Moving On: June Edition (Volume 2)

Alternate title: #Blessed

Other alternate title: Dear Lord I Have an Lovely Fiance

Lovely on all levels

Do y’all remember just about a year ago, when Roomie and I moved? It was a wildly hectic time full of travel and job changes and Upperville. As a refresher: we had a hard move-out date for our apartment. The weekend of Upperville. While I was competing with the Frankenbean, ex-Manfriend basically did all the heavy lifting of moving all my stuff out. And by basically I mean entirely.

Literally while I was in this specific round, he was loading all my crap into a truck

I’ve been with Roomie and her ManDude in our townhouse for the last year and it’s been awesome. But it’s also time for some changes.

First off, Roomie and ManDude eloped! They were already engaged and planning their wedding, but didn’t want to wait to be married. So they straight up just got married. Ya girl here showed up to take pics and 3rd-wheel their elopement brunch because I love them so much.

So stunning and sweet and intimate and wonderful and check those shoes

It also means that I went from living with my best friend and her boyfriend (fairly normal) to living with my best friend and her fiance (pushing it a bit) to living with my best friend and her husband (full on You Me and Dupree).

The other change is that ex-Manfriend and I are also getting married soon (duh). And after close to two years of living 2+ hours apart, he just got a job offer back here so we can get our first place together! It’s been a whole long hiring process for him, so we’re beyond thrilled to have things moving forward.

So with all these big changes, the stars are aligning and we managed to find a really great place with a really lovely landlord (seriously, he’s just a delight) that’s in a great location for a great price. Our official move in date is at the end of June!

What else is going on at the end of June?

You guessed it.

Lake Placid.

So for the second year in a row, my dearest betrothed is tasked with moving for me because of a horse show. I want to promise him that this won’t become a pattern, but apparently we only move during peak show season…sooooo…????


Frankie ships up on Monday, I’ll spend Tuesday driving up, and I’ll be returning Sunday.

I guess I’ll return home…to a different home?

BRB frantically trying to pack everything I own in one weekend before leaving.

I may be a little behind on the blogging front as I try to juggle packing, a week long horse show, and then arranging a new apartment and adjusting to living with my giant ManCreature while also keeping up with a busy season at work. But I pinky promise to take tons of pics and share all my adventures in Lake Placid, and I’ll pick it back up as soon as possible!

    Glad to hear that ex-Manfriend/Dearest Betrothed is moving back, and you no longer had to be Dupree!

    Oops, but right up there with the last three times I’ve moved, I’ve had a broken bone necessitating someone move me. I prefer your method.

    Also, roomie, I SEE those Manolos gurl. Heart eye emojis.

      Gurl she found a different brand that looks identical for a teeny tiny fraction of the price. Cause she’s gorgeous AND a genius.

    Eeek, very exciting! Double eeek on those CUTE shoes!


    • hellomylivia 06/21/2018 / 1:20 pm

      Right?! All she wanted was to wear those shoes for her wedding, and she got her wish ❤

    First thing I noticed was the shoes… Soon to be ex roomie knows what’s up. That’s great news that all the stars are aligning. Better probably if they’d aligned a few weeks later. But hey, it’ll all work out, and you’ll just have to spoil that amazing fiance of yours when you get back as a thank you.

      We were just laughing that the timing for me to move literally could not be worse, but we’re excited that it’s finally actually happening!!

    It sounds hectic but super exciting – good luck (for the move and the comp)!

      It’s incredibly exciting, it’s going to be a whirlwind!

    Omg those shoes and her dress – LOVE.

    Best of luck with everything. Don’t forget to take a deep breath – preferably with wine in hand 😉

    When it rains, it pours, right? So many exciting things going on! I totally relate. But it’s all good stuff, so try to enjoy as much as possible!
