All Settled In

As of Saturday, we are moved out of our apartment and into our new home. Thanks to the help of some awesome family members and friends that decided to spend their weekend loading up boxes and furniture instead of relaxing on the couch, we were able to successfully get moved in.
Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the movers in action because we were all unloading, organizing and cleaning like crazy people. We couldn't have made as much progress as we did without all the willing help...such a God send!
We started around 7:30am on Saturday morning and by 4:00pm Saturday afternoon, we were finished and we were saying our goodbyes to our family and friends.
Jason, myself and the boys all settled in on the couch and just took in the sight, smells and comfort of our new home. Even though we were exhausted, we still loved having a place of our own. After a few hours of resting, we decided to put together the nursery furniture. BAD IDEA.
We were too tired to think and read the directions...good thing we bought the insurance because some damage was done by using too long of a screw when hooking the legs into the dresser top. Unfortunately, we had to load up the dresser and return it back to Babies R Us and order a new one. Dropping the dresser off just a few hours after we picked up was a little awkward. We got back to the house after a depressing drive to the store and decided to just call it a night. Our bed NEVER felt so good! Haha...
Sunday morning, we got up and moving a little slower than normal. Around lunchtime we were feeling a little antsy and since the weather was pretty, we decided to put together the mower. Jason wanted to mow and I wanted to trim up some of the bushes. Seeing my husband mowing his grass with his new mower made the house feel so real.
We love having our own space, we love waking up in our new home and we love the fact that God has been so kind and gracious to our family!!
After moving 4 times in the past 4 years, it feels so good to say that we're now settled in and not going anywhere for 4 years!! Such an awesome feeling!
