Setting Up House

I headed up to Indy on Friday afternoon to join Adam in doing as much as we could to get the new house organized before he started work today.

We were both not feeling it by the time I got there, so we got some dinner and then did some comparison shopping around town for a few things we wanted to get for the house.  It was nice to just go to our home and relax with him a bit.

Then we hit the ground running on Saturday... we managed to get his son's room squared away as well as the kitchen... and we also got all the rest of the boxes opened and everything to the room they needed to go in.  By the time we headed out to dinner, we were pleased with all we had accomplished.

Sunday morning we knocked out as much as we could in our bedroom and bathroom before decided on a whim to drive to Cincinatti to go to IKEA.  It's less than a two-hour drive, and we ended up spending several hours wandering around.  We picked out some items (and daydreamed about getting a king bed when we get married in August) and headed back to the house.  Then we decided on another whim to go to Target at 9pm to get a few things we'd seen there the night before.

I continued working on a few things when we got home, and he assembled the IKEA shelf we got for the guest bath and then started working on the cabinet we got at Target for our bath room.

When I left this morning, the house was still in a bit of disarray... the office is not together at all, and we still have all the decor and pictures stacked in a corner waiting to be placed and hung.  And our couch won't be delivered til Saturday...

But we accomplished a ton and I realized that it really felt like our home... it was a lot of work, but it was also surprisngly fun to put together our home.

Oh, and to clean out even more stuff!  We had a pretty successful yard sale here in TN (thanks to our moms), and we've cleaned out even more to have another one in Indy!

I'm pooped, but I still managed to get most of my stuff organized where I'm living for a bit here in Nashville.  I still have a few more things to do before I feel settled here, but it's coming along.

Life is definitely sort of a whirlwind right now, but in a really good and crazy fun way.

Oh, and I'm getting back on the fit train tomorrow.  It's time to get my nutrition back in line and start working out again!!!

So fun! I love reading about home organization + getting settled (I know, I'm a nerd), esp. since I've kinda been in the same boat for the past month + a half. It is so fun to see it all come together ... and have an Ikea close enough to go on a whim. Post photos eventually!
