Though some days, I've questioned that--the late nights up working on the house have resulted in some zombie-like mornings, that's for sure.
We're work-work-working away, trying to get as much done as possible so we can get settled and, you know, host a first birthday party. (We're CRAZY.)
What's important to know is that we're officially moved into the house. We got a crew together on Saturday and moved all of the big stuff, and started sleeping at the house that night. But we're not at all settled, that's for sure. So much work to be done, so much unpacking to do... I honestly try not to think about the entire scope of things, because then I get overwhelmed.
Anyway, all of this + no internet access = I don't have much time for a post to tell you all about what we're working on. Plus, it'll be more fun to show you and give more details when we have "before" AND "after" shots to share--so I'll just leave you with a few pics to give you a glimpse into our lives these days! Some of these are from the new house, some are from the mayhem that became the condo during the packing stages. Oh, and note--these are all taken with our point-and-shoot. Our DSLR hasn't even made it out of the bag in like a week. (SAD!)
As you can see, we are dealing with some BEAUTIFUL carpet. And by "dealing," I mean RIPPING THAT SHIT OUT.
Outdated style abounds. We've been removing wallpaper in our kitchen. We had contests about who could rip off the largest pieces without it tearing.
Who doesn't love a fresh coat of paint when they move into a place? We're no different--but trying to paint the entire house has been a challenge, to say the least. We have exactly *ONE* room done, and that is Nora's. This pic is of our living room. We have one coat done, but need to do a second one + priming and painting the trim. Ick.
Back at the condo... Moving day.
The moving crew. Love every single one of 'em!
And, of course, we had to end with a quick shot of our sweet girl playing in her new front yard.
More to come!
