Here's a short list of things NOT to do on your next move.
Do NOT trust U-Haul's website recommendation on what size truck you need. A 14 ft truck will NOT hold an entire one bedroom condo and small storage space and wedding gifts as promised. Instead splurge for the 26 ft semi truck. Even though it claims to hold enough for a 4 bedroom home, it will be just enough. Apparently I squeeze a lot more stuff into my home than the average joe.
Do NOT get a 14 ft truck and then decide half way thru filling it there will not be enough space. If you do this, you will need to spend hours....in the rain.....trying to get the 26 ft semi mentioned above so you can then undo all the hard work already done to transfer first truck into second truck.
Do NOT get a storage space at the final resting place that is also too small. Take the hint that the small truck didn't work...neither will the small storage space.
Do NOT speed in a 26 ft UHaul. Cops will not take pity on you for driving such a monstrosity down I-70. They have no problem pulling you over for going 72 in a 65.
Do NOT pull over behind your husband when you see him get pulled over in a 26 ft UHaul....by the police. You will get the stink eye from the officer who will immediately call his buddies to come barrelling across the highway to instruct you to kindly move.
Do NOT forget how long 26 feet is when filling at a gas station. If you cut the corner too close you will be buying a nice man a new bumper and back tail light for his now scarred car.
And there you have it. My list of things NOT to do on your next move. Hopefully I saved you all a ton of time and heartache!

Make-a-Wish necklace. Don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE so you can win on of your very own!Bare Escentuals eye makeup. I was skeptical of loose powder eye makeup, but it's amazing. I am eye liner handicapped....can't put it on to save my life. But with their magical angled brush, ta-da, gorgeous eyes.
My family owns a wine distribution and the hubs brings home boxes like these. Need I say more. Mmmm....wine.
Vampire Diaries. I've finally been sucked into the Vamp phenomenon. I read the first Twilight book and didn't like it. Gasp. I saw the first Twilight movie and was unimpressed. Gasp. I've never seen True Blood. Double gasp. But put it on the CW and I'm hooked! The two brooding brothers aren't so bad on the eyes either.
Body Shop Radiance beads. Oh how I love thee. Just a quick sweep across the cheek and you have the fresh, young, dewy look all the ladies in hollywood are sporting. Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips. It's amazing and it leaves your lips feeling cool and tingly. I'm obsessed.
My maxi dress. I found I didn't wear it a ton during the summer, but I'm finding it's the perfect transitional piece into fall. It's long so the stems are covered. It's knit and totally warm. You can add a sweater if it's cool out. And it's navy, so it doesn't scream summer. Voila...perfect fall ensemble.

I worked in a nice office today, but the hours were 12-8. We took "lunch" at 4. It was soooo weird to start the second half of your day at 5pm. I wouldn't want to do it every day...but if we ever want to buy that beauty pictured above, I'll suck it up. At least I got to come home to a full DVR box. Yep. You read that correctly. After 30 some painful days, the EyeCanSee's are back in the 21st century. Oh how I love you beautiful silver box...please never leave me again! Can't wait for Gossip Girl tonight!!
PS Only 3 more peeps needed until my first official give away!! I had a bit of a set back when I lost some followers. WTF? Who wouldn't want to follow my awesome daily ramblings. In the infamous words of Michelle Tanner....how rude! They just don't know what they're missing!
