Moving out!

I haven't done a great job of keeping the blog updated lately. Philip and I have stayed busy working and packing! Business has really picked up at Million Air! We were awarded the government contract on the airfield, so the military traffic has at least doubled our business! I even marshalled a King Air in the other day that we weren't expecting. Our hand signals are based on the Blue Angels', and Pip was surprised that I knew how to do them! haha. I was proud of myself! =)

We had our walk-through yesterday, and the house looks great! We are closing on Monday afternoon, and are hoping to move most of our stuff over on Tuesday. Mom, dad, and Wade are coming through on Wednesday before heading to my Mamaw and Papaw's for Thanksgiving! Here are some recent pics for your enjoyment:

Moving out and my new addiction...

Now that we have our closing day, we are so ready to move out of our apartment! Yesterday, we started going through some stuff, and took a load of books, clothes, and some old furniture to Goodwill. I thought I remembered hearing that Big Lots in Clinton gives away boxes, so I called our Big Lots in D'Iberville this morning to ask. They said they were getting a shipment tomorrow morning and will set some boxes aside for me! Yay! Free boxes! Thanks, Big Lots!

We met with our mortgage lender yesterday morning and signed a lot of papers, so that is basically squared away. We also heard that our driveway and sidewalk have been poured! I haven't been out there since the last pics were taken, but hopefully I will have some more soon.

In other news... I'm addicted to Pinterest. If you don't know what it is, let me fill you in. It is a virtual pin board, that allows you to "pin" pictures from websites and save them to your "boards". I have boards for recipes, home decorating, holiday decor, crafts, gift ideas, quotes, and more... It is so wonderful because you can follow others' boards and get tons of incredible ideas! I have already gotten some outstanding recipes, and home ideas from it! I basically have my new house decorated in my head bc of pinterest. haha! But seriously. My latest project that I want to try this Christmas: an ornament wreath. All you need is a wire hanger and ornaments!

See?! Don't you want to get on Pinterest now??? I thought so! ;)
