We're in....

As a few of my guy friends like to say whenever they correctly do something (find the write channel, get the internet to work, get the car started, you name it, they'll say it); well, WE'RE IN! (and no..... get your mind out of the gutter right now missy).  Ladies and gentlemen, I have moved once again.  It is an amazing disaster, boxes everywhere, nothing unpacked, and I still have stuff (just clothing) at the old place.  Long story short, I have to pay rent at old and new house in July, so I figured I'll worry about all my hanging clothes later after I figure out where in the world I'm going to put them in my new teeny closet!!! EEEK. 

The parents came down to help me move and as it turned out the 3 of us moved everything. I thought I was going to have some manly help, but apparently a trip to Figure 8 took precedence. Needless to say all that beer I was going to buy them for saying they would help me, well, I think they now owe ME! But with only a few minor confrontations between everyone, we're both in (me and Peaches the roomie).  I came up and stayed with my parents for the night, though not planned. I wanted to spend the night in my new house, first night, but my parents are staying at one of my friends' home who are out of town, and when I fell asleep on the sofa, they didn't wake me. Hahaha, imagine the confusion :)  So as I'm sitting here waiting for my home-cooked breakfast (suhweeeeet), I figured I'd say hey to everyone.  

I think I'm going to go home and take 'before' pictures of boxes everywhere so I can give you the fabulous 'after' pictures.  I can't wait for it to be all set up and good and ready to go.  We're hoping to have everything together for a something the weekend after the 4th.  Shall it be a stock the bar party, cookout, straight up housewarming, who knows!!  

I need ADVICE on something...
         Peaches the roommate has these fabulous chairs for the back deck and a table that goes with them. This table however used to have a glass top.  This glass is now no longer with us, but getting a big piece of glass cut I know you all know is NOT cheap.  Has anyone found an out of the ordinary type of place to go, a good way to find cheap glass. I don't want it scratched or poorly cut or anything, but ya know what I mean???  Or any fabulous super cheap ideas to remedy the situation short term until we can afford the new glass?  

I'm thinking I'll be writing frequently, as I see myself getting bored, tired, exhausted with unpacking and will need some breaks :)

Hope everyone's summer is going fabulously!!!!!!!!!!!

Greatest thing EVER

I got the keys early to the Bungalow and ran by today to open the doors, let it air out a bit, see how much I want to clean BEFORE we move in, even after the cleaners have been there, check light bulbs, water the (few) plants in the yard and mostly just daydream about being in and settled. I sat down for a mini-break on the porch swing and decided to give my father a call and have a daddy-daughter chat. We talked for about 20 minutes when I couldn't help but say "Papa, whenever I get off the phone with you, I'm just not sure if I'll be leaving this porch swing!". I was so absolutely content, sitting there swinging, there was a breeze, birds chirping, no one around, AMAZING. So to all you out there, if you can't get ahold of me, you will probably find me here...

Now, who can tell me where I can find some fabulous porch swing pillows?!

In honor of the first day of summer

So now that I've had some time to catch up and read some of y'alls blogs, I came upon this video from Ro at Bare With Me... As I told her, maybe I shouldn't have seen that the first day of summer... BUT, as I wiped my tears away I knew I just had to share it

xoxoxox to all you teachers out there!!!

Schoooooool's out FOR the summer!!!

Hello everyone,

I am writing to you from the comfort of my bed; at 9:30AM; on a Friday. Hello summer :)

Though I am super excited to have some down time, time to pack, time to work on a tan, time to sleep... I am not super excited about having no set source of income lined up for the summer months yet. I have tried, I have applied, I have almost begged a few times. I am supposed to be taking a bunch of workshops this summer, I'll continue having classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and because of all these prior commitments, go figure when I walk up with a list of times and days I can NOT work, they aren't exactly jumping for joy to hire me. I know that something will work out, I've gotten a few calls about babysitting, and a potential part-time weekend only job (which blows, but beggars can't be choosers). So I think if I am super good, I can make it through the next two months. FINGERS CROSSED.

15 days until we move to The Bungalow!!!!

Movin on up!

Actually, I'm moving down the street! Yep, that's right, I'm moving AGAIN. Y'all that have known me for awhile must think something is severely wrong with me. BUT, one of my new most favorite friends, Peaches (met through Pav) and I found our little bungalow and are super excited to be moving. There is a whole load of high-drama surrounding my current roommate and landlord, but in hopes of me becoming a more optimistic and positive person, I'll focus on the fun. This will be for the best because I'm moving WITH someone into a new house that neither of us have lived in before. It's a clean slate and I can put just as much of me into it. I can truly feel like it is my home and I am living there with someone that I chose.

The house is a teeny little thing, with a great front yard that has 2 huge oak trees; I'm feeling a hammock. It's in an area I would love to always live in, 5 points. It's quiet. There is a fun park just at the end of the street with a creek and everything running through it. I have friends that live nearby. We have a working fireplace, a fun back deck, hardwood floors. OH I'm so excited. Almost doesn't seem real yet though. AND crazy thing is, I haven't started packing and we move June 27th!!!! EEEK!!! Anyone care to come help?

But you can just call us

Bungalow Bunnies ;)
