Ok...

So my husband says to me:
What are we waiting for?
(I always think about Jennifer Love Hewitt spinning around yelling that in "I Know What You Did Last Summer")

So anyway...Sean says What are we waiting on when it comes to moving? I rub chin and say...I don't know...
So then we decide...let's just do it.
So...the day after Julian gets out of school for the summer...Sean will drive a UHaul with all of our things while me & the kids drive behind him in our cherokee...and we will head to Indianapolis, IN.

I know some of you my dear bloggy friends...(channeling gabby) will think that I am insane, nuts, bananas for packing up and moving my family after having picked a destination by basically closing my eyes and pointing to a map of the US.
But...its something we have wanted for a long time...we just didn't know where to go.
We knew we didn't belong here...knew we didn't want to raise our kids here...but we just didn't know where to go.
I think we have found it.

We are going to be living w/my mother in law and father in law for the next four months...so that we can save money to make the move VERY comfortable.
Nervous about this for sure...
but its all a part of the journey.
Looking forward to being able to relax as far as constantly cleaning, and organizing..
its definitely going to be an experience.
Some of our family understands us and supports us...some have no clue why we would want to leave this place.
I want to have a HUGE celebration when we live.
Spades, BBQ, pina-coladas, balloons, confetti...make it a celebration.

jude and i played go-fish with these HUGE 5x7 playing cards...love them. I can't believe i haven't stolen them for a scrapbook page yet.
I must get these I them at Target and thought they were the CUTEST thing...Not to mention NEEDED...Julian is always dropping his cards!

just because she is beautiful...and i don't talk about her and the joy that she has brought to this crazy little family as often as i should.


Don't let me forget...
1. To take the incredible Amber Skolnick's class at Poppy Ink on the 22nd.
2. That Julian always swishes drinks in his mouth since his two front teeth are missing..
3. That Sandler is sooooooooo nice and sweet and gooey when he doesn't feel good.
4. That Cocoa Daisy makes me happy.
5. That I took way to long to watch Big Fish.
6. That Marley Jane is delicious. YES delicious.
7. That my husband is the sweetest and nicest.
8. That I took WAY too long to get hooked on the Office. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that damn show. For real. Office Space is one of my mostest favoritest movies. Next to Amelie, American Beauty, and Big Daddy. Sean bought me the first season w/some flowers the other night to get him out of trouble.
9. To watch Adam Sandler's new movie ...WOW.

make sure you remind me about ALL of these things...cuz i will forget.
