Moving Update

Like that title? I’m so full of creativity these days. Can’t you tell?  lol  I do feel a bit overwhelmed with my to do lists lately.  As things get crossed off I am hoping my creativity will return.  To recap, 12/12/12 we closed on our house and moved in on 12/22.  I took some pictures of the move and wanted to share them with you.

The week before we moved we had our new appliances delivered.  They actually arrived on my birthday.  Nothing makes me feel older than getting appliances for my birthday.  Don’t get me wrong, they are fabulous appliances and we are blessed to have them.  BUT it sure does reminded me of previous birthdays when I got an expensive purse or a sassy new pair of shoes.DSC_0765DSC_0769
Moving day and the Uhaul was packed!  We have too much stuff!DSC_0783
How quickly some things were unpacked

Introducing the pups to their new house and yard.  Video to come soon!DSC_0407
The first harvest from our new garden.  These peppers are so good; I’ve been putting them in the Mr’s hummus and he loves it!
I’ve really got to get myself together on what I will plant in the spring.  I am so excited about this!DSC_0772

Just 3 days after we moved we celebrated our first Christmas in the new house.  It was also our first Christmas in Texas.  It was slow and peaceful; we enjoyed it very much.  We didn’t get a tree (I didn’t see the point in buying a tree that was probably too dry for only 3 days), so I put up a really small one I found while unpacking.  I hung Santa hung the pups stockings by the tree.  They got two LARGE chew bones and two toys each from Nanna.  They were so very happy!DSC_0792DSC_0793DSC_0797
On Christmas we skyped back home while we opened gifts.  The Mr also gave his parents a tour of the new house.  We are so grateful for how teachnology keeps up connected!DSC_0794DSC_0795DSC_0804More moving updates to come! Hope you’re not getting board with the moving posts; this is just where we are in life right now.   We’ve got more furniture and DIY projects to do, after that I can’t wait to give you a tour of case de Hawley!

I LOVE the updates. This is your life, and it's a beautiful ride, right!?! Looks like everything is moving right along. Before you know it a year will have passed and you'll ask, now just where did all that time go! We celebrate 6 months in our house at the end of Feb... can you believe that?!

Technology really is great...especially when there is distance between family. I bet your video of the puppies exploring their new home is so fun!! I enjoy watching our puppy when he goes to a new house or when we've moved. I can't even imagine how much of a sensory overload their noses experience. ha!

I love all the pictures and updates! It makes me want to get out there sooner rather than later! It sounds like it's coming together step by step!

Your unpacking priorities are just about what I would expect for you. ;)

I can't wait to see the video of the pups seeing their new home and backyard for the first time!

I love the virtual tour! Haha! I know how you feel about birthdays when you get older...they just aren't as exciting or fun. You feel bad splurging on something you want, when there is plenty that you need! Congrats on the new home! Can't wait to see posts as it comes together and becomes your HOME!
