little miss lots-of-stuff

We finally have internet at the new place!
Yesterday Riley had to rerun the cable and in order to do so he had to go under the house. I again forgot to take a picture of him in his awesome jumpsuit but here is the picture of the hole he had to crawl into.

As he crawled under the house I walked above and talked to him to keep him company, and I just felt worried that he was under there. I felt like I was talking to a ghost or something.
If you look closely you can see our little Riley in there.

We've been staying at the new place since Thursday since we got a new bed! It's a queen size, which I've never had. Riley and I have been cozy & kicking each other on a full size bed for some time. I didn't know the difference until we decided to get a queen. It's amazing. I no longer push him off the bed!

And yes, that's a stool acting like a night stand on the side of our bed. I think that's what we'll stick with. We don't have a lamp and we only put our phones (which are our alarm clocks) on it.
Also, during the move, we had a fatality.
My old foam dress form that holds all my necklaces split in half!!

I can't decide what to do. I hate to trash her because I like her but she doesn't look good anymore. So I think I'll have to let her go, and I'm sad.

Last night Riley and I cleared out a lot of our boxes. We still have a few to go through but the home is becoming more livable and creating less headaches.

Oh and one more thing, mail comes around 5p here! WTH! I don't like that.


  1. Mail at 5? That sucks because you know how hard it is when you are waiting on ETSY mail!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the quilt on your bed.

  2. Aww I'm sorry for your foamy loss.

    It's a larger bed the best?! We have a king and I wouldn't have it any other way. LOL


  3. Queen beds are great! I love your quilt..did you make it? Love the stool as the nightstand...very functional:)

  4. I have a love/hate relationship with moving. On one hand, I'm a VERY good, efficient packer. On the other, I am TOO careful and can run out of time to pack. On one hand, I love seeing a place come together, and on the other, I have a nervous breakdown if anyone other than me tries to unpack anything *I* have packed.

  5. I love that quilt on your bed, too!

    Oh and the fatality? OHh nooo! Can you not squeeze her back shut and then stick the 2 pieces together somehow? A ton of hot glue? Ribbons? Can you wrap her completely so she stays shut? Maybe with a cool print or something.
    Ya gotta save her!

  6. hahahaah I would never go under the house! freak me out!!!

  7. O Noooooooooos! Sorry about yer foamalish busting in half. Maybe you can keep the front half and mount it somehow on a wall???

  8. I love your Bedspread/Quilt!! Wherever did you find it?

    Again, congrats on your new home!


  9. Yes I have much admiration for Mr. Riley! I would never climb under a house. All that comes to mind is BUGS and no way to get OUT fast and that just wouldn't be very cool :-/

    I'm so happy for the both of your and your lil cute face house! It looks great !
