So I made the journey to Texas safely and soundly with my Dad and my older sister (and Riley) as my trusted travel companions. We traversed across more than 1,000 miles of the United States. I got more and more excited the closer I got to the state line... and proclaimed a Texas-sized "Woohoo" once we crossed it! :)
(I'm pretty sure all of Louisiana heard me.)
It was a long trip in miles, but we made excellent time.
We had to overcome a few obstacles - but nothing too major. For example, I didn't realize just how much stuff one simple girl can amass in a few years! But I guess when you work from home and have a crafty business - and also have all the standard stuff that most people own (like a bed and sofa), it adds up!
When they arrived, the moving guys were very frank in informing me that my stuff would simply NOT fit into my 17 foot truck. Yikes! I was so embarrassed! Luckily, we were able to get another truck and get it all figured out.
Crisis. Averted. Phew!!!
So, here I find myself trying to get settled in once more.
I'm mostly unpacked... but I've left my art and decorative stuff until last.
So I haven't yet taken the journey of making my place feel like home yet. Luckily, I've taken the first step...
Buying a new-to-me-but-old-to-everyone-else phone!
Can you say "old school fantasticness"?!
Guess who's going to have a direct line to the White House!
(That's what automatically happens when you buy a red phone, ...right?)
This weekend I am going to do some shopping with my fantabulous Mum for some other items my new place is in need of - curtains, rugs, a laundry basket. Ya know... the essential homegoods. ;)
I promise to take pics once I have my new digs completely set up (and once the neverending laundry pile is cleaned, folded and put in its rightful place!).
Hopefully it won't take me that long. :)
For now, this is me... signing off for the first time from the great state of Texas!
