We're Moving!

It's official!  Months of waiting and worrying and watching construction will finally pay off.  We are moving into our new home this Saturday, February 7th. 


Um, yeah, the day after tomorrow.  When did I find this out?  This morning.  (To be fair, we were considering dates between the 7th and 14th.  I just assumed we'd end up with the later date.)  We had a small head start packing, so we really need to kick it into gear now.  A friend from our ward came over this afternoon and packed up our kitchen.  She was awesome!  The kids and I are now busy getting everything else boxed up.

Well, I just wanted to take a second to update you all and let you know that I haven't forgotten anyone.  I'll be back in the blogging game soon enough.

Here are a few photos of the new place.

Any of you who Face Book with me can see more photos in my new album.

I can't decide which is to do for more...the spacious laundry room with actual tile that can easily be washed (because lets face it, even though we clean things in the laundry room, that room gets DIRTY!) or the spacious horseshoe shaped kitchen. Very nice! All of it.

Bea-u-tiful! Packing always takes longer (and more boxes) than I think it will. Good luck this weekend!

(Oh, and I was totally right--my 11-year-old tried stealing the purse. I swiped it back, and I've been using it to hold my iPod while I do housework when I don't have any pockets. It rocks. :D)

It is beautiful! Have fun finding places to put stuff. (That is my favorite part - figuring out how to make it "my" home.)

Loralee and the gang... said...

Gorgeous! I love the color of the laundry room- is that a celery color?
Every room looks so elegant- I wish you the best :)

That laundry room kicks BUTT!! Ours is our half bathroom...urgghh!LOL

CaJoh said...

The place looks great. Now that you have a "before" photo, you will need to have an "after" photo of what it looks like with furniture, laundry, etc.

Good luck on your move.

Kim said...

Hallelujah! The day has finally arrived! The house looks wonderful! Bet the only thing that won't be better in the new house compared to the rental is cleaning so many more square feet (but at least they're really beautiful square feet)! We're sure excited for you, and it will fun to be neighbors now.

Diane said...

Your new house looks beautiful. We always end up buying older homes. I guess we have a thing for the 70's.

Becky said...

I am so happy for you--it looks fabulous. I hope it all goes well!
