packing up and the taco bus that I will desperately miss

Tuesday, July 26

Ahhh. By George we've done it! Almost. We've made it to the half-way point on our move across the country. Pretty much by sheer miracle. But we've stopped for a few days to spend some more time with husband's family and celebrate this thing we call life without school - and also make up for lost time in bed with my laptop. It seems we've become quite fond of each other. Poor abandoned thing.
Anyway ... in case you were wondering, this is how you move a set of table lamps. Pajama pants, of course, being the solution to most problems.
Deflating our mattress. Deflating my sister in the process.
Aaaaand ... I'm about to get brutally murdered.
But you getting to see my very first baby swimsuit was totally worth it right?
Enter: taco bus. Tear.
 Yes that is husband's brother. Yes, he is underage. No, he is not available.
Thank you family for helping us move and eating with us at the taco bus and for not judging my dirty house!

ah I'm so sad you're leaving rexburg! I moved from there last fall and I still miss it! I'm sure you'll love your new place though : ]

Stephanie said...

Oh my gosh! That pajama pants idea is seriously the smartest, cutest thing. Why did I know hear about this earlier? I literally moved two lamps out of my apartment today! Hahaha

You're headed to my neck of the woods! Re-rooted, of course, thanks to my Husband's military career. Maybe I'll run into you one day. Aside from the heat this area is LOVELY! Lots and lots to do. <3

We can't wait to have you as a fellow resident here in DC. I have tons of restaurant suggestions and sights you should see. Not just the regular old monuments but the hidden gems.

My friend Maggie emailed me the other day and was like HEY! That cool blogger chick is moving to DC! haha.

Haha the pajama pants cracked me up! Brilliant.

And if you think the taco bus is great, wait until you get to DC and see the food trucks. Sushi, Thai, Mexican, Italian, etc. all in one place. Oh, the possibilities!

Much love,

Packing and being remnant has gotta be hard. At least you can have other people do stuff and not feel too bad. PS- I have the same exact PJs from Old Navy :) Super comfy! Good luck with the move! DC will be great- such a cool place to live.

Alison said...

ok, let's talk for a minute about how cute that baby bathing suit is. i forget that people can be that small.

srsly.

safe travels!

Collins said...

that swim suit is pretty precious!

Julie M. said...

Okay, so this may come across completely rude, but I feel it needs to be said. I was super excited as a fellow Mormon, to find an awesome Mormon fashion blogger. Loving the style, everything. And then I checked out your photo shoot from Ruche. Was there really no way to be modest? I was so disappointed that the photo shoot took over for your temple attire. You know what I mean?! Remember the world is watching!

Born of the Sea said...

Glad to see you are enjoying life without school. I feel ya! This year is the first year I am not taking classes and working! Feels good! And P.S. that baby swimsuit is adorabllleee.

Hi Sydney, I never really posted a comment before but I am an avid reader! I stumbled on your blog late last year, to me, you seem like someone who would be a great friend to have. So I followed your blog and it's on of my highlights of my bloglovin' reel. You and husbands relationship is adorable and now that you are a plus baby, I'm so happy for you. I'm from the D.C. area and I Thought I should comment so that if you ever have an event I won't be the weirdo that silently follows your blog, I would at least left some word with you. But good luck on your move and I hope you love D.C. cause I do and I'm happy to hear about your adventures in my city!

It looks like you're managing to have fun during this process of moving across the country : )

Ashley Lois said...

My husband and I just moved about 30 minutes away from the town we used to live in and it was ridiculous! I don't know how you are moving across the country and staying sane!
