Two Months In

Chong and I are having our house warming party on Friday, July 4th so it’s been hectic trying to take care of everything. We are finally unpacked although not all our stuff has found its home yet. I don’t know why I always end up throwing out a lot of things only to turn around and buy more stuff.  No more shopping! I’m pretty much done getting things for the house.  Next items will be to build Chong’s man cave in the basement and get me a KitchenAid mixer, which may have to wait until next year.

So as promised, here are some pictures to show what has been happening for the past two months. Here’s a peek in the master closet. There are rods on the right side and left side of the walls that aren’t shown and a small ironing board that drops down.


This doesn’t do justice to how big the room actually is.


Our trip to Duluth. We love the cabin that we stayed in. It’s huge and right next to the lake.

And of course, you’ve got to go to Betty’s Pie when you’re in Duluth.  Cherry berry crunch, 5 layer chocolate, coconut cream and French blueberry (which was REALLY good). I made a French blueberry pie for Mother’s Day but didn’t take a picture.

And since charcoal was on sale at Home Depot, we decided to get 7 packs.  I hope that’s enough for summer!




Two Weeks In

What a busy two weeks it’s been.  We’re still not fully unpacked yet–everything is at a half unpacked status.  For example, the master closet has most of our clothes but we keep finding more boxes with clothes hiding around the house or garage.  I never knew how much clothes we had until it was all in one room.  I really love our master closet.  It’s a walk in closet and has a built in storage dresser.  I’ll upload some pictures later this week from my phone.  I didn’t take any pictures during the move because everything was crazy.

Chong’s waiting for me to use my new steam mop in the bathroom so I’ll update later.  Good night!

Welcome home!

What a weekend it’s been. I just have one word to sum everything up: hectic. Chong and I are finally fully moved in but are still not done unpacking. Is there such a thing as being completed done unpacking?

I wanted to thank my parents, family and friends who helped us moved. It only took 3 hours to get everything moved to our new house. I also wanted to thank our great realtor, Steve, who is awesome and very, very patient. And also Rachel from our mortgage company. She was great and answered all our questions and was also very patient. The seller, who is also a real estate agent, was quite impressed with how fast Rachel and her company worked that he is now going to refer his clients to them.
Like I said, it’s been a very hectic three days. Lots of cleaning, shopping, and organizing. We haven’t even gotten any rooms in the house fully organized yet. Everything is half or almost done. We just got new rugs today and will pick them up tomorrow so hopefully the living room will be ready. We still don’t have any internet yet so I’m blogging from my phone. I have to call my internet provider later tonight.
I’ll post up pictures when everything looks more presentable. I have hundreds of boxes and bags everywhere. Chong and I are p Continue reading
