Packin’ Up and Headin’ Out.

The past few weeks have been a tad stressful.

Kyle was recently transferred to a completely different position at his job,

on the complete opposite side of town.

Kyle and I have been wanting to move more north for a while now. 

We don’t really love the neighborhood we are currently in, 

and we have a back neighbor that sits outside talking on the phone all day everyday,

so we can barely ever let Charley out because she barks at him like CRAZY.

We’ve been looking to buy somewhere near the Cypress area for a few months,

but haven’t had any luck AT ALL.

Our lease in the house we are currently in ends THIS month. 

We have always paid on time, and have heard our landlord loves us.

Therefore we figured we could extend our lease about 3 more months and it wouldn’t be a problem.


Our landlord decided to raise the rent significantly,

and there was no way we were willing to pay that amount.

Therefore, we started searching like crazy for a new place to rent.

A place closer to his work, in a better area, and preferably with no back neighbors!

God sure is good, we managed to find a place within a week!

When we found it we were informed that it had already had multiple offers.

So, of course we were super bummed and not very optimistic. 

Well guess what?! We were told yesterday that IT’S OURS!

Our official move in date is the 25th,

so we’ve got a heck of a lot of work to do!

Moving is never fun, and always stressful so please just keep us in your prayers!

Especially because Kyles new job is MUCH less flexible so I’ll probably

be doing a lot of the packing and moving myself. 

Although we’ve been wanting to get out of this house for a while it’s still bittersweet.

This was mine and Kyles very first home together, and the only home Charley knows.

So even though I’m super excited to be leaving, 

we are leaving behind some really awesome memories. 

If anyone has any amazing moving tips send them my way!! 

Happy Hump Day Pretty Girls.

xoxo, Monica

    Congrats to Kyle and yay for a new house! I hear you on the whole "doing a lot of this myself" thing. This past move (last month) was our 5th in five years. And I've done 3 of them on my own. Tips: pack per room…meaning: don't pack like stuff together. Literally pack up the living room with living room stuff. Don't put the living room pictures with the bedroom pictures because you think it makes sense. WRAP EVERYTHING. Use a dolly. Make your master bed up as they bring in the furniture. You won't want to stop what you're doing to do that…but I assure you at the end of a really long moving day the last thing you're going to want to do is make up your bed. Unpack your bathroom and kitchen first. If you get nothing else done that day–the house is at least "liveable." Good luck!

    Leave your clothes on their hangers and put them in trash bags. Hangers out the top of the trash bag, then you can hang them up right when you get them moved.
