It’s official

The porta potty has left the building.  
Or should I say “the lot” as my kids still call our new home.  
We are in!  Totally moved.  
Not even close to settled.  Boxes not even close to unpacked.  
But we are in.
Thank you to all of you who mentioned you were thinking of us.  
Thank you to my parents and extra strength Tylenol for getting me through the week.
Thank you Kenny for letting us build this house.
And for still liking me at the end of it all.  You still sorta like me, right?
And thank you for the farmhouse sinks.
And for the craft room.
You don’t need to buy me a Christmas or Birthday present EVER again.  
Except maybe a rug or two for in front of the farmhouse sinks.  
And one for the craft room.  
I’ll be back next week with more to share.  
And pics that are a lot more fun than a blue porta potty.

xoxo, Erin

  1. Congrats! Now a few words of advice from someone who moved into a brand new huge home from out of state with a 6 mo. old and a 4 year old on November 15th….take your time and do not stress over getting ready for the holidays….it will have memories all it’s own just because of where you are in your life….just be sure Santa has the new address! :) Hugs, Sandy

  2. Hi Erin,

  3. Dear Erin and family,
    I want to wish you every happiness in your new home. I have been following your blog for years and my three children are very similar ages. I know you will all love the new house and just imagine one year from now……how settled in you will be and I’m sure the last few months will be a dim distant memory. So happy for you.
    Can’t wait to see the pics.

    All the best,
    Kim from Australia x

  4. Congratulations Erin to you all! How exciting {and exhausting}!!! I was thinking of you all last week. Can’t wait to see more pictures of everything and hear how the move went. Enjoy your weekend :) ~gina

  5. Reading your blog is right up there (for me) with reading a Gemma Halliday book, you always make me smile and sometimes laugh out loud. Can not wait for your days to slow down just a wee more so we can enjoy them with you.

    Your moving reminds me of our military moves it was always so much fun when everything was organized in boxes and I got to unpack and make new homes for it all. I miss those days.
