It's about time

We've been in our new house for 4 months.
And I haven't done one house post.
Not one.
I'd say it's about that time.
Wouldn't you?

Now. Keep in mind it is a
WORK in PROGRESS.
I know everyone says that.
But ours really is.

This is our very first house.
So we had to buy lots of stuff.
Like trash cans, lawn tools, and caulk.
Cause that's what homeowners buy.

And there is still not one thing on the walls.
Because I have a plan.
And eventually it will all come together.
Hopefully.

But before I dive right into the house posts,
I have to show you my 3 favorite housewarming "gifts"
we received the week we moved in:

1. Love notes.
So, our dear sweet friends in RI helped Mr. Ruby
pack, haul, and load everything we owned into a moving truck.
Why?
Because I was already in KS...student teaching.
And when we unpacked, I found little notes from our besties.
Everywhere.
In inconspicuous places.
Like behind picture frames.



2. The perfect card.
I'd say it is pretty fitting,
don't you agree?



3. A diagram of our street.
Yep. The day we moved in,
we heard a knock at the door.
It was our retired neighbor, Gary.
He decided to draw a diagram of our street
so we would know everyone's names (including dogs).
Wish I was retired so I could draw diagrams.
Thanks, Gary!



More house posts to come...

Hi! I just stumbled across your blog today, and it's adorable! I love your theme design...so fun. I'm a teacher as well, and I have a blog of my own...I'd love for you to stop by and check it out!

You are lucky to have friends leave you sweet notes in your new house...we had friends do sort of the same thing for us, but it wasn't quite so sweet. They lived in the house before us, and they left little notes with all the random junk & trash that they left around the house for us. Lovely right?!
