It’s been eight full days since we moved. Here’s a re-cap of the first week in photos:
Monday – Nov 30
Picked up the keys last Monday. Which isn’t technically a part of the first week living here but we slowly started moving things after work.
Um…my new kitchen. dies
Friday – Dec 4
During the day my parents helped move a few more car-loads of stuff. This was our first official night staying at the apartment and Terminal Tower sent me good vibes by doing RAINBOW for like an hour straight.
Saturday – Dec 5
On our last “official” day of moving, it was crazy foggy in the morning. You can’t even see the top of Terminal Tower here.
Before the moving started at 1, I went to the Huron Square Deli to get breakfast and read while I ate. Despite the huge mess in the background I felt oddly peaceful.
I broke a glass trying to break two ice cubes in half on the edge of it. But that’s okay. A plate also got broken in the move. Poor dishes.
That night we went out with friends. Conveniently there’s a trolly stop across the street from our place and while we waited we got to enjoy the bright holiday lights.
Sunday – Dec 6
V had to work in the morning so I spent the bulk of the day unpacking. We went to Bed Bath and Beyond as well as TJ Maxx in the evening. I got this navy and gold mug : )
Monday – Dec 7
I had to stop at the old place after work to pick up some left behind things. And then, pat on the back, I went to the gym.
Tuesday – Dec 8
A lot went on this day. I addressed Christmas cards in the morning.
And made myself a new lock screen for my phone because…#Beyonce
Put up Christmas decorations in the afternoon after I went to the gym (pat on the back again).
And we stopped at Home Depot, Marshalls and Target in the evening to pick up closet racks and stools for the counter.
I found this Jazzy little sweater with a REAL BAUBLE. It’s very similar to the one I got last year (also with a REAL BAUBLE).
Wednesday – Dec 9
I can’t really remember this day but I remember waking up to the clearest skies. And I stopped at Marshalls over lunch. I didn’t go to the gym this day because my knees were aching like whoa from two days of running.
Thursday – Dec 10
I had an on-site client meeting during the day and after work ended up walking around town for a little bit. When I got back I did laundry and ended up baking cookies for hours (and hours).
And now we’re here! I took the afternoon off to help V with some things and then later I’m going to decorate the sad Christmas tree. (He’s sad because it’s taken so long for me to decorate him).
