Closing Day!

It's finally here! We'll be closing on the new house this afternoon and spending the next few days moving in and unpacking. I am weirdly excited about the unpacking process. Packing everything to move out of a place sucks... just no way around it. But knowing we're about to settle into a home for years and years, finding the perfect place for all our things? That is going to be so much fun! Sure, we'll be sore and tired from hauling in box after box but it's going to be SO worth it.

The new house will probably feel pretty empty for awhile. Since it's much larger than our previous home, we definitely have some furniture shopping to do as we settle in. I'm not in a hurry to get it all decorated ASAP, as I think it's going to take us some time to figure out what we like and how we want to style things. Almost all the furniture we've owned has been hand-me-downs or Craigs List finds, so I'm pumped to invest in some nicer things that will hopefully last us a long time.

So we'll be a little busy for the next few days. If you don't hear from me, I may be buried in cardboard boxes ;) Oh, yeah- and we'll be hosting T's first birthday party Sunday afternoon. We are definitely crazy people, but I just didn't want to wait and put it off for weeks which I know would have happened. It was hard enough finding a date that most of our family could attend so we're just rolling with it. We're keeping the party low-key with just immediate family members but I can't wait to celebrate our little guy.

I'm sure no one will be surprised by this, but we went with a Mickey theme. It's pretty much giving me the Disney trip itch more than ever. I cannot wait to take T there one day! But for now, some balloons and party hats will have to be enough ;)

I will be MIA for a few days, so I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

  2. So much excitement for your family this week! It'll be crazy, but you'll be making some great memories, I'm sure. First birthday, first night in your new home, etc. will be so fun to look back on. And I LOVE unpacking in a new house. Finding a place for everything makes me so happy, it almost makes me want to move a gain...except actually, never again. Ha!

  17. Congrats on closing!! Hope you guys are enjoying that new home!!
    And I totally agree about the unpacking! It's like Christmas! When we built last year, we started packing once we knew when we'd be moving, so stuff sat in boxes for several months. It's STILL a surprise going through some of our boxes that we haven't touched yet and seeing what is inside!!!

  18. Mickey was a theme Connor never really got on board with, which makes me said now that he is so "old" and doesn't let me pick his themes.
