We did it! We officially moved into our first home this weekend.
With the help of our parents, who helped clean and organize the house from top to bottom, we are now all moved into our new place. The move went really seamlessly and I can’t tell you how amazing the guys at Mambo Movers were – they were seriously moving machines, I would recommend them to anyone!
It’s awesome to think that Jackson now has so much more space, including his own little backyard patio, to run around in. He is still in the process of getting used to all the stairs in the house but I know he is going to love it once it becomes more familiar to him.
It’s also amazing to think that this is where we will bring home Baby Brinks from the hospital in a few short months. He now has his own room, we even went to pick out furniture this weekend – I can’t wait to start decorating the little guys new digs. Baby boy already has some gifts, toys & clothes in his new room that are waiting for his arrival.
Did I mention we already have the best neighbors? We were greeted with a cake & donuts to welcome us to the block – such a great sign that this is the perfect neighborhood for us to start our family.
And since we were moving all weekend, and I haven’t gone grocery shopping since before our trip to Chile, we did a lot of dining out – here are some of my favorite eats:
The Hollywood – hummus, cucumber, sliced red onion, shredded carrots, avocado & pepper jack from RyBread Cafe.
Non-Fat, Decaf, Latte from OCF Coffee House – I enjoy the foam art.
Pumpkin Soup from Rembrandt’s.
Needless to say it was a very tasty & productive weekend. I can’t wait to share more of our new home with you as we get everything set up & organized. We still have some work to do but it’s going to be a blast to make this home our own.
