Movin’ On Up (Literally)

Hi, my friends! How is everyone doing on this fine Wednesday morning?

I’m good, thanks for asking :)

I’m a little perturbed though. My night of volunteering ended at 9:00, and I got in my car to drive to 30-ish miles home via the beltway. With a fast speed limit, I thought I’d make it home in 30-35 minutes and be able hit.the.hay.


WTF? Seriously. Seriously? At 9:15 PM on a Tuesday?

I was not happy.

Apparently the beltway shuts down at night for even more construction than usual. And I believe every asshole in Northern Virginia decided to take a late night cruise on 66.

Regardless – it took me 90 minutes to get home and immediately fall into bed.

My vent sesh is over now. Thank you.

Moving On

Today is a big day: We get the keys to our new apartment! I can’t tell you how excited I am. This is just another event that makes me realize “Oh my God. This marriage thing is really going to happen.” :)

Anyway, I’m going to help Cory and his parents move lots of his stuff after work – so I need to head in a little early today :)

Check It Out

One more thing! Make sure to head over to Fitblogger today to see my real- life-friend’s guest post!

If you don’t read her blog, you’re so missing out. Let’s just say – if you like laughing, you’ll like Ashley’s blog.

Wish me luck today, friends! We’re moving stuff to the 4th floor today – and there is no elevator…

Let’s chat –

Is traffic an issue where you live?

Not counting college – how many places have you lived? I’ve known one house as “home” for my entire life!

Do you have any “real life” blogger friends? Who are they? Ashley and I are sorority sisters! :)

    Traffic can be an issue where I live but nothing like the DC region. I lived in DC for about a year. I do not miss that traffic!

  2. says

    Traffic is pretty bad in Dublin but I’m a walker :)

    I lived in quite a few places now! About 5 I think?

    I’m a blogging newbie so I’m just getting to know people. None of my ‘real-life’ friends blog (unless they’re keeping it very quiet!)

  3. says

    I have tons of real life blogger friends! Jess from Stylish and Stealthy, Alyssa from Fashion Fitness Foodie and Jenn from Love Eat Run!

    Thankfully I don’t hit traffic, but when i visit my parents after work there are TONS! but, i usually don’t get too frustrated! Just put on some MJ and start singing and dancing in my car!

    Congrats on moving in together! My bf and I have lived together for 3 years and one thing I have learned is invest in a breakfast tray! haha You deserve to be served breakfast in bed 😉

    I have moved like 827349829384 times in my life. Not so fun when I was a whining teenager, but now I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to grow up predominantly overseas. I happily put up with Northern Virginia traffic to be able to stay in one place for a little while nowadays though! :)

  5. says

    YES traffic is a HUGE issue for me!!! My would-be 35 minute commute to work takes me at least an hour each way because of it. Worse in the snow…and on Friday afternoons in the summer. It is so annoying. I think Toronto may have the worst traffic of all time…

    Congrats on your new apartment! Glad I found your blog :)

    and I’m convinced all va beach drivers are slow. it’s obnoxious. idiots. everywhere.

    I’ve lived in South Jersey, England, North Carolina, and now Virginia Beach. :)
