1: Moving day! While unloading the moving truck, a guy from the building company stopped by and dropped off this gift from the president of the company. It's a hand-painted "take-out menu" box with a large coupon book and some local menus.
2: Friends from church live down the road from us, and they stopped by with cookies! They currently have a Japanese exchange student, so, the message on the bottom is from her.
3: Jarrod's sister and grandmother were over for dinner, and a good portion of our night was spent joking about the legs on this boy. Chunk, chunk, and more chunk!
4: I worked on digging all of my clothing out of boxes this day. Jarrod also willingly gave up all but 1/4 of the closet, so, don't even get on me about how much space I'm using. Haha!
5: Ethan and I spent some time out on the porch this morning while Gabe napped. Time outdoors was very, very rare at the apartments, and being able to just go out one door to get outside was something I was very much looking forward to.
6: I started to dig out some decorations this day. I don't want to just start putting random holes in the walls, but I'm so overwhelmed at the thought of blank canvases and my current home decor sitting around in boxes. I'm not sure what I want where. I ended up hanging two things. Woohoo! :)
7: We had to purchase a couple of appliances: a washer, dryer and refrigerator were the big ones. We ended up buying a used dryer from a good friend who was selling hers for a good price, so, we only had to buy a washer and fridge brand new. Both arrived this day. Hooray for being able to do wash and grocery shop after a week!
8: My parents came over to visit, and my mom bought this for my new kitchen! I find it to be true, except for this night, in particular. A somewhat messy kitchen, yes, but not because of a successful meal, as evidenced by the pizza boxes. :)
