My beautiful sister, Tammy, threw me a baby shower before we left for Utah. It was great timing, because my mom was in town for a few weeks. I didn’t want anything that took too much planning (since she just threw me a bridal shower less than a year ago). We went to Cafe Rio, and used their party room. It was perfect! It was great to be able to say goodbye to my favorite friends and family.
Happy Baby Shower for Harold! Whenever I opened a gift, Emma got really excited and said, “Oh! Harold is going to LOVE that!” She’s going to be the most confused when we don’t actually name him Harold. 🙂
Jaida made the baby this gorgeous blanket! The pattern she used was from a blanket used in a show called “Once Upon a Time” that we both love.
Yep, that’s a baby in there.
I’ll miss you, Brein!!
Stephanie Krebs, Sharron, JJ
Mom, Jaida, Crystal, Tam
Brein, Shauna Tondevold (who was 8 months pregnant), and Amber (who just had twins!)
Trying to pick a name…here’s the short list.
I stole this t-shirt from Tammy when I was in middle school. She got it in 1991 (21 years ago!!), and I’ve been wearing it ever since. It’s turned out to be my favorite pregnancy t-shirt. Thanks, sister. 🙂
Thursday, June 14th was cleaning and packing the truck day! Dad Bay flew into town to help pack and drive the U-Haul with Tom. Since I was hugely pregnant, Tom let me fly to Utah instead of drive. We owe a big thanks to my mom, dad Bay, Tammy, and Glen for helping so much!
Scrubbing the garage! Thanks, dad.
Scrubbing the bathroom. Thanks, Tam!
Scrubbing the kitchen. Thanks, momma!!
It was hard work, so we let them have breaks once in awhile.
Great moving, guys! Thanks, little Glenny!
Packing up the last of it…
The chore chart is all complete! (It was awesome to know what we had done and what was still left to do in each room.)
My beautiful little home, all scrubbed and ready for the renters. I will never forget the adult experiences I had as I was buying this home as a single woman. It wasn’t easy, in fact it was one of the most stressful times of my life. But it was definitely worth it. I love this townhouse a lot. And I was so grateful that we had a nice place to live when Tom and I got married. Hopefully, it will bring joy for years to come. Maybe we’ll retire in Arizona and live here. 🙂 I will miss it.
Nothing better than a shoe-pillow. He was that tired.
Good thing mom taught us how to clean.
To celebrate being done, we ordered Venezia’s pizza. My favorite!!!
And then we did a little swimming to cool off. Thank goodness for pools in the summer.
We had our goodbye party at Tam’s on Thursday night. Tom and dad drove away on Friday morning with the U-haul.
Em is going to miss her favorite Uncle!!
All set to drive to Utah!
Goodbye to everything we own. I was so grateful that it all fit, and their drive went smoothly. There was just one scare when they almost ran out of gas. Oh, and when they thought the car had come off the ramp.
Tom took this beautiful shot from the road.
My mom and Grandpa Hancock drove my Civic to Utah for us a few weeks later. Thanks, mom!!
I hung out with mom, Glen, Tam and the kids on Friday and then flew to Utah on Saturday the 16th. Living in Arizona was one of the best experiences of my life. For six years, I taught and lived the single life in the sunshine state. I will never forget the ups and downs, the exciting times and the boring times. I love Arizona, and I always will.
The piano was welcomed with open arms into the Adams home!
I took Emma to her Fairy Dance class on Friday when we were all just hanging out.
Dad and Tom got to Utah safely on Friday night, and on Saturday morning they unpacked the U-haul before I flew into town. This is our storage unit in Herriman. Packed to the rafters.
Tom has a wonderful support system of men who gladly helped with the move. Dad, Jimmy, Jake, Jonny, and Jethro are the ones I know of that came to the rescue. Thanks, everyone! The move was a success. Sad, but successful. I’ll miss you, Arizona!
