We Are Finally Done Moving!

Moving With Kids

That honestly felt like the longest move ever. Most likely because it was. We got possession of our new house on the 15th and didn’t have to be out of our old place until the end of the month. With so much going on we decided to just go slow and steady. Can’t really say if I think that was the best idea or not. It seemed to be good for us at the time and honestly don’t know if we would have had a weekend to do all the moving in one go, but it really did seem to be a looonngggg haul.

I got a lot of great moving tips on this Instagram post. Always appreciate your comments!

Yesterday I met with our landlords and we passed the keys back over. Phew! Done. I walked the house with Sophie and doubled checked each room. As we were heading back to our van she stopped in our driveway and said, “But this is our house mom? Why are they still in it?” I explained to her as well as I could about how we needed to move and I do think she understood most of it.

I was curious about how the move would go with the kids. They did so well when we moved last year, that I wasn’t too worried about it. So far this past week and a bit that we have been at our new place, it has been great! Even though the house is a bit smaller, it feels like there is so much more space (could be because half our stuff is still in boxes though, hmm).

Not only are the kids taking the move really well, I am personally feeling so good about it. I didn’t love the other place that we were in. I tried really hard to be grateful for it and felt like near the end before we found out that we had to move that I was accepting it. Since moving though, I just feel so much better here. It is hard to explain but I have told people it just breathes better.

The lighting is better (something I complained a lot about at the last house) and the yard space is so great for the kids. I am so excited for the memories that we will make here. I am excited to arrange and decorate the rooms, but first to paint the walls white… as soon as my husband jumps on board with the idea. Oh and unpack… here we go.

  • There are quite a few new faces around here since the last time I did a little "things about me" introduction. I love sharing strange bits about me and knowing who else out there can relate. Make sure to let me know in the comments. So let's get going on one shall we.⠀
1. Hey, I'm Codi Lynn. People close to me call me Codi. My name has forever been spelled wrong, one time the guy at Starbucks spelt it right and my eyes got so wide in shock... then I realized I was wearing a name tag.⠀
2. I haven't always had glasses, when I was halfway through my pregnancy with Sophie I realized I could no longer read the TV guide without squinting. When I got my prescription I found out it is common for pregnant woman to loose their eyesight... just another joy of pregnancy right there.⠀
3. I only just figured out how to pencil in my eye brows and not gonna lie, pretty pumped about it.⠀
4. A part of me wants to move away and experience more of the world but then the majority of me never wants to leave the area where my Mom, Dad and sisters are.⠀
5. My husband is convinced that one day I will like mushrooms. That's never going to happen. •

  • Somehow these two + Ezra made it into bed before 8 tonight, I'd call that a summer miracle.
•
This summer bed times have been all over the place. Do you as a family stick to a routine or find you stay up later in the summer months? Love to hear how you guys roll! We are pretty well all over the place with some decently late nights lately, which made tonight feel so so good.

  • These two are kind of like watching a game of cat and mouse. Here the cat is teasing the little mouse with her rose that somehow perfectly matches her @pemberleyco dress.

  • Had a night away tonight and I have a couple things to say about it.
1. I bought the new Almond Frap from Starbucks on the way out and it was 👎🏻😩🤢 Anyone else tried it? Better yet, what's your fav Starbucks cold drink?
2. Tonight speaking at @briteup_etsyyvr's social media event was such a joy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE connecting with people in real life and being and able to share what I've learned to help them reach their goals. Seriously, such a thrill!
