  • Hotel living at its finest 🙌
.
I’m thankful for the space provided at our hotel to cook (shout out to @residenceinn and the in-room kitchens they provide 👊).
.
We’ve had so many take-out and fast food meals recently that I’ve been craving homemade food.
.
I kept some of our last freezer meals before we moved out, and they’re coming in handy now...even if we have to eat them on the floor! (There is a table, but the floor is just easier and less messy for the kids. Keeping it casual and low key over here!)
.
🤔 Do you cook while traveling, eat out, or do a little of both?
  • Boxes, boxes, and more boxes 📦. We needed SO many boxes for this move! Ironically, we got our favorite boxes for free from my friends at @chickfiladelsur—they saved their 🍟 boxes for us!
.
This was the first time we’ve done a DITY move (do it yourself as opposed to having the military move us), and whew—it was exhausting!
.
Bright side: All of our stuff is already in our new home, and I’m pretty happy I have a month to recover (staying in San Diego until my oldest gets out of school) before I have to open all the boxes and unpack 😬.
.
🚚 What’s your least favorite part of the moving process: packing or unpacking?
  • 🏄‍♀️ I’m having some major Hawaii withdrawals today 🏝.⁣

✈ If you could jet off to any place in the world right this very second, where would you go?⁣

In case you’re wondering, 🌊 #haleiwa is 2,620 miles away from me right now, and it feels like I was there a lifetime ago.
  • 🧹Time to clean up the aftermath.
.
This home was SO good to us for the past three years 🏡. We grew as a family (literally), and enjoyed the neighborhood to its fullest.
.
But now it’s time to clean it up and let a new family make memories, while we set off on new adventures.
.
First up: hotel living for a little while! (AKA: free breakfast and someone who will pick up after us 🙌)
  • When mama needs to wash your sheets because the movers are coming, you have a slumber party with your sister!

👭I love that these girls have shared a room since pretty much the beginning.
.
They may fight sometimes, but they also play together and I know are each other’s best friend...at least for now ❤️
