. This wonderful Pandora feather ring was a good-luck gift for my interview for this new job. LOVE IT!

Three. Why is it that when you get busy and stressed, you end up getting sick too?! Well, I've been super sick this week! Sore throat, fever, stuffy nose, and just plain feeling bad - another reason why I haven't blogged. However, instead of taking a bunch of cold medicine that turns you into a zombie, I opted to go the natural route. While my methods of oil pulling with coconut oil, using a neti pot to rinse my sinuses, and drinking apple cider vinegar didn't cure me immediately, they did help me get over it all faster, and I actually felt better rather quickly. I'll do a post about my natural cold remedies soon. :-)

Four. Last week/weekend I got to spend a lot of time with my gal pals! It was much needed. Although I was a slacker on capturing the moment during the week, here's a photo from last Saturday night.

Five. Speaking of Saturday night's dinner with the girls, we went to Ristorante di Fratelli, a local restaurant. I had the most amazing Caprese salad ever! It had a wonderful balsamic vinegar reduction on it and super fresh mozzarella. Yummy! #notPaleo

  5. Mmmm, girl -- packing is quite the hassle, but go ahead and purge through your belongings as much as you can BEFORE you move! You've got this! I agree with you on the apple cider vinegar -- works tough...makes me feel strong and weird -- but it works! I'll have to try the other remedies should we get down with a cold!

    My advice for moving? Just take it one thing at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself trying to do too much at once. Moving is so stressful!

  11. Congrats on the new job! Good luck with your move. I love, love, love that ring!

Are y'all going to be in different cities?
