We've Moved into the Ross University Residence Halls!!

While Cory was visiting Wisconsin during the break, I had the lovely task of moving us out of our old apartment, and into the Campus Living Residences at Ross University. It was a lot of work, and it was sad to go! For our last night together, Brooke and I had an awesome ravioli dinner with pina coladas!

I took a few pictures of our favorite dogs that hang out in our complex as they kept me company while I loaded up the car.

John dog...because of him, our cars haven't been broken into in forever! It's that mean bark of his, but he's really a softy on the inside

And Einstein...I love his ears!! We are going to miss these guys so much! Too bad Ginger and Picses weren't there as well.

But don't take my word for it...hear in her own words what she thought of the move



And here are some before and after pictures of the new place:

Julia - thanks for sharing these pics - the apartment looks cozy! But most of all thank you for doing the majority of the work moving. I will admit I got a little teary eyed thinking about how much fun the old apartment was and the dogs left behind but then I realized we can still see them when we come next time.

Cool apartment Julia --- thank you for doing double duty to get moved in. Cory owes you one ( or is it 100? )

It looks like home already... enjoy!

Hi! My name is Catherine and my husband and I are hopefully moving to St. Kitts once we've found out if he has been accepted to Ross University. In the mean time, I've been online searching for pet-friendly apts. in the area. Luckily, I stumbled across your blog. Your apt looks amazing! Can you tell me where it's located or what company manages it???
