More Moving, More Painting, More Housewarming

Two weeks ago, we were in Bangkok and Bali... followed by a week of jet lag.

A few things on our packing list that we'll need for our wedding in September:

This week, we’re organizing and cleaning the house at full force because we have family coming over for Alex’s brother’s wedding this weekend!

After spending Saturday morning renting a U-haul to move the last of Alex’s things out of his mom’s house, we unloaded it in our garage and then mustered up the energy to paint the guest bedroom.

Then at night, Leslie and Matt came over with Rhys for a steak dinner. Since we were also dogsitting Charlie, we had a new record of 4 dogs in the house!


On Sunday, my coworkers/friends Rachel and Léna came over for lunch: homemade kalbi, kimchi fried rice, dumplings and noodles, and cheese corn.

Then we got our ears pierced! Because it will be too hot and humid to wear a necklace comfortably in Bali, I plan to wear earrings to balance out the look. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for the past 6 months, and it was the perfect time to finally get it done!

Tonight, we need to hand-wash the sofa covers and blanket (we don’t have a washer/dryer and it’s full of dog fur), put the mattress and sheets in place in the guest bedroom, and start priming the guest closets. I don’t think we’ll have time to apply a coat of paint on top of it, but we’re happy as long as the icky stains are covered up.
