It’s been a week since we closed on our house and started moving in. It’s been a BUSY week.
Micah and I moved nearly everything in on Thursday last week.
Here’s that darn big couch of ours. We had our neighbor help us. It took a good four or so tries before the boys figured out how to get this sucker down the stairs. I, of course, providing coaching from the sidelines.
We were welcomed at our new house with…
…lots of their junk they decided to leave.
We were exhausted after moving all day.
A much deserved beer and Mexican food after a good 12 hours of steady moving!! We were deliriously tired and ridiculously sore.
We spent the first two days moving and unpacking. And although I was hoping we were beyond having to build our own furniture – alas, that was not meant to be.
We only had to put together two pieces of Ikea furniture. One of course, did not come with instructions. So that required only taking it apart twice before finally figuring it out.
We needed to buy a washer and dryer – and we got an awesome deal at Best Buy on these Samsung ones.
Unfortunately, they got delivered – and we ran our first load of laundry – and the dryer doesn’t work!
We had to go back to work on Tuesday – and our awesome realtor, Sheley, delivered to both Micah and I these awesome welcome baskets.
Micah’s version had a more “manly” arrangement. But she included gift cards to Bai Pai’s which is a Thai restaurant right at the end of our block. Super thoughtful of her!
While we are still in the process of getting things delivered, fixed, set up, hung, cleaned, repaired – we are totally loving having our own place.
We plan on having a few housewarming parties – we figure staggering them will force us to get the house in order and those last few boxes unpacked, and pictures on the wall
