Five Years Ago // Happy Friday

So if you followed my posts on Monday and Wednesday then you know that we are moving! We decided to sell our house (took 12 hours - what?!) and we found our house 12 hours later! We are so excited to move and just ready to go (although I should say that the house isn't completely packed so we aren't really ready but we are ready....if you get what I mean!). 

But that made me want to look back to when we moved into this house five years ago. I was 21 weeks pregnant so I didn't do a ton of heavy lifting and to be perfectly honest I probably won't be doing any heavy lifting this time since I had that knee surgery and I'm not back to full strength. But that's okay since we decided to hire movers to move the big stuff - we have a lot more furniture than we did when we moved from the apartment. 

So I went back into my picture files and found these gems from us packing and getting ready to move five years ago. 






I gotta say that we have a LOT more now than we did before. We also have two kids that we definitely didn't have before. Stella wasn't that hard to move whereas now we have had to explain to our 4-year-old who didn't want to move that we would be taking her toys with us, we were just leaving the house behind.

So it's taking a long time to get things packed, not to mention a couple vacations and just life. So I have definitely started packing. We actually have an entire storage unit with a bunch of stuff we stored - mostly baby kids and things we don't need right now. And I have started packing as much as I can right now. So half of my kitchen is packed - no baking or slower cooker meals for us. We have all our books packed - not the kids's though because I would be lost during the day without them! In fact I haven't even touched the kids's rooms. Those rooms wouldn't be dealt with until the week of which is my attempt to keep their lives as normal as possible for a little while, plus they need something to do doing the day. But little by little I am getting things packed. Definitely don't go into the dining room which is where we have everything stored up and taking over.

But it's fun and exciting and we are definitely ready for the next adventure. We love the house we bought and just can't wait to get into it. But we have another month until we close and move so we have to hold on a little longer.  Good thing we are so busy and that month is going to fly by which is why I'm packing a little bit each day right now.

Okay enough rambling about that. I just thought it was fun to look back at some pictures from packing up the apartment.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
