Thursday Update

Hey there friends! We're just 18 days in to the New Year and I'm already failing at my goal of blogging regularly. In my defense, it's been a crazy few weeks. We moved out of our house on the 6th and had plans to stay in a beach house on base. Unfortunately, our winter storm caused frozen pipes and the beach closed down for over a week. We were lucky to have a place to stay thanks to Jesse's brother and his family. The girls loved having extra time with their cousins and we were so happy to we didn't have to drag ourselves, all of our stuff, and the two dogs to a hotel.

We were finally able to check into the beach house on Saturday and we hung out there until yesterday. It was way too cold to really enjoy any outdoor activities but we relaxed and enjoyed the views. 

Yesterday was a great day because we got the keys to our rental and we spent our first night here last night. We are so very excited to finally get settled and back into a routine. Even better, it snowed last night and due to icy road conditions, school and work were cancelled for today. It's currently pretty much all thawed out so we are using this free day to move the rest of our stuff in. Woohoo!!! I've already made a ton of progress and I feel confident that I'll be completely done by Saturday. We aren't planning on hanging anything on the walls until we know if we are getting orders. If we find out we're moving again in a few months we'll probably stay decor free just to make the next move easy. I'm not a fan of bare walls but we'll make due. :) I'll definitely share pictures of our new place once we are unpacked. 

In the meantime, here are a few randoms.

1. FOUR!!! Tuesday was this sweet girl's 4th birthday. I have a post in the works sharing all about our Addy Lou. We also plan on having a real  birthday party for her later in the month when we're settled in the new house. In the meantime, we had our traditional family celebration on Monday since we had work and school on her actual birthday.

All that celebrating wore her out. Parker was just offering moral support. :)

2. I ordered this adorable Prayer Journal that Allison from Inspired Budget shared on Instagram last week. One of my goals is to read the Bible or a devotional daily and I think this little journal will be perfect to help me stay on track. I also think it will be great to look back on in the future. I can't wait to get it!

3. Our rental doesn't have a coat closet downstairs so I'm thinking about ordering a hall tree. I have my eye on this one because I already have a few industrial looking pieces.  What do y'all think? 

4. My goal to read more this year is off to a slow start. I have a couple of books on hold at the library but I need something to read in the meantime. I love almost all genres so send your suggestions my way!

I think that's it for today! Hope everyone has a great week!

That prayer journal is so pretty! I'm glad you had someplace to stay since the beach house didn't work out - your girls are getting so big!
