Another apartment update.

Man, radio silence on the blog, amiright?

I promise, I have not forsaken you. I’ve just been busting my behind trying to get another corner of the apartment presentable to show you.

Here’s some of the progress we made last week:

1. Emptying TONS of boxes. Seriously, folks. We’re down to the last 11, and I have high hopes that we’ll get down to two or three by the end of next weekend. (Joey is out of town, which means I can spend all my time organizing.)(Is it weird that that thrills me?)

2. Ordered a couch! We finally made it out to IKEA and ordered this little baby:

He’ll arrive in about two weeks. At which point we will stop sitting on the floor. For the most part.

3. Built a kitchen pantry. I really should have take a picture of this, but the kitchen is still a bit too cluttered to show off. But the pantry is awesome. So much storage space!

4. Organized the bar area:


Priorities, people.

5. Added a bar to Joey’s closet so he can finally hang up his clothes, along with a slew of other bedroom organization.

6. Emptied my closet of a few more things I never wear.

7. Started hanging pictures! Here’s our new baby gallery wall:


I’m sure there were a few more little things along the way, but those are the ones I’m most excited about.


Plus, I’m still in love with our neighborhood and have been exploring it more and more. Look how pretty it looks in the sunshine:


Ok, so maybe it’s still a lot of concrete. But the trees are finally getting green!

So this was a boring post unless you’re as excited about my home as I am. What did YOU do this weekend?

  1. Oh wow, love the pics… That couch is awesome. Mr MB and I seem to have very very different tastes on couches. I’m all about the look and awesomeness of it, go figure he wants it to be functional, geez!!! We spent the weekend without sunshine. Did have an awesome baby shower with my family though!!! Good luck on the unpacking! -Hang in there!

  2. Yay for 11 boxes left! I totally know the feeling. We had just finished (two months later…) and my parents came this weekend with the rest of my stuff. AGH it’s never ending! We’ll get there eventually, right?! Love seeing the sneak peeks – can’t wait to see more! Happy organizing while the hubby is away. 🙂

  3. I love your updates and pics! Can’t wait to see everything once it’s all come together!

    • Aw thanks! I seriously can’t wait for the couch to arrive. Sitting on the floor isn’t cute anymore.
