It's been a long while, right?
I haven't sat down to write a post since before we left Minnesota. Whoops.
We did, in fact, move to Tennessee. I did, in fact, finally get everything packed. I did, in fact, have to unpack all of that crap. I did, in fact, feel like it was a never-ending task that would drive me to a padded cell.
For the first 2 weeks, we were living in a hotel until the moving truck arrived and until we could make the house livable (having beds to sleep on).
And then... we moved in. And it's been wonderful.
In the past few months, we have been busy. We had to unpack the entire house and set up a LOT of new furniture (you know how I love my IKEA).
In July, we had a great 4th with great weather and then we headed to our favorite retreat/vacation spot, Hilton Head.
I got to actually SEE my mom on her birthday this year which was the first time in over 6 years.
And for the last few weeks, I have been getting the lesson planning done to homeschool the kids again this year. (It was a lot simpler in MN, trust me.)
I've also been making a change to my appearance... working to lighten my hair little by little. (I am not a professional and would never attempt this myself.) My stylist and I talked about it and came up with a plan that is working nicely. If we tried going as light as the end goal at one time, it would damage my hair beyond belief. So we are taking it one root touch up at a time.
In between the busy stuff, I have been able to sneak in a manicure or two. Since I actually have a vanity now and a place to do manis, I was thrilled to try it out.
Over the next week or so, I will be getting some posts done with pics of the house and other stuff.
But for now, here's the first mani that I did in the new house:
China Glaze Splish Splash (blue)
China Glaze Purple Panic (pink)
China Glaze White on White
I will try to post the other mani pic that I have tomorrow.
