We’re Moving!!!

Yes!!! We are moving … TOMORROW!!!

We found out last week that we could possibly rent a different house and it worked out that we are able to move into it soon. Like suuuuuper soon. 🙂

We love our current house. Love, love, love. There’s tile and hardwood on the floors, a tile backsplash in the kitchen, a massively large bathtubs (with the same gorgeous tile surrounding it) and beeeee-au-ti-ful cabinetry in the kitchen and bathroom. There is a LOT about this house that I am going to miss.

However, the new house has something that this house does not…3 bedrooms.

Plus, there’s sooo much more storage space!

With a little boy on the way, we are going to need both the room and the storage space!

I started packing on Monday and have been packing, cleaning, and organizing all week. It has really been a lot of fun, although I did overdo it a little on Monday and had slightly swollen feet to prove it. 😛

 

Because of all the packing, things are looking kinda sad and box-y around here… (forgive the awful pics from here on out. Someone has my point & shoot camera, little Rebel is on his way to the doctor, and so you are left with these dreadful pics from my ipod.)

Recognize this wall?

 

It used to look like this:

My lovely $.50 frames are ready to go to their new home. 🙂 Details from that project here.

And besides that, things are just pilin’ up all over the place:

The house we’re moving into is just 2 houses down from our current house. So…that means everything doesn’t need to be completely packed and padded in boxes. (Like those pictures in the corner? Yeah – I plan to carry them over in stacks.)

All in all, things are going well and progress is happening. I’m looking forward to getting settled in the new house…but I’m also really enjoying my last few days in this house!

I plan to post pics of the new place on Monday. I warn you…it’s lacking some beauty. 🙂 There’s one room that is furnished (and will stay furnished with the same furniture since it’s a rental) and it leaves a bit to be … well, you’ll see what I mean on Monday. 😉

Until then, I’m going to be enjoying my big fat bathtub and glorious kitchen. Even if it is mostly packed. 😉

  1. Ah, we’ll miss this house … but can’t wait to see the new one. Don’t you love a new house, so much to “redo.” Now Auntie Worrisome here: “Christa, don’t overdo it, take care of yourself, be careful, rest a lot.” Okay, I’m back, have fun and talk to you soon 🙂

    Thanks for the concern! I am definitely taking it easy on lifting the boxes and such. My hubby forbid me from carrying anything heavy. I’m trying to follow that… 🙂

    Sounds like you have a lot of work to do with a little one running around and packing. I remember how much work it was for us to move as well. I am looking forward to seeing the photos of the new house:).

    Yes, but she still usually takes a 2 hour nap during the day, so that is an AWESOME time to get things done! Plus, she’s a good little helper most of the time when she’s awake. Last night she helped me pack the rest of my baking ingredients. I made sure to give her boring ones like baking powder and vanilla – not the half-gone bag of chocolate chips. 😉

    Thanks for sharing your experience! Me and my boyfriend are moving house next week and I am already freaking out! 🙂
