First Grown-up Apartment

I told you I would be extremely busy and not be able to post for a while- however I didn’t know that it would be this long! SHEEEEEESH sorry to all! ๐Ÿ™‚ SOOO- ย what a week I just had as well. Moved into my new big girl apartment- started my new job and I’m not sure that I’ve ever appreciated a weekend this much before! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really really realllllly like my new job so far. I mean the first week is always a little boring at times because I’m training and not really able to do things on my own yet- or feel comfortable doing them alone but I already feel so much for confident in my understanding of the complex world that is employee benefits! I love it.

So, while in Chicago I went to Ikea, spent $300 bucks-but it felt like I got so much more! haha, got awesome duvet and pillow case covers for the guest room and the master, 3 lamps, large picture for the wall, vase-rocks-and decorative bamboo shoot, wine glasses, 18 piece tupperware set, cutting boards,lantern for the porch, ย fake potted plant, pantry organization thingy wingy, coffee table and I’m sure I’m missing some stuff but that was the majority. Here is a picture I took while headed into the cheap home goods heaven!


Here is a picture of the coffee table I got- I absolutely love it and thought it was a great deal- but Jake said it was way too girly, pshhhh oh well- still like it ๐Ÿ™‚


So yeah, needless to say, I am still unpacking and getting our apartment organized- It is hard for me to do all at once because I – well actually I’m not sure why, but it is a process for me and I go slowly- but we have a bed to sleep on, a table to sit at, and OH! Jake and I also went out and bought a TV!!!!!!!!! ย We had been talking about it for quite sometime but finally just saw a great deal and went and got it- so we have a gorgeous big tv(with no cable yet, haha but we watch some O.C. a few nights of the week- side note: The O.C. is and forever will be my favorite show of all time). So yeah. That is my life currently. I PROMISE, PINKY PROMISE that when everything is situated I’ll be doing more craft and food posts! My sewing craft list is a mile long and I am obsessed with cooking so my recipes to try list is always long. Stay tuned for fun stuff to come and thank you all for reading and supporting my blog!



ps: HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all you mothers out there! Hope you are appreciated, loved and thanked every day-not just this Sunday.
