House Update!!

So, this is a little late, sorry! The beginning of the week is always super busy for us! Last weekend we worked extra hard at trying to get things done to be moved in! We are getting so anxious! We started moving some of our things in!! So that makes us want to be moved in even more! Let me just say, that we've not been the most organized movers though! There's just something about moving 5 minutes away that takes all of the seriousness out of packing up!
Here is our game closet! It's in the same closet as the a/c return! So the shelves all had to be cleaned really good! I even lined the bottom shelf for easy cleaning! This was really exciting for us because we LOVE playing games! We've not had the time to play in a while, but hopefully we can pass our love for games on to our children!

Well it's time that I fess up. I've been avoiding saying something about a couple of incidents I've had while working on the house because I didn't want it to keep guests away. A couple of weeks ago, Derek called me outside to look at the flower beds and a little mouse ran across the porch disappeared in our flower beds. And then Sunday I was working late and a little mouse ran across the kitchen floor! So when our neighbors asked us to take this cat that their friend had dropped off I felt like it was just an answer to our problems! She was a stray cat that the previous owner saved from being killed! The only way that I could get Derek to agree to keep the cat was to name her Lady Thatcher, I agreed to call her Lady. So here she is, Lady Thatcher, sitting in our living room. She's been super laid back and even lets Anna-Kate chase her around and pet her!

Here is the new pantry floor, thanks to Derek!! He worked really hard cutting and laying down this vinyl tile!

And here is our bedroom; all painted, trim and everything!! My friend Sara came and helped me prime the walls and then Derek and I worked until 1 in the morning Sunday night to get the rest done!

Here's the new rug we bought for the room!! I think it goes really well!!

Derek's mom worked really hard to clean the kitchen up for us! She even lined our shelves!!

I began to move our office stuff over! I am so excited to show the finished product of this room in the next post!
Well it sure has been a lot of work, but we are finally feeling like we're getting to a point where we will be able to move in very soon! I can't wait to put up an update next week!! I think there are going to be a lot of changes!!
