Hey hey people – sorry I am completely MIA right now. B and I have been running around non-stop since we finished physically moving everything from his old apartment to our new one. Thursday we moved two car-loads. On Friday, I moved a car-load by myself (that sucked) and then B and I did a second one before his parents arrived around 4pm. They helped us get everything else ready to move, and then we had an amazing dinner at Chino Latino as our “last hurrah” in Uptown (we’re moving downtown ).
We had chicken potstickers, “carne asada ala moreliana” which is basically tacos with amazinggg corn tortillas, and this delicious plantain-crusted chicken dish…. we also had a fun night out afterward
Yesterday was moving day hell – 2 full trips of a pick-up plus a trailer full of STUFF. Every time I move I am amazed at how much stuff I have accumulated over the last 5 years! We were soooo lucky to have B’s parents helping us move – the trailer was a huge help and it would have taken us forever trying to move just the two of us. They left after we finished moving everything into the new place, and we started to try to make some normalcy out of this situation:
We stopped unpacking for long enough to enjoy a glass of wine and the Pride fireworks from our building’s rooftop with 2 of my best friends from high school.
Blackberry pic. Meh.
We could hear the music from the park up there, too – it was a pretty cool end to such a crazy day We finally ate dinner around 11pm (Chino leftovers! Pshhyeah) and collapsed our aching/abused bodies into bed.
Today is more busy-ness – we are off to buy bathroom items (towels and stuff) and a bookshelf… you know what that means. Time to venture into the DEADLY MAZE OF IKEA (God help me). I will probably continue to be sort of absent until we have life a little normalized here… but I promise pics of how everything turns out will happen in the near future Oh – and no wrap-up or links today. Too busy organizing!!!! Hope everyone had a great weekend! xoxo
