Exploring the New Neighborhood

24 Aug

We have spent a majority of our first days in the new house focused on unpacking. We have made major progress but still have boxes to unpack. We have assembled furniture, organized the kitchen, hung towel racks and shower curtains, re-hung closet organizers and tried to figure out where all our furniture should go. Also, we have been searching for new bedroom furniture to maximize our current master bedroom. While we gained space overall, we lost some square footage in our master bedroom (and closet) but we are okay with that!

Plus, we have met some really nice people in our neighborhood! I think Miss H has enjoyed the neighbors (especially the one with the dog)  and finding the cool neighborhood playground.

We tested it out last night and we have promised to go back this weekend. Hope everyone has had a nice week and we will post progress pictures this weekend.

We Moved In!

19 Aug

This was our big move into our new house weekend! And it went really smoothly. Our great movers from Two Marines Moving arrived early and spent a large portion of the morning going down our many steps with all our stuff. The only one unhappy about our move was Miss H. She spent most of the morning moping about all the boxes, all her stuff and she just ‘really, really’ wanted to stay at the old house. To ease her worries and sad face, we whisked her away to her favorite babysitter for a day of parties, picnics and fun three year old style.

Once she returned to the new house and saw all the boxes moved, her new ‘barina pink’ room and the huge playroom, she decided she could stay.

Besides getting everything moved, Next Day Blinds came by to measure all 17 windows. Even though it cost a small fortune, it will be nice to have a little privacy because right now, I feel like I live in a fishbowl. I was the easiest customer all day! And, most of the windows will be covered by this coming weekend. We ordered shutters for the living room, dining room and kitchen and they won’t be ready until the beginning of September.

Mom arrived late in the afternoon to help and unpack and help entertain Miss H. She did a great job with both! Plus, we had several friends stop by today and we put them to work assembling furniture 🙂

Miss H picked the dinner menu tonight and opted for pancakes. She needed the coat because it is ‘too cold on here.’

So, we have moved in, met many neighbors, been invited to the neighborhood party and have lots and lots of boxes to unpack but all is well in the new house. We love our new home!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
