Moving (Long post)

Let me start out by saying that the Halloween swap post has an update. If you signed up or thinkin of joining us please read it!

I don't think that I mentioned before but we are moving. Again. We are staying in the same apartment complex but moving into a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. First of all, we absolutely love where we live. The apartments are HUGE. It's so quite & a very small complex. The manager is a total sweetheart & the price is not bad at all.

When we found out that they had 3 bedroom units we asked to be put on the waiting list right away. See, there are only four 3 bedroom units in the whole complex. We thought it would take awhile to get into them as it's hard to get in this complex because they are so nice & big. We were put on the list on a Thursday & Monday morning the manager called Jaxson at work to tell us our 3 bedroom would be ready in about 3 weeks. We were both in total shock. God truly had his hand in this.

We got the see the apartment today and OMG! It is HUGE & beautiful! I could not get over how nice it is. And they are still working on it. We are getting brand new carpet in every room but the kids room's because it's not even a year old in those rooms. Ceramic title, not that sticky cheap crap. A new stove & ice box. The light fixtures & ceiling fans are new & beautiful! Thank you Jesus for such a blessing! The best part about all of this is we are gaining a whole other bedroom & bathroom. Although, the apartment we have now is a one & a half bath. A jack & jill.

She also told us that we can start to move in sometime next week! YAY!! I *hate* moving but I am so thrilled about this new place. And it's pretty much across the hall & down some. Not far away at all. I told Jaxson that I would love to move one room at a time & unpack it as we get it into the new house. I think it will be far easier & a lot more organized that way.

We are having a garage sell soon as well & moving I think will help us get ready for that a lot easier too. We were planning on doing it in Sept. Still hope to do it be the end of that month as well.

I am so stoked about decorating Layla's nursery!! Her bedding it black & white toile with touches of pink. And I am going to stick with that for the most part but I am already getting it ready for the next stage. As soon as her bumper pad comes down (about 2-3 months) her room will be done in black & hot pink with zebra. Im just going to make a bedskirt & sell her other bedding then. I have found the cutest stuff & started making things already. Plus I have a ton of ideas of other things. Ryker never had his own nursery because he shared a room with me until he was almost 3 so I am going all out!!

I am sure you are tired of hearing me ramble about moving & decorating so on that note I am out! *smoochies* I made this bib for Layla last night! I thought it turned out cute.
