I'm alive! And wearing a vest!
Bet you didn't see that coming.
You know that TLC show "Say Yes to the Dress"? I'm thinking I'm going to pitch a show called "Say Yes to the Vest" and we will help people find vests that speak to them and there would also probably be some hugging. And cake. Because vests are really good at hiding cake belly.

In this vest's case, hiding my extra cake means just making me look kind of big all over. It happens. The important part here is that I am wearing clothes that are not covered in moving dust. BIG steps.
We are all moved in! And we are even mostly out of boxes. Right now my big hurdle is hanging all of our pictures and art. We have a lot more than I was thinking and I can't seem to force myself to put any of it up. I did manage to hang our giant wave print from Ikea and another large painting over the couch but any time I look at the smaller stuff I remember some other urgent and pressing thing that requires my attention. I might just have to have Aaron handle it.

We are really and truly in LOVE with our house though. We both keep commenting on how we like it so much more than we ever thought we would when we first walked through it. There's still a lot to be done as our bank account replenishes (painting kitchen cabinets, new appliances, the backyard, etc.) but we're kind of looking forward to it. Our long-term labor of love.
