what i've been up to

It's such a sunny day here in Seattle!!  I feel sad for you if you live in a state that's still cold and snowy.  Sending sunny thoughts your way! 

I snapped this blurry picture on my way to work this morning.  I love crossing the Narrows Bridge each day, the views can be so amazing.  (What I don't love is the $4 bridge toll, but I digress.)


Remember that little ol' house I mentioned, way back here?  Well, things are moving full steam ahead.  Our financing has been approved, the appraisal has gone through, and all that's left is to sign a bunch of paperwork at the title company.  I'm hoping we can close on house within the next week.  Whoohoo!!  Things are starting to get real, people.


Why yes, the house is pink, thank you for noticing!  Or "salmon", as Tony calls it.  Don't worry, we'll be changing that.  Along with 5,394 other things...

We found an awesome fridge on craigslist and picked it up on Saturday.  She just needs a good wipe down and she'll be good to go!  It's a full-sized fridge, it just seems dwarfed when Tony and his equally tall step-dad are standing next to it.


In non-house news, I've been changing up my diet lately by having fruits and veggies for every meal & snack except for dinner.  For dinner I'll just have something "normal", which is basically whatever I feel like eating.  My dinners could use some improvement for sure!  My inspiration for all the fruits & veggies comes from the "low fat raw vegan diet", which you can learn about at fullyraw.com.  Although I can't see myself following such a strict lifestyle, it has inspired me to cut out as many processed foods as possible.


If you need some convincing on why you should be eating more fruits and veggies, just watch this video about how Kristina's eye color actually changed once she went raw.



And here are some of her tips on how to get more fresh produce into your diet.



That last video is really making me crave a smoothie!!

  1. That girl, although she has gorgeous eyes, wears far too many bracelets.

  2. I have not been to your page in forever! Its changed so much. I am usually just reading them in my email. I really love the anchor in your blog name. I did not know you had to pay to cross the bring when you are on the bus? Also like the fridge, glad you found one!

    1. Yay, glad you like the new page! I updated it awhile ago, too bad it doesn't show up on the phone. I actually don't have to pay when I'm on the bus but Tony has to pay it every day and it comes out of our joint account so it feels like I'm paying, haha.

    1. Bridge & Fridge, I love it! Where were you when I was trying to think up a clever post title? :) Yep the toll pretty much sucks. It was $2.75 when we moved and then a few months later they bumped it up to $4!! Robbery. On the plus side, Gig Harbor is pretty much crime free. I guess criminals don't like to pay the toll.
