Crazy Weekend

This weekend we had an open house in an attempt to start to sell our stuff. It was a huge success, but left us exhausted. Poor Mr. Milk has to be at work today for a board meeting too. All that is left to sell is the bed, kitchen table and chairs, a swivel chair, and coffee table. The rest is just small things, like frames, plants, phones, that we can give away if they don't sell. We had people coming from 11am till about 6.30pm. The apartment looks so different, so bare. Sigh. I don't think either of us will be wanted to spend too much time in here over the next couple of weeks. 


Ironically, we invited a friend over for a bbq to celebrate his birthday, and the first thing that sold was the bbq! Smart huh!? Luckily our building has one in the communal garden that we were able to use. We'll keep posting until everything is gone. We have two more weeks so hopefully we'll be able to sell what's left.


On a brighter note, the bridesmaid's dresses arrived and I picked them up Friday evening! They look great! I love all the colors. I'll take some pics and post them soon for you all to see. 


Hope you all had good weekends!

I forgot how much I love your bridesmaid dresses! They're fabulous!! I'm glad you had a good weekend.. I hope you find some time to relax this week!! :)

Congrats on the sale! I remember that empty apartment feeling and yes, it is kind of a bummer to hang around a place that isn't really homey feeling anymore. Just think of how much fun it will be to shop for your new place though!

And YAY for the bridesmaid dresses coming in!

Wow! Great job managing all the stress and chaos of selling your furniture and getting ready to move. I’m glad the dresses came in and snuck a little fun into your busy schedule. They’re going to look so amazing on the wedding day!

Poor Mr. Milk. The BBQ was the one item he really didn't want to part with and the first one to go! =(

I sold a ton of furniture on Craigslist when Mr Fix It and I were consolidating for our move. Still have one huge entertainment center I can't get rid of :( Hopefully the rest of your stuff goes quickly...not sure if they have a Craigslist type site there in Canada but I highly recommend it!

And yea for BM dresses! I can't wait to see them on the girls!
