She is off to College!

It is official! Our daughter left on Friday for college. It was move in day, we spent 17 hours carrying boxes, unpacking, organizing, shopping, and decorating her dorm room. It was so much fun to watch her get all excited about all the stuff. I know she is going to be so happy there. We did go back on Sunday to take another load of things she forgot, but that was to be expected! I also decided I would make some cute little signs for her and her suite mates. So here are the pictures of them. The first 2 photos are of the same sign. I made it for their bathroom door so that if someone is in there you won't have to knock to find out, just look at the sign! They now want a Welcome sign for their front door. It is never ending!

So it is going to be a little strange at my house with only one child home, but I know that in a few weeks we will be use to it. My hubby is missing her just a bit, I thought I would be the one that missed her. Don't get me wrong, I do miss her but more than anything I am so excited for is a new adventure, one that I didn't get to continue so I am sure that is why I am more excited. It is funny to watch my hubby, he is kind of like a lost puppy dog and he is spending more time with me. Miranda was always his movie buddy, now Devon will have to become that!

Today I am meeting a friend to scrapbook! I am so happy, I need to take more days to do this because it is such a relaxing hobby for me! Unfortunately I don't have time every day to do it, plus since I don't have a designated craft room it makes it hard to get all of it out and then at the end of the day clean it all up. Maybe now that Miranda is gone I might think about making her room into a craft space!!! No can't do that, she will come home for visits!!! We just gotta move to a bigger house!! That won't be happening anytime soon!

Hopefully now that school is in for my son and my daughter is off to college things will settle down in my life. I already feel like the craziness is coming to an end. Hoping for good days ahead! I certainly need them!
