T-9 days!! Crunch Time people!!!

That's right It's 9 days until D-day or should I say M-day(moving day)! Around the end of last week the boxes started to take over our living area's, not to mention the fridge in our living room (long story I'll explain in a bit). Our little townhouse is very narrow (12 feet wide) and a good 6 to 8 feet has now been annexed by boxes. Come moving day it will make it a lot easier to have all the boxes close to the front door, but for now we are living in the upstairs, dinner in bed? Heck yes! hehe
Now as for the fridge in our living room that story goes something like, we needed a fridge as soon as we move in, we refuse to pay full price (around $2000), so we went to an outlet store (sears outlet to be specific), found one for $1320 minus 40%(weekend sale)  = a fabulous, brand new, side by side, counter depth, stainless steel fridge for just over $700. Totally worth living with a fridge in the Living Room for two weeks (although I'm not the one who has to move it down the stairs :)
I wanted to share with you the other area's of our house that are a little less 'high profile', the bathrooms, closets etc. . .

Again, sorry about the poor quality pictures I only had my phone with me that day, but as soon as we are in I will take some great photos that really show off the space, at the very least these terrible quality photos will make for great Before pics :)
Here's our full guest bathroom: Again with the open toilet lid, geez!

Our master bathroom: This bathroom we will be doing a big of work. I love a bright and airy bathroom, so the wall color as well as some of the fixtures will get changed (the baby poop wall color is just not doing it for me)

Here's our powder room: I probably should have closed this toilet lid too, before I took the picture, oops

Our coat closet, I know it sounds silly but I am so excited to organize it!

and the door leading to the basement! (I don't know why I wanted to share this but I really like it!)

Since we are nearing move day I thought I would share with you the schedule for the next couple of weeks.
Our move date is Oct.28th and 29th.

Tomorrow's post- master bedroom plans
Thursday's post- master bedroom products
Friday- Moving Tips, tricks and idea's round-up! (So if your not planning a move maybe hop over to one of the blogs on our blogroll today).
Then we'll be gone for 2 weeks! I'll pop in a couple times to shoot and up date but for 2 whole weeks we'll be moving and suffering from blogger with drawl!
Our twitter account will be holding the day to day updates during those two weeks, you can check in or follow us here.
However, Moving isn't terribly exciting, our twitter updates will probably go something like this:

Moving today
Hurt my self moving today
So tired of moving today
Thank goodness I'm not Lee today (Lee has to move all the really heavy stuff, did I mention the fridge).
All done moving today :)

I am so excited to start sharing our simplified, organized, green life with you again.
Lately life has been anything but simplified!


  1. The best thing is, paint color can be easily changed and the other stuff that is harder to change looks GREAT! Love the millwork at the basement door...Janell

  2. I had to smile when I read that you think your bathroom walls are baby poop color. That's the the same thing I said about my master bathroom's walls as I was painting them (I know, why did I keep painting?!) I was using no voc paint because I was pregnant at the time and I didn't want to spend big dollars on another color :) In retrospect, I think another $35 for a can of paint is small amount to pay for a room you would actually enjoy every day. Now, I just look at it and ask myself WHY did I pick that color?!

    Happy Moving!

  3. Oh wow - I love those counter tops in the washrooms. Bee-U-tiful.

    The doors too - lovely. They have a bit of retro charm to them. Love all of the trim and molding in the house (I salivate with jealousy).

  4. This is such a beautiful blank canvas! You will be having so much fun with it!

  5. I can't wait! It's like moving into a new house myself but without all of the hard work! LOL!

    Many Blessings,

  6. Before you know it moving day will arrive!

    Paint is easy to change and gives a room a whole new look. Bet you can't wait to work your magic.

  7. Thanks so much we cannot wait to move! So excited! The Downstairs is packed and will now be moving upstairs, eeekkk!! Can't Wait!

  8. How fun! Your house looks beautiful and you can easily change the paint color to suit your style. You're goign to have a ball fixing it all up. I know moving is tough but the end result is so rewarding. I can't wait to see where you hang that gorgeous chandleier that I love so much!

  9. I'm so excited for you! Your house is GORGEOUS. I can't wait to see more pics! =] You are going to have so much fun getting settled in there.

  10. Moving is so stressful for me. Thankfully the last 2 times we had a crew do must of the job but still, organizing, packing-unpacking, tons of work.
    I know you will do wonders, but I would take that house poop walls and all, is beautiful!


We're here to lend an ear,
So leave a word and you'll be heard!
