Moving On Up

As you all know, Ryan and I signed a lease on a great new place a month ago. On Saturday, it was officially ours, though we didn't move in yet. We painted two accent walls in the living room and have move a few things over there. The offical move happens this coming Saturday.

In the interim, we've been trying to use up the pantry, so I haven't really been cooking. Most of it is stuff I wouldn't normally eat, like hamburger helper and frozen pizza. (Don't ask why we have it on hand. I know. It makes no sense.) But, that's why I haven't really been posting. That, and we've been busy packing (and working). We did take a couple pictures on his iphone of the painting, which I'll post one of these days.

Right now, I'm eating multi-tasking by eating lunch and writing this post.


Two small slices of whole wheat with natural creamy PB, green beans, and yogurt. Random, but tasty. Better than yesterday's lunch of (ground turkey) hamburger helper and last night's dinner of a PB&J. :p

I'm really not looking forward to the packing that the next few days requires. I'm the kind of girl that just throws crap in my car and goes on. Ryan wants it all categorized and neatly labeled. Ugh!!! :p

  1. Do you rent or lease your current home? Rent. I'm wondering if owning a home in SoCal is really even a feasible dream.
    Who do you live with? Currently, hubby and I live with our roommate. But, as of Saturday, it will be JUST US!!!!
    Do you sort and clean as you pack (ie: throw stuff away)? When he forces me to pack, I do sort and throw away.
    What's your favorite part of shopping for a new apartment/home? I love looking at a new apartment. It's so fun to me to imagine the possibilities. My favorite part is always checking out the kitchen.
    How many homes/apartments/condos have you lived in? As of Saturday, 12!!!! lol. OMG. That's crazy.

  2. Do you rent or lease your current home? We own this apartment. We're still paying the loan of course.
    Who do you live with? My parents. It's just us now, my sis got married almost 10 years ago and my brother married 6 months ago.
    Do you sort and clean as you pack (ie: throw stuff away)? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. :p Depends on the mood!
    What's your favorite part of shopping for a new apartment/home? I've never really had this experience!
    How many homes/apartments/condos have you lived in? 2! This apartment I live in now and one in the building right next to this one ahah Yes, not a big move. But the other apartment was so tiny. :)

  3. Do you rent or lease your current home? We own our house/condo!

    Who do you live with? My husband, two boys, two dogs, one cat, and two guinea pigs. I know you wanted the specifics :)

    Do you sort and clean as you pack? I sort and clean before the movers come to pack everything. That way I don't move things that I don't plan on keeping. I also sort and clean as I'm unpacking, and some how still get rid of a ton of stuff that I don't want/need on the other end too. But, I also sort/clean at least 3-4 times per year. With all of us, things get cluttered really quickly if I don't. I don't see the point in keeping things that I don't really need/want/ or use.

    What is your favorite part of shopping for a new apartment/house? I love the first-blush shopping part. It's so exciting to imagine yourself living in a new place. However, it gets tedious when you get to the nitty-gritty details....yuck.

    HOw many homes/apartments/condos have you lived in? In my WHOLE life? Or just my adult life? Since I've moved around every 2-4 years my entire life that would be a TON. For just my adult life...since I turned 18....it would be...11 different places, in 10 years. That's kind of sad.

  5. hey Jasmine, so great about your new home!

    I live with my hubby. I've lived in about 15 different homes, and am so glad I won't be moving ever again! I feel like I moved so much in University and with the hubs, I'm over it.

  7. Good luck with your move!!

    Unfortunately, right now, we own 2 homes. I owned my own condo before we got married and it is still on the market for sale. I moved into Anthony's house after we got married.

    I have moved what seems like millions of times in my life- I'm a total "toss it" girl...meaning every time I move, if I don't really really use it, it goes in the trash...one less thing to move. It has really served me well and prevented me from gathering clutter!!

    I hate moving though, so I feel for you. Good luck!

    What's your favorite part of shopping for a new apartment/home? Umm... nothing at this point. I'm tired of moving!

  9. Congratulations on moving in! I'm sorry that I have been away for a while. I've had a lot of work, but I want to drop by more often.
