Moving on up!

We're moving again! While I hate the physical act of moving, I love going through all my stuff to merge, purge, donate and discover things that have been tucked away. I also love finding new places for all of our bits and pieces in the new space. And shopping for new items we realize we need.

But the best part, this new house is a 3/2! That means we'll have a guest room again, Sean will have his own office space and the icing on the cake - TWO bathrooms! Plus a two car garage, granite counter tops, a fenced in yard for the dogs, monthly lawn maintenance and much more.

Oh, and did I mention it's directly across the street from our current house? Should make for a pretty hilarious moving day. The neighbors will be in for quite a show. Wish us luck!

Be our neighbors?
Our current 2/1 in Murray Hill will be up for rent starting Sept. 1! Rent is $795 - includes CH/A, hard wood floors, washer and dryer, partially fenced-in yard, pets ok, great landlord and awesome neighbors :) Here are some more photos to give you a general idea of the space. Let me know if you're interested!

The Perfect Cheeseburger

Like Joanna Goddard, I too was not a huge fan of burgers in the beginning. I mean, I would have one here or there growing up, but then I became a vegetarian during college and even after I came back to the "dark side" still usually preferred a grilled chicken sandwich - until Sean gave me a bite of his cheeseburger from Ted Peter's Famous Smoked Fish Restaurant in South Pasadena, FL. I was still a vegetarian at the time, but I think I ended up eating about half of it because it was sooooo good.

I've searched for the elusive "awesome burger" since then and only recently realized that to me a good burger is all about the ratio of burger to bread to toppings. The trifecta has to be balanced; Too much of any one thing throws the whole dynamic off kilter. I've found only a few places in Jacksonville where I would go back specifically for the burger - Cruiser's Grill, Five Guys and Johnny Angel's. Sean keeps saying I have to try Colonel Mustard's. Any other local recommendations?

Below are two burgers from Martha Stewart Living, which one looks good to you? Where are your favorite places to grab a burger in Florida?

free breakfast ftw!

this is one of my favorite gifs from the blog this advertising life and i totally just did it at work.

so there i was, waiting for the elevator to go to the cafe, when the scent of free breakfast came wafting my way. i turned the corner to see a full spread of eggs, cheese grits, biscuits, sausage and coffee just sitting in the board room, half eaten. there was already a lady in there making a plate who quickly confirmed it was open season on breakfast bites. upon hearing this i literally, ran through my office passing out plates and telling everyone "there's a breakfast free for all in the board room!" we all indulged and it felt like christmas.

"when I’m waiting on the word to descend upon the leftover client meeting food"
