Stilettos and Diapers: Time to let you in on some news...

Time to let you in on some news...



In 2003, I moved from Florida to New York to be with the hubs. I graduated nursing school there. We got married. Moved into our first place together. We were there 3 years and 4 months before his job moved us to California

We loved it there. The weather and the things to do were beyond. We had our first baby, moved from an apartment to a house and realized that being so far from family was really hard. 3 years and 1 month later, they moved us to DC. 

We bought our first house. Our second baby was born. We made amazing friends. 3 years and 4 months later, it's time for more adventure in our lives. 

We are moving! 

We will be calling Charlotte, NC home next month! I'm so excited and sad to leave all at the same time. Billy's sister and her family are here and our neighborhood is honestly the most exciting one ever. There has been no lack of tears since we found out last week. It's bittersweet. I'm stressed about selling the house (and by that I mean keeping it clean to show). I'm nervous about the transition of the move affecting Cooper starting school in August and about finding a new house that I love as much as this one. 

At the same time, I have friends down there that I'm excited to live near. I can't wait to explore a new city, find a new favorite restaurant and meet new people. I'm thrilled to be moving closer to my family. We've always talked about Charlotte and this is a great opportunity for my husband that we could't pass up! 

I will be a mad woman over the next week getting our house ready to put on the market. Oh and getting ready to go on a cruise next week. It's not crazy around here or anything. Anyone want to come help with my mile long to-do list? I pay in wine and straw-ber-ritas.

  4. Oh Molly, how exciting!! I've been to NY, CA, & DC and absolutely loved them all but haven't {yet} visited NC so I'll be excited to hear all about it through you! All the very best of luck with the move; you will be fine! I wish I could take my own advice though; my family and I are moving from Australia to Thailand in 3 weeks time! Eeek!

  10. Congratulations! I love Charlotte.
    Any chance your house could get shown while you are on your cruise?? That would make it easy to keep clean between showings!

  20. An adventure!! You'll love NC (says the native Western North Carolinian!) I live just west of Asheville. Y'all definitely have to visit the mountains while you're there...most beautiful mountains on earth!! (I may be biased!) My best friend lives in Charlotte and loves it. It's a neat city!! Congrats and good luck with the house!! Ours is currently listed and keeping it show ready with 3 littles...ugh!!! I'll say a prayer for ya!

  26. Congrats Molly!!! Very happy for you. Good luck with home sales. Maybe NC holds baby #3! :) lol Also, do you have to get re-certified in every state as an RN?

  27. We just moved to NC from AZ about a year ago. We so so so love it here! :D Haven't really been to Charlotte, pretty sure we were tired of driving and passed it on by...
    This is an exciting time in your life!! :D Love it!!

  28. AHHHH OMGGGG! This is so stinking exciting! Well, from an outsider's perspective anyway - I'm sure packing a house in a month, with two kids, is probably not the most fun task - BUT, holy bananas, that sounds like theeee most amazing place to live! In actuality, I know nothing about NC or Charlotte, but I imagine it to be the perfect southern location - charm and class, very green, with beautiful brick houses. And sweet tea. Your life is so dang adventurous - I freaking love it! And how awesome that you'll be closer to your family! Win!

    Now I so wish I lived near you - even more - to help with that to-do list. I'm going bananas here without having a house of my own to keep up. I miss grocery shopping. Womp womp. ;-)

    Anyway, congrats and cannot even wait to read along your moving journey!!
