I hate moving.
I know nobody really likes it (well maybe there is SOMEONE out there SOMEWHERE who likes it) but I am sure that I hate it more, haha.
We had, what felt like, a never ending closing. We sold the house in 3 weeks and our closing lasted more than twice that. And even though I didn’t pack everything until about a week or so out it felt horrible being in flux that long (especially since I am a creature of routine and order – I NEED it). So needless to say as soon as closing day hit I was ready for everything to go back to normal (a new normal, but still normal). I have spent the last 4 days in a frenzy of sorting, unpacking, hanging, and cleaning. It’s no where near perfect but at least I am not digging out of a box for every single thing. I swear, if I had to say “that’s packed” one more time to Emma should would have screamed. Also, it’s amazing how much happier the kids are now. They didn’t like being in flux anymore than I did but man was it playing havoc on their moods. So even though we hit a couple of really large bumps towards the end of this ordeal, everyone is very pleased with the new house! Here are a few pictures (haha, ‘few’ I can never do a few of anything) of new place. It’s a work in progress but I think it’s going to be quite awesome when it’s all said and done!
Emma thought it was hilarious to play in the boxes.

Moving is boring!
The new digs!
There is so much light in this house!

We went 4 years without a dresser because we used the dresser space in the old room for the office. So when we moved into this house we told ourselves that we would get one. Little did I know how damn expensive they are. So I ended up getting a cradenza or whatever those fancy dancy things are called and using it as a dresser. Super cute and less than half the price!
Not pictured: office (just imagine a bomb went off in a room with a couple of desks, a loveseat, and a couple computers and you’ve got the idea) and the kids and guest bathroom (it’s a room with a sink, tub, and toilet – nothing fancy)
