So it's finally official!
(for those of you who asked, we got this as a gift but it is from Personalization Mall. I've also seen them at Home Depot, such a great gift!)
We are no longer bouncing between two houses and living out of boxes. In fact, the only boxes we have that have yet to be unpacked are in our gameroom and Jon's office. Let's just say that I can barely move this morning. Moving is HARD WORK!!!
The fact that our house will be filmed for national TV on Sunday sped up the moving/decorating process quite a bit. We have done so much in the past couple of days, it's exhausting to think about. We had painters last Wednesday for the two story areas and then Friday night we had such a fun night with my parents and family friends painting and doing projects around the house. Seriously...you find out who really loves you when you move! I got home from work on Friday and my mom and some of the "Bunco Babes" we already painting. My dad ended up staying past midnight painting our master bedroom and we were up past 2 mounting our new TV. Jon and I just kept talking about what a blessing it is to be surrounded by friends with such giving hearts. We had friends fixing toilets, installing lights, hooking up our washer dryer...all out of the kindness of their hearts!

One of Jon's buddies came in for the whole weekend just to help us move. Talk about a good guy. Unfortunately Jon and Kevin were our only movers but they had fun making the heavy lifting a workout. Turns out the electricity in our old house had been turned off so I couldn't vacuum or use water to clean...whoopsies!
So our walls practically drank paint so I had to make a Home Depot run. Despite showering multiple times this weekend, I am still covered in paint (my leg is showing off my craft room paint)
Jon's bff stopped by to help unload the Uhaul which was a blessing to have another set of man hands haha. My parents also came back over to help finish some painting and put together our new dining room chairs. Here is a sneak peek but I have to say I am obsessed.
Before we even bought the house I knew I wanted a chevron wall somewhere and last night we made that happen. If you've read my blog awhile you'd know that my husband is an engineer by schooling and that came in handy for this project. The wall took 7 hours start to finish and I assure you these are the most perfect looking/measured chevrons I've ever seen! Can't wait to show y'all
Call me crazy but I had a blast organizing and color coding our closet. Our closet is massive compared to the shoebox we had before but it filled up fast! Ernie is so funny, he won't let me out of his sight. He even comes into the water closet with me!

Literally the only time we sat down this weekend was yesterday at church. We have been go-go-go since we closed on the house 2 weeks ago but it has been so worth it. Tonight we have a few things to do but for the most part, we are going to take the night off.
Thank you all for your well wishes and support!
linking up with Jenni today!
