Packing, Moving, and Unpacking

You always end up having more stuff than you think, right?!?!

Jeff and I tried to clean the apartment as we packed which really helped at the end. 

We closed on the house Friday at noon. By 2pm, Jeff's dad was at the new house with a van full of our wedding gifts. He unloaded them all and then Jeff and his dad did about 8 trips back & forth from the apartment to the house with our stuff. Luckily we didn't move far (basically across the street) so we didn't have to rent a U-Haul. Everything fit in Jeff's parent's mini-van.

On Saturday morning, my parents came over with their van full of things from Mukwonago and we unloaded all that. The cable guy also arrived about that time (we had to have TV set up in time to watch the Badger game that night!) My parents and I left to go  finish cleaning the apartment and Jeff's parents also met us at the apartment to finish any cleaning. We were finished by lunchtime. We could spend the rest of the afternoon at the new house!

The boys spent the afternoon mounting the TV on the wall above the fireplace and the girls put away wedding gifts in the kitchen.

Everyone left right before the game.

On Sunday Jeff & I did more unpacking and did a big Target run.

We took off work Monday as well and I am so glad we did. It was so nice to have that extra day. We turned in our apartment keys at 9 am and the landlord said the apartment was in impeccable shape (thanks everyone who helped clean!) Then we dropped off the Charter cable boxes and went grocery shopping.  Jeff's dad came out in the afternoon to help put blinds on the windows upstairs. Since it is a new house, there aren't any blinds in the whole house. We luckily saw some blinds at Target (on clearance!) and decided to buy them. They will work just fine.

We will spend a little extra time figuring out what we want to do for the downstairs window treatment.

One last bathroom selfie before we left.
While a tiny bit sad to leave this place, we are excited for our new beautiful house across the street!
