Settling In

The move was a whirlwind and all my great ideas about packing really went out the window. I feel like this big move has helped prepped us for the next go round (we are currently renting and will likely buy a home next summer). I labeled boxes to the best of my ability but not all boxes got labeled. That…

It doesn’t give you a glittery finish but just a nice glow. I tend to have oily skin and don’t feel like this makes me look greasy. I recommend this to EVERYONE.…

Moving Madness

Our cross-country move is getting real. A week from today Dave will be in Charlotte which means this move is REAL. I lucked out the last two moves (house to rental, rental to house) because I was in grad school still so Dave pretty much did all the packing/unpacking twice. He kindly points out that this move is mostly me!…
