Whew! We did it. I unpacked the last of the boxes this week and we are really getting settled in our new beautiful home. Sorry about my blog-world absence...I've just had a million other things on my to-do list! The one post I've been really excited to write and share with y'all is this one. And I promise (really, I do) to get back on track with the blog soon!
It's no secret that my family has been in the process of moving for the past 6 months. We've lived at my parents house, the dorms, a friend's house and finally - our new house. This football life can be a real test of faith, relationships and patience sometimes, but I wouldn't trade our life for the world. Before we started the moving process I thought about how I should start writing everything down that we did, so that I didn't have to think so hard about it next time around. Did I do it? No. I started throwing our possessions into the nearest box/tote/trash bag, finished off our last few bottles of wine and went on our way. After going through this move (our first cross-country), I'm FINALLY going to do it - make the list. But if I've learned one thing in this move, it's that I sure can't do it alone. I'm no expert. So...football sista's to the rescue! I've compiled "The Football Wife's Ultimate Moving Tip List". This is truly stuff from the pros. Some of these women have moved 10+ times! I've added a few of my own tips too cuz I guess I have learned some tricks myself! I'll definitely be checking back on this next time I have to move...but let's hope it's not anytime soon!
Before You Leave . . .
Once You're There . . .
After compiling all of these tips I'm really regretting not asking these questions earlier! So many things I would have done differently!
Special thanks to my Football Wife Sisters!
