Moving on up

My first night in my new home...I feel like I'm staying in a cluttered hotel sans the icky hotel smell. I'm exhausted but thrilled that I'm picking up internet (I know, I know, just for a little while). After a long day of moving, I am sitting on the couch in the kitchen with my two dogs who are equally as exhausted but can't relax b/c of all the new noises. How to relax:
If I had my teapot and mugs here, perhaps I would make some Valerian Root tea:

Then a bath with the super soothing bath salt I received for my birthday. The spearmint/eucalymptus formula is great for sore muscles or if you're just feeling icky.

Maybe a massage w/some "firming" oil?

And then it's off to sleep in my new, light blue bedroom (if only it looked like this)...

Any suggestions on how to relax?

Where is your new house?!

I find the hot bath, book and tea or... um wine, help the most with relaxing. I've been taking anywhere between 2 - 4 baths a week. I know its a waste of water, but my sanity has been more important! I use Kiss My Face Anti-Stress bath gel - its yummy.

Yeah! I need to remember this when I move into my new house in April!!! {reminder-pack box to open first for better 1st night sleeping with special treat for my dog}
maybe tonight, you can use a hot bath and a small glass of wine.

loving the colours of that bedroom!!
I hope you post images of your new home as you get settled in so we can see the transformation from new house to cosy home!

Tea and a bubble bath sounds perfect to relax!

Stretching! Stretching on my bedroom floor before bed always helps me go to sleep . . . that and red wine. ;)
