Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Moving Day Has Come And Gone...

Hi, all!

Sorry for the silence this week, but I'm back again with something to whoop about!  Good thing, too, since it's Friday and time for us to get our whoop whoop on, right?  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Well, this was moving week, and we are finally sleeping in our new home!  Tuesday dawned bright and early (ok, well it was actually rainy but it felt bright!) and I got something I've been wishing for for years...


I got minions!!!

And after a full day of moving stuff out of one house and into another, I did have a bed set up and ready to sleep in...


...but the rest of the house was a hot mess!


The living room was a repository for rugs we hadn't laid out yet...


The family room was set up, sort of, but we weren't really happy with it.


We decided we didn't like the piano facing this way, but we were too tired to move it.  The dining room was full of chairs and tables and miscellaneous stuff.


And the kitchen? Well, you can see just what a hot mess it was!


Now let me introduce you to my favorite minion - my daughter Nancy!  She came over on Wednesday determined to whip my place into shape, and she did a great job!  We moved the piano as you can see, and I like it much better this way...


We moved the family room around, took out some things and laid the rug down.  It's so nice and cozy now!


We got the breakfast nook pulled together, although I still need to do some work in here...


These pieces will go in the foyer, but I really need to do something to make it a little more interesting.  


We also set up the dining room on Wednesday...



...and I made some final tweaks to the bedroom before we went to bed.  Whew!  Long day, but a lot accomplished - although the kitchen was still a hot mess!!

Thursday Nancy came over again, and we jumped right into the kitchen...


...and now it's great!  I even cooked supper in here Thursday night, which hasn't happened for a while.  It felt good to be back in the kitchen!



Nancy and I also moved these bookcases up to my quilt studio.  They came out of my grandfather's law office, so there's a lot of sentimental value to them.  Still, I should probably give them a coat of paint!


After Nancy went home, I found a great place to stash the suitcases, above the closet organizer shelves!


I also decided to move the dining room around a little bit, and I think this layout looks much better and more open.  I'll be changing the light fixture to something a little more vintage looking soon!

So that's a quick tour around the first floor of our new house - hopefully by next week I'll have pictures of the upstairs in a similar state!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!

What's making you whoop it up this week?


What's making you do a little happy dance?

Share! We want to dance right along with you,

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until midnight Sunday.

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  2. Congratulations on your new home, May it bring you health, happiness and success. It looks wonderful, my husband would love the piano, his current one is electronic, we had to part with the old family upright unfortunately. You look super organised for having just moved in, hurray for daughters!

  6. Wow, looks great now! Wonderful of Nancy to step in--it always helps to have a second female opinion. Leave the bookshelves and call them shabby chic. I love the excitement of a new home!!!

  10. you got a lot done. I've known some that are still living out of boxes and have nothing organized months after a move - I wouldn't be able to live like that and would be like you - organizing and get it livable immediately
