Moving With the Pollock’s Part 2

If you have read Coffee Books and Banwaggons at any point this week you know about this two part series on our most recent move; I have appropriately titled Moving with the Pollock’s. Part one we call all say was sad, and morbid and depressing but you won’t hear any of that on this blog. This post is happy because it is about our new home.

Alright so story time.

When I left off I was telling you how we moved in with my father in law while we looked for a new place to live. We we found a place. It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but when you take in the fact that we have a huge yard and a 2 chicken coops plus a shed, and water and trash is taken care of it’s worth it.

One. thing I love is most of the house has hard wood. Having a dog makes having carpet a NIGHTMARE. I was spending money paying for carpet cleaning and now I don’t have too.

My favorite room in the house is the kitchen. I love to cook and one thing about kitchen a kitchen has to have is decent counter and cabinet space. This kitchen has all of that. The previous owners took the island out, but I got creative and doubled my desk as an island in the kitchen.The kitchen and living room also have an open floor plan.

The living room has a really decent set up for entertaining. Eventually, we will get a matching sofa set, but baby steps.

In the old house I had an office, and think my husband was a little upset that he did not have a space of his own. I had an office I did not even use. With that being said it was important for me to make sure Devon had a place that was all his. One of the three bedrooms has been turned into a man cave. Honestly, I am a little jealous because what he has done with that room is awesome. Also, I don’t have forty million socks all over the house. or cups, or baseball caps because they are in his man cave 🙂 See what I did there?

We are still working on getting things for the master bedroom and spare bedroom and we will keep you all updated as we decorate those.

At the end of all of this moving we can say we are happy, the house is great, and there is nothing to repair. Now we can focus on being married and our family.

Becoming a Morning Person

We write this to make our joy complete

1 John 1:4

Hit like if you have at least 3 alarms. Now hit like and share if you have at least 3 alarms and you snooze all of them. My name is Brittney and I am that person. Now hit like if on a normal day you sleep till noon. Some days that is also me.

Here is the problem. On my 12 noon days I feel sluggish all day. I skip 2.5 meals, and workouts. My to do list doubles because I push whatever I did not do to the next day. On top of all that being an” Afternoon person “ does not fit my wife lifestyle I live now. I have decided to make a change.

I have been doing some research, on how to evolve myself into the morning person I so desperately want to be. Some of the things I have found are pretty common throughout all of the pages and posts.


  • Go to bed earlier. This seems pretty standard. It makes sense and will probably be my first move.
  • Open the blinds and make my bed. My husband will not do this, so I guess I am on my own for this one.
  • Do at least 15 minutes of yoga in the mornings. I am downward dog for this one.
  • Drink water before doing anything else.

With the common factors in mind that is probably what I am going to try first. I have downloaded a free yoga app on my phone. I have set an alarm for 5:00 in the morning Now I guess wish me luck. . I will post tomorrow evening and fill you in whether I was successful. Also, if you have any tips of your own I am all ears.
