We spent our Friday night at Macys, Aurhaus, and West Elm to kick off the furniture search! It’s fun, but totally overwhelming. Too many decisions for an indecisive girl.
This husband is a true try-it-outer:
And here are the top favs that caught our eye. Still pondering what we want (couch or sectional, leather or fabric, etc.) and what other stores to visit.
Costco toilet paper doesn’t fit
There is built-in desk, complete with a pull-out mousepad, in the living room
There is this (creepy) cartoon named Ziggy living in our basement. The rainbow is quite the bonus.
Morning runs in the neighborhood, which three days in a row consisted of using my iPhone to find my way back. I may have no sense of direction…
Scenes from our moving process. Love knowing that we won’t be going through this for years to come!!
Goodbye westend, city lights, and highway noise.
The best way to transport a closet: duct taped hangers. I learned this lesson from my sister years ago.
While we were packing, this generous little bro power cleaned all our carpet. Thanks brotha Ky!!
1 uhaul, a hard working husband, 2 unseen strong college boys (thank you again Kyle), a trusty cart, and many stairs in between, we moved our one bedroom apartment in the truck!
Once we arrived at the house, we had the uhaul unpacked in no time! Thanks mama and pops for all the help and a much needed lunch!
And the rest of the day consisted of unpacking boxes, cleaning, painting, scrubbing, and a few drinks in between.
And of course, with a LARGE trip to Target!
I’m liking the thought of keeping the interior brick as is.

Sadly, the common theme of gettin crafty 1 and gettin crafty 2 is that they both look best from the distance. In any case, a little extra gold accent never hurts, even with noticeable paint marks 🙂
Yes please to some waynes coating 🙂 White trim, new light fixture, and some cute furniture for the dining room!
