I'm still here!

Hi friends! Thanks for hanging in there while we've been getting settled in at our new place! I wouldn't say we are completely done unpacking and organizing, but we are close.

Moving was way worse than I thought! We just had soooo much stuff, and a lot of it couldn't go on the moving truck, so there were many trips made back and forth with things in our cars. To make it even more complicated, lots of items were going into storage, and some were coming here. Honestly, I think when we move to the next place, I'm going to be unpacking things that I don't even remember I own, because they've been packed away for so long!

Oh yes, and how can I forget that we all got terribly sick the day before we moved. It was just a really bad cold, but it made moving feel so much more difficult! I'm actually not completely better yet...this cold just won't go away!

The good thing is, we aren't in any kind of rush to get this house in order, so I'm just taking it easy. It's really refreshing not to have any pressure anymore! At our previous home, I felt like we were constantly packing and getting things ready for the move, so this is a nice change.

Here are a few pictures from the past couple of weeks. Some, you may have already seen on Instagram, but some are new.

This is the morning we moved! You can't tell, but we are all miserably sick! Audrey was in her jammies most of the day! I think I would have been more emotional about leaving our first home, but I just didn't feel good, and we were so busy that it was hard to think about anything else.

This is what our kitchen looked like shortly after the movers had left. Quite the disaster! Thankfully, my amazing sister-in-law, Christiane had most of it unpacked and organized later that same day!

Audrey wanted to help with boxes too! Don't worry, this one was empty!

Audrey and lola getting comfy at the new place!

Audrey has adjusted so well! She's loving the new playground and the pool! Sometimes she just walks around the house saying "it's a new house!"

 Lola isn't so sure what's going on! Poor thing. She still is a little anxious here...probably wondering when we're going "home". So sad!

Our house seems to be going up really quickly! This is the latest picture I have of it, but there's been even more progress since!

Well, I think that's about it for now! We're just getting used to the new area and trying to get settled here. I'm actually not unpacking too much, since we'll only be here for a few months, but I do want to be comfortable at the same time. Hopefully within the next week or two, I can take some pictures of each room and give you a tour!

Pictures of our rental home

Hey guys! I took a few pictures of the rental home when we got the keys this past weekend, so I thought I'd share them. Not the best quality since they were taken with my phone, but you get the idea.

When you walk in, you're on the main level of the home. This will be a real treat since in our current home, we have to go up a flight of stairs to get to the main level.

This is the main living space. We'll put our sofa and loveseat here along with our small kitchen table. Our dining room table will have to go into storage.

The kitchen is really nice and updated...it even has a 5-burner gas stove! Yay!

When you go upstairs there's a big open space that we're calling "the loft". It's not closed off, but we will probably put our guest bed here so that when family comes to help us move in and out, they have a place to sleep.

The laundry room. The washer and dryer are full size, they're just stacked. I'm thrilled with this space, lots of storage here!

Audrey's bathroom/guest bathroom.

Audrey's room. It has a nice sized closet too!

Master bedroom. I think this is about the same size as our room now, maybe a touch bigger. We'll have to see once our furniture is in.

 There are 2 closets in the master. This one is mine...there's even a window in it! So excited. Bigger than our current shared closet!

Master bathroom. Nicer and newer than our current bathroom! 

Even though I'm not thrilled to be moving into a temporary house, I'm pretty happy that we found this one. It's plenty of space and very new and clean, which was so important to me for Audrey's sake. It's going to be a crazy week here leading up to the move on Saturday, so you might not see me around much, but I might be more active on Instagram if you want to follow along there!

I'll definitely update with better quality pictures once we get settled in!

Have a great week!

3-day cleanse update

Hey friends! Hope you had a good weekend!

I'm starting the cleanse today! My mom is actually joining me too! She's here this week to help me pack so she wanted to try it out! I'm excited that she's doing it along with me...I think the support and accountability will be great!

So far we're just finishing up the morning drink and I love it!

I'm a little concerned about the lunch drink since I've read that many people say it's the worst tasting one of the whole cleanse. I'm kind of used to drinking kale smoothies though, so I'm hoping it's not too difficult to get down! 

I'll keep you posted! Check out my Instagram too for more updates! 

Have a great Monday! We're going over to the rental soon so I can give it a nice deep clean! I'm excited!
