I’m taking a break from the insanity that was this week to draft another edition of Friday’s 10 Happy Things! This week has been a great ball of activity as we’ve moved out of Philly to Lehigh Valley. We still have to unpack all of our belongings over the weekend. On the bright side, our new furniture is arriving tomorrow. Can’t wait!
For now, here are ten things that kept me sane and happy while I juggled packing, loading/unloading cargo, and multiple trips between two cities. They’re still moving-related.
- Having an extra pair of hands
I’m used to moving by myself and handling the logistics without help. I’m so grateful that I have my husband this time around!
- Having internet on the first day
We didn’t have internet for two weeks when we arrived in Philly last year, but this time we called ahead to make sure we’ll be connected the day we move.
- Using NFC to wirelessly transfer my photos
I took the picture above before we got connected, so I was still on mobile data. I used my camera then enabled NFC to transfer it to my phone for editing without having to pull out any cords or my Macbook. Woot technology!
- Staying on top of everything with Pushbullet
I love this app so much! Had to work today while Michael drove back to Philly for one last trip, and I was able to communicate with him without taking my eyes off the computer. Yay for streamlined workflows!
- Assembling furniture together
We bought our furniture in IKEA. Assembling them was challenging but a lot of fun, and it was a new experience for us as a couple.
- Friendly neighbors
Everyone’s been so nice! Even the pizza delivery guy welcomed us to the neighborhood when he didn’t recognize us straight away.
- Pizza party!
Celebrated our first night here with pizza, breadsticks, and lava cake. MMMM.
- Loving our new place
I can’t wait to decorate! I still need something for our walls. Any suggestions?
- Orange is the New Black Season 3
It came out a day early! YASS MATT MCGORRY MY FUTURE SECOND HUSBAND. <3
- Having a full night’s sleep after a long day
I don’t get many of those nowadays.
Regularly scheduled blogging will resume next week. Have a great weekend!
