The Real Deal

August 2, 2008

Okay, kids, here’s the deal…

TBNJoe arrived on Saturday. We went to look at six apartments in the Chicagoland area on Monday. We applied for one that evening. We were approved for it Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon we left for a family vacation and we just now returned. We’re set to move in to our new, beautiful apartment on Wednesday.
So in other words, expect a blogging hiatus. I am nowhere near packed. We’re still setting up financial stuff, utility stuff, truck rental stuff, etc. I may be without internet access for quite some time. Sad face.
But send me good vibes as we attempt to move from Indiana and Minnesota simultaneously into a second floor apartment in the Chicago suburbs. (It truly is a beautiful place… all new kitchen appliances, new bathroom, two bedrooms, washer and dryer in the apt, dishwasher, gas fireplace, balcony, one free accent wall in the color of our choice – we picked olive green!)
And finally, can you believe Chelsie and Mark got kicked off So You Think You Can Dance last night?! I’m calling that the let down of the summer. 😦

    Woohoo! Look out, Chicago! Everything sounds awesome. Jealous of the washer/dryer! That’s such an awesome perk. Good luck with the move!

    Chelsie and Mark were my picks to go home. Courtney and Katee are amazing. I was more attached to Mark than I was to Chelsie BUT Joshua and Twitch? LOVE.

    welcome to the burbs! I will send you your welcoming kit of reflectors so that you don’t get hit by BMWs and maps to nearby malls to start hating because of the suburban kids 😉
