We're IN!!!!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to have a home. :)

Yes, the weekend was long and arduous and full of very little sleep and a few terse words... but its (mostly) done and very homey.

Friday night we made three trips, and got the bed, Tallman's dresser, chairs, and the dining room in, along with a variety of odds and ends.
This is what it looked like after the first night... full of stuff, but less than liveable (though we did spend the first night in the apartment!)
 (funny story: I went to make Tallman eggs Saturday morning for breakfast because I knew we didn't have much else, and I knew he needed food-- and while we did have eggs, butter, a frying pan and a spatula... we did not have plates.. or even more crucially FORKS! or even SPOONS! oops! no eggs for Tallman!)

After Saturday (two trips, once to parents house and got the couch, TV's rug, TV stands, my dresser, more kitchen stuff, and more odds and ends) the house looked much more normal.

This is what it looked like Saturday night, and continues to look like today :p
On Sunday we rested... and by rested I mean moved in our clothes, hung pictures with our favorite interior designer, went on an epic grocery store run, made food, hung out with the comcast guyand generally made things more organized so we could go about our week without going crazy.

That was our weekend, in a nutshell... I'm exhausted... and there is still so much to do! Our bedroom doesn't feel cozy yet, our dining room still has boxes, our second bedroom/closet/mancave is a disaster, and we don't have a colander, I need to slip cover the couch, the bathroom is a riot of beauty products (sorrynotsorry Tallman!) and we're still adjusting to living in a new place... but man is it fun and pretty.
Stay tuned for the fun things we do about the house as we get settled in!
