The Big Move!

We made it safely to our new home in Minneapolis (or Robbinsdale). The trip itself was not all that bad. It took us about 12 hours total on the road but we stopped in a small town about 2.5 hours outside of Minneapolis. We could have kept going but I was losing steam. Alex drove the 16' truck and I followed behind in my car.

That is the Chicago skyline with Alex in front. This was probably the most stressful part of the drive.

Welcome to Minnesota! (Sorry the images are blurry. I was in the car aiming and shooting. I was trying to focus on driving.)

 Home Sweet Home!

Once we got to the house it was all about 
unloading the truck. Alex was proud of how much I was able to help him. He couldn't believe some of the stuff I carried in. I'm a lot stronger than I look . . . I just don't let people know.

I am finding out that I have an accent here. Little do the Minnesotans know they actually have the accent. I decided to title my blog "You Bet!" because that is their classic phrase here that I have noticed. According to Alex's "How to talk Minnesotan" the phrase "you bet" is a common response to "thank you". However, "you bet" is mainly used to answer questions. If you can't think of anything else, say "you bet."  

So here it is my blog. I'll try to add some more a bit later. I have some unpacking to do now.
