Moved in!

Ok so it only took 1 week. We started officially unpacking on Monday and I am as of right now DONE! woohoooo!  I even cleaned!

My parents are minutes away, maybe I should always have them come over right after I move in :) it seems to be motivation enough.

I even bathed BOTH dogs! now it’s time to sit back and relax. Hubs is setting up the fire pit. Now I just need chairs to sit around it. Looking for a cheap but nice find on that one.

There will be more to come soon, especially pictures of the new house! I’m much more impressed by CO Springs than Columbus. Let me tell ya, it’s a different world up here. A much nicer world.

Finally some time..

So we arrived in Colorado last week, as I already said. What a trip that was! 2 days of driving with a 2 year old, a 3 year old, and a 4 month old! WOW!

We brought E’s sister, brother, and sister in law with us to help with the move (that’s where the kids came from, we didn’t go on a kid collecting spree!)

The next day, after taking everything off the trailer and unpacking 1/4 of the kitchen we went on spring break to Breckenridge. I have to say I’m in love with that town! It’s very cute and quaint.

But we’re back to unpacking. So much to do! The goal is to get done before Sunday when my parents arrive. I have some cool things we’re working on so I can’t wait to show you! Once things die down it will be a little easier. I have 1 room done…5 more to go!!!

I am alive! I promise!

We made it Colorado. We're safe and sound,yet our house is still in boxes. We are in Breckenridge for a ski trip with the inlaws until Sunday. Then it's back to work. Most of the time this trip is a destressing period, other times it adds to the stress.

Vacation with my family, much different. We only had 4-5 people most times, this trip we have 10 adults, 2 toddlers, 1 infant, 2 dogs...and a mother in law who does NOT like dogs.

It is an interesting adventure, lets put it that way.

I can't wait to get back and get things put together.

Almost there

I am writing from my bedroom floor. We have nothing left in the house, we leave tomorrow morning, bright and early :) I’m giddy! Part I of a full DITY under way here in GA.

Now a 4 day drive :(. I still need to pick up the dogs, they are happily nestled in with my mother in TX. I miss them,  but I have a 2 year old niece keeping me company and busy!

Things I will miss about GA:

1. Marco’s pizza---yumo!

2. The beautiful victory drive gate of Ft. Benning

3. Our sweet neighbor who always helps us.

4. The countless nights spent at Smokey bones and Buffalo Wild Wings with friends

5. All the friends we’ve made here that are now scatter across the globe!

6. my first little house

7. Magnolia trees

8. Being walking distance from the park

9. fireplaces in every room

but oh the things I’m looking forward to!

Packing Break

We’re day1 into our first PCS…well I should say the Hubsy is day 1 into it. I started two weeks ago by packing everything we left in TX.

We’re doing a DITY (Do it yourself) and I really hope this is the last time we choose to go this route. My house is in shambles and I’m starting to loose patience with the half packed boxes sitting everywhere.

BTW 2 day old Rangers sleep….ALOT. He’s asleep again. Our 2 year old niece goes down for a nap at 1:30, he goes down at 2. Grrr…patience is a virtue (my new mantra)

And last but not least some new pictures~~~


Alpha Company E is the 5th from the left (to the right of the tall guy) kinda looking at me.
