All weekend we spend packing, moving, and unpacking. We are staying with a friend for a couple months while our house is being built, and it's definitely going to take some getting used to. It's been 6 years since we've had any roommates, and we've never had so many animals in such a small space. Our interim house has three adults, two large dogs, and two cats. And then the occasional extra dog and person when our roommates girlfriend comes over. I haven't been the most excited person to be staying in the place we're in and have definitely had a few emotional overload moments thinking about just how unpleasant some of the aspects of our current situation are, but I have to keep reminding myself it's only for a couple months.
I was feeling especially stressed saturday morning at the unknown of it all. We had taken a break from moving to go to one of our house design appointments and the whole experience put me in a better mood. We got to pick out our hardwoods, carpet, countertops, backspaces and bathroom floors. I love ever single decision we made and am SO excited to see it all come together! From light hardwoods to white painted cabinets, subway tile back splashes and glass tile accents, and awesome carpet . . . I love it all. It was exactly what I needed to excite me about the whole process again and remind me just how great the end result of this whole experience is going to be!
So while I try to stay awake at work (still definitely not used to our new bed or room) and try not to spend every waking minute on pinterest looking for home design ideas or ways to spruce up the bachelor pad we are living in for the next two months, I hope you all have a fabulous week!
