Moving day

Well, my moving day is almost here, and I'll be driving one of these tomorrow. I've never driven a moving van before, but it can't be that hard, right? LOL Thankfully I have two of Emily's friends to help me with the heavy stuff and with carrying all the boxes I've been packing up for months now. It's going to be wonderful to be moved into my own apartment, and I can't wait to start unpacking and settling in. :0)


In other news, yesterday Emily and I worked on getting the baby's room set up. She only has three more weeks until her due date, so little Ava could make an appearance any time now. At least she has a bed to sleep in when she gets home.


Emily wanted to hang up all the cards she got at her baby shower, so we strung some twine up and used mini clothes pins to attach the cards to the twine. We both love how it came out and it really brightens up the room. I'll be making a wall quilt with the baby's name on it for the other wall after I get moved and unpacked.

  23. Happy moving! I'm always told that I should pack up and move out, then move only what I want to keep back in and I'd be a lot more organized! lol Looks like you have some fun times ahead, after the effort of moving, of course! Hugs to you, your daughter, and the new little one coming soon!!!!
