We only brought necessities when we first got here and spent May and June making numerous trips to Utah to move all of our stuff and clean our apartment. It's been a whirlwind and we're relieved that we're all out and done with the old apartment. We even got our whole deposit back! Woo hoo! HUGE thanks to my awesome family who spent a ton of time moving and cleaning our Utah apartment! I only got a picture of the moving crew (and not even all of them- Jay and CD joined the next trips' movers) but my mom and sisters helped me SO much by cleaning too.
HUGE thanks also to CD's family and friends who helped us unload in Idaho and who are continuing to help us get our new place finished. And I'm SO grateful to my mom and dad for hauling the trailer up to Idaho twice to move us. We stopped at produce stands along the fruit highway and at the Brigham City LDS Temple to make the trips more fun, but I'm sure it was still a big sacrifice for them!

|Jake and Carson were a big help! :)|
|Okay, maybe Jake helped a bit more than Carson, but Carson's sure a cutie!|
|Mom insisted on taking a "Moving Day" picture of us- so here we are sporting our moving day clothes in front of our new place.|
Because we're completing an addition to CD's parent's house, all of CD's extra time is spent working on it. We finished the bedroom, so that's exciting... we painted it gray and I love it!
Next up is the kitchen and we bought red paint for the kitchen and it's almost ready for that step! CD's dad and friends have been AWESOME helping us get it done, but it's a long process! Can't wait to get it done and be able to unpack all of our stuff.
Other than the above, I've been trying to find things to entertain myself as an insomniac in a small town, so I've been organizing a recipe spreadsheet, working on my karaoke lists, and learning/relearning to crochet. It's always a good thing when a room in the addition gets to paintable state because then I can help with the addition (I don't really know how to do anything but paint).
So overall, life in Idaho is good! I'm looking forward to our plans for the rest of the summer now. :)
