Everybody Party!

We've been celebrating The Match and Easter all weekend. We went out with friends Thursday night and spent Friday afternoon at the old Durham Bulls baseball field with Jeff's classmates. Saturday we enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and dyeing eggs.

We're a bit overwhelmed about moving across the country in a couple of months. If anyone knows anything useful about moving, let us know.

This weekend definitely called for a slideshow!

10 Wisecracks:

Ok, where do you find the awesome music and WHAT?! Seriously? A Bunny?

The music was one of the choices on the Slideshow website that didn't make me cringe. Can you believe that bunny? It really just appeared in our backyard. It's an Easter Miracle!

Heidi said...

What a great slideshow!! Thanks for sharing. I wish I had some moving advice but I don't. I hate moving! I don't advise it. :)

Heather said...

Wow! The bunny is Pure Easter Magic! Also the picture of Chloe in the white dress with daisies is the cutest ever!!! Congrats on MO guys! My only advice is to consider moving a great, fun, adventure and maybe it'll turn out that way :)

I just remembered you guys have only moved once. Lucky ducks. So start throwing everything away - go though files and closets and cabinets and trash anything that you don't absolutely want to pack in a moving van. And start collecting boxes right now. My favorites are all those cardboard diaper boxes (hit up your friends with babies). I probably have saved way too many for this move so give me a call if you need some. Also - ship the kiddies off for a few last quality days with the local family and just pack the whole place up in a few days without meddling toddlers. That's what we're doing. And buy a few of those boxes of packing paper from U-Haul - You'll spend $20 but it'd cost more than that to replace a piece of your lovely china. And if you need good packing tape, I can get you some from Sams. Theirs is the best. And label your boxes well. What's in them, where they go, how much they weigh (light/heavy). I'm a packing nerd. I'll come help as long as we're not moving on the same weekend! This is a long post. Happy Easter!

Wow. You are a packing nerd. But you're MY packing nerd. :) Thanks for the tips.

we are on move #8 this summer! yeehaw! 0k, so we have only done one cross-country move, but the best thing to do is get rid of everything, like kimberly said, including clothes, books you don't intend to ever look at again, and furniture you are not in love with. pack the least used things first (pictures on the walls, kitchen things you don't use everyday. go behind tjmaxx and raid their recycling stack. they have good big boxes that you can tape back together.

Congratulations! Wow, that is far! Good luck on the move...this was our 5th move, and my advice, hire someone to do it all (packing too), and sit back with your feet up drinking lemonade! Our move here I chose to do just that and it was by far, our smoothest most non-stressful move yet.

I just also remembered to finally mention - if you look on craigslist, a lot of times people will either sell or give away their moving boxes. If you can hit up someone who just had a company move them, you're golden. Those boxes are amazing. Sometimes you'll get super lucky. I'll keep and eye out for you.
