Our New Crib

By popular demand. Here’s a little mini-tour of our private resort temporary apartment. We’ll be staying here for 60 days or as long as we can trick Kevin’s company into footing the bill while we hunt for housing. It was tricky to take pictures because, you know, it’s a one-bedroom, but I did my best for you.

Obviously I’m going to lead with the kitchen! The appliances are gorgeous and the countertop definitely rivals our old house in Winona! I just wish I had all my dishes and baking supplies here!

I was happy to find that it definitely has adequate kitchen supplies. The only SERIOUS thing it’s missing is a cookie sheet. I guess most high-powered executives don’t make chocolate chip cookies on Friday mornings!

Aren’t they cute? A little pasta basket + some Starbucks coffee! My ever-so-wise husband said,”Oh well, it’s not whole wheat pasta, but at least we can use the sauce sometime!”

The couches are cozy!

I couldn’t believe there were two tvs in a one-bedroom apartment! More bathrooms than bedrooms = awesome!! More tvs? Not so much!

Dinner for two! :)

King size sleigh bed!!!!!!!!!

Sweet closet! I couldn’t show the whole thing, but let’s just say it’s almost as big as the second bedroom upstairs in our old house because it goes deeper both directions. Hooray!

I’m thrilled we have a washer/drier because workout clothes get smelly FAST!

Spacious bathroom for my bathroom hog!

And now for my FAVORITE amenity!

A night light! I love it. The apartment also offers a lovely pool and more importantly, A GYM! I’ll share some of those details with you later, but I’ve had so many request for photos I thought I’d share. It’s a HUGE complex, but it’s super silent. In fact, I said to Kevin today that I thought it might be haunted since we’ve hardly seen anybody in the hallways! We agreed that’s impossible because it’s too new. Haha. The location is absolutely fabulous within easy walking distance to Kevin’s office. We totally feel like we’re on vacation. Probably moreso me than Kevin since he has to go to work!!

Time to start applying for jobs! :)

My Dream Chairs

Okay. I’ll admit that might be a bit of a stretch because I had NO IDEA that I had dream chairs until I came across these today on decor8.

I’ve been a lifelong fan of mismatched style chairs. À la Friends:

These are like the 2011 Etsy version! Available on from namedesignstudio.

You just have to pay to ship them from Turkey. No biggie! We were looking to update from the bachelor futon, right Kevin James?

In other news, my bread pudding went over famously at the bridal shower. A little too famously. I only took home one piece which I promptly devoured while standing at the kitchen counter.

This afternoon I ordered some baby gits and my future MIL’s birthday gift. I wish I could show them here because they are AWESOME, but my biggest stalker is one of the recipients…
