Days 8-10: Denver & Boulder, CO

July 5, 2011

66

Holy cow!  Time flies when you’re having fun!  We fully intended on blogging along the way, but we’ve been trucking along at maximum speed ever since the start of our travels almost four (!) weeks ago.  We rise early every morning and collapse into bed each night, exhausted.  The great thing about an early alarm?  […]

Seven Days, Seven States

June 17, 2011

Hi, Friends! Long time, no blog!  We can hardly believe it’s already been a week since we posted last Friday about our departure from San Antonio.  We are happy to report that we made it safe and sound to Iowa last Sunday afternoon and just arrived in Denver about two hours ago. Let us back up […]

And…We’re Off!

June 10, 2011

66

Today is the day! After a quick few hours at work (so I can out-process), we’re hitting the road!  We originally planned on leaving first thing tomorrow morning, but we decided that trying to leave early in the morning would be too chaotic and stressful.  This way, Mitch, Katie and Gus have the entire morning […]

Finished!

We did it! The moving container is loaded and was picked up yesterday evening.  Our belongings are now on their 1,165 mile journey to Iowa.  If everything goes as planned, the trailer will be waiting for us when we arrive on Sunday. We must admit, our nerves are frayed, our bodies are fatigued and we’re in desperate need […]

There’s one word that comes to mind when describing the current state of casa de Gus…CHAOS! It’s moving time!  The semi trailer arrived yesterday evening and we will spend the next four days filling it up with all of our stuff.  We’re more than ready to finally load all of the boxes we’ve packed.  This time around, we’re using ABF to […]

We’re in the Weeds

June 1, 2011

49

Happy Wednesday, Friends! The title of today’s blog post is a tad dramatic, but at the same time, highly appropriate for our current situation.  We’ve spent the last several days organizing and packing up our house.  To say “we’re in the weeds” is probably a gross understatement.  We tossed around posting an expletive-laced title, but decided to keep it clean and […]

Itinerary: Part Two

May 27, 2011

44

Happy Friday! As you can imagine, the past few months have been a bit chaotic and we’ve been running around like mad people trying to get everything done and in order.  Plus, we’re still trying to squeeze in visits to all of our favorite places one last time before we move.  Although it’s an exhilarating time […]

Enchanted Rock

Happy Hump Day! We welcome you to another stop along our Farewell to Texas tour.  As previously mentioned, we’ve been making the rounds to all of our favorite places in and around the San Antonio area before we move (in just over two weeks!). We first discovered Enchanted Rock a few years ago after a co-worker of mine […]

5 Things You Can Learn From Your Pet

May 20, 2011

52

TGIF! I recently cleaned out my ridiculously large stack of unread magazines and spotted a wonderful article in the January 2011 (yeah, I’m a bit behind) issue of Real Simple.  The article on 5 Things You Can Learn From Your Pet caught my eye and I immediately tore it out to share with Mitch. 1.  Celebrate Everything I am insanely […]

San Antonio River Walk: Part One

May 18, 2011

54

According to Gus, the River Walk is the best place in the entire city to spend a weekend morning. We agree!  As we’ve mentioned in several previous posts, we head down to the River Walk every weekend to walk Gus and go for a run.  As a family, the River Walk is our absolute favorite […]

Hiya!  We hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  As planned, Mitch, Gus and I spent Saturday at Padre Island National Seashore near Corpus Christi.  A road trip to the coast was on our Farewell to Texas list, and we’re glad we made time to visit.  We had a great day strolling along the beach and […]

Happy Wednesday, Friends! We hope you are having a great week.  We’ve been busy bees lately, tackling fun tasks (trip planning), and not-so-fun tasks (researching health insurance).  The good news is that we are FINALLY done with our rough itinerary for California.  As of right now, it looks like we’ll be spending a whopping three […]

The Alamo

May 9, 2011

40

Woot woot!  We crossed another item off our Farewell to Texas list this weekend…The Alamo! I hate to admit this, but the first time we visited The Alamo back in 2004, all I could think about was Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.  What!  There’s no basement?! Although Mitch and I are downtown every weekend, we rarely […]
