Right on the Walls

I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE the wall decals that are so popular these days.  I especially love the faith based ones and the last name and monogram ones.  I came across this company and I just love them!  Etsy also has loads of sellers who specialize in these as well.  I thought I would share a few of my favorites!

This one is great for wedding getaway cars as well as for anyone for everyday.


I especially love the "EST'D 2004" on this one.  How cute is that?



I like the FAITH circle on the wall.


For the front door!!!  Great for making rentals feel more like your own :)

Here is a little update about what is going on in our household this week!
We have been frantically organizing the house for our big move.  Let me just tell you, this last month has truly been the fastest of my life!  The moving trucks will be pulling in our driveway tomorrow morning!!!  They plan on moving us all in the same day.  Then we wait for the carpet cleaners to come, do our walk through with the rental agent and then spend the night on an air mattress so Seth can do his final outprocessing thingy.  Then we get in our cars and drive to Birmingham where we will stay the night and maybe do some shopping at their awesome shopping center!  Saturday, we will have baout 2 1/2- 3 hours left of driving until we get to our new house.  Our fridge and washer and dryer will get there on Sunday and our household goods will be there no later than Thursday.  We are hoping they will get there more like Monday or Tuesday.  We budgeted for 3 days in the hotel, so the other nights we will spend in our new house on an air mattress (chances are we might end up back in the hotel).  Our new house is new construction so there are no blinds!  I will bring towels and blankets for some rigged up temporary blinds, but we will just have to see how well those work.  Plus, Caleb only sleeps through the night when he is in his crib.  The pack in play just doesn't cut it (he is his mother's child).  All in all though, we are very excited to begin this new phase in our lives.  Goodbyes are always hard.  The hardest was saying goodbye to my best army friend ever, Kristen.  I took some silly pictures of us the other day that I plan on posting soon :)  She is expecting her 3rd baby and I am bummed that I won't be around to watch her belly grow and see her tiny little bundle.  I know that God placed her in my life at just the right time and maybe one day we will get to live near each other again!
So, with all of that being said, I am off to do a weeks worth of clothes packing and to clean out the fridge- fun times!  Then we are going to get Caleb his new Britax big boy carseat, just in time for a lot of traveling!  Talk to you guys soon!!!

Oh Kathlyn, what will I do without you here? I miss you so much already. I hope we can see each other soon and who knows what God is working on even as I type this. I love you all so much and will be praying!

be sure to pack some plates and a pot and some silverware, that way, if your goods are late, you can cook some basic meals at home instead of eating out!

i learned that the hard way. ha.

Have a safe trip. Will be praying for yall on your move.

I loved the wall vinyls. Will definitely be finding ways to use them when B and I get married and get a house. I love the "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" one- know I could find the perfect spot for that!

Praying for you all! We will miss you! Maybe our paths will cross again in the future! Until then, keep in touch and keep me updated on your lives through your blog!

Have a safe and uneventful move!! Transition is always something hard to go through and fun to look back on. :) Hang in there!

I believe Lowe's has temporary stick-on blinds - they're paper, so you can just cut them to size. My mom was using them "temporarily" but they ended up staying in the bathroom for a few years because we forgot they were behind the window curtain!
