{One Woman and U-Haul}

The other day I was having a conversation with a childhood friend of mine, and of course we were talking about my big move and how I was preparing for it. She said to me - "so are you getting Two Men and a Truck to help you move?" and I replied "nope, try one woman and a U-Haul" - and we both laughed hysterically. In reality $3000 vs. $600 just seemed a lot more practical...and using that money to go back into the big shopping spree I'm ready to have now that the move is almost over, sealed the deal - lol!

uhaul I simply wanted to check in and let you know that I'm still alive, and haven't yet been buried under boxes. This week has been extremely stressful and emotional and it seems that every second was consumed by my move {hence my disappearing act this week}. This afternoon I will be loading up the truck with all my goods {a lot more stuff that I had originally planned, but I can throw things out once I get there} and then early tomorrow morning I will be on my way to New York City - me in the driver's seat and Addison {my dog} next to me. As a heads up - I will go missing again on the blog until next week, but follow me on Instagram and Facebook over the weekend to get updates and a live stream of pics. 

THANK YOU lovely readers for your well wishes and good thoughts - please continue to send up prayers that everything goes smoothly with the drive up. I honestly can't wait until next week to get back on schedule writing my first post from the Big Apple. Until then...

  1. People will read this blog years from now and say, "Check this girl out...she rolled into NYC in a U-haul and today she OWNS this city!" :) Have a safe trip, Jessica! We're going to miss you!

  2. Blessings to you and Addison!

  3. Wow, I just saw that you're moving! How exciting. I hope everything goes perfectly smooth!

    By the way... you are looking amazing girl! :)

  4. I wish I had done what you're doing years ago, which would have entailed a much bigger truck and a longer U-Haul/trip from California, but I guesss I'm not brave enough. I'm trying to move from an apartment into a condo 7 miles away and its stressing me out. ;-)
    Congratulations on your decision to move and good luck with everything.
    You look great - not stressed at all!
    Have a safe trip.
