Hi there my loves! Long time no talk, am I right? Last week, I failed miserably at getting a post up on time… so you haven’t heard from me since Wednesday. Life got in the way. (And by life I mean a giant debacle trying to order our new flooring. I’ll spare you the details. HAHA)
But I’m back today! However, not for long. I’m taking this week off from blogging because it’s a HUGE week. We move into our house next weekend! I’m a bundle of mixed emotions right now, tbh. I go from being so excited I can’t stand it, to crying my eyes out because I don’t want to leave our apartment. (I know. So weird. But I’m super sentimental and this is our home.)
So this week, we’ll be packing up and moving a few streets over to our new house. We still have so much that needs to be done before we move in, and we both have a ton going on in our work lives this week. So wish us luck! We’re going to need it!
But before I sign off for the week, I figured I’d share a little bit of our weekend with you. It wasn’t too exciting… but we had a good weekend!
We started our weekend on Friday when we got out of work. We picked up a pizza and headed over to the house to try to get some work done. I was exhaused (I chaperoned a summer camp field trip and spent the whole day swimming with 6-12 year olds) so I wasn’t much help. We stopped to relax a bit on our back patio and it was nice to sit back and just chill. I think that our backyard is going to be one of my favorite things about our new house. It’s so relaxing out there!
Saturday we were up early to go to our second home… The Home Depot. We bought all the paint we needed to make our house look brand new! We finished sanding and cleaning up the walls and painted our living room, entry way, and downstairs hallway. We are SO happy with how it looks!
Saturday night we went out to dinner to celebrate our anniversary a little bit late. We drank margaritas and cheers-ed to three years!
Today we spent the morning finishing up sanding the main floor and pulling staples out of the hardwoods. Seriously. The previous owners had carpet EVERYWHERE.
And now we’re snuggled in bed trying to make a list of things we can pack and take over to the house this week before we have to move everything else this weekend. Thank god my parents are coming down on Wednesday to stay a few days and help us out. I’m not sure we’d make it on our own… especially because my Jeep has to go back in the shop. (Yeah… that happened on Thursday too. Found out my car is going to cost a bunch of money to fix. Yay.) I can’t imagine trying to move an entire house with just Trev’s car!
Alright my loves. I hope you all have the best week! I’ll be back one week from tonight! I’ll have lots of pictures of the moving process, that I’m sure of.
I’ll miss you!
