Hello friends!

I know I’ve been away from this blog for a few weeks, that is because we have been in the process of buying a new house/selling our house/moving! 20131123_075921

It all happened so fast I had no time to do anything but focus on the move. I’ve taken a few pictures  here and there on my phone but I will do a formal house tour once we are all settled in and the rooms are painted 🙂  We had some amazing help this weekend that we are so grateful for!  My sister came home from college this weekend JUST to help us move.  She really is amazing, and I already miss her.

My mom, Erik’s mom, Anya and Patti helped us move our stuff into our new house on Friday.  Sunny and Diana came over Friday night and to help unpack our kitchen (woot!). And Luke and David also came over Friday afternoon to help unload the heavy things! It was amazing.

We spent the night Friday at my mom’s house because we didn’t have anything other than Liam’s room set up.  I should mention that my mom and sister were at our house all weekend helping paint/clean/unpack.  I seriously do not know how we could have made this move without our family and friends.

Saturday morning Erik and I went to the house

20131123_075934and got started unpacking the rest of the boxes.  My mom, sister and cousin Farid came over later in the day to help paint and unpack.

20131124_142241Our family room is my favorite room in the house. I LOVE the exposed brick wall, and how open and happy the room is. We still need to buy a TV stand and set up our Fios, but that will be done sometime this week. Saturday night my sister, Erik and I gather a list of things we needed and headed off to Home Depot….

20131123_205323Once we got back my sister and Erik put the new hardware on the kitchen cabinets (picture fail), and we turned in for the night.  The next day, after I locked us out of our new house, we headed over to my moms to get the key and drop Liam off with my grandma. Erik went back home to finish cleaning up the kitchen and empty boxes while my mom and I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond for some bathroom and kitchen essentials.

When we got back, Anya and Lauren came over to help us paint the living and dining rooms.  I am happy to say we finished both rooms 🙂

20131124_142323The following picture of the living room is only a picture of our AWESOME accent wall, the other walls were painted after I took this picture, but it was too dark to take another one.  I will have to go around the house today to take some more pictures 🙂

20131124_142311The goal tonight is to put away all of our clothes, so that we can set up the guest room and get our upstairs out of the chaos that it is currently in.

Well that is all for now. I wanted to give you all an update 🙂 I took Liam’s 42 week picture, but have yet to do his post about it! I will get around to it soon.

I hope everyone has a great day!

    wooo! you guys are painting machines! Do you have plans for the exposed brick wall? can you hang things on the brick like over the fireplace or put up a mantle of sorts?

    Congrats on your new house! It looks really nice. I’m impressed you did it so fast – it’s nice you had so much help! We’re hoping to sell our house in the next couple of months. We’re really looking forward to being closer to family, so that they can help out with stuff like that.
