It's been a busy twenty days since my last post, but I'm here now and ready to tell you about it!
We officially moved last Sunday. It did not go as I planned, but we were lucky enough to have a ton of family and friends help us with all of the heavy lifting. There was a lot of last minute b.s. packing so I am finding weird things together in boxes like crafting stuff and cleaning supplies or a lamp and half my clothing. Hopefully I can get a handle on it this week.
I spent last week cleaning out the old house and I have learned three things: The next time we move I should hire a maid to clean and movers to move our crap, we will never rent/buy a house with stairs again because vacuuming them sucks (the vacuum kept wanting to jump to it's death), and laminate or wood floors are the way to go in the whole house besides the bedrooms.
I've also had a bit of a winning streak this past month. I told you about my first win here, but there's more! I also won a $25 gift card to Whole Foods from The Coupon Challenge, the shirt of the day from ShirtPunch, and a $150 gift card for Eating Evolved truffles from the Civilized Caveman. This is exciting because I've never really won anything before except a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure from a contest held by a local TV station when I was 10. So I think I'm set on winning for the next 20 years!
In crafting news I am currently working on a cross stitch piece for my bestie/wifey, Marcy. I am also in a sea creature swap, a three tiny movie things swap, and a Wizard of Oz swap on Craftster. I will post pictures as soon as I have some pieces finished!

What $150 in truffles looks like. The flavors I chose were macadamia nut, coconut, cherry cabernet, choco mint, and bacon! I will be sharing these with my family on Easter.
