Our New Apartment

Well with some very gentle reminders from my mother [thank you], I am updating all of you on our moving experience. It's our first move since we've been married. So here are some pictures of us packing up our old place.
This was still before we had packed a bunch of stuff. It was kind of in the last stages though, and when I was starting to freak out and wonder if I was going to get it all packed in time to move out.







And now for the new place!!!!
[Please excuse the messes.]
It is a basement apartment. However, when you're in it, it doesn't really seem like a basement because the ceilings are high and the rooms are pretty large! :)

So, we walk downstairs. :)
On the left we have our living room.
Here's the view from the door.

Here's the other side of the room.

Here's the back of the room. You can see the door over there that leads to our GIANT storage room.

If you had turned to the right, there is our kitchen. Bonnie and Chase and their family pretty much made our entire kitchen from scratch. When we first saw it, it was absolutely nothing, and so it's REALLY nice and all the appliances are SUPER awesomely nice! They totally hooked us up!

Back behind the fridge you can see the entrace to our pantry.

LOOK AT THAT DISHWASHER!!!!!!
Here is the second bedroom. It's small, but very functional now that we don't have to store everything in it!
[Please excuse the paper mess. I'm working on a project at the moment and I enjoy working on the floor rather than on a table.]
Yes, those are mirrors on the ceiling! haha! They really aren't that noticable, but I must say that it is a cool little touch that I very much enjoy.
Then there is a tiny hallway that has the bathroom. It is much smaller than our last one, but it's a bathroom that is functional and very nice!

Here is our bedroom! It's GIANT compared to our last one. Our bed and both the dressers fit in it, with room to spare!!! It's awesome! And there are lights behind that little ledge up above the head of the bed.

Also, since this is an old house, they have these really cool closets that have drawers too. There's one like this in the spare room too.


Also, while we were moving, we finally have something to compare the size of Steve's card collection to. OUR TRUNK! And this isn't even all of them!!! Besides all these, there are FOUR bins of other cards. It's somewhat ridiculous. But he think's my scrapbook stuff is silly, so it all works. :)

I hope you enjoyed your tour of our new place!
