Moving in

Welp, I survived. Even though last week I thought I might die from the stress I didn't. I was able to get everything packed away and ready to go. Saturday morning came and I was ready to move. We had so much help it was amazing. We were able to get moved in about 2 1/2 hours. We found out that our doorways are super narrow so that made life interesting. In order to get everything in the house and into the right room we had to take apart and put together a lot of furniture.

After we returned our moving truck we made a trip to IKEA so that we could get a new bookcase and entertainment center. Word of advice: when you are already exhausted from moving and have a lot of unpacking to do, don't go to IKEA you will become so tired you will just want to fall asleep. Even though I wanted to just lie down and fall asleep I knew I had to at least get my kitchen together. I'm really glad I made that decision. After seeing my kitchen all set up and looking cute it made me feel really excited about my new house.

Tomorrow it will be a week that we have lived here. We have all but two boxes unpacked but still stuff is scattered everywhere. Since we had to go back to work it's been hard to come home and work some more. I have tomorrow off, though, so I'm hoping to get our bedroom all pretty as well as the living room finished. I also hope to get a vacuum to my floor because it's disgusting. I'm really ready to be all moved in. It stresses me out when I think of all the piles of stuff all over my house. It makes it really not feel like a home. Also, I really want to get some pictures to my faithful followers and I refuse to do it until I have a clean house.

So there you go. That's how it all went. Keep your eyes peeled for my post of pictures; I'm sure it will be coming soon.

Yay for new house! And yay for an excuse to go to IKEA! But, yeah, I think about moving in a few months and I already feel tired. But! When it's done, you're in your house! Yay!

What city in Cali are you in again? I'm coming in March! For Grandma's b-day party. I don't know if you've heard about it, but I'm stoked! I love Cali trips.

As I was reading that you went to IKEA, I was thinking that I totally wouldn't have had the energy to go right after moving. Apparently you didn't either. : ) Oh and I love the new layout. Very cute.

How exciting! I can't wait to see your new entertainment center from IKEA we are getting ready to get a new one and we found a white one there that I absolutely loved. It has bookshelves on each end and lots of storage space. I can't wait to go get it. Was the set up of it difficult? MeKell
