i have been missing in action for the last week. to say moving is a chore is an understatement. at the moment i can’t find the cords to upload my digital SLR or my point and shoot. so, iphone pictures will have to suffice for now.
we spent mother’s day unpacking boxes but met up with my mom and my sister at andolini’s pizzeria.
we moved all of the boxes and clothing items ourselves so we spent many days before the big move trying to get as much as we could unpacked. we brought over a little TV so that the kids were entertained while mom & dad worked.
in the midst of it all i decided to start repainting a china cabinet that i purchased off of craigslist a couple of weeks ago.
the movers came and finished things off by taking care of the furniture and appliances for us.
we finished unpacking and started decorating. court painted a chalkboard wall for me in the kitchen:
the living room was the first room we set up. we still have drapes to hang and the fireplace to be tiled.
i ordered a sample of this tile for the fireplace. i love it!
miss holly mathis is helping me to pick out wallpaper to line the wall behind the newly painted china cabinet in the dining room. we also have to swap out the builder light for our chandelier.
we said goodbye to our old house. i was very emotional about it (although he didn’t say so i think court was too — i caught him going around taking photos of each room). we lived in this home for almost six years and have so many memories here.

we even got to enjoy the neighborhood park before all of the storms started rolling in.
