Momma Moo and I found the perfect Christmas present for my grandparents (her mom and dad)...
|This thing is HUUUUUGE and weighs a lot. I will definitely be helping to eat it.|
We did our usual, where we basically just drove until we were major tired, and stopped at a gas station and did some car sleeping. (It's the only way to do it when you have both cars LOADED down with stuff!)
We woke up a couple hours later, looked like pure hell, and got back on the road. But, only after we had a nutritious breakfast.
We finally made it to our hotel and we weren't even able to check in yet! We took that time to go look at some apartments. We saw one place that we really really liked, but later that night I just up and decided that I didn't want to live there (because of the crime rates) and that I wanted to rent a house somewhere else, instead of an apartment!
Skeeter loved staying in the hotel. Poor thing probably never knows what is going on. He has been carted around, and shuffled here and there. I should a post of all the places the little man has traveled!!
|Skeeter loves his new backyard!|
|my room!!! So excited!!|
|back patio with a doggy door!|
|And my least favorite, the kitchen....|
But the house is adorable. So it was totally worth it!
I cleaned the kitchen for about 6 hours that first day, and I of course had to get a lil something something to reward myself and keep going- hence the bottle in the fridge ;)
|And that's all ya need.|
On the left is the "clean" side, and on the right was the "dirty/before" side.
To give you an idea, I thought the tiles in the kitchen were multi colored. They aren't.
They are white.
So our house is basically in shambles right now. I have gotten the kitchen basically finished. But I am super crazy, and feel like I need to run every dish through the dishwasher once I unpack it. (It's been in storage for awhile? Maybe that isn't crazy?)
Skeeter has been worn out by this whole process. He just wants his bed and his babies, and he is good to go!
|I totally watched The Sandlot like 6 times the other day while unpacking. haha|
There are still soooo many boxes left to unpack, and so much left to do. The way they packed us up is a little crazy too. Every box has an ABSURD amount of paper in it. This one box below just held our plates. For real. Someday I might share some pics of what it looks like finished. That is, if I ever get it finished. HA.
I can't even think about what all there is to do right now, because I am so excited that we get to go home for Christmas!!! I cannot wait! It makes me a little sad that we won't have our first house decorated for our first Christmas, but it is totally worth it to get to spend Christmas with our fams!
We will be completing the holiday tour of 2011. We will basically be making Christmas stops in 5 cities. YES. FIVE. But we are so excited about it! :)
Is this normal? Is anyone else out there going this many places???
Wish us luck!
