Happy Monday, guys! I had literally no time to blog over the weekend since we were packing and moving both Saturday and Sunday, so I’ve got a lot to catch you up on!
Friday night after I came home from work and took a nap (no shame) Nick and I got ready and headed out to meet up with a bunch of our friends. It was one of my coworker’s birthdays and one of our friends was visiting, so we ended up hopping around from bar to bar. Eventually both groups of friends were all at the same bar and we had a really fun night! Sadly, my pictures from the night are blurry and dark, but it was as great time!
Saturday morning we woke up pretty early to get a jump start on packing. We packed up the kitchen and our guest room first before taking a break to drop some boxes off at our new place and stopped at Pita Pit for lunch. I ordered the black bean pita and stuffed it with every veggie they had available-except for olives. Perfect packing fuel!
Once we got home, we packed up some more before I took a break to go to the gym. I completed two rounds of this Tone It Up workout along with 25 minutes on the elliptical.
Once we finished packing for the night, Nick and I went to bed pretty early to prepare for Sunday-the actual move!
We woke up around 8 and I headed to the gym for a 4 mile run before we dropped Bentley off at the groomer for the day. It really helped to have him out of the apartment while we were moving everything out! We swung by Dunkin for some coffee before heading back to our apartment to meet a couple of our friends who were helping us move.
With the five of us all moving stuff, it only took us about 2 hours to load up the U-Haul and our friend Adam’s truck with all of our furniture and boxes. So we headed down to the new house to unpack everything into our garage. We will be keeping it there until Wednesday night when we can officially move into our place. They are currently finishing the renovations on our new place so we will be staying at our apartment until Wednesday night. On the way, I had to stop for coffee #2.
Please excuse my face. At this point, I was wired, hot, sweaty and starving. What a combo!
Once everything was unpacked into the garage, we headed back to our now empty apartment where I whipped up a green monster. I downed that baby in about 30 seconds! The heat + moving + a hungry girl made it no match for me!
Nick and I ended up running some errands for our upcoming trip to Atlanta this weekend before we were able to pick up Bentley from the groomer. The groomer told us that she had a little bit of a difficult time because he wanted to lick her face the whole time and play while she was trying to cut his hair. That’s my boy! ;)
We spent the rest of the night packing up our clothes for our trip and watching TV. Moving is seriously exhausting-we both passed out last night and I slept like a rock until my alarm went off this morning. I snoozed through it, skipped my workout and will now be hitting the gym after work. Sometimes you just need extra sleep!
Although the weekend was a little chaotic and we still have a lot of unpacking to do, I’m so excited to move to our new place. I am in love with the location, the renovations look amazing and it gives us an excuse to throw a party!
Off to work I go! I hope your week is off to a marvelous start!
