This time next week, I will be a married woman just finishing dinner with my new husband and all of our closest friends and family! This year and a half has just FLOWN by! Apparently I'm falling apart though, because things just keep happening to me... On Friday, my wisdom tooth swelled up and so I'm on two different antibiotics, then I got a massive head cold, my nail got bent and bled (on my ring hand, too!) and then I broke my flip flop at the dog park today. I'm quite grateful that I caught my tooth and this cold this weekend and not next! I still have some crafting to do, but it's coming along nicely.
In the end, as long as I'm married to Rob, nothing else will matter.
It is such a pleasure to be guest blogging for my beautiful friend, Nicole, today about the wonders of apartment living. I recently moved out of my parent's home with my boyfriend, Nick, to a one bedroom apartment in the city. We've been enjoying our freedom and sense of independence for two months now and haven't been happier!
Don't get me wrong - living with a roommate has it's wonderful pros and it's questionable cons. For example, he believes that having a mess all over the floor means our apartment is "homely" so I get to do most of the cleaning. But on the other hand, getting breakfast in bed from time to time isn't half bad either! The trick to living happily together is: Never keep score no matter how much you want to, learn to share the room instead of dividing it, and always be willing to compromise. So it's been a give and take of sorts which has worked great for us.
As of right now, our apartment is halfway full with furniture but there's still a lot of empty walls and unfinished rooms so we've been really thinking about setting a weekend aside to shop for decorations, or make our own DIY projects. Here is a list of my favorite projects so far:
What are some of your favorite DIY's for the house? Thank you so much, Nicole, for having me! And thank you, lovely reader, for sticking by my ramblings. Come visit me at Horses of Ares to read more about my daily adventures and let's become blog buddies. Until next time, have a really wonderful week.
I totally haven't posted in 2 weeks! Holy cow! I've been so busy with work and getting ready for the wedding, which is now 23 days away. Also, tomorrow's my bridal shower! I am beyond excited for it. My best friend, and Maid of Honor, has been planning it and I couldn't be more thankful! I'll be sure to post a "What to Wear" for that, too. ;)
I ordered my veil yesterday and it should be arriving next week some time. More and more things are falling in to place. We have the DJ, Videographer, Photographer, Hair Stylist, Make up Artist, Caterer, Bartender, etc.! It's really hard to believe that it's already been a year and half since Rob proposed to me. The little guy up there is already going to be 6 months old on June 3, too!
