Our weekend in an instagram...

Monday, July 9, 2012

This past weekend included a lot of hard work, heavy lifting, and sweating! But, before all that began... we had dinner at McAlisters with my parents and...

and she loved it! Not only because she got to see us, but they also give her her own bowl of water AND a bowl of turkey. Which just happens to be her favorite!!

That evening, mom and dad helped us with some packing before we got some sleep, and began the huge process of packing it all up on Saturday.

Saturday morning, the mil and my mom came to help pack the rest of our belongings in bins. We sold a lot of our furniture, and other items so we thought we didn't have that much more to pack. Boy were we wrong. Thankfully, the fil and our friend Craig came over to help with some VERY heavy lifting.

After we couldn't do anything else physically, we headed to my folks house for dinner and some rest. This was the first time for me to stay at their house in at least four years. And of course, Mar Belle thought she could whine/pout her way into letting us let her sleep with us...

however, it didn't work. LOL Yet she did come and check on us twice during the night. =)

We woke up Sunday morning and played with little MB until mom had breakfast waiting on us...

There wasn't a Sunday morning that I remember not having pancakes for breakfast.

Of course, pancakes can make you really sleepy and ready for a mid morning nap...

But, there was no time for a nap for us. We gave the Mars some more loving and off to finish the packing and loading we went.

But we stopped and got some fuel for energy.

One for me, the Mr and the fil.

I should have gotten a before shot, but this is what we walked into Sunday morning before loading up...

It doesn't look like a lot, but we filled my car to the max, the Mr's truck to the max and had to rent a u-haul to pull behind his truck. And yes, it was loaded top to bottom, side to side.

After loading and saying our goodbyes, we took off headed to Bham.

Next time we pull into Meridian, we will officially be out of towners. How crazy is that?!?!

We seriously could not have done all of this without our parents' help. They were life savers this weekend. Just another reason why we can say we have the best family, ever!


  1. Yay I'm so happy for you Joy! What a whirlwind weekend!

  2. She is so stinkin' cute! Congrats on officially making the move!
