friday

we got off early thursday afternoon and signed all he documents for the closing of our home! the one we were selling, not the one we are buying…that won’t be done until August 18th! we had to sign all the documents early so that we could completely move out on friday.

a HUGE thank you to our sweet friends, britt & ludwig, for sticking a roof over our heads during the little interim we have from closing on our old home and waiting for the new one to be done being built. and for letting us use their truck for all the misc. items we had. we are extremely grateful to have such generous and willing friends to help us during this insanely stressful time!
so…be prepared to see a lot more of them, ya know, since we will be living with them! hehe

then it was off to u-village! {britt had never been…waaattttt??}
my main focus was finding all of our flatware, barware and dinnerware at crate & barrel. and guess what, i did! here’s the silverware we picked out! super simple but would still present nicely on a place setting!
can you guys tell i am just having a ball getting to choose all new stuff??? i’m on cloud 9!

after all the shopping shenanigans we headed home and rested for a good 30 minutes before having to leave to attend our friend’s one year anniversary of opening their bottleshop! we are so happy that they are doing so well! and what a turnout!

grown up date night! even though jaz has been gone for a couple weeks now, we have been so busy with the house{s} that we haven’t had time to just enjoy ourselves, until tonight!

after we closed out at brigids we went and walked the waterfront, not for the romantics…only to just catch pokemon. my phone died and strangers, that were also there to catch pokemon, let me charge my phone in their car! sketchy??? nehhhh they seemed like good people. turns out, they were, and my phone was happily charged and i got to catch more pokemon! however, we did stop to take advantage of this gorgeous sunset because, duh.

***side note. there are sooooo many people playing pokemon! everywhere we look everyone is on their phones. go ahead and call it stupid but at least this game is getting people off their asses and moving. granted, they are looking at their phones but still, exercise is exercise. and it’s hella fun!!

sunday

cale & i had to make our final trip to 2426 {house we sold} to pick up the few misc items left behind. it was so weird to lock up, pull out of the driveway and know that we will never pull back in. and we will never make that commute to work or see our neighbors everyday. cale said he wasn’t getting emotional but i sure was.

this is where we began. where jaz & i started our lives as new seattleites. where cale & i became mr and mrs anderson. just so many memories in the 6 years that cale lived in it and the short 3 years that i did. this was such a great first home and one we will never forget. we will miss a lot of things about this house, the proximity to all things shopping, our wonderful neighbors that are now our good friends, the brand new deck{!!!!! that we hardly got to use!!!!!} and so much more. although bittersweet, we are so excited for this new chapter in our lives.
cheers to moving forward onto bigger and better things!

speaking of which, we went and peaked in on the new house to see how things were coming along and they are a-comin! the front door was painted!!! you may be thinking…. uhhh, k. whoop-d-doo the front door was painted but to me THIS IS EXCITING! it means we are one step closer to being completely done!
we go on our final walk through on August 12th and then close on the 18th!!

t-minus 24 days until move in!

it was obviously a busy weekend but such a gorgeous one! summer is officially here in seattle and it is awesome! high 70’s to low 80’s and we are loving it!

what did you do this weekend??

always,
-jess
