We're All Moved In...

Welp, we had the big move this past weekend. My mom and I moved out of our family home of 15 years and into a teeny, tiny apartment. Like two girlfriends taking on the city.

Actually, it really sucked. First, it's not fun moving out of a really nice home that your parents built and into an apartment with your mom. Thumbs down all around. Second, our apartment sucks. It's nothing like the model that they showed us, its a lot smaller, and it's apparent that they haven't done any work to maintain this place since they opened the complex. It's safe to say I was a mess on moving day...and the day after.

So Momma Simps and I are doing our best to spruce up the place. With a little paint and some decorating, I think we can make this little hole in the wall somewhat cozy. But first we need to unpack everything, and let me tell you, we got rid of a ton of things when we moved and it's still not fitting in this tiny place!

Speaking of painting. Justin and I dove head first into painting my room.

Needless to say, we won't be opening our own painting company in the future. A lot of paint ended up on the floorboards and the ceiling. Oh and a little paint on the carpet and the doors. See, we're sooooo good at painting! If you need any painting done, just hit us up!

I just have to say, I don't know what I would do without my love. I loved him a lot before this weekend, but I definitely love him so much more. Not only did he spend his weekend helping move boxes and boxes of heavy things, but he's been by my side when I needed him the most.

You would think that moving wouldn't be so emotional, but this weekend was really hard for me. I think it was the combination of the past year with my parents divorcing and then having to move out of our home. But Justin was there for me no matter what. He even turned down tickets to the Michigan game. THE MICHIGAN GAME! That's a big deal and a whole lot of love on his part. I could go on and on about what an amazing person and boyfriend he is, but all you need to know is that I couldn't be more thankful. I'm the luckiest girl in the world...well, in my opinion!

Now that all the major moving stuff is over, I'm excited to get back into my normal schedule and that means consistent blogging! I've missed all you lovelies so much this past week. I can't wait to catch up on what's been going on in your neck of the woods!

I'm sorry moving wasn't a better experience for you, but it will get better and easier. And you're a very lucky lady to have such a great supporter in your man. Good job Justin! Just don't quit your day job to become a professional painter's tape would've help y'all a bit I think. ;)

This made me tear up! What an awesome man you have! I feel the same about my husband. I had to move alot with my parents and moved away a couple times and he always helped! It is so nice having someone care and be there for you through such a big change! Good luck with eveything!

Haha, I painted once and it was a complete disaster so no professional painting in my future either. Sounds like you also have quite a keeper ;)

“I could go on and on about what an amazing person and boyfriend he is, but all you need to know is that I couldn't be more thankful. I'm the luckiest girl in the world...well, in my opinion!” Well, that’s how every girl should feel about being loved by her boyfriend! And I commend your boyfriend for that. :) Anyway, I understand how moving can be difficult, especially when dealing with the struggle of going through all the boxes. Good thing there’s someone to help you. I wish you well in your new life in your new apartment! :)
