Drum roll please...There were a few of you who hit the nail on the head, as it were. MOVING. In no particular order, here are the fabulous peeps who guessed what I was doing...
Lorraine at A Multi-Dimensional Life
Mariko at The Little Foodie
Jamie at Mangiabella
If you haven't visited them, they are all really fabulous ladies with amazing blogs.
Add to the boxes, rolls and rolls of tape, overflowing boxes of bubble wrap, and loads of packing paper. Mixed with children in transition, cardboard cuts (the long, distant, evil cousin of paper cuts), and one stressed mommy equals family fun!
Where are we moving you ask? Down the street? Over the river? No. The Hubs accepted an offer for a new job in my home town and our new house is just a hop, skip and jump away from my overly excited parents. I haven't lived at home, Kansas City, for 10 years now. I am so happy to be home, regardless of the wonky-out-of-whack-feelings I have. We are currently bunking with my parents until our stuff gets here, tomorrow. I can't wait to move into our new place.
To share a bit of our insane journey from Houston to K.C., I have created a little montage for you. What we saw, what to avoid and what landed like a bomb in my stomach.
that pretty much sums up the trip...
this was pretty much the extent of our diet - a total belly bomb.
what every foodie needs on a road trip...Food and Wine and some fiber bars, just to keep everything, you know, regular.
boredom at its peak.
what to avoid.
what we were listening to
what the kids were watching...if Barney made you sick before, just try 2 days straight in an enclosed vehicle. Barf.
Here's some nice cows, right? Look a little closer...
this is a zoom in of the picture above. A Fed-Ex anarchy van in a cow field? I have nothing to say about that.
Love Ya, Foodies!
Thanks for hanging around for me. Now, let me get situated in the house and I'll whip up something delish.
