Well, I must apologize. I know I have been a major slacker since I have only posted two blogs in the past three weeks.. but that is what happens when you are in the middle of moving and are without cable and internet for two weeks, which by the way, how in the world did people ever survive without those two very important things?! So many things have happened in the past two weeks that I want to share with you and I will begin on May 2, 2009. This was the day that Josh graduated from Martin Methodist College with a Criminal Justice degree!! I am soo proud of him! He worked so hard and it has finally paid off. Congratulations baby!
It was such a wonderful & busy day! After graduation, we had everyone over to our apartment for a graduation party... who knew our little one bedroom apartment could hold close to 20 people?! Ha. I made BBQ for the first time and everyone liked it! It was very simple. All you need is a boston butt, a bottle of liquid smoke, and a crock pot. Let it cook all night on low and after it is done you just shred it up. I put it back in the crock pot and put some Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce on it and let it sit for a few more hours. It was really good! We also had potato salad, baked beans, chips, cole slaw, lemon ice box pie, and a HUGE oreo cake that I made.
Pretty much everything was already packed up so after we ate everyone helped out and loaded all our things into the Uhaul trailers! It was pretty cool. We had our own moving crew of about 8 big guys and 7 women!! It went by really fast. Josh's graduation was at 10 am and by 2:00 we had already had a graduation party, moved everything out, and was already on the road! It was kinda sad leaving our apartment.. but we were off to bigger and better things :) I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped us move. So thank you mom, Michael, Joe, Paige, Sarah, Tiffani, Adam, Uncle Dan, Aunt Mattie, Jacob, Rachel, Brett, and Puddin!! There is NO way we could have done it all without you and we love you all :)
Moving from Pulaski to Ashland City! Everything we own in those 2 Uhaul trailers!
Our original plan was to stay the night with Josh's parents because we were not supposed to move into our new place until the next day after church. So we went to Opry Mills that afternoon because Josh's new Bass Pro & Oakley gift cards were already burning a hole in his pocket! As soon as we left Opry Mills, Donnie Kemp (the man we are renting from) called and said it was ready to move into that night! So we did! Ha! It was a super busy day but was all worth it. Now we are in our new place in Ashland City and we absolutely LOVE it :)
ps. pictures of our new place coming soon!
