Fixing, painting, and yes, moving in!

So it's been 4 weeks of fixing up the new place, packing, and moving in. Before we moved, with the help of our family and friends, we painted every room in the house (even the baseboards thanks to my mom). Every color turned out great except for our bathroom. Apparently "Calming Retreat" is pseudo for light pink. Since I'm over painting at the moment, it's going to stay for the time being. Thanks to our amazing family and friends we are settling into our new home and getting used to the neighborhood. We appreciate everyone's help SO much! Thank you!
Before the 30 trips to Home Depot, hours of painting, pipes breaking, cleaning, packing, moving, and settling in. We're so thankful... and still are. :)
I love my husband..he is a cute dork!
What a happy little painter (or maybe a messy one)!
I think the shirt says it all.
This was the end of weekend 1- yes, we're still smiling.

Before we painted, we primed the walls.
Here we are on weekend 2. Jake had tunnel vision most of the time, but once in a while I got a laugh out of him.

Jenny painted the bathroom, spare room, and the kitchen. She was amazing!

Connie did an awesome job on the kitchen!
Painting the living room with Gary and Jake.
I decided to paint the fire place a deep brown. However, I think it turned out too close to "poop" brown. As we get furniture in, I think it might look a little better. Any feedback would be appreciated. :)

Weekend 3: Moving in! Here are the girls taking time out for a spontaneous dance party!

Jordan of course took a picture of himself. He looks well rested and ready for more work!
