Well, on Friday we left for Chicago by way of Michigan to pick up the new official vehicle for Changin’ Time!
Me, my love♥, and the MIL had to leave Pittsburgh around 7 p.m., so for the most part we drove through storming darkness.
I mean, there are some per-requisities for a long-distance road trip.
And lots of farwell kisses…
This went on for some time while we got she♥ got our fur-babies set up at Amanada‘s
After much ado, we were off!
We all drove together on the way to Michigan/Chicago.
Anywhoo…I’m living the life of a fabulous grad student on the go, so I packed light.
It wasn’t long before we realized leaving so late in the evening, we needed some serious fuel for the road:
Since most of the trip that first day was at night, it was pretty hard to snap pictures (obvi!), but thankfully I have the smallest bladder in the world and we stopped at plenty a rest stop.
Finally we arrived at our first destination: Hillsdale, Michigan, promptly thanked our hosts and hit the sack!
