It's Been So Long....

...since I've blogged! I miss it! BUT. There's been good reason I've been a blog-less lady lately....

1) a 7-almost 8- week old baby girl who is so wonderful I can't even stand it!

2) a very slowwwww moving home building process (but we DO have a well now. Water- yipee!!)

3) going back to work. Two sweet students moved away during my maternity leave, and three wild new ones came in their place. Needless to say, my classroom is a zoo now.

With all the "life stuff" going on in our Ferrell household, sometimes I feel like my life's a zoo. However, with each of those things that are going on, I continue to count my blessings. The ability to be able to build a house, to have a job, to have a healthy baby.....those things make me so thankful!

The house really has been a slow mover, but hopefully things will start moving within the last half of this month. Boog & I are still talking - no huge conflicts over the color of the paint or anything! We actually see eye to eye on many things because we both are inspired over pictures like this:
Inspriation for our house....

Look at those beams and wood walls!

Hello lovely kitchen - I'm loving the old wood cabinets and fabric!

Love this galvanized outside light fixture! (lowe's $19.99!)

Anyway, I'm not really a super picky person. In fact, last night at Lowe's, Boog and I picked out most of our hardware for our house and it turned out that most of the things we liked were much, much lower than our allowances.

It pays to be simple! So, so good. Now we'll just await the pouring of the slab!

I can't leave a blog without posting a new pic of my 'lil Sophie. She's getting chubbier everyday.....I'm loving it. Her little personality is pretty peaceful. At night, she gets a little crabyy, but makes up for it with smiles and contentment during the day! I'm so glad it's SPRING BREAK so I can spend some time with my girls!

Sophie at bath time.....look at those cheeks!

If you're looking at moving house or home there are always plenty of headaches that go along with the process. In order to keep your furniture removal headaches at a minimum, it is a good idea to have a list of hints and tips to consider before taking the plunge.

Our Top 5 Panic Saving Tips during the Removal Process

1) Create a list of all items that will need to be moved to the new address. Creating a lists is key - and why it is number 1 on our list!

2) Shop around. Removal services prices can range greatly. Is always best to get at least a couple of quotes prior to placing a booking.

3) eBay is your friend. Is there anything that you don't plan taking to your new residence? If so, get rid of it. Friends, Family or even selling on eBay.

Moving house is a great opportunity to reduce your inventory by selling or giving away some of those no longer needed possessions.
