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.

  • Evelyn’s looking at me like... “really I’m stuck with you all the time now 🤷🏼‍♀️” and I’m like, “ yah girl.. triple chin and all 🤣😂” but seriously... When we hopped into the car today Evelyn declared, “ YESSS MOMMY! We go pick up Sophie and Ezzie now!! Yayyyyy!” Poor thing had four more hours till it was really time.

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?

There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
