Moving on

We just put our apartment up on craigslist.  I am SO excited to be moving out--we have so many plans with Council Bluffs and Emily, and the 4 of us can't wait to live together.  If you don't know us, you might think it's weird--but trust me, it's awesome.  They have a gigantic house.  Kyle and I basically have a floor to ourselves (I guess we'll let them come down to use the laundry room, but only if they let us up to use the kitchen).   We're saving money, they're making money.  It works out great.  Even more than that, we all just are such good friends and love spending time together.  Emily and I have tremendous plans for the summer.  We have Google notebooks FULL of ideas.  Kyle and CB also have plans--manly plans like building a fence with their shirts off.  (Kyle wants me to emphasize that that is not in a gay way.)  The idea to live together started out as a joke, but the more we thought about it, the more serious we became!  Ever since we decided, it's pretty much all we talk/think about.   We're going to hang out all summer anyways, so we may as well make it super convenient and just live together.

So there are tons of reasons to be excited about leaving.  But at the same time--it just hit me that I have to leave the first home I have made with Kyle.  Isn't that kind of sad? Am I weird to feel a little bittersweet about it?  I mean, I for sure am not having second thoughts about leaving, and I know that we are going to have many homes together and each one is going to be special.   I'll be fine, and actually I can't wait to get rid of it.  Moving is going to be so much fun.  But I wouldn't be me if I didn't feel a little sad to say goodbye to our cute little apartment.  

Here's the link on craigslist.  I don't foresee problems with selling our contract (marriage housing is in huge demand in Provo) so I'm not soliciting--mostly I just want Mom to make sure there are no typos :)

And if you happen to be looking for a sweet apartment, I would love to sell mine to you.  I don't want anyone uncoolvto move in--is it lame that I totally care about that? It's like selling your puppy to someone who will give it a good home--only this is the good home that I want to go to someone awesome.  It would be fun if I knew the folks moving in.

Your profile picture just made me really hungry for a hamburger. We should bust out the Smokey Joe as soon as the weather gets better.

I think moving in with CB and Emily sounds like so much fun! We're living in a dorm this summer... that means 40 other people around. And I'm so excited.

I am so so excited! I probably think about it 10 times a day. Every time I have something hard I have to do, I'll say to myself, "it's okay, I just have to get through this and then Becca and Kyle will be living with us..." Oh, what fun we'll have!

Congrats on the move and on finishing school-- by the way - spent a solid hour with friends listening to them record Flight of the Conchords "Business Time" around a bonfire- so funny!
