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


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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

May 20, 2011


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 […]

Hi. Nice to Meet You.

May 6, 2011


Now that both of our “official” resignation letters were submitted, we thought we’d share a bit more about ourselves, including a photo!  A couple of weeks ago, we posted an ABC’s of Us entry that divulged a few trivial facts about the two of us.  We thought we’d expand on that post and tell you a little more […]

Happy Easter!

April 23, 2011


If you celebrate the upcoming holiday, Happy Easter!  If not, Happy Weekend! The way we spend holidays changed dramatically after M and I moved from Iowa to Texas.  Gone were the holidays spent attending big, family get-togethers with homemade goodies that stretched for miles.  Although we miss the old holiday traditions, our little family of three has created our […]
