Movin’ on up: Kitchen Wishlist


One of the spaces I think that I will make the most additions to is our kitchen. It’s not in the budget to overhaul most of our furniture in other rooms but there are lots of less pricey items I can buy for the kitchen. I love cooking and this will be just the motivation for us to make healthier meals at home.

We’re moving on up…

FloorplanI am super excited to announce that we have found a new apartment, hooray! That’s one less thing to worry about , the only downside is that we are moving 5 days after we get back from France.  Terrible timing.

After another rent increase at our current complex, we decided to shop around. The decision was clear as soon as we found our new place: 18 ft vaulted ceilings, a 10×6 walk-in closet, 220 sq. ft more space, a garage and new flooring, cabinets, countertops and appliances. I can’t wait and I’ve been wanting a space to do some DIY projects so the garage will be perfect. And Robert is excited because it will fit an 80″ TV. I’m pushing for a 70″ and placing the couch a foot closer to the TV. Same difference right?

Now I can’t stop thinking about how the new place is going to look and unfortunately, the unit isn’t vacant until 9/26, while we will be on vacation and it will be undergoing renovations until our move-in date so we won’t get to see it before moving in. I have no idea what the space will actually feel like and what will fit in the space.

It’s Back To School time!

It’s been more years than I would like to admit since I’ve been in school, but even though September and the Fall really have no significant meaning to my anymore, I still get the urge to go out and buy all new school supplies. There’s something about getting brand new pens and fresh notebooks that makes me so excited. Instead of buying filler paper, pencils and crayons I use this time of year as an excuse to revamp my office set-ups, get fresh new supplies to help keep me organized. This year will be all about pretty things to keep me inspired and organized for my blog.
