Moving In!!!!!

Hi Everyone.





I can hardly believe I am typing this but we have a move in date to the new house.  We will officially have the movers there on Thursday 9/21. 



It will be so nice to have a home again.  We have been through a lot with the contractor and the pitfalls of renovations over the past 3 1/2 months.

Our original promised move in date was going to be July 1st so my patience has been tested!  Just happy that we have a move in date.  We still have work to do to the house but with the garage up and the majority of the basement done,  I think we can move in and work on the house while living there.

I cannot wait to get my chippy decor unpacked and start to decorate our new cottage home.

I also have a surprise to share with you this weekend.  That post will be coming soon.

Have a great and wonderful new week.
Hugs,
Kris

  12. How wonderful- yay! I just love how you've cutened up the front of your home so much. Your neighbors have to be impressed already! When we remodeled in 1996 I enjoyed it but was definitely ready for it to be done after 4 months of living with sawdust, drywall dust, plastic sheeting and too many contractors coming and going! It's all a blur now but most of all I remember being thrilled with what had been accomplished and still am! Your'e going to love your new remodeled home!

Love your front yard and all the flowers and pots... love the black shutters.. it's all darling and fun and you so deserve to be settled in by Christmas! Hugs.. Marilyn

  36. So happy for your my Sweet Friend. You are such a tease....what is your announcement???? ;P
    I get weather alerts for Inverness, Alabama and Cook County, IL via my Cubbies tracker, and y'all have had tons of rain and storms this summer, so I'm sure that's what set you back!

  39. I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU, KRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My closing on my house took 5 long months and I seriously thought in that time I was going to have a nervous breakdown!! There's nothing like being able to settle in your own sweet home for the long haul, especially after being uprooted so many times in a short time! Looking forward to watching you feather your nest!
