We're Moved In! (Kind Of)

I wanted to update everyone on the moving process! It's going good and we're working on getting everything out of our old place. We're in that super awkward stage of moving where all that's left is random odds and ends, trash, oh, and our food. All our food is still in the fridge and pantry. 

I basically want to throw away everything in the fridge and start anew. Is that wrong? 

I feel like I could walk in with a grocery bag, grab the bag of coffee out of the fridge, the kids' chicken nuggets and my bottle of vodka out of the freezer and be good to go. Toss the rest! 

Moving is a really great time to become a minimalist. It's so much easier to let go of something when you're forced to consider packing it, transporting it, and unpacking it. I have a whole trash bag of items ready to be donated to the airman's attic. That's after I went through the whole house a couple weeks ago and donated bags of things. Who needs all this stuff??

Anyway. Enough of that. I have homework to do. What I really wanted to do here was give you a glimpse of our moving experience and new house! And by glimpse I mean crappy pictures I took with my 2 year old phone (in other words, ancient). 

My walk in closet! It's so big we decided to giveaway our old dresser and just use this!

After a long day of packing.

Mr. C is great at  unpacking. Note: This is what happened when I tried to barricade him into the kitchen while Mr. Eight was bringing heavy boxes in through the front door. All the fragile glass dishes are in the bottom there. Sigh.
Things will hopefully be back to normal soon! I'm looking forward to bringing you some awesome Halloween tutorials. See you soon!


  1. I do not envy you my dear. I've never liked moving. :/

  2. That closet is huge! I would love something like that.

  3. Moving is always a huge job. My ex moved me all over the place before I ended up in San Diego. Not looking forward to another move.

  4. We had a huge closet like that once. It was great! Wish I still had it.

  5. Glad you're close to being done. Moving stinks! Especially with kids.

  6. Moving is so much work. Your kids are great helpers :)

  7. Moving can be such a big job, I bet you are glad its all done!
