First studio apartment pics!




Yup! Actual pics of my first studio apartment!! I got the keys today (OMG!) and cleaned out the cleaning supply section at CVS. The apt was already super clean, but since I'm a neurotic freak, I had to sweep, mop, wipe down every surface, etc.

So.

Exhausted.

Seriously.

But the studio looks gorgeous and everything inside is completely brand new. Awesomeness. I start moving stuff over tomorrow and will take things over little by little. I've still got my sublet for a while, so there's no pressure to hurry and get out. But...I really want to get to my place. All of the goods (furniture, bed, kitchen stuff) are on the way.

Yesterday, I went to Macy's (9 floors of shopping temptation) and spent a couple of hours picking a bed. I tested almost every mattress (the sales guy prob loved that) and kept calling my friend for her opinion on what brand/size, etc. It's a big investment and I wanted to pick a great bed.

And shocker, but I had no clue what I needed for a kitchen or how to even get started. My awesome friend linked me to everything I needed (heart her) and I just clicked and ordered.

Tomorrow, I've got to move stuff over and awesome friend is bringing other awesome friend #2 with power tools to hang curtains. I might have to take pics of this. It could be interesting. :)

Cable/Internet will be hooked up in the middle of next week, so of course, I'm super excited about that. At least I have Internet at local cafes to use until then.

I'm ridiculously excited/nervous about my own place. But I already feel at home in that neighborhood because I know it and love it. Some of the coolest things? Groceries delivered to your door and laundry service. I really do love that. Very much. :)

I'll keep posting progress pics when I can. I'm crazy-busy packing and moving stuff over, but it's such a big deal that I want to keep documenting it.

Back to packing...

Sweet! It's really beautiful. You have so much natural light. I'm jealous. You're going to have absolutely beautiful garden windows or a nice little kitty perch! And those floors are wonderful.
