Happy Monday, everyone!
Today’s post is going to be super quick. We have a lot going on right now, but I did want to share the good news:
We closed on our house!!
Our closing was on Thursday. Everything went very smoothly, which was a huge answer to prayer. At the closing, we got to meet the sellers, and I’m so glad we had that opportunity. They were such nice people, and we were happy to have the chance to give them a huge “THANK YOU!” for taking such good care of our new home.
After the closing, we had to at least stop by the new house to say hello.
(Don’t let him fool you … he secretly loves my incessant picture taking.)
Our realtor gave us a bottle of wine to help us celebrate our new home. It hasn’t been opened yet, but after a couple more days of unpacking, I’m sure we’ll be needed a drink.
On Friday, some of our new furniture arrived.
That’s not how it’s actually going to be set up, but you get the idea.
Our new king-sized mattress!
(Sorry, Pamela, I know you told me not to get a king, but we already had the king-sized comforter!)
Bright and early on Saturday morning, we headed to the storage unit to get our things.
We had several people helping us, both from Brandon’s work and from church. They were a huge blessing!
Coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts for our helpers.
The guys moved everything into the U-Haul super fast. Before we knew it, we were moving things into the house!
So Brandon’s company paid for professional movers to pack everything up for us in Ohio and drive it down to Georgia. Nice, right? But I think the moving company was just a tad bit excessive with the use of packing paper and boxes.
That’s not even all of it. Half the boxes have already been torn down and are hidden from view. If I never see a box or a piece of packing paper again, it will be too soon!
Brandon and I worked until about 10:00 on Saturday night, and we worked all day Sunday. There’s still a lot to do, but at least our kitchen looks good!
I mean, that is the most important room in the house, right?
Well I gotta get back to work. But I hope all of you have a fantastic day! And stay tuned for some new recipes … you know I can’t wait to get my hands on that oven!!
Question for ya …
What did you do this weekend?
Ever have professional movers move you?
Favorite kind of donut?
