House Update....

Things are FINALLY coming to an end! Well, kinda....

We laid sod this past Thursday. I have always heard people say they would rather be beat with a bat than lay sod, but I really didn't mind it. Don't get me wrong, it is not something I would want to do everyday but I felt pretty good when we were done. We also got our yard landscaped. It looks great!
Our granite counter tops are down and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
The painters are touching up and repainting the next few days. Also my back splash in the kitchen is being put up today. 
We are planning on having everything moved out of our current house this weekend. We already moved a lot to the new house but we can only align the basement walls with it b/c insulation has to be put up tomorrow.
We have everything pretty much packed up in boxes and ready to move just waiting on insulation. We may have to stay with Lee's parents for a few nights, not positive though (his mom will love having a kitty in the house;). I have been motivated to get all of this moving DONE so we can go to the BEACH next Wednesday for a couple of days!! 
This was a 4th of July to remember filled with MORE moving, scraping stickers off windows (why you put stickers on windows blows my mind, but I won't get started on that!) and MORE electrical work (I know you're jealous;) Ugh.

What's left?
            • Painters are finishing painting and touching up
            • Plumbing fixtures have to be installed (starting tomorrow)
            • Carpet in upstairs rooms (tomorrow)
            • Finish up insulation 
            • Shelving in all closets (Friday)
            • Finish moving
            • and A LOT of cleaning (Which I can not wait to do, It's driving me CrAzYY)
Then it's time to furniture shop!!!
I know you are thinking, WHERE WILL Y'ALL SLEEP WITHOUT FURNITURE?! Well, we have our guest bedroom furniture, so we are going to sleep in the guest room until I find my furniture. I have promised to look and get EXACTLY what I want and not rush. :)

That's all I got for now.... be back soon!!
