Recent Pastimes

I realize my blog has been a bit lacking in the visual department lately. I haven't been giving my blog very much attention mostly because my spare time has been spent preparing to move. We have parents coming to stay with us in a little less than two weeks and want our house to be mostly ready to move so we can have a fun time when they are here instead of packing. Last week we painted over our striped wall which was a sad thing for me because I really liked the stripes and it made our apartment feel like home. All of the pictures are now off the wall and we took the curtains down today. It well be sad to leave all of our friends in Ann Arbor but as we take apart our house I am getting excited to move on to the next phase of life.

The different wall color is such a stark difference our house just isn't as cozy anymore. We are hoping all of our stuff fits on a 8x8x16 Pods container, it will be tight and I hope we don't have to leave anything behind.

That wall was awesome! Did you do that yourself? Good luck with the move & having parents over.

Oh, so sad!I had a striped wall in our family room and in our master bathroom in AZ & I loved them. When we have a house again I plan on putting stripes back up. That is so fun. I can hardly wait for you to vome out here! Happy packing.

I hate moving and all the work that goes with it, but right now it sounds so exciting to be done! Where exactly in CO are you going to be? Bren just did an externship in Aurora near Denver, he loved the hospital, my Mom said we should move there if it's close to you guys, then she and Lisa could come visit us together!
Good luck packing and have fun with your visitors!
