Lately

Soooooooo

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger lately but this move is kicking our butts. I am trying to decorate and make it feel as much like home as I can even though our furniture and other stuff isn't here yet. I am noticing we are functioning much better and are much more settled now that we are in our own home and things are starting to calm down a bit, especially for Logan. He thrives when he is on a schedule, we are all in the same house and we are more stable so I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the rest of our things. He keeps saying "How is this our new house when our sofa isn't here?" and "Are the movers going to bring my toys back soon? Its taking forever!"

While I've been waiting I have been filling the time with....

Buying a bunch of stuff I don't need....but is too cute to pass up....like my new chairs from Ikea



Building things like that awesome table to display Isaac's grandmothers radio that they used to listen to everyday before she passed away (So happy that we finally have a place to put this) and our entertainment center that I love! They both came from Ikea also (I spent waaaay too much money there this past weekend and the building ended in an emergency Jack Daniels run for Isaac haha)



Play dates where Logan squared discovered that team work makes dreams work



Getting ready to start my valentines day crafts



and a meeting with Isaac's commander where I am convinced to become one of the key spouses for the squadron

I promise this week I am going to be much better at blogging! I've got the recap from our Fussa walking tour from a few weeks ago, I'm trying a new recipe of stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon (mmmmmmmmm bacon) and obviously the reveal of our valentines day décor coming up!

Thanks for being such awesome bloggers, being patient when I haven't posted as much as I should have and for reading and commenting on old posts when I didn't put anything new up! I love you guys for that 😘😍❤️

    1. Thanks! The most awesome thing about them is that the pattern in just a 100% cotton a cover so I can wash them (which I am sure I will have too with this threenager in my house!) and when my décor changes I can run back to Ikea and grab a different cover

    1. I hadn't been to an Ikea in over a year and now I can't imagine not making it a monthly staple...especially since we don't have a target haha

  3. Oh excited to see what your V-day craft is! Moving is the worst, it definitely takes a while to get settled in. My husband builds hospitals so we move a lot. What a treasure to have that radio!
    Thanks so much for linking up with the #bestoftheblogosphere

  4. I just saw those Ikea chairs featured somewhere but now I can't remember if it was online or in a magazine! They are so cheerful. We moved from the U.S. to Germany so I know all about waiting and waiting for your stuff to arrive. Our crate took 3 months but it felt like Christmas unpacking everything. Your Valentine's crafts look like so much fun!
