|Sunrise as we left Phoenix. Isn't it beautiful?!?|
We are trying to do about 500 miles at a time so it's really only 4 long days of driving. Add in 3 rest days with various friends and family in different cities and you get one exhausting week-long trek across the country. Blah.
It is awesome crochet time though! In the last week I have made 4 dish rags, 1 potholder/hot pad, and am working on a crocheted "rope" rug. Tutorials for everything coming soon. Need to get settled in my new apartment first!
Speaking of new apartment, I am so stinkin' excited! Walk-through is on Friday and I (hopefully) move in on Saturday. Brace yourselves for the floods of pictures coming next week :-). I've been DIYing a ton of stuff preparing for this move, so there'll be lots of new tutorials once I get settled. I've painted furniture, made DIY artwork, salvaged picture frames for printed artwork, and crocheted a few home goods. This is going to be one very DIYed apartment, which is both cheaper for this poor grad student and makes for great blog content :-).

I'll also be posting a nice detailed post sometime later this week or next on how I packed for this move and how it has been much less stressful than it could have been (except for the actual driving part; definitely nerve-wracking.) And for all you other dirt poor college students, I'll post a summary of all expenses so you can see if you too want to be as crazy as me to spend less money.
