The Move! Oh and a bridal shower!

So we are finally moved into our new apartment.

I was a very interesting ruff move but we are moved.

The new place is in downtown Lancaster, Pa which gets busy especially on market days. Where parking is metered and scarce. Then we really only had a few Sundays to move since that's the only day we are both off.

So we found sitters (even at that instill had to take time pump milk sry TMI to those who are sensitive to breastfeeding) and borrowed a truck and got packing and moving.

Some friends and family pitched in and helped a few days that was so great and beyond helpful even if it was just and hour or so it made a big difference.

Durning all this moving and packing and before we were approved for the apartment I was in the process of planning and hatching a Bridal Shower for my sister.

It was a surprise as well and the bridesmaids and we were busy busy.

So my final weekend if moving was also the weekend for the shower.

It was busy and hectic but it was a blast.

She was clueless and it turned out so great. She was very surprised and we had a great turn out of friends and family.

So after all that Justin and I had one last day to finish packing and moving.

I woke up that day with a sore throat and felt so sick and weak. I was so upset but I had to keep going. My auntie brought medicine since ours was packed up and I got a pep in my step and hauled arse! Haha

So below are the pictures I promised - this is our apartment empty. You don't want to see it at its current boxy stage. I will show you it filled with our things after it is all unpacked.

Also another huge crazy factor in all this was moving our fresh water fish tank. Transfers in fish and live plants was a project in itself. And I am glad all the fishes survived the far. Not sure how they are adjusting but I know they are stressed a good bit.

All in all it was a good weekend. We are moved and we got to enjoy sleeping input new place.

Jazmine was even more excite because she got a new bed and a bigger room. She didn't see the apartment until last night so it was a fun surprise for her.

Well that is all for now.

New Apartment!

Today is a great day!

Yesterday Justin and I signed a lease to our new apartment.

Another rather unique apartment.

It's nice and close to the downtown area and right next to our Central Market. Easy access to fresh produce!!!

It is a very spacious apartment with a lil balcony and a good amount of storage space and closet space.

A bigger kitchen! With room for a small table and chairs.

Things are looking up!

Now we are calling around to try and seek friends and family that can help us move.

I also need to make a list of things we will NEED for our new place.

I will be posting picture updates later.

You all have a fantastic weekend!

Tooth Fairy

Today my daughter lost her very first tooth!!!

Wow she is growing up so fast!

Next is puberty...OH...NOOOO!!!

So WOW it was kinda hard trying to explain to her why she lost her tooth and that she is going to be fine.

She kept saying she was sad. That it hurt. That she missed it. Asked if it was going to hurt when it grows back. Asking questions about the tooth fairy. Ugh it just went on and on...

So this is sorta what I said.

(With a big excited smile and voice!)

Wow Jazmine you lost your first tooth! We need to take a picture (jazmine sad and crying in front of me)!

I was wiping tears off her face and taking pictures trying to cheer her up.

Then I said "Guess what?! You get to put your tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy is going to take it and give you money."

She said "will my tooth come back after that?"

I said something along the lines of yes but it will take time to grow back. Then she said "Will it hurt..." Me answering as best as possible...just a lil but I don't remember because it was a long time ago.

She was questioning me left and right and I couldn't answer her enough to get her to stop.

So then I said,"Well you get jello now!" It's nice and soft and fun!" Yup from questions to jello just like that. Had to distract her!!! Hahaha!

Anyways now I gotta look up fun stuff about tooth fairies and see what I can tell her.

Anyways she is beckoning for her jello. I need to see if its ready yet. Yup we made it from a box. Didn't buy it pre-set.
