You asked for it:

Our old living room, the morning of the move. Please disregard the porn on the coffee table. Someone thought that it would be funny.



My babies. The first thing I moved into the new place (I DID mention the built in shoe rack, right?



The new living room! Sans porn!


New kitchen (and Adam)



New bedroom


And just to prove to you I am not proud...here is the spare bedroom aka the Den of Sin. I don't even KNOW what is in half these boxes. We have unpacked everything we use on a daily basis (all the kitchen and bathroom stuff, all of our clothes, all the furntiure and artwork and frames). Yet still we have this "collection" of unpacked items. The pile of clothes in the middle is a laundry basket that started out as "Let's put the clothes we want to get rid of in here for now" and quickly morphed into Towering Inferno of Cast-Offs.


We have our work cut out for us this weekend. I promise to take an "After" picture so you are not all worrying that I got lost in the abyss trying to unpack it.

So, we haven't hung anything on the walls yet, and I don't even know where the accent rugs are...I assume somewhere in the Den of Sin. We still are in the process of finding a new comforter set, and new bathrom accesories and lots of other things one wants to buy when one moves. But as far as settling in is concerned, I have to say so far so good.

Just be careful that the Den of Sin doesn't turn into the Pit of Hell like our basement did. What was supposed to be our entertainment room and PJ's "boy sports area" quickly turned into an area to dump everything that we didn't know where to put or what to do with. We still haven't unpacked boxes from our move last July. I'm not proud. We're buying a cabinet and bins this weekend to correct this issue. Let PJ and I be an example to you of "What NOT to do".
