Lots of Random Things

I'm sorry for being MIA over the last week or so, I've been busy with all of the graduation festivities and packing. I'm a little freaked out, the bf and I move on Friday and we've been packing since the families left Friday night. I'm also excited about the move but it is going to be a big change.

Since my graduation post was like 3 sentences I thought that I'd write a little bit more about it. Long story short, I definitely felt like a pompous ass with all of the stuff we had to wear. Although I have to admit the hat was really cool. The hood kind of choked me. But it was still really cool, as the bf and I were walking to the graduate waiting area we definitely got lots of fun looks from the families of the undergraduate graduates as well as the undergrads themselves. Did I mention that the vice president also spoke and received an honorary degree? He did and didn't stick his foot in his mouth which was probably a relief for many!

Moving has been an interesting experience, it is amazing how much stuff the bf and I have acquired in the last year. Thankfully, we've got awesome friends who have helped us pack for the last couple of days. Also, we were lucky to find a consignment furniture shop who will pay us cash for the furniture that we don't have room for (we're going to be moving from a 3 bedroom house into a 2 bedroom apartment).

Also, USC Emily at From the Land of Cotton has given me the One Lovely Blog Award. Thanks!

I wish you all the best with moving. My advice, since I just did this a few weeks ago- get yourself some sleep. Don't get too stressed out with packing or anything. BTW... congrats on the award. You deserve it!

Clay and I moved twice in seven months. From South Carolina to Indiana and back. I had no idea how much junk we had to begin with, but while we were in Indiana we acquired A LOT. Now I am steadily sorting through everything... five months later.Haha
