Well the BF has officially moved. Back in April he decided to attend the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Business MBA program, which required an obvious move and a lot of preperation. Both of us were excited for him to begin something so big and life changing and the actual move came up on us so quick. The weekend before we decided to throw a huge party with everyone of our closest friends so the BF could see everyone one last time. The party was a blast and it felt so incredible to have so many friends there with us to support him.
Even though the weeks leading up to the party were fun we were also trying to move me into my new apartment and get the BF all packed up, needless to say with work, school, packing, emotions, etc it was exhausting! The only perk was that I think I was too dang busy to actually realize what was happening which was a good thing at the time since I didn't become a complete hot mess HA. That Tuesday after my workday we finished packing up the Uhaul and headed out for MN.
We planned on doing the whole drive at once but we actually stopped right at the Wisconsin border for a quick nap (only slept 3 hours) at about 2 am. The whole trip took us about 16 hours and in all honesty it was miserable. The only perk was being stuck in the car with the BF, but we both decided that when I make the move we will be paying to have my stuff shipped for me!
Once we arrived it was all about quality time and soaking up as much of eachother as we could. Most days we spent at the pool and nights were about exploring the city. To be honest it was one of the best weekends we have had which was perfect, until I started to realize it was coming to an end. Saturday night I was a total wreck, since everything was perfect I hated that I would have to leave and it would be another month before we could have that time again. And lets just say the amount of crying in the security line of the airport for my one way flight back was a little embarrasing.
Thankfully the BF is the most amazing man in the world and knew that leaving would be so much of a struggle. I arrived home to the most beautiful roses and such a heartfelt card. It really did make me realize why I loved him so much and that he will be the person to make a long distance relationship worth every minute apart.
So where is life now.... thankfully I am only a few bottles of wine and one emotional breakdown in lol! It has been one full week and I finally feel like I am settling into my new normal routine. Technology is a god send and between texts, phone calls, and facetime I feel like I haven't missed a moment of his new life in MN. My girls have also been more amazing then I could have ever imagined. The frist few days my phone was flooded with advice, funny stories, encouragment, and care from those who are closest to me, and even a few girls I am just starting to really adore. I knew my friends would be there but having this much support has made me realize how truly lucky I am! Only 4 more weeks to go until I get to visit again and until then I know my girls will make everyday special.
I am trying to concentrate right now on finishing school (only 2 weeks to graduation) and getting my eating and workout routines back on schedule. The few weeks of moving and parties left me not feeling so hot about myself so I am finally back on track and ready to get moving again. This started as a place for me to keep myself accountable and share my food and workout routines so I plan on keeping that up from now on!
