Last Jar Standing

September 12, 2011

Big big day!!

I have already spent 30 minutes scrubbing the shower. Then packed up our bedroom. Then had breakfast!

Teabags were packed. Pot for hot water was packed. So I made coffee!

I saved my overnight oats jar, but I had no coffee mug! Luckily I found this one that normally stores my essential oils. After a nice scrub, it was suitable for drinking!

Overnight oats

1/3 cup oats

1 cup milk

2 tbsp yogurt (all that was left)

1 tbsp chia seeds

Sunflower butter

Warrior Crunch granola

And here’s that pretty clean trash can!

I have 10% left on this laptop battery – my computer is packed! Better get publishing. I’ll see you at lunchtime from my super smart phone with a mid-move update!

Ahh so exciting!! Good luck with the move today Kath. I’m sure there will be many more sunrises at your new home!


8 Cait's Plate September 12, 2011 at 7:26 am

Ahhh good luck!! SO exciting! I think you’re going to love your new place just as much, but I definitely know that sad feeling when leaving something. I see nothing but happiness, health and wonderful times in your new place :)


9 Khushboo September 12, 2011 at 7:27 am

You forgot the banana missy!


10 Hillary September 12, 2011 at 7:28 am

What a huge, exciting day! Glad you got lots of sunshine!


11 Shana September 12, 2011 at 7:36 am

I hated not having my kitchen together when we moved! It was the last room I packed and the first room I unpacked!


12 Meg September 12, 2011 at 7:39 am

Wishing you lots of luck today, Kath 😀


13 Karen September 12, 2011 at 7:41 am

Keep cool and have fun, Kath! So excited for you!


14 Sally Anne @ PaleoRunnerGirl September 12, 2011 at 7:44 am

WOW! You are AMAZING! That move has *appeared* to be positively seamless! Also, your trash can looks awesome. I am going to have to follow your process as our trash cans never seem to get clean!

Enjoy the new house! Remind Matt that he better carry you over the threshold!!!! :)


15 katie @KatieDid September 12, 2011 at 7:46 am

Wow you made the move look easy! I’m sure it was tiring and stressful too, but with your pre planning for food, and super organizational skills it looks like it went pretty well!


16 Alaina September 12, 2011 at 7:46 am

Good luck on your move today! How exciting! :-)


17 Hannah September 12, 2011 at 7:47 am

Good luck with it all! Hope it’s super smooth :)


18 Molly @ RDexposed September 12, 2011 at 7:48 am

I’m going to miss your porch! I’m also crossing my fingers that your new neighbors will have a beagle that will replace Tig. A girl can dream….


19 Jennifer September 12, 2011 at 7:48 am

The move is bittersweet seeing all of your “last” photos but just think of all the “new” photos you will take in your house. :) I hope your move goes smoothly today.


20 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife September 12, 2011 at 7:53 am

waHOO! Good luck with moving! Can’t wait to see more pics of the new place!


21 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table September 12, 2011 at 7:54 am

Today is definitely deserving of coffee! :)

Have a GREAT move!!


22 Holly @ The Runny Egg September 12, 2011 at 8:01 am

Enjoy that lovely porch while you still can!Good luck with the rest of the moving!


23 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 12, 2011 at 8:09 am

Moving is such an exciting (and often stressful) time. I hope everything goes smoothly for you guys.


24 Anna September 12, 2011 at 8:11 am

Moving = tiring and exciting! Best of luck 😀


25 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance September 12, 2011 at 8:11 am

Goodbye house! So many blog memoriess


26 Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy September 12, 2011 at 8:13 am

Moving is both tiring and very very exciting! Happy moving day!


27 Mer @mersworld September 12, 2011 at 8:21 am

Those overnight oats look yummy! I tried them a while ago, but couldn’t get over eating cold oats! I think this recipe might force me to try it again! Good luck with the move today!


28 Katie of Cabbage Ranch September 12, 2011 at 8:27 am

Happy moving day! I always love that brief time between packing and unpacking. Exciting!


29 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen September 12, 2011 at 8:38 am

30 Krissy @ Shiawase Life September 12, 2011 at 8:50 am

What an accomplished feeling! Good luck with today :)


31 Sarah Jane MacMillan September 12, 2011 at 8:55 am

Good luck on the move!…P.s. I clean my trashcans too heehee…It all started with a horrible incidence of fruitflies…I won’t go into depth but it’s important to clean your trashcans!!!


32 Sweet and Savvy September 12, 2011 at 9:11 am

Almost there! :) Good luck on the final day! Your oats look great!


33 Cat @Breakfast to Bed September 12, 2011 at 9:11 am

moving is the pits, but getting to the new place is super duper. Like getting a facial without that awful “I just had a 4 bottle of wine bender” red face afterwards!


34 Katie September 12, 2011 at 9:15 am

Good luck with the move today!! :)


35 Liz September 12, 2011 at 9:23 am

Good luck with the move – hope everything goes smoothly! I’ll be doing that same thing in about 5 weeks, but moving 100 miles away… 😉


36 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats September 12, 2011 at 9:26 am

Good luck with the final move! So exciting!!!!


37 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) September 12, 2011 at 9:47 am

Good luck today! Does your new place have a porch?


38 Anna @ On Anna's Plate September 12, 2011 at 9:47 am

Good luck with the move!! I know you’ll be happy to get settled in, once and for all!


39 Shannon @ My Place In The Race September 12, 2011 at 9:53 am

Gonna miss the porch pics :( Good luck moving! Hope it all goes smooth 😀


40 Trainer Kjirsten @ Balanced Healthy Life September 12, 2011 at 9:58 am

Good luck moving today! I love moving but always get a little sad leaving old memories behind!


41 Kim @ Eat, Live, and Blog September 12, 2011 at 10:00 am

Good luck on moving today! It must be bittersweet.


42 Lindsay @ Lindsay's List September 12, 2011 at 10:22 am

YEAH!! Moving day!! Sad though, to have all the memories of the old house.


43 Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather September 12, 2011 at 10:23 am

44 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes September 12, 2011 at 10:32 am

Great breakie! Have a good day :)


45 Cameron September 12, 2011 at 10:50 am

Hi Kath!

I’m sure you get asked this frequently, but I didn’t find an answer on your site. What kind of camera do you use?



46 KathEats September 12, 2011 at 9:02 pm

I have the Canon XSI DSLR and use a Canon 35mm 2.0 lens


47 Angel7 September 12, 2011 at 10:55 am

The memories will last forever… Now on to new memories in your new home! Cheers!


48 Mom September 12, 2011 at 10:56 am

Bye Sweet House!


49 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio September 12, 2011 at 11:06 am

Happy moving day!! How exciting!


50 Shaya (Eye Girl Eats) September 12, 2011 at 11:09 am

Yay! last coffee enjoyed on your porch! good luck finishing the move!


51 Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled September 12, 2011 at 11:37 am

How exciting to finally be staying in your own place! I hope moving in and setting up will go smoothly!


52 Living, Learning, Eating September 12, 2011 at 12:03 pm

You’re moving?! Wow, did I miss stuff!


53 Sarah @ Sarah's Modern Bites September 12, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Good luck again Kath! Good thinking to save your overnight oats jar… usually when I move I end up eating protein bars or having to get take-out. I know you will miss your porch and other lovely things from where you and Matt are leaving but I am sure your new place is absolutely gorgeous and you have so many wonderful memories to be made there to look forward too! yay! Cannot wait to see pics!


54 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles September 12, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Good luck with the move! Can’t wait to see more photos of the place!!! So happy for you.


55 skinnyrunner September 12, 2011 at 12:52 pm

moving is such a pain in the butt but worth it once youre done and settled and can find your coffee mug again. most important thing, obviously.


56 Lara @ TresLaLa September 12, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Remember, lift with your knees, not your back. Unless, of course, it’s a celebratory beer. Then, lift with your elbow & repeat! Happy Housewarming!


57 Laura @ prettylittlewords September 12, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Good luck with the move! On that note…I should probably scrub my bathtub too…


58 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 12, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Good luck with the move! It’s going to be weird seeing your future blog pictures taken at a different house!


59 Jessica @ Jess Go Bananas September 12, 2011 at 1:57 pm

I hope you have an easy move! :)


60 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 12, 2011 at 2:07 pm

Good luck with move-in day. Wow, this came up fast. Probably for us, not so much for you who has been hard at work doing the packing :)


61 Ellie@fitforthesoul September 12, 2011 at 2:56 pm

awwww nostalgia! have a beautiful and fun day Kath!! bye bye home!


62 Lisa (bakebikeblog) September 12, 2011 at 4:59 pm

Hope the move goes well!!!!!


63 barb @ wishful chef September 12, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Hope your move goes well. Have a nice cold beer(s) afterwards!


64 Kait @ One Love Run September 12, 2011 at 6:25 pm

good luck with your move!!


65 Amanda September 12, 2011 at 7:07 pm

Overnight oats, I’ve never tried them yet. I’ve been hearing about them since I’ve started blogging but have not yet had them. This recipe looks tempting enough though that I might need to give in to the over night oats.


66 Stephanie @ StephSnacks September 12, 2011 at 7:13 pm

Ah! I just moved last weekend! Good luck!


67 Tami@nutmegnotebook September 12, 2011 at 7:39 pm

LOL! Packing, moving and eating are a bit difficult to do all at the same time! Hope all goes well for you.


68 Emily September 12, 2011 at 7:59 pm

Happy Moving Day!! Hope things went well today and there were minimal bumps in the road…looking forward to the updates from the new home :)


69 capico September 12, 2011 at 10:45 pm
