My Husband is Officially A California Resident!!

Just really quickly, we made it to Roseville safe and sound. The drive was extra long because we towed our car behind the moving truck so Devin was very cautious. My mom so kindly told me a story of an accident she saw involving a truck towing a car and that got us a smidge worried. Anyway, we are here with all of our stuff in my parents garage sleeping in my little sisters room. Thankfully not on twin beds anymore since we were able to bring all of our beds with us. We put one up there and moved hers out. Devin started work today, Tuesday, because yesterday we had to take a trip to San Ramone, the bay area, to pick up some furniture my aunt and uncle gave us before they move at the end of this week to Atlanta. We have been blessed to have been given several great pieces of furniture and hopefully all we will have to buy is a table for our tiny apt. kitchen and a couch of some sort. We are glad to have IKEA close and lots of discout furniture stores around. We will see what we can fit in our apartment. I hope to find us a place soon and will begin my search today. If any one knows of any great complexes in Roseville or Rocklin, let us know. We are so excited to be here, but we keep talking about how weird it feels to actually live here because for 3 years Roseville has been were I go on vacation, and all Devin has known of Roseville is vacation. So I am excited to get settled and start feeling like we actually live here!! Love you all. Thanks to all of the Christensen side who helped us move and to my family who helped us fill up the garage. XOXO!!!

Yess! I'm so glad you made it safe; I've been wondering about you two. How fun that you are Cali residents. Good luck finding a home and furniture for it. It's such a fun (and sometimes annoying) project making a place feel like home. Love you guys! Can't wait to hear more about it!

Ashley, I wanted to introduce myself because WHO KNOWS when I will actually get to meet you! I am Devin's cousin, on the his big C side. My family is the loser-bunch & rarely makes it to reunions etc..but we are still big proud members of the huge family! haha. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi & tell you I hope I get to meet you one day! Plus, I don't want you to think some crazy chic is commenting on your page.. lol.
Yay for Cali! We're in LA. Did you feel the earthquake?

Some friends of mine moved to Rockin a few years ago... THE CANNINGS. You will love them.. Bob & Carolyn, they have a little boy named Caleb. I will shoot them an email to look out for you. Carolyn is awsome, very fun, energetic, creative, a blast to have around. I miss her. Bob is funny and down to earth. I hope you can meet them.

We are glad that you made the long trip safely, good luck finding a place soon!
