Home Sweet Home!!!

>> Tuesday, June 14, 2011

I can't believe that I'm finally saying this, but we are finally moved in to our new home!!!

We weren't sure when closing would be, which was beyond stressful for planning and coordinating the move.  Jackson woke up Friday morning with a little fever (I hate teething) so he needed to be kept home from school.  I stayed home with him, which ended up working out pretty good when we found out at noon that we'd be able to close at 4PM that day.  Since Jackson wasn't sick, were able to get a lot done during the day in preparation for closing and the big move!

My dad flew down for the weekend, so he was able to watch Jackson while I got coolers of water and beer packed and loaded up on snacks for my helpful movers:)

While Mr. and I were at closing, my dad and step-dad picked up a U-haul moving van and went to our storage unit to start loading.  I'm beyond blessed with these two guys.  I have two of the most generous and selfless dads in the world!

After Mr. and I signed about a thousand pieces of paper, we picked up my mom and dropped Jackson off to Felicia (our old nanny), and headed to our new house! Felicia was in town for the weekend, so she watched Jackson for us and they kept each other quite entertained:) I miss that girl so much!

From Friday night through Sunday night, we literally busted our asses and got completely moved in.  Every box has been unpacked.  Almost every picture and mirror has been hung.  And the guys even managed to completely floor the attic - in the oppressive Louisiana heat! My step-dad put his leg through the attic a couple of weeks ago, so the flooring was pretty necessary. 

We have a list of stuff still to do, like getting new bar stools, candles, and putting out our picture frames - but, we're home and it sure is sweet!!!

The 4th bedroom is pretty much empty, so I didn't take a picture and the master bath and 3rd bathroom are really hard to get a good picture of.  But, we're ready for visitors and glad to be home:)
