In addition to working our butts off moving and unpacking things this weekend we were also able to have a little fun in the new house. This is something I have really been wanting to do so that I don't just associate my new house with hard work. We had my parents over for a little cookout and were able to enjoy eating on the back deck, also Eric hosted a little guys game night which was lots of fun. Entertaining in the house really makes it feel like home, I can't wait for the housewarming party!
Here are some pictures of the progress from this weekend. Basically it's still a mess but at least it's getting to be more moving mess and less construction so it kind of feels like "my" mess.
|Our sad, empty living room at the old house. I plan to spend a lot of time this week cleaning so we won't have to do it this weekend when we are also moving the last of the stuff|
|Dining room table and chairs moved in, all ready for entertaining :-)|
|My Christmas cactus is confused by the move, it really shouldn't be blooming now.|
|Our Azaleas are budding out at the new house, the Dogwood out back is about to burst in to bloom as well. Spring is here!|
|Grilling out on the patio for the first time, mmmm|
|I think I will never get tired of this room, still a mess but feeling a bit more homey now.|
|bookshelf in place and books starting to be put away, have I mentioned that we have a lot of books?|
|Boys assembled for game night, my Dad is pleased to be close enough to attend easily now :-)|
|bedroom is finally starting to be cleaned out, ready to move the bed in here next weekend!|
