Well, we just spent our first night at the house in Denver. It was a little strange but not too bad. Pat and Natalie helped us move the last of our things out of their house, pack up our storage unit into a truck, and then unpack into the house. All in all, it took 7hrs. So I basically got in a 7 hour workout yesterday ;) I’m not too sore today but definitely need to start rehydrating. I feel really dry and and stuffed up.
We don’t have internet until the 30th, eek! I’m going to Starbucks [with a giftcard] and hopefully I can post there. I took a few super quick pics throughout the moving day.
After we got the truck packed up and drove it to the house, everyone was STarving. Pat suggested a restaurant, that I can’t remember the name of, but it was really yummy. As soon as we sat down we realized they had $2 bloody mary’s. Ut-oh.
There was a “make your own” bloody mary bar for only TWO dollars? We each had one :)
In the past, I haven’t been the biggest BM fan, but I thought for $2 it was worth it to make my own.
I thought the first few sips were really good, but then it kind of got to me. Too many flavors or something…not sure? Do you guys like bloody mary’s? Natalie + Chris helped drink most of mine. Nat was laughing at how un-spicy mine was, hehe :)
On to lunch. I had a breakfast panini that rocked. It was loaded with shaved turkey, swiss cheese, scrambled eggs, tomato and a little bit of bacon. What was really great, was that it wasn’t sitting in a pool of grease. It also came with a delicious little side salad, potatoes, and fruit. I ate 1/2 of the sandwich and everything else, minus a few taters. The other 1/2 was consumed at about 11pm with Chris.
I wonder how many calories you burn from moving for 7hrs?
Love all the windows! They aren’t as drafty as I thought they would be, which is nice.
All of my holiday candy was extremely accessible :)
Trying to rehydrate last night. None of us drank enough water.
Gooood morning – Dec. 28th
What to eat in this house where all my plates are packed and I can’t make my OATS!!?? Ahhhhhh
Strawberry banana Horizon yogurt eaten with my new bamboo spoon. It was the first time I had this yogurt and I thought it was pretty good!
Oh yeah. HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY Kenna Beans!!!
Dakota, you look SO happy…stop with the excitement please.
We got Kenna from a Great Dane Rescue [Ruff Love] in Charlotte this past May. She is a Great Dane/Labrador mix. We saw her at the Southpark beer festival in May. The Great Dane Rescue was raising money there. She was about 4-5 months old when we first saw her. She was the cutest little thing. I had about 3 beers worth of samples before seeing her. TWO dogs?? No problem….silly me. Chris was all for it though. It was a little crazy at first especially because she was already 5 months old and didn’t have any training yet. She’s learning, slowly [haha].
We were told that she was found with her sis and a few other pups tied to a trailer, completely starved :(
A few weeks later she was ours!
First car ride home.
Dakota was happy to have a playmate, and a bed + toy stealer.
In my car, with a sheet over the seats.
We think she is about 70+ lbs now. Dakota is about 55lbs. Kenna is such a goofball. She has no clue how big she is. Two of her funniest quirks are 1] sitting on things like she is a human – she sits all the way back on her butt and will sometimes scoot her butt up onto the couch with her front paws on the floor 2] in the AM she has this huuuge squeaky dinosaur sounding yawn – it is SO loud + completely ridiculous
The couch is together!!! So we’re about 1/20th of the way done now, hehe.
All for now!!!
