Moving Madness!

Hey guys!
I just wanted to do a quick check-in to say HAAAAYYYYY! I miss you! I'm happy that the holidays are here and I will have a couple of days off soon to catch my breath. If I haven't said it before, allow me to say it now...I'm NEVER moving again! Unless I'm making major money or my job pays for the packing, moving and unpacking, I'm staying put!

I have never been so exhausted in my life! My mom, the slave driver, came over to unpack the kitchen yesterday. Thank God for her, but she wore me out! By the time she left I was wishing my bedroom was on the main floor! All that up and down the stairs...WOOOOOOO!!!! But the kitchen is completely unpacked and almost resembles a real kitchen :). So for that I am grateful. I also learned that probably 80% of the boxes were full of KITCHEN CRAP!!! This new kitchen is so much bigger than my old kitchen but you wouldn't know it because I'm already bursting at the seams. Good thing I already have all I need for THAT room!
Old Kitchen

New Kitchen--countertops are one of those changes to be made

The move also re-introduced me to stress headaches. Although I hired movers ( to move everything from storage and didn't have to worry about any heavy lifting, I had plenty of other stuff to worry about. Like not having water for 6 days after I moved. And for like, once the water was finally turned on, I discovered a leak in the half bath that required immediate attention. Sooooo, UGH BOO!

But all in all I am already in love with my new house. I have some things that I will have to change/fix-up but nothing really major. Except the carpet in the half bath...I don't understand why anyone would do that, but it has to go PRONTO!

I'm excited to have a new blank canvas to color up. I've picked out some colors but figured I'd better put my furniture together first. Priorities. And two of my couch cushions have mysteriously gone missing...maybe they fled when my dresser met the concrete on a major road...I don't know. All I know is now my couch is snaggletooth. Not a good look.

I am proud of myself for several reasons though.

1. I stepped out on faith and found a house that with a little tweaking will become my dream home. I was scared that I wouldn't be able to do it. But thanks to the most amazing Real Estate agent in the world I was able to! :)

2. I sold a house, bought a house and had jury duty all in the same week. I know. I rock!

3. I learned that I can't always depend on people, but God really has my back and has my best interest at heart. I'm a believer! Not that I haven't always been, but I'm not perfect and I have my moments of doubt. He's never failed me yet!

4. For a few things around the house, I programmed the garage door opener/remote/keypad. I've never had a garage in my life but this was super simple. I learned how to light the pilot on my hot water heater. Never had gas either! But the thought of taking a shower in freezing water while it is super cold outside...wasn't gonna happen!

I thank all of you who listened to me rant and rave about finding/buying a house to no end. I love you to infinity and beyond!!

I don't have internet access at home yet...but once I do, I'll be back to posting on a regular basis.

Until we meet again,
Sending you lots of Chocolate Kisses and wonderful holiday wishes!



  1. Congrats again Ro! Love the kitchen! Can't wait to see more!

    1. Thanks girl! If i could ever get fully unpacked I would be totally and utterly in love! But I'm lazy...very lazy LOL. I planned on having it all done by today...but I'm at work so blah. :)

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
