The apartment

Well, I don't have photos yet since we won't have our keys until we sign the lease on Thursday (I can't wait, it's so soon!), but I thought I would post the layout of our new apartment.
I'm pretty excited about moving and I've been busy the past week looking at furniture and trying to decide where to put everything in the new place.  We are definitely going to build a bar to separate the kitchen from the living room.  But that's about all that we have decided on so far...other than that we can't entirely seem to agree on where to put everything and on what new furniture to buy.  All I know is, this move is going to be very expensive with agency fees, paying extra rent for the month since we have to pay for our current apartment and half the month in our new apartment, the security deposit, building a kitchen, and the other furniture we want/need.  It's going to put a serious dent in our savings accounts.

Then, in the next few months (when it starts getting nice) we plan to get a table for the garden, a barbeque, vegetable plans, and the cat!!!

Lionel's parents are coming up next weekend and staying for a week to help us with shopping, building, cleaning and moving.  We also have some friends who are willing to help, so hopefully the move goes smoothly.  We also have two weeks to move, so it should be okay, though I would rather do it as quickly as possible to get out of this horrible place!


  1. Looks like a great floor plan! Have fun decorating. That's my favorite part :)

  2. I know, I'm looking forward to the decorating! I love it! But more than anything, I just can't wait to get out of my current apartment! Only two more days till I have the keys!

  3. I'm popping in with a wee hello while I am still visiting my friend in Antibes to wish you the best of luck with getting everything accomplished! It looks like you had a great time watching the Super Bowl, too. Fun, fun!!

    Take care and I hope all goes well. :)
