by the afternoon the apartment was empty and we were all moved in! how we had all of this stuff in that tiny apartment is beyond me...
we met a bunch of our neighbors and they are all soo nice! i think they said we have 17 kids on our street! i love it!
that night we got a bunch of things put in their places and then attempted to sleep.
the funny thing is that i was too excited to sleep.
i feel asleep finally around 2am and then woke up at 7am! crazy!
saturday we got up bright and early and then went to the store to get some fun homeowner things. you know trashcans, a power drill, ceiling fan, a new vacuum, goodies.
that afternoon and night i shot a wedding downtown at the magnolia downtown. it was the prettiest wedding i have shot probably. it was outside in the courtyard and the weather was perfect. i left at 10pm and was pooped! came home had some dinner and watched joel water the yard with a beer in hand...living the american dream he said.
today we woke up early and we took my dad to upstream for brunch and then experienced an amazing food coma. then mom and randy came over, dad ventured back to ok and brent and becky also came over to check out the house.
we took a nap this afternoon and woke up to the doorbell ringing. kyle stopped by to see how things turned out and to hang.
tonight we got some more laundry done, ran to target and are relaxing before another busy week. 1.5 days until nyc!
pictures of the house to come tomorrow when i get more things done!
ps- penny loves all this space to run free!!
pps- housewarming/danelle turns a quarter of a century old party on sept 20. make your calendars now! (its the only weekend without a home husker game- dont worry)
