Wordless Wednesday - 8/31

Kind of crazy!

It's been kind of crazy around here. We are trying to get use to the new school schedule. Camryn is a little sleeper so getting her up early has been a little bit of challenge but she is adjusting. Believe it or not she is actually doing really well at school. She cries for a few seconds at drop off but is back to her self within minutes :-) So glad that she is making progress.

Payten is loving school! Not that I had any doubt. Every day she comes home and tells me all about her day. Its super cute!

I know I haven't posted one house picture and frankly its because its still a disaster zone around here. The girls rooms are pretty much finished except for a few finishing touches and I will post pictures of those soon! The hubby is finishing up painting the living room tonight so we are making progress. I will post pictures by the weekend, I hope :-)

Happy Tuesday!

Birthday Outfit

Of course Camryn has to have a personalized shirt for her birthday. This year I am trying a new seller on Etsy, Banana Bear Boutique. I am excited to see the finished product! I am also thinking of having a tutu made as well. I'll be sure to post pictures when it arrives :-)

I just love birthday planning! Now if I could only find the time to work on the decorations :-)

Halloween Costumes

I love looking back on what the girls were for Halloween. It's amazing how much they change from year to year! This is the first year Payten could really tell us what she wants to be. So I guess I'll enjoy this last year choosing what Camryn will be :-)

Payten's 1st Halloween she was a bumble bee!

Payten's 2nd Halloween - Fairy / Camryn's 1st Halloween - Pea in a Pod

And last year... my little lady bug and lion!!!

This year Payten is choosing to be Snow White (her favorite princess right now) and Camryn will be a fairy!

First day of school!

The girls are adjusting to lots of new changes. First the move and now a new school. The first day went better then I had imagined. Payten of course LOVES it and well Camryn did okay. Not too bad considering this is her first year going to school. Its a huge adjustment for her but will be a good one. I can't wait to see what the school year will bring for them! Since Camryn turns two in less than 2 months she will then we switched to the 2 year old classroom which I think will be great for her to be with kids more her age.

Here are a few pictures from the girls 1st day!

Wordless Wednesday - 8/24

1st day of School

We're moved!!!

We finally closed on the house on Thursday and its been crazy ever since! Friday we did lots of painting and moving of little things. Saturday was the BIG day! We started at 8am. Loaded up the first truck and got to the new house at around 2p. We unloaded, had some pizza and the guys went back to the old house to get another load. They got the entire 24 ft truck loaded, and it was packed to the gills! And the truck wouldn't start..... go figure!

My hubby called the 24 hour hotline and they sent out a mechanic only to find out that they couldn't fix the truck that night and we would hear from someone in the morning. . . Well my hubby called Budget at 7a and said they were sending someone out there, well now its 11am and nothing. The gentlemen that came out the night before called my hubby and asked him if someone had to come fix it or at least towed it for us and of course they did not. The guy called my hubby back to say he was on the way to tow the truck to the new house for us.

They finally arrived at 2p and we unloaded another load. There was still some stuff left at the house so my hubby went back with our truck to grab as much as he could. Needless to say this was the longest move EVER!!!!!!

We are finally getting settled but I am sure it'll be a few weeks before everything is complete. Stay tuned for before and after pictures!

A break

I should totally be packing right now but I need a break! I feel like all I have been doing is organizing and packing! And I still have a ways to go!!!!!!!!!!! Its crazy to see how much stuff we really do have. And what is even crazier is that we are not keepers. I donate, sell, throw away just about everything, I just don't get it!

The closing on the house is tomorrow. We have been luckily enough to get into the house early thanks to the awesome sellers. So the hubby has been painting his little heart away! Here is a little sneak peek to Payten's room. Loving the way its coming out. So far Payten, Camryn's, the girls bathroom, and the office is painted. Still lots to do but its coming along.

I am sure it'll be days or even maybe a week before you hear from me again so I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

It's Moving Sale Day!

Today is the day of our "Moving" sale. We had picked this date thinking we would close on the 15th but since that is most likely not happening we decided to go through with it anyway. We want to be prepared just in case they actually do come through and get us closed by next week.

So the hubby and I will be out in the heat all day sweltering. Let's hope all of our BIG items sell so its less we have to move!!!!!!!!

Doesn't look good. . .

Well its Friday and no word from the sellers bank so I am pretty sure we won't be closing on Monday, sigh! I am beyond disgusted with this whole process. This has been going on since February!!! SIX MONTHS!!!!!!!!! This is ridiculous! But I guess its out of our control and we just have to sit and wait some more. I am praying we here from them soon so we can finally close!!! Happy Friday, I think?!

And now this is what the house looks like due to no one living there since February!!! We have lots of work on the outside as well now :-(
