We are successfully moved into our house! The official move day was Friday (yes, the day of all the crazy storms in DFW) and it went remarkably well. We were lucky to get a full-service move paid by my new employer, but it was still an exhausting and long day. The movers arrived Friday at the apartment at 8:30 AM and left the house at 9:30 PM. For it only being the two of us, we certainly have a lot of stuff, and goodness those guys worked hard! We were very blessed as it only rained on us while we were driving from the apartment to the house. I am very thankful it didn't actually rain while they were loading/unloading the truck as the storm was pretty bad (found out later it knocked down our neighbor's fence!). 

Saturday was spent unpacking and we were able to unpack and break down all the boxes. As a break, we went to Matt's work's Family Day and had a great time. The weather was absolutely perfect and we got to spend a lot of time outside- so nice after the stress of the day before. 

These bags are FULL of packing paper. So much paper.
We kind of grew found of the mountain of boxes. Made for a fun path to walk over.

On Sunday we spent some time organizing several rooms like the master closet and the garage. Things aren't quite perfect yet, but with time it will. I have to keep on reminding myself Rome wasn't built in a day and our house won't be 'perfect' for a long time if ever. Our to do list has certainly grown dramatically since becoming homeowners but it has already been worth it! We are very glad we purchased the house we did and can't wait to make amazing memories in it.

As far as today goes, I'm currently sitting in the car dealership customer lounge, waiting for them to install a new starter lever in my car. So it has been an interesting and different morning! Hope you had a great weekend and you aren't having any car issues :)




    Love, Mom

  2. You said it didn't look like a home yet, but all the stuff in the front hall makes it look really lived in! Sorry your car chose that time to get sick, but isn't that just the way things happen? Congrats to both of you! Love, Paula
