The House

It's ENTIRELY painted. And I cannot WAIT to post some pictures of the house with color, but yesterday was so crazy-busy my camera never emerged from it's safe spot.

The day started with Mary Beth, my dad's girlfriend, coming over to help and watch kiddies while Ross and I went back and forth between the house with loads of stuff, checking on the painters. Ends up they were missing 3 colors that couldn't be matched.... WHAT?! So I ran around figuring that out while Ross continued to move garage junk and other non-boxed items, and Mary Beth held down the fort while sneakily packing and cleaning my ENTIRE kitchen! Then after work (oh did I mention my dad and Marybeth moved out here!?) my dad strolls on by with his Sci-fit truck, which is pretty much like a little U-Haul with some work-out equipment in it that he'd taken out so we had our own little moving truck. So with Mimi, Grandpa, and Grandpa's crazy big truck, we managed to have an incredibly productive pre-move move. We took the last huge load over at about 6, saw the final paint job- LOVED it, and then went to dinner at Coco's (it was close--- I never knew Coco's could taste so good... it's amazing what family and comfort food at the same time can do for you.) Crazy, busy, tiring, fun, fun day.

It's all feeling very real now. We'll be sleeping there Tuesday night. !!! Pictures soon.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is so exciting. Oooh, and fresh paint, and a whole blank slate of a new house to decorate. It is all too too wonderful. The first few times that you have to run around the entire house to find the phone while it rings, and you actually get winded, you will feel like you have moved into a mansion. :)

How exciting! I can't wait to see pictures. I'm sure that it's gorgeous. How nice to have great help from family when you need it. :) I'm so happy for you, Lillie. ;)

YEAH! I love getting settled in a new home.

That's also great that you didn't have to paint your own house! I recall many late nights painting our house. Can't wait to see photos!

Hey Lillie! How exciting for you guys...wondering if you need some help? I'll be just around the corner if you need anything. Painting the house before is sooo nice...we just did the main areas and thought we'd get to the bedrooms later...yeah, that hasn't worked out all that well. 3 down, still 2 to go and we've been here a while. I like your way better. Good luck and happy moving! Sounds like you're well on your way. We'd be happy to help with anything!

Can't wait to be neighbors again!

Good post. Happy about the paint and that it worked out. I look forward to seeing it in person in a few months.

Sigh. I AM happy for you Lil. Sounds like you had a hectic few days - we missed you greatly but are glad you took care of the monumental moving tasks. I can't wait to see the colors! (when did your Dad and MaryBeth move there?? how fun! are they close?)

Brooke said...

I feel soooo out to the loop! When did your Dad move out there? I need some serious updating. Sleeping there Tuesday? WOW! I had NO idea it would happen so fast. Can't wait to see more pics....and can't wait to pic your brain on all the decorating you will be doing. Honestly all I do in my free time is watch the HGTV channel and surf the San Diego real estate sites. I am seriously itching to get out there! 8 months....not that I am counting right?! Oh and I want to hear more about the similarities between Mila and Beau....I have to admit that I noticed something in the pic you took of her in Florida....couldn't tell if she just looked sooo "biesinger" to me with the cheeks or if she looked like Beau to me.
loving.

Happy sleepovering! If you need help we'll come right over too :) It snowed yesterday. It's 26 degrees. Feels like 19. I need to escape somewhere.

Missy said...

Ooh, this will be a fun night. It's always fun to wake up in a new home and think, "where am I, wait, I OWN this home. this is our home."

I'm so excited for you and am DYING to see photos of the paint and decor.

We are waiting. . . we are checking your blog constantly . . .

Could it be you are too busy to post? I hope you are not waiting for perfection before you show us the colors. If I don't see something soon, we will have to crash and invade.

Sarie said...

I second that. Come on, what are you so busy with? A house full of boxes and two kids to take care of???? Let's hurry up with those new house pictures.
