Recently, I have been really pleased with the most helpful moving apps. One is called Lugg and they help with local furniture moves. And Taskrabbit can help you with all your handyman needs (in our case unpacking, organizing and collapsing boxes). I also have a fun movie for you and candlesticks that you should buy before they are gone!
Welcome to my favorite things with Annie and Cindy!
1. Lugg App
Ever wish you had a truck to pick up that great furniture buy at an outlet or secondhand/vintage store? Well, just down load this Lugg app. I used it to hire two movers to help my daughter and son-in-law take some of our furniture. So worth it!
The Taskrabbit app can get you help fast! I’ve used it to find people to install window treatments and light fixtures. And the last two days, Laura and Matt were a godsend helping us unpack and collapse boxes. That’s Laura unpacking my closet for me.
We still have tons of stuff to put away, but after all the help we got from these two, it’s not so daunting.
She and Matt gave us great advice too, on things like the best sports bars for soccer to a good vet for Chief. They even hooked up our Apple TV. It feels good knowing we can call this young local couple when we need help in the future.
Tomorrow, I’m having a “tasker” hang all our mirrors and hooks for baskets and hats.
3. What to Watch: The Lost City
I went to the fancy new movie theater here in Jacksonville, FL by myself (Howard wasn’t here yet). But I had a fantastic time, reclining, sipping a cup of white wine and eating popcorn. And the movie is just so darn funny to me. Plus, my ticket costed about half of what it would be in San Francisco.
4. Cool Wooden Candlesticks
I highlighted these wooden candlesticks on the blog after a visit to Pottery Barn, and my brilliant friend, Mercedes purchased them. I would buy them, but now I can just enjoy them at her house less than a mile away! She has battery operated candles on a timer in hers, too.
5. Grilling At Home For The First Time in Years
Having a grill (actually a summer kitchen) again in our backyard is huge for us. I LOVED our San Francisco views but we had no outdoor space. Usually we were at my sister’s in San Diego when I posted about backyard parties. So, for our first dinner cooked at home, we made this (smaller quantity for just the two of us)…
