The seemingly never-ending move


It's been 27 days since we got the keys to our apartment. 27 DAYS!!! And yet it feels like only a handful have gone by. Jeremy and I have been so swamped with using every single free moment to move stuff over to the apartment. Go furniture shopping. Build said furniture. Return furniture because it was missing pieces. Build it again. Move more stuff. Vacuum and Steam clean. And all of this mostly on our weekends and for an hour or two most nights of the week.

No wonder people usually take a week off when they move. It's so much more work. Jeremy and I's only experience with moving has been from one apartment to another. Something that can usually be completed in a weekend. But moving from a 2-story house into a 2-bedroom apartment has proved difficult. Especially when we only have a Honda Civic and a Mini Cooper at our disposal.

So I apologize for my absence this month. We are on the final stretch of days before we hand over the house completely to the realtor. Saturday to be exact.

It's crunch time!

On a more positive side note, Kayla from Kaylanaut and I can finally show you the cool illustration I did of her and her family. :3 I'm so proud at how it turned out. She also sent me some fun bento accessories as a 'thank you' and I absolutely cannot wait to use them!! I have two bentos sketched out and ready to make. I'll try and get them posted next week.

I also have a fun vegetarian recipe for all you taco-night lovers. I'm going to teach you how super-freaking easy it is to make this:

Also next week, another rant piece about sexism and geekdom. I have some points I'd really like to make and would love to hear your thoughts.

And finally of course, I'll post a cool tour of our apartment. It may be way smaller than our house, but there are so many amazing things and collections. I can't wait to show them off!

Keep it classy, readers.

  1. Always a joy seeing your name pop up in my feed reader! I'm happy you loved the little bento boxes... again, I totally would've felt like a butt had I not grabbed some for you, considering you're the best bentoist (bentoer?) I know!

    ALSO WHAT'S UP, CUTE NEW LAYOUT. Your header and nav bar made my heart go all kind of aflutter.

  2. Taco nights rule. Sometimes I want to have a family just to have a taco night. for realz.
    Good luck with the move. Sounds like now is a good time to downsize and evaluate what you really need.
    It's not easy but it's worth it. Best of luck!
