What's The First Thing You Unpack?

This past weekend was chilly and overcast in Kansas City. A perfect weekend for moving! My husband and I packed up all of our stuff and headed downtown to our new loft. It's a very raw space just waiting for construction projects and the execution of "crazy loft ideas". So look for a new installment of Adventures in Loft Living each day this week as I have lots of fun "stuff and things" to discuss with all of you! Click through the jump to see what the first thing we unpacked was and share with us your immediate moving necessities.

The first thing unpacked any time we move is the stereo. Without it the daunting thoughts of unpacking are almost too much to handle. But with a little (and shameless) ABBA on your side, no job is too big!
We also made a point to bring in something fresh into our new space to help bring a little cheer amidst the mountainous cardboard boxes and piles of things. One small vase of flowers sits in our last window to soak up the constant southern sun.

What's the first thing you unpack (besides toilet paper!) when you move? Do you pack a "first day kit" to survive on in case you something unexpected happens? Let us know below!
