Moved In Photos & Celebrating

The movers got here bright and early and started loading our truck

All the carloads of things I brought over to the new place really helped

I was able to get things organized in advance

And not have that super chaotic and flustered feeling of not knowing where my stuff is.  And yes, from my last post, I admit, I hate it when people touch my stuffBut so do many of you, too, it sounds like!

After the truck was loaded…

…we drove all of one mile to the new place, and the movers started unloading.

I started directing them, they assembled the beds and furniture that they needed to be reassembled.   Here’s Skylar’s room:

Just having all her toys and books put away is huge.  Sigh of relief.

My master and master closet is all set. <—that was a project getting that organized.  Whew.

Except for the Cable/Internet situation.  That’s not all set.  Cables are too short even with a splitter.

And Cox didn’t do what they said there were going to which is make sure the internet is up and running, so I will be held hostage tomorrow all afternoon waiting for them.  Joy.Oh.Joy.  Currently blogging using Scott’s Verizon card.

And I need to buy brackets and mount them yet tonight for my curtains.

Always something.

Things are shaping up pretty well around the new pad and I love my new living room!

All this wood just screams yoga!

It’s been so much work, as moving always is, and I want to stay here for a long time to come.  No force outs.

And I hope soon I can have some more time in the kitchen to make some desserts!

Maybe a pan of White Chocolate Blondies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

Just the frosting alone on these makes me want to get busy in the kitch!


After a long day, a long week, a big project, or big event that is done and over with, what do you do to celebrate?

I’m going to celebrate by going to work.  Kidding.  But actually I do have to work tomorrow.  Between my weekend in Mexico City and getting ready for this move, I have taken a few days off and I need to work.

Maybe I’ll celebrate with something from here

Or celebrating with something easy to make like Raw Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

Just kidding, I’ll be celebrating at ACE Hardware by buying curtain rod brackets, mounting brackets and curtains, then mounting a shower curtain, and a trip to the grocery store to stock the fridge with something other than wine.   Fun.

P.S. Thanks for the continued entries for the $25 Giveaway

  5. LOVE the look of your apartment- so lovely and neat… must go now to declutter a bit I think ;-)
    The capiz lamp is sooo nice!!! I saw one a while back (ceilig lamp) that I really really wanted for my bedroom, but didn’t buy there and then because there were other things I had to do in the room first (renovating an old cottage…) and now I can’t find something similar anywhere anymore… this reminds me to start another search for it though.

  7. I absolutely LOVE how minimal your home looks. I am in real estate and see so many homes that are chock full of items. How do you keep everything so organized? Impressive!

  8. Awesome progress on the move, looks like you have everything under control. Love the dining area and sofa set up, great colors and flooring.

    After a long week, I like to relax and maybe celebrate by not cooking and going out for a nice, laid back meal.

  9. It really is coming together! A lot of work, but it will feel soo good when it’s all done :)

  11. I´m happy for you everything went well! You have moved, awesome :) I hope you will be very happy in your new place.

  12. Haha – sometimes the best celebration is GETTING STUFF DONE. That said, I like to sit down with a glass of cold white wine…:-)

  13. Love your new pad and furniture’s. And that hardwood floor!!! Envious!!! I hate it that Florida homes generally has carpet instead of wood.

  14. OMG- I HATE it when people touch my stuff too! I can’t even handle it when things get moved around in the pantry. ha! Way to hang in there (and your place looks fabulous). Hopefully you celebrated a little. I would like one of your Vegan peanut butter cups right now please. :)

  15. Congrats on the move girl! Your place looks so crisp and clean and fresh. And ORGANIZED!! I suppose that is one good thing about moving, you get all your stuff put in its place! I hope that you do get some treat and celebration type things for yourself. You have been through a whirl wind. Unwinding is for sure needed! I wish you all the best in your new home, and here’s to you being there for as long as you want to be!

  16. I really like the simplicity of your home. It is so neat and you have spare belongings, which is not at all a negative in my mind…you have the essentials and things are neat and orderly and so clean: NO CLUTTER. I know you just moved so things may be tidier than normal, but just the organization of Skylar’s things and your counter tops and everything…I love it. It is how I like our home to be, neat and uncluttered. In fact, we have a motto that if we don’t use it, we don’t need it, so out it goes…not to storage, but to someone who will use it.

    As for unwinding after a long day, I love to have a book, my frozen coconut water and a fluffy blanket while cozying up in my jammies! Having all my guys around doing their thing just hanging in the same general area makes it cozy, too! :-)

  17. LOVE those floors! Congratulations, it’s already looking like home.

  18. The new place looks great, love the dark wood floors!

  19. Your place looks great Averie!!! You have so much space.

    I reward myself with a glass of wine, or I plan a party, which I find rewarding :-)

  20. Oooo girl I always reward myself with some treats!!! A little glass of wine never hurt anyone either! LOL

    You are one busy lady ;)


  21. Oh man your pantry of sweets got my mouth drooling immediately !

  22. I try to reward myself with something other than food…it never ends well!

    I usually do something like a manicure, a bubble bath…something relaxing…

  23. You are such a rockstar mover. I’m looking at a move in November and I may have to fly you out to help me…

  24. It looks beautiful! So simple and clean. I like my environment to be clutter-free too… I’m all about keeping the energy as stress-free as possible, and I really think it starts with good feng shui!

  25. After a hard or stressful day or week, I really like to unwind with a nice glass (or two) of wine :) The place looks nice, you’ll be settled in no time.
