This Is Why I Drink...Or Atleast At Airports

I had a crazy, busy, exhausting week. 

Here's the DL:

On Sunday night I dropped Eric off at the Airport

 kept Wyatt and Carson
hosted play group
 flew to Charlotte
 waited in Charlotte (plane was delayed due to maintenance on a prior flight)
Got to Columbus

checked out our new town
looked at houses
got lost...a LOT

went to the Columbus airport
waited (plane was delayed due to maintenance on a prior flight)
Landed in Charlotte
Hauled ass to my connecting flight (all the way across the airport)
Made it to my gate with 2 minutes left
waited (plane delayed due to maintenance on a prior flight)
waited some more
flight was cancelled
waited on a bus
drank at a bar by myself
rode on a bus back to Florence

woke up
ran around town trying to find train birthday party supplies
4 stores...
only Walmart had train whistles- go figure
made cupcake toppers
iced cupcakes
iced smash cake
picked up baloons
made it to the party
 went to Florence After Five
picked Eric up from the airport

Yes, it was a crazy, busy, exhausting week.

Good news though- Eric put an offer on a house and it was accepted!
Woo Hoo!

This is it. Small little farmish house. I think it needs shutters and a window box. Paint in the future. 

What would you change?

Hi Ho Hi Ho...

off to Ohio I go!

Well, I'm leaving for New Albany after playgroup. Even thought it's a
 short trip, hopefully we will find a house!

Growing up, I lived in 3 houses on the same street. crazy. I know. 
This move will be completely different. We can't just walk stuff down the street or throw it in the car without packing it

Send any packing (and unpacking) tips my way!

Speaking of unpacking, what room is the best room to decorate first?

Living Room?
Dining Room?

Of course I will be constantly changing things around but didn't know if a particular room would make it feel more "homey"

Here are a few "new house" inspiration pics:

The Beach and some REALLY BIG News!

Well, it's over. Or at least it will be in the morning. Eric and  I have to go home and everyone else gets to stay and play until Sunday or Monday.

Why are we leaving on a Saturday you ask?

Eric has to clean the boat, pack is clothes, get on a plane 
and fly to New Albany, Ohio. 

Why am I telling you where he is flying? 
(sorry so many questions ;))

Because he is flying to our new town.


Yep, we're moving.
And we're moving SOON.
Like a few weeks soon. 

If you know of anyone are are from the Columbus area, let me know! I would love to meet some Columbus bloggers

I am so glad we were able to spend a week at the beach before we 
move sooo far away from it. 

Here are a few pictures from this week:
(shame on me- I only brought out the camera once)
other pics are from the phone 

Actually, I brought my camera out twice. The girls wanted a lil' photoshoot:)

also, remember the photo special I have going on!

This afternoon I'm leaving for a week at the beach with my family. 10 people. immediate family. please pray for everyone's sanity!

Surprisingly, I think it will be cooler than it is here.

This is all of us MANY years ago:

I'll still be around...just not as much!
