We Are In!

Can I get an AMEN!


Okay everyone...that is right. We are no longer the occupants of a hotel. Woohoo! Let me say that again...WOOHOOOOOOOO.

Last Thursday (which was also hubby and my anniversary, happy anniversary) we were able to move into our home. After 5 days of travel, 30 days of living in a hotel, countless fast food meals, hours of pool time, wearing the same clothes every week, and lost sanity-we are IN.

Even moving in had to be exciting though. We found out that we could move in on Thursday but were told that it would be a week before the moving company could deliver our stuff. Eeek! After some magic, the company was able to deliver our things Friday.

So we still moved in Thursday and just camped out in our new home.

The previous home owners (still nearby) were so gloriously wonderful and lent us sleeping bags, air mattresses, card table, and chairs.

We were so excited to camp in our new home. We even decided to buy a frozen pizza and "cook" our own dinner.

Good in theory until Hubby and I had to carefully and strategically pry the pizzas off the oven racks (since we forgot we didn't have pizza pans) with a plastic disposal knife (again forgot we had no utensils), our bare hands (oops no pot holders) and onto a cake stand I just happened to purchase a couple of days before (because we had no trays...of course...sensing a pattern?)

It was quite a site. It was a miracle we didn't loose the pizza, our fingerprints, or our eyebrows.

Our first meal in our new home was just lovely.





Who doesn't love pizza cooked from your very own oven??

So know we are in. Technically we have been in for 5 days. Most all the boxes are unpacked. Most all the stuff has found a place somewhere. Rooms are starting to feel like our own. We went grocery shopping. We have made dinner. I have washed laundry. We have been welcomed.

Basically we are settling in.

Soon I promise pictures of our home. I hope to have some projects show up...most will probably be home related since I have some new areas to decorate. I even have some recipes now that I have a kitchen back.

So stay tuned friends...I am BACK.

That is great to hear that you are in your new home. It must have been a very long month. What a blessing all your stuff arrived quicker and you can start feeling settled again. After my recent move, I know how hard it is to be unsettled. I hope you love Idaho. I would love to live there.
