We finally made it out of Louisville (see I told you guys I would get out of there one day!). After a crazy 24 hour drive that included a billion and one stops to eat, gas up, walk the dog and nap. It was beyond exhausting because John drove a massive Pensky truck with Chandler in the passenger seat and I drove our Jetta with December in her dog car seat in the passenger seat and Ethan and Jayde in the backseat.
When we arrived here in Round Rock Texas (Just outside of Austin) we had a few hiccups being able to get into our home but after a few calls it all worked out and we were able to get into our home around noon that day. By 2pm we had the massive truck unpacked! Honestly I have no idea how we did it.
Since I had this brilliant idea to not bring any of our beds we had to make an emergency stop at IKEA, which also happened to be our very first trip to IKEA as well. We were running on three hours of sleep within 2 days and we all were exhausted and I blame the lack of sleep on the fact that we spent just short of $3,000 on beds for all of us. Really I would have spent SO much more had I shopped anywhere else. We bough 3 full sized beds for the kids and a king sized bed and mattresses for them all for that price which really isn’t that bad.
The next few days were a blur of shopping, eating and unpacking. Which includes piles of more boxes than I have ever seen. We are finally settled into the home some, but still have about 10 boxes to unpack in the garage. Once I get everything under control I cannot wait to share our new home with you guys, including my HUGE walk in closet!
