We unofficially kicked off summer this past weekend by taking a (small) break from the moving “situation” to indulge in some of our favorite things!
Friday night Mike had a work event that was kid-friendly and involved tailgating before the Pirate’s game, so I was all for getting out and soaking up as much of Pittsburgh as we can, while we still can. We didn’t make it to the actual game, but we had a blast eating, drinking, and playing before it started.
Saturday was spent wrapping up more home projects during the day, but Saturday evening we took some time to unwind and had an outdoor fire and some adult beverages, while Max went crazy for roasted “mushrooms”… aka marshmallows.
On Sunday our friends invited us to spend the day at their neighborhood pool, which was honestly pure bliss as far as this family was concerned. We were in desperate need of a break from all things “moving” related, and some fun in the sun was the perfect anecdote. M&E literally swam, snacked, played, and ran themselves to the point of exhaustion.
Sadly though, that was the end of the fun stuff for us. Monday we were back down to business as usual. My mother in law came out to watch the kids and Mike and worked on painting, packing and more cleaning/purging. I am seriously blown away by how much stuff we have collected over the 7.5 years we have lived in this house.
We’re hopeful all of this hardwork will pay off as our house officially hits the market this Thursday, with our first potential showings this weekend.
Next week the moving company is on their way to start packing, loading, and shipping us off to NY!
In the meantime, I plan to try and continue to blog as usual, but if I miss post or two, you’ll all know why.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
