I am so excited to move in with my boyfriend next week! Though our space isn't our absolute dream space, it's still a great little launching point for us and I am excited to make it really feel like it is ours. I love that it is just a block away from a lake within the city and I love that the apartment building has a rooftop deck with a grill. Nature and a feeling of freedom in the place that I live are really important to me and I feel like the location of our apartment gives me easy opportunity to feel close to nature within the city, giving me that sense of freedom.
I'm really excited to start collecting items for our space too! Today, Max and I scanned Fab.com to see if we could find anything that would suit our space and we picked out a few great things that I'm excited to use. Everything we picked is useful and good lookin' :) Here are some goodies we picked up from Fab today!
picnic basket with all of it's goodies inside to the edge of the lake with Max and our friends for a sunset dinner! Max is a really really good baker so he'll definitely put that rolling pin to work with some pie making. Woohoo! I think the wine glasses are really unique and fun, so I ordered 4 along with special coasters so when they rest in the coasters, they don't roll around. And last but not least, isn't that cheese platter so dang pretty? If you've read my blog for awhile, you've probably picked up on how much I love the look of raw natural materials like raw wood and crystals. Eek, I'm excited to have some wine and cheese parties :)
The most exciting new update on our apartment is... some of our best friends are moving in on the floor below us! I'm so excited. Our friends Booker (Jonathan) and Haley just got engaged a few days ago too which is pretty dang precious and they just decided yesterday to live in our same apartment building! I lived with Booker a few years ago and then Max has lived with Booker the past 2 years so it will be great to still have Booker and Haley just a step away. Conveniently, Booker works about two blocks away from the apartment and right now, Max is on his third interview to work for the same company as Haley. We will see how it all pans out! Wish him luck! I'm excited to have weekly craft nights with Haley and I'm sure the boys will end up playing video games together all the time. You can't take the kids out of the adults. We'll try and balance it out our inner kid times with grown up wine and cheese nights with our fun new stuff!
