Protein and Brussels

Phew! Where did today go guys? Did your day fly by as fast as mine? Work was SO busy! My tummy was giving me problems all day so I really only nibbled. I came home and did a half hour of Body Attack before my tummy went back on strike. The rest of the night was spent catching up and cooking!

Thank you all again for your awesome comments yesterday. What would I do without you guys? I figured I'd post one last set of home pics- updated kitchen pics! A lot of you noted that your kitchen is your favorite place in your house and it is definitely mine as well! Here are the almost complete pics of my kitchen (again ignore the little mess):



Down the side hall is another tiny set of cabinets and our pantry:

For dinner tonight, I prepped some chopped brussels and I ate some of the remaining chicken from my dinner out last night(My tummy aches only allowed me to get about half of this down :():

Josh received a VERY special birthday delivery from his brother Justin- Omaha steaks! I made him a couple of steaks to go along with his brussels! Jus- he was so excited, he started to eat before he had even sat down! He (/we) are SUPER excited to try the key lime cheesecake you sent as well!!!!! Thank you, Thank you!

Have a good night!

Erica, so sorry your stomach is still troubling you. Do you think it is some type of virus or something else? Maybe you're not tolerating something you're eating. Our bodies can build up intolerance to foods that have never bothered us before. This has happened to me with both soy and dairy in the past. I think soy is bothering me again...very unfortunate since I just bought an entire case of soy milk from Costco!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your kitchen. So jealous of your pantry. We do not have one, and I told Chris our new place in CO must have a pantry! Definitely a kitchen requirement from now on!

Those steaks - what a perfect gift for any guy. :)

Bridget said...

omg I am SO incredibly envious of your house!!! I LOVE LOVE the windows from the last post, and this Kitchen!!! This makes me sad that we are not going to be able to find/afford something like that around here. I am SO happy for you though!!! We are starting the house search very soon, just got pre-approved!

Krista said...

healthy ashley said...

LOVE your kitchen! And I used to love Omaha steaks way back when!

Aimee said...

I love seeing your home pictures. It is such a pretty home!! It makes me want to remodel my kitchen. Our house was built in the 90s, so it isn't that old, but it really just doesn't fit our style. There is floor to ceiling wall paper, that even my puppy hated (she started ripping it off in some corners).

Danielle said...

Love Love Love your kitchen! It looks so great! My kitchen is so super tiny you're making me jealous.

The Running Yogini said...

Wow I'm loving these pictures of your house! This gives me a really good idea of what my dream house would be some day. I hope you have so much fun in your beautiful kitchen making lots of yummy meals ;-)

The Blonde Duck said...

What mess? There's no mess! Your house is gorgeous.

I'd be excited about those steaks too. Drool.

Lori said...

Oooh! I love your fridge! I definitely want a freezer on the bottom when we get a new one.
