Hello! It’s moving day over here. We picked up the truck at 8 this morning, and headed right over to Tim’s sister’s apartment. She is also in the middle of a move and is lending us a bunch of her furniture so she doesn’t have to put it in storage. My uncle met us over there to move that stuff from Katie’s and into our new place first. Part one is done! We’re off to grab some food, then we’re back to tackle part two: all the furniture in our current place, plus all our packed up boxes. We are happy we technically have until May 31st to be completely out of here, as it gives us time to clean, go through the basement, etc.
Hope these links keep you busy this afternoon!

Readers, let’s chat! What was the best part of your week, and what’s up for the weekend?
Best part of my week was the lunch date I had with Tim yesterday downtown. This weekend is not only moving craziness, but our friends Brett and Jamie’s bridal shower, my grandmother’s five year memorial service, etc. I am so happy I have next Monday off from work as well!
Athena, this is great! I love your Friday Favorite posts. I’ve been finding myself looking forward to them recently – they have such great material in them, particularly your blogging and social media links. I love The Blogger Project, and I think I found out about it through you! So, thank you!
This weekend I will be working out, of course, and relaxing at home, catching up on some overdue blog posts and trying to relax since my work schedule is about to get INsane. I might try some of the recipes in this post, too. 🙂 Good luck with the move!
Thanks so much, Ellyn. So happy you enjoy F&F Friday Favorites so much! Good luck with your crazy upcoming work schedule!

Of course! Hope you had a great weekend!
Good luck with the move!!!
Thanks friend! It’s finally starting to feel like home!
Thank you so much for sharing.
I made the sweet potato raisin cookies and they came out mushy 🙁
I can’t wait for Friday Favorites this week!
