We moved into our house the weekend of July 4th. Chris and a buddy worked until the wee hours that Friday night to get most of the wood floor done on the main level so we could move furniture over. Saturday morning, the girls and I headed out to Virginia for the day- pregnant women and small children are best out of state during a move, apparently. My college girlfriends were in the area for the weekend so it just worked out well to spend the day away.
Second Floor North reunited. =)

We came home that evening, ate chinese take-out amongst a hundred boxes in the living room and spent our first night here.
We woke up Sunday morning to find someone was a little disoriented by the move. (She did have the presence of mind to bring water with her for her hallway camp out.)

Church on the 4th.

Sunday night, C put the last board in the floor...

...and was mighty glad to be done with his marathon installation.

That evening, we had our first house we put a temporary door on one bathroom and my college roomie slept on Anna's bunk while the girls slept-toe to-toe on the bottom. A week later we had the pleasure of hosting the Kirklins from Ohio. They got to have the guest bedroom, with a door even. The day they left, we had C's bud from college stay the night. And then we realized we were crazy and haven't had any overnight guests since.
These are pics from the Kirklins' visit.
Making coffee.

Jason and Chris installing the microwave. Nice to have some method of cooking since our stove didn't work that's a good thing the Kirklins are really good friends.

The Simmons, from Philly days, were visiting family nearby so we all met up that Saturday for a rousing game of croquet and a walk around the Annapolis harbor.

"Find your toes..." Or your nose.

Thanks, Kirklins for being the most understanding guests ever. Next time, we'll have it together.


  1. Yeah, you're certifiable.

    Are you kidding me?!? You MORE than have it together! I can't imagine the craziness that has been your life the past few weeks. Way to plunge head first into the fun without letting life's stress get the better of you. You amaze me.

  2. yes! I made it on the blog! :) too bad I look like my swimsuit is falling off... anyway, now I don't feel like such a stalker.

    beautiful house mis :) I love the colors you chose

  3. Your house looks great! Can't wait to see more pictures. :)

    You are pretty cute, mama! That little girl is going to be here so soon!
