Back in the New York Groove

No, I'm not in New York but I have that song stuck in my head thanks to one of AT&T's commercials. Anyway, I'm baaaccckkk! I've been a terrible blogger lately but I have a good excuse (or two)! We moved into our new house! And our internet took forever to get hooked up! And I'm sorry! I promise to be a better blogger to the 3 of you who actually read this thing haha

Moving on (pun intended)...

We moved in as planned on May 31st. We picked up our 17' U-Haul bright and early in the morning and loaded/unloaded everything ourselves with the help of my boyfriend's brother. The move went surprisingly well and I'm happy to say that out of the 100's of things we moved, only one picture was broken! Yours truly stupidly put her hand right on top of the glass on our last load of things we took to the new house and CRACKKK! Oh well, it's not a big deal since my boyfriend's Uncle owns a framing shop so I can get the glass replaced for pretty cheap :)

After we finished unloading everything, our place looked like this:

Apologies for the cell phone pics but my camera was packed in one of those boxes! I wish I would have taken pictures of our garage before the sun set but we had to head back to our condo to finish cleaning before our final walkthrough the next morning.

It wasn't until around 11 pm that we Swiffered our way out the door and locked the place up for the last time. Leaving was bittersweet because the condo was my family's vacation home when I was growing up and its walls contain so many fond memories of my grandparents. It'll always hold a special place in my heart because without it, I never would have been gifted the opportunity to build a home of my very own :)
