Awwa… my last day at work was actually really bittersweet.
Okay, I was all smiles! I couldn’t help it, but my co-workers were too cute. They bought me a whole big bag of gifts “something to remind me of them in every room.” Oh boy!! Lol. And we partied it up eating Italian ice in the conference room. Lol. And I felt kind of sad because I was just starting to come out of my little introvert shell at that job and starting to act like I owned the place. I was cracking jokes right and left. Haha. Oh well. I’m sure I’ll be equally jovial in my home office with Boyd.
I’m not going to miss floor 12!!!! Or the office environment. So not for me. I cleaned up my desk, turned in my badge, recycled all the papers I couldn’t remember what I was doing with, and passed the rest down to the temp below me. Haha.
I packed boxes for a bit at home, and then it was time to go to our closing. We hit a random streak of ZERO traffic and got there super early.
So we spent 15 minutes in the Dazbog coffee shop on the first floor.
I managed to humiliate myself while ordering. The barista asked me what size I want, and I couldn’t think of English for Grande. Lol. I only speak coffee in Starbucks. Kevin swooped in and reduced me with a confident “medium!” Role reversal!!!!!!
Ready to sign our names 1,000 times! I think I got the “e” before “i” correct every time! My last name is still tricky even after a year.
Our spunky little super realtor brought the PARTY to the closing table. She showed up with a picnic basket and sparkling apple cider. She was so fun and lighthearted. I was so thankful we had a realtor like her who we didn’t necessarily mind being stuck in traffic with or brainstorming about houses with. And she always had great Denver tips for us!
After the closing, we stopped by our new house to pick up the keys.
Our first time visiting the house without pesky people lurking around. We got to play with some of our new toys and find some little treasures the sellers left us.
I feel so spoiled to have a fridge with an ice maker & water! I’ve never had that. Ever. Such a fun luxury.
I <3 power boil!!!!
Haha. They left a steak for Kevin James!!! They were moving all the way out to NY so I guess they just had to empty their fridge. They also left us a partial balance on a gift certificate to a nearby restaurant. How sweet are they? And the place is spotless. I can’t believe the chance since yesterday! They must have had an army of movers & cleaners. It smells a little bit like cats! But that will go away soon enough.
A sink with a thing that can be pulled out into a sprayer!! Ha. I can spray Kevin and Boyd!!! And no moms around to yell at me! It’s my house!!! Maybe I’ll get Josiah first! He never reads my blog because he thinks all the food I make is disgusting (with the obvious exception of cookies. He even funded a Cookie Friday once).
Speaking of cookies, can’t wait to break that kitchen in. It might happen tomorrow!
And speaking of breaking things…
Ooooooooooops! I couldn’t leave our new house without breaking something. Our bathroom has a fake drawer. I didn’t know. I didn’t even pull that hard. And that’s Kevin’s hand paired with my foot, in case you’re wondering if I have manly hands or if Kevin is wearing bow shoes.
Yep. It’s broken. We’ll have to find a new one. Hahahaha. Smooth.
Let’s look at the giant pantry to take our minds off the broken hardware. Lol.
And a Swiffer & a Shark in the side closet!!!! I get the feeling they were kind of neat freaks and are trying to give me a hint. But I’m really excited about that swiffer. It has like a tank on it!!!!!
But, oh how they won my heart with bread by the door when we were waiting for a table!
I normally wouldn’t eat that kind of extra carbs before a meal, but after all the packing and driving all the way across Denver while starving — I thought it’d be good for our marriage. Took one for the team. More accurately, I took two. Lol.
Moving Day is mañana! And it looks a lot like rain… I need rain boots!!!!! Preferably pink fold-up ones.
What’s your FAVORITE thing about where you live? It’s gonna be my kitchen & my piano. In our apartment it’s how close we were to our offices. So close.
Do you own rain boots? I used to have some really cute Paul Frank ones. Long before they sold out and started selling a Target line. Haha. But I wore them out while living in the DR. We had to wear them to protect ourselves from the giant rats!
