I'll be honest. The only fun thing about moving is being DONE with moving. We moved 3 bedrooms- well, one bedroom, 2 offices- and over 110 boxes. The picture to the left is just a small portion of the boxes at the new place in the living room. It was 5 high and 5 deep. Today, 6 days later there are 2 boxes left. We rocked it but let me say again, the only FUN part of moving is being done. My office still looks like a bomb went off. Hopefully by the end of the weekend it will be settled. :-)
For the most part, we are settled in. The new shelves came Thursday so I was able to finish unpacking the kitchen and I made dinner for us last night for the first time since we moved last Sunday- filet mignon and pierogis with sautéed sweet onions (Thank you, +FreshDirect for always amazing meat!) I had 4 oz of cooked meat, one tiny bite at a time, 2 tablespoons of onions and the filling of 2 pierogis- about 2 tablespoons. Each perfect bite was a delicious treat.
|The stove top is gas, not quite full size like a range but it works. I have yet to use the oven.|
|The windows look out onto a courtyard of the apartment building next door- |
no one is ever out there but there is a beautiful tree that the birds love- we have already seen a cardinal.
|New shelves from +Williams-Sonoma (FANCY!)|
|All the china made it in one piece- the Giger's are going to go on the wall here.|
|+Cynthia Rowley towels (I also have a lot of her clothing- her plus size stuff is fantastic, can't wait to buy her off the rack pieces:-)|
|Dollar store jar with ribbon from the wash cloths I bought. Thank you super glue.|
I decided to put up this photo we have in the bathroom as well. It is beautiful and ties everything together.
