Now that was a lot of good work! And a lot of good food.

To paraphrase the old saying, “A friend in FEED is a friend indeed!”

3 Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine June 26, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Way to go!! Glad you have such good friends to help you :) That beer looks like the perfect reward!


4 Tish June 26, 2010 at 4:04 pm

CONGRATS! We’ve survived 18 moves. I’m staying put here for a looong time.


5 Allie (Live Laugh Eat) June 26, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Wow that is amazing. I can’t believe you managed to fit your house in that little pea pod :) Way to go team KERF. I hope you can relax now?


6 lynn (The Actors Diet) June 26, 2010 at 4:06 pm

you DO have great friends! i think we are now past the point of friends helping us any longer with moves, unfortunately (they’ve already done too much over the years)


7 ari June 26, 2010 at 4:07 pm



8 Ida June 26, 2010 at 4:09 pm

Moving is such a pain, but it’s always fun to get everyone together and fun little picnic breaks! How sweet of Karen to bring over such a nice spread! :)


10 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) June 26, 2010 at 4:17 pm

I am so happy for you guys! You have great friends, great family, you are starting a new adventure in life and you got your house packed up in the POD! I hope you get some time to relax tonight!


11 Laura June 26, 2010 at 4:19 pm

You definitely deserve that glorious looking lunch spread!!! xx

15 Meg @ Be Fit Be Full June 26, 2010 at 5:02 pm

So impressed that you fit everything in! It is a big relief I’m sure. Our pod also arrived today but we have three days to gradually pack it. After seeing you fit all of your things I am now much more confident our apartment items will fit. Thanks for including the last pic! It was helpful!


16 emily June 26, 2010 at 5:05 pm

Yay! I’m sure you feel relieved πŸ˜€ We move in a month (on my birthday actually!) and it has MY stomach in knots.


17 Freya @ Brit Chick Runs June 26, 2010 at 5:10 pm

Waaay well done on getting it all finished! It actully looks like a pretty fun day :)


18 Dorry June 26, 2010 at 5:18 pm

Yay!!!! Congrats! Moving is a lot of hard work and y’all have the difficult part behind you. Hope you are enjoying this Saturday evening. :)


19 Evelyn @ cheers2healthy June 26, 2010 at 5:26 pm

Yaaay congrats!!!


20 Sandy June 26, 2010 at 5:29 pm

Looks like a great group of friends and a fun day for all of you. I’m sure that it is sad to leave your first house, but moving to Charlottesville and a new adventure is a dream come true. I hope you will be open for business the next time we are there to visit.


21 Danielle (Runs on Green) June 26, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Congrats πŸ˜€ I can’t believe everything fit in there!


22 Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 26, 2010 at 5:38 pm

YAYYYY!!! I love the little picnic you had in the living room. You’ve been blessed with such amazing friends!


23 jamie June 26, 2010 at 6:15 pm

congrats on getting everything packed up so quickly!

just wanted to stop by again and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the pass to Y2, I went and loved it and will definitely continue to take classes there :)


24 Kath June 27, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Oh you’re so welcome!


25 Kerri June 26, 2010 at 6:16 pm

SO it all fit in that little pod?


26 Stacey@http://stacey-healthylife.blogspot.com/ June 26, 2010 at 6:34 pm

I love the picture collage. Yeah you got it all packed, looks like you had a lot of help.


27 Courtney June 26, 2010 at 6:50 pm

Congrats on making everything fit! Aaand I just want to say to whoever your friend is in the Clemson shirt – Go Tigers!


28 Cynthia (It All Changes) June 26, 2010 at 7:03 pm

Yeah it fit! Looks like you had a great day and lots of help.


29 Emily J June 26, 2010 at 7:04 pm

How did all of that fit?! You all are amazing puzzle people. You did it!


30 katy June 26, 2010 at 7:10 pm

totally unrelated question – but i remember awhile ago you mentioned that you listen to podcasts on your commute and found them really interesting…would you mind letting me know what some of the podcasts were? i just started a longer commute and am looking for something somewhat productive to listen to on my commutes.


31 Kath June 27, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Oh man, I can’t really remember!

33 Lisa M June 26, 2010 at 7:16 pm

Happy to see you got your stuff in the POD. Kudos to Dad wearing a San Diego Street Scene T-shirt!!!


34 Ashley June 26, 2010 at 7:18 pm

LOVE it!! Congrats!! :) I don’t know how you fit a whole house into 1 pod…IMpressive!


35 Suzanne June 26, 2010 at 7:22 pm

Way to go! Congrats to you and Matt on the upcoming move. Props to your friends and family for being so great.

My husband and I just got back from a 12-day vacation in Spain, and I just finally sat down and caught up on the 12 days of your blog entries that I missed. Whew!

I was excited when I read about the Good Bite Cookbook and saw that Wiley is publishing it. I work for Wiley and I design the cookbooks (along with my boss)! So there’s a good chance that I will be designing it. :) How exciting!

Congrats again on your move! I admire your ability to handle all the stress. I need to take some pointers from you. πŸ˜‰


36 Kath June 27, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Oh fun! I hope you do!


37 Alison June 26, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Yay, I’m glad you managed to fit everything in your POD. Congrats!
I’m glad you have so many friends and family members to pitch in. Good luck on the next leg of your moving journey!


38 Daniel June 26, 2010 at 7:29 pm

Nice job! I’m very happy for you guys and I can’t wait to see everything in the new home when you’re all settled in; I hope it’s an easy road from here on out for you!


39 Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance....after a 100+ Pound Weight Loss!!! June 26, 2010 at 7:29 pm

Great Job! Love those PODS! Haven’t used one yet but will when we move our big move to Clearwater in the next few years. We just moved down the street earlier in the month, which was a tiring 4 day move but always worth it in the end. Hope moving IN goes as well for you. =)


40 Juli @ Bless My Heart June 26, 2010 at 7:34 pm

What a blessing to have that much help! Last time I moved it was just me and the husband packing all. night. long. Yuck.

Good luck on your new adventure!


41 Jessica @ The Process of Healing June 26, 2010 at 7:42 pm

Yay!!! And what a spread!


42 Meagan June 26, 2010 at 7:46 pm

Congratulations Kath!


43 Lisa June 26, 2010 at 7:47 pm

Glad that the packing is going better than planned. Can’t wait to see your adventure continue as you move to your new city.


44 claire June 26, 2010 at 8:09 pm

Congrats lady! We packed up and moved today too! Just not as far as you two!


45 Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! June 26, 2010 at 9:08 pm

Phew! You must be so relieved!


46 Hannah June 26, 2010 at 9:11 pm

It’s like the modern-day version of a community barn-raisin’! See, no need to stress when you have such lovely people in your life πŸ˜€


47 Julie @Pickley Pear June 26, 2010 at 9:24 pm

A lot of hard work deserves a great lunch and beer!


48 Wei-Wei June 26, 2010 at 9:38 pm

Aww, that’s amazing! You seriously have SUCH amazing friends and family. Congratulations for finishing… get ready for your new life!! πŸ˜€



49 Michelle June 26, 2010 at 9:44 pm

Wahoo!!! Congrats!!! I should take tips from you about packing and moving. I hate moving and I never get everything properly packed (therefore, it’s havoc every time), but with DH pursuing a career in the Navy, I’m going to have to get used to it!

That lunch spread looks good! I love Sun Chips.


50 Callie June 26, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Congrats! Moving is always crazy. :)
Can’t wait to see your new home.


51 Kelsey @ CleanTeenKelsey June 26, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Great job!! How wonderful that all your friends/family helped you. Looks like you guys had fun (lol). Yummy Great Harvest bread. :)

Also, I was going to ask, what Wordpress theme are you using? It says “Thesis” at the bottom, but that’s the designer of your blog, not the theme right? I’m not a huge fan of mine right now and I want something cleaner.


52 Kath June 27, 2010 at 2:23 pm

It is Thesis theme, but I would encourage you to look for something else just so we don’t have the same site!


53 Sarah June 27, 2010 at 12:36 am

WOW! Congrats on your move – what a day!


54 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin June 27, 2010 at 6:57 am

Oh wow, that looks like a long day! Congrats on getting it all done!!


55 Marissa June 27, 2010 at 7:25 am

Great job! That looks like a great lunch spread; honestly, I’d rather have that than any 5-star restaurant. :] Ah, do I spy a Clemson shirt?! YEAH!!


56 Sarah June 27, 2010 at 7:59 am

Hooray! I’m glad you were able to fit everything in one pod! What a relief!


57 andrea June 27, 2010 at 9:23 am

Looks like you have some great friends and family! :) Usually it’s like pulling teeth to get someone to help you move!

Also i noticed it’s always sunny when you take pictures! Here on the mainland in B.C right now we are lucky if we get a day!
