In the past 4.5 years (since May 2011, to be exact) I have lived in 8 different locations. (4 of those have been with Mike!) WHY MUST WE KEEP MOVING?! This is getting ridiculous.

Anyway, this past weekend we moved into our new apartment! I'm definitely bummed to leave our old place, but the rent would have gone up $400 if we renewed our lease... yeah, NO THANKS. So far I really like the new apartment! The layout is a little weird in places (our closets are IN the bathrooms? odd.) but I think that's just new apartment stuff that we'll get used to pretty quickly.

 

I'm veryyyy happy that the move itself is over-- it wasn't too stressful this time around (probably because we're like experts now, also our amazing friends and my parents helped us A TON! love you guys <3) but dang, moving takes a LOT of time! I have missed my free time after work-- it's been taken over by packing (last week) and unpacking! (this week). But as of right now, we're basically done. YAY! 

 

So just wanted to check in and say HIIII and share a few pictures of the new place :) I'm planning to do another video tour soon (here's the one I did in Rochester, and here's the one from our last apartment!) to show you guys around!

bedroom! we arranged it exactly like the last place, but it's a LOT smaller so it feels like we're in bizarro world

These are our closet doors- sliding mirror doors. You'll get a better idea of what's going on with the closet/bathroom situation when I do an actual video. This picture is confusing...

In unrelated news... still struggling with this commenting system. I learned that the issues I'm having with comments (when people who read my posts via email leave a comment, their comments go into this weird parallel universe where no one except me can see it) are from my email provider. And they don't know how long it'll be to fix it. UGH. So that stinks. All that said, I'm still playing around with it. If you're reading this via email and you leave a comment, I'll get it but it might not show up on the "normal" site. You can delete the weird tracking info on the end of the URL of the blog post and that should take care of it until I can get a better fix :)

 

 

When's the last time you moved?
