Moving

As many of you know-- we are moving. But I thought that many of you don't know where we've decided to move. So I thought we would play a fun little game to see if you can guess. And some of you already know... and that's okay too. You're free to guess-- or throw people off :)

(most of my facts are from wikipedia)

It has bright sunshine 60.3% of the year.

Whole Foods was started and it's headquarters are there.

Population of 790,652. Making it the 35th largest city in the US. So nope-- we're not moving back to LA.

Live music capital of the world (this just gave it away for some people)... and no- we're not moving there because Dave's band made it big :)

Has more than 50 public swimming pools! (and yes, this means that it's HOT there)

1600 miles from where we live right now. Yowee... we are in for a long drive.

I NEVER thought I would end up in this state. But have been happily surprised by how awesome it sounds. (I haven't ever been there).


We aren't moving for a few months, but I know the time will fly by. We are very excited. The only downer is that we aren't going to be living by my sister like we thought (since she's movie to Portland). We are moving because Dave's company is merging with another company-- and that company is where we are moving. :) Any guesses???

Thanks to a little help from google, I am going to guess Austin Texas. And if I'm right, then yes you are in for a very long drive! But right now as I look out my window I am very jealous that you won't be in the snow.

oh man! i am so excited for you guys!! but so sad that you're leaving! i'm sure going to miss you a lot! we'll def have to plan a few trips to visit you!

no one has guessed anywhere.... and i can't think of anywhere clever without totally giving it away!!! so i won't guess and will let YOU reveal it to everyone :) i gotta say, tho, it would have been my LAST guess if you hadn't told me! never would've thot you were going there!!! BUT it sounds totally fun! happy for the kellers and this new adventure!
XO

we're not moving for the band!? wait... where'd you get your information?

Paul said...

I hope that I see again in this life, because I am starting to get the feeling that it might not work out as planned.

Paul said...

that came out wrong, i'm not blind or anything; I meant to say i hope to see YOU all again in this life. because, really, you guys are high tailing it out of here.

Amber said...

paul--i'm relieved that you can still see in this life. you had me worried :) and yes-- i just told Les that we need to hang out!!! remind her.

and oops... dave. i just didn't want to spill the beans about your recording contract :)

Now you are completely throwing me off. I thought I was already in the know with the Portland thing - so I guess you had a change of plans! Will you move even if your house hasn't sold yet? I would move in a heartbeat to a place with that much sunshine.

valerie said...

Say what?! Okay so I had heard rumors of you leaving but its for reals eh?! But wait.....all of our trips to the park together just wont be the same (ok so our what 2 or 3 trips in the past 2 or 3 years......) hahaha We were royal dorks when it came to actually seeing one another in person, so thank goodness you LOVE to blog blog blog, or my life just wouldnt be the same without sweet Amber to make me smile! I'm excited for you guys! If it is Texas....yoiks thats far and yes you shall enjoy the heat! :)

Natalie said...

I'm in denial :-(

Lindsey said...

I don't think my comment ever went through a few days ago. I thought I was in the know with the whole Portland thing, but now you have completely thrown me off guard! I'm so jealous of that sunshine you are moving to.

Mom said...

Wonder if I can get some good deals on tickets??? Sounds like a L O N G ride with 3 kids.

Julie said...

Just so EVERYONE knows, Am & Dave are only moving to Austin temporarily. She is still under a firm commitment to come live by ME eventually (sooner rather than later would be preferable!). I'm waiting......
