Out and IN: Moving Success

Friday afternoon brought a surprise announcement from D – he commented here with his own moving tip. My response, via chat – “um, what?!”


His coworker mentioned a local moving company – inexpensive, quick, local and…done! Best money we spent all weekend, no doubt.

By Sunday morning, all the boxes were packed and we were ready to help out (being charged by the hour? Yes, we still did our fair share of box-lifting). Those movers were amazing – we spent the morning (i.e. ~3 hours) cleaning, and lifting the “Fragile” boxes, clothes & little things – they took ~1.5 hours to get all the furniture + heavy boxes loaded, and unloaded. Yes, amazing. That gave us the rest of the afternoon for this:

Out of the old, into the new…

Unpacking + decorating = not yet completed. Finished photos to come…

While it was great to have a rain-free morning, our let’s-get-unpacked! attitude was teased by a sunny, beautiful Spring afternoon. By 5 o’clock, it was time to shower and get out – the best part? We walked the few blocks to one of our favorite Denver spots.

 This meal has never tasted so good:

Satisfied! With just enough room for some ‘hood-style dessert:

His: Cinnamon + Bananas Foster
Hers: Cherry chocolate chip + Chocolate

Top that off with 10 hours of sleep and an extra weekend day to play, and you have one very successful move.

  10. Paying movers is the best expense ever…when I moved to NYC, three guys moved ALL my stuff into my fifth floor walk-up apartment in just over an hour. It would have taken my dad and me alllllllll day. Best money ever spent. The new place looks super cute! Hope you settle in quickly. :

  11. I’m a Colorado girl too!! I love Vine Street, but Souther Sun and Mountain Sun are much closer to me so I usually go to those locations.

  12. um…i think we live super close to each other!! Hahahah BTW This is the girl you tweeted about NM restaurants to! Just got to Denver! Hello!
