I've had things to say, but part of the problem is we don't have internet at our house yet. It's been ordered and the hardware is on the way in the mail. Not sure if there is an actual place to hook it up in our house as, it seems the last people had cable. We're trying to avoid the expensive installation fee. We shall see.
I even took pictures this morning of our (almost) beautiful apartment to post today, but I can't find my camera-to-computer cord. I remember seeing it in the living room before we moved, but can't remember what box it got put in. Hmmm.
Our house is in a state of evolving fabulousness. Last weekend, I laid our rugs out (one in the living room and one in the dining) and put out the last of Julia's china and my champagne flutes (bought 24 for $2 at a rummage sale in Bji). I'm really not in love with my beige rugs any more and would like to do something more fun, but rugs cost money and this summer is devoted to getting out of my new-job-need-new-clothes debt. The dining room also needs a new table and chairs. The chandelier definitely leaves something to be desired. It's straight out of "Home Interiors". I've been keeping a close eye on craigslist - if only I had a pickup truck, I could have gotten a bunch of good deals on beautiful vintage furniture.
I also spent the good part of Saturday getting rid of all the grime in the bathroom. Including scraping the excess paint off of the window and plastic wall tile (gawd I hate that ugly plastic wall tile.) Ahh, a clean bathroom makes me happy every time I enter:)
And goodness every wall needs to be painted. Our landlord is offering to reduce our rent for the month we paint, as well as pay for the paint! So, I need to get my butt to Benjamin Moore to pick up some paint chips. I've never painted before, so this scares me a little, but it can't be that bad, right?
Recently, I've been taking advantage of all of the gorgeous peonies in our yard and bringing big, beautiful, ant-filled bouquets into our house. I can't wait until the lilies bloom!
