New House Progress

We have had the new house since Sunday evening.  Already, so much has been done.  Bradley took the week off, and my mom came up Monday and Tuesday.  She and I were finally able to get the awful “bears in the forest” border down in the second bathroom.  She got the living room, kitchen, dining room, 2 spare bedrooms (the cheery blue is my office!), laundry room, 1/2 bath, and 2nd bathroom painted.  She is a machine!

Bradley’s parents have also been coming over in the evenings to help out.  His mom has been shampooing all or our carpets! Everything is looking wonderful.  He and his dad put up crown molding in the dining room and have fixed many “minor things” around the house.  Thankfully, his dad is super handy and we played musical light fixtures.  I think the only ones that we did not swap or change out were the living room and kitchen!

My dad also came up last night, and all “the guys” were moving furniture today.  I can’t wait to see what everything looks like when I get home today.  There will still be a load or two of boxed stuff to move from the apartment, but Bradley and I can do that tomorrow!  Thankfully, we are able to take our time with the move, because we have the apartment through the end of the month.  It is awesome that we were able to get the painting and cleaning done before there was any furniture to work around!

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
