And we’re moved!

Phew.  It’s been a long couple of weeks.  The weekend before last, Ike and I spent the weekend painting the new house (it’s ours!!) and celebrating my birthday.  We painted four ceilings (who paints their ceilings the same colors as the wall? gross.  I’m a strong believer that ceilings should be white, not blue…).  I had ambitious plans to paint an entire room, too, but painting the ceilings took a whole lot longer than I expected.  But, I’m awfully darn proud of those ceilings!

For my birthday, I went out with a group friends went out in the new neighborhood – pizza, bowling and bar hopping.  It was the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of the last year of my 20s.

Last week involved a number of nights of working until midnight, plenty of packing, a birthday dinner with my mom, time spent with friends, and a trip to the Paramount Theatre to see Mamma Mia.  There was entirely too much crammed into one week, but I survived and everything got done.  Phew.  Then, Saturday was the big move!  Thank goodness Isaac has three brothers who were available to help.  Those four, plus me, and three other friends (as well as Isaac’s very helpful 5-year old nephew) made moving as painless as it could possibly be.  And the guys were even able to find time to squeeze in a basketball game at the park just a block away from our new home!

And now, we live in a sea of boxes…

Now the fun begins...

 

But at least it’s a sea of boxes in our very own home!  Wahoo!  I can’t wait to get everything settled so it begins to feel like a real home.

We had to say goodbye to our lovely apartment right near downtown…

Our first home together. (please pardon the sappiness of that statement)

 

With this amazing view…

Won't be able to walk to work anymore...

But it is worth it to have more space and a place that really is our own.  I’m excited about settling down and not having to worry about moving again in a year.   I’ve moved entirely too many times in the last 10 years!
