Weekly Wine(d)up

Well, welcome back to another week and an update (with wine) so I can talk about what’s been going on with me.

I will be posting a lot more of my videos on here and there may not be a whole lot of writing going on until I get all the boxes unpacked and can return back to “normal” life. I will leave you with the video and I will be back with a daily vlog post to share with y’all soon. I’m also updating weekly where my weight is and you can follow me along losing the weight I have put on over the last year. Let’s get this done!

Sunday Chores

Greg and I spent a good part of the day Sunday taking care of the yard and it was a workout (trust me). I also did some meal prep and general house chores so I’m not falling to far behind in everything I need to do.

Sunday Chores

No Apology Needed

If you follow this blog you already know we are moving 16 years worth of stuff from one house to another and it’s more of a process than I thought it would be. I’m not going to do the usual “I’m back and did you miss me post”  let’s just move on.

I’m not sure why I thought that once we moved items from one house to the other that they would magically unpack themselves. I just found my computer charger so I’m finally hooked up with internet but it was slow and now Greg fixed that little issue too. If I could have given myself one tip it would have been to put all items we use a lot in one box together so I would not have to go through a million boxes to find one item. I also realized with this house it’s a lot larger than our old one and I need to find a place for everything so I’m not looking all over the house for keys or my phone. I think the only way I will be able to survive is going to be with a to-do list and organization skills. I have been pretty good with the to-do list because I’m utilizing me Home Routines App more and it’s an app that is a chore and to-do list all in one. Very helpful and was free when I downloaded it to my iPhone and iPad.

I’m also going to have a Weekly Win(e)d up video this weekend because I have so much to tell you about. Greg and I have been doing some shopping online for the house and this weekend we will be putting the wall countertop up so we can set up the mini kitchen bar and we found these stools to go with it. We wanted the red stools but we were looking at 2 months before they would arrive and we did not want to wait that long so we decided on the black for now.



Digger is adjusting to the new house pretty good. It was a little scary at first but he’s finally starting to feel like he’s home again. We bought him a little toy to celebrate the move. It’s not something new but it’s one of the few toys he will take to.


I’m back to daily vlogging finally now that we have internet and I will have a lot more coming to the main channel as well. I will leave you with my most recent daily vlog and I decided to jump in to SSSVeda even though it’s the middle of the month. Check it out below and I will be back soon.

Heat Me Up Tuna

Heat Me Up Tuna

I love making simple meals and tuna is one of the easiest meals to prep for me. You may know that things have been pretty insane around with the house renovations and preparing to move from one house to another so we are trying to use of some of the food that we have in the cabinets. The great thing about this recipe is that you only need a few items to make a great lunch and there is not much fuss. As a figure competitor the other thing I love about this is I can take this with me while I’m out and it does not have to be heated up. I can eat it on the go and that’s super important to me. The tuna can be eaten at room temperature but I think it’s best when it’s cold and has had a few hours to sit and marinate in the hot sauce.

This recipe is super easy so let’s jump right into it.

What you need:

A can of tuna

Peppers (I love green, red, orange and yellow)


Hot Sauce (I prefer Texas Pete’s Hot Sauce)

Dice up the onions and peppers and mix everything together. Add hot sauce to your liking and place in the fridge to get cold. You can place the tuna on a rice cake, wasa crackers, cabbage, pita bread or eat alone.

The Fun Begins


We are heavy into the renovation to the new house and that means lot’s of painting and decorating is needed. We started our morning off at Home Depot for three different colors we have decided on a khaki color, pink and gray. I can’t wait to show you once all the painting is completed.

In the last 24 hours we’ve spent a lot of money on appliances. We purchased the new stove a washer and a dryer and they will all be delivered before the end of the month. Greg and I worked in the kitchen today and removed one of the cabinets from the wall and that’s where the new refrigerator will go in we buy it. There is one other item that we need to purchase for the kitchen and that’s a new water filter. It’s the same filter we have at the old house anything good to us so far and I will leave a link to where you can find the same one on Amazon. It’s a great deal say check it out.

We also did some shopping for furniture and I will upload my video on YouTube later tonight so you can see what we are looking at. We are really sticking to the whole retro theme and I’m totally running with it. I’ve still got lots of packing to do tonight so I will have to end this here and will catch you up on more house stuff tomorrow.
