Weekend Recap: Moving On Up

Last week was INSANE at work. By the time Friday night came around all I want to do was order take out sushi and be a bum. I did order the sushi, but I was not a bum. I spent most of the night getting ready for my big move the next morning. 
Hunan favorite take out spot in DC. I order from there A LOT.

The next morning I woke up VERY Early (for a Saturday). I did a few more things to get ready for moving day and then I went to CrossFit. In hindsight, I am not sure that was the best idea since I had a long day of lifting and loading ahead, but I loved the WOD and wanted to do it. So I did:

50 Thrusters (45/35)
40 Hand-Release Push Ups
30 Sit Ups
20 Box Jumps (24/20)
10 Slam balls (20/15)
Row 750m
10 Slam Balls (20/15)
20 Box Jumps (24/20)
30 Sit Ups
40 Hand-Release Push Ups
50 Thrusters (45/35)

I finished in 24:16 Rx. The thrusters at the very end were the hardest part in my opinion because my arms were shot by then. After CF, Josh and I refueled with Brooklyn Bagel.

The rest of the day was spent cleaning and moving. I hired a moving company and it was a great decision. Despite not having a lot of stuff, I still have very heavy furniture and unlike in Texas, none of my friends own trucks. So the moving company was money, and by 3:30pm I was fully moved in to my new little studio. 
1. I got really sad when all of my stuff was gone in my old apartment. Alycyn and I have lived their for a little over 5 1/2 years and we have made some amazing memories there. I will always love that place.
2. Sitting in my new place. It is TEENY TINY but it is all I need.
3. The view from the roof of my building. Makes up for that small square footage.

Even though Josh and I had a busy day there was no time to rest. Immediately after moving, we got ready and went over to Lanie & Dave's Holiday Housewarming. There was scrumptious food and wonderful company, and even though I was exhausted, I had a great time. I even got a second wind and went out on H-Street with the ladies!
Emily took this pic and I love it. I don't know what we were talking about but I think it proves the state of my delirium by this point. Alycyn was sad because it is one of her last weekends in DC (which trust me I am also SOOOOO sad about) but I think I was still thinking of the succulent mussels we had just consumed at Granville Moore's. I love you Al! I am so excited for you and your new adventure!

On Sunday, Josh and I ran a million errands. We adopted two little girls at church for their Saint Nicholas project and spent a lot of time at Target picking out their gifts. I also bought a lot of things you forget you need when moving into a new place: Windex, paper towels, trash bags, etc. By 5pm when Josh and I got to church to deliver the gifts I was EXHAUSTED. After church, I ate dinner and passed out at like 8:45pm. It was a busy but fantastic weekend.

How was your weekend?


  1. When are you inviting me over to see the new place?

  2. Wish I had all your energy. Be safe and take some self defense classes for me. You are so precious to us. Love you and keep smiling

    1. Definitely Will! Love you Cyndi!!!
