*Warning* The last two weeks have been such a blur, so this post is going to have a ridiculous amount of pictures to explain everything. Also, I'm currently enjoying a Clay Aiken concert on Weta, so I'm a little swoon-y. :) (Ok, A LOT swoon-y.)
Well, after four and a half days of driving and just as long unpacking, we've made it to our new home in Maryland! More or less, this is the route we took (Huzzah for Paint! :) stopping on all the red dots.
The trip was excruciatingly long (I hate long car rides, we were in one fifth of all of the states!) and I am sooo happy it's over. It's not something I would like to repeat any time in the near future. I really like being home though. Well, not home, I'm not living in the house I grew up in, but it's home enough. :) But before I get ahead of myself, I do believe I owe the blogging world a little memoir about my cross country move!
First things first, David graduated! I'm so happy for him. :) Now we both have college degrees and are ready to occupy those minimum wage retail jobs!! (Sometimes I hate the real world.)
Frontier Pies (which I used to work at, the summer we got engaged) for David's graduation linner. (It was too late for lunch but too early for dinner...). They have amazing pies!! We ordered a cherry cheesecake pie and we had to get the entire pie it was so good.
The commencement ceremony. See David? I put a star around him for you.
Nacho Libre? It's so stupid, but I love it! They have the same corn! ("Get that corn outta my face!" :D) It's so delicious. (And the reason my arm is all bent and funny is because there's a ladybug on my wrist.)
Last trip to the diner. (Remember from this post?)
this post.) We were so busy packing we couldn't even be in...
We also did a few fun things in the process of packing. Without any breaks, it was sure thing that we would go insane.
huckleberries! We didn't want them to go to waste (they're super expensive to buy and no where to be found back east) so what do we do? Make jam of course. Have I ever made jam? No. Did I even know how to make jam? No. Did we have the supplies for making jam? No. Were we leaving town in 16 hours? Yes. It was a little ambitious, I'm surprised I even took on the task. I read up the little insert in the canner we got and went to work! It was crazy, fast-paced, really hot, but a lot of fun.
Tuesday morning rolled around and it was time to say goodbye to Rexburg for good.
See all that trash? Most of it is ours, no joking!
In Omaha, Nebraska, we went to a burger joint called Brewburgers, which was on the show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. (Just like the diner mentioned previously.)
And there you have it, one ridiculously long post for one ridiculously long journey. I hope you enjoyed it. :) I might even post pictures of our new abode if we ever finish unpacking. :)
