5 on Friday



Happy Friday ya'll! 
It's time for another 5 On Friday link up with April and Co.!

It's been a crazy roller coaster of craziness kinda week so for my 5 I thought I would discuss:
 The 5 Things I Learned This Week
(in no particular order)


1. It is not mandatory to clean your house for months before you sell it to new owners (apparently). 
We closed on our house in Maine on Wednesday and headed straight over there to meet electricians, painters and to get our hands on that baby..........and we were shocked. It appears that the sellers have done absolutely zero upkeep since we started the offer process. I'm super into organization and everything being in its place but let's be honest, I haven't given anything in my house a good bleaching in a while...but come on! I literally did not want to walk around barefoot...and I set us up in the guest bathroom because we didn't pack shower shoes....which would be required to shower in our master bath. Gross.

P.S. I swear it did not look like this when we put on offer on it....

Are you there Molly Maids? It's me, Stephanie!

2.  We aren't moving just quite yet....
We got word from the relocation company that our "Household Goods" move has been pushed from this coming week to the week of July 15th. That may not seem like long to some people, but seeing as the only thing in the Maine house is an air mattress and a shower curtain, we kinda would like to get our stuff. I also am in love with the term "Household Goods"...it makes me giggle....I wish they would just call a spade and spade and call it the "all the crap in your house, including your dog" move.

3. Super weird/surprisingly entertaining things happen in our new hometown
Last night Justin and I went to dinner in Downtown Bangor and we saw this:
Justin said I needed a pair of those gold leggings.
Uh, good luck with that. 


We think it was some sort of practice/training ground for performers (because what else does one do on a curb on a nice Thursday evening?) and who could not stop and watch that?
 I used precious Wine Time to stare/Instagram....that's saying something! 

4. Bride Body vanishes quickly
Yaaaaaaa'll...I miss my Bride Body! I know it's completely my fault that it's gone, but can I just have a girl moment?? In order to get into that dress (and sans Spanx might I add!), I spent many a month at Pure Barre in Greenville and I.Loved.It. I would highly recommend it...but after the 2 week Honeymoon and then all this not having a home business (and maybe all the wine and bread), things have quickly gone South. And not the good kind of South...we're not talking monograms and sun hats South....let's just say I would prefer to rock a one piece with a muumuu these days that one of my Honeymoon bikinis. 

5. My husband reads the blog!
Ok, get this! My Husband, who I am pretty sure doesn't listed to 99.9% of the things I say (I arrived at this very scientific calculation by remembering the number of times I have told him something veeeeery important and then 20 mins later he asked me about said topic as if we were discussing it for the first time. MEN!) let it slip yesterday that he reads Newlyweds:North. 
The convo went a little something like this:

 S: (blabbering on about something veeeeery important)
j: (super serious face) "I know Stephanie, I read your blog."
S: (mouth falls open)

That kid surprises me at every turn!

P.S. I think he reads the blog to make sure my shit talking about him is kept to a minimum, but I choose to chalk it up to being a Supportive Husband. 
Yay, Marriage!

xoxox,

S
