10 more days!!

Well folks, only 10 more days until we move from our 1800 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bath home, with a large front and backyard, to this...
Our own little 500 square foot piece of heaven, in the middle of Manhattan.  The only semi-ghetto thing about our apartment is that the kitchen, or kitchenette, rather, is literally the size of a closet.  It's so small, that the fridge doesn't even fit in there, it will be in the living room. HA!  So awesome, right?   But on the plus side, we have a 24 hour security guard, elevators, a huge community playroom with lots of toys, a laundry room, free internet, telephone and cable, and it's literally across the street from the Teacher's college.  It's all going to be so different, but we are so excited for this adventure.  We are actually starting to get a little bit nervous, and even a little sad.  Today we were on BYU campus, and it was sad, and weird, to think that that is the last time I will be on campus for a really, really long time.  But, we are so ready to move on, and can't wait to see what the next few years have in store for us.

So, now we just need to get our rears in gear, and start packing our house.  We have decided to just ship the bare essentials, instead of paying thousands of dollars for a truck, and will put the majority of our belongings in storage.  So all we have to do is get on a plane, check in to our apartment, hit up target and ikea, and wait for our packages to arrive.  So excited!  Don't forget to come visit us!!

What an exciting adventure you are about to embark on!!! That will be so much fun :) You are smart to just move the essentials, downsizing that much, you will be happy to not have your stuff crowding your living space!!!

Good Luck with the move! I know what you are talking about, so many emotions about moving. We just moved and we had the same wave of emotions, ready, nervous, sad and excited. You will love your new adventure in NY. Sounds nice to just ship your stuff, we spent the thousand of dollars and moved everything!!

Crazy!!! And very exciting. You guys will have so much fun. Maybe Asher and Sayer will get New York accents :)

Perfect. That is what our friends did, just sold everything and shipped the rest. I think they found everything they needed on craigslist. Craigslist is different by each city, I would know! GOod luck, you will love it, really! Good luck!!

That is going to be quite an adventure! I am excited for you to go somewhere new. Change is always fun, but scary. You guys will love it there!

Oh my word. The joys of living in NY, right? I guess everything else the city has to offer should make up for the size of your place? Knowing it is temporary will probably help! With two boys though, hopefully they have a gym or something for you guys to get out of the house during the days...Our first place was about 400 square feet when we had Leah. We definitely made it work, but looking back on it NOW and it was SO tiny!
