Can the unpacking be done now?

Hubs and I are slowly settling into our new home, although the unpacking seems to have stopped. It seems as though we have all of the essentials unpacked and put away and everything else? Well…that can just sit on the floor in a box for a little longer. It’s not like we actually use it or anything. I’ll tell you what, moving definitely makes you realize just how much crap you really have. Seriously, I feel like we could have left half of it in our old apartment and I would have never realized it was gone.

It’s funny to me that I’ve always wanted to live in a house with character and that is exactly what God gave us. Except just not in the way I imagined. I always pictured a beautiful old Victorian, full of charm and gorgeous stained glass windows. Instead we got what looks like a rustic northern cabin smack dab in Southern FL. But I love it. The bright white kitchen, the gorgeous wood support beams, the slanted walls that make it impossible to place furniture and the high wood beam ceiling. Perfection.

And what I love most is looking at the kitchen window while cooking and seeing this:

We haven’t used our new pool and hot tube yet, but I fully intend on doing so soon.

Side note, the kitty figurines are husband’s FAVORITE. He just loves my kitty tchotchkes and wishes I would continue to buy more. In my defense, I warned him that, for every year that I don’t get a real kitty, another fake one would show up somewhere in the house. But I digress.

New homes are wonderful. Now did anyone watch the Bachelor last night? I watched a full hour before hubs came down and begged me to watch the last hour on Hulu tonight so we could “finally turn this crap off.” Being the sweet, loving wife that I am, I obliged. And we watched an episode of Breaking Bad on Netflix instead, which may be one of our new shows. I’ll tell you what, I thought it looked stupid when I saw previews on TV, but it’s pretty addicting when you start watching back-to-back episodes. Oh the joys of Netflix.

Happy Tuesday!

    I told you Breaking Bad was a great show! I’m so happy you started watching it. Let me know what you think as the season goes on.

    Also, I love the look of your new place. Can’t wait to come see it!

    Love the view of that pool! Breaking Bad scares me, but it is so addictive. We’re on Season 2 right now and I have a love/hate relationship with the show. AMC really does something right with their shows – I am a big fan of Mad Men.

    Also, a fake cat for each year that a really kitty doesn’t join your family seems perfectly fair to me!

      We just started season 2 and I agree, it’s a little scary at times, but addicting! I just can’t watch it right before I go to bed. haha. And glad you agree with my kitty arrangement! Really, I think it’s only fair. 🙂
