new apartment

Friday, October 5, 2012

New digs in Chicago. We are signing papers tomorrow. I feel like a real adult for a variety of reasons.

1. They had to do a credit check.
2. We made a financially smart decision.
3. I start my new job new Monday.
4. Michael will have his own office space.
5. We have a dishwasher people. A brand spanking new one.

Can't wait to get started with decorating. Ikea anyone? It's on the agenda for tomorrow. Something about a blank slate that is so appealing. I was initially thinking white with touches of black and gold, but as it turns out our living room is gray and our kitchen is white. I am not so sure if that particular color scheme is going to fly. I am currently scouring Pinterest for ideas.

Do you have any favorite home decor looks? I would love to see them. Please share links in the comments!

  1. That was quick!! Congrats, and it's cute too!

  2. i can't wait to see what you do with it!!

  3. ooooh new apartments and new jobs are fun!! COngrats on your adult lives :) It's funny-I still feel like a 16 year old in a 23 year old body. But growing up is fun right?? Scary and terrifying, but fun. Your place looks awesome!
