Happy Monday everyone! Are you lucky enough to have today off work? I’m not, but after the weekend I had, I can’t really complain.  My parents visited Friday and Saturday to bring us the rest (well pretty much all) of our wedding gifts and a few pieces of furniture for the apartment. Then Sunday Carl and I did some shopping for decor items since we still had gift cards that hadn’t been used.

I’m so excited because the apartment is finally coming together.  We’ve hung some pictures and only have a few more boxes to unpack.  It’s looking so beautiful! The benefit to not having a home for a few months is it has us extra motivated to decorate.  We have more pictures hung within the first week than I had hung in the entire year I was in my last apartment.

Once all the boxes are finally unpacked I will take photos of each room, but for now I thought I would give you a sneak peek with all the terrible phone pictures I have so far.  The photos below show our entryway, dining room and desk in our guest room/craft room.  They also show some of the decor we bought this weekend.  I can’t wait to show you all the final product!

Aren’t those photos just terrible?  I can’t wait to take nice well-lit photos that actually do justice to the awesomeness that is our apartment.  Also, aren’t those lamps to die for? I can’t believe we found them are Marshall’s for less than any lamp in Target.

Unpack all the boxes.  I mean, we’re aren’t officially done moving until all the boxes are unpacked.

Sew something.  I finally learned how to use my sewing machine, so it’s time to put it to use.  I’m supposed to make a quilt at work this week for the blog, so hopefully I don’t mess up.

No soda. I did great last week avoiding coke but got off track with my parents here and going out to dinner a lot.  I should be ok this week though without all the restaurant temptation.


  • No soda is such a great goal! I had a week moment and had a Coke last weekend, but I try to avoid them too.

    The sewing machine! The blue clock! The framed floral pictures! I love it!!

    I love the blue lamps and your welcome sign! Good luck with your wishes!! What are you going to sew??

  • Love the welcome sign!!! Good luck with no soda! I’m luck that I have never like sodas but I do love iced tea.

  • These lamps are SO precious. We moved to a new house 6 months ago but there still are so many boxes to be unpacked. Moving can be a mess. Ugh 🙁

  • ALL THOSE STIENS. I want all those steins. And your sewing machine. Ok, I want your whole apartment thus far.
