Well, it's official-we're moving to the burbs! After 4 wonderful years in Brighton, an opportunity came up for us to rent out in the burbs and we're taking it. We're hoping going to save lots of money in hopes of a future home/babies :) and Brighton is just not cutting it with the money-saving. The lots of fun, lots of walking, lots of shops, bars and restaurants-yes, money saving-no :(

Although we're super sad to see our Brighton days go, we know we're doing the right thing for our family (I guess this means we're growing up or something.....) and if you know me, you know I don't do well with change, but I really am trying my best. I'll be putting on my big girl pants and putting a smile on (or at least trying to) as we embark on the next adventure of our lives :) (See, I'm putting a positive spin on things!)

In the mean time, here's a sneak peak at our new apartment.  Don't mind the mess, it's getting all cleaned, fixed and prettied up for our arrival :) I promise I'll have some after pics in a few days!

Counting down to February Vacation...

T minus 8 hours until February vacation!! No, it's not just the kiddos who are looking forward to this break.  These past few weeks have been stressful-nothing major, just the basic day to day challenges, but they do add up and this just feels like the perfect time to step back, reflect, and relax.

Speaking of relaxing....did I mention my Feb. vacation plans? My Mom and I are off on our 2nd annual girls vacation. Tomorrow we will be cruisin' to the Carribean.

I. seriously. can't. wait.

So, although I've been M.I.A for a while, and will be for another week, I promise lots of pictures and stories about our biddy adventures upon my return :)

Oh, and did I mention we're moving 3 days after I get back...yeah...more on that to come too!

Happy Friday! And for all the teachers-Happy February Vacation-you SO deserve it!!

Countdown to the Move....

Well, it's less than a month, we'll be packing up and trading the city lights for the open fields and strip malls of the suburbs. After visiting our new apartment this past weekend and exploring our new town with my parents, I really am starting to get excited!

My Mom and I were the 'welcome wagon' and went to all the little shops, boutiques and cafes of the "downtown" area. It's very historic, with a mix of old (like revolutionary war old) and more modern. It's adorable-and there were a ton of people out and about. It was really fun to see all the hustle and bustle of a new place.

Let the packing madness begin...
