Settling In

This past week we’ve been settling in! We arrived Monday evening and unloaded the entire moving truck! Our furniture went to the rooms it belonged in and all the other stuff was put in the garage! We’ve quickly settled in and are starting to feel at home.

(All of these pictures were snapped early Tuesday morning when I really began the unpacking!)

Cluttered kitchen! This was the first room I conquered! Everything is now in its place and we’ve been using the kitchen all week!

Paxton’s nursery! It was a maze for a day or so! We’ve since rearranged and organized!

The master bedroom. It’s much smaller than our former master and the closet is about 1/4 the  size! We somehow managed to get all of our clothing into the closet after we both went through our clothes (resulting in a box full to go!)

The guest room/office! We’ve since made the bed and brought in more of John David’s video equipment! He’s working on this room!

The garage! Oh me, oh my!!! We slowly have gone through the stuff in the garage, putting most of it in places throughout the house, organizing some in the garage and have a large pile of stuff to go!

I’ll be sharing the rooms of our new home this week and giving you the grand tour!

  1. Oh, wow. Such a wonderfully warm home. I've been meaning to tell you that I love the simplicity of your home. I am striving for my own touches of simple and warm, but my husband loves to collect many things, and keep all the papers which come in the mail!
    Regardless, I've managed to reduce our clothes to those we love, which resulted in two big boxes and one big black garbage bag gone.
    I am quite jealous of your ability to get things together! We still have our spare room cluttered and senselessly disorganized! Most days, I just dream of a dumpster truck coming up to the window and chucking all out! I would miss some things tho.

    I love your hard wood flooring!

  2. Yay! Can't wait to see the pictures. That kitchen looks nice too. I really need to start going through stuff and getting rid of it. Seems like this move was pretty easy for you.

  3. Thank you! I strive for simplicity, I've found the less we own, the easier it is to maintain and clean! Isn't it great to free up space in your room and only have the clothes you love? I've found having less clothes actually makes it easier to pick out what I'm wearing too!

    And I don't have everything together but I do love organizing so it actually is fun to me! (Does that make me weird?) 🙂

    1. It is very wonderful to give things away, now if I can just convince my husband to get rid of things, we might be able to see the floor in our spare room which is really just storage unit. I would love for it to be functional, and have space to sew!!!!

  4. Wow! I moved 11 months ago and I'm not nearly as organized! What's worse is when we moved, we came from a 2 bedroom 1 bath house, into a 5 bedroom 2 bath house with a BASEMENT. How on earth is it that we're STILL cluttered? (I donated a lot of stuff pre-move and post-move).

    1. Getting rid of a bunch of useless stuff has really helped! I must admit that not everything we own is in the condo, my husbands tools, fishing gear, hunting gear, camping gear & childhood toys went back to his parents house…so basically that's like having a mini storage unit! If we had that stuff to deal with our house would be extremely cluttered (and I'd be a little crazy too!)

      It is amazing how much stuff we fit into small spaces! Our first apartment was 572 square feet, when we moved from there we filled up a 1,200 square foot apartment…I was utterly amazed!!
