Hi, hello, how are things?
It has been a crazy whirlwind since we moved. Between unpacking like crazy, getting things set-up in the house and just in general, getting used to our own space again, we’ve just been busy…busy…busy!
I had these grand plans to decorate the house for Christmas the day we moved. You guys know how much I love the holiday season, and us having a brand new house was definitely motivating to get the decorations up.
Well….this was the extent of our Christmas decorations.
Since we were living with my in-laws for the past few months (with a very small amount of our belongings), it was like Christmas Day while we were unpacking. I honestly forgot about 1/3 of the things we owned, which makes me think that I could definitely declutter a bit. Time for a garage sale, right?
It took Millie about a week to get settled in when we moved. Our new house is larger than our previous house, so I think she is still adjusting to all of the rooms she has to “guard”. One thing that didn’t change for her was that our sofa + blanket = bliss.
While Christmas was a whirlwind (it really didn’t feel like Christmas happened), I did have a lot of fun shopping the after-Christmas sales. Of course, I had to buy all sorts of new Christmas decor (hi Hobby Lobby and Target!), and I also attacked the Lush buy one get one sale. It’s the only time of the year I buy from them, because I’m cheap.
A few months ago, I purchased a Nespresso. While I’m a huge fan of Keurig, I’m frequently visiting coffee shops for a $4 espresso drink. When the Inissia went on major sale (I guess this color was being discontinued?), I had to get it. Y’all…why did I wait so long to buy this? Around the holiday season, I mixed a little eggnog with my espresso and it was heavenly! I love it!
Y’all may remember that my sister and I signed up for the half marathon last year. While the half marathon wasn’t in the books for me, I was able to transfer my registration to the 5k. I didn’t train at all, so I walked most of the race. I was slow, but I finished.
As far as house pictures go, I promise I will be sharing pictures very soon! I thought it wouldn’t take very long to unpack everything, but oh man…I was SO wrong. We’re getting there though…slowly, but surely. I think we’re about 90% done!
