Totally didn’t expect to be away from blogging so long!  Good news is we’re finally in the new house!!!  This move was a booger.  It was suppose to be ubber easy since we literally just moved to the neighborhood across the street.  We did a huge chunk of it ourselves (minus heavy furniture and appliances) and wouldn’t you know, it rained EVERY DAY.  We’re still sorting through boxes, but it’s finally a little less chaotic around here.
Some of you may have already seen some of the progress from Instagram.  The kitchen pendants are up and look awwwesome!
Mike got me the kitchen counter stools for my birthday.  Eeeee!!!  Love them.  And they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  Pffff.
The chandelier from our Kansas house was hung and looks right at home.
And curtains are slowly getting put up.
Once I find a camera other than my phone, I’ll show you guys some progress photos.  It’s gonna be a while until everything has it’s happy place, but I think getting there is part of the fun.  Even if the trip looks like a hot mess!
Also, I want to thank you guys for all of your sweet comments about Ruffino.  He was such a sweet boy, and a day still doesn’t go by that we don’t miss him.  So THANK YOU for your kind words 🙂
Ok, I’m off to go haul more boxes out to the curb.  I’ll be peeking out the window trying not to be seen as I pray the trash men take it all.  They didn’t last time :/

    I mean…WOW!! That house is clearly worth the wait & headache of having had to live in a rental and move an extra time. The kitchen is swoon worthy!! I'm jealous of your beautiful light fixtures.
    Can't wait to see more!!

    Yay! I was just thinking about you yesterday and figured you were probably in the middle of moving chaos. Can't wait to see everything come together. But it's already an amazing house as an empty shell. So exciting.
