Burger Noshing and Room Organizing {MIMM #17}

Good morning!

I hope you all had a splendid last weekend of December! My weekend was a lovely mix of relaxing and productive, which is the best kind of weekend in my opinion. It was marvelous!

The Relaxing

Sleeping in until nearly lunch time. Hey look, I’m a normal teenager! Before Christmas break, 9 AM would already make me feel like my half of the day had slipped away. So lame. I now realize that sleep is never a waste of my day. The only downside is that I’ve turned into a night owl (I’m typing this at 2 AM), and school is gonna be ROUGH.

Researching all things blogging. Ever since changing up the look of my blog on Saturday night, I’ve been reading up on html, wordpress.org, blog designers, and a bunch of things that help expand a blog. However, as much as I feel excited to jump into the whole blogging deal, I have to remember that I’m a) not even an adult yet, b) not in college yet, and c) not ready to make blogging a business of any sort yet. I love blogging for what it is, and I’m happy with where Daily Moves and Grooves is at right now. We can take things a step further later 🙂

Burgers. BareBurgers to be exact. It’s more of an upscale burger restaurant with some fancy meats and gourmet combinations. They use organic, locally-raised, humanely-raised, GMO-free EVERYTHING. The quality (and the receipt) totally put greasy fast food to shame. I tried the Roadhouse Burger (avocado, apple grilled onions, pepperjack, and smoked paprika mayo) with bison meat— my first time trying bison!

I didn’t get lockjaw.

My mom ordered ostrich, dad had elk, and Ben had wild boar. None of them tasted really different from beef, but we raved about them all nonetheless. I loved mine! It was insanely filling though, so half of it was saved for Sunday’s dinner.

We also ordered some obligatory sweet potato sides— sweet potato fries and sweet potato “croqs,” which were basically more airy hushpuppies stuffed with cheddar cheese. These also came with FIVE different dipping sauces. The curry ketchup was my favorite!

The menu told us how many calories everything had but….. guatever. It was all so darn delicious.

The Productive

A complete room organization project. The first one in eight years! I’ve lived in this house for eight years. 😉

I don’t spend that much time in my room, so the clutter never bothered me SO much, but I finally cracked and just did it last night. I cleared and stored the clutter, threw away unused things, wiped away the dust bunnies, and re-organized. It feels ten times better to be in my room now!

Here was probably the biggest mess hub:

(Note-My walls are pink because they were painted that way originally when we bought the house. I do not approve of the color. We’re just too lazy to change it.)

Haaaaalelujah. I threw out/recycled/stored about 50% of the things in my room. I also found out that I was a minor hoarder of rubber bracelets, stuffed seals, and stuffed penguins. And some hidden gems:

It’s not real. But what the heck?

….

Yeah.

Now the hard part will be keeping my room this nice. My innate tendency toward entropy is real.

I hope you all have a marvelous Monday!

So tell me:

How was your weekend?

What is the most unusual burger meat you’ve ever tried?

How often do you organize/de-clutter your room?

  1. Calories counts on menus. Guatever is right!!!! Lol
    I haven’t been that adventurous when it comes to burgers but I think bison is definitely something id like to try!
    Good job decluttering! Can I hire you to do my room?😉

  2. I have loved the fried egg on burgers! As for blogging, just know that it doesn’t have to be your top priority before you enter school. Take your time and when it comes to a time where it’s a big priority, you can make the jump 🙂
