I know, I know I have been gone forever!! Life has been crazy here in Pixie land!
First of all I am finally in Houston!! and in my new house too!! The kids are back in public school, and officer P is home and today he starts back at his permanent duty location so things are finally settling down.
I told you. Lots going on!
Even though I had been keeping on eye on the weather I was surprised with quite a bit of snow on our road trip from California to Texas!! I wasn’t prepare for it, and it was the first time I have ever driven in that much snow, but it was so much easier to manage then the sand storms in west Texas!!
Thankfully we made it safe and sound and the kids were so happy to be back “home”!!
About a week and a half after we arrived in Houston all the papers were signed and I was handed an envelope full of keys to our new house!!
Since then I have been busy unpacking, getting the girls settled in at school, and planning how I’m going to make the new house our “home”. This means a lot of time on Pinterest (do you follow me) pinning ideas.
Honestly, I really love it. At one point I had wanted to be an interior designer, then I realized I’m not that creative and can only copy other people’s ideas so I scratched that idea.
It’s going to take a very long time for me to get everything just how I want it, but I have already started my list of everything I need to make/ get and will be working through it little by little.
My first project was to turn these chairs and stained up cushions
I painted the table to match and now I’m trying to commit to a centerpiece idea. I’ll keep you posted on that. ;)
As for running, I’ve finally started to do that again. The new neighborhood is great for running, complete with sidewalks and nature trails, so I’m really looking forward to getting into a routine again!
So there you have it. What I’ve been up to in a nutshell!!
