Weekend Review: October Edition

This weekend was a whirlwind! Let's rewind and go back to Friday.
Friday was a big day in the Morris home! Our house went on the market! We have owned our house for a little over 2 years and never expected to be moving so quickly. However, when Joe got an amazing job offer in Research Triangle Park it was too good not to consider! I quickly applied for jobs in the area and will be working in a nearby county. We will be moving to the Raleigh area at the end of the month.
Our First Home

We had Charlie nurtured Thursday so he spent the night at the veterinary office resting and recovering. After work Friday, I rushed over to pick up our pup. I was expecting to be brought a sedated pitiful version of our baby boy. However, he was already back to his normal tail wagging wiggly self when I picked him up! The doctor stopped by and said he was a very rambunctious boy and had spent the day checking out all the activity in the office. I got home and fed him dinner and then he crashed in our laps. For a five pound puppy, he sure has a lot of get up and go. But when he crashes he is out for the night! We are going to try and keep his cone (of shame) on  for a week until his stitches heal.

The rest of Friday was spent on the couch catching up on our missed TV  shows from this week and cleaning the house for showings!

Saturday we headed up to the Raleigh area to look for apartments. After searching through recommendations and looking at around 10 apartments all around the area we finally found one to call home! It is a newer apartment complex built within the last 5 years which was big plus for me! The apartment features granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances which is nicer than our current home!

Charlie's ready to ride!

On the way home we stopped by the Farmers Market. I love that we are going to be so close to the State Farmers market and can shop for our produce and flowers straight from the growers. We enjoyed some seafood from the local restaurant and picked up some apples to bring home!

Sunday morning we headed to church. Afterwards, we went to brunch at a local restaurant right down the road from our house Kornerstone Bistro.  I am going to miss being less than five minutes from delicious restaurants.

After lunch we headed to watch some of the football games at Kickback Jacks. Although NFL football is not completely my thing we were able to score a table outside and enjoy the beautiful fall weather! On our way home we stopped by Trader Joe's to pick up some essentials to tide us over until we move. According to Joe essentials include Halloween themed Joe-Joes!

Largest Soda by far!
