Life Update

Hey ladybugs and beetles😊 Sooo I thought it was time to give y’all and update on the house hunting and camper living.

House hunting: We found a house!!! Got everything situated, put an offer in, and if all goes well, we should be moving by the end of this month! They have chickens, and they’re actually leaving them there for free! So we an now get a head start on the farming. They’re also leaving a paddle boat, hammock, and bar stools! I am so. very. excited. It’s a gorgeous house with 45 acres of land and two ponds. I really can’t wait squeeee Maybe once we move in I can do a room tour. I’ve decided that with my new room I want everything to match. Furniture, decor, everything. In our old house my room was kind of all of the place. I had Paris stuff, Minion stuff, pink and green walls, everything I found I would just pin the wall. So, this time I really kind of want to tone it down a bit. My wonderful bestie made me a painting, and I of course will hang that up, and a drawing that she did for me, but other than that, I don’t think I’ll put a lot of stuff on the walls.

When we moved we sold ALL of our furniture, so yesterday we looked at a few furniture stores and I have been searching FaceBook marketplace. I decided that I really want a loft bed, so I can put a little couch under it and put a TV in front of it. I’ll include some photos from Pinterest here ⬇

I found a super cute dark blue couch that I want but it’s *ahem* $599. BUT….that leads me to some more good news. I talked to one of the owners of the campground about working for them, and starting this Wednesday (April 14th) I will be cleaning the bathhouses on a daily basis. We haven’t discussed how much he’ll be paying me, but any amount of money is a lot better than what I have now. I’m hoping that with the money I make I can buy a couch, a tv, etc. Not sure if I’ll be able to by everything I want, but hopefully some.

My brother and I have made a new friend at the campground who we have been hanging out with almost constantly. We play basketball, walk the trails, play bean bag toss, go to Walmart😂 His family has two side by sides and they go riding the trails, and they were kind enough to take my brother and I the last two times they went. His parents ride in one side by side, and then he and one of us ride in the other cause it only seats two people. This last time I went with him and it was SO. MUCH. FUN. I didn’t realize it would be borderline mudding, but it was, and it was awesome. There was a bridge that had water covering it and we would go right on that and water would go EVERYWHERE. It was tons of fun 😂😂

Phew, that was a long-ish post. I need to start doing more of these “life updates” instead of just putting them off and making a huge post lol That’s all for today. Thanks for reading!
