No, I'm not pregnant.

BUT, I've been sitting on a secret for about four months now. And now I can share!

We are moving BACK HOME to Birmingham, Alabama!!! I can't wait to be by family!!

We put our house on the market at the very end of March. We had at least 30 showings. And at the beginning of July, we got an offer! July 9, to be exact. And the buyers want to move in on AUGUST 4th.

So, I started packing back then, and then I slacked off because, what if it didn't happen. Then we had our appraisal and inspection, everything went well, and that was last week. So, I have been packing a 2500 square foot home for the past week with two children. It's about as much fun as washing 485 disposable diapers with all of your favorite clothes and then having to pick all the shit off your clothes. Just saying.

Thankfully, my MIL came for four days and I got some more packing done, then my mom and sis came for the weekend. We managed to pack up the whole master closet, attic, my bedroom, and some of the garage. We also had a yard sale and made a nice profit!

Jason is going to commute to Atlanta to work three days per week. I'm going to stay home with the kiddos and do my thing.

Since the sale happened so quickly, we don't have a house picked out. We haven't even gone to look. Because, hello. Packing house = more important. So, we will be shacking up in my sister's basement.
That's gonna be about as fun as picking fleas off a monkey while driving through a mud pit on heroin.

Basically, this will be me.

In all seriousness, it will be fun and A LOT of crazy for my family of four to live with her family of three. We will be looking for houses stat!

I am so excited to be moving home, being closer to everyone, and getting to see all the people on the reg.

We close on Friday. The moving van comes Saturday. Our entire house goes into storage. It's going to be a great adventure. Please pray that I don't end up looking like this before we get into our new home!


  1. Good luck with the move! We just did that, and I purged a bunch of crap! It is a good feeling. I know you are pleased to get ccloser to your fam! Exciting!!!

  2. How exciting! The story about the old lady is just too funny! Give them an inch and they take a mile.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
