Sorry for the lack of posts lately! Trying to wrap my head around all that is going on.  I feel it best to update you all in bullet form. :)
  • We made a decision about SOS (Alabama). We decided that we're just going to pack up and go with! We're treating it as a 2 month vacation. In a 2 bedroom apartment, but hey, it's furnished! :)  Good news is that we're close to the ocean, we have other friends that are going, the weather will be nice, and we'll all be together!
  • On the home front...we've decided to go ahead and try and sell it. It's been a little of a madhouse. The day after we reached that decision we had a stager come look at the property, painters come give us estimates, and had meetings with our realtor and a property manager just in case we can't sell it. We're hoping that with us being gone (along with a lot of our stuff) that with nice furniture, a clean house, and it being a good time to put the house on the market, that we will get a good offer.  We'll see! We have a lot of work ahead of us to list it in the next 3 weeks. Everyone's optimistic so I'm trying to be as well! :)
  • We're all feeling better now stomach-wise. We passed it on to Gramma and Grampa though and they're in Minnesota trying to dig out of the snow while not feeling well. I'm sorry!!  We mainly all have our appetites back and are trying to get out and about since the weather has been nicer lately.

This was the zoo on Tuesday where it was 65 degrees out with a touch of crabby children.

I take really lovely pictures with my phone, don't I?

We had a baby sprinkle for a friend here that is almost due with her second child. We never got a group shot but of course I got a picture of the cake!

And we went to an indoor playground which is actually a business trying to sell their playsets but open it up during the winter as a playdate place...genius!  

  • We're headed to Arizona tomorrow to go visit Brian's grandparents in Tucson. To say I'm nervous about the flights is an understatement but we are so excited to get to some warmer weather and go see the sights with Grandma and Grandpa Ross!

I'm off to go do more laundry, packing, chores around the house, and hopefully catch up on my blog reading! Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Have a wonderful time in Arizona! Soak up some sun for me!

Hope your home sells quickly!!! We are in the process of selling a home we own in another state, and it's been quite the pain!

Jenn said...

Good luck with the flight! I'll be saying many many prayers for you (and Layla!!)!!

Have a great time in AZ! I will be sending up prayers for a quiet flight! ;) Pack lots of suckers! And drink lots of wine! :)

I'm a new follower and this was a great post to find in my feed since it introduces me to whats going on pretty quickly :) Good luck with the flight but visiting family will make it totally worth it I hope!

Jen said...

Have a great time in Tucson! Love it there. :)

You guys have been busy! Glad you guys are feeling better, and I would be terrified to fly with Charli at this age... I am pretty sure this age has been my least favorite (hahaha) ;). Have a great trip and safe travels!

Jamie said...

We're about to put our house on the market too... Stressful!

Shannon said...

I wish we had an "indoor playground" like that. What a smart idea!!

And I'm happy you guys are going to take the "mini 2 month vacation". It will be tight, but probably worth it to all stay together!

So lovely! X

You have my best wishes and most sympathetic thoughts for your flight. I was just thinking about what it would be like to fly to Colorado to see my best friend and as soon as I started thinking about ALL THE BABY STUFF we'd have to bring I started to hyperventilate and had to stop thinking about it. That's how I ended up reading blogs instead. Avoidance of problems at it's finest! ;)
