Weekend in Review- Moving Fun & Family

holy guacamole i am tired.

to recap i closed on my house last tuesday and im so friggin excited about it ! but we started moving immediately after that. my realtor was so kind to get us a cleaning lady which i am very thankful for, or else i would have been doing it plus the moving and painting!

we got the power, water and internet/cable on the same day and camped out in the living room. and it’s been a whirlwind since.

in that time i have painted: 3 bathrooms, mini’s room + closet, my room + walk in closet, + half of the baseboards that need painting.

this weekend was extra crazy and i knew it would be so i took friday off cause i asked my dad to help me, and D was out of town for the weekend.

(our first weekend and he’s not there ! *gives him major side eye*)

but let me tell you how THANKFUL i am for my dad. he’s the real MVP, he needs a trophy or something. 

the sellers of this house had 2 huge dogs and i wanted to change out the carpet in mini’s room, but upon final walkthru of the house i found a huge hole in the carpet in the master which was previously hidden by their ginormous dog crate.

(when i say their dogs were big i’m talking a great dane and siberian husky. they were more like little ponies actually, and i can say that because i met both of them.)

anyway, i originally asked my dad to help me redo baby girl’s floor and then realized i might as well just do my room too because of said carpet hole. so after he agreed to do one bedroom of carpet removal and floor installation it changed to 2 bedrooms, and 2 closets one of which being a walk in closet. he graciously agreed and i promised to help.

and i did, but he really did most of the engineering of it all; figuring out the best way to lay them to minimize waste & need to cut, measuring and cutting and of course actually laying them. and then you gotta get the quarter round molding to finish the edges too.

(can you see where babygirl contributed to painting this room?) 


he was working from friday early am, because he came in thursday night, til sunday pm, like 6-7pm, and then he still had to drive 3+ hours home! and go to work today !!

like i said he needs a trophy or something. maybe a drink too.

and also my family, like they are awesome.

i really just gotta say how BLESSED i am to have a family like i do. they were there for me when i really needed them and i am so GRATEFUL to have them in my life! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

my uncle lent me these awesome air mattresses so we could sleep on, and helped me unload my storage unit. (he also let me and mini stay with him during our transition time- shout out to you !! <3)

also shout out to my mom, brother, stepdad, aunt, cousin & her boyfriend!

they helped me unload my storage unit, start to unpack boxes, start putting things away, help babysit mini so i could help my dad and paint everything. they helped me clear things up so i could live in a more organized mess as i continue to unpack. they helped me in ikea cause i am still in need of things for the house. they are just awesome people and i hope they know how much i love them and APPRECIATE THEM FOR EVERYTHINGGGGGG.

more pics coming soon!

    My darling as you say FAMILY is everything. I know how exhausted you must be, but, at the same time very happy to have your own place to call HOME. And, yes, your Dad needs a trophy (he has one in you), Kudos to all that helped you and I am sure will continue to do so. Your place will be beautiful when you finish it, as you want it, and you can appreciate it so much better. Love you

    You, Busy Bee, are simply Extraordinary, and I believe also that your Dad is THE MVP. I understand fully (Pat tells me also) why everyone finds him admirable, including Pacale, Nounoune, Roby, Mark, simply everyone. He is very generous, and hard working, and loves you.

    You are one courageous woman, and you know that parents’ love for their children has NO LIMIT. They will always walk the extra mile, put in the extra efforts, to make sure you are well. This is the way we were brought up, on both sides, and it is I believe the good way, the best way, the only way.

    I am eager for the finished products. Send pics pls.

    Your dad us definitely an MVP, team player and always ready to help. The weekend was too short would have loved to be able to assist more. It takes time to get everything the way you want it, don’t over exhaust yourself. I remember when we moved I took a week off and still it took time to get it together😁 Very proud of you and love you very much.

    That’s amazing B, and what a great change ! The floors look great, what a talented DAD! I have hopes of a house within the next couple of months, and will also be taking up carpet and with luck, there are wood floors underneath (there is wood downstairs, so hope upstairs too) otherwise will lay floors like yours. It makes such a difference having your own place, emotionally and financially. Enjoy, and your creativity will flourish also* Love xxx Bernadette

      i was hoping we would have beautiful floors underneath the carpet but sigh no such wonder did occur. laying the floors was no easy task but i know that with my dads help it was my own touch on the house and i will cherish it from here on. ❤
