…finding a house!
I am happy to report that we officially have a house for the next year! It’s in an older area of town…Noah’s always loved the houses there, and I figure that if we’re building next year, he’s never going to have an opportunity to live there again, so why not? Plus, this puts us really centrally located between Emmie’s school, Noah’s job, and our church (and it’s convenient to lots of places in town). The house is a little older but has been completely renovated. It has a playroom (can I get an amen?) and a big backyard for Emma Ramey and Hardy. Really exactly what we need right now!
We should be moving the last week of February, and officially living there by the 1st of March. We’re all excited!
…updating our bedding.
Ok, y’all. Our bedding is sad. We still have the same set we’ve had for years, and it is literally falling apart. The comforter had an unfortunate incident with the washer a few weeks ago and there is stuffing falling out of the sides. It looks pathetic.
So, I told Noah that he’s buying me new bedding for Valentine’s Day. 🙂 I’m going to be making some of the pillows, but I leave the bigger stuff to the professionals. Here are a few pieces I’ve already ordered or will be ordering this weekend!
I can’t wait to see how everything comes together!
We’re also converting Emma Ramey’s bed to a “big girl” bed when we move, so I’ve been planning that too. Her only request was that some of it was green, so that I can handle. Here’s what I’ve got so far on that!
Several other girls on Instagram said they had similar deals in their area, so you might want to check your local store if you’re an avocado lover like me!
…feeling the burn.
I say this every time…once I get in the habit of working out, I love it. But only once I get in the habit; otherwise, I absolutely dread it.
Pure Barre kicks my booty in the best way possible, but I haven’t really been seeing the weight loss I’d like. So once this month is up, I think I might switch to just going once a week, and incorporating more cardio to replace it. We have to join a gym instead of having one on site after this month (the ultimate in first world problems…), but we’ve been scouting out and there are several nice and relatively inexpensive ones near our new house. I need to get back into a few classes too…once again, if I make myself go, I actually really like them!
This little area of the world is so, so much fun during Mardi Gras! The celebrations around here are really fun and family-friendly. We’re headed to a parade tomorrow with friends, and we’ve thought about going to one of the daytime parades in New Orleans in the next couple of weeks.
Not to mention King Cake. Oh, how I love king cake. Which is why it’s necessary for me to get in that cardio mentioned in the previous point. 🙂
Happy weekend friends!!
