Moving Day(s)

We are all moved into our new house! I'm blogging from our new office and it feels so nice to have a designated office again instead of a corner of the living room! We still have some boxes to unpack in this room, the basement, and master closet, but we've been enjoying setting up and living in our our new place!

Last Saturday, we prepped a few final things for moving since our final walk through was at 7am the next morning. It felt surreal to get to stay in the house after our sellers, their agent, and our real estate agents left that morning after we did a final look through all of the rooms. Once they left, we immediately starting bringing in boxes -- I stayed at the new house while Andy went back to the old house to grab another load. 

I got to work unpacking while Andy was loading up the car with another round of items and it was so fun to plan out the cabinets and decide where everything should go! Packing is kind of a pain, but I really enjoy unpacking since it means you're in a new place and you get to be creative with everything!

After awhile, my sister and my nieces came over -- they brought this amazing housewarming basket for us, along with some sprinkle donuts! We are so excited to have Andrea and her family living just down the road -- seriously, best neighbors ever! 

Once Andrea left, I continued unpacking boxes as quickly as I could so that I could be ready to unload the next round that Andy was bringing. Shortly after Andy brought another load, his brother arrived so that he could help Andy with some of the bigger items.

We unpacked all day and although we made a lot of progress, there was still a lot left to do. We were both exhausted and it felt SO good to finally rest at the end of the day. My feet and back were killing me, so I decided to test out our new soaker tub. This was one of the many features we were really excited about when we put an offer in on this house!

We had to be back at the old house the next morning since we hired movers to move the furniture that day. Bless their hearts, because our last place had so many steep staircases and they carried all of our heavy furniture like champs!

The rooms felt like they were starting to come together once the furniture arrived! The bedroom in our rental was so tiny, so this large master suite definitely feels like a luxury to us.

Around lunchtime, I took a quick break from moving / unpacking to make a dash to the grocery store so we'd have some food for the week. It felt SO good to do a little meal prep in our new kitchen!

Ever since we moved in, I've been maximizing our new kitchen and cooking all kinds of new things! It's been SO nice having a large center island to prep and prepare food! I've started sharing some of my daily eats over on my fitness Instagram -- be sure to check it out if you're into that sort of thing!

I also made it a priority to scoot over to the DMV last week to update my license with our new address since they aren't open on weekends and I just wanted to get it over with. Isn't the DMV one of the worst errands? It's right up there with running to the post office or the bank.

When's the last time you moved? 
Do you enjoy unpacking?
