Well, not that I’ve ever commented on your blog before (I don’t think) I’m going to guess you’re out here near LA. I’m solely basing this on the fact that your daughter is wearing a sundress. Not that it was that warm yesterday and sunny yesterday, but it kind of was on Friday and Saturday if the picture is from then.
Ok…so I went to whole foods website so they have like 200 stores. So now divide that in 1/2 for ones that you could be dressed like you are. THAT STILL DOES NOT HELP! MORE CLUES OR JUST TELL US! Pretty pretty please with sugar on top. Hey it gets my two year old what she wants.
It’s WARM there. I am SO jealous. Insanely so. I don’t have any guesses but CAN NOT wait for you to disclose, because we have been researching warmer climates to move to this spring and so far have come up empty.
I have a vague guess now - the time difference from where I am and where Chris is (presuming that the blog times are correct for her timezone) would suggest east coast to me. Possibly not the USA though the baseball would seem to indicate USA so I am sticking with east coast.
Has to be one of these places: Atlanta Boston Chicago Dallas Denver Houston Las Vegas Los Angeles
New York Philadelphia San Diego San Francisco
Seattle Washington - because that’s where Whole Foods are (is??)…..also has to be someplace warm (note sleeveless dress on adorable child and bright sunlight) - so, that means most likely NOT Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York, Philadelphia or Seattle…….leaves Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, LA, San Diego…..am I close?????!!!!!
Okay, the last picture is in an IKEA, right??!!! Here’s where all the IKEAs are…..
CA, Costa Mesa
CA, East Palo Alto
CA, San Diego
CA, West Sacramento
CT, New Haven
MD, College Park
MN, Twin Cities
NY, Long Island
OH, West Chester
PA, South Philadelphia
TX, Round Rock
WA, SeattleIKEA Direct
So, no Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Seattle, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan, Massachussets (did I spell that one correctly??),or Illinois cities - too cold for clothes in pictures right now….and so far, only Atlanta, Dallas/Houston, LA, San Diago also have Whole Foods…..need another picture…..
I have it narrowed down to Arizona, California, Texas or Florida… they are the only states that have both Whole Foods and Ikea and are warm enough to allow for such a cute dress on your daughter… clearly, I have too much time on my hands… I’ll be getting back to work now…
So, based on Whole Foods + Ikea (I can’t believe I googled IKEA Locations, I’m too competitive) along with the lack of leaves or buds in the trees + the baseball already starting, I’m thinking Dallas, TX. I was going to throw in Alanta, GA as the other option, but I don’t think GA is as big of a baseball state as TX is. And since I grew up in a suburb of Dallas, I’m pulling for Dallas as well. (I’m guessing Houston/Austin have a bit more green already, but I could be wrong.)
Where ever you are, I hope you enjoy the warmth and sun, and the transition goes smothly. And I just saw online NE is hit with another snow storm so looks like you got out just in time!
towns that have both ikea and whole foods:
Palo Alto CA**
San Diego CA**
New York NY
The ones with ** are more likly for the way your daughter was dressed.
Along with trying to guess were you moved I found out I have no life! LOL Come on….next clue!
Okay- Well, based on the Whole Foods bag, you are not in Alabama, Georgia, North/South Carolina, or Tenessee.
Based on the lack of leaves on the the trees- you are not in the Bay Area, in fact due to the time zone you are not on the West Coast. If you are not on PST ( pacific Standard Time) does that make you in the same time zone as Colorado?
RockyMountainTime I think. But not as far north as Colorado, since there should be snow on the ground still in February, I think.
Well you’ve moved near an Ikea and near a Whole Foods. Also, your baby girl is not in a jacket, or sweater and anything to keep her warm other than sunshine so you’re not near me on Long Island. You obvoiusly went West of the Mississippi. Maybe my home state - California? Oh how I would envy you if you did.
This is driving me nuts.
I don’t play these games very well.
However, I just had an A-HA moment. A few weeks ago you mentioned that baseball season was starting and I remember being confused. Because you live(lived) in a cold,snowy place and it seemed a little early for running around bases.
But obviously you’ve moved someplace warm and that whole baseball thing makes sense now.
I wonder what other hints I missed.
have you come to GA (definitely looks like somewhere in teh SE)…it was not quite sleeveless weather this weekend, but you guys with thick Northern blood probably thought it was…I am dying to know where you are…I hate that you had to leave your beautiful home…can’t wait to see where you land and what you have in store to share with us…
I’m loving all these pictures even though I can’t even begin to guess where this is. Although, seeing the clothes everyone is wearing, I can DEFINITELY rule out Canada (as I go get another sweater to put on, brr).
You all (or should I say ya’ll?) are in a much warmer climate i.e. shorts, sleeveless, sunshine, baseball already started and clue eleven looks very southern..no weathered wood in Southern California with Gulf gasoline signs. The Carolinas or Florida are my guess, you could have done reconnaisance (sp?)work while on latest sport/disney trip.
I see IKEA, WHOLEFOODS and warm weather so I’m thinking CA. But then, Gulf, Texaco, and Big meat eaters? Southern states, Texas? Wait, those fences (the swing picture)are very typical in residential yards in CA
The house I can make out next to the swingset picture looks like a style in CA, FL or AZ. However, the structure in the latest photo is made of wood…and buildings in FL are concrete (at least on the first level)
I have question, if you are all flying to where you are moving - assuming this because there is one picture showing your husband and I am assuming (again) you are taking the picture, then did you sell your vehicles? or is it so far away that you shipped them with your household stuff? As oppossed to driving there? And from the pictures of the boys playing ball, the trees, grass, dirt and such look like the panhandle/north Florida or Texas - the coastal area or central Texas, but not the hill country, more around Houston to San Antonia off I-10. Okay, those are my guesses: North Florida to Texas along the I-10 corridor (which I guess could include Alabama, Mississippi or Louisianna). Wherever it is, I wish you happiness and blessings. I will miss the pictures of the New England seasons.
I don’t know. You were going to see a friend in Florida, weren’t you? Are you moving to Florida? We started baseball here, we have a Whole Foods here and we have an Ikea here. And the weather is nice enough to go on a swing. Is it Florida? But them again, maybe it’s someplace where beef is a big part of the economy, in which case I would say Texas, someplace hip and cool like Austin.
I’m not sure if this is the right place to comment, there are so many pictures, but I think you are in California. Probably not the coast–it’s a little too warm on that thermomter and the old gas station signs, etc, don’t look coastal.
First of all, she is so stinking adorable. So is your little Miles..heck, ALL of your children are beautiful! I love reading your blog, and have tried a few of your recipes on workitmom. I am going to guess that you have moved to………….. Texas? Possibly Houston? Just a guess
Okay, I have Waaaayyyyy too much time on my hands! But here is what I think: Maryland. You had to fly to get there, the weather is relatively warm but not tropical (no leaves on trees) and there is an Ikea and Whole Foods there.
I am determined to get this right. Based on the weather, the Ikea, and Whole Foods, I think it might be Florida. I’m going to go out on a whim and say Orlando. I’m in Atlanta right now, and it was sweater weather today…plus, with the Home Depot and Coca-Cola sign, it HAS to be the South, but I could be wrong.
