The Flamingo

This weekend, we move.


I am beyond thrilled. 

I feel like the past three months have been this fake life where I wear sweatpants everyday, eat junk food, gain 10 pounds (no joke), stare at the computer screen and wait for my life to start, in this strange alien place where it's 70 degrees outside and it's sunny everyday and it's winter or spring or whatever -- it all looks and feels the same.

It's starting this weekend, people! We stopped by the apartment the other day because our new mattress was being delivered, so here is a sneak peak of the new place.

We live in a pink triplex. I have decided right this second to call it The Flamingo. (Subject to Dan's approval). Our place is in the back, up the stairs. 

You walk into our living room. Dan may be in shadows here, but the room gets a ton of bright natural light, thanks to two windows.

Our kitchen has all new appliances, including my very first garbage disposer. (This may be funny to West Coasters, but I used one for the first time maybe a week ago at Ara's house. Dan totally yelled at me because I forgot to turn the water on. I didn't know! They are not so common where I come from.) Our kitchen is big enough to hold a dining table to seat four.

We're planning to use our spare bedroom as an office/library. But it also has its own closet and plenty of storage space.

This photo is not so convincing but our bathroom is actually white. It's small (about the same size as our New York bathroom), but the tub, sink and toilet all look new(ish).

We have a huge bedroom. This has never happened to us before, so we're not sure what to do with the all this space! Isn't our mattress pretty?

Our favorite part? The bedroom opens up to the pink balcony, which will be home to our grill, small table and two chairs and plants -- oh and our washer and dryer. It's out there, which is sort of weird, but hello, we have a washer and dryer! We are planning to cover it up when it's not in use.

Soon enough, this place will be filled with boxes, and I imagine we will be living in a messy state of chaos for the next few weeks (months?).

But at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Oh, yeah, and I happen to start my new job on Monday. So I have some stuff going on. FINALLY! I've rested enough. Bring it on.
