Moving Blog

We moved into our new townhouse a week ago and finally got our internet hooked up yesterday. It has been a long week of camping out at Starbucks to use their internet. Here is a little recap of our move from Tulsa, OK to Bloomington, IN.

Here is our giant Penske truck.

The IU stadium is the first thing you see when you get into town.

Luckily, after a week our place is looking much better than this but we are still trying to find places for everything.

If you are in the market for a bookcase let me make a suggestion, DO NOT buy this bookcase from Ikea. I will say, though, that the 2nd time we put it together it went a little more smoothly than the first time.

Our first meal in the new place...Golden Grahams for boyfriend and Lucky Charms for me.

This is what happens when you wash cheaply made rugs. Boyfriend put these in with a load of his clothes and now there are little poofs of orange inside his pants pockets.


  1. I hope you're settling in nicely after you move. I know what you mean about IKEA furniture. It's affordable, but not built to be moved around much.

  2. Moving is such a pain!! Hope you are getting more and more settled in your new place.

  3. Just glad boyfriend didn't put that orange rug in with YOUR clothes !! Did it fade on everything?

  4. You avoided mentioning that boyfriend was overly reluctant to wash the rugs, but girlfriend talked him into it. And, he's still removing orange fuzzies from his clothing, and only his clothing. Boyfriend was kind enough to not wash any of girlfriend's wares with the rug load.

    On a separate note: I never wish to move again. Remind me of that in, say, two years.

  5. Ha! My husband said the same thing about that bookcase, which unfortunately he put together by himself after our last move.

  6. That twin water tower looks like one right by my house, was it taken in St. Louis?
