After 4 great years filled with lots of fun, friends, and memories, Nettie and I officially said buh-bye to Turnberry a couple of weeks ago. I don't think anyone really believed we would actually move. In fact I don't think we really believed it ourselves, but it happened. We had a caramel apple party a few weeks before the move to officially say buh-bye. It was a lot of fun, but I can't seem to find the pictures right now. We (with a lot of help from all our really great friends) loaded up the biggest UHaul you can rent and practically filled it up. I know that seems silly for 2 single girls, but you accumulate a lot of stuff in 4 years. The move left us with the biggest mess in our new place, but we are slowly getting organized. The house is looking much better than it did a few days after the move. Luckily the new house is HUGE compared to our apartment and has A LOT of storage space. After searching for days and days and looking at tons of dumpy places we found a really cute house. We're sad to leave all our friends at Turnberry but excited for new adventures and excited for you all to come visit us in our new house.
This is only a small part of the mess we created on moving day and only some of the great people who helped us move. We're so lucky to have such great friends and family!
I never used to be a big fan of dressing up or Halloween until I discovered how much fun it is to do a group costume. The past several years my friends and I have done group themed costumes. Each year the goal is to outdo the year before but still keep it simple, inexpensive, and funny. Most of the usual group is either married, out of town, or just Halloween scrooges this year so I pulled another group to together to try to top last year's oompa loompa costumes by being Costco sample ladies. We had tons of fun making the costumes and getting ready. We showed up to the party in our costumes complete with big hair, makeup, and of course samples. I couldn't stop laughing at how funny we were. Our costumes were a big hit and we had lots of fun doing them. Any good ideas for next year?
