Friday Favorites

I'm back this Friday, linking up with three of my favorite bloggers, AndreaErika and Narci and sharing some of my favorite things from the week today.  It’s basically total randomness.  Enjoy :)!

We are in full-on relocation mode!  Daddy begins in just 3 more weeks and we have a vacation scheduled in there.  There is so much to do - inspections and appraisals and working to get the house listed - before he leaves and I single parent it for a few months.  So. Very. Much.

I'm trying to calm myself and enjoy our last moments as a family of 6 in this house...and our last experiences in Rhode Island.  Just the thought of last drives down familiar roads, last visits to favorite places (oh, Second Beach!), and thinking of walking through our house for the last time reduces me to a big blubbering puddle of sadness.  So I just block all that out :) and think about the fun of finding a new house and discovering a new place together as a family.

Favorite #1 - 

We've had glimpses of nice spring weather this between rain and wind and snowiness!  This guy loved the sunshine and driving his new cars through the yard.

Favorite #2 -

All things organization!  I'm living with my calendar attached to me and this binder holds our life at this moment - all the important papers and documents that we CAN NOT lose!  It makes the OCD in me so very happy!

Favorite #3 - 

Boxes, boxes, boxes!  We are being "moved" by Daddy's new company and most things will be packed and moved by their relocation company.  But we needed to declutter and stage for the house to be put on the market.  And there are things I refuse to include in the sale (expensive curtain rods and brackets and such) that need to be removed before we list.  So we have a storage pod in our driveway and considerably less stuff in our cozy house...and a few boxes still floating around as we finalize things.  We've been in this house for 10 years and there is a lot of stuff!

Favorite #4 -

Easter Pjs!  Need I say more?  

Favorite #5 -

Daddy finally built Tater's birthday present from February - and I'm kinda of love with it...even though it is still sitting in the middle of my living room :).  We went with a full-sized bike so it will fit her for years to come...and it even fits me :).  There may be a time or two that I borrow it!

Favorite #6 -

Our MOPS craft for April is string art and I'll be doing an outline of Rhode Island as a memory of our home for the past 17 years.  So, of course, I needed to make the other 2 states we will have called or will be calling home :).  Plus crafting gives me a bit of mental therapy when I'm about lose my cool!

We have a busy weekend of more details and chores and memory making.  I'm exhausted even thinking about it :).  My biggest goal outside of house/moving stuff is to make a "Rhode Island Bucket List" so we can make sure we don't miss anything as we drag out this good-bye!

  1. It's been chilly here too, but we've had a few days with glimpses of spring and it's been so nice!
