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.
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!
