Holy. Cow.

This past week has been insane! We found out our move in date was February 25th. So I scrambled to pack our home into boxes while Nathan was studying his guts out. Luckily he was able to help a little.
So Monday rolls around and Morgan brought his trailer over. Josh and Kevin also came to help. It took two trailer loads. But we made it over to our new place. We ordered a pizza and the guys took off...including Nathan.

So there I was in the house, surrounded by a million boxes. (how do people move when they live in a whole house? with and stuff? I NEVER want to move.) But I was off to the store. Our new house has a separate dining room (how fancy!) and a sliding glass door to a deck. It was starting to get dark, and I didn't want to be home alone, with a giant exposed window.

I got a curtain rod and double checked the width of my curtains and came back home. I installed the rod, and hung my curtains...then remembered I didn't check the height.

Cool. And even though they are ridiculously too short...they are still hanging. I haven't gotten back to exchange them. :)

Well, as of tonight, we are officially out of our old place. I was sad for about...3 seconds. And that was when I was sitting in the car, when we were about to drive away and saw these two sitting on the porch.

And then I was over it. Now I get to unpack...while Nathan studies. (luckily his anatomy midterm is Saturday. wish him luck!)

I'll post pictures of our place...when it's not boxes.

It's been awhile friends. A lot has happened in the last few weeks. I'll break down into a few sections. :)

Nathan: He is absolutely rocking anatomy (and all his other classes for that matter)! This is probably the most intense class he'll take, and he has an A. Just last week he got a 95% on a lecture quiz. The class average was 55%. How does he do it? Well first, hard work. He studies a lot, and is on campus in the lab frequently. Second, he loves it. He really enjoys learning about the human body. So it's fun for him.

Alyson: Work is still amazing. I never thought I would enjoy working as much as I do. And the people I work with are awesome and so talented. Our company is planning on partnering with up to 30 small businesses this year. This means up to 30 websites to design. It's a lot of fun, my co-worker/friend Tanner and I make the website team. I design, and he builds. So it works out well, I don't have to do any of the back-end stuff that I couldn't do...ever. 

Our home: We're moving. Just a week ago I was on KSL looking at housing, not sure why, because we still have 6 months to our contract. But I found a place. It's perfect. It's a mile north of UVU, and 2.5 miles south of my work. It's the upstairs of a house, with a huge living room, larger kitchen and a deck off the dining room. It's super close to school and work. We ended up going over there the next day, and putting a deposit on it the following day! So we're moving the end of this month. We're in the process of showing our apartment and trying to get someone to take over the rest of our contract. It's been crazy, trying to schedule everyone coming to look at it. But moving just feels right, and we're really excited for our third move in our short marriage. :) 

Our furniture: Basically...sometimes I feel like I belong on a tv show. Kind of like Extreme Couponers.. but maybe...Extreme Furniture Rotating. Let me explain. When we first moved to Utah, we scored a matching couch and love seat for $125. We didn't have room for the love seat, so we sold it a week later for $150. We also bought a tv stand for $40. We decided when we move we wanted to use our teal dresser/cake stand as a cute new tv stand and get a different dresser for the bedroom. So I put it online, sold it for $50. Then here comes the kicker. Our new place has a nice, huge, new microfiber couch that will stay there for us. So we decided to sell our couch. It sold yesterday for $200. Umm...thank you..I'll be here all week. But the week after that I'm I better get packing..
