How is everyone doing here in Bloggyland???
I'm so sorry that I haven't posted any updates lately.... I think I just got major burnout and felt pressured from all of those EC drops and Adgitize clicks and then there was the whole New Orleans fiasco and moving etc.... not to mention my addiction to games over on Facebook.
Well I'm happy to report that we moved into a new home on July 3rd and have settled in pretty well. I have to thank our friends and family once again who stepped up to help us load and unload the truck.... what a job that was!!! I still have some unpacking to do but it will get done eventually...... mainly all of those books and candles and craft supplies that it took me forever to pack. Adrian got back to working full time just in time for us to make the move. There are of course things we miss about our old place.... but new things that we love about our new place as well. It's just a tad smaller which is good because it's not too big and we still have plenty of space without feeling cramped up. It has 3 nice sized decks that we now need outside furniture for..... and a huge yard full of trees with ivy growing up them.... absolutely enchanting! Adrian is only about 5 minutes from work and we're also closer to most of the places that we shop. I do miss being close to the other places I loved to frequent..... and I miss my fireplace..... and I really miss having my son and his little family just down the street. But it's not like they're too far away to visit whenever we want... just not walking distance anymore.
So here are a few pics of our new home.... it's pretty.... quiet and peaceful here.... even though we're in the city limits it feels like we're in the country.
Steffie has just turned 5 on the 1st of this month and is doing well. She had a lil bit of an adjustment period with the move but she is getting back to normal and accepting the changes. I will post pics of her birthday soon. I'm seriously contemplating painting her new room the colors of her old room.... it was soooo cute.... but do I really want to invest the time of painting on a rental home that we have no idea how long we will live in??? Maybe we'll be here for several years... maybe not... we can't really know at this point. She now has 2 rooms by the way... her bedroom and a play room across the hall..... how's that for being a lucky lil girl???
This is what her old room looked like..... the white walls of her new room are just plain and boring.....
That's it for now.... Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
