Movin on up

I haven’t read one book this week. SAD FACE to the max :(

Our closing on the new house was delayed due to paperwork problems, we found a leak our first day after moving in, the shower heads don’t work, and the closet is too shallow to fit a hanger.

So I’ve been a little wrapped up in all that BS and basically shut myself off from the rest of the world, including blogs.

But it’s all worth it since we own our very first home all to ourselves! And we are going to make it SO fabulous y’all! And our neighbors are super nice, introduced themselves and invited us over for drinks already! And our home is gorgeous!


Hopefully with the long weekend we’ll finally get totally unpacked, I will finally be able to return all my friends’ phone calls and I will read AT LEAST one book! But mostly I hope to sleep, like this:


But shhhh, don’t tell hubby, because Kedzie is totally not allowed on the couch!
