Wow, what a great final weekend here in Arlington. Catching up with the UVA crew, Drinks and bar games with Kevin’s work family, dinner with a dear co-worker of mine, watching other people pack my things (worth every penny), seeing Kevin’s dad over a beautiful day in Clarendon. And of course how could I not mention my farewell tour of Gold’s classes. 5 classes, 5 formats (PUMP, FLOW, ATTACK, CXWORX and JAM), all new choreography and packed classes of cherished regular members. It was such a rewarding end to our time here.
Here are ten things I learned this weekend:
1) Hiring a reputable moving company to pack your things with care and a smile is worth its weight in gold. I highly recommend Von Miller if you are in the DC/VA/MD area. .”
2) Apparently, yoga mats = “small carpets” in mover-speak.
3) It’s good to know your neighbors, especially when you need to borrow a wine opener because yours was already packed. (thanks Julie!). And thanks to Rabbit Grill for the free solo cups.
4) if you ever want to feel like you are loved, tell people you are moving! I am so overwhelmed by how many people have made an effort to spend quality time with us and try to convince us not to leave.
5) BODYJAM 60 is H-O-T! Especially when the studio feels like 90 degrees.
6) Group fitness peeps in this area work out SO much harder than in Dallas. I have my work cut out for me to whip those folks into fighting shape (not just looking pretty and skinny).
7) You’re a raging Lululemon-aholic when you have to go by the store the day before you move to say goodbye and thank them for making my experience here so rich (and me poor).
8) Moving tip: having a TV hooked up to watch Real Housewives is more important than having soap to shower with, if you are my husband supervising the packing. (yes, the movers even packed an already used bar of soap).
9) it was a great idea clearing out the fridge to provide food for the movers, but the amazing chocolate croissants may have been a little high brow and went untouched… We didn’t complain and ate them all, on the other hand.
10) 5 classes in 36 hours makes for one tired Danielle!
So to the next step… The road trip! Any tips for the long drive? 1400 miles and hopefully a little time to hang out in Nashville at the halfway point. Anyone know of must-see things in Nashville or a great place to stay?
Dallas here we come!
