Sunnuntai, täydellinen päivä käydä vanhemmilla. 😅❤️
Finally! It’s been 50 days since we’ve had a place to call home. This time we have a place to call home and it’s actually OURS! What an emotionally draining experience it has been. We literally hit the ground running, within the first few days of being here we put in about 5-7 offers, offering 25-30K over asking price. The market here is so competitive we were feeling so discouraged. Anyway, 10 days into this we finally got an offer accepted! It’s so crazy because before we even looked at this house Mika said “this is the house.” I on the other hand was so spoiled the last 9 years and didn’t have to commute and when I did have to commute my job paid me mileage and location premium (it was only a 45 min commute), so I didn’t think much of this house before seeing it and i was in no rush to see it. The day the offer was due we looked at the house, we walked into this house and it felt like home, like how I feel when I go home to Hawaii and walk into my grandparents home, that’s how i felt...it was the house, it is the house! So we put our best foot forward and put in a bid at the top end of our budget. I woke up Sunday morning to a congrats text from our realtor. It was literally the best feeling, in the midst of all this we had another offer accepted, long story short we knew it wasn’t the one. Anyway, it’s been 23 days since we got into contract with this home, 23 of the longest days of my life waiting to get our keys! I’ve learned so much during this process, 1. Buying a home and PCSing simultaneously is way too overwhelming for me, but i would do it again AND.. 2. We couldn’t have done it without Gods grace, the amount of stress on our shoulders was way too much for a person to bare on their own (if you’ve ever relocated you know how stressful it is) 3. It’s all about Gods timing! We’ve been overseas for 9 years and this was our first opportunity to buy a home but as much as I worried, I prayed and everything literally fell into place before our eyes.

There are few things that can make you feel more accomplished than (finally) finishing your taxes. So go ahead, break into your happy dance — you deserve it! And if taxes are still on your to-do list, check out the link in our bio for some tips on getting them done. ☝️

Day 7: Lower Body Circuit Workout
Circuit training is a fun way of incorporating high intensity workouts to your training! It targets both strength building and muscular endurance. You can do it anywhere! I did a lower body focused circuit today around a basketball court.
On the baselines I did forward squat jumps. The first sideline, I did one legged jumps, switching my feet when reaching half court. Then the second sideline I did lunges all the way! You can tailor it to your needs. I did 4 circuits = 4 times around the court, taking about 1 minute rest in between circuits and little to no rest in between exercises.
This killed me! Definitely try it out if you’re looking for a fun way to do some cardio!
