Welcome to our New Pad!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

As promised – here is a short tour of new apartment – well the highlights.  Once all of our stuff gets here (in a month-ish – fingers crossed!!!!) things will start to look like home, but until then…  welcome to our casa. 

First, let’s start with the closet.  Yes, I think I heard a chorus of angels in the background the first time I walked in – wouldn’t you?!  And this picture is just part of it! Keep in mind we’re coming from Old Town Alexandria (not Texas!!!) – where space does not exist. 

Next, let me introduce you to another one of my favorite – well the most intriguing area of the house.  Our glassed in toilet.  
Snazzy, eh? I have never felt like a museum exhibit before, but hanging out in here I feel like I should have a plaque, something that reads… 
Girl on Toilet – 2011; Artist Anon. 
Hey, every home needs a good conversation piece – mine just so happens to be the toilet!

And now, welcome to my cocina. Check out that 5 burner stove, and the cabinet and countertop space!  I am itching for all of my kitchen stuff to get here so I can cook up a storm.  I’m thinking a goat cheese + beet salad, cream of pumpkin soup, braised beef short ribs, roasted veggies, and pot au creme for dessert. (I know, sans job I have a lot more time these days to daydream!) 

Last but not least (for now) is our living room.   Comphy, spacious, open –  I’m picturing a lot of xbox Kinect being played in this room!!! 
Hope you enjoyed your tour; I’ll invite you back for more once I get things set up!
