This cookbook is pretty awesome. It has some great … Continue reading »

Exploring the Neighborhood

Hello! Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days; Nick and I have been busy unpacking, nesting, and exploring. 🙂 Grandma came down to have lunch with me on Wednesday. Grandpa repaired a drawer for us that needed some minor fixing (thanks, Grandpa!) and Grandma brought it down with her. There is a burger restaurant … Continue reading »

Seattle Apartment – Before & After

Yesterday’s move from the apartment to the townhouse went well. Thankfully, the weather cooperated and there wasn’t any rain. We had two pickup trucks to haul our furniture and each truck took two trips, so we were done pretty quickly. The only casualty was a spare glass Pyrex measuring cup… and we had a few … Continue reading »

We Have TV… and PBS!

Nick just finished hooking up the TV and components… and we’re very, very happy to report that we have PBS again! We don’t watch a ton of TV, so we just have an inexpensive indoor TV antenna that we use to pick up basic channels. PBS was the main channel we watched back in Michigan, … Continue reading »

Bye Bye, Apartment!

Just turned in our keys! We went over there this morning to pick up a few final things and do some last minute cleaning. We’re going to set up internet at our house today, so expect a longer blog post later.

Last Minute Packing

Our computers and computer desks are over at the house, so we are dependant on our phones for Internet access for now. We just finished packing our TV and our apartment is looking pretty bare. We found a box of graham crackers and a jar of applesauce, so at least we won’t starve lol!

Last Night at the Apartment

Nick and I have been spending today moving things over to our new house. I think we’ve done five trips so far, but Nick thinks it might be six. We’re pretty exhausted now and we’re taking a break to have Pagliacci Pizza for dinner. We were lucky this morning, because it wasn’t raining. After our … Continue reading »

Volunteer Park Conservatory

The last two days have been really nice, sunny days with temperatures in the 70’s. Today, however, Margaret and Donna got to experience a cool, wet Seattle day. Nick and I spent the morning taking a load of boxes over to the house and setting up some things there. It’s really starting to feel like home. … Continue reading »

Alki and Pike Place Market

This morning, we all went to West Seattle to meet up with Mom and Amanda. We got there a little early, so we stopped to take some pictures of downtown (see picture above – the Space Needle is orange “galaxy gold” in celebration of the Seattle World’s Fair 50th anniversary). We walked around Alki Beach … Continue reading »
