and we're here

We made it! Survived the trip, with two not-so-happy kitties. I don't blame them though; cargo in a plane isn't where I'd want to be locked up either.

Our flight went smoothly, and our absurd amount of luggage all got here so I really have no major complaints :) yet...

The temporary living apts we got are right on the water, so nice. Check out this view, hello PA.

See that UPMC building?? That's JR's office, 20-something floor. Very cool and downtown-ish and I love that I can walk to the pool and "see" my husband. That's my style!

First day on the job as a housewife {excitement abounds}, which needs its own post entirely, but I did get my pregnant self out of bed at a decent hour and have been very productive getting us organized in the land of PA. I vowed to not let the kitties on the bed anymore post-move but they are not breaking this habit very well. Much, much to my dismay.

Temporary living is bizarre because you come basically with your clothes, pets, and self. Everything else stays until our permanent move which will be within the next two months.

Surprisingly, it's cozy here and drizzly today and I am so happy to be with JR and our tiny family which does not void out though, how desperately we miss everyone at home. I was so fortunate being able to see my dad everyday at work, and having homemade lunch from mom daily, and being only a state away from siblings and parents and friends, oh my. We come to you live now from this spot, here 1,300 miles away...

In my many phone calls today and run downs to the leasing office, I have found everyone in the city so very nice, pleasant, and accomodating. I was fearful of leaving the comfort of the Sweet South, but so far I have been super pleased with the friendliness awaiting us here up North. I leave you now, because my fridge is looking like this, and it does not look good on my housewife itinerary to have such a fridge. You can envision me in a cute apron too, not in JR's flannel pants and my sweatshirt from yesterday that have been my attire for the day. Happy Monday and hugs from PA!! Whoa.

Congrats on getting there safely! The view is very nice from your window! I'm sure you will be a great little housewife and will be spreading southern charm to everyone you meet! =)
I get to see my Dad everyday at work too. But now I'm looking for a more grown-up job! I will miss seeing him everyday! Dads are just the best! And they make the GREATEST Bosses!! haha

Glad you made it there safely! I think your fridge looks like it has all the essentials... was that chocolate syrup in the door? Definitely a necessity for a pregnant gal!
