We are moved and owners of a new home!!
Seriously there was so many times and days in the last 2-3 months that I never thought I would be able to say that but after many, many obstacles and a very stressful moving week we closed on our old home and then closed on our new home 5 days later this past Wednesday. The next few days were spent getting flooring installed while all of our belongings waited in the garage or a moving truck in the driveway. We finally are technically moved in as of Saturday surrounded by piles and tons of boxes, but slowly getting settled and hope to do some painting this week too.
And there is a baby that is very near to making her arrival too. I am probably the only crazy pregnant woman praying that I will go late and make it to 41-42 weeks.
We don’t have internet installed yet either – so I am writing this as I borrow WIFI for an hour sitting in Chick-fil-a eating lunch and setting up install appointments for internet and other things.
I REALLY hope to find some time in the evenings to sit down and take a break from all the unpacking and type out some posts because I have lots of after pictures and final before/afters of our old home and probably will intermingle those posts with a first look at our new home along with updates on things I am doing in our new home. I think I have decided that for the first year I am going to take a more laid back approach to the status of our house and do monthly updates of what the house looked like on moving day vs. what it looks like on month 1/2/3 versus waiting for the perfect Pinterest after picture until I share. With a new baby things may move slow after the initial big changes of flooring/painting/getting unpacked but I also hope that will be an encouragement to you that when it comes to making a house into a home it takes time.
Here’s just a snippet of some things in progress that we have been working on last week…
But right now there are piles of boxes calling my name and that ever growing list of things you need from Home Depot that I need to pick up.
Thank you so much for your patience over the last few months. Making huge life changes and expecting a baby at the same time has been more time consuming than I ever imagined and I so have missed blogging and sharing projects and even doing projects more than you ever know. Looking forward to life slowing down and getting into a new normal this summer.
