I am SO happy with my new house!  I had no idea I would feel so different moving into a house after living in an apartment for six years.  I didn’t realize I would love it.  I haven’t liked a place I’ve lived for so many years – this is such a blessing!

Here are some moving in pictures:

Emma decorating her new room

You can’t really see it, but she’s putting window clings up – she loooves these!

Our tub was clogged when we moved in (ugh) so when Emma woke up wet I had to give her a bath in the kitchen sink.  She loved it!  lol

I was able to hang up my beautiful suncatcher in the kitchen. :-) Thanks, mom!\

Checking out her new yard

Making friends with the trees (we lost that hair clip out in our jungle of a lawn, waaah!)

We love our new place!  I still have a lot of work to do, but all our stuff is here now.  Now it’s a bit chaotic but slowly coming together.  Must go unpack the rest of the kitchen now – I had to come share these photos with you, though!

  • Love the pics:) Moving into your own home after living in an apartment is the best feeling ever!! I remember those days:):)Congrats!

  • Congratulations on the new house! We are closing on ours tomorrow and should be moved in within 3 weeks to a month (it needs some fixing up before it will be ready to go). I absolutely cannot wait to have more space again! We have boxes in the apartment that never got unpacked from our last move because there is no where to put the stuff. Plus the little girl (Elizabeth, 1 1/2) really needs more space to explore. Oh and we will have a YARD! Elizabeth loves being outside so this will be so much better than just walking through the parking lot of the apartment complex :-)

  • Congratulations on the new house. If you use a product like drano to free the stuck drain and you have a septic be sure to follow it up with Ridx or something similar.
    Your children look happy and you avoid one of the biggest pitfalls in moving in not having problems with the movers! Enjoy these first few days in the home from which you will build so many memories.

  • I hateeeee apartments so much. They’re so tiny! I’m 18 and have only had my own place since August, but my bf and I shared a 2 bedroom with another couple until last month, when things got to be too much and we wound up moving out. We’re so glad we did, but for now we are at his moms which is so far from ideal, of course. But a week from wbednesday is my last day of this college semester so then we’re moving to battle creek with a new roomate. This time we are close friends with the roomate and when things come up (I say when, not if, because I know somethign will when we’re sharing such a tiny space!) we will be able to talk through problems which wasn’t the case with our last roomates. However, I still am SO looking forward to having a house already. I’m sure it’s a little better to have an apartment to yoursef, but I am just ready for a house NOW. haha. :)

    • Apartments are meant to be transitional living places, not homes – that’s my opinion anyway! lol We were fairly happy in our apartment but SO much better in your own place, even if you are renting. :-) I did my exercises this morning and didn’t have to worry about neighbors – YES! :-)

  • Window clings are great for kids, my own kids adore them and if it keeps them happy and occupied, so much the better for me.
