Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

What a week it was!

We are full steam ahead with the move.

Our mover gave us some tips to pare things down and get organized for the big day.

I ordered lots of moving boxes and packing materials.

And we are now looking at 23 years of living here and thinking…how did we accumulate so much stuff???

As of now, we are scheduled to move mid-December, so the clock is ticking to get things done!

LET’S GO!!!!!

Our family at Thanksgiving Dinner

We are hosting the last Thanksgiving here at our home before the move so I’ve been preparing for that too.

Everyone is coming so we are going to have over 20 guests!

Will be so fun to celebrate with our family again after not gathering last year.

It’s my forever 49!!!!

Did I tell you guys that?

Yes, this birthday is a big one and it is the day before Thanksgiving.

So we’ll celebrate over the holiday weekend.

But since I’m still recovering from surgery, we’ll be taking it easy.

Oh and my girls are coming home this weekend for Thanksgiving break.

I can’t wait for them both to come home.

And it will be nice to spend some time with them celebrating it all.
