We’ve Moved In!

moving in to our first place

On Friday Chris and I finally got to move into our first place and we haven’t stopped working since. Every minute has been spent unpacking or working at omghow! We haven’t had any time yet to adjust to our new routines. My first priority has been our living room and it has been a very slow process.


Chris and I’s family and friends have been so amazing throughout this new adventure so far. Not a day has gone by that we haven’t gotten help or offerings of help from someone. We are so grateful.

Our home before decorating:

My favorite room (our bedroom) has been left for last. Not because I want to savor it, oh no, but because I’m too practical. Other than setting up my bed I’ve barely touched it because I became obsessed with making sure the living room/office/dinning room combo and kitchen are ready for guests. They are the most practical rooms so I feel the need to tackle them first.

The kitchen is a close second favorite. Look at that window!

In other happy news, my Graze invitation finally came in. I’ve been on the waiting list for a year. I’m not even joking. It’s a subscription service for SNACKS! I immediately signed up for the waiting list when I heard about it and I’m so happy that I got my invite code right after we moved. I should be getting my box in two weeks. I’ll make sure to do a video review and a giveaway on Blog O’ Yum so stay tuned.

Lastly, I need to give a shout out to my job at omghow, my YouTube channel, and my DAILY vlogging channel. I can’t believe that when I started doing videos in 2010 that it would lead me here in three short years. I wouldn’t have gotten my job at omghow without my videos! My boss is an amazing and kind person and the bank I got my loan from actually had her work on a lot of paperwork to confirm I had the funds for this home loan. I am beyond appreciative for her time and all that she has done for me.
