The drive across the country is kind of a blur to me now. Joe drove the entire way, which oddly made the three full days go by at lightening speed (I hover around 10ish miles over the speed limit....him? a little higher than that.). Somehow, the endless highways quickly slipped by only interrupted by bathroom breaks, bad hotels, and some surprisingly good eats. I guess the movies on the iPad helped, too.
I can't wait until we've closed on the new house and settled into a routine. This has been an incredible adventure, but I'm ready to go back to "boring". The moving truck comes in about two and a half weeks (from storage).
I'm trying to stay somewhat connected to the blog and now that we're in Joe's downtown apartment, I have access to an actual computer. So here are some things I found while wasting time on the internet:
+ I thought everyone knew that this is a positive by-product of having a stay at home parent!
+ Two class acts: Bobbi Brown interviews Kerry Washington.
+ I have heard that heating your eyelash curler with your blow dryer will help your curl last longer, but some of the other makeup hacks on this list are new to me!
+ If you want to read about a young family exploring Italy, check out my friend, Melissa's blog: Roman Reboot. I met her back in my pre-kid, professional days. Not only does she have the two CUTEST boys on the planet, I love her easy, funny writing style.
+ I'm intrigued by the tagline of this book, Bully Nation: Why America's Approach to Childhood Aggression is Bad for Everyone. The author claims that our nation's well-intentioned anti-bullying efforts are counter productive.
+ Have you heard of this podcast? From the creators of This American Life, it's a weekly update focusing on a single unsolved mystery called Serial and it's getting a lot of buzz.
+ You know I'm a fan of Birchbox, so I perked up when I heard about Target's take on the beauty box from The Glossarie. Intrigued? Why, yes. Yes I am :)
Until next time (who knows when that will be)--have a great weekend!
