bits and pieces of my week.

{pretty}


Pretty is finally having this man back with us, after 8 days of business travel {pretty darn awesome}.  He surprised us by coming home a day early.  We're missable, I guess.

{happy}
Happy is mini-golf with the girls, after dinner and shopping.  Elyssa the teenager has quite the social life with friends, so it's super nice when we can steal her away for ourselves.

{funny}






Funny is an impromptu water fight amongst siblings, especially when it draws attention from the little neighbor girl who has to run over to see what all the commotion is about.

{real}




Real is only 4 {holy cow!} more nights left in this house, until it's onward to 18 nights in various hotel rooms en route to Pittsburgh.  Real is deciding what to pack for the minivan and what to leave for the movers to pack in the moving van.  I've decided that one suitcase is simply not enough.  Nope.  I'm most certainly going to need another small duffel at least.

I'm getting excited!  A two week vacation is an absolutely perfect transition from the old to the new.  And after 2.5 weeks on the road, our new home is going to feel wonderful, when we finally move in and unpack our belongings.

  1. Love your pictures - especially those first ones. That feeling that Dad is home is just the BEST. Oh, and your house for sale photos have given me allot of inspiration today. We are going to be building a house soon and putting ours on the market but much is left to be done still. I love those before and after photos of clearing out the clutter especially. Our little house will need lots of that before it is picture ready. :)

    1. Congrats on building a new house! How exciting! Yes, by far the clearing out of the clutter is the least fun job when moving. But it is instant gratification to see how clean things looks automatically. And I'm all about that instant gratification! :)
      You can also cheat too, for pictures! Just put things out in the hallway so you can snap photos and then put them back.
