We made it! We're moved in, most of the boxes are unpacked (thanks to lots of help from family and friends!), and we're settling back into life again. I am so grateful for everyone who helped us pull off this move; I know there is no way I could have done it by myself.
It is so good to be home; how we have missed our family, our friends, and all the familiarities of this city over the last 5 1/2 years we've been away! And yes, I'm also thrilled to be back to shopping at Kroger (Dillons) again.
I stole away early this morning to check out the Dillons store closest to us and do you know how nice it felt to walk through those doors? Like usual, the mark-downs were plentiful: I scored two half-gallons of lemonade for $0.49 each and a half gallon of milk for $0.99! I feel spoiled to be back in the land of Kroger again, even if it meant leaving CVS behind. I'm excited to re-learn the ropes of bargain shopping here; it will be a fun new adventure!
In other news, I got this wild idea to have a yard sale this weekend. We're in a great location for yard sales and it's been a long time since I've had one, so I was itching to do one again. Plus, I decluttered so much stuff in the process of moving and was hoping make a little cash off of it in order to purchase some needed things for our new home. Provided the weather cooperates and I'm able to get everything priced and set up, we'll be running the sale Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning.
Thanks again for all of your patience with me over the last six weeks or so. You all have been so gracious to contribute guest posts, compile deal posts, and to overlook the fact that I've been absent so much of the time around here recently. Now that my morning sickness is subsiding (yay!) and our move is behind us, I'm looking forward to jumping back into blogging with both feet!
