We are in the midst of moving. And it is a process. We are SO lucky that the Army sends in movers that pack up all of our stuff and move it for us, but because of this we have to be SUPER organized and prepared when they come. If they see it, they will pack it, and no one wants to be three days into their 21-day journey and think “Oh where are those socks I thought I packed?”
So this past week to prepare for the movers, Q and I have been:
Packing for ourselves - this fashionista is wearing leggings and button downs every single day for 3 weeks
Packing up our kitchen tools - bringing the essentials like a non-stick pan, two pots, our rice maker (essential in our house), the coffee maker and a blender
Packing up the pantry – packing food for 21 days on the road involves lots of cereal, bars, peanut butter and snacks (we luckily made a Trader Joe’s run while we were in LA to stock up)
Packing up the wedding presents – basically our house looks like a Crate & Barrel distribution center with gifts in boxes everywhere. I am just excited to get to Georgia to finally USE it all!
Taking all the photos off the walls – I’m super excited to have more space in Georgia to be able to actually hang everything!
We are going to be taking about 1,000 pounds of goods with us on our road trip. Because of this, we use a lot of clear plastic containers (like these), so we can see which container houses what. Q is the master of spacial awareness and basically packs the car like a pro. By taking so much stuff with us, we are set with kitchen supplies and household essentials if we arrive in Georgia before our things do.
We shipped the Prius off yesterday and we will meet the car in Atlanta around the time we arrive. The Army is SO efficient with moving that I basically never want to move on my own ever again.
Oh and we were all getting really excited since the snow has been melting and we can see the roads again (hooray!) and then this morning we woke up to two inches of snow with two more expected by tonight. I feel like Alaska is playing one finally trick on us.
Oh and newlywed life is fabulous! Q and I are so excited for our next adventure together and can’t believe the wedding has already come and gone!
