Time for another What's New With You link up with Gretch & I! No real rules, all we ask is that you link back to us somewhere in your post - easy peasy. I'll be doing another monthly recap, since that's how I roll. So let's get to October - a pretty busy month!
Oy with the poodles it was a busy month!
It started off with a wedding for one of KC's ex co-workers, it started pretty early but was a ton of fun. Unfortunately I started to feel a bit ill towards the end and had to leave abruptly, but other than that we had a great time as shown below:
As I mentioned earlier this week, we sold our house! But first, we did a bunch of stuff including painting, fixing things and buying things. Summed up like that it doesn't seem like a lot but we worked our butts off for a couple of weeks!
The house was constantly a mess, we were tired and ate out way too much, we would box things up and forget that we would need them, we got paint on basically everything (including the cats which was SO FUN), found things we forgot about (hey first american phone), bought SO much stuff and spent all the money... And I think that is about it.
We also got rid of a lot of crap, the photos below are just clothes. We threw out old crap, left furniture on the curb.. Decluttered like crazy and it was amazing.
We bought a new bed! We bought a ton of new things for the house, like a new fridge, microwave, mantel etc, but the bed was purely for us. It is none of the options I mentioned a few weeks ago, we realised the upholstered look would be scratched unintentionally by the cats (they don't do it on purpose, that's just life with claws) and we absolutely wanted zero space for them to get under. So we bought a storage bed, but we won't get it delivered until we are in our new house. The cats are gonna love it though (talk about a crazy cat family, who buys a bed based on how much their cats will love it?).
This is what it will look like:
I ran a half marathon..
Then on that same day, we rented a budget truck and moved pretty much half of our belongings into my mother in law's basement. Guess how much fun moving is after a half marathon? SO MUCH FUN.
This is my face on the way back home after all the moving:
Clearly I was a bit loopy. We had a deadline because of a housewarming party we had to get to, which we were late to anyway, but I'm really glad we had a reason to hustle and also a reason to stop! I didn't take any pictures of the housewarming, but it's my bestie's new house and it is amazing and gorgeous. It was a ton of fun, we mostly sat around the fire. KC and I both crashed as soon as we got home.
The next day, we got up early and started decluttering properly, then we moved the cats into my mother in law's basement (guess how much they loved that! the drive! the carriers! the new surroundings! the fact that we were gone for hours!) and went back to the house and cleaned like crazy people. Our realtor was coming over at 4pm to complete paperwork and take photos, so again we had a deadline and reason to hustle. But at the end of the day, our house was listed!
Well, technically it didn't list till the next day as that was a Sunday, but details. The day after it went live, we had 5 showings and an offer by 5pm.
The photo on the left is after we cleaned everything and signed the paperwork, and the photo on the right is after we accepted the offer!
Random snaps from the month include food (yes, one night I had baileys for dinner, it was a bad day) and of course lots of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (I finished it for the 3rd time and want to start it again I am having withdrawals what is wrong with me I don't even know).
A couple of workout snaps.. I have been working out super consistently, just haven't felt the need to document it as much.
And of course, my favourite snaps every month:
Actually, the below are probably my favourite photos from this month. Chelsea hanging out with me, which she never does, and me reading (probably the only time I picked up a book this month hashtag Miss Fisher for life now) and KC making a stupid face because I take too many photos. Real life right there.
The last week of October was pretty busy as well - went to dinner with the girls to celebrate my bestie's birthday and also because we needed some cocktails. No photos though.
We didn't do anything for Halloween except hand out candy. It was the perfect end to the month, and to be honest I'm knackered and want to do nothing for like, 3 months. I also need to detox because of all the crap I ate in October. Guess what is not a good month for detoxing/trying to be healthy? November. So. This should be fun.
