Meet the Sullivans: Home Sweet Home!

Home Sweet Home!

I know it's been radio silence from me for a while, but not without good reason! We officially moved into our new home on Sunday, so as you can imagine, we've been very busy. The last time we moved it was just the two of us, a year after we married, so we had significantly less stuff. It was (and still IS) a big undertaking, especially with two cuties to pack and think and prepare for, but we're very lucky to have a lot of family to help us make it work.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in a share a little of this and that about our move...

We had our final walk through last Wednesday where they told us all about all of our new appliances and warranties etc.,  and then we got our keys in the afternoon! It was one of the most exciting days for us, only trumped by our wedding and the births of our children.

We got started right away unloading a few boxes. I started the long process of unpacking the kitchen and Keith and his brother installed a ceiling fan in the toy room. I came back the next two days for a few hours at a time to set up the kitchen. It took me a long time to sort through all the boxes and decide where I wanted to put everything. I wanted to make sure where I put things made sense, like having the coffee cups in the cabinet above the coffee maker, etc., but I'm sure I'll continue to move them around. I also gave a ton of things away, which feels amazing!

On Saturday our refrigerator and washer + dryer were delivered! I know I'm old now because I was so excited for our fridge to get here. Owen's favorite part of our new house is absolutely the ice maker and water dispenser in the refrigerator. He fills his glass / water bottle up no less than 10x a day!

The boys love their little toy room so much! They've actually surprised me a few times by heading in there together to play for a little while while we get other things done. We're still working on a storage system for the closet so we can contain all the toys a bit more, but like everything here, it is a work in progress.

Luke loves having a little table just his size and spends most of his time in the toy room "cooking" and putting his puppies in chairs. 

We still have our closets to unpack, but we've pretty much finished unpacking everything else.

Anyway, that's all from me for now!
