So..move in day- 5 days!

Holy jeez- that is soon.
And am I ready?
-As far as stuff is concerned, yes. Everything is pretty well packed in boxes. My uncle and a church friend are going to help me move plus my parents.
-As far as emotionally, no way Jose. I am terrified.

This move requires me to put on my big girl panties and grow up.
And I'm just starting to enjoy my childhood I think.
Which is freaking terrifying.

Any advice- how you grow up without losing the fun?

Anyway...I am excited. It will be lovely. I love house stuff. I love cooking. I can't wait to have a nook in my room. :)

Oh yes...and here's the house!!!!!

Home Renovation

So even though it's not the new house, it's still a house. My home home. Which has been painted and repainted, modeled and remodeled. Mostly by my mom- she loves redoing things in the house. However, each redo always looks gorgeous. Unfortunately I don't have a ton of before pictures...but there are lots of "here's what it looks like now" pics.

So room.

And after (a world better!)

Next...the bathroom. It used to be green and blue.

Mom's was a deep brown/pink for about a day, then it was light green and a tan for a while. Now, it is this. Much better!

And finally, the kitchen. Probably the biggest and best remodel yet!


It's a great house to come home to!

Bittersweet Symphony

Yes...that is the name of a song but it is also the story of my day. Today is my last day living in a dorm at Millersville. And while there are a zillion reasons why I am thrilled about this, it also feels like a turning point in my life. In a month, I'll be renting a house with two of my closest friends. That's kind of a big deal. It means that I'll be kind of a grown up. And that scares me!

This room of mine has seen a lot of joy and a lot laughter along with some pain and tears. I'm so excited to see where the next two years take me. Because it has been a life-changing two years but's scary.

Growing up is scary. But fun too.

Trace Adkin's song-You're going to miss this...that's where I'm at right now.

Moving Forward...

So we're moving forward with our house.

Yesterday...we turned in the lease. What a huge weight has been lifted. We have an actual address and we've seen the outside of our house..SO CUTE!

We all are moving in on June 5th and can't wait to start this chapter in our lives.

Tons of pictures and questions and ideas to come!
