getting our move on…

see MORE

i was afraid something would get in the way–because that tends to be the case when we find a home we love on the hill, but… remember when i mentioned this place? well, we held our breath all week, waiting with a pen in hand to sign that lease… and sign that lease we did! thanks for crossing your fingers for us!
i feel like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders– but then again, i feel like it’s been replaced with the thought of packing up our current place in only a few days time with a baby on my hip and a bulldog who likes eating boxes. heaven help us. ;)
baby and bulldog are napping right now, so i’m off to pack up a box or two! enjoy your monday…

    Yay!!! So excited for you guys!! :)

  2. emily

    so happy for you guys. i am just an unemployed graduate if you'd like some help with packing/moving/eating/etc.

  3. Congratulations! We're moving too!!!!

    We have no baby but three dogs:
    Dog #1 will chew up every box in sight
    Dog #2 will try to stall the move by laying down on just about anything on the ground
    Dog #3 will pout in the corner because he loves his yard right now but will likely jump for joy the very second he sees the new yard!

    Cheers to moving!

  4. That's wonderful! I'm in the process of moving right now, too, and it's quite daunting, but worth saving the money by not hiring movers, I suppose. Although I wonder some days… :)

    Can't wait to see more photos of the place!

  34. tRiSh

  37. so exciting. :)

  38. Congrats!!! I'm so happy for you :)

  39. You are such a doll. I'm sorry I'm keeping you from packing though! You are so sweet. :) We've only "internet met" Carissa. We're involved in a online magazine project together, so we were planning on meeting up at some point. PS. please let me know if you ever need help packing..or baby watching while packing.

  40. Oh, moving. Horrifying yet hopeful.
    My husband & I just moved from Atlanta to Boston. Never laid eyes the place we would call home before packing up the Uhaul and driving thousands of miles.

  41. Yaaay! Congrats!! Moving can be so excruciating but it's so worth it to end up somewhere you love! Can't wait to see pics once you're all settled!! xoxo

  42. Congratulations!! So exciting! The post on your new place and this door looks amazing! Dressing up your new place is going to be so much fun!!

    Question: Where are your eye-glasses from? I need prescription glasses and just lost mine :( .. wondering where you got yours from! Would be of great help!

  47. oh my goodness how exciting :}

    love m.
    keep in touch.

  48. Kym

    That's so exciting! Congratulations. I actually have a question you might have some insight on. I know that you have lived in some very small apartments. With myself, my husband, dog, and baby- our 750sq ft space is stifling. How do you fit/organize for 3 people and a dog in such a small space? I consider myself an extreme organizer (OCD at times) but I still don't ever seem to have enough room! any suggestions?

  49. Yay you got it! :D Congratulations and good luck packing :D

  50. bables

    Seriously in the exact same boat right now.

  51. Meagan

    That is great news and good luck! :)

  52. Shelby

    Have you ever thought about putting recipes up on your blog? I was looking back through some of your old posts and you and husband make some scrumptious goodies :)Just a thought…

  53. Sini

    Great news! :) good luck with the moving and packing!

  54. Congratulations! I can't wait to see how you're gonna decorate the place. Good luck with the packing, the dog and the baby. Everything's gonna be just fine!

  55. Sarah

    Very exciting. I think you'll love renting a house before buying. It gives all the perks of a house, with all the perks of an apartment when things break lol we are doing the same right now. It kind of gears you up for when you are ready to eventually buy.

    – Sarah

  56. awesome!

  57. congrats! I can't wait to see what you do with the place

  58. congrats! I can't wait to see what you do with the place
