We did it!! We’re all moved in and practically unpacked too. I have to say that we are a dynamite team. Lol.
We started the day off right… Iced Americano & Spinach Feta Wrap.
Kevin decided 9AM was early enough to start on a Saturday, especially when we were pretty tired from packing everything up. We were extremely thorough in our packing because we wanted to make moving day as smooth as possible. We’d had some offers to help, but our plans were so up in the air until the last minute that it ended up being just the 2 of us.
Okay, and Boyd…
Boyd J Kreisel was very skittish about being in the back of the moving truck. No, we didn’t try to drive with him back there!! We were just playing!!
In fact, he wasn’t crazy about the U-Haul at all!
He burrowed into the seat as far as possible. I guess Kevin driving a truck made him verrrry nervous.
We got everything loaded into the truck by lunch time, and breaked for some Subway. I know you guys think I was just bossing Kevin around, but I was working the whole time!! I had to help carry the furniture, but the worst part was the mattress. That thing is unwieldy!!!
Of course, the kitchen was the first thing to be unpacked! I was exhausted already, but it was still fun to walk across that bubble wrap floor! We were totally done unloading the truck by about 5PM! Not too shabby, especially considering it’s about a 30-45 minute drive from our old apartment to our new house!!
By the time we swung by the Highlands Asian Grill, we were starving! And they did not disappoint. So happy to have this spot in our new neighborhood. The Basil Chicken was incredible! Afterwards, we stayed up unpacking until midnight!! Long day!
I knew it was going to be, but moving is the best workout ever. I am so sore today! I think it was mainly from standing almost the entire day, as well as many trips up and down the basement stairs. We were seriously wondered how people move who don’t workout!! But, I guess we were really super powering through. Totally painful, but totally worth it.
Ahh… first breakfast in our new house!
We enjoyed it hanging out on the porch swing, but then it was back to work. We wanted to have things in good shape because we had company coming! Yeah, I know it was a little crazy, but my family was showing up today!!! They were originally supposed to come at the end of June, but I wanted them to wait till they could stay at our house. I didn’t want them to have to help us move because this is like their vacation. No way!!
THIS is how you should start a vacation!! I couldn’t resist making cookies in our new house to make it smell like home, and I have to find some excuse to bring out the beverage dispensers we used at our wedding!!
Random question: I feel like our house really smells like cats. I kinda really don’t like cats, and that’s not an attractive smell. Any ideas? We’ve been airing, candling, and baking. I THINK it might be a bit better. I need to go out for a while and come back in to be sure. The previous owners luckily were definitely really neat freaks so I’m hoping it’s just from the leftover cat fur.
What are you looking forward to this week? Not working!! Time with my family. The best part is that we were supposed to be moving TOMORROW so Kevin is off!! Hooray!!!!! So glad that’s over with!! Haha.
What’s the first room you’d unpack in a house? Kitchen, for sure!!! My clothes are usually last. They’re not unpacked yet. The first thing Kevin actually did was make sure our internet was transferred to our new house. Best husband ever!! He knows there can be no gaps in my access. Lol.
