All Moved In... Almost!

Why hello there!

It feels like it has been sooo long since I last posted. In reality it has only been 4 days, but we have accomplished a lot in those four short days.

We packed up our life in Colorado Springs, we fit it all into a trailer, and the back of a suburban/boneville.  We cleaned. Then we drove, and drove, and drove.

After ten and a half hours of driving, we made it to Rexburg. Then we unpacked the trailer in the wind and rain. At least it wasn't snow!

Then we unpacked the boxes [most of them].

The good news is, we have a spare bedroom. We are moving up in the world! We have only ever lived in one bedroom apartments, so the extra space is nice.

There are a few things I absolutely love about our new apartment. The first is window light. We have four windows! My favorite one is in the kitchen. I have never had a window in my kitchen before. I love the natural light coming in while I clean and cook. Plus we have a beautiful view of the temple from our bedroom window.

The second thing I love is the closet space. In our previous apartments, we have only had the one closet in our bedroom. I have a total of 5 closets in this apartment! It's amazing! Everything has a home :)

The only thing I don't like is the living room. It's a really weird space. No matter how I arrange the furniture, it looks funny. The room is too long and skinny.

Also: the apartment has a washer and dryer included at no extra cost. Praise the heavens and all that is holy! I actually enjoy doing laundry now that I don't have to haul it across the city to Erica's house slash up the hill at our old complex.

Sorry, this post probably sounds like an advertisement for our apartment, but I just want you all to know that I'm falling in love with my apartment. No big deal.

:)

Oh you want to see some pictures? Okay, here you go! See what I mean about the window light:



I'm actually really excited to be back in Rexburg, nasty cold wind and all. School starts tomorrow, and I have a feeling it's going to be a great semester! Wish me luck :)
