Boxes, Boxes everywhere!

Our things have finally arrived! Holy cow, I can't believe it! They actually came three days ago, but as you can imagine I have been a little busy. I really wanted to take a picture of all the mess in the house, but things have just been moving along so quickly, that I am about 3/4ths unpacked. I have a bedroom and the bathrooms left. I will try to post a picture of the disheveled bedroom, before it gets put together.

All in all I feel pretty darn good about how things are turning out. After almost a year of having our things stored I forgot what I actually had. It has been pleasant surprises in every box. There are a few things that I am tossing, but I don't feel like I am too much of a pack rat after all. My kitchen is prob the most loaded and I need to be careful about putting more in it. (Though, I secretly want another dish set, I know Ryan will kill me if I do!) My kitchen is my pride and joy! And I really LOVE all of my recipes! I can't even explain to you. I opened my personal recipe book last night and the page I opened to was a Banana crepe recipe. Let me just tell you, the first thing I did this morning was pull out the blender! I flippin love food! Ryan was in heaven and I told him this is just the beginning! The recipe was actually pretty good. It calls for rum, but as I don't normally carry that I just skipped it. I am sure it gives it a phenomonal taste and you lite it of course to get the alcohol out, but I am not sure on this recipe. I need to see how the alcohol cooks out with a sugar base. I know it varies according to the base. Nettie are you there? Do you know the answer to this? Or anybody else?
Anyways, would you like me to post it?

I am trying to be so much better about sharing my recipes, just nobody ask for the glorified choc chip recipe. I don't think I am that good yet. So, Laura, hush hush!:)

So, go figure this post started out about moving and ended with cooking. I am sure this will happen many more times. I have to go make dinner for Ryan, but I will post that recipe as soon as I can!
Much Love Everyone!
