We have (almost) Officially MOVED IN!

     As of today, May 25th, we have moved everything we owned to our new house!
It has been a long and arduous haul, but we are mere weeks of work away from being 'moved in'
I'm counting moved in same as Mrs. Incredible. when the last box is unloaded
She should know, how many time has she moved?!

      The sad thing about moving is realizing how much junk you've acquired over the years. Lucky for me, one of my worst nightmares is being a hoarder, so I systematically throw away stuff every other month or so and downsize.  Which also made it fairly easy to pack, since when I downsize, I downsize stuff into boxes. So everything was basically packed 5 months before we moved.
Shoot me if I get this bad

      We have torn out carpets and hauled in truckloads of junk, pulled weeds and bleached floors, cleaned fridges and slept on hard-wood floors, and finally was are that much closer to being done. thank god.

The cute, it is too much!

I have six adorable chipmunks for the weekend! They were found renting out a swamp cooler. The Landlord was unaware and promptly brought them to the Southwest Wildlife Foundation, Utah and the babies have to be hand-fed every 3-4 hours.  So adorable!

And also very fast. It is almost impossible to get a non-blurry picture of them.

I'm taking care of them for the next couple days so that my boss doesn't have to wake up every 3 hours during the night to feed them(plus who wouldn't want to be able to say they have hand-fed wild chipmunks?)

Well we have finally bought our first house! well, not really. we have been approved by a bank who took forever to tell us that we can try to by the house they own. (they did an annoying 'nanananana' the whole time we waited.) But we should be moving in in about two weeks!

It's an adorable townhouse with so much awesome, I swear one of the closets leads to Narnia! We get a little yard to do whatever we want with! (totally doing something awesome........I'll think of it later)

Maybe I could plant a garden??? I might kill it. My thumb is the opposite shade of green! the blood of plants I kill by accident.

We are definitely getting a grill so we can have epic parties in our epic small yard.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with the whole 'extra rooms' thing. My god, I have 2 entirely frivolous rooms! And I'm not talking about living rooms or dining rooms. I'm talking about BEDrooms. 2 completely useless bedrooms. and a basement! A BASEMENT!!!!!

Oh my god, I have 2 living rooms. The basement and the upstairs!

I'm going to feel so small in this house.

 Well, I also got a sexy little truck. Just look at the sexy!

Just look at it!! Look at that horrifyingly lovable homegrown paint job!

I love this truck so much and I haven't even gotten it registered yet.

I did do a bunch of hunting for all the parts it needs to pass inspection
             -speedometer (still looking)
             -latch assembly for driver side door (still looking)

I have no idea why I love this truck. The driver's side door doesn't open, the speedometer doesn't work (there is no needle) it had a CB radio crammed into the dash and jerry-rigged to the car battery, it's rusty, smells like smoke, dirt, cows and sheep, the ceiling is falling down/apart, it didn't have a bumper when I bought it, the seat didn't move back and forth (I fixed that too), it roars like a lion in first gear (I hate being loud) and it has a CAMO PAINT JOB. and Dale Earnhardt stickers. blegh. I haven't even started about the undercarriage.

Everything about this truck is wrong.

Yet so.....right.

It's like this truck was made for me. We were meant to be together.

Everytime I see it, I squee inside. The joy just bubbles up and I give out a little Pinkie Pie happiness noise! This truck knows me and I know it. And we will love each other for a long time.

I will be painting it different and some might think my custom paint job I'm thinking of is worse then the camo.

But this truck is my best friend and we both agree, camo got to go.

I'll be giving updates as I help my truck get a new paint job and name :)

PS. Name suggestions?
