We’ve got some serious moving in progress going on. We’re not sure when we’ll be able to check in again (heck, we’re not even sure what time we’re closing this afternoon- assuming it doesn’t get bumped to Tuesday) but we’ll stop in with more pics and info as soon as we can.
Until then cross your fingers that my ceramic animal menagerie makes it to the new house in one piece and that we actually get to move in this afternoon as planned. We do plan to post some empty house pics of our first home (we figure you guys need closure just as much as we do) and of course share pics and even a quick video tour of the new house all empty and Petersik-ready when we finally get a moment and have internet access again.
Let the adventure/chaos/tears/joy/excitement/insanity begin!
Psst- Check out Clara’s weekly picture (also snapped on the packing box background) here.

LOVE IT CLARA! Great to add to your weekly pictures. Good luck wit the move..fingers are crossed.
Ahhh! So exciting and stressful! Can’t wait to see pics of the new place :) Good luck and I hope everything goes smoothly.
Congratulations!! It must be such a bittersweet day for yall! You will probably be very tired very soon but it will all be worth it! I know what you are going through – my husband and I are just finishing our move to our new home and I am ready for it to all be done with!
Katie G says
Good luck today!!
I’m like at the EDGE of my seat!!! Does anybody else feel me out there? :)
Kati at sohappyhome.com says
Good luck with the rest of your day/move/sleep, etc. We’ll see you on the other side.
Lindsay B says
Yay! Can’t wait to see pics of the new place!
So, have you seen the Friends episode where Joey buys that huge white ceramic dog? Sherry, I think of you every time I see that episode. I’ll be praying for your little white critters. :)

Good Luck! What an ADORABLE picture :)
Good luck with the move! It’s a really exciting time- even through all the stress of it! I cross all fingers that all goes well, for you guys and your menagerie…
Congrats, John & Sherry! And good luck for a smooth and on-time closing this afternoon! I’ll miss the old house, but I’m SO looking forward to what y’all have in store for the new one. :)
I hope this snow doesn’t get in the way of your move today! FYI..Richmond got 2 inches of snow this morning!
Fingers crossed! GL!

when my hubby and i were driving to work this morning, i gasped and said ‘oh no, the petersiks are moving today – i hope the snow doesn’t slow them down!’
he, of course, said ‘who are the petersiks?’ but i was very concerned! hope today goes well for you ;)
Good luck, I’ll be waiting the news and for the first house pics, I’m so excited too ;)
Such a cute picture! Good luck with move!
Good luck guys! Can’t wait to see the new house! YAY!
Angelica L. says
I’m so excited for you! I have my fingers crossed that you’re in the new Casa Petersik TODAY!
Hang in there! Been thinking about you guys all day! I had to say goodbye to my childhood home when I was 14…such a bittersweet day and I cried the entire first night in our new house in which my sweet mother offered to take me at 2 am to drive by! A memory I’ll never forget…but the new house will soon become home. Have fun and soak it in!
can’t wait to see the new place! Petersik fam vs mid-century ranch, Round 2- ding!
That might be the cutest picture ever! Clara looks so happy to be moving.
Good luck with everything! I hope it goes smoothly!
Heather Thiel says
Holding my breath that all goes smoothly today! Although (having recently closed myself) even a closing that comes after un-smoothness is pretty darn awesome. Best wishes!
WOO HOO! okay.. and clara is so awesome.
Good Luck! What an exciting adventure, can’t wait to see the new digs.
Good luck! You’re in the home stretch now :)
Hang in there – you’re SO CLOSE!
Seriously, the anticipation is killing me. This is even better than Christmas. Can’t wait to see everything!!!! Good luck today!! And for the coming days of unpacking!
Blog is the New Black says
Love the pic!
Good luck! I hope everything goes smoothly!
Hope everything goes smoothly for you guys! Can’t wait to see pictures of the new place!
Congrats! I’m having an icky day (strep throat going around our house) so I am glad that you are (I hope) having a super day!
Thinking good thoughts for a successful closing today and move into your new home.
(Is it really sad that I just checked into a hotel in Philadelphia and my first thought was to see if there were any updates about your closing? No? I thought not.)
Cait @ Hernando House says
Hope everything goes smoothly today! Can’t wait for pictures, details, etc!
Kristina @ spabettie says
aw, the CUTEST photo!! :)
I hope the move goes smoothly and birds are intact!
Snickrsnack Katie says
Wow, I hope you get to close today on your house! That would really suck if you don’t. Sending good vibes!
Aww guys! Good luck! Can’t wait to see the pics of the new house and see, sadly, what your cute little old house looks like empty!
Good luck. And dont forget to photoshop the week number on Clara’s onesie when you get computer access again!
Haha! From the Facebook thumbnail, “Move In Progress” looked like “More I’m Pregnant”
Mel V. says
Good luck! I hope one moving box gets a small tear in its side, and that’s the worst thing that happens all day.
Jenn L @ Peas and Crayons says
aside from the invisible mustache picture… this one is my favorite!!!!! <3
Best of luck x100001
Get some relaxing in while you're at it! I'm sure you guys will make moving fun =)
Congrats on the new place! So excited for you guys!!!
Ummm….been checking back all afternoon to see if there was any update! I feel all teary and excited and jitery for you! And SOOOOOO jealous! We both listed our homes at the same time, and we’re still waiting for someone to fall in love with our place! :-(
CONGRATS GUYS! I seriously feel so overjoyed for you!
Happy Moving day!!!!
best of luck! Will be waiting anxiously for the next post!!
What a big day this is!! Congratulations! I can’t wait to see the new digs!
My husband and I will be moving soon, too. Always such a tiring ordeal and it gets more difficult the older you get and the more stuff you have!
good luck!! wishing you a quick and easy closing.
You’re so close!!! My fingers are crossed and I’m looking forward to pictures! Good luck!
Is it strange to you that an entire group of people are virtually moving with you? I’m checking in periodically to see how the progress is going and apparently i’m not the only one! I feel much better about it now. I hope the closing goes smoothly. Keep us posted. Good luck!
That pic of Clara teething on blue painters tape is a riot!
brandt @ New House on the Blog says
AIEEEEEEEE here’s sending positive closing vibes your way!
Good luck on a smooth closing! Rub that little baby’s head for good luck!!!!
