Moving Day

About two weeks ago our contract sold and we packed up all our belongings into a 10x10 storage unit and drove to Georgia for the summer. It was kind of sad to leave our first place together. However, I won't miss the tiny kitchen with playhouse size appliances. Spencer's family was such a huge help with our moving process. I mostly just cleaned and carried out light items... like pillows, while the rest of his family moved our couches, bed, table, dressers...etc. It was snowing when we moved into the place in January and it rained the day we moved out. I guess we just don't have any luck when it comes to weather. The drive wasn't that bad actually. We stopped in Albuquerque for a night (with Tara and Gary) and spent about two days seeing the sights and enjoying the BEST food ever. (Tara has most of those pictures on her camera so I'll have to get them from her sometime.) If you haven't made a trip to Albuquerque you need to go! And you need to have Tara and Gary as your guides and have them take you to the best restaurant there. El Pinto. It was absolutely divine. I could go for a sopapilla RIGHT NOW. Thank you Fears family for the best quick-trip EVER! After Albuquerque we spent a night in Amarillo, TX, and from there spent the next night in Memphis, TN. Atlanta is only 6 hours from Memphis so we leisurely took our time the last 6 hours and stopped in Birmingham, AL where we saw some Civil Rights tourist sites before driving the last 2 hours of our 30 hours roadtrip. It is fun to be in Atlanta. We're just working and enjoying the weather as we try to save money for a big expense coming up in October. I finally got a much need hair cut and color which is a little shorter than I anticipated but it is nice to have fresh cut ends. The neighborhood pool opens next week and we can't wait, but in the meantime we have been enjoying playing with the Wii Fit and visiting with family.

Those are the kind of road trips you have to love...stops that aren't for just a few hours of sleep! Love that you're going to be there when G&G are around. You guys will have fun...card games and maybe some bread and rolls...but you learned how to make those didn't you? See you in the fall!

I love you!! And congrats on your little princess!

I know you're probably considering the name SAMANTHA (who wouldn't)... and I just wanted to let you know that I don't mind a bit. I would be truly honored....

Really Sara, it's a great name.


Just think about it.

Love your blog.

Love you.
