Adventures in Homeownership: Moving Day

On Saturday, May 26, my husband and I began our newest adventure! Living in San José.

Our big day started off with some friends picking up/buying our fridge. The fridge was so big, we had to take the front door off the hinges. (Note to self: don't pack up the hinges in a random box, or you will have to go to the hardware store and buy new hinges. Like we did.) Of course "Grandpa Wing" had to give the little guy a ride on the hand truck after loading up the fridge.

We decided that it would be a good investment in sanity and physical anguish to hire a moving company. We decided to go with XO Moving. (See their Yelp review here.) Emil was very helpful in getting us set up for the big day, and the moving men who helped us move were fantastic. The movers were on time and fabulously helpful. My parents and my bestie also came to help us tidy up after the movers. Their help was invaluable. We could not have done it without them!

Goodbye Turlock House. 

Once we got to San Jose, the moving men began unpacking and did so on time and under budget! Mom and Dad came and helped set the basics up.There were boxes everywhere, but it was awesome to know that we were finally in our new home.


  1. Good luck with the whole move - I'm about to make one myself... not looking forward to it, but it will be a fun adventure too (or so I'm telling myself)! : ) And I love your idea for the wreath - I thought about flowers back in April/May, but I didn't have enough cute felt in pinks and yellows... but next year, it's ON! : )

    Also, just in case you didn't know, you're a no-reply blogger so I couldn't email respond to your comment... you can find a tutorial to help you fix that here. You'll probably get lots more comments/replies to your comments from bloggers if you do that too! : )

    1. Thanks, Mel! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the info!
      I was using Google+ rather than the blogger profile, so I wasn't sure how to fix it. ( I am still not sure how to address the issue using a Google+ profile.) I just decided to revert back to the blogger profile, and then change back to Google+. I hope that helps!
