We're In!

We officially moved into our new place on Wednesday. It's been super exciting...and everything seems to be falling into place! We just got our cable and internet hooked back up today, and our new furniture arrived, which is AWESOME. I'll take some photos when it's lighter out. Here's a quick shot of the outside:


And here's the bedroom set that we got today:

We got the bed, dresser (without the mirror), and 2 nightstands. This, obviously, is the photo from the store's website, but let me tell you - it looks even better in person!

The only downfall right now is that we don't have our gas turned on. We figured it would only take a few days - and in fact, they can't come turn it on until Wednesday of next week. Are you kidding?! So, without gas, we have no heat, hot water, or a stove. Thank goodness for one of the gals at work who brought me a few space heaters for the next few days! Ha! I guess we learned our lesson the hard way! Luckily, we have a membership to a gym only a few miles away, so that's where we've been showering each day.

One thing I'm really loving is that our landlord is very flexible in letting us decorate the way we want. As long as we're careful with the painting, we can change whatever colors we like. So, this has been my project for this evening:

I love the colors we chose and will definitely keep you all updated with the new and improved Michael house! There are few things I love more than painting and decorating my home. It's something I've really missed getting to do over the last year and a half. Now, I'm going to have to make up for all that lost time...oh, the people at Home Goods will know me by name very soon!

Anyways, I promise to get back to my regularly scheduled blogging after all this craziness has dissapated.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
