Packing Kind of Week

Hey There!

How was your Easter weekend? Our birthday/Easter weekend was a great one! I’ll be sure to share some pics from the weekend with you next week.

First off, Shay and I had some major technical issues and don’t have a new Bestie Breakdown episode for you today. Womp. Womp. Just when we start thinking we’ve gotten this podcast thing figured out, we mess it all up! But we’ll be back next Tuesday!

This week at my house has become a, “We-Must-Pack-Up-In-Every-Spare-Minute-We-Have” kind of week. If you’ve missed it, we’re finally doing a big home renovation in our home we moved into almost seven years ago. The crew started on the upstairs and we’ve all been living downstairs for the last six weeks, but this weekend we’re switching. All six of us are headed to live upstairs while the crew shifts to the kitchen, master bathroom, master bedroom, laundry room, guest bedroom, guest bathroom, and pantry. I’m pumped because it means we’re one step closer to the final product but also wondering HOW do six people have so much they’ve accumulated over the last seven years?

Anyway, I’m using every spare minute I have this week to put something in a box so I’m taking a little blog break. I’ll be back next week to share birthday stuff, some house updates, and life!

Hope you have the very best week! I’ll see you next Tuesday, friends!

    Erika, I’ve requested repeatedly that you will once again add me to your list so I will receive your posts via this email address as I had received them for years before you made changes. Now I no longer hear or see your posts. Will you PLEASE make the correction & add me to your list so I get your blog post in my email? Thank you very much!

    I would be the same way! Make sure to update us on instagram with plans and progress! I know it will be so hard to leave without the kitchen and downstairs, but will be SO worth it!
