And lots of inbetween/backandforth stays at our old pad in Groton, Massachusetts -- my beloved 40 Wallace.


Any of ya'll live with me any of those places? Any of ya'll move as much?? (I might even beat cc?!)

    we move every three years and I THOUGHT THAT WAS A LOT. but since we have been married (almost 5 years) we have had three addresses.

    before marriage, my family and i would move about, every two years.

    if i don't move every 2-3 years, i get antsy, i have to have change.

  2. Ha! Actually, you and I may have crossed paths during your BU and then Allston/Brighton days! Weird! I went to BU (graduated in 2004). I lived on Quint Ave (which is off of Gardner) while you lived on Gardner. Small world :)
    And of course, we established before that we share GD roots...albeit mine are via marriage but we are up there at least once a week.
    I hate moving...I don't know how you managed to do it so much!

  3. I moved about 10 times between ages 18-25. But my arse done been planted since then.

    Can I take this little timeline to mean that you moved in w/CC after knowing him for only two months and at the ripe young age of early-20-something?


    I can only say I'm pleased he put a ring on it in time, but was it too late for your virtue? Perhaps, Perhaps.

    So says the person who waited a whole two dates to consummate my relationship w/Husband.*

    *Classic TMI.

  4. I challenge you to a duel:
    1. 1995 - H Freshman Dorm
    2. 1996 - Soph Dorm Room
    3. 1997 - Jr Dorm
    4. 1998 - Spain
    5. 1998 - Sr Dorm
    6. 1999 - Dallas Apt 1 - Gaston St
    7. 1999 - Dallas Apt 2 - Diff't apt on Gaston
    8. 2000 - Dallas Apt 1 - Back to original on Gaston (Ron Schaeffer and I were swapping)
    9. 2001-02 - Morningside St, Dallas
    10. 02 - LA - Laguna Beach digs
    11. 02-03 - LA - Redondo Beach place
    12. 03-04 - LA - Palms
    13. 04-06 Cambridge, 10 Ellery
    14. 06 - 09 SF Broadway
    15. 09 - 10 SF Sacramento
    16. 10 - Denver - Glasshouse
    17. 10 - 11 - Denver, Wash Park
    18. 11 - Denver, Bonnie Brae

    Mostly just curious what the count was. 18 times in 16 years not counting summer moves.

  5. Good luck on the move, Am! I just love your blog, i am fully obsessed with Harper she is so cute!! It's better than online shopping : ) and yes of course I can testify that you did in fact, have a real world house. Miles! Lexi! Kitty! Oh my! Oh and Newlyweds and 8 mile on blast obv : ) Hugs to you and the fam,

  6. I can only count up to 15 places, and that's when I got back to ninth grade and include my four dorm rooms in boarding school - seems not so legit.
    HOW do you do it? Moving makes me all antsy, though I do love to unpack in a new place...

  8. @jessica: moving a lot when you're younger is hard! i didn't move from age 7-18, so i had it easy for a long time :)

    @mamatully: we were there at the same time! nutty! i graduated 2004, too (did my sophomore year only at jmu)...where'd you live frosh year?? what was your major?? nutty connections, lady!

    @nav: you are quite astute, mama...i moved in waaay soon. eeps. and because you used 'consummated' you're a lady not a tramp. and you held out longer ;)

    @cc: we'll call it a draw, dude. harper will probably rebel and stay in one place foreva once she's outta our pad.

    @em: and we basically just walked around in our undies all the time?! lucky hearing from you -- i hope we can catch up for real sometime!

    @meredith: you've moved a lot!! what in the?? btw, have we discussed if we were in home ec together? i think we were...

    @cc2: why so many early moves?

  10. Yes! We are nomads too... more like gypsies at times. Moved countries, towns, cities and a ton of crappy/okeyish/amazing/wrong houses or apartments. We even lived in a hotel for a while. It's kind of crazy, but we love it!
