the moving part is over...

Saturday was moving day, and thanks to my wonderful friends, everything went very smoothly! Between 9 people, 2 trucks and 5 cars, we got it all done in about 2 hours. My new place is now nicely decorated with cardboard boxes and piles all over the place! I bought a couch and bookcase that will be delivered on Saturday, which will help with all the unpacking and arraigning! My bedroom is pretty liveable, and so is the bathroom. I still have a few more loads of new dishes, pots, and pans to wash before the kitchen is unpacked. And then it's time to decorate! Hopefully I'll get everything set up and decorated before Hawaii - so stay tuned for pictures!

After a quick trip to IKEA, a few friends and I headed downtown to see the Sand Sculptures in Pioneer Square (with a name like that - you'd think I still lived in Utah!) They were pretty amazing!
The details and everything were amazing! After the sand sculptures, we hit up Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale! It was great - I got an amazing red pea coat, and now wish that it wasn't July so that I could wear it! I think after a little bit, the boys realized that Nordstrom's probably wasn't the best idea of ways to spend the evening! But I'm glad we went, and can't wait for it to get cold enough to wear my new coat!

Overall, it was a great weekend! Now if I can just survive this upcoming week of craziness!!

I'm so proud of your dedicated blogging! keep it up! These sand sculptures look amazing, they remind me of some I saw in the mall at California once. Looks like fun!
